Are you panicking yet that summer is really right around the corner? Are you suddenly wishing you hadn’t eaten that extra piece of pecan pie, all the candy in your stocking, the entire box of Valentine’s chocolates you got, and all your kid’s Easter candy?

Yes, you’re not alone. It’s easy to look back and see why we’re not exactly bathing suit ready. But, that’s not helping the situation. You want to have a solution, right? You need to know what to do: stat.

Well, luckily, all is not lost and you can still salvage your physique. Here are 5 simple steps that will get you looking ripped and ready.

Step 1: Add HIIT

If you want to get rid of excess body fat, one of the fastest ways to burn off extra calories and fat is by adding HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Why does this work so well? HIIT cardiovascular exercise requires short bursts of all out effort followed by periods of slower cardio. The maximal effort you put into the bursts forces your body to use more oxygen than it normally does. This means you burn more calories.

And, the news gets even better. The extra oxygen usage means you’ll be burning more calories than usual for hours after your workout (after-burn). This condition is known as “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption” (EPOC).

A study in the Journal of Obesity concluded that HIIT exercise has a massive impact on your levels of body fat, especially in the midsection. And, you don’t have to do this type of exercise every day to reap the benefits. Doing three HIIT workouts a week, using 20-25 minute intervals is sufficient for maximizing fat burning.

Step 2: Up Your Protein

Protein requires energy to be digested. That means just the simple act of eating protein dictates that you’re going to burn more calories than usual. It stands to reason, then, that the more protein you add, the more calories you burn.

How much protein do you need in order to reap the fat-burning and weight loss effects? The typical rule of thumb is to get anywhere from .75 grams—1.25 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight, depending on your fitness goals, and your weightlifting regimen. Obviously, if you’re lifting heavy weight and really tearing it up at the gym, you’ll want to err on the higher side for protein intake. If you’re not getting in that much in terms of lifting, then around 1 gram per pound is a good start.

Protein also helps you burn more fat. It is one of the building blocks of muscle and you need to get plenty of protein to keep your muscles strong and allow them to repair themselves after heavy workouts. Adding extra muscle to your physique means you’ll require more calories to maintain your weight, and that translates to an increased metabolism. So, even if you didn’t change a thing, you’d naturally be burning off additional calories on a daily basis just by being more muscular. So, eat your protein!

Step 3: Eat Your Carbs at the Right Time

Yes, you still want to both watch your carbs and eat your carbs, but it’s critically important that you eat them at the most beneficial time. When is the best time? It’s going to be optimal for fat loss and muscle-building purposes if you can consume your carbs around your training sessions. Ideally, right after your weight workout is the best time to eat the bulk of your starchy carbs for the day.

The remainder of the day should consist of low carb and fibrous veggie selections as well as plenty of protein and healthy fats. This is the quickest way to maintain your muscle while burning off the maximum amount of body fat.

Step 4: Eat Enough Fats

Speaking of healthy fats, how do fats fit into the equation? Fats will provide you with the energy you need to get through your tough muscle-sparing fat-burning workouts. They’ll also help your body repair and recover quickly.

You need to eat fat to make sure your body is able to produce enough testosterone, absorb certain vitamins, have proper brain function, keep skin and hair soft and supple and more.

You’ll also want to make sure to include fat so that you feel full and satisfied. Eating healthy fat sources like whole eggs, coconut oil, fish oil, fatty fresh wild-caught fish, grass-fed meats and dairy products, raw nuts, nut butters and seeds will help your body release body fat while staying energized.

Step 5: Eat Organic and Fresh

Get plenty of fresh (and whenever possible) organic foods. When your body is not fighting against the food you eat, it will be much easier to lose weight. When your body doesn’t have to filter out the pesticides, chemicals, preservatives and other undesirables commonly found in our food sources, your body can simply use the nutrients in your food for fuel, and then focus on fat loss.

Getting the toxins out of your diet will mean less cravings, you’ll shed water weight and you’ll retrain yourself to be satisfied with the good wholesome tastes in natural foods.

Put all these steps into play in your lifestyle and you can virtually guarantee you’ll watch the pounds melt off your body. Throw in some weightlifting alongside your HIIT cardio and you’ll be transformed and beach ready by summer!

Do you have belly fat? We all know that belly fat is unhealthy. We all know that it is very ugly to look at. The question now is how do we remove that belly fats? First, we must eat foods which are rich in monounsaturated fats. Scientists have proven that if we eat foods that are rich in monounsaturated fats, we tend not to have heart disease and diabetes. They also had proven that it reduces the risk of breast cancer and lung cancer. Before, we just know that olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, but there are other foods that contain monounsaturated fats. These foods are vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, avocados and dark chocolate. Remember that if we eat too much of monounsaturated fats, we reduce the inflammation in our body and we improve the blood flow in our body. In addition to this, a MUFA diet can also flatten the belly. It is proved already over the years and you can try it yourself if you do not believe.

Second, you must avoid bloating. It is better if you start your Flat Belly Diet with the anti bloat jumpstart that will last for four days. Good nutritionalguidelines states that this is not a dangerous detoxplan so do not worry. To avoid bloating, you can try drinking a lot of water. You can try eating apples before you eat your meal. You must eat slowly to avoid swallowing air. Do not drink soda or fizzy drinks because it will produce bubbles that will just cause fats. Be aware of what you eat because pulses, dried fruits, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, sprouts, peppers and citrus fruits will create wind in your gut. You must also eat foods that are less in salt. Do not anymore chew gum because it will force you to swallow air and that air will get trapped in your stomach that will just cause the expansion of your belly and bloating. Avoid eating fried foods.

