It sounds too easy, however the compound effect of a daily walk is enormous in getting the body of your dreams. This 1 cornerstone habit is non-negotiable.
Walking is your secret key to balancing hormones, helping lower stress, and losing your belly & love handles for good.
If you're speed walking, I need you to slow it down. Leisure walking is all I want. Put on some music, take the dog, relax and enjoy. Your walk should be in a Zone 1 or a Zone 2 max.
Not sure how to find your zones? Check out the link below.
Intermittent Fasting (IF) has been quite the rage lately in dieting. It's basically giving your body a break from food (not eating) for specified periods of time.
Side note - I don't recommend IF especially if you have low blood pressure readings (below 112/74). You need food, and the ability to digest it, if you have low blood pressure.
The 3 P.M. Carb Cut-Off is easiest to explain using fasting terms. While you're not fasting from protein, fat or green carbs, you are fasting from high sugar foods from 3 p.m. until breakfast the following morning (yes-you should always eat breakfast). The 3 P.M. Carb Cut-Off gives your body a 16-18 hour window to work on lowering insulin levels, which means bye-bye belly!
Please- don't go hog wild on sugar and junk you wouldn't normally eat just because of the cut-off. I'm simply asking you to eat normally with one exception - after 3 p.m. stick to protein (meats), fats (oils, nuts, etc.), and green carbs (broccoli, salad, etc.).
If you like to keep it easy (like me), stick to green carbs after 3 p.m. If you need a little more variety, I've given you a list of low & medium carb foods that will work for the 3 p.m. cut-off. Keep it simple and do what works best for you.
