To Kale With It: 7 Secrets to Know for Effective Weight Loss Results

At Body SymmetryMD
we know how difficult it can be to stick to your New Year resolution of losing those love handles (whch magically appeared after the holidays).

But just like any other challenge we may face in life, taking baby steps in the right direction can lead to big changes over time. Here are 7 secrets for effective weight loss results that can help you move closer to your goal(s):

1. Kale is key for keeping that figure.
Whether it's a prescription hCG program, a Paleo diet or a juice fast... kale is usually allowed on just about any weight management regimen. It's not only rich in iron, high in potassium and jam-packed with Vitamin C... it's low in calorie and can really aid in weight loss because of its dense vegetable protein & fiber contents.

2. Green tea is great for your waistline.
Having trouble kicking that sweet tea habit? Here's a great substitute to try. This antioxidant-rich beverage can help you manage your weight over time and here's how: Sipping on 1-2 cups of this stuff in place of soda can even save you 50,000 calories over the next year (teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikinis, here we come)!

3. Infused water is H2-oh-so-good.
Yes, juices and carbonated drinks and other quenching libations can be refreshing, but so can water (especially when you spruce it up). To jazz up your h2O without adding in extra calories, try infusing your next pitcher with fresh mint leaves, tangy lemon wedges or crisp cucumber slices. Gulping down infused water can help rev up your metabolism, which in turn, means you'll be burning more calories throughout the day too!

4. Cinnamon is a sinless way to sweeten up your food.
It's a spice you can sprinkle into your drinks and foods without adding on extra calories... and something cool you may not know about this brownish powdery stuff is that it can actually delay the passing of food from your stomach into your intestine, causing you to feel fuller longer. When you feel full, you of course, will eat less, which can ultimately help you get steps closer to achieving that weight loss goal of yours. Sounds sweet enough, doesn't it?!

5. Don't be foolish, fill up on fiber.
Although dietary fiber isn't a weight loss cure in itself, it does have the power to fill you up with out packing you full of unwanted carbs, fats or calories. So which foods are chock full o' fiber? Try your hand at fresh veggies like kale, peas, broccoli and even turnip greens.

6. Bowel movements are a must.
For some people this may be an odd topic of conversation... but when it comes to seeing significant changes on the scale, it's important we discuss this matter. Although there is no exact definition of just how frequently we should go, it's important to take note if you don't have at least 3 bowel movements in a week. The fewer times you go during the week, the less frequently your body can rid itself of the gunk your body doesn't need... which can eventually stall your weight loss results over time.

7. Savor your snack time in between meals.
Snacking in between meals doesn't have to be revered as such a bad thing. In fact, having a small portion of something healthful in between your meals can keep your metabolism humming along efficiently so it continues burning calories all day long. The key to getting the most benefits from what you munch on, however, is to nosh on foods with nutritional value (so just say no to vending machine goodies or your coworker's candy jar)!
