Now, there may not be one secret to getting slim but there are plenty of tips and tricks you can use to help you get there. You’ve already committed yourself to living a healthy lifestyle so let’s make sure you’re getting the best results you can!
Here are 3 things you should definitely do to make sure you’re on the right track to your weight-loss goal!
1. Give Up Sugar Water
What is sugar water? It’s Coke, Fruit Juice, Vitamin Water, Sweet Tea, and Energy Drinks. Studies have shown that artificial sweeteners slow down metabolism, preventing your body from burning as much calories per day. If you’re trying to get slim and healthy, water will be your new best friend.
2. Eat before and after your workout
Eating the right foods at the right time will save your life. Okay, maybe not that dramatic, but it is extremely important. Eating the right foods before and after your workout will help you build lean muscle and burn more fat. It can also help your body heal after intense training.
To find out what are the right foods you should be eating before and after your workout, check out our post HERE. Plus we included an awesome recipe that could work post AND pre-workout.
3. Always Eat Your Breakfast
When you wake up, your body is desperate for nutrition because it’s been a while since you’ve eaten anything. Skipping breakfast can lead to a lower metabolism and it can cause you to overeat at the end of the day. Any breakfast is better than no breakfast but try to have a lot of protein to start off your day to trigger muscle growth.
