10 Step Mash up of USANA Reset & Dr. Oz Total 10 Rapid Weight-loss Plan

In a previous blog post, JumpStart your Famiy’s Healthy New Year with USANA Reset Foods & Dr. Oz Total 10 Plan, I talked about how mom’s can better achieve their health goals by creating healthy eating habits for the whole family. The USANA’ Reset Program & the Dr. Oz Total 10 Rapid Weight-loss Plan are both based on the science of low glycemic eating and it’s health benefits. The USANA Foods provide healthy low glycemic fast food options to the Total 10 Rapid Weight-loss Plan…because lets face it, you are not always going to have time to cook!

Here are the 10 Steps to follow:

1. Replace your morning cup of coffee with hot lemon water to kick start your digestion process for the day.

2. For Breakfast mix up a Nutrimeal Smoothie. Studies show that a protein-rich breakfast reduces your hunger hormone, steadies your blood sugar and reduces metabolic fluctuations throughout the day.

3. For Lunch & Dinner, make meals focused on protein. The Total 10 protein bowls are delicious! Your body burns more calories when processing high protein meals, since they take more work to digest and metabolize. As an added benefit, lean muscle is built from the amino acids in protein. This helps you burn calories even while you sleep!

4. Have 2 Low Glycemic snacks per day, in between meals. (limit nuts to one servings of 22 raw, unsalted nuts, or one serving of nut butter per day)

5. Timing - eat within 45 minutes of waking up, every 2-3 hours throughout the day and stop 1 hour before you go to sleep. This keep your metabolism burning at full speed!

6. Anytime you are cravings something, enjoy unlimited amounts of Total 10 Vegetable Broth along with a 1/cup of cooked quinoa. Make a big pot ahead of time and store it in the fridge for a quick re-heat. It’s filled with detoxifying, low glycemic veggies that will make you feel fuller longer. This will as help you get in your recommended water in-take for the day! A good water guide is half your body weight in fluid ounces per day.

6. Eliminate wheat, refined sugar, artificial sweeteners, dairy, alcohol and processed foods.

7. Limit caffeine to one cup per day. Use unsweetened vanilla almond milk or try my healthy coconut coffee.

8. Don't forget to take a multi-vitamin supplement. This is the bare minimum supplement suggestion. I also take Omega’s, Extra Calcium, a mixture of Grapeseed Extract & Vit. C and Vitamin D. Even with a healthy diet, it's been proven in this day and age supplements are a requirement for getting adequate levels of nutrition to help our body function their best.

9. Journal. Use an app like myfitnesspal or an old fashioned notebook, whatever you prefer. The American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that those who Journal lose twice as much weight as those who don’t.

10. Get at least 30 minutes of physical activity per day. This is pretty much a given. Everyone knows you need to exercise to burn calories for weight-loss, but actually there is a much more important reason. Exercise tells your body to send sugar (all food is broken down into sugar) to the muscles cells to be burned as energy instead of to the fat cells to be stored as energy reserves. Side Note: if you run out of fat cells…you body just make more! Once the sugar has been re-routed, your fats cells are sent a signal to let go and be utilized as energy. So when you exercise you are re-programming your body to switch from storing fat to releasing fat as well as burning up the calories you just ate!
