Two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions go hand in hand: losing weight and getting fit. If you are not overweight, getting fit means integrating moderate physical activity into your lifestyle on a regular basis: at least 30 minutes daily.
You might ask, “What exactly is moderate physical activity?” You may be surprised that it includes badminton, cutting grass with a power mower, heavy cleaning your home, cycling or walking briskly.
If you are overweight, you will want to be even more active. The more you do, the more health benefits, especially in regard to burning off more calories than you take in daily.
The easiest way to reduce your caloric intake without becoming a mathematician is to look at what you usually eat and shift toward a primarily whole-food, plant-based diet. That means saying no to processed foods, fried foods, fast foods, packaged snacks, etc.
Eating a variety of mostly plant-based foods gives you the nutrients your body needs, including the protein and fiber that give you a feeling of fullness between meals. This makes snacking in between less likely, so you reduce your caloric intake daily.
Adding physical activity to this nutritious move gives you the main moves for successful weight loss.
When you incorporate some carefully chosen weight-loss supplements into your “losing” goal, you AIM even further in the direction of success. When The AIM Companies™ put together a pack of products that promotes the disappearance of pounds, the result was plant-based protein, fiber, minerals and herbs that make up the Weight Loss Pack: ProPeas, Fit ’n Fiber and GlucoChrom.
ProPeas for Supplemental Protein
One of the mistakes made when trying to lose weight is to cut down on protein intake. Healthy sources such as ProPeas actually assist with weight loss by boosting your metabolic rate, reducing your appetite and increasing your energy, endurance and lean muscle mass.
Fitting healthily into a plant-based food intake, AIM chose pea protein and called the supplement ProPeas. Unlike animal sources, vegetable protein promotes a healthy pH balance in your body.
Each serving of ProPeas gives you 12 grams of supplemental protein that takes around four hours to digest, keeping hunger pangs away. And there are only 60 calories in each 16-gram scoop.
Don’t forget that your body burns more calories to digest protein than carbohydrates or sugars. Another good reason why protein intake helps with weight loss.
Fit ’n Fiber for Supplemental Fiber
Make sure you fit in fiber when you approach your individual program to lose weight. Wholesome, plant-based foods provide a great source of this essential carbohydrate. Fit ’n Fiber increases your intake with 10 grams of supplemental fiber per serving.
Like protein, fiber has a stomach-filling aspect that contributes to feeling satiated for longer periods of time, so you are less likely to feel hungry between meals. And fiber contains few calories, so you are feeling full without filling up on calories. One serving of Fit ’n Fiber contains only 10 calories.
Beyond supporting weight loss, the benefits of fiber include cleansing and detoxifying the body, regulating blood sugar and cholesterol, maintaining cardiovascular health and promoting bacterial balance. Fit ’n Fiber delivers 8 grams of prebiotic fiber that contributes to bacterial balance by providing food for the good bacteria that are essential for good health.
GlucoChrom for Chromium and More
The addition of GlucoChrom in the Weight Loss Pack delivers chromium as an important cofactor of insulin. Normal levels of insulin assist the breakdown of stored fats and sugar, which makes weight loss possible.
Chromium is integral in helping insulin access cell membranes, allowing glucose to enter the cells where it can be utilized by the body. The chromium in GlucoChrom is derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, which provides an easily absorbed form of this essential trace mineral.
Along with chromium, GlucoChrom provides 3 other ingredients that support weight loss:
Vanadium — an essential trace mineral required for cellular metabolism
Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf — an herb that helps reduce cravings for sweets
Bitter Melon Fruit — an herb that boosts activity of the enzymes that convert glucose into glycogen
