While we all know that the best way to lose weight is to take in less calories and exercise, it is somewhat more complex than this simple fact. While exercise is advisable to promote heart and overall health, some people just hate it, or are unable to do it due to back problems and other maladies. The other key to losing weight, that DOESN’T REQUIRE EXERCISE, is to TURN ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS HORMONES.
Your metabolism gets revved by activating these hormones which regulate your body’s ability to lose weight. The VIDEO you are about to watch offers 10 WAYS TO LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT EXERCISING, some of which turn on your weight loss hormones.
5 ways to turn on your weight loss hormones and/or activate your metabolism without exercise:
- Eat more slowly and mindfully
It takes about 20 minutes for LEPTIN, the body’s satiety hormone which signals that you are full, to kick in. If you eat too quickly you don’t get the signal from this hormone, that you have eaten enough. EATING HIGH QUALITY SOURCES OF PROTEIN is not only nourishing, but also allows you to feel full longer, by ACTIVATING LEPTIN.
- Include high quantitles of special fats in your diet
Fats known as MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDES, such as that found in COCONUT OIL, increases your sense of fullness, is not stored as fat as it is burned rapidly, and increases energy levels.
- Eat breakfast every day, shortly after waking
By eating within one hour of rising, you literally break your fast, which TURNS ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS HORMONES for the entire day!
- Get sunlight which is your best source of vitamin D
High Vitamin D levels help to boost your metabolism, and keep it at a speedy level.
When you don’t get 6-8 hours of sleep per night, your levels of Leptin decline so that it no longer signals that you are full. This is why getting good quality sleep, is responsible for your brain knowing whether you are actually hungry or not. If your Leptin level gets too low, it drives you to overeat as a way of gaining more energy for the body to consume, to make up for lack of rest. The weight loss hormone Leptin is critical in your knowing whether you are truly hungry, thirsty or tired.
