Start Getting Ready to Lose Weight Today
When it comes to weight loss, nutrition is king. You can’t outwork a bad diet and achieve awesome results. That’s why I recommend substituting 1-2 meals a day with a delicious IdealShake. IdealShake makes eating healthy meals super convenient, affordable, and extremely delicious -but more on that in a bit!
Aside from getting your healthy meals locked down, here are 7 other incredibly effective things you can start doing today to lose weight. Keep in mind that you don’t have to make all of these changes in one day. Trying to overhaul your lifestyle in one week can be overwhelming and the last thing you want to do is burn yourself out. So instead try picking one thing to start today and add on more healthy habits as you go.
1. Find your why: You need to evaluate why you are trying to lose weight and give yourself motivation that isn’t just skin deep. Take some time to really think about why you want to lose weight. Is it your health? Your family? Your job? Or is it something even more personal to you. Whatever it is make sure your focus is on the reason why you want to lose weight and never let the number on the scale discourage you. When you focus on your why, it becomes a lot easier to get through the hard parts of weight loss.
2. Drink More Water: I want you to aim to drink about a gallon of water a day. If you don’t drink a lot of water, try doubling your water intake and then build up to a gallon a day. Drinking this much water has been linked to weight loss and reduced calorie consumption. Skip the soda and juice and only stick to water. Try drinking a big glass of water every time you feel the need to eat and then give yourself 15 minutes to see if it takes care of your cravings before you decide to take a bite.
3. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables: Try adding one or two extra servings of produce to your daily diet. These foods are full of nutrients and will help get you on the path to eating a more healthy and wholesome diet.
4. Get Rid of the Garbage: Junk food can be very tempting especially when it’s only a few steps away hiding in your kitchen. Instead of promising yourself you won’t eat them anymore, make sure you don’t. You’ll want to get rid of your high-sugar, high-fat, low-nutrition foods from your kitchen -this will help you avoid indulging in tempting yet very damaging foods. If you have kids or other family members who aren’t ready to take the plunge, start with removing the foods that tempt you the most. Pick one of these today, then go through your house and get rid of them. Don’t forget to replace these unhealthy foods with healthy replacements like IdealBar weight loss snack bar.
5. Move Your Body: Don’t feel like you have to run a marathon or bike the Tour de France to make a difference. Little changes really do add up. Park in the back of the parking lot. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. You can join my FREE 15 day challenge and workout in the comfort of your own home! Click here to learn more.
6. Make a Plan: If you bought your IdealShake thinking “I’ll figure it out as I go,” I’m here to help you do just that. IdealShake has changed lives and it can change yours too, but you’ll want a good plan to help you maximize your results. I highly recommend IdealPlan, a weight loss plan that uses IdealShape products and provides customized, catered meal plans based on gender and weight. IdealPlan takes all the hard work and planning out for you, so you can follow step by step and achieve results.
7. Set Goals and Pick Your Reward: Last but not least, I want you to set a few realistic weight loss goals. Then think of a non-food based reward to go along with each one. It’s important to set a lot of small and attainable goals that you can reach along the way instead of one big giant goal that determines success or failure. Little goals help encourage you and prevent you from giving up early.
How IdealShake Will Help You Lose Weight
IdealShake meal replacement has helped thousands of people lose weight and achieve amazing results. It’s effectiveness all boils down to a couple important, key factors:
- Each serving is low in calories and packed with vitamins and nutrients, with only around 100 calories (depending on the flavor) there is plenty of room to add mix-ins without going overboard calorie wise.
- IdealShake is designed with a special hunger-blocking ingredient to keep you feeling full for up to three hours. Losing weight becomes so much easier when you aren’t starving all the time!
- You can whip up a meal in a matter of minutes, which means eating healthy, tasty meals is easier than ever.
- Each serving of shake is only $1.66 (or less). Think about all the money you’ll be saving each meal!
See what I mean? By making the simple decision to replace 1-2 meals a day with IdealShake, you’re going to be able to control your hunger, reduce your calories, feel satisfied, and start losing weight.
To completely maximize your your IdealShake experience, here are just a couple things to consider:
What do you plan to mix it with?
You can mix our delicious IdealShake flavors with the liquid of your choice. Keep in mind that the lowest calorie choices available are either water or almond milk.
I will say that almond milk tends to be the popular choice considering its additional nutrition benefits, consistency, and flavor, but feel free to experiment with other options and find the perfect flavor balance.
Also, like I mentioned before, you can turn your IdealShake into a delicious smoothie by adding other mix-ins as well like peanut butter, fruit, yogurt, etc. You can find a bunch of smoothie recipe ideas in our smoothie recipe eBook, which you can get by clicking here.
How do you plan to mix it?
One of the most convenient ways to mix your IdealShake is in a blender or shaker bottle.
If you plan to just mix a scoop of IdealShake with liquid, a shaker bottle is perfect. You can take your meal on-the-go and get in a healthy, hunger-blocking meal whether you’re rushing out the door to work, school, running errands, or hanging out at home.
If you want to add mix-ins, a blender is perfect. Adding ice and frozen fruit to your shake and then blending it up will make for a thicker, milkshake-like consistency, my favorite!
What times of day should you drink IdealShake?
For the best weight loss results, I recommend replacing one to two meals a day with an IdealShake and eating small, 100 -150 calorie snacks in between meals.
For starters, I recommend replacing breakfast with a delicious tasting IdealShake, then eventually replacing lunch too, in conjunction with your healthy snacks and a sensible dinner that consists of a serving of lean meat, whole grain carbs, and LOTS of veggies.
IdealShake contains a powerful appetite suppressant called Slendesta to help block hunger, so replacing meals will be easier than you think. Not too mention, IdealShake comes in several delicious flavors, so you can completely satisfy your cravings!
