Amazing Body Slimming Tips for Weight Loss

Updated on July 7, 2015

Why Do We Get Fat?

Have you ever wondered why we tend to gain fat in the tummy area, thighs, arms and buttocks?

Well it’s because these areas are where most of the fat cells exist.

As we gain weight these fat cells become bigger making the once trim slim areas to double or even triple in size.

Alternatives to Exercise

Some of us find exercising to be impossible to do due to lack of time and other commitments.

So another option is to find other alternatives which can help us burn fat fast but with minimum time and effort.

Thanks to modern technology we are able to do this - lose weight without exercising. Let’s have a look at some of these ways.


What Are Weight Loss Shakes

Meal replacement shakes and powder drinks for weight loss became popular during the late 70’s when SlimFast was introduced.

So how do these weight loss shakes work to help shed excess pounds? These shakes are made from low-calorie ingredients which contain nutrients similar to that found in a balanced diet. By reducing the intake of calories you consume your body is able to lose weight.

Recently homemade weight loss shake recipes have been posted on the internet claiming it’s a good alternative to the commercially made ones if a person is concerned about preservatives and are unable to afford the meal replacement shakes sold in the market. Here’s an interesting video of how to make a homemade weight loss shake for those of you looking for one.

Best Weight Loss Shakes

High quality weight loss shakes will be nutritious and be made from ingredients that have the power to burn fat fast and help with weight-loss. Plus these shakes will also be packed with fiber that helps to get rid of toxins from the body.

Slim Fast is by far the best weight loss shake in my books. But there are a few more which many have tried and claimed is just as effective. Listed below are a few such weight loss shakes.

Met-Rx Meal Replacement and Ultramet Champion Nutrition. Both varieties that are high protein meal replacement shakes.

Two popular types of low-calorie meal replacement shakes are:



Meal Replacement Shakes Vs. Protein Shakes

Some people get confused with the difference between meal replacement shakes and protein shakes.

Meal replacement shakes are made to replace one or even two of your normal meals hence increasing your chances of losing weight.

Protein shakes on the other hand are lacked with protein but contains low calories since it usually has minimum or no carbohydrates and fats. But it cannot be replaced as a meal like meal replacement shakes.


Green Smoothies

Some people who are not too fond of meal replacement shakes turn to drinking green smoothies to help with weight loss.

Green smoothies are made from ingredients that help with digestion (good news for those who want to remove toxins from the body), promote healthy skin and hair plus improve one’s energy.

Making a green smoothie is not that difficult for all you need are a few basic ingredients which can usually be found in your pantry.

Check out the following video to get a brief idea of how to make a green smoothie.

Herbal Slimming Teas

Drinking herbal slimming teas are another easy way of losing weight.

Green tea and slimming teas made with Garcinia cambogia (Goraka) are great for helping burn fat fast.

These three countries have been making herbal teas for thousands of years to prevent and treat a variety of ailments and therefore have the experience and know how to produce safe and effective teas to help with weight loss.
