The Best Weight Loss Plan for Busy Parents

Your alarm goes off at 6 a.m. — just enough time to get yourself and your kids out the door. You log 8 hours at work (including 5 minutes to scarf down your lunch), then you rush to get kids to practice and make sure homework’s done. Maybe you top off the day with a dinnertime swing past the drive-thru. Once you get the kids to bed, you step on the scale to see your weight slowly creeping upward as your energy level goes the opposite direction.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Some small changes you can sprinkle throughout your day will help you get to a healthy weight without throwing off your schedule. Even better? You’ll have the chance to show your kids that there’s always time to make healthy choices.

How to Lose Your Belly Fat Quickly and Naturally

One of the biggest questions I get is “how do I lose my belly fat? I’ve tried several things but nothing worked”. When I ask what you tried I hear 100 daily sit-ups, cutting calories drastically, excess cardio, fat burners, etc.

If you can’t lose your belly fat, you’re using the wrong approach. You don’t need endless sit-ups, supplements, starving yourself or worse surgery. Here are the 10 best ways to lose your belly fat – quickly and naturally.

1. Stop Doing Crunches

Crunches will strengthen your stomach muscles, but won’t burn the belly fat that covers your abs. Spot reduction is a myth. You’re wasting time & effort doing 200 daily crunches.

Crunches can also cause lower back pain, slouching shoulders & forward head posture. The Reverse Crunch doesn’t cause these problems, but again: spot reduction is a myth. To lose your belly fat, you need more. Keep reading.

How Much Water You Need To Drink For Weight Loss

Drinking plenty of water is one of the major tenets of weight loss. But just how much water is ‘plenty?’

Losing weight requires a consistent commitment to several lifestyle choices: Eat healthier, exercise more, get 6-8 hours of sleep a night, and drink lots of water. Not only will choosing water over caloric and sugary beverages save you calories, but water is also essential for sharp brain function, keeping your organs working properly, and exercise recovery — to name a few important reasons. And if you’re reaching for detox water, it can help boost your metabolism and flush out toxins.

But just hearing that you need to drink “lots” of water can be confusing. For some people that could be the standard eight 8-ounce glasses, but others could need a lot more (or perhaps less). We tapped dietitian Jim White, RD, ACSM, and owner of Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studios, to find out just exactly how much water you should be drinking for weight loss.

5 Habits That Are Keeping You From Losing Those Last 10 Pounds

Nothing’s easy when it comes to weight loss. But dropping those last 10 pounds can be extra difficult.

Why is that? “As you lose weight, and especially if you’ve lost a significant amount, your metabolism slows down,” says Dana Hunnes, PhD, RD, an adjunct assistant professor and senior dietician at UCLA’s Fielding School of Public Health.

As you probably know, “metabolism” is expert shorthand for the energy—or calories—your body burns during the day. The more your metabolism slows, the harder it will be for you to keep shedding weight.

Why does your metabolism downshift? Dieting deprives your body of energy it’s accustomed to getting, says Bahram Arjmandi, PhD, a professor of nutrition at Florida State University. Sensing that your calorie intake has dropped, your body may slip into a kind of energy conservation mode, he says. That explains why those first 10 pounds fell off in jiff, but the last 10 have proved stickier.

You can counteract the roadblocks your body and metabolism throw up between you and your target weight by changing these habits.

9 Proven Ways To Lose Stubborn Belly Fat

And 1 really good reason why ignoring it is no longer an option

Flat abs made easier

Belly fat is maligned for its way of tampering with any outfit that doesn’t involve a muumuu, but really there’s something way worse about the stuff: When white fat expands in your abdomen, nestling deep among your organs, it sets you up for some serious health trouble. We now know that this type of fat, called visceral fat, churns out stress hormones like cortisol and inflammatory substances called cytokines that affect the body’s production of insulin. The result: It’s worse than just being generally overweight; you’re looking at increased risks of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

How to Lose Weight Fast: 10 Tips to Burn Fat Quickly

Here are my top 10 recommendations for how to lose weight fast:

1. Drink your water!

Increasing your water intake is both the simplest way to make a big change today, and also the most important step in weight loss! So, go get yourself a glass of water and start drinking right now… I’ll wait here while you get it.

Water naturally increases your metabolism, fills you up and flushes toxins. Make a goal of drinking a gallon of water a day, this will ensure your metabolism keeps rising, your belly stays full and you rid your body of all those toxins from food and life that can hinder weight loss efforts.

If you do not enjoy the flavor of water I recommend trying some of my metabolism boosting detox water recipes, they are delicious and are key to rapid weight loss!

Just be sure not to add flavor packets full of fake sugars and chemicals to your water, those will only hurt your weight loss and add pounds instead of remove them.
