60-second weight loss

Losing weight can take no time at all…

And in today’s email I want to give you 7 60-second weight loss tricks that can help shrink your waistline and firm up your body in less than a minute.

1. Do Jumping Jacks

Studies show that you get better results from exercise when you do them in short, all-out bursts than if you were to spend 30-minutes on a treadmill. Set a timer on your phone for 60-seconds and do as many jumping jacks as you can to get a fat-burning boost whenever you want one.

2. Drink A Glass of Water

Staying hydrated helps keep you satisfied and energized between meals. It also keeps you from getting hungry… because a lot of times when you’re thirsty your body confuses it with hunger… which leads to pesky cravings. Every hour or two, stop by the sink and drink 8 ounces of water.

3. Use A Mirror

Put a mirror near your table when you eat. Scientists found that when you eat unhealthy foods (like chocolate chip cookies or kids’ cereal) in front of a mirror, it causes foods to be “less tasty.” The less tasty they are, the less you’ll want to eat them. I suggest only using the mirror trick when you don’t have company over.

4. Chew Gum

Chewing gum burns a few calories but the biggest benefit is that it curbs your appetite. The action of chewing helps distract your mouth and your brain from thinking about food, which helps to keep you from mindless snacking.

5. Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a wildly underrated vitamin for weight loss. Not only will it help protect your bones, strengthen your muscles, and lower your risk for cancer; but studies show that one pill a day can help block the effects of cortisol, a stress hormone that leads to excess tummy fat.

6. Light A Candle

When you’re finished with dinner, light a scented candle in your home. But not just any scented candle. Studies show the aroma of vanilla can help to reduce sugar cravings.

7. Ginger Tea Before Bed

Ginger root plays a key role in weight loss by reducing your body’s production of insulin, the hormone responsible for raising blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar is balanced, you’re less likely to snack. Ginger also helps you feel full and helps burn fat by turning up your metabolism.
