Anyone serious about losing weight/fat should get the free app ”My Fitness Pal” or some other program on their phone or computer that tracks your intake of calories, carbohydrates, fat etc. Your blood type will determine whether an adjustment for calories, carbohydrates or fats is needed. Knowing your blood type will help with these calculations. Healthy Herb Vitamin Wellness Center can do a simple finger prick to determine your blood type in minutes.
Get a copy of “Digestive Type” from Healthy Herb Vitamin Wellness Center to determine a possible digestive problem. Not digesting food well keeps the body in a constant state of “need more food”. As we age the digestive system does not work as efficiently, bloating after meals is a sure sign of poor digestion. Proper digestion is necessary for any long term successful weight/fat loss program.
Women need to have their doctor check their hormone levels. An imbalance between estrogen/progesterone/testosterone affects how your body burns/ stores body fat and water retention. The same for men – low testosterone has an effect on weight/fat loss.
Thyroid underactivity determines how the body handles calories and fat burning. Have your doctor check TSH, T3, T4 levels and get a “Thyroid Appraisal” form from Healthy Herb Vitamin Wellness Center to help identify symptoms of thyroid underactivity.
Put together an exercise program. Keep it simple- walking in the Mall, on a treadmill, or stationary bike 20 to 30 minutes 3x a week. Exercise burns calories and fat, improves circulation, improves sleep and the list goes on and on.
CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a fatty acid which helps burn fat around the middle while increasing lean muscle tissue. CLA inhibits an enzyme that breaks down fat so it cannot be absorbed or stored on the body. CLA can reduce existing fat deposits also.
