10 of the best tips to get into shape, even sooner than 3 weeks!

  1. Intermittently fast. This is not only a lifestyle diet to help you shed body fat, but it’s also a great method to increase your longevity, quality of life and energy, whilst reducing inflammation and toxicity. You will lose body weight fast, and even more effectively when coupled with exercise
  2. Weight train. It’s so important to lift weights, both heavy and moderate, in order to increase muscle mass, tone, conditioning, as well as for weight loss. Nothing is more effective than building your bodies strength and bone density, for quality of life beyond your current age bracket. Embrace the ability to build muscle, as you are also increasing your metabolisms efficiency.
  3. Eat properly. This means whole foods, nourishing sources of protein and the right form of carbohydrates. There is no point at all depriving yourself of natural and healthy foods. Structure your meals to contain the highest amounts of raw vegetables, followed by protein, according to your bodies weight. The smallest part of your plate is saved for carbs, that will be dependent on your level of training. Fill your belly with fresh vegetables and moderate amounts of protein. These are the key components to a healthy body, and shapely physique.
  4. Say no to added sugar. Sugar is added in almost all items located within supermarket isles. Stay away from packed sauces, mixes and even your protein bars! Check every label, and make sure the sugar content is zero or extremely low. Manufacturers hide sugar in forms of ‘so called healthy’ alternatives like maple syrup, coconut sugar and the like. Now, although these are a lot better when comparing them to white sugar, it’s still a sweetened alternative. You do not need to consume these. In moderation yes, but daily no.
  5. Eat more fiber. Soluble fibre absorbs water and slows down the passing of food through the digestive tract. This can delay stomach emptying, making it expand and feel a lot more full than it is. This means, you may consume a lot less calories, because you can’t really eat when you are full! This is great news if you are trying to aid yourself of those hunger pangs.
    The great news is that soluble fiber decreases the accumulation of fat around the organs, reducing the size of your waistline.
    The best sources of fibre include avocado, brussels sprouts, blackberries, flaxseeds and oats. Try and eat as much of these as you can on a daily basis.
  6. HIIT interval training. To get into great shape, and lose those stubborn pockets of body fat, try HIIT. The trick is to go all out when you hit the high intensity period, then rest for a short amount of time, before starting this again all over. It will leave you breathless, but give you the most amazing results. This form of high intensity cardio should only be implemented for 20 minutes, and at best 2–3 times per week. Save your strength and drive for weight training instead.
  7. Add the magic of apple cider. Acetic acid is one of the main components of apple cider, which has been known to reduce fat accumulation. Always pick the mother apple acids, which is always cloudy on the bottom of the glass. Add a shot of apple cider in the morning, upon waking, then during the day and in salads. It’s sour, tasty and absolutely delicious.
  8. Do lots of incidental exercise, like walking. You don’t need to exercise like a maniac every day to get in shape. Walking has some great benefits. Brisk walks even help you to reduce your overall body fat, especially around the belly area. All you need to do is walk for 30–40 minutes extra per day. Aim to do an hour or so when you are free. Building up to longer sessions is always advisable.
  9. Drink lots of water. I aim to drink 3–4 litres per day. One before working out, one during my workout, and the rest during the later part of the day. This does not include beverages. I usually have a couple of coffees, and many glasses of herbal tea. Keep yourself hydrated, not only for functioning optimally, but for also nourishing your body and being able to train effectively in the gym. Sugar filled drinks are out of the picture. Just focus on easy access to fresh, cold water and some warm herbal beverages.
  10. Chew your food properly. This is a big one for many people. I know you are starving, but your body needs you to chew properly, so the food can be properly digested and travel along your insides, to nourish you correctly. Fast and furious eating promotes gas, bloating, irritability, and other awful symptoms. Sit down, and slowly chew your food, enjoying the taste, sound and texture. No eating on the run here. Stop, smell the roses, and enjoy. 🙂
