When losing weight, the last pounds seem to be the hardest. Most of us have been there, right?
Here are some tips the lavender mama suggests to help us achieve our goal in a healthy and balanced way.
1. Start your day with water and lemon
Acidic stomach = good digestion = healthy metabolism.
Adding lemon to your water (room temperature) will help prepare your digestion for breakfast, plus it is high in vitamin C, and often helps ward off cravings.
2. Dine before 8 pm
In traditional Chinese medicine, it is best to eat dinner between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. During sleep, your body will be working on replenishing and healing your organ systems, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed.
3. Chew more
It takes about six minutes for food to travel from the mouth to the stomach. If we rush to swallow our food, it will be very easy to overeat before we realize it. A great way to eat less is by chewing more… slowly.
