4 Simple Ways to Lose 10 Pounds Using Isotonix

I know, I know, another weight loss hub. There literally hundreds of ways to lose weight but few that give you a simple long term plan to keep the weight off. My goal isn't just to help people lose weight, but to keep it off and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Isotonic OPC-3 is a simple component to an overall plan that will help stimulate weight loss and boost your metabolism. How do I know? Well, I have lost 10 pounds with this method and I plan on losing another 10 before going onto a maintenance plan. If this is the first time you've heard of Isotonix or OPC-3, don't worry, just find the link at the end of this article to be directed to an explanation of it's power and testimonials.

#1. Eat junk food in moderation!
I cannot stress this enough. If this is not something you are ready to at least moderate, then don't bother reading the rest of this hub because it will be useless to you! Everyone has a sweet tooth for something that is not good for their body. I love anything with chocolate and peanut buttered combined like ice cream, peanut butter cups, candy..etc. The trick here is to moderate how much and how often you eat these foods. If you are eating the right amounts of protein, vegetables and fruits each day, then a serving or helping of your favorite sweet is ok. Eat a banana, a bowl of low sugar cereal with low sugar/low fat milk or Almond milk, a glass of V-8 Vegetable Juice (my favorite), and a mixture of OPC-3 (which I will explain later) for a balanced breakfast. Or you can also eat an egg or two. For lunch, eat a handful of almonds, another protein source and some snacks. For dinner, rotate some chicken or turkey into your mix of red meat with some grilled veggies. I love pasta too! If you want to mix your favorite treat in there somewhere, go for it. Just do your best to moderate the crappy food and you will see results.

#2. Drink your Vitamins!
You're probably thinking, huh? Drink my vitamins? I thought vitamins are nasty tasting pills I have to choke down. That's not the case at all! You can drink your vitamins and they actually taste good. Check out the complete line of Isotonix vitamins to search for what you need. At the very minimum OPC-3 is a must. This powerful antioxidant can help relieve a multitude a minor aches and pains not to mention it helps support a healthy and balanced immune system. The reason why I use this everyday as opposed to pills is because your body will actually absorb more of the vitamins if it is in the same form and pressure as your bodily fluids. Pills are not generally designed this way, so your body absorbs less of the nutrients. Isotonix literally means "same pressure" as your blood, sweat and tears and so this type of absorption by your body means it can recover and operate at its maximum level.

#3. Get Physical!
Notice I didn't use the dreaded word, excercise. You don't need to sign up for a pilates class, kickboxing aerobics and weight train with a trainer. You just need to do some kind of physical activity (not running from the police) that elevates your heart rate for at least 30 minutes. I personally love to run. I wake up each morning, stretch, leash my dog, and we go running for 30 minutes to an hour. I would like to eventually run a marathon or triathalon, but I digress. This last step is crucial weight loss because it's what's going to burn the calories and fat. Sitting on your rear end watching television is not going to burn enough calories. If you hate running, find some kind of sport or activity you enjoy and do it! This takes a little motivation to sustain, so if you need some, let me know and I can help. No joke, no fee, just pure motivation to get your butt out there burning calories and fat.

#4. Get plenty of rest!
This is the last step but certainly not the least. Many people severely underestimate the power of a good night's rest. I even love to take naps on the weekends and I don't feel lazy because I know during the week I worked hard and maintained physical activity. It's a nice reward! Since I run in the early morning, I make myself go to bed at 10pm because I know if I don't get at least 6-7 hours of sleep, I won't wake up for my run and I will feel like a failure for the rest of the day. Rest also helps with recovery after a hard workout. It allows your body to repair itself, rejuvinate its electrolytes and nutrients, and helps prevent injury.

Losing 10 or more pounds isn't rocket science. You need 4 simple actions which include monitoring junk food intake, vitamins, physical activity, and get plenty of rest. These combined will take you to your goals and beyond.One more thing, only weigh yourself on the morning after at least 8 weeks of consistent workouts. Otherwise, you will be discouraged with what seems like little progress from daily weigh ins and revert to old behaviors.

    Great tips. I have to say, the hardest one for me is the rest. I have realized recently that I can actually be more successful if I take the time to let my body recover. Not to mention, you will actually find yourself plateaud if you don't rest. Great hub with some great information!
