The Weight Loss Cheat Sheet You Need

Modern society makes getting healthy and weight loss harder than ever. We’re conditioned to believe that we need rock-hard abs and a perfectly round peach to be considered fit and healthy. While often this viewpoint isn’t always realistic, it is necessary to focus on keeping your body in a healthy condition.

There are various debates surrounding the best weight loss tips and what diets we should or shouldn’t be following. It gets confusing – how do you know what’s best for you? We believe your main goal should be your health while the aesthetic benefits of losing weight should come second.

However, it gets frustrating when you feel you are trying hard to get healthy and live an active lifestyle but you reap no benefits and you’re not losing weight. Take a look at why you’re not seeing any results:

Some reasons you’re not losing weight

  • You’re eating an excess of calories without realising it. You may think you’re eating healthy food but if you’re still consuming too many calories, you will struggle to lose weight.
  • You’re not sleeping enough. Sleep is highly underrated but may be just as important as eating healthy and exercising. Studies show that poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity, as it’s linked to an 89% increased risk of obesity in children and 55% in adults.
  • You’re consuming too many carbs and too little protein.
  • You’re lacking vital nutrients like amino acids that help with natural fat burn.

Some tips to be extra healthy

1. Track your daily calorie intake

By tracking your calorie intake you can keep track of how much you’re consuming. You can identify if you’re overeating or if you’re eating the wrong types of food. You can track your calories easily on your phone using a food tracking app.

To lose weight, you need to ensure you’re eating a healthy calorie deficit. We suggest not be consuming more than 1200 calories per day, but this is on condition that you are receiving a monthly Myers cocktail IV Vitamin Therapy treatment. By getting this vitamin drip, you will make up for the short fall of vitamins and minerals with the lower calories.

2. Drink more water

Studies show that drinking water can boost metabolism by 24 – 30% over a period of 1 – 1.5 hours, helping you burn off a few more calories. If you drink 500ml of water 30mins before eating, you are also more likely to consume fewer calories.

It is recommended that you drink 35ml/kg of your body weight per day in order for you to consume your needed daily water intake.

3. Try exercise regularly

Keeping active is a great way to keep healthy while helping you lose weight. Regular exercise reduces your risk of various chronic diseases, keeps your body healthy and is a fun way to release some built up stress.

4. Eat more whole foods

People are eating more highly processed foods than ever before. While processed foods are convenient, they often lack nutrients and increase your risk of chronic diseases.

Simply eating more real foods can help you get healthier with minimal effort. Real foods tend to have more fibre and are packed with vitamins and minerals.

5. Avoid refined sugar

The most important part is to cut back on sugars and starches (carbs). When you do that, your hunger levels will go down and you end up eating much fewer calories.

Now instead of burning carbs for energy, your body starts feeding off of stored fat. Another benefit of cutting carbs is that it lowers insulin levels, causing your kidneys to shed excess sodium and water out of your body. This reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight.

It is not uncommon to lose large amounts of fat in the first week of eating this way, both body fat and water weight.

6. Don’t starve yourself

Intermittent fasting has become a popular trend in the weight loss community and when done right, it can have a positive result. But starving yourself and limiting the number of calories you consume to the extreme can have the opposite effect as your body will go into survival mode and hold onto everything you consume.

7. Don’t set unrealistic expectations

It is great to have goals you want to reach but make sure these goals are realistic. Set smaller goals that are reachable throughout your journey and be patient with the process.

8. Use VitaFuzion’s weight loss treatment

This new IV Vitamin Therapy Treatment drip is a concentrated dose of amino acids that facilitate the fat burning process.

Weight Loss Treatment

A healthy weight loss journey requires understanding how your body breaks down fatty acids.

Our IV vitamin drip helps with the transportation of fatty acids to the mitochondria. Many vegans and vegetarians are encouraged to take this IV VItamin drip as their diets often lack amino acids as it is primarily found in animal products.

This drip administered once a week for 4 weeks. Read more about the benefits of this vitamin drip here.
