6 Things You Can Do To Wake Up Early

We have heard this famous line often -“The Early Bird Catches the Worm“. Ever since our tender years, this line has been imprinted in our minds. Waking up early is the way to start the day right. They say the earlier you wake up, the more productive you can be as you get through the day.

But for some of our fast metabolism dieters, waking up early can be a challenge. How do we step up from this difficulty? How can we encourage ourselves to rise up earlier when we are so tempted to extend our shut eye?

motivation in waking up early

We recommend these 6 tips to help give extra boost to waking up early. Try applying them in your routine and see which one works for you best.

1. Place Your Phone or Alarm Clock Away From Your Bed

Do you ever wonder why even though you’ve set three alarms already, you still find yourself sleeping more? The culprit behind it is the location of our alarm clock. Most of us place our alarm clocks (or smartphones nowadays) on our bed. Making it incredibly easy for us to grab it and hit “snooze”.

And since we’re still lying in the four corners of our comfortable bed, it is easy to doze off again. These recurring actions resulted to us getting late at work and ruining our schedule for the rest of the day. How do we fix this detrimental habit?

The solution to that is by simply putting your alarm clock away from your bed! You can put your alarm clock on your study table, cabinet, or near the door. The farther it is, the better. The goal  is to force you to exert more effort in standing up and getting away from your bed. This movement will help the transition from being asleep to being awake immediately.

2. Have Something to Look Forward To

Before you go to sleep the night before, list down all your goals for the next day. Whether you want to go out for a run, read a new novel, or cook a healthy meal for the family, whatever that is, list it down.

These goals will inspire you to wake up early and keep moving! Because, if you don’t have any goals set for the day, sleeping (or doing nothing) will always be a better option for you.

3. Set a Bedtime Alarm

Did you know that you can also use your alarm clock as a bedtime alarm? Yes, you read it right! This is really helpful especially if you have trouble sleeping. Set the time when you need to sleep. The moment it alarms, it will remind you to sleep now and halt every activity you’re doing at the moment.

4. Establish a Relaxing Nighttime Routine

We recommend to only do light things before your bedtime. It is important to relax your brain and lull it to sleep. You can listen to a mellow music or meditate. Not soon after you’ll find yourself sleepy. Conditioning yourself to sleep before your bedtime will help you establish a consistent sleeping pattern.

5. Have an Accountability Buddy

Tell your best friend or your family about your plans of waking up early and let them join your quest. You can invite them to take a morning run with you. The words you left to them will hold you accountable for it. Surely, you wouldn’t want to break your promises to them, right?

6. Cut Your Screen time Before Going to Bed

The blue light emitted from electronic devices prevents your brain from releasing melatonin, a hormone responsible for making you sleep. It is highly suggested to cut off your browsing time 30 minutes before bedtime to relax your brain after a tiresome day. When you’re relaxed, your brain will be able to release the hormones you needed to have profound and relaxing sleep.

Try these tips tonight, and if they work for you, then make these things a habit. Waking up early will do wonders in your waking life.

5 Ways To Make Food Healthier While On FMD Diet

One of the most rewarding and fulfilling lessons we learned while undergoing the fast metabolism diet is food awareness, that is to say, which ones are beneficial and which lot could sabotage our metabolism. However, do you know that you can make your every meal healthier than it already is?

5 Ways to Make Your Food More Healthier While On FMD Diet

Here are our top 5 tips on how to make heartier and healthier meals while you’re on fast metabolism diet.

1. Know When To Choose Organic Food

Although we recommend to our dieters to patronize organic food whenever possible, we understand that it is a bit expensive. For our dieters who cannot afford to go all-organic yet, we recommend you start first with fruits and veggies, and animal protein.

organic is worth it

These two types of food group are most vulnerable to pesticides, growth hormones, and chemicals, and we eat consume them on a daily basis. This increases our risks of acquiring mortal diseases such as Diabetes, High Blood, Stroke, and Heart disease. The following are the list of food we recommend for you to switch to organic first:

  • Turkey, Beef, Chicken, Pork
  • Strawberries, Raspberries, and Cherries
  • Apples and Pears
  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach and Salad Greens
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Celery
  • Peppers
  • Cucumbers

2. Combine Powerful Food with Better Nutrient Absorption

Fortunately, we’ve already got this tip half-covered. We strategically  designed your meal map, as well the foods you eat to help your body get the optimum nutrition it needs. But if you want to boost your nutrient absorption further, you can combine these powerful, nutrition-house foods into your meal recipes.

Tomatoes and Olive Oil – We all know that the Lycopene found on tomatoes have powerful cancer-fighting antioxidant properties but this nutrient is best absorbed when combined with a healthy fat such as olive oil. It is also revealed that lycopene absorbs more efficiently when you processed it into natural tomato puree and paste.

Spinach and Lemon juice (from squeezed lemons) – Green, leafy veggies contain Iron that promotes healthy blood circulation in your body. The presence of vitamin C enhances iron absorption up to 6 more times.

Eggs and Avocado – These two types of food are match-made in heaven. The healthy fats found in avocado helps the absorption of fat-soluble vitamin D found in eggs.

