A Few “Very Naturopathic” Weight Loss Tips

1. Always eat breakfast! Breakfast helps to kick start our metabolism and increase our metabolic rate for the whole day. By including protein in your first meal of the day you will also stay full and satisfied for longer.
2.Cook with coconut oil as much as possible. Our bodies have trouble storing the fat from coconut oil so as soon as we eat it we burn it!! This also encourages fat loss.
3.Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and add lemon and/ or a pinch of cayenne to your water. The lemon increases liver detox and the cayenne can help stimulate weight loss.
4.Do not eat three hours before bedtime. You don’t need the fuel right before bedtime, and eating late at night can also interfere with melatonin production, preventing you from getting the rest you need.
6.Try and get 8 hours of sleep a night. Proper sleep helps decrease cortisol levels. High cortisol levels are associated with weight gain. Additionally, when we have enough sleep we have more energy to exercise and less of a tendency to make poor choices when eating.
7. Try and be active EVERYDAY. Even if it is just a 30 minute power walk, at least you are getting your body moving. However, to encourage weight loss you have to sweat, so when you do go to the gym or for a run make sure to work at a level that you are perspiring at.
