5 Tips On How To Lose Weight Despite of a Busy Schedule

Being healthy is mostly the main priority of everybody nowadays. Being healthy means you can do a lot of things, by having a healthy mind and body you can avoid certain illnesses or diseases.

The question is how can we attain a healthy life when we are loaded with a lot of responsibilities both at home and workplace? How can we better take care of ourselves when we’re stuck with a hefty load of work schedules, appointments, business meetings and gigs throughout the days and nights? Our schedule is very hectic to the point where we can’t take a rest at all.

5 TIPS ON LOSING WEIGHT DESPITE OF BUSY SCHEDULETruth be told, a lot of fast metabolism dieters are hesitant to start the diet because they feel like they’re going through the same routine again. Stick with the diet for the first few days, then go totally off track later on, until such time that they will discontinue, because no. 1 reason – hectic schedules are eating their time up in dieting.

How do we overcome this challenge in losing weight?

oneAlmost all of us are undergoing that same situation you’re in. It’s not healthy for us to feel stressed out all the time. We need to get rid of stress and instead, enjoy every moment we make as we go on the fast metabolism diet journey. For our challenged dieters who have a very tough schedule, you can apply these tips on how to stay on track on the fast metabolism diet.

1. Have a schedule planner with you

Like our office or business appointments, we need to treat our diet like one too. Before you start your day, enlist everything you’re bound to accomplish for the entire day. From the moment you wake up until you sleep, list every appointments you have. Office tasks, business meetings, appointments, projects, deadlines, night-out gigs, everything.

After you list them all, take extra special note of the “vacant time” you had in your schedule. And before you argue, no. It’s not excusable to say “But I don’t have vacant time at all!” Truth is, you  always have a vacant time, you just refused to acknowledge it. Why do I say so? What about your early morning schedule? Shall we say from 5am to 7am? Or your 30-1 hour office breaks in between? Or maybe from 5pm onwards you’re already vacant, or the late 10pm onwards time? We all have a vacant time, after all, we all need to take a break.

So, going back to the tip, fill in your “fast metabolism diet appointments” with your vacant time. And like we said, you need to attend to them diligently, like how diligent you are in attending your business appointments. You can do grocery shopping, monitor weight or plan your next meal in these vacant times. Always keep in mind that if you intentionally missed your fast metabolism diet appointments, you would lose its opportunity. The opportunity to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

2. Organize your exercise schedule.

In relation to the first tip, let’s take a closer look at your schedule. If you are loaded from 8am to 10pm, you can have your exercise time earlier. If you’re an early riser, you can have your exercise earlier than 8am, maybe on 5 or 6am, then have a breakfast within 30 minutes of waking, and lastly, have at least 30-45 minutes of phase-specific exercise. In the remaining time before you go to office, you can do your morning ritual and prepare yourself in going to office.

If you have a vacant time after working hours, you have the option to do your exercise afterwards right after you go home. If you are busy from the crack of dawn until very late at night, you can divide your exercise in your 30 minute break interval. Example you can have a brisk walk exercise for 15 minutes while going to your office, have a brisk walk on stairs for another 15 minutes while you hop into different floors in your office, and finally, have another round of brisk walk when you get home.

3. Plan and Pack your Foods

One of the most challenging task for our dieters with very hectic schedules is preparing foods. They simply don’t have time to prepare some foods in the morning, hence, they are more prone into binge eating. It is advisable to prepare and cook your food at night, put it over the freezer, then you’ll just reheat your foods the next morning. If possible, make sure that you prepare foods enough for you  to sustain for the day. It will be better if you can also have your lunch and snacks prepared, not just your breakfast. In this way, you are ensured that you are eating healthy and phase-specific foods in the diet, and reduces the temptation of binge-eating.

4. Eat healthy foods at work

Are you exhausted in working for few hours? Tempted to go with your colleagues and order some mouthwatering burger, spaghetti, sandwich and soda? Before you do it, think about the previous tip once again! Right! You packed that healthy snack with you! So grab it and eat it during your break, or when you’re feeling hungry! You can pack some oatmeal and other phase-specific fruits in Phase 1, fill them with hot water to make an instant oatmeal! Or you can have your vegetable salad in phase 2, or some healthy and yummy fats in Phase 3! What matters most is that you stick to your diet and only eat the healthy foods while you’re in the office.

6. Enjoy your office events and night outs.

Are you having a part event in the office? Or some night-out party drinking after work? Fret not! Enjoy these events and don’t stress yourself up! You can apply these various tips to get you prepared and for you to enjoy these events:

Catholic Lenten Fasting in Fast Metabolism Diet

Now that the Lenten season has unfolded, a no.of questions from dieters has also been raised with regards to what options they have, to make the fast metabolism diet a continuous course.

catholic lenten

We are aware that fasting is harsh in our metabolism. Be reminded that when our body is switched into starvation or survival mode, it starts depositing fats, for our body to survive. Which in turn defeats the whole purpose of doing the fast metabolism diet. How do we meet and follow our religious fasting obligation but not ruining your fast metabolism diet? Here are the tips you can apply this Lenten season:

  1. Eat a Phase 3 dinner meal the night before you fast

The night before you start fasting, let’s say on Tuesday night, go for a full Phase 3 dinner meal (Lean Protein, healthy fat, fruits, vegetables). No matter what phase you’re in right now, you can disregard your phase-specific meal for the night and go for Phase 3 meal. But instead of eating a grain, try to eat sweet potato or legumes, also try to eat  phase 1 fruits.These foods will help stabilize your blood sugar and calm the adrenaline in your body.