3. Eat Slowly and Chew

Tip of the Week: Chew your Food Thoroughly! A study says people reported feeling fuller when they ate slowly, thus helping you lose weight.:

We may sound like a broken playlist by now, but we’ll never get tired of reminding you of this simple and gentle advice: Chew your foods well and eat slowly. Breaking your foods into smaller chunks will ease your digestion. It can also help your gut to absorb the energy and nutrients from digesting foods.

Aside from that, your brain normally takes 20 minutes before it sends a signal that you’re full. So take time and relish in the foods you’re eating to avoid overeating.

4. Know when to soak, crush, or sprout your ingredients.

Our nutrient intake is not only determined by the food we eat but also with the way it is cooked. In order to get the optimum nutrition you need, here is a guide on when to apply the necessary cooking method for your meals.

Soak – Soaking legumes and beans overnight will help improve the nutritional value of your meals. Since legumes and beans have water-soluble nutrients after soaking, it will help your body to absorb minerals such as iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium easier.

Sprout – This method is good for pulse veggies such as alfalfa, mung bean. and chickpeas since they require more effort to soak. Sprouting can also increase the availability of nutrients stored in these veggies. Sprouting is best recommended if you’re making salads since it gives an extra nutrient boost.

5. Know when To Eat Raw/Cooked/Frozen Foods.

Whether you prefer to eat raw or cooked foods, we cannot deny that foods are nutritional powerhouses. But do you know when is the best time to eat them?

If the foods are rich either in Vitamin B1, B5, Folate, and Vitamin C, we recommend to eat them as raw. It’s because these veggies are sensitive to heat. When heated, their nutritional value decreases, so it’s best to eat them in their natural, uncooked state.

If the foods are rich in beta-carotene, (such as squash, carrots, and sweet potatoes) lycopene (tomatoes), we recommend to eat them best when cooked.

For fruits, you can eat them either as fresh or frozen. But research found that frozen fruits and veggies actually have richer nutrient compounds like vitamin C, antioxidants such as lutein and beta-carotene than their fresh alternatives. Frozen carrots and blueberries are the living proof of that.

6 Nutrients that Every Menopausal Woman Should Include in her Diet

Menopause is a natural physical transformation that women deals with, it is when ovaries stop producing egg cells. This process causes our body to undergo a hormonal change that may leave us to face its horrible effects and symptoms.

Here’s a quick guideline for your diet. There are essentially 6 nutrients that you should include in your diet for a gentle menopausal period.

1. Calcium

The most common misconception in the health and fitness world is that Calcium is mostly found in dairy products. Most of the fast metabolism dieters before were hesitant to start because dairy products are not allowed in this diet. They were afraid they couldn’t meet their Calcium nutrient requirement.

calciumIt is true that there are many Calcium-rich foods that you can consume that are allowed in this diet. You can opt to eat more Salmon, Halibut, Oranges, Kale, Sesame seeds, arugula, and broccoli since they are rich not only in calcium but also in healthy fat and protein. These foods can help you meet your daily Calcium requirement.

Note: Remember that the recommended amount of Calcium you needed to have in your daily intake is at least 1,200 milligrams. This is due to the fact that one of the disadvantages of menopause is decreased bone health. Thus, increasing your risks on osteoporosis. It is advised to eat Calcium-rich foods to prevent osteoporosis.

2. Iron

Although your body’s need for Iron decreases after menopause, your body still need Iron in order to maintain the circulation of your body through oxygen-carrying red blood cells. You can increase your Iron intake by eating meat, oysters, eggs, nuts, and lentils.

4. Vegetables

veggies

The most important food you need to incorporate in your healthy diet is veggies. Vegetables have no cholesterol, are low in fat and calorie, more importantly, they contain rich vitamins like Potassium, Folate, Dietary fiber. Vegetables can help achieve the healthy body you wanted, so we recommend you eat as many as possible (no limits!), just as long as you make sure that they are allowed in your current phase.

5. Fiber

If you’re already eating fruits (as per tip #3), then you should be fine with this. Fibers are primarily found from fruits. Fiber-rich foods help you lower your cholesterol, stress levels, boost your energy levels and make you feel fuller and satisfied.

6. Water

Last but definitely not the least, always maintain your water daily intake, especially if you’re undergoing through menopause. It will reduce the dryness you’re experiencing on your skin and private areas. The dryness is usually caused by the decreased level of estrogen hormone in your body. It can also help reduce the bloating that is caused by low estrogen levels as well.

We all know that most women dreaded facing their menopause because of the horrendous symptoms we got to experience. We’d have enough of that dealing with our menstrual cramps and now this! But with proper diet and exercise, we can diminish its effects and make it more bearable.

4 Signs You’ll Notice When You Lose Weight

Oftentimes we use the scale as a basis to determine how much weight we lost, without realizing that the scale cannot tell us exactly whether we’re losing weight or not. More so, the scale cannot tell you how much muscles you’ve gained (and weighed) and how much fats you actually lose.

