TIPS & TRICKS TO SUCCESS. DRINK UP!

Check out image below on why drinking water is so important to our success for a Healthy Metabolism. Setting our body up for success and helping it feel great will make you feel amazing and want to keep up these new habits!

Hydration is key for many factors that play a role in weight loss, including:

  1. Water is a natural appetite suppressant ⏤ When the stomach senses that it is full, it sends signals to the brain to stop eating. Water can help to take up space in the stomach, leading to a feeling of fullness and reducing hunger. Drinking a glass of water before reaching for something to eat can help to curb unnecessary snacking.

  2. Water increases calorie burning ⏤ Drinking cold water may further enhance water's calorie-burning benefits, because the body expends energy {calories} by heating up the water for digestion.

  3. Water helps to remove waste from the body ⏤ When the body is dehydrated, it cannot properly remove waste. Water helps the kidneys to filter toxins and waste while the organ retains essential nutrients and electrolytes.

  4. Drinking water can reduce overall liquid calorie intake ⏤ It's easy to accumulate liquid calories by drinking soda, juice, or sweetened coffee or tea. Replacing even a few high-calorie drinks each day for water or herbal tea, may have long-term weight loss benefits. (refer to the PRINTABLE sheets for your tribe to track water intake)

  5. Water is necessary to burn fat ⏤ Without water, the body cannot properly metabolize stored fat or carbohydrates.

  6. Water helps with workouts ⏤ One of the most important components of any weight loss plan is exercise. Water helps muscles, connective tissues, and joints to move correctly, as well as helps the lungs, heart, and other organs work effectively as they ramp up activity during exercise.

DAY 2 - master your metabolism

Did you know that our metabolism is influenced by more than our diet and lifestyle choices?

A healthy metabolism actually begins with a healthy immune system, which begins with a healthy diet containing optimal levels of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids.

Poor nutrition, stress, inadequate rest, and exposure to other environmental stressors can all lead to weakened defenses and other factors that can compromise health. The dōTERRA Lifelong Vitality Program is formulated to provide nutritional support for healthy immune function.

Alpha CRS+ provides powerful antioxidant and immune support through a potent blend of polyphenols and the carotenoids lutein and lycopene.

xEO Mega and vEO Mega are formulated with immune supporting essential fatty acids, astaxanthin, and a proprietary blend of essential oils including Clove Bud, Frankincense, and Thyme.

Microplex VMz is a balanced formula of essential vitamins and chelated minerals that include immune-supporting nutrients; vitamins A, C, E, and B6; and the mineral Zinc.

Check out the graphic below for more in depth look at the role of our immune system in metabolic function.

DAY 4 - master your metabolism

Let’s Start the Day off right with DRY BRUSHING WITH SLIM & SASSY OIL! Not only do we want to ingest Slim and Sassy oil in a capsule or our water but topically is an amazing addition to our skin and health.

17SandSdrybrush.png

DIY: HOW TO DRY BRUSH

Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend is predominantly used internally, but did you know that topical application of this proprietary blend also boasts amazing results?

One of our favorite ways to use Slim & Sassy topically is in combination with dry brushing - the act of brushing over dry skin. It is a natural health practice that stimulates the connective tissue attached to the capillaries sitting under the skin, which assists the lymphatic flow around the body ridding the body of toxins and waste and improving circulation. Research also suggests that dry brushing helps reduce cellulite by speeding up metabolism, which helps break down fatty deposits or toxins within the bloodstream that often cause cellulite.

Regular dry skin brushing exfoliates dry, rough skin, enabling moisturizing products to more readily absorb into the skin, assists with stimulation of sweat and oil glands, contributing to the restoration of moist, supple skin, strengthens pores by assisting with increased skin tone, and gently stretches connective tissue to help regenerate production of collagen and elastin fibres.

Enhance these amazing benefits with the addition of Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend to your dry brushing regimen!

detox bath

Did you know that Epsom salt is not actually salt, but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate? Long known as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, Epsom salt has numerous health benefits as well as many beauty, household, and gardening-related uses, making it a household essential.

The wonders of Epsom salt have been well known for hundreds of years and have beneficial properties that can soothe the body, mind, and soul. Some of the countless health benefits include relaxing the nervous system, curing skin problems, soothing back pain and aching limbs, easing muscle strain, healing cuts, treating colds and congestion, and drawing toxins from the body.

The fan favorite way to use Epsom salts is a long, relaxing soak in the tub. Add the health-promoting benefits of Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend to those of Epsom salts, and prepare to leave the tub a different {wo}man than when you entered it!

WEIGHT LOSS AND OILS IN A NUTSHELL

There are many reasons why we gain weight, but the most common causes are the direct results of excessive eating and poor nutrition.

While the focus for weight management should primarily be on what and how much food is consumed {appetite} and how well it is utilized as fuel by the body {metabolism}, balancing other processes such as blood sugar, inflammation and hormones is often necessary for long-lasting results.

Check out the image for some insight into the role of essential oils in weight loss and maintenance.

Let’s Learn to REST & STRESS LESS!

You never really appreciate how important rest and stress management are until a lack of them is already having a powerfully negative impact on your overall health.

Modern life is often fraught with stress, and almost everyone is ironically too busy to deal with it. It can be easy to excuse it away and say that we work best under stress, that stress is a great motivator. This is partly true; the good type of stress, known as “eustress” helps us seize the moment, and invigorates us to achieve a tangible goal.

On the flip side, there is also bad stress, called “distress”, that can be harmful in the long run. When we face either type of stress in our daily lives, our bodies respond by secreting a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is useful to help us react to temporary stress, like the stress caused by deadlines. But scientists say that too much cortisol can cause weight gain, negative emotions, joint discomfort, and more.

Unfortunately anxious feelings and stressful situations are not going to simply disappear. This is where dealing with our stress becomes a priority. Managing a lot of daily stress comes down to some simple and quick solutions listed below. While this list is not comprehensive, it is a start in helping you identify ways to help yourself. We recommend that you pick the easiest solutions for you, and then practice them on a daily basis or whenever you feel the need.
