1. Avoid Estrogen Promoting Foods….like soy food, edamame, soy lattes, soy protein. Soy promotes fat gain! (No soy in the Isagenix protein shakes)
2. Have Cheat Meals-yes I said cheat meals once a week to spike the #1 fat burning hormone, leptin. By always being on a diet can lower your leptin which can drop your metabolism and store more fat. Live a lifestyle not a diet .. moderation is golden.
3. Have your fat calories replace your carb calories. This can balance your hormones for effective burn fat.
4. Detoxify your body with a healthy cleanse. Toxins are stored in your fat cells making them even more stubborn to lose the fat. (Isagenix Cleanse for Life do 2 day cleanses for fat loss, boost energy and look younger)
5. Moderate intensity training for cardio and weight lifting.
6. Lower your stress level which will lower your cortisol. Meditation, Working Out, Nutrition, Adaptogenic Herbs will help you with that. (Isagenix Ionix Supreme mineral drink with adaptogenic herbs once to twice a day to keep stress levels low)
7. Water-Drink at least 1/2 your body weight (lbs) in ounces of water. Example, if you weigh 160 pounds you need to drink 80 ounces of water minimum. More if you are working out.
8. Sleep 7-8 hours every night to maximize your fat burning.
9. Eat more protein-if you are active exercising you should have 75% of your body weight in grams of protein each day. Example, if you weigh 160 pounds you need 120 grams of protein every day. Muscle takes up less room that fat, speeds up your metabolism and strengthens your immune system. No exercise is 50% of your body weight in gram of protein. Isagenix meal replacement or post work-out options are 24grams or 36grams .. very tasty in Dutch Chocolate, French Vanilla, Strawberry Cream, plant based Vanilla Chai/Rich Chocolate
