All the tips you need to stay tight and toned this year!
The new year is well and truly upon us and now that gorging season has come to an end there really is no better time than the present to kick that booty back into shape! Shredding the post-Christmas coat tends to be a little easier said than done, but with some cheeky advice from our resident Nutritionist, you’ll have that banging bod back in no time!
When it comes to trimming down and toning up nutrition is absolute key! If you’re anything like the rest of the Australian population, I’m sure you had your fair share of food throughout the merry madness. Now’s the time to pump the breaks on overindulging and slide right back into a healthy eating routine. Load your meals up with essential nutrients and say sayonara to what you don’t need – silly season snacks, I’m looking at you. Base your meals around good quality protein to promote satiety and complex carbohydrates to provide a slow sustained release of energy. Add some healthy fats into the mix to prevent those 3pm munchies and viola, you’re back in the healthy eating game!
Gearing up with the right supplements is your next port of call when it comes to shredding those xmas-induced kilos. If you’ve promised yourself that 2017 is the year you’re getting your body in shape then it’s essential to get some Acetyl-L-Carnitine in your corner. This nifty little amino acid promotes the uptake of fatty acids into the cells, meaning you get more of your energy by burning fats! Can I get a hell yeah? And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it turns out your new fat-burning BFF also plays an impressive roll in healthy brain function – think improved memory and mood, increased mental energy and a big ol’ boost in concentration.
Thermogenic's are another kick ass supp to have on your team when it comes to fighting the flab. By raising the body’s core temperature and prompting excessive calorie expenditure, our fat burning friends increase the body’s metabolism AKA the rate at which the body can process and expend calories as energy. Cool, huh? Oxyshred earns the title of FIT fav thanks to its ability to not only act as a weight loss formula, but also as a recovery and mood enhancing matrix. Well played EHP Labs!
Nutrition and supplementation aside, if you’re looking to beat the post-chrissy bulge, it’s essential to throw yourself right back into a solid training regime. A combination of weight training and cardio is the best way to shred those unwanted kg’s so focus your sweat sessions around a combo of the two. Aim to move your body daily and replenish your muscles with a lean protein formula like OxyWhey, which doubles as a fat burner by stimulating metabolic activity and fat breakdown!
So there you have it, if you’re keen on kicking your new year off to a slim and shredded start, it’s time to up your nutrition anti, gear up with the right supps and jump back on the exercise bandwagon!
