Q&A: Swimsuit Belly Busters & More

Q: How do I lose the muffin top belly fat before swimsuit season?

A: This is a question that many of us are wondering as the swimsuit season has come upon us. Here are some tips and tricks to help you lose that belly bulge that has packed on since last season.

1.) Exercise in the morning BEFORE Breakfast

Early morning exercise not only helps you beat the summer heat, it has also shown to be more effective than eating before you train.  According to The Journal of Physiology, exercising in a fasted state before breakfast entices the body to burn a larger percent of fat for fuel, rather than relying mostly on carbohydrates.

SWH Tip:  The next time your alarm goes off, instead of hitting the snooze button, get up and get moving!  Run, bicycle, walk or swim – enjoy the outdoors and your body for even a few minutes before sitting down to breakfast.  And during the day you always have the opportunity to burn those calories!  How?  Walk Like Your Late For a Meeting!

2.) Eat More Citrus Fruit

According to a study done at the University of Western Ontario, naringenin, a flavanoid found in the fruit helps the liver to burn fat rather than storing it.  The liver is our biggest fat burning organ.

SWH Tip: Drink lemon water first thing in the morning and in between meals.  Making one of your daily servings of fruits an orange or grapefruit will help manage your belly bulge.

3.) CLA 3

CLA is known for its effectiveness as a  “fat fighter”, as well as a powerful anti-cancer compound.  The International Journal of Obesity conducted a study on adult males and found that taking CLA supplementation for a period of four weeks decreased abdominal fat significantly more than a placebo.

SWH Tip: Supplement your nutrition with Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) to reduce body fat and increase lean body mass.

4.) Vinegar

Vinegar is one of the latest ingredients found to be effective in the battle of the bulge.  A Japanese study led by Tomoo Kondo consisted of lab mice being fed a high-fat diet.  Mice that were  given acetic acid (the main ingredient in vinegar) developed up to 10 percent less body fat than the other mice.  It’s believed that acetic acid helps protein producing genes that help the body break down fats. Due to vinegars high concentration of actetic acid, it can help  you fight fat as well as increase your body’s absorption of minerals.

SWH Tip:  Eat LIGHT summer salads!  Try apple cider vinegar and lemon with a ‘drizzle’ of olive oil.

5) Make it YOUR priority to Eat, Drink & Breathe CLEAN and OFTEN!

Stress is one of the leading contributors to aging, weight gain and illness.  It is easy to get caught up in what you are doing and forget to feed your body what it needs to be at its very best!

SWH Tip: Stop, take a moment, make the small effort to feed your body well.  Take that sip of water and breathe in the oxygen we need to make all of those chemical reactions work that drive our metabolism.

Lookin’ Lean and Feelin’ Clean

Our inaugural 10 Day Spring Detox was a hit!  Congratulations to those who survived – we hope you enjoyed doing it as much as we enjoyed planning it.

Read what our Detoxers had to say about their experiences.

Marc M. – profession, age

Results: Lost 7.8lbs in 7 days

In his words: “The first 3 days were the most difficult.  I was hungry, I did not feel good about myself, I imagined this is what it felt like to be in rehab for an addiction.  I felt depressed and just did not feel very good about myself.  I was in a bad mood and could not shake it.  Almost like a light switch all of the feelings left me on day four.  The “skimpy” portion size of meals no longer seemed skimpy and I felt full and somewhat satisfied after eating.  My energy level increased significantly and simply felt GREAT.  I still wished I could eat something as simple as a sandwich or a slice of pizza, but know what I am doing is better.”

Cindy M. –

Results: Lost 4lbs in 7 days

In her words:

1.) How did you feel the first few days on the detox?

Actually, I felt pretty good.  I ate enough so hunger wasn’t a problem and I feared that the most.

2.) What symptoms were you experiencing?  Did you have headaches?  Were you fatigued?  Irritable? 

More than anything it was the cravings for the things I couldn’t have.  Cutting out my bread and pasta killed me!  No headaches.   No fatigue, I actually had a gradual increase in energy over the 10 days.  I have to say I was a little irritable due to the fact that I was cutting out the things I liked the most, i.e. candy, ice cream, and chocolate.

3.) What was the most difficult part of the detox?

Fitting the eating schedule to my lifestyle.  Eating every 3 hours while being on-the-go was difficult, but manageable with Stephanie’s help.

4.) Was it difficult learning to eat differently?

No, the sample menus and shopping list really helped. There is so much food to pick from that once I got in the “groove”, it was easy.

5.) When did you begin to notice your symptoms going down?

Looking back, it was a slow and gradual decrease over the 10 days.

6.) How did you feel by the end of the detox?  What positive differences did you see?

Lighter, leaner, more energetic.  Feeling better physically improved me mentally, which lifted me spiritually.

7.) How did we support you through this process?

Knowing that Stephanie was an e-mail or phone call away was obviously helpful, but also the positive reenforcement of the staff.

Wish you had done it??  You’re in luck because you still can!  We will be hosting 10 Day detoxes seasonally.  Our next detox dates are:

July 10-23
Oct. 16-29
Jan. 1-14, 15-28

Sign up by calling the office at (732) 667-3209 or e-mailing us at va@solariswholehealth.com!
