I have been blogging about easy tips to losing a pound a week. Most of the ideas are commonplace. One area that is often overlooked is food sensitivities. If you experience food sensitivities, you may actually crave foods that don't agree with your system. These foods can create problems with your system, causing inflammation, stomach, sinus, and skin issues. Identifying and eliminating food sensitivities can lead to weight loss. Common culprits are corn, dairy, soy, eggs, tomatoes, and gluten. Stress is another huge factor in weight loss. If you have constant low grade stress (which most of us do), your body can be storing fat because your body is planning for starvation. Exercise is a great way to burn off extra cortisol caused by the low grade stress. Have a great day! Shanna
I started a list last week of ideas to help lose a pound of weight a week. Here are a few more ideas to add to that list:
Eat mindfully - take your time at meals. Put your fork down after each bite. You will most likely find yourself eating less. Another trick is to make eye contact with each person at the table after each bite or drink of beverage.
Avoid genetically modified foods - corn and soy are the biggest culprits. Try to buy these foods only organic.
Move - incorporate movement into your entire day. If you struggle with finding a block of time to work out, try to move as much as possible throughout the day. Don't avoid the stairs and long walks to your car.
Cut down on dairy.
