Simple weight loss tips

Do you want to naturally drop a size without any dieting?


The answer is: Apple cider vinegar, Psyllium husk and Coconut oil

I weigh 57 kg which is equivalent to 8 stone 13 pounds. For 5.7  height I'm considered to have a healthy weight. My weight hasn't fluctuated at all in the past 15 years. I eat 2 good meals a day and almost never go to the gym. The main reason for that is that I am devoted follower two weight loss  principles - alkaline/acid food balance regime  and  detoxification by taking a daily dietary fiber remedy.

Apple cider facts:
- Helps metabolise fat naturally
- Helps get rid of excess fluid
- Gives skin a healthier, smoother look
- Invigorates and detoxifies

Apple cider vinegar is one of the fastest working natural alkalising aids there are.
I usually start my day with a tbsp of vinegar diluted in a glass of water. It's the perfect way to jump start your metabolism. Alkalising your body has many positive health benefits - detoxification and nutrient absorption are some of the them.

You can buy Raw organic apple cider vinegar from most stores in the UK.
Click here to buy from Sainsbury's and here if you prefer the Wholefoods version
Pectin contained in this vinegar is believed to perfectly combine with cholesterol and helps flush it out of our system. Even when eating patterns aren't altered, taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before lunch and dinner has proven to help some individuals lose on average ½ pound a week. This very simple and easy change to one's diet allows even the most faint heartened and weak willed to lose weight without interrupting one's life.
Though many people would be quick to dismiss apple cider vinegar as just another fad diet, a report in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that not only does vinegar help to control blood sugar and insulin levels following a carbohydrate-rich meal, but it helps to create a feeling of fullness. It's indeed a very healthy weight loss remedy!

Psyllium Husk dietary fibre facts:
- Each tbsp of psyllium contains 9g of fiber which increases sensation of fullness
- Powerfull natural laxative or cleansing agent (best relief for constipation)
- Absorbs heavy metals and other toxic substances found in the colon
- Reduces cravings

I really like Solgar's psyllium. To buy online click here. You can also find this product at most health stores.

Detoxification of the Colon:
The bulking effect of psyllium also works to rid the colon of toxic substances, including heavy metals, as it acts almost as a sponge to soak them off the walls of the intestine. This spongy action has a dual advantage as it can decrease hunger when taken with meals.

* 2 tbsp of Psyllium should always be taken with (at least) a full 8 oz glass of water. It is also important to drink at least 6 to 8 full glasses of water throughout the day or constipation may develop. Taking psyllium supplements without adequate liquids may cause it to swell, and, in extreme causes, cause choking.

Coconut oil
Coconut oil's saturated fat is of the medium-chain fatty acid variety, which are digested more easily and utilised differently by the body than other saturated fats (such as butter, meat and eggs). Whereas other saturated fats are stored in the body's cells, the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil are sent directly to the liver where they are immediately converted into energy. Coconut oil will actually speed up metabolism so your body will burn more calories in a day which will contribute to weight loss. Coconut oil supports healthy metabolic function and is a revered anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal agent. Pacific islanders deem coconut oil to be the cure-all gift from nature for all illness.

Good luck
