The Secrets to Success in Your Health and Beauty

Active ImageSet the Scene

Make mealtime a total sensory experience. Take the time to add a garnish and appreciate the many flavors and textures of every bite. Play slow music and relax. Your body will be more likely to recognize it’s full if you eat slower.

 

Just breathe

Relax to alleviate stress. Relaxation keeps your body in fat burning mode, whereas stress hormones can actually trigger weight gain.

Quality over Quantity

Spa’s serve only the best quality food. Don’t skimp on quality ingredients, your waist line will thank you.

An apple a day...

Fiber, fiber, fiber. Not the most elegant item to talk about because of its ability to “clear things out.” But fiber can also help make you feel fuller for longer. Eating an apple a day can give you 4 grams of fiber towards your 25 gram daily goal. Choose fruits and vegetables as well as whole-grain breads, cereals, and grains with 2 grams of fiber or more be serving to get maximum results.

Protein Wise

Choose beans, skinless poultry, fish, soy products, and low-fat dairy or lean meats as your protein staples. Protein can mollify cravings and keep your hunger satisfied, but be conscious to choose low-fat low-calorie protein options.

Skinny fats

Don’t fear the fat. Eating fat and getting fat do not directly correlate. Healthy fats like omega-3’s found in salmon, avocado, and nuts can actually help you lose weight. Watch your portion sizes however, even nice fat can be a little mean.

One step at a time

Every step you take throughout the day counts. Park in the last space at the grocery store, walk to your local supermarket (and that shouldn’t be too far with one on every corner), take a sunset stroll while listening to your ipod. It all counts towards your healthy lifestyle.

Drink up

Dehydration drains your energy and may hurt metabolism. We recommend always carrying a water bottle, and consuming 6-8 glasses of clear fluids daily. You may think your body is saying I’m hungry when it is trying to say “I’m thirsty”.