4 Signs You'll Notice When You Lose WeightDid you know that the best way to determine whether you’re losing weight or not is by listening to the signals your body is sending you? Understanding your own body’s needs can help you assess your current lifestyle so you can make necessary changes to your fast metabolism diet plan for a continuous weight loss. Start watching out for these 4 signs to determine whether you’re losing weight or not.

1. You Need to Resize Your Rings

When you start losing weight, your finger’s size surprisingly shrink too. This is because your fingers also store fats like the rest of your body. Water retention can increase your ring size and if you’ve lost some weight, the tissue releases those water weight as well as the fats around your fingers. You will also notice this change on your shoe size.

2. You Look Thinner When You Look Yourself On the Mirror

The mirror is deemed to be our greatest enemies in our ‘weight conscious stage’. After all, who wants to be reminded of how we’ve gotten out of control when it comes to our food and lifestyle choices, but before you decide to pack that mirror and hide it in your basement, you might want to think twice!

Mirrors can actually become our best friend when we’re trying to lose weight. You may see yourself developing curves, belly flattened, and lean muscles developed even though you’re not losing weight on the scale. Looking and reflecting at the new you will keep you motivated until you’ve reach your desired weight.
Another way to keep track of your progress is by taking a before and after picture.

3. You Feel Colder than Before

Fats are a natural insulator, so you naturally find yourself able to withstand the chilly breeze every time you go to movie theaters or air-conditioned rooms. But when you started losing weight, you’ll feel yourself becoming sensitive to the changes in temperature and start developing a habit of keeping your sweater or jacket with you when going to cold places!

4. You’re Less than Likely to Crave Sweet Foods

One of the astounding benefits of losing weight is the ability to control your cravings for sweets. You enjoy the perks of losing weight while giving in to your sweet tooth BUT in moderation or none at all. You can also read the article Overcoming Your Sweets Cravings to know more about this topic.

Remember that it’s okay to evaluate your weight loss success on a bigger picture (e.g. weighing on the scale), but it’s also important not to overlook these small but essential changes in your body. Don’t let yourself be enslaved with the numbers projected on the scale. Instead, try to listen to what your body’s telling you and start acting accordingly.

Tips on How to Gain a Fabulous But Affordable Wardrobe While Losing Weight

One of the most highly-anticipated and life changing events we want to see in our fast metabolism diet journey is, of course, results. There is nothing more gratifying than to witness our body getting rid of those unhealthy fats and shedding off some extra pounds. We are all thrilled to see how our body transforms into a fit and fab one with likeable curves as a result of our hard work during the past few weeks of diet maintenance.

Tips on How to Gain a Fabulous But Affordable Wardrobe While Losing Weight 2While the thought of finally achieving our weight goal sounds awesome, we can’t help but feel anxious with what to do with our wardrobe. Do we need to get rid of them at this early stage? Do we have to buy a complete set of new wardrobes? We have some answers for your questions. In this blog post, we will give you tips on how to gain a fashionable yet affordable wardrobe without taking a toll on your budget.

1. Keep Wearing the Clothes You like

Is there a time in your life where you keep on wearing your favorite clothes over and over again almost to a point when everyone is suspecting you as homeless? Well,those favorite clothes of yours make you feel comfortable, so do keep them even if you’re losing weight. You can still wear your favorite belts, scarves, and sweaters while you are on a diet. You can still wear it up until you lose 20 pounds.

2. Don’t Buy Everything at Once

If you’ve lost more than 20 pounds, it’s ideal for you to go shopping and buy new clothes. However, try to limit your purchase up to 2 quantities per item. Since this is only the beginning of your weight loss, chances are, you are still going to continue losing weight so buying 5 pairs of jeans and shirts in one go just won’t do. You’ll only be wasting them since you’re bound to change your wardrobe all over again.

Instead, try to find the ‘comfort level’. Buy 2 pieces of jeans and shirt. If you lose more weight, you wouldn’t worry so much over tossing the jeans and shirts you recently bought since there’s only a few of them. If you still managed to maintain your current weight, then it’s time for you to buy more!

3. Redesign your Used Clothing

If you love sewing and have a deep fashion sense, then this is the perfect opportunity for you to use your creativity! Jazz up your used clothing and pair it with accessories to create a totally new outfit that put up with the latest trends in fashion.

4. Go for Resale and Thrift Stores

If you don’t mind using slightly used clothing, resale and thrift stores are a great way to save money while buying the outfits you want. Thrift stores generally don’t allow returning of items, so be sure to try your outfits on before buying and leaving the store. You can also check out for discounts, promo sales (like Black Friday and Cyber Monday) to save up.

5. Trading Your Clothes

If you have a weight loss circle around your neighborhood, try to trade your clothes to someone your size before. You can check people in your fitness class, resale shops, and social group. This will also encourage you in keeping your current weight since you are aware that your larger clothes are now gone!

It’s a norm for girls to perceive shopping as our reward mechanism for weight loss success. We’ve been dying to try those pretty clothes we saw at the mall before we reached our target weight, and now it’s in the tip of our fingers! But a little reminder, spending money is not the only way to make you look good and feel good. Get creative with your used clothing and you will  feel more positive and confident about yourself.
