Improve Your Health/Lose Fat

Here are 10 tips I’ve gathered about getting and staying healthy, and about small measure to help lose fat. I hope you find them helpful.

  1. Walking in nature is soothing and reduces fattening stress hormones.
  2. Research suggests that exposure to sunlight triggers release of the body’s stored fat that lies directly under the skin. This works with or without sunscreen.
  3. Certain plant foods are said to heal the gut. We all know that a healthy gut means a healthy body. So that’s something we need to strive for. Research shows these foods trigger changes in the GI system that help reduce calorie absorption and eliminate cravings by activating genes in the body linked to effortless weight control. These high-fiber plant foods contain lots of probiotics. Some of these ‘magic’ foods are: kiwi, berries, apples, bananas, leafy dark greens, onions, leeks, and garlic.
  4. If you’re looking to lose weight, instead of focusing on what you’re cutting out of your diet, focus instead on adding to it. Increase intake of water-rich foods like fruits and vegetables. This means foods like tomatoes, cucumbers, dark leafy greens, peppers of all kinds, melons, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, celery, onions, among the many.
  5. I love this fast detox blaster. Mix unpasteurized apple cider vinegar, a couple dashes of turmeric, ginger and cayenne, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a dash of stevia or Splenda with enough juice or water to drink it down–at least 4 oz.
  6. If you want to cut carbs but can’t stand to give up bread, you might consider switching to rye. Rye breads, especially dark pumpernickel, are shown to help you feel fuller longer which can help trigger weight loss.
  7. Craving sugary treats? A sweet, tart tasting food can awaken the part of the brain that amps up self-control. So, if you’re craving sweets and don’t want to indulge yourself, try sipping a mixture of a teaspoon of lime or lemon juice in a glass of water. This should eliminate your craving quickly.
  8. Have you heard of compression pants? I hadn’t until I read an article about them. Apparently, they’re made to support the circulatory system and speed the flow of oxygen throughout the body’s system. This helps maximize fat loss, especially when you wear them during activity. So, slip on your compression pants and take a walk, bike ride, or go to the gym and give them a workout.
  9. Standing up for 5 minutes every hour has been proven to help prevent hunger. Sitting too long promotes production of the body’s hunger hormone.
  10. Get enough sleep. It’s been suggested by research that getting 6-8 hours of sleep nightly will increase your energy levels during the day, enabling you to be more active, and thus helping you burn more calories.

Love is a mystery to be explored! Enjoy the ride. I write as Lynda Rees, I write what I loved to read–romance with a hint of mystery being screwed up by history, so romantic fiction with a bit of mystery and history. I'm interested in history of the mob-especially its influence in my home state of Kentucky; the wild west; Alaska, horse racing, riding and equestrian breeding. I'm fascinated how history affects current-day and frames our lives. The hero of my life story, my incredible husband Mike, and our family of critters thrive on a Kentucky horse farm. He's a saint, nurturing partner and my best supporter. I am a free spirited adventurer and a fun loving gal, with workaholic tendencies. Whatever crazy adventure I conger up, he is by my side. I have many faces, adept at juggling multiple priorities. I am a driven story teller, a dreamer, whose dreams come true. I've written blessings into my life since I learned to read at my grandpa's side at the age of five. Stories continual thread throughout every aspect of my life. I nurtured two amazing people to become phenomenal adults, my son Michael and daughter Brandy. I am working the same magic spell on my grandchildren, Harley, Hunter and E. J. Harley is co-author of my children's middle-grade books. I dreamed of an incredible man to share my life; two blonde, blue-eyed babies and a horse farm in Kentucky filled with family, fun, animals and laughter. A diverse background brings rare perspective and insight, which plays out in my work. Born in splendor of the Appalachian Mountains, the daughter of a coal miner and part Cherokee Indian, I grew up in Northern Kentucky when the Mob reigned supreme in Newport, Kentucky, and the city prospered as a mecca for gambling, prostitution and sin. My father instilled in me, a strong work ethic and capability to achieve my goals. Writing has brought me extraordinary experiences, opened worldwide doors and taken me to exotic locations I never dreamed to set foot in. Traveling the world, visiting exotic places and enjoying wonderful cultures flavors my words. I'm a member of Romance Writers of American, PRO; Association of Writers and Writing Programs; North Texas Romance Writers of America; Mid-America Romance Writers; Kiss of Death Writers; From The Heart Romance Writers and American Writers and Artists, Inc. Writing romance is my passion. I have been writing published in various magazines, newspapers, author a newsletter, have many adult and children's novels published. In 2020, my plans are to publish several self-help books and even more novels. My work is in eBook, print and audio book. My works are in the process of being translated so in 2020 they will be available in German, Italian, French and Spanish. So many stories swirl in my head at any given time, I drift off to sleep each night, as they brand themselves into my subconscious, eager to find their way onto written pages. I hope you find something that speak so your heart! Time for Romance! Lynda Rees Love is a dangerous mystery. Enjoy the Ride!
