During Your Challenge
Our top tips to maintain your results and keep your body healthy.
Be real about it. You can’t expect to have good result without exercising a little bit. Sweating helps to get rid of excess salts which cause water retention. Plan your training sessions during your detox challenge and try to hold them!
Proteins in your meals
In particular… during breakfast! In the beginning of your weight loss journey, protein is important because it helps you feel fuller longer and avoid the 10 o’ clock craving. Proteins are not only in meet! Nuts, lentils, beans, quinoa, tofu, soy milk, oatmeal, etc...
Avoid sugary drinks
It is recommended not to drink more than one glas of sugary drink per day. Sodas, energy drinks, ice tea contain too much fast-acting sugar and too many calories. As a rule, drink water, a lot of water.
When you're trying to get back on track, the hardest part is actually following through with it. Our advice: take a before pic (any progress is good progress), tell your girls your mission by posting about it on Insta. This will hold you accountable to progress.
No bad fat
Not all fat is the same. While bad fats can wreck your diet, good fats are vital to your physical and emotional health. You can find healthy fat in avocados, olives, almonds, walnuts and vegetable oil for instance.
Never give up
A chocolate croissant or a candy bar will leave you craving more sugar, and more food in general. If you're hungry during the day, eat a fruit!
Hunger ≠ Boredom
Slow eating is synonym with better digestion, better hydration and easier weightloss. It gives your body time to recognize that you’re full. Eating slowly also helps us feel more satisfied by appreciating each mindful bite. So, turn off the TV, close your laptop, lock your phone and pay attention to your meals!
Do not weigh yourself daily
It is almost impossible to see changes by weighing yourself every day. If you’re not self-confident, minor fluctuations will even freak you out and discourage you from pursuing your efforts. Weighing yourself once a week will give you a more accurate read of your progression.
Drink a lot of water
Drinking water increases the amount of calories you burn and reduces appetite if consumed before meals. Try to drink at least 1.5L of water every day (including our tea blends).
