10 Quick Tips To Lose Weight Fast
When Ms. Bougie gets the tea you know she is always ready to spill it. Like most bougie boo's, weight loss is always the topic of discussion. Is Dr. Miami having a sale? Who's table are we going to lay on? What pill or drink is gonna magically turn me into an hourglass sensation? The list goes on! In order to get my snap back I decided that I needed to actually snap back into reality. I have done the research and have put together 10 quick tips to lose weight fast.
#1 Cleanse your colon.
We flush the toilet to get rid of the waste, right? So why aren't you cleansing your colon to get rid of toxins? Our colon on average can hold 10-20 lbs of uneliminated waste in it at all times. If you are looking for a quick and easy way cleaning out your colon than try our 7 or 14 day Colon Cleanse On The Rocks and remember the road to health begins with colon detoxing. Increase your water while cleansing, thank me later!
#2 Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juices.
Don't you just love a glass of strawberry lemonade with the sugar on the rim, hence The Cheesecake Factory? PAUSE!!!! How in the world are you supposed to maintain a healthy lifestyle and you're smiling at the thought of that drink cascading down your throat. This is a big "no, no" as sugary drinks and fruit juice are some of the most fattening things that you can put into your body. Avoiding them at all cost can help you lose weight fast. We know how hard it will be to give up some of these drinks so here are a few healthy alternatives:
- Sparkling Water with Fruit comes with that fizz you love from soda but minus the sugar and calories.
- Coconut Water is a great alternative just make sure to purchase one without the added sugar.
- WTRMLN WTR no that's not a typo, Ms. Smarty Pants, this drink is sold by Beyonce and made with 2 ingredients: watermelon and a squeeze of organic lemon.
- Homemade Smoothies allow you to choose what goes into your drink. Get creative, mix it up and add whatever non sugar items needed to form your favorite flavor.
Cut the Sugar; you're sweet enough!
#3 Eat soluble fiber.
I know you're probably ready to scroll past this tip. Who in the world eats things that looks like bird food mixed with some oats? Don't knock it before you try it! Fiber is so essential with losing weight fast, not to mention it aids in smooth bowel movements. You can't be Bougie on constipation mode! Base most of your diet on whole foods. They are healthier, more filling and much less likely to cause overeating. Processed foods are packed with calories, low in nutrients and increase your risk of many diseases. Ms. Bougie does not have time to put her nurse hat on when you wander of into the unhealthy streets. Foods containing high levels of soluble fiber include dried beans, oats, oat bran, rice bran, barley, citrus fruits, apples, strawberries, peas, and potatoes. Remember we are eating to live not living to eat!
#4 Drink Matcha Tea
Before we proceed , let's get the word straight before you go bragging and being Bougie to ya girls. It is macha like macho... please don't pronounce the T. Back to basics, this tea supercharges your weight loss regimen. The EGCG in matcha will boost your metabolism and enhance your weight loss. Matcha tea also helps to keep the body from storing excess fat while suppressing your appetite. So in Bougie, that means it cuts the fat and will keep you looking like a snack! Catechins help to burn fat quickly and it also speeds up the metabolic process during and after exercising and it is one of the many powerful components in Matcha.It also lowers your bad cholesterol and keeps your blood sugar levels in check. Try our Meet Your Matcha which is equivalent to 10 cups of steeped green tea. You can’t be bougie if you haven’t had a glass of our Matcha Tea!
#5 Eat your food slowly.
Chew your food like my husband Ghost (from Power) is watching you. The food is not going anywhere; savor the flavor. Fast eaters gain more weight over time. When you eat food quickly it curbs the release of certain gut hormones that make you feel full. That results in your brain not recognizing that it's time to stop dining and that may lead to overeating. When you eat slowly it makes you feel more full and boosts weight-reducing hormones.
#6 Drink water a half hour before meals.
Numerous studies have shown that drinking water a half hour before meals increased weight loss by 44% over 3 months. The reasoning behind this is that drinking water before meals provides a sense of fullness which can result in consuming less calories at those meal and will ultimately lead to weight loss. And the best part of this tip is that it is a relatively cheap option for weight loss. It is okay to be Bougie on a budget. Don't count my coins, count ya carbs!
#7 Drink coffee.
Girl, have you tried the Kris Kringle coffee at QuickChek? If you are a not a coffee drinker then you should know that coffee can boost your metabolism by 3–11%. It stimulates thermogenesis which helps you burn more fat. Coffee also contains the helpful weight loss aid "Chlorogenic acid" which is capable of slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates and breaking down fat. Don't over indulge on the amounts of coffee you drink everyday as our bodies can become immune to the fat burning benefits. Another plus is that coffee can reduce your appetite which needs no explanation! Don't forget to skip the creamer and sugar but stick with the honey. If you must use sugar, use the stevia leaf sugar substitute.
#8 Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods.
Incorporate most of your diet on whole foods. They are healthier, more filling and much less likely to cause overeating. While processed foods are more convenient, it's a fact that they are unhealthy and are packed with calories, are low in nutrients and increase your risk of many diseases. Some examples of whole foods include whole grains, tubers, legumes, fruits, vegetables. If you eat a lot of meat then look for labels that say Cage-free, Free-range, Grass-fed, Grass-finished, Natural, No added hormones, No antibiotics and Organic. And I saw you last week at Mc Donalds getting a number 8 and a side salad. Cut ya mess and get it together.
#9 Get a good night's sleep, every night.
Poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for weight gain, so taking care of your sleep is important. Research has shown increases in weight when people get fewer than seven hours of sleep a night. Another factor is the body makes more of the hormones ghrelin and less leptin which leaves you hungry and with an increase to your appetite. The optimum amount of sleep to get every night to live a long healthy life is seven hours of sleep. Now don't go sleeping on the job; Ms. Bougie does not have anything to do with that. Once upon a pound Ladies!
#10 Try some weight loss drops.
Sometimes a head start may be needed to kick start your weight loss journey. It took me a few head starts, pull backs, headlocks, and uppercuts to get myself on the right path. I used to convince myself that I needed a summer body or a vacation physique when that was ALL WRONG. You can look great but those insides could be tow' up from the flo up! Ms. Smarty Pants that is no typo, I'm from the South! Healthy living is a lifestyle, not a trend! Sorry, had to get a little sentimental with ya! Back to the drops, all you need is 5 seconds three times a day to burn unwanted fats and to suppress your appetite. The bottle is also discreet which allows you to keep it with you on the go. Bottoms up!
