How to diet on Bios Life Slim

9th October 2011

Bios Life Slim is not a diet, but the basis of the SLIM programme is to eat smart, incorporate some exercise and take SLIM at least twice a day before your two largest meals.

In order to maximise your efforts, there are a few nutrition tips we should follow. These will help accelerate fat loss and provide you with life-long benefits. It also will increase your energy levels and you’ll find it easier to be more physically active.

A healthy diet is the key to a healthy body. Here are some simple things you can do to improve your diet;

Never skip breakfast

When you eat breakfast, your body feels nourished and satisfied, making you less likely to overeat the rest of the day. Start your day with a high-protein, low-carbohydrate breakfast. Protein is the nutrient that builds calorie-consuming muscle.

Avoid high GI foods

Avoid high-glycemic foods, such as sugar, pasta, white rice, and white flour. The glycemic index rates how quickly certain foods turn into glucose (a form of sugar) in the bloodstream. Choosing foods low on the glycemic index will not only help to control your weight by curbing your appetite, it will also help to control cholesterol, maintain a healthy heart and decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Eat three balanced meals

Eat three balanced meals each day. Avoid snacking and don’t eat after dinner. Eating regularly reassures your body that food is plentiful. This encourages your body to burn calories. If you skip meals, your body thinks you’re in famine and reacts by reducing your metabolism, which makes it difficult to shed weight.

Keep a food diary

Keep a food diary. Self-monitoring is one of the secrets to fat-loss. By self-monitoring we mean keeping a detailed and accurate daily record of the food and drink you have consumed. The most important reason to keep a food diary is often overlooked. It’s so easy to go through an entire day, mindlessly eating without giving a second thought to what you may be putting in your mouth. A food diary makes you stop, at least once a day, and pay attention to what you eat. The simple act of recounting your daily intake is often all that is needed to initiate change in your own eating habits, it a good way of making you accountable.

Drink more water

Stay hydrated. Make an effort to reduce your intake of unhealthy beverages, especially alcohol, high sugar cola and sodas (including diet soda!). Drinking more water will help your system remove waste and fat more efficiently.

Keep moving

You don’t need to adopt an aggressive exercise routine; just increase your physical activity throughout your day. Take the stairs instead of the lift, walk to the store, walk the dog. If you like to swim get to the local pool! Start your new routine slowly and build up to give your body time to adjust. Taking SLIM will help improve your energy levels so you should find exercising much easier!
