Tips to Fast-Tracking your Weight-Loss Program – O2B Healthy NZ

When it comes to new year’s resolutions, it’s no surprise that losing weight is near the top of a lot of lists. Like many Western countries, New Zealand has an obesity problem, with nearly a third of adults being dangerously overweight according to the New Zealand Health Survey. Losing weight requires a lot of lifestyle changes, including sticking to an exercise and diet regime. Still, even though they feel like they’re doing everything right, a lot of people still aren’t getting the results they would want.

While there are plenty of reasons why this might be the case, and a few simple changes could make all the difference. Here are our top tips for fast-tracking your weight loss program. With any luck, you’ll find the thing that is holding you back – and see the kilos fall off in no time at all.

Cut the carbs

With diet, there is a lot of information out there and not a lot of consensus. Some people say that carbohydrates are best avoided, while others say its saturated fats. When it comes down to it, it all depends how much you eat and how much you burn. The reason for all the advice around cutting carbs is mostly because it reduces your appetite, helping you not to overeat. Without excess fuel, your body starts burning excess fat for energy – after all, fat is just the way your body stores energy long-term. Broccoli, tomatoes, cabbage and cauliflower are all low in carbohydrates, so be sure to cook up plenty of them.

Up the protein – big time

In a very tasty form of subtraction by addition, you can help your weight loss program by switching to a high-protein diet. Academic studies have shown that protein is very good at facilitating weight loss. That’s because it boosts your metabolism, meaning your burn energy faster, and reduces your appetite, stopping those late-night chocolate cravings. Fat is also fine – meats, eggs, fish and dairy are all good things to incorporate into your meals with plenty of vegetables. If you’re having trouble figuring out how to get enough protein in your diet, try O2B Healthy’s Whey Lite powder. It’s 90% whey protein and is fortified with other nutrients to help weight loss – and it blends into a creamy, tasty smoothie.

Hit the gym

Weight loss is mostly diet, and although exercising three or four times a week is a good health choice, it’s not strictly necessary to lose weight. That being said, it definitely helps to fast track the process. When your body loses weight, it automatically slows down your metabolism. That makes sense, as it thinks you’re short on food and is trying to conserve more of what you’re eating. Exercising, particularly strength exercises like lifting weights, keeps that metabolism going and directly burns energy. Just remember your protein shake for afterwards!

Use healthy, natural supplements

Several natural weight loss supplements have been proven to help your regular biochemical processes along as they burn fat. The skin of the Garnicia fruit contains a compound which inhibits a fat-synthesising enzyme and boosts your serotonin, which reduces your appetite and food cravings. That’s why Garnicia supplements are used across the world as a proven weight management aid. Or try O2B Healthy’s L-Carnitine to help burn fat and build muscle faster, as well as helping you feel less tired. Carnitine is the nutrient in your body which transports fatty acids into mitochondria, where they are broken down. Boosting your intake helps this process along – you are literally fast-tracking your weight-loss program!
