February 24th, 2016 | Posted by Gail in Recipes | So Lean And Clean - (Comments Off on Happy Birthday So Lean And Clean!)

We are soon to celebrate the success of So Lean & Cleans 5th Birthday!
I can’t actually believe it has been operating for so long, with 100’s of clients changing their lifestyle’s and understanding the health benefits of eating clean, it has been challenging at times but a real joy to see clients achieve their results and hear their comments as to hao they can’t believe they have regained the body of their youth!

I am going to share with you my top 10 tips of fat loss.

10 Top SLAC Tips Fat loss.

1: Have you tried fasting?

Research shows that fasting for 17 – 22 hours from your

evening meal until your next meal, really allows the body

to dig into the fat stores & gives the digestive system a break.

E.g You ate Wednesday night at 6pm your next meal will be

11 am on Thursday. The meal you break your fast with.

 

2: Ditch the dairy and eat green veg at every meal

You will get plenty of calcium & fantastic nutrients

providing you load up on veg.

 

3: Counting calories/points is NOT essential for fat loss.

Balancing your hormones IS crucial. Stabilising

cortisol & insulin levels is key. Eat clean foods

that minimise the secretion of fat storing hormones.

 

4: Ditch ALL cereals

ALL contain hidden sugar.

ALL will keep your fat storing hormones doing overtime.

ALL will eventually lead to fat gain.

 

5: EGGS are Super fuel.

Keep boiled eggs in the fridge to eliminate any cravings, the body loves them and like magic take cravings away!

 

6: Drink loads of water ,

up to 3 litres

Tap water is not great for fat loss.

Use bottled or filtered.

.

7: Carbs are NOT the enemy.

Eat good carbs like

Sweet potatoes, brown rice, root vegetables.

Eat small amounts & time these to be consumed

right after training or earlier in the day.

 

8: Do not rely on Scales alone.

Take weekly photos from all

angles.

Take your measurements & understand it really

is not about what the scales say with a Fatloss nutrition

plan.

You will continue to see your body fat reduce long after the scales have stopped showing a loss.

Aim for to a lunch style breakfast 3 x per week.

Cut down on your daily toxins or eliminate them.

Quit snacking.

Limit fruit & eat more veg.

 

9:Swap long cross trainer and cardio workouts for short HIIT training workouts and weight programmes.

10: Laugh, have fun, don’t be serious, enjoy your food,rest and play . Good endorphins should be released regularly to assist with fat loss.

Feeling Motivated in 2015?

January 16th, 2015 | Posted by Gail in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Feeling Motivated in 2015?)

Happy New Year to you ! Today is the historically busiest fitness day in the January calendar .

People have usually finally ate all the chocolates, cake & wine and thinking its time to now hit the workouts. Joining new gyms , signing up for personal training , seeking out new classes, watching the TV. programmes,  anything to keep them motivated.

There is so much to choose from out there that many feel confused if not even overwhelmed with choices & advice, especially as media can conflict day to day!

Why is that?

Everybody has there inspiration from different sources. Experience of losing weight with different diets, do Weight Watchers, do Slimming World, try the 5:2 , Have a go at the South Beach etc etc etc

But if they are still on a diet , then they are doing it wrong , so you decide to ditch the lunch time sandwiches for a month , go dryathlon for January but can’t wait for it to end, do you really believe the weight will stay off if you go back to the same habits?

Its really important that you make some solid promises to yourself , nobody is suggesting you should give up an occasional drink or two but every night? There are many reasons for health why you need to alter this habit and the least one is possibly to lose the weight.

Whilst in dry January make a list of these reasons , put them on your notes in your phone , stick them on post it notes around your office, wherever you need to be reminded why you are changing your routine now & why you should change for life.

My advice to you is choose natural food,no boxes, no packets, no tins. Don’t ‘diet’ don’t put a start and end date on it.

Understand the importance of ‘nutrition & hydration’. It may extend your life. It will definitely give you a better quality life.

Think first about putting the quality food in each meal , not putting in the packet things into your daily intake first and then adding a bit of veg to it.

Keep up to date with the latest exercise & nutrition advice where possible.

On So Lean & Clean we do that and give the support that is needed when making changes in life.

The next SLAC online plan begins Monday 26th Jan. Jump on board and I will show you the easy way to health & fitness.
