Drop 5kgs FAST!
If you are struggling to shift weight, there could be several things stopping you from achieving your goals. Here are a few little tips that may help you drop those extra KGs you're looking for!
Drink Black Coffee: Black coffee is a low-calorie diuretic that helps your body past fluid and reduces puffiness. Coffee is a great addition to your daily routine and has many other health benefits.
Avoid foods high in sodium: Diets high in sodium increase blood pressure levels. High blood pressure damages the kidneys over time and is a leading cause of kidney failure. Sodium can increase the amount of water your body retains. This can cause you to feel bloated and make you hold water weight.
Replace Starchy Carbs with Veggies: Not all carbs are created equal, and the ones that aren’t as good for us—the simple carbs in white pasta, rice, bread, etc.—are particularly crave-able and it's easy to eat too many. Swapping carbs for Veggies at night when we burn less energy, is a great way to minimise calories.
Fasted Cardio: A fasted state is one in which you have completely digested and absorbed your last meal/snack and your insulin levels are at a low or baseline level. The idea is that when you work out when you haven't eaten recently, you are burning fat—aka stored energy—versus the energy from the food that you just consumed.
