Make the most of 2016’s final weeks with a sensible, high-protein diet and a smart exercise plan
2016 has been quite a year—and if you aren’t yet comfortable with where your fitness and weight loss goals are at this point in the year, you’re certainly not alone. But don’t sweat it, because there’s still an entire month to go!
While a single month might seem too short a time to make a serious difference, many people are surprised as to just how much weight loss progress you can make in a month’s time (especially if you’ve fallen off the wagon a bit in the last few weeks). All you need is a smart plan (like Ideal Protein) and a little bit of discipline to start the New Year off right!
Cut out carbs to reduce insulin levels and allow your body to access its fat stores
Many issues with gaining and retaining body fat are related to eating an overabundance of simple carbs like cereals, breads, pastas, muffins, and other highly processed, carbohydrate-rich foods. These foods can cause insulin dysfunction; and too much insulin often leads to hypoglycemia, which in turn can lead to sugar cravings and weight gain.
While insulin is designed to regulate blood sugar levels, too much can end up “locking” fat in your body’s cells—referred to above as “fat stores”. However, a healthy diet can help bring down insulin to an appropriate level and reverse your body’s cycle of fat gain.
Add protein to support healthy muscle tone, strong bones, and the feeling of fullness
By cutting carbs and adding protein to your diet, you can allow your body to live off its own fat reserves instead of simply relying on carbohydrates for energy. However, without a proper source of protein, you could lose valuable muscle in the process.
Adding a high quality protein source like the many, delicious offerings of Ideal Protein helps ensure that the weight you lose is mostly fat, not muscle, which helps increase your metabolism and keeps you strong.
