The #1 question I get as a trainer is “How do I lose my stomach?” While calorie intake and exercise are important, many people aren’t getting enough minerals from their diets to keep their body balanced. Its also hard to consume everything you need to get enough of them. Taking these 3 key supplements to lose belly fat can make your weight loss and fat loss journey easier.
Things like stress and not enough sleep can deplete our bodies. This drives the stress hormone known as cortisol up. High amounts of cortisol tell the body to store fat around the mid section. The goal is to keep your internal systems calm. A calm system that isn’t under stress will release fat more readily and allow you to go through life in a relaxed manner.
The 3 Magic Minerals to Blast Belly Fat
Zinc – 20 Mg
Magnesium – 1,200 mg
Calcium – 2,000 – 2,400 mg per day.
Trainer Tips: Make sure you take these at NIGHT. They will relax your system and make you a bit sleepy! For best result combine these with a healthy eating plan, and exercise.
What Time Should I Stop Eating??? Research shows that your body loses weight best if you stop eating within 3 hours of bed time. This allows you body to process food, gives you more restful sleep and aids in burning fat while you rest. Eating too close to bedtime inhibits hormones essential to fat loss.
If you aren’t already taking magnesium. I recommend taking a slow release magnesium at night. This will replenish your body as you sleep and help to low your cortisol level as you sleep. Start by taking 2 of the Jigsaw brand 1 -2 hours before bed. This should relax you and also help you sleep deeper. If for some reason it doesn’t then you may need to increase your amount (you’re probably depleted) or if it wakes you up a little then you need to take it earlier in the day.
If you aren’t taking these minerals already, then it’s time you start! If you are taking them, are you consuming enough of each on the list?? Personally, I would say that about 15% of the population is getting enough of these 3 minerals. The rest of us are walking around in a stressed out state and storing belly fat left and right. I don’t know about you, but it’s hard enough to shed pounds as it is. Why not make weight loss and body fat loss a little be easier with these 3 supplements to lose belly fat?!