Third, you must reduce stress.. If you are stressed, your stress hormone cortisol will stimulate your appetite that will turn on your sugar craving and fat craving. The bad thing about here is that the cortisol also gives a signal to the body to store fat on your belly that is why you must never let yourself be stressed. Be happy and avoid doing stressful activities

What you eat can drastically affect how you sleep, so in order to get a good night’s rest, it is essential to choose foods that calm your mind and body rather than those that stimulate you. Certain types of foods will naturally promote rest and relaxation

Foods such as turkey, hummus, lentils, and kelp are naturally high in tryptophan and also contain nutrients that provide a host of other health benefits. In addition, bananas not only contain tryptophan, but also potassium and magnesium, which are natural muscle relaxants. Fresh and dried cherries are also one of the only natural food sources of melatonin.

Foods that are rich in starchy, high-glycemic carbohydrates may also promote better sleep, as they help to stimulate the release of insulin and tryptophan and cause these sleep-inducing substances to enter the brain. According to a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, carbohydrates that are on the high end of the glycemic index scale, meaning they increase the body’s sugar levels rapidly, encourage sleep when eaten at least four hours before bedtime. Foods such as Jasmine rice, potatoes, carrots, corn, puffed cereal, and honey are some of the healthiest choices of simple carbohydrates.

Eating these various foods calms your nervous system and triggers a sleep-inducing hormonal response, helping you rest better at night. However, timing is everything, as eating a large meal too late or eating right before bed time can actually have the opposite effect and keep you up at night. It is best to eat these foods later in the day or at least one hour before bed time since it takes about one hour for tryptophan from food sources to reach the brain.

Above all else, it is important to avoid rich, heavy and high-fat foods within two hours of bed time, as they require a lot of work to digest, and may cause stomach trouble and heartburn. It is also wise to avoid drinking too many liquids, including water, juice, tea or other fluids, as this may result in frequent bathroom trips throughout the night. Caffeinated drinks, such as soda, coffee or caffeinated teas not only act as diuretics, but will also keep you stimulated and make falling asleep that much more difficult.

WHY YOU NEED BACTERIA IN YOUR SYSTEM

OUR BODIES CONTAIN  TEN TIMES MORE BACTERIA THAN CELLS—AND THE MAJORITY OF BACTERIA LIVES IN OUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. THERE ARE 100 TRILLION VIABLE BACTERIA IN THE COLON COMPRISED OF HUNDREDS OF DIFFERENT SPECIES. BACTERIA IN THE COLON ARE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS GUT FLORA, AND WE NEED THESE BACTERIA FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH.

THE BACTERIA IN OUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM CREATE MANY BENEFITS. WHEN WE HAVE A GOOD BALANCE OF BACTERIA, WE HAVE A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM.
WE PROVIDE THEM WITH FOOD AND THEY PROVIDE US WITH MYRIAD BENEFITS, INCLUDING THE SYNTHESIS OF BIOTIN, COBALAMIN (VITAMIN B12), PYRIDOXINE (VITAMIN B6), PANTOTHENIC ACID (VITAMIN B5) AND VITAMIN K.
THEY ALSO SYNTHESIZE THE SHORT-CHAIN FATTY ACIDS BUTYRATE, PROPIONATE AND ACETATE.

WHEN OUR BENEFICIAL BACTERIA HAVE A STABLE COLONY COUNT, THEY PREVENT OTHER PATHOGENS FROM THRIVING BY USING ALL AVAILABLE FOOD SOURCES. THE HEALTHY GUT FLORA ALSO HELPS OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM BY STIMULATING THE MATURATION OF IMMUNE CELLS; BREAKING DOWN SEVERAL COMPONENTS INTO ACTIVE FORMS WE CAN METABOLIZE; AND INACTIVATING CERTAIN MUTAGENS AND CARCINOGENS, SUCH AS N-NITROSAMINES.

DYSBIOSIS HAPPENS WHEN OUR GUT FLORA IS NOT BALANCED BETWEEN SPECIES, AND WHEN PATHOGENIC BACTERIA ARE THRIVING. DYSBIOTIC POPULATIONS PRODUCE AMMONIA, INACTIVATE ENZYMES NEEDED FOR PROTEIN AND CARBOHYDRATE METABOLISM, DESATURATE  BILE   STEROIDS AND CREATE NUMEROUS SIDE EFFECTS SUCH AS DIARRHEA, ABDOMINAL DISTENTION, ECZEMA, IRRITABLE BOWEL, DEPRESSION, FOOD ALLERGIES AND AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.

DYSBIOSIS CAN OCCUR FROM ANTIBIOTIC USE OR BY EATING ANTIBIOTIC HIDDEN IN MEAT, POULTRY AND DAIRY PRODUCTS. STRESS, ILLNESS AND A DIET HIGH IN INFLAMMATORY FOODS SUCH AS NONORGANIC DAIRY AND MEAT OR HYDROGENATED TRANS-FATTY ACIDS CAN ALL DISRUPT THE BALANCE OF BACTERIA IN THE GUT. ONE OF THE RISK OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD IS IT CAN ALSO DISRUPT THE BALANCE OF BACTERIA.

TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY GUT FLORA, YOU NEED TO CONSUME BOTH PERBIOTIC AND PROBIOTIC FOODS. PREBIOTICS ARE HIGH IN NONDIGESTIBLE FIBERS, INCLUDE ONIONS, GARLIC, LEEKS, BANANAS, ASPARAGUS, MAPLE SYRUP, JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE, RYE, OATS AND BARLEY. PROBIOTICS CAN BE INGESTED BY SUPPLEMENTATION OR VIA FERMENTED FOODS SUCH AS LIVE ACTIVE CULTURE YOGURT, KEFIR, MISO, TEMPEH, SAUREKRAUT OR KIMCHI.
