WEIGHT LOSS – ASK THE EXPERT
When it comes to weight loss, people have a lot of questions, but the math is pretty simple. In order to lose the pounds, you simply must burn more calories than you ingest. Certain foods can make that easier, like BodHD’s FUSION 84 Calorie, Low Carb, Low Glycemic shakes. It allows you to limit calories, but in a nutritionally balanced way so that it maximizes your body’s ability to lose weight and stored body fat. Also, nutritional supplements like BodHD’s FIX help by increasing your energy level, boosting your metabolism and focus, and suppressing your appetite at the same time. And, let’s not forget about BLD (Enzyme Probiotic) and DAILY (Multi-Vitamin) in the battle of the bulge. These two powerhouse whole food formulas work to decrease inflammation in the body and supply it with powerful SuperFoods and Antioxidants to create a vibrant, lean body. Here are some of the commonly asked questions we get at BodHD about losing weight.
Q: Do I really need to count calories?
A: YES! In order to lose weight women should consume 1,300 Calories or less a day and men should consume less than 1,500 Calories. People tend to overestimate their physical activity and underestimate their calories. Jotting down the foods and calories you eat each day, as well as any physical activity, in a journal will guarantee that you stay on track. Also, beware of hidden calories in what you drink. Be sure to note those calories, too.
Q: If I just deprive myself for a few months, can’t I lose weight that way?
A: NO! A smarter approach is to change your eating habits. BodHD’s 10-day QuickFX Program (after the 1st day cleanse/detox) gives you a step-by-step program to change your overall eating habits so that it will become part of your lifestyle. Changes in the types of foods you eat and how much are the keys to long-term success, not deprivation. In fact, many studies show people that deprive themselves for too long will eventually gain weight back faster (yo-yo dieting).
Q: It seems harder to lose weight the older I get. Why?
A: As we get older, our body and brain chemistry change in ways that actually work against our efforts to lose weight. Our metabolism begins to slow down, which leads to weight gain. Also, as we age our pancreas releases fewer enzymes, which are essential to proper digestion and can lead to inflammation. Inflammation can cause the body to store fat in all the wrong places. And, did you know that the human gastro-intestinal tract houses the bulk of the human immune system, about 70% of it. That’s why BodHD’s created it’s SUPERFX Weight Loss System, which contains our Enzyme Probiotic BLD. BLD has 12 different plant-based vegetarian enzymes to assist the body in digesting fats, carbs, gluten, sugar, protein, lactase and more, as well as 4 different stabilized strains of probiotics.
