Wholefoods & Healthy Fats
It’s evident that if you eat a fresh, healthy salad of kale, carrots, nuts, legumes, and various seeds drizzled in your favorite non-dairy salad dressing is far more robust than a bowl of old school ramen noodles (without vegetables) and bag of cheese puffs, The fuel you put into your body is essential and the less processed the food is the more weight you will lose. Instead of eating chips (fried food), candy, baked goods, starchy foods, buy and cook with vegetables and fruits you enjoy. Most common healthy plants to have around for cooking meals and tossing together delicious salads are:
Your Favorite Beans
Extra-virgin Olive Oil
Of course, there’s so many fruits and vegetables missing from this list for no reason whatsoever. As you begin to experiment in the kitchen and at the grocery store, you’ll find exotic produce that you can’t live without in a salad such as the fantastic jicama. The point is, start eating more vegetables and don’t stop trying new salad toppings. Every time you want to eat sugar, instead eat fruit.
Green tea is the most typical tea suggested for those on a diet. The easiest way to burn fat is to avoid sugar. When you introduce sugar into your system, your brain will use the sugar as fuel instead of targeting fat as fuel; this is part of a particular diet plan known as the ketosis diet. With so many teas to choose from the best drinks for weight loss and appetite suppression are:
Star Anise Tea
Apple Cider Vinegar
There are too many benefits to apple cider vinegar, from making yummy salad dressings to conditioning your hair, that apple cider vinegar deserves a gold star for being so versatile. For a fat burning tonic that boosts energy and metabolism and reduces blood sugar spikes, mix these ingredients into a cup and drink on an empty stomach or with a meal and drink any time you want:

Besides adding baking soda to your bath, the reason we mention this amazing agent of the house is for a secret known by athletes called ‘soda doping.’ Soda doping is common to the sports industry, especially for runners in need of an energy boost before a game or practice.

If you take medications or have sensitive medical conditions, ask your doctor if drinking a small amount of baking soda will be of benefit to you.
Ancient Egyptians have been utilizing the benefits of the fenugreek seed (or methi seeds) to spice up foods and as a beauty enhancing supplement for centuries. It’s important, like all herbs and supplements to limit your intake and never consume more than the recommended amount.

Amino Acids & More

A Massage Therapist

A Nutritionist Specialist
We added this to our top ten list for those who have specific dietary needs and restrictions.
