Slimming Journey: 4 Proven Ways To Reduce Your Weight

Undoubtedly, trying to lose weight can be frustrating, especially when results don’t seem to show, no matter how hard you try. Imagine hitting the gym 7 days a week only to see little to no results -- it can be incredibly tempting to simply throw in the towel and give up entirely.

Just do a quick search on the Internet, and you’ll find hundreds of techniques that promise drastic results in a matter of days. Most of the time, these strategies are ineffective, unhealthy and the culprits behind your frustrations due to the lack of results. So, the question lies – how can you lose weight?

To help you out, we have compiled a list of 4 effective methods that actually do have an impact on weight management. If you’d like to finally look and feel your best, keep on reading!

1. Try intermittent fasting
If you aren’t a fan of changing up your diet or tracking your calorie intake, intermittent fasting is the one for you! Intermittent fasting involves taking regular, brief fasts and eating only within a shorter time frame during the day. For the most part, you can eat whatever you’d like. Of course, eating unhealthy processed foods daily will not be the best, but at least you don’t have to restrict yourself to salads 24/7!

According to studies, short-term intermittent fasting is effective in weight loss. The most common intermittent fasting method is the 16/8 method – where an individual eats only during an 8-hour window (for example, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

2. Ensure you get enough shut-eye
Numerous studies have demonstrated that receiving less than 6 to 7 hours of sleep per night is linked to an increased risk of obesity. According to research, the body’s metabolism slows down when people do not get enough sleep. When metabolism is less efficient, unused energy may be stored as fat by the body. Additionally, lack of sleep can cause levels of the chemicals cortisol and insulin to rise, which encourages fat storage.

3. Keep your stress levels low
As part of the body’s fight-or-flight reaction, stress causes the release of hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. Chronic stress can cause cortisol to stay in the body for a long period of time, increasing hunger and possibly leading to binge-eating.

Cortisol alerts the body that it needs to replenish its nutritional reserves with carbohydrates. After that, insulin delivers the blood sugar from carbohydrates to the muscles and brain. The body will retain this sugar as fat if it is not used during a person’s fight or flight response.

4. Give slimming detoxification a go
What if we told you that you could achieve a toned and slim figure with little to no effort? You’re probably thinking to yourself, how is that even possible?

Introducing VANILLA Taste Of Beauty’s Slimming Detoxification treatment programme – a slimming treatment that targets water retention in the body and is a fan-favourite amongst customers.

It’s unlikely that you have gained weight over the past day or two due to fat. When you take in more calories than you burn off, you progressively accumulate weight as fat. However, if your belly, ankles, and fingers are where the weight is concentrated, it’s likely due to water retention!

Your body’s ability to detoxify itself and keep a healthy weight requires a functioning lymphatic system. A crucial component of our immune system, the lymphatic system aids in the removal of toxins, waste, and other unwanted substances from our bodies.

This slimming detoxification treatment utilises heat from a thermal blanket to get rid of excess water, waste fluids and harmful toxins from the body. This will assist in restoring balance and increasing the effectiveness of your body’s natural drainage system, which improves circulation and helps with weight loss.

Remember that losing weight is not an easy process and that you are not alone if you’re having trouble with this element of your life. Many people find it difficult to follow a regular diet or exercise routine in order to attain their goals.

If none of your diets and workout regimes seem to be working, consider giving VANILLA Taste Of Beauty’s Slimming Detoxification treatment a try.
