Simple Lifestyle Hacks To Lose Weight

  •  Eat within a 9-hour window (AKA Time-Restricted Eating)

This isn’t looking at WHAT you eat, or when you eat it.  The window begins with your first cup of coffee to your last bite of food.  First substance that enters your mount upon waking to last substance that enters your mount upon sleeping.  This window includes supplements, medications (if possible), and water.  When you’re thirsty, by all means, have some plain water.  However, try to fully hydrate for the day within your 9-hour window.  Best part, it may begin whenever you need it to and can be modified around any special plans that day.

Eating within a 9-hour span not only helps keep weight healthy but increases lean muscle mass (without exercising!) and endurance.  You’ll get rid of fat easier, and benefit your mitochondria.  Try not to cheat more than once per week to maintain benefits.  Never eat in a window greater than 12-hours!

FUN FACT: People on the Keto diet who have moved their type 2 diabetes to a healthy range, were able to get a healthy fasting insulin level by also incorporating time-restricted eating

  • Sleep

Shoot for 6-8 hours of sleep per night at a minimum.  Not sleeping enough causes carb and bad food cravings on top of a host of other problems.  Prioritize sleep.

  • Tons of Water

Hydrate!  Drinking lots of water and getting your electrolytes has been shown to help you shed the weight with no other diet changes.  Drinking more water helps flush out toxins in the body.

  • Fat First, Carbs Last

Eating healthy fats such as Coconut Oil, Avacado Oil, MCT Oil, and real Olive Oil*Getting real Olive Oil in the USA is near impossible since it's legally cut with inflammatory cheaper oils without having to be listed on the label. Look for NAOOA certified olive oils, to be sure you got the real thing. first is a huge way to cut cravings.  Eat your healthy fat first to get that full feeling so you eat less of (or don’t even want) the crappy stuff.  No avocado toasts, just have the avocado with some healthy toppings.  Eat any carbs at the end of the meal, or better yet, for the end of your last meal.  Contrary to popular belief, eating carbs early in the day is not beneficial to weight loss or health.  Unfortunately, you should still avoid processed carbohydrates.

Choose fiber – dense plant-based carbohydrates

Non – Starchy Carbohydrates: arugula, romaine, butter lettuce, chicory, radicchio, spinach, mixed greens, chard, kale, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, mustard greens, Bok choy, asparagus, collards, celery, carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms (especially shiitake and maitake), artichoke, snap peas, fennel, radish, or any non-starchy veggie you like.

Starchy Carbohydrates: sweet potatoes, yams, butternut squash, delicate squash, acorn squash, kabocha squash, pumpkin, beets, parsnips, burdock root, yucca, plantain, cassava, celeriac root or sunchoke. Also included in this category would be beans and lentils if tolerated, preferably soaked and sprouted. Always be sure to look up how long the type of bean you choose needs to be soaked and pressure cooked before enough lectins are removed to make it safer to consume.  Just because they sell barely cooked beans in restaurants does not make them safe.

Non – Inflammatory whole grains (if tolerated): quinoa, teff, buckwheat, oats, millet, or amaranth. (please use sparingly and not part of your weekly diet)

  • Kick Sugar and Sweeteners

We all love a little sweetness in our lives, but the dangers of sugar seep into every part of our bodies, causing widespread inflammation and eventually disease.

  • Don’t Drink Fruit Juices or Smoothies

Juicing is a complete no-no since it lacks any fiber. An all veggie smoothie is fine once and a while.  The moment you add fruits, it’s an expensive coke.  If you absolutely need the fruit to drink a smoothie, don’t.  Cook and eat your veggies instead.  Make a healthy veggie stirfry and munch while getting your fiber with a health fat like ghee or coconut oil.

  • Don’t Eat Junk Food With Distractions

No snacks by the tv or popcorn at the movies.  Eat before you settle in to watch something.  Make eating just about eating.  Switch your habit to something healthy.  If you must eat while watching something make it things you don’t want to eat.  Watching something will make you eat more and mindlessly.  So it’s probably a great time to eat those veggies.  Dip them in a healthy fat like avocado mayo (double check there isn’t bad oils added like soy or corn oils), grass-fed melted butter with herbs, or go fancy with Béarnaise sauce.
