Drink this to keep you in fat burning mode

We’ve been told for years that eating fat will make us fat…but that is not true. Today there are more low fat/no fat products than ever before and our population is getting more obese by the mouthful.

I bet that you might even be afraid to eat more fat during your day…I know I was. To start my morning with oil added to my morning routine does not sound inviting or productive, but let me tell you, in days I could see the fat melting from my waist and thighs. (Also, my energy went up and my cravings went down). I have also consciously starting adding more healthy fats to each meal and snack.

How did I start this new adventure?

For years I have been consuming MCT oil or coconut oil during the day but never in the morning (such as added to my smoothies, cooking with it or a tablespoon before a meal—because I know the brain is 60% fat and good fats are required for healthy living). After reading the Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey, I started to add his brand of Brain Octane to my morning tea (plus his collagen)…this translated into a softening of my afternoon slump and my sugar cravings decreased.

Then I stumbled upon healthfulpursuit.com and loved what holistic nutritionist Leanne Vogel was saying and bought her e-book, The Keto Beginning: Complete Guide +30-day Meal Plan…which has 17 chapters, 147 pages + over 70 high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein, dairy-, gluten-, sugar-, grain-, legume-free recipes. It’s the rocket fuel for achieving flawless health and effortless weight loss through sound nutrition practices and vibrant food preparation in ways you’ve never seen before.

It has further expanded my knowledge about nutrition and it is definitely worth the read. You can pick up a copy here…..

Which brings me to today…I wanted to share everything I have learned & tried, so I put together the Gain Energy Lose Fat sessions (which were a hit)…here is some helpful tips for you and if you would like a plan of how you can lose fat, email me, tanya@moveyourbody.ca and we can set up a time to chat.

Regular milk has a lot of potential negative effects on your body- including leeching calcium from your bones (yes- this is true!), causing inflammation in your body, and causing digestive problems because 75% of the world’s population is genetically unable to digest milk! Continue reading »

Almond Turmeric Latte…..Amazingly delicious and nutritious

This SUPER spice will kick your fat burning filter into high gear.

Turmeric acts an all-natural anti-inflammatory agent and can assist your liver’s enzymes in flushing out carcinogens from your body which is key for optimal health and efficient fat loss. The liver acts as a natural detoxifier – it is your body’s fat burning filter.

It is the liver’s responsibility to eliminate all the toxins from your body. If your liver is functioning poorly, besides draining your energy, it makes it more difficult to release any unwanted body fat.
