5 out of 5 stars from 1 rating of 3 easy steps to kick start your weight loss

Gaining weight seems to be faster than losing weight for some of us and I am one of them. I have been on the weight gain roller coaster for many years. Sometimes, I would just give up and start looking into ways to buy clothes that would fit me.

Along these years, I have compiled many mistakes we do to lose weight. One of which is crash diet, crash diet is known to many of us but, we do it unknowingly. We have to realize that we cannot quit eating junk or processed food in the split second or within a day. Just like cigarette, sugar and junk are addictive.

I have came out with a 3 easy steps to kick start your weight loss. This 3 easy steps has worked for me and I hope it will help you too. I am not a physician, dietitian or a doctor so, please consult your doctor before taking any medications if you are currently under one.


Step 1: Replenish Your System

The food industries are booming with processed food which becomes our staple diet and as we age, our system lacks in Pre biotic, Pro biotic and enzymes. These bacteria are good bacteria which are essential for good digestion.

  • Pre biotic can be found in food such as cooked onions, raw garlic, raw dandelion greens, etc.
  • Pro biotic can be found in fermented food such as yogurt, tofu, kimchi, etc.
  • Enzymes can be found mainly in meat but, most of the times we fry or barbecue them. This kills the enzymes found in them. By eating stew meat or slow cooked meat is beneficial for absorbing enzymes into your body. Besides meat, nuts, vegetable and fruits also contain enzymes.

Most people do not eat these food in large quantity as it may taste unpleasant, inaccessible or they are not aware of them. Thus, you can consume it in capsules form.


Step 2: Light exercises

Including light exercises together with a healthy diet is necessary to sustain and lose weight effectively. I started my weight loss journey by doing light exercise using the pedometer. I used the pedometer to jog or walk on the spot to obtain the desired goal of steps.

Try to include a daily movement of at least 1500 steps which can be split into 3 parts, in the morning, afternoon and night. This will be a great kick start for your weight loss and sooner you will be motivated to hit the gym.

Step 3: Include Nutrients Into Your Diet

Eating processed and convenient foods slows down our digestive system and metabolism. This causes weight gain and eventually you end up with medical complications. So, why do people still eat them? A survey taken in America shows that, most Americans are not aware of the complications that can be caused by eating processed food. Moreover, these food are cheap and convenient for working adults.

If you are intending to lose your weight and live a healthy life style, try including nutrients that are essential for your body. To be honest, I do not take as much vegetables compared to eating meat or fruits. I started juicing my vegetables after knowing about an Australian business man name Joe Cross who appeared on Dr. Oz’s show. He went through a 60 days juice diet and lost a remarkable amount of weight.

I found an inspiring youtube video based on a "10 days juice diet result" by an youtuber toyabooview. She was able to crawl out of high cholestrol after having a 10 day juice diet. If you are not able to sustain a juice diet for 10 days, try including Juice into any of your meals 2 times a day before your meal. Including juice helps your cells to absorb essential nutrients and minerals rapidly. Our organs are made out of thousands of cells and they require essential nutrients and minerals to function effectively. By juicing your vegetables and fruits, they are rapidly absorbed into your blood stream and nourish your cells with the required nutrients. This is a great way to obtain large amount of nutrients, if you are not a big fan of vegetables. Eventually, you will start liking the taste of vegetables and fruits. At this stage, you can phase out to eat them in solid form.
