Health & Fitness Expert Stephanie Mansour is here with 5 ways to detox after a weekend full of festivities. Check out the video for great detox tips Steph shared on The Jam and keep reading to learn more!
1. Sip on a Mocktail
Start your day off right by drinking something green! Not into juicing on your own? Don’t want to eat vegetables first thing in the morning? Buy premade green juices and pair a juice with a hard boiled egg for a healthy breakfast! Look for green juices with lower amounts of sugar made with real vegetables. Many of my private weight loss clients will drink their greens if they’re on the go. It’s an easy way to start the day on a positive and healthy note!
Herbs and spices are great metabolism boosters. Time to ignite some fire into your body so that you can burn fat easily! Add in some red pepper flakes or turmeric to your sauces or cooked vegetables for lunch or dinner. Also, ginger has great anti-inflammatory properties that will help to reduce inflammation in your body. Time to get rid of the bloat by using some fresh ginger in your salad dressings or smoothies!
3. Lean Protein
Another key for weight loss is to eat lean protein. What is lean protein? How does eating protein help with weight loss? Lean protein is a nice grilled piece of chicken, or some ground up low fat turkey meat, or protein powder, or eggs. The list goes on and on! Eating protein helps with weight loss because it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and keeps you feeling full. As a private weight loss coach for women, I recommend that all of my clients eat protein every few hours to keep them energized and to ward off cravings.
4. Sweat It Out
As a private weight loss coach for women, I focus on high intensity interval training workouts when my clients need to sweat. However, if you’re looking for simple ways to detox, sweat it out! Don’t focus so much on strength training. Instead, focus on cardio bursts that will get your heart rate up and cause you to sweat. If you’re feeling really lazy, get into a sauna or steam room to help you sweat. Sweating helps cleanse the body of toxins, which is essential for a detox.
5. Snooze Peacefully
Many of my private weight loss clients are busy and successful – but sometimes running on little or no sleep! Sleep is important for weight loss because it’s the body’s time to repair itself. Sometimes if my private weight loss clients aren’t getting enough sleep, I will recommend that they skip their workout and sleep longer in the morning, or take a nap during the day.
As you can see, there are many ways to detox. If you can implement all of these tips this week, you will be well on your way to losing weight and feeling lighter! As a private weight loss coach and a private fitness coach for women, I specialize in helping successful women lose weight.
