5 Tips to Speed Up Weight Loss | Windsor Weight Loss

Windsor Weight Loss ClinicOur patients lose weight. They lose lots of weight. They lose it fast and when they do what we tell them to do, they keep it off. However, there are always patients that wish to know some of the ways to speed up weight loss and body fat reduction. Here are some of the tips we cover at our complimentary Tuesday night nutrition and life coaching workshops.

1) Get More Sleep
Sleep is a critical component of improving weight loss and studies have shown that increasing sleep can accelerate fat loss. The body needs sleep to heal from injuries, recover from colds and flu, and sleep is necessary in the balance of our hormones, protein regulation and mood. Sleeping just an hour or two more per night can accelerate the fat loss program and most patients who improve sleep see other health conditions improve. Put away the smartphone, turn off the TV and turn darken the room, don’t let the room get above 72°, have some white noise and you will see quick results with better sleep and fat loss as a bonus!

2) Eat the Right Kind of Fat
It sounds crazy for me to talk about eating more fat when you want to lose body weight and reduce body fat, but fat matters! If you choose the wrong kind of fat, your body will not get sustainable energy, your cells won’t get the nutrients they need through their cell membranes and your brain will suffer! Eating essential fatty acids (EFA’s) is the first step and these fats are necessary for every cell in your body to function normally. Getting 3-6 grams of Omega 3 EFA’s daily can increase the enzymes necessary to burn fat and can aid in elimination and bowel movements, improve heart function, reduce the risk of stroke and improve gut health. Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are an important source of energy. Coconut oil, olive oil and grape seed oils are great oils to choose when eaten raw, when cooked, these are still great oils, but only to low temperatures. The higher the temp, the more the oils break down and the less energy we’ll get from them. Getting more of the right fat is better for your brain, your heart and your waist line!

3) Sweat!
Our body has an amazing system to remove and eliminate toxic substances. Sweating is a natural detoxifier and generating a sweat can get your metabolism pumping, increase your elimination and improve your skin. When you are well hydrated and really sweat, your fat literally begins to melt and you can see very significant changes quickly with frequent sweating sessions. Sweating should, of course, come from exercise, however there are other ways to get a good sweat, including steam and Infrared saunas, sweat suits, and hot baths with herbs that can produce a nice, whole body sweat. Use caution that you are plenty hydrated, have a diet rich in vitamins and minerals and sweating can be an excellent way to increase fat loss.

4) Spice It Up!
Many herbs and spices have medicinal properties. These herbs include turmeric, ginger, clove, cinnamon, oregano, basil, black pepper and garlic, just to name a few. Used liberally, these spices and herbs have the ability to improve your immune system and reduce your risk for dangerous inflammation. These herbs can help with pain, help improve gut health and have been used for thousands of years to successfully treat numerous health conditions. When combined with spicy foods like jalapeno and habanero and cayenne peppers, these foods also have a stimulatory effect of the metabolism. These metabolism stimulators can get your stubborn fat moving! If you’re not sweating when you’re eating, spice it up!

5) Count the Carbs
Carbohydrates can be an important part of human nutrition, however, our society has been over-dependent on sugary carbs and we eat grains, breads, and even sugary fruits and juices in quantities that cause our pancreas to over-produce insulin, and this in turns leads to fat storage, unregulated blood sugar, and eventually diabetes. Our consumption of carbohydrates far, far exceeds that of our ancestors and the consequences are disastrous for public health. The effect is literally killing us. Until we get our carbohydrate addiction under control, we are doomed to higher rates and younger cases of diabetes, worsening heart disease and Alzheimer’s, and a society that has a majority of people who are disabled due to obesity.

Learning to control our intake of carbs can not only help our pancreas heal and improve our blood sugar and diabetic conditions, when carbs are controlled enough, the body can re-regulate energy from sugar to fat. This conversion gives safe, fast fat loss. In our physician supervised program we are able to safely and effectively shrink body-fat stores and normalize weight and body composition. We can show you how to get the most out of the carbohydrates you consume and what is necessary to spare your protein/muscle and lose fat. Eating fat doesn’t make you fat, sugar does! Control the sugar and carbohydrates and you can change your body, change your weight and change your life.

Sleep vs. Exercise for Weight Loss | Windsor Weight Loss Clinic

Windsor Weight Loss ClinicWhich is more important for losing weight and perfecting the body, sleep or exercise? The short answer is they are both important but again and again, in the laboratory, medical weight loss clinic, and in the gym, sleep wins as the number-one most important factor in losing weight, gaining muscle and perfecting and balancing your body.

Exercise has tremendous benefits such as improved circulation, testosterone production, brain and heart health as well as reduced body fat. However exercise is often not intense enough to stimulate fat loss and not long enough to boost the metabolism. In mathematical terms, one pound of body fat is about 3500 calories. Therefore, in order to burn one pound of fat with exercise, you must burn 3500 calories. Easy, right? Just go run a marathon!

Personally, my joints wouldn’t be very happy with me if I had to work that had for only one pound of fat burned. I am not interested in creating repetitive stress injuries in pursuit of the perfect body. The solution? Exercise smartly, eat exceptionally, but first, go to bed!

Sleep plays critical roles in improving our ability to create hormones necessary to stimulate our metabolism. Sleep is our restorative and recuperative process that “re-sets” our hormonal clock. Recent research has shown that your genetic biological clock is not only found in your brain, but also in other critical organs like your pancreas, liver, kidneys and even directly in your body fat! Sleep enables all of these organs to work in concert with each other to perfect the chemical and hormonal balance that is your metabolism.

It only takes a small disruption in your circadian clock to disrupt your metabolism’s chemical and hormonal balance. Once this disruption occurs repeatedly, the systems no longer work together and the result is obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even cancers. If your pancreas is not allowed enough sleep time, your blood sugar will not regulate normally and the fluctuation of unregulated of low blood sugar and high blood sugar eventually cascades into diabetes. Kidneys, brain and other organs disrupted by a lack of sleep or poor sleep habits begin to function abnormally as well.

Fat has its own genetic circadian rhythm and if your sleep patterns are repetitively disrupted, the metabolic hormones necessary to burn excess body fat are disrupted. Then, hormones like cortisol begin to deposit fat instead of burning it. Critical brain hormones necessary for muscle recovery after exercise, muscle mass gains and general well-being are disrupted by a lack of sleep. Eventually, this disruption in the “feel-good” hormones of dopamine and serotonin and others can cascade into fluctuations of anxiety, depression and mood disorders.

So, what do you choose? Get up early and disrupt your circadian rhythm with exercise, or sleep in? In terms of the overall benefits, sleep will trump exercise every time. The real key to getting it right is perfecting the balance necessary between sleep (hormone regulation), nutrition (fuel for the system), and exercise (perfecting the machine).

Bottom line is that sleeping just two extra hours per night for as little as two weeks can stimulate more fat loss, balance more hormones and improve mood and outlook more than exercise alone. If you can get your sleep to improve, you will quickly notice you have more energy, more strength, fewer colds, a better quality of life and improved weight loss.
