The key to any successful diet is that it is customized for you. At Equilibrium we offer a culture of healing where we look inside your body to see what is happening and you choose from a menu of services based on your medical data, genetics, and personal goals, and not other people’s opinion about what is right for you.
No! Successful weight loss is 75% dependent on what you eat and only 25% on exercise. It is more important to focus on eating the proper amounts of healthy foods than going to the gym. However, walking just 20 minutes per day is not only good for your overall health but it will help you lose weight faster, and make you happier. You deserve to live the healthiest life possible without feeling shame or pressure. You don’t need to be perfect- just motivated!
Water curbs your appetite. And dehydration can slow you metabolic rate and stall fat loss. In fact, in a 2013 study showed 14 healthy men and women increased their metabolic rate by 30 percent after drinking about 16 ounces of water! Drinking plenty of water also helps flush your fat and toxins stored in your fat cells, so you not only look slimmer, you feel better.
YES! Drinking one to three cups of matcha green tea can rev up your metabolism and help you lose weight because it delivers more of the healthful elements of green tea than any other form. Research has shown that green tea is effective at promoting weight loss because of its high levels of catechins, a disease fighting antioxidant, that increases your fat-burning potential as much as 17 percent. One serving of matcha is nutritionally equivalent to 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea!
Foods high in fiber will help you feel fuller longer and reduce sugar cravings. Plus, fiber gets your digestive tract moving so you can go to the bathroom regularly. It also helps to balance blood sugar. Berries, apples, spinach, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts are all delicious high fiber foods.
