Shake Your Weight Off In 2014

29 Jan 2014 10:46 AM-

New Year, New You!

New Year’s resolutions involve setting new goals and making
plans for the year ahead. Maintaining a healthy weight is
a common goal for us all. If you find that your Christmas
indulgences have settled on your hips, or you have been
carrying excess weight for some time now, it is time to find
your motivation for change. Set yourself the goal of a fantastic
new you in the New Year.

Myth Busting Fads…

If you are overweight or carrying a few extra kilos, you may
already have tried those “fad diets” advertised in magazines
and on the internet. However, many of these diets can leave
you feeling hungry and slow down your metabolism, making
you more likely to suffer from rebound weight gain. This is
because these diets frequently focus on low fat foods which are
often higher in sugar or carbohydrates and low in protein. You
may register weight loss on the scales, but be losing valuable
muscle rather than fat.  It is important to ensure good muscle
mass is maintained during weight loss, as this will promote
healthy metabolism and enable you to keep the fat off long-
term without that rebound.
The Shake It Professional Weight Management Program can
help you successfully lose fat while maintaining muscle. This
convenient and simple to follow dietary program will help to
keep you feeling full, decrease your appetite and limit those
sweet cravings in order to facilitate successful weight loss.

Look Good, Feel Great

Losing extra body fat with the Shake It Professional Weight
Management Program not only brings the benefit of looking
good and feeling great, but can also help improve your
energy levels, reduce your risk of developing many chronic
diseases and encourage healthy ageing. It can also be a very
rewarding and empowering experience.

Benefits of Regular Support

Keeping motivated and staying on track with your weight loss
goals can be difficult to do on your own. Regular visits to
your Healthcare Practitioner can often be the key to success
in fat loss and feeling great. Your Practitioner can provide
professional advice to overcome your obstacles to weight loss.
As well as the support and guidance you will receive, they will
monitor your weight loss progress until you achieve your goals
and even help celebrate your successes.

Six Easy Steps to Looking and Feeling Great

The Shake It Professional Weight Management Program uses
a low carbohydrate, moderate protein approach to food
intake, which promotes steady and consistent weight loss. The
six simple steps of Shake It are:
1. Consume two healthy meals per day consisting of a palm
size portion of protein and three handfuls of allowable
vegetables. One handful of vegetables may be replaced by
an allowable portion of fruit each day.
2. A high protein meal replacement once per day in the form
of a shake, soup or bar.
3. Include two low carbohydrate protein snacks per day.
4. Incorporate healthy oils as a part of your daily diet.
5. Aim for 40 minutes of moderate intensity exercise four
times per week, or as recommended by your Practitioner.
6. Measure your ketones using Ketostix™ twice daily. Ketones
appear in your urine if you are burning fat. By measuring
ketone levels every day, you can monitor your fat burning
in real time!

Move It to Lose It

Exercise is an integral part of any type of weight loss
program. It has a beneficial impact on appetite, and
provides long-term health benefits. Under the guidance
of your Practitioner, aim for or build up to 40 minutes of
moderate intensity exercise, where you are puffing but can
still talk, at least four days per week. Activities can include
a combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercise such as:
• Walking
• Yoga/Pilates
• Swimming
• Weight bearing exercises
