Great stories to come. I'll show you how to shine up your health halo! Here's some tips and pics from recent stories xx
Meet Priscilla and Scott. They love soft drinks, sugar in their coffees, sugary fruit juice and energy drinks to keep them energised at work and looking after twins.
I set out to help them lose weight, not by changing what they do (exercise) or eat (food) but by making a simple swap with what they drink - subing out sugar for water.
Scott was having over seven teaspoons of sugar a day in his coffee equating to 2.7kg of sugar in just one month! You can see the tower of white sugar pictured above.
If you add a can of soft drink a day, plus the sugar in his coffee, that equates to over 336 jellybeans worth of sugar in just seven days.
Scott and Priscilla lost over 7kg in three weeks with one simple swap, and you can too!
THE HYDRATION CHALLENGE:
W A T E R W E E K - try one week, or 3 weeks!
To lose kilos, gain energy, feel awesome! Training and diet help you to stay fit and healthy, but if you still feel blah then maybe you need to give more love to the third vital element - making sure your body is well hydrated.
- DRINK ONLY WATER for seven days with the "conscious uncoupling" from milky sugary coffees, alcohol, soft drinks, fruit juices, smoothies, milkshakes, sports drinks, protein shakes and energy drinks.
- Don’t freak– coffee isn’t banned. Only the milky creamy sugary coffs but black coffee is coolies.
- Herbal tea is sanctioned too and you can add lemon and lime, mint ect. to jazz up your water bottle.
- When it comes to the food part - eat healthy. The exercise thing? Stay active.
WHY DO THIS?
The idea is not to drink your calories but to eat them (cos we all know eating speeds up the good ‘ol metabolism through the processes of digestion as drinking our calories does not). 70% of the body is water, and water acts as a natural appetite suppressant. It also helps to regulate your metabolism. Your metabolism increases by 30 percent after drinking 2 cups of water (Wowa!). When you become dehydrated, your metabolism slows down, affecting how your body burns fat.