  1. Drink lots of water during your fasting

Continue drinking the usual amount of water during the fasting days. As much as possible, stick to the plain string water as it has the best electrolytes among other types of water.  Drinking water can keep you hydrated and let your liver run smoothly.

  1. Have a protein-based snack in the morning during fasting

The Christian fasting may allow us to have one full meal and two snacks throughout the day for Holy Wednesday and Good Friday. In these days, eat a protein-based snack in the morning (e.g. hard-boiled eggs, smoked salmon) and don’t forget to include vegetables in it. After your morning snack, you can have a your main meal on the afternoon (protein, vegetables, grain and healthy fat). For the late afternoon/early night snack you can eat raw nuts with veggies.

  1. Eat Phase 1 breakfast meal after fasting

After how many hours of food deprivation and fasting, it is no doubt that your stomach will be sensitive. We need to treat it gently and not overdo your first meal. Eat Phase 1 breakfast meal like oatmeal, quinoa porridge or even soft brown rice. You can add cinnamon or nutmeg and stevia for flavors. You can eat strawberries or blackberries for fruits. These phase 1 foods will help calm your adrenalines and your sensitive stomach. Afterwards you can resume on eating your phased-specific meals in the afternoon and go back to your normal track once again.

Hope this helps everyone who would choose to go fasting this Holy Week. May we have a meaningful one.

Hope with Green: Green Easy Soup Detoxifying Recipe for Phase 3

Hope with Green: Green Easy Soup Recipe for Detoxing

The past holidays caused you to eat a lot, to drink a lot and to sleep a lot (because of hangover). Everyone must have been through this. Once in a year celebrations are just unstoppable, aren’t they? But be reminded that you still have to be taking care of your health. I’m sure, you don’t want to spoil one or so days of the first week of New Year with being sick. Your health might get wasted during the holidays but you can always start a New Year with a new healthy lifestyle. Take this simple soup recipe that I am to introduce to you. A healthy vegetable soup recipe. Take note, a veggie soup recipe.

This recipe will yield 4 servings. Phase 3.

Ingredients for this Detox Soup:1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons diced onion
1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 cups fresh broccoli, cut up
1/2 pound of fresh spinach leaves
3 parsnips, peeled, cored, chopped
2 ribs of celery, trimmed, chopped
A handful of fresh parsley, roughly chopped
Fresh water, as needed
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
Lemon or lime juice

Steps in making this Detox Soup:

  1. In a large soup pot, pour the olive oil in it, heat it over medium fire and sauté garlic, onion and ginger. Put the broccoli, spinach,parsnips, parsley and celery in, and stir a bit until the spinach is distorted. Add water just enough amount to drown the vegetables. The spinach will be cooked quite a bit so avoid adding more water. Maybe later, if you want the texture thinner.Heat to a high simmer, cover the pot, and reduce heat to a medium simmer. Cook it for fifteen minutes or so until the veggies are softened. Seems like one of those quick and easy soup recipes you’re familiar with.
  2. Blend the soup in an immersion blender to smooth it.
  3. Make a taste test and if it needs brightening, squeeze a citrus to it.
  4. Not really a grain-lover but eats, serve your soup with a spoonful of newly cooked rice in the center of your bowl- perfection!

Dealing with Alcoholic Drinks in The Fast Metabolism Diet

How to deal with Alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet when holidays and parties are coming in?

alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet

After the Thanksgiving Day, we are about to deal with the Christmas and New Year season, not to mention dealing with several office, and Christmas reunion parties while we are on the fast metabolism diet. It is no doubt that we can’t help but feel anxious when  the temptation is at its highest point. Not only foods are its highest level of temptation, but drinks too. These holiday seasons may not be complete without having a drink or two with our fellow friends and relatives. How do we deal with avoiding these alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet?

We all know that alcohol is like coffee, it is one of the great metabolism killers. Not only it slows down or worst, kill our metabolism, but also it destroys our liver. The Fast metabolism diet’s goal is for our 5 great organ players to digest foods and heal our metabolism. We certainly can’t have them wasting time on digesting these metabolism killers. If possible, avoiding drinking alcoholic wine may seem to be the safest and the best option. But for those who certainly can’t give up drinking yet, here are the tips on how to deal with alcoholic drinks while on the fast metabolism diet.

Drink at least 8 ounces of water.

For every glass of wine or mixed drink you drink, you need to balance it by drinking at least 8 ounces of water to process the alcohol in your liver quickly. It will also help to cleanse your body and minimize its intoxicating effects. You can also add lime juice (juice of a whole lime) to your water. It has more vitamin A than lemon and this Vitamin can help your liver process the alcohol quickly.

