5 Tips to Burn Fat
To drop weight and fat we need to see what's up with our metabolism, and unfortunately many of us are wrecking it by trying to lose weight quickly and eating foods that are harming it.
Here are 3 mistakes we may be making and some tips to set us up for success.
Mistake #1 - Focusing on Calories instead of Hormones
The calorie model is outdated but still so many peeps are counting calories.
What is more important is to pay attention to the foods you are eating and how they affect your hormones which will determine whether you store or release fat.
Tip #1 >> Stabilize your blood sugars by choosing whole food carbohydrates and adding in healthy proteins and fats. This will help to balance your blood sugars, keep insulin levels down and improve your ability to burn fat.
Tip #2 >> Reduce your Toxic Load. Poor fat metabolism is the accumulation of toxins in the body.
What you put on your skin, hair, nails, what you drink from and clean your house with are all common culprits.
Check out the EWG's Cosmetic Database to see the switches you can make.
The great thing about skin care, hair care and cleaning products is that you run out, so ditch and switch to safer products.
I clean my house mostly with vinegar or thieves and I use Beautycounter for my skin and hair care.
Mistake #2 - Missing out on Micronutrients
Carbs, fats and proteins are only part of our food.
There are 100,000's of micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, fatty acids etc). that our bodies need daily to preform optimally.
Micronutrients are used every minute of every day to keep us energized, produce enzymes & hormones and prevent deficiencies which can result in mental impairment, poor digestion, thyroid issues, bone loss, aging, poor metabolism etc.
Any of those sound familiar??
Tip #1 >> Eat the rainbow each and every day. We typically eat the same 5, so mix it up. Here is what I added to my day to boost my micronutrients!!
Tip #2 >> Eat mineral rich foods which include sea vegetables, wild-caught fish, bone broth and leafy greens.
Without adequate mineral intake the body will not be equipped for proper energy production, building the blood, bone formation, maintaining, optimal hormone levels, and a lot more.
Mistake #3: Consuming too Many Anti-Nutrients
These foods are literally sucking the life out of us!!! And they are lining the grocery shelves more and more each day.
And the issue is that they are producing so much inflammation that this is causing havoc on our health - and when we are inflammed the body will resist long term weight loss.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle with simple shifts instead of dieting will teach us how to flood our bodies with what it needs and get rid of what is no longer servings us. See the video below about SHRED10 from Dr. Mitra Ray. We shred every month, so please join us.
Anti-nutrients include toxins (artificial colourings/sweeteners, pesticides, anti-biotics,etc), sugar, etc.
Tip #1 >> Limit your exposure to anti-nutrients. Swap out the processed foods for whole foods.
Choose organic when possible - and don't worry about this one until you start getting the processed foods out of your diet.
Get rid of processed vegetable oils and take omegas as our bodies do not make them, see what I use here.

I’m a wife and mum, personal trainer, fitness/pilates instructor, Behaviour Change Specialist, Nutrition Coach, Pain-Free Movement Specialist, author of Cookie Dough in the Dark, creator of Vibrant Living Membership - your ONE STOP shop for movement + nutrition + mindset..... among many other things!! I’ve had many issues dealing with the scale going up and down, a muffin top that wouldn’t disappear, emotional eating binges that did not involve carrots and struggling with insecurity! Through all of this I just wanted to feel normal. I wanted to be happy like everyone else!
In my teens and 20’s I wanted the quick fixes, the magic pills, the fairy dust – whatever I could get my hands on to make me a lean, happy and sexy machine. Yup, found out it doesn’t exist. I wanted to cry!! I was so frustrated. I felt like I was going around and around until I was completely exhausted and back at the starting point. And when I talk with other women they feel that way too. So, I delved further into holistic health – the emotional, mental and physical – wrote a book, and have been in this field for many years helping 1000’s of women.
I discovered that by being smarter, not working harder, I could get the results I wanted and also for my clients. It started with some really small shifts that I will share with you over time. With this new knowledge, I felt ALIVE, VIBRANT and COMFORTABLE in my own skin. And my clients felt this way too!
My mission is to continue to help women step into the body they WANT. To feel confident & sexy, in control of their food choices and have their clothes fit just as they should while having the energy to live a VIBRANT life.
