Weight loss, I’ve come to learn, is more than just the food you eat. There is an entire whole body approach that ensures loosing and maintaining it a healthy way. These are 5 essential keys I tend to focus on when overhauling my health and diet, including a natural probiotic for digestive system balance.
The foundation to any good weight loss journey is your mindset with food. A good meal plan is first on the list for me. Consumption, in type and quantity translates into many things. Energy seems to be directly related to the type of food you eat. Fill your body with more of the super foods (those foods that are packed with nutrients that help improve your overall health) and less of the ones that run you down and pack on the pounds (like sugar, oils, fats, and certain grains). Find the foods and plan that works best for you.
Next, on most anyone’s list is exercise. A good fitness plan is key to then burn off the extra calories and fat you have stored. I always start with a good cardio routine. Things like walking, dancing, parking further, taking the stairs are all simple ways to add a little movement to your everyday. Strength training is next. Once I’ve found a good rhythm with my cardio I’ll add in a few days of weights and strength training. You’ll be shedding those pounds and want to tighten up all that loose skin from the fat loss.
Water, something we all need to survive. What I’ve discovered is loosing weight is a whole lot easier when you increase your intake. You’re trying to rid your body of all those impurities so what better than natures own lubricant. With your increased activity you’ll need to up the ounces anyways.
Probiotics, you’ve probably heard of them by now. Did you know they can be key to improving good gut bacteria. In fact B. Infantis, one of the bacterias found in Insync Probiotic, is doctor recommended. Probiotics help to balance the bacteria in your stomach. With 6 strains of bacteria and GI guard, the #NaturalProbiotic in Insync are built to withstand your harsh stomach acid. You can find Insync Probiotics at Walgreens.
As a mom sleep is at a premium. I think it’s common sense that the amount of sleep you get is cyclical. More sleep equals more energy, more energy equals more time to exercise and be productive, being more productive and alert equates to a better diet and a happier self. All of these things tie into stress and your ability to shed those pounds.
I’m still on that journey to a healthy life and optimum weight goal. These 5 essentials have been helping me keep my goal in check. When one thing gets out of balance I see an equal tip of the scale. Figure out how you can best balance diet, fitness, water, sleep, and supplements for good nutrient balance and digestive system balance.
