5 Secrets To Permanent Weight Loss

With fad diets round every corner, it is quite difficult to keep a tab on which weight loss tips REALLY DO work and which don’t. Here are 5 secrets to permanent weight loss that we have personally seen work.

Avoid Grains!

Contrary to what you may have heard, grains will make you fat! What you say? I thought grains were good for me!!! Well, think again….what do you think they give cattle to fatten them up? Yup, grains. Seriously, for you to really drop the fat weight and feel better, drop the grains! Grains increase your level of insulin, which makes your body store fat. Grains are actually a ‘filler food’ and are not necessary for better health. Metabolic and mood disorders, diabetes and other related diseases are all linked to ‘bad for you’ carbohydrates (grains and sugars). Instead, choose from theses grain alternatives; squash, sweet potatoes, yams, summer squashes, quinoa and wild rice.


Eliminating or reducing the amount of sugar in your diet is KEY to weight loss. Did you know that artificial sweeteners actually tell your body to EAT MORE! Instead, limit and choose from these natural sweeteners; stevia, raw honey, palm sugar, real maple syrup, unsulphured molasses, brown rice syrup, barley malt, date sugar, evaporated cane juice, lou han guo and dried fruits.

Spread Meals Apart

Three meals a day is all you need. Spread the meals apart to allow for energy to come from fat reserves. Consuming 5 or 6 small meals a day might help boost metabolism but allowing for your body to get it’s energy from your fat reserves is much more effective for fat loss.

Drink Plenty Of Water

The process of burning calories requires an adequate supply of water in order to function efficiently; dehydration slows down the fat-burning process. Burning calories creates toxins (think of the exhaust emitting from your car), and water plays a vital role in flushing them out of your body. Drinking water between meals will help you spread your meals apart, tapping into your fat reserves for energy.


Move daily! Maximise your daily fat burning by moving! Many researchers have found that leaner people tend to stand and move more than overweight people in normal daily life. Great exercise activities include; Yoga, jogging, hiking, sports, weight lifting and even walking.
