Today I want to tell you about a really cool tool I just found to help all of us reach our weight and fitness goals from Nowloss.com. Click on the link. You'll be taken to a page where you enter your gender, height, weight, age, and activity level. The chart calculates not only the calories you need to eat every day, but how you can break those calories down by number of meals you want to eat every day. It tells you exactly which foods will help you lose weight (or gain muscle, or get curves) and which ones to steer away from. It tells you the minimum amount of water you should drink every day. Once you lose the weight, it tells you your maintenance calories per day. This is the number of calories you need to stay under, or you will gain weight again.
The tool also gives sample meal plans from a variety of sources for each calorie level. I found meal plans for the vegetarian, the diabetic, the heart patient, the gourmet, and the busy person. There are tips for losing weight while in college, after having a baby, when you are "older," and just about every situation you can think of.
If you dig through the site a little, you will find a similar page about losing 50 pounds in five or six months. This page includes a huge workout section. If you combine the calorie-restricted eating plan with two hefty workouts a day, you really can take off about 50 pounds of unwanted body toxins in about six months. The site gives several options for working out. If you cannot afford a gym membership, there are a lot of home workouts listed. For cardio, you can just walk, or you can do high intensity interval (HIIT) training on any piece of equipment you have available.
Once you get down to your goal weight, there are lots of resources for bulking up for men, and getting a figure like JLo's (Beyonce, Marilyn...) for the ladies.
Bluebonnet Natural Healing Therapy is all about getting healthy naturally. I will get into herbs, tinctures, detoxing, cleansing and all that, I promise! But we are doing this "one step at a time." You can take all the chaga extract and Chinese mushrooms you want and not see results if you don't get the common sense stuff down first. Supplements are just that- supplements. We want to build our house (body) with a firm foundation of good ol' diet, exercise, water, rest, fresh air and sunshine, and healthy fun.
How do you like this tool? I'll keep a link up in the sidebar for easy access.
