Do you know just how hugely effective high intensity interval training (HIIT) can be for your weight loss.
A 16 week study comparing the effects of HIIT and moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT) in postmenopausal diabetic women found that even without concomitant caloric restriction, HIIT was more effective in reducing central bofy fat than MICT. HIIT is a valuable addition to any weight loss program, and may just be the key to shifting that stubborn abdominal fat.
Toxicity may stop you reaching your weight loss goals.
Recent research shows that significant increases in levels of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) released from fat tissue during weight loss could offset the beneficial effects; in turn during intensive weight loss, the released POPs may impair energy metabolism and stimulate subsequent weight regain. This research highlights the role that regular detoxification plays in successful weight loss programs, to promote wellbeing and also to overcome the plateaus in weight loss often seen.
Phytochemical-rich foods have fat-burning potential.
Cocoa, cinnamon, turmeric, resveratrol, green tea, genistein (from soy) and myricetin (from walnuts and onions) all activate 5’adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase; better known as AMPK. This signalling molecule stimulates a cascade of adaptive responses including glucose and fat burning. Adding phytochemical rich foods to your weight loss plans not only adds spice to life but also supports your success.
