How To Achieve Your Ideal Body Composition & Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

I found some incredible free range organic eggs from Galicia! When choosing eggs, always opt for those from heirloom hens rather than cloned battery hens.

Now that Thanksgiving day has passed, expect to see numerous advertisements for gym discounts, newfangled fitness contraptions, diet pills, lapband surgery, frozen “diet” foods, and other products targeting the 80% of Americans who have at least 10 extra pounds of fat to lose from their bellies, butts, hips, thighs, and upper arms.

We are told that if we just eat fewer calories and burn more by exercising, we should lose weight. Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight knows that eating less and exercising more doesn’t work, unless your goal is to constantly feel tired and hungry.

Researchers are asking the wrong questions about why most people’s attempts to lose weight (and keep it off) often fail. Perhaps we should be asking, “Why are people eating more calories than they are burning off? And why doesn’t their appetite decrease when excess fat begins to accumulate on the body?” The simple answer to this question is that when you eat food that is devoid of the nutrition that your body needs (AKA “empty calories” like pie, cookies, and sweetened beverages), you will continue to feel hungry until the appropriate nutrients are obtained. Additionally, excitotoxins in food (including aspartame, MSG, sucralose, and refined salt) can increase your appetite and cause you to feel hungry when you’ve already eaten enough calories. To lose weight, you need to consume foods that are high in nutrition, low in caloric density, and free of toxic ingredients.

If you found yourself a little too overstuffed at Thanksgiving, or if you’re interested in preventing unsightly Holiday Weight Gain, I suggest integrating a high nutrition, low calorie whey protein powder such as PaleoMeal into your day. It contains whole foods based vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins and CLA for accelerated fat-burning. And with 5 different delicious flavors of PaleoMeal, you won’t get bored with the same old flavor every day. Unlike, most protein powders, PaleoMeal does NOT taste like chalk and it isn’t lumpy or difficult to blend. From now until Monday morning, you can get it on sale for 25% off by usine the coupon code paleomeal during checkout.

Also, don’t forget our other natural herbal supplements that aid weight loss by promoting a healthy metabolic rate and decreasing a voracious appetite. None of our weight loss herbs contain stimulants, laxatives, or other items that may cause unpleasant side effects. To learn more about them, click here.
