11 Summer Weight Loss Tips

1. Write down your weight loss goal.

Keep a journal. Write down what you want to accomplish. Writing down your specific goals will go a long way in helping you to achieve them. Do you want to lose 10 or 20 pounds? Do you want to fit back into your favorite pair of jeans? Then, also set goals for all the daily action items you will take each week. Do you have a friend who has the same weight loss goal? Work together to help keep each other motivated and on track. This helps keep you both accountable and successful in your efforts.

2. Avoid sugar and simple carbs.

This is easier said than done, but you CAN do it. Avoid sugar and simple carbs such as pasta, donuts, bread, chips, cookies and pastries, that quickly convert into sugar.

When you’re hungry for a snack, go for nuts like almonds, pecans, and walnuts. Keep hard boiled or deviled eggs in the frig. Peanut butter on celery or apple slices makes a very tasty snack, as well. Keep fresh fruit at home instead of muffins or donuts. Make a healthy protein shake with your favorite fruits and vegetables and add a healthy protein powder.

3. Increase your daily vegetable intake.

Vegetables have many valuable nutrients and fiber which helps you feel full. Eat green, leafy vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach and carrots.

4. Eat protein.

Protein helps you stay full and curbs your appetite. You will feel satisfied and less hungry. This can help you avoid overeating. Make a healthy protein shake with our delicious Pure Pea Protein Powder.

5. Plan your meals for the week.

This will help ensure your weight–loss success. You won’t have to think about what to eat. It will help you avoid those fast food restaurants when you get hungry, because you will already have healthy snacks and meals planned out and ready to eat.

6. Do the yeast-free eating program.

Yeast overgrowth, or Candida, can cause bloating and weight gain. Many people find that by eating yeast-free, the weight will start to melt off. The elimination of sugar and simple carbs, such as pasta, pizza, donuts, muffins, chips, and bread, to name a few, can help you jump-start your weight loss. There are many other health benefits of yeast-free eating such as mental clarity and increased energy. Click here to learn 10 reasons to do the yeast-free eating program.

7. Eat good fats.

The ketogenic diet, also known as the keto diet, is an eating program that focuses on eating good fats for fuel. The keto diet switches you from burning glucose (which carbs provide) to burning ketones (which fat produces) for energy. When you do this, your metabolism speeds up, your hunger goes away, and your muscle mass increases.

Here are some examples of good fats that you can eat on the Keto diet:

  • Avocadoes
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Fish Oil
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Flaxseed
  • Olive Oil
  • Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil
  • Organic Butter
  • Organic Ghee
  • MCT Oil
  • Macadamia Oil
  • Palm Fruit

8. Stay hydrated.

Drinking water throughout the day helps keep your tummy full in between meals. It also helps decrease fatigue and gives you more energy. Staying hydrated not only keeps fat toxins moving out of the body, it also keeps your metabolism running optimally. Add flavor to your water with lemon or cucumber slices to give it a fresh taste.

9 Stay active. Engage in physical activity.

This one’s a no-brainer. Go for a jog or walk several times a week. Play basketball, go swimming or take dancing lessons. Be creative. Do what makes you happy.

10. Sound sleep.

Research shows that an ongoing lack of sleep is linked to weight gain, even obesity. Sleep gives your body time to restore itself after workouts. If you are having trouble falling and staying asleep, try Dr Hotze's Sleep Formula.

11. Supplements for Weight Loss

These are some of our favorite supplements to help jump-start your weight loss:

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) 

Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA, is a polyunsaturated fatty acid. We do not produce it in our body, so we must obtain it from foods such as beef, dairy and butter. CLA may help speed up metabolism, as well as help to reduce fat and increase muscle mass. It supports optimal energy levels and has anti-obesity effects. Our specialized formula of CLA contains an extract of green tea leaf for maximum absorption and results.

Green Coffee Bean Extract

Green Coffee Bean Extract is a supplement made from green unroasted coffee beans that encourages weight loss. It contains naturally occurring caffeine and chlorogenic acid, a polyphenol antioxidant. It aids the body's natural detoxification process.

Our Fiber Blend contains probiotics, which provide optimal gut support. Fiber also helps you stay full after meals so that you aren’t hungry.

Detox Formula