Choose organic, sulfite-free red wine

This wine is your best option to drink during these holiday season because it has the least intoxicating effect on your liquor.

Choose Rum, Vodka and other top shelf liquor.

These drinks are generally cleaner than other liquors since they have the least content of added chemicals and fake ingredients.

Choose good quality of mixers.

Be aware that some mixers are full of fake ingredients like tonic water (that contains sugar) and fake flavorings. Make sure that the juices used in the mixers are fresh. Avoid mixing up sodas and energy drinks.

Never drink beer.

Drinking beer is never an option in the fast metabolism diet. It has more carbohydrates that is difficult to digest, thus shutting down your metabolism.

Eat your phased-specific meals before planning on drinking.

Follow the routine of eating every 2-3 hours per day. It is recommended to eat protein-filled meal and snacks before planning on drinking. You can eat meatballs, raw nuts. Protein-filled snacks and meals can help control the delivery of sugar to your bloodstream.

Detoxify your liver.

After drinking from the holiday season, it is important to detoxify your liver from the toxic it digested from the last night. Drink extra water to cleanse your body. You can also cook a cleansing soup (Liver-detox broth) that is great for your liver and adrenals. Drink 1-3 cups thrice (breakfast, lunch and dinner) during the next day.

Fast Metabolism Diet Holiday Tips: Smooth the Way on Holidays without Worries

Holiday Eating is a serious topic to dieting persons. Take Haylie Pomroy’s fast metabolism diet holiday tips on how to smooth the way this holiday without worries . Remember, don’t get stressed with mere words, eat them out!

Fast Metabolism Diet Holiday Tips

Holidays! Food! Holidays = Food. Holidays is to food and vice versa. Holidays are the perfect time to get rid of the stress we had for the past few days, by eating. We might be on a diet but we do not want to restrict ourselves from eating for this special holiday events.  Good thing that we have Haylie Pomroy to give us the fast metabolism diet holiday tips to survive this holiday Season! Read more to know about how you can handle the Christmas and holiday season with ease and without worrying your diet!

  1. Don’t shut your metabolism. Keep it going.

Sometimes, when we think of holidays, they’re all about food. Let’s say tomorrow is Christmas day, and we decide to drown ourselves with hunger tonight to have an empty stomach for the coming big celebration, which is a bad idea. How did it became a bad idea? Well, since you’re hungry, you’re going to eat a lot more than how much your stomach can only intake. You’re torturing your tummy. You should eat five times per day, that includes three healthy meals and two protein-based snacks every day, and keep it going to the holidays. You’re going to be needing this to keep your blood sugar normal and metabolism stable. Just so the holiday foods can be as prepared as you to be thrown in to your stomach without worrying about your metabolism.

2.Be prepared and do not be alarmed that there’s going to be a holiday!

Keep your stress hormones calmed when going to a holiday celebration, but how? By filling your tummy beforehand the right way. It’s just the way it is. And there’s also a fact. You’re going to avoid craving for food if you’re feeding your body the foods it need to keep your metabolism burning!

  1. Ask yourself: To drink or not to drink just one?

Actually, you can just have clear liquors namely rum, vodka and gin since they are cleaner. They contain less chemicals and fake ingredients. BUT, still know that alcohol is VERY dehydrating. Better to drink eight ounces of spring water for every intake of drink. If you couldn’t help yourself drinking wine or liquor, just stick to the organic, sulfire-free wine.

  1. No to beer. I insist.

Considered also as liquid bread, but be reminded that you don’t want to shut your metabolism. It is because beer is about carbohydrates- it has more carbohydrates than wine or liquor. Remain loyal to your banner- “Less carb diet” or strongly “No carb diet”.

  1. Have more of protein-heavy foods.

Eat 10 to 15 grams of protein every two hours. Don’t think that this is exhausting, think that this is for your own body to be prepared from the thought that you’ll be eating a lot. Protein rich foods can be turkey jerky, deviled eggs, hummus and veggies, cold cuts, or shrimp cocktail. Aim this! You’ll be glad that by doing this, your metabolism will be told that it’s time to get into the high gear. Retain to your mind that your body can handle anything as long as your metabolism is ready for it.

  1. Choose homemade sweets more. They are made with love.

Let us count the differences of your goodies bought from stores from my sweets made at home. First, your store-bought goodies are processed and contain many artificial ingredients, while my homemade sweets are healthier and they metabolize faster- and they’re made with love. Right? Second, I think the first one is already enough.

  1. Like Live, Laugh, Love, Mine is Eat, Drink, Be Merry.

When eating, one must accompany it with enjoyment. Know that this releases feel-good endorphins, which in turn signals your thyroid to release fat-burning hormones and also causes the decrease of another hormone- leptin. This turn of healthy hormone chain of events will excite your body to release stored fat for fuel helping you to feel full and keep you to overeat.

Christmas holiday season is meant for us to celebrate and enjoy these occasions. We can’t have ourselves constantly worrying and dreading these events just because it might sabotage our diet. Follow these fast metabolism diet holiday tips and enjoy the holiday season! Merry Christmas to everyone!
