Losing weight is a hot topic at the moment, and with 2 in 3 British adults considered overweight or clinically obese right now¹, it’s easy to see why there’s a renewed drive for people to live healthier, more active lifestyles.
There are so many benefits to be had from shedding the pounds. Losing weight can significantly reduce your risk of developing heart disease, while reducing blood pressure and even improve sleep apnea. It can also reduce your chances of developing cancer – and it will help you look and feel great, too!¹
It all sounds wonderful, but can losing weight really be that easy? Well, it can. In fact, it can be achieved in just three easy steps, which can help you shrink your waistline and boost your health, too.
Don’t believe us? Read on to discover the three-step secret to effective weight loss…
You are what you eat
A balanced diet with fewer refined sugars and carbohydrates helps to maintain your health and can help you lose weight
We all know that a well-balanced diet is key to maintaining good health – but what does this actually look like, and how can it help us lose weight AND keep it off?
A good diet is as much about the number of calories you consume as it is about the type of foods you’re eating. On average, women should eat 2,000 calories a day, while men can have 2,500. However, to lose weight, you need to create a deficit – ideally of around 500 calories³*.
Avoiding unhealthy snacks is one step to reducing your calorie intake, but opting for certain food sources, like protein, can help nourish your body while burning calories as well.
As well as enabling your body to grow and repair itself, protein provides energy, much like carbohydrates do. Unlike carbohydrates, however, our bodies have to work harder to convert protein into energy, a process which can help us burn calories and lose weight⁴.
Good sources of protein include, meat, fish and dairy products, as well as pulses, all of which work together to create a whole host of delicious meals, including cooked dinners and fresh salads.
If you can limit the amount of refined sugars and carbohydrates you’re eating, while increasing your intake of protein and complex carbohydrates – such as vegetables and wholegrains – you’ll have all the nutrients you need, reduce your cravings for snacks and provide your body with the tools it needs to burn calories more effectively.
Time to get moving
Doing something that gets your heart pumping every day will help you burn more calories
The second step to effective weight loss is to exercise regularly.
The key benefit to regular exercise is that moving your body burns calories, which when combined with a healthy diet, contributes towards the deficit you need to maintain to lose weight. Staying active also helps keep your body strong, and can reduce your risk of developing various cancers and heart problems⁵.
If you’re not used to exercising as part of your daily routine, start by finding little ways to move more, such as choosing the stairs instead of the lift, or going for a walk during your lunch break.
What IS Okranol™, and how does it work?
Okranol™ is the functional ingredient in XLS-Medical Ultra 5 that has been clinically proven to help you lose up to five-times more weight than dieting alone². But what exactly is it – and how does it work?
Made from fibre and mucilage – a plant-based, viscous substance – Okranol™ is an insoluble ingredient which interacts with digested fats in the upper part of your stomach.
When you take your two XLS-Medical Ultra 5 capsules with a glass of water after a meal, Okranol™ is released into your stomach, where it binds with dietary fats to form large fat-fibre complexes.
These fat fibre complexes are too large to be absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and are eventually excreted from the body.
In doing this, Okranol™ helps reduce your fat and calorie intake, so you can lose weight in a healthy way².
Finding a form of physical activity that you genuinely enjoy will keep you motivated, which in turn will help you lose weight and keep it off, too. Ideally, you want to strike a balance between daily cardio and strength training so you’re getting the blood pumping while looking after your bones and muscles.
This doesn’t have to involve marathons and weight lifting. Dog walking, cycling and gardening all burn a lot of calories, which adds up to a lot over the course of a week if you do these little things every day. Doing exercise classes is also a good way to keep you motivated as you have the camaraderie of your classmates to gee you up.
Whatever physical activity works for you, doing it daily alongside a good diet and a little help from XLS-Medical Ultra 5 can help you lose weight in a healthy and effective way².
