3 Tips For Losing Fat

Step #1: Boost Your Metabolism With L-Carnitine

L-carnitine works with the mitochondria of each cell to break down and eliminate fat.

Basically it transports energy into your cells’ mitochondria (energy bubbles)…

The mitochondria acts as engines in your cells, burning these fats to create usable energy (2)

Not only does it help clear up and break down fats from the body, but it also protects the liver against powerful toxins.

And at least one study has shown that if you get 1 gram of L-carnitine a day…

that’s enough to burn off 10 pounds in 12 weeks when combined with a healthy low-carb eating plan.

One of the best sources of L-carnitine is lamb.

Step #2: Reduce Body Fat With Chromium

Here’s where things get interesting…

Chromium is a critical mineral that most people are deficient in.

And it acts as a transport nutrient, which means it enables insulin to work more quickly and efficiently.

This means you’ll store less fat and use more calories to build lean muscle tissue…

Which also boosts your metabolism.

A study in Current Therapeutic Research shows that people who took a chromium supplement lost, on average, 6.2 pounds of body fat without the loss of any lean muscle (3).

Because far too many of them are filled with harmful chemicals and fillers.

Instead, opt for green beans cooked in grass-fed butter to get your chromium AND your fat-melting CLA needs met.

Simply adding this to your dinner 2-3 times a week can make a huge difference to your waistline.

Step #3: Speed Up Fat Burn With Betaine

Ready to turn things up a notch?

Because while you can start seeing awesome results by simply following Steps 1 and 2…

Step #3 is where we crank this into high gear.

And to do that, we start eating more betaine-rich foods.

Here’s why…

Betaine is a natural occurring amino acid compound that protects and enhances the function of internal organs in the body.

What’s more is that it also helps with digestive function, heart health, liver detoxification, and fat loss

If you don’t have enough HCL in your stomach, you may experience digestive dysfunction which makes it easier to store fat.

However, betaine increases the acid in your stomach, which most people are lacking after turning 50.

So the more betaine you can add to your diet…

The more potent your stomach acid will be..

Which means you’ll be able to break down and absorb the foods you eat…

Instead of storing them as fat.

Thanksgiving Foods That Are Not Good For Pets

https://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/pets-animals/6-thanksgiving-foods-that-are-bad-for-cats-and-dogs/ar-BBX3zjg?ocid=spartandhp

  • Stuffing: Thanksgiving dressing is often made with onions, scallions or garlic. These ingredients are extremly toxic for pets and can cause life-threatening anemia. This is the destruction of red blood cells.
  • Ham: Ham and other pork products can cause pancreatitis, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Pork is also high in fat, which can lead to obesity in pets. Even a small amount of ham can contribute a very large amount of calories to a small dog or catโ€™s diet.
  • Turkey Bones: Bones can cause severe indigestion in dogs and cats, potentially causing vomiting and obstructing the bowel. Bones may also splinter and cause damage to the inside of the stomach and intestines. In some cases, turkey bones may even puncture through the stomach and cause a potentially fatal abdominal infection.
  • Mashed Potatoes: While potatoes are safe for pets to eat, mashed potatoes usually contain butter and milk, which can cause diarrhea in lactose intolerant pets. Additionally, some recipes call for onion powder or garlic, which are very toxic to pets.
  • Salads with Grapes/Raisins: There are many salads served at Thanksgiving that include grapes or raisins as an ingredient, from fruit salad, to waldorf salad, to ambrosia. However, grapes and raisins are very virulent and potentially deadly. Grapes can cause severe, irreversible and sometimes fatal kidney failure in dogs. Be sure to keep all dishes that include grapes and raisins away from pets.
  • Desserts: While pumpkin pie is the most famous Thanksgiving dessert (canned pumpkin also has many pet health benefits), many people offer a variety of chocolate desserts at Thanksgiving. Chocolate is toxic to dogs and cats, yet dogs love the smell and taste of it. The darker the chocolate, the more toxic it is. Keep all chocolate desserts out of the reach of pets to prevent an emergency trip to the veterinarian.

If your pets ingest any of these foods this Thanksgiving, be sure to call your veterinarian immediately.

Dumbbell Exercise

Dumbbell Chest Press (for chest and triceps)

A Dumbbell Workout You Can Do Entirely on the Floor

Lie on your back, holding your dumbbells, and bring the soles of your feet to the floor, knees pointing up. Bend your elbows so your weights stack over your wrists, then bring your elbows to a 45-degree angleโ€”your arms should look like an arrow.

Press your entire back into the mat and exhale as you push the weights up over your chest. (Try not to let them bang together!) Inhale as you release back down to the floor, then reset and repeat. Pro tip: If youโ€™re pressing heavier weights, pick up your dumbbells before lying back, as itโ€™s easier on your shoulder joints. Repeat for 10-15 reps or 45 seconds.
