3 Slump Busters for Fat Loss

3 Slump Busters for Fat Loss

  Have you plateaued in your fat loss goals? Here are 3 slump busters to get your metabolism feeling primal again:   1. Increase Your Calories 2. Change Your Macros  3. Change Meal Timing Increase calories– If you’ve been part of the calories in/calories out crowd then this can be shocking to hear. Your body deserves calories.Even a moderate amount of activity raises your daily calorie requirements. If your exercising and your results have haulted, then it’s very possible you’re under eating. Change your macros– Killing processed food from your diet is the perfect first step towards metabolic healing. But as your activity level changes so do your daily food requirements. Modifying the ratio of carbs:fats:protein could be the difference in furthering your progress. When your goal is fat loss it’s best to begin pulling the total carbohydrate load down and track the results in the first two weeks. Don’t forget, as you pull the carbs down, increase good fats and keep your protein between .5g-1g per pound of body weight.   Change Meal Timing– There’s nothing wrong with eating small frequent meals throughout the day…unless it’s no longer working. We’ve been told since the 90’s that you do this in order to speed up your metabolism. For some, this can actually cause a lot of work on your digestive system. The benefits of intermittent fasting show that spacing out meals throughout the day allows the gut to fully regenerate digestive enzymes, reduce triglycerides and normalize hunger levels. If you’re in a fat loss slump, try eating 2-3 large meals as a change up and track your results.

Headaches from Tight Neck

Headaches from Tight Neck

Your neck doesn’t just hold your head above your torso, it is actually lined with the tippy top segment of your spine. Your spine effects everything from allowing you to have the fine motor control to sign your name to the amount of strength you can generate to lift a fallen tree off of a puppy. Our common posture at work: flexed hips, a rounded upper back, and a protruded neck misaligns and compresses our spine- especially our cervical spine located in the neck and bottom of our skull. Ungluing the tightness you’ve created in your neck is one necessary step to releasing your head from its pain...
