Here we are – in the final days of our Cityline 2013 Weight Loss Challenge. We have had incredible success with our weight loss winners and want to wrap up the final month with a bang!
To give you a brief update, the following is the amount of weight our winners have lost thus far:
Mary – 28 pounds down!
Mel – 17 pounds down!
Stefania – 30 pounds down!
That is a total of 75 pounds!
In the final 30 days, I am planning to “crank it up” a notch. For those of you who have been following along with me and have lost weight, or, for those who just realized they wanted to jump-start their weight loss before the summer hits – this is for you. All I am asking you to do is to just give me 1 month. Why 1 month? The reason is because I know if I have you follow the steps outlined below for just a month, not only will you lose weight and flatten your tummy, you will also feel energetic, well-rested and an overwhelming sense of wellness.
So whether you only have 5-10 pounds to lose or are just getting started…. let’s get it done! Simply commit to following the 7 simple steps below and you too will have incredible success.
Are you ready to be part of my 1-month club? Let’s do it!
Step 1 – Drink 2 litres of water per day. Upon waking, squeeze half a lemon into 1 cup of water for its cleansing effect. For weight loss purposes, include 2 cups of green tea as well. The EGCG content in green tea has been shown to boost metabolism.
Step 2 – Limit yourself to 1 grain maximum per day. Do not eat your grain option past 3pm. Grain options include:
- 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa (gluten-free!)
- 2 pieces of sprouted grain bread
- 1/2 cup of brown rice
- 1 whole grain wrap
- 10 Mary’s crackers (gluten-free!)
- 3/4 cup of whole grain cereal (i.e. All-Bran, Nature’s Path)
Step 3 – Do not…. I repeat, do not skip breakfast. Please refer to the Cityline website for some quick and easy protein-filled breakfast options.
Step 4 – Focus on nutrient-dense, calorie-light foods. In other words – all your vegetables are free. I don’t have one client who gained weight from eating too many carrots or celery sticks. Whether is it a vegetable soup, salad or just munching on raw veggies in the evening – go for it!
Step 5 – Protein it up! If you are hungry in between meals– grab for some protein. It can be a small amount of chicken, a hard-boiled egg or a small Greek yogurt. When eating a meal, women should consume a minimum of 3-5 ounces of protein per meal; men should consume 5-7 ounces of protein per meal.
Step 6 – To crank up your results – cardiovascular activity is king. A brisk walk or run for 30 minutes 5 x per week is best. With the weather getting warmer, springtime is the best season to tackle your weight loss goals.
Step 7 – As the Nike slogan states – just do it! There is nothing better than feeling strong and energetic. The meal plans, video clips and recipes posted on our 2013 Weight Loss Challenge will take you there.
