There’s Still Time. Meet Summer Weight Goals & Lose 10%!

As it does every year, summer is flying by! Before it hit, did you set any summer weight goals? Do you feel like summer is passing you by and you’ve not yet made the progress you wanted? It happens!

But, don’t despair. There’s still time. We believe you can lose 10% in the next 6 weeks and we’ve got a plan to help you do so. In fact, many people are in this same boat. They are facing elevated weight and unwanted weight gain after the last 3 years.

What would a 10% loss do for you if your current weight is too high?

Studies show that even modest weight loss helps normalize blood sugars, blood pressure and cholesterol (1). Additionally, living with unwanted extra weight can impair immune function and increase the risk of severe infection (2). But again, even modest loss can help; and it helps immediately.

There’s little doubt that the last 3 years have wreaked havoc on many people’s health, both physically and mentally. Stress, isolation, and loss of routine have made it difficult for many to stick with healthy eating and exercise. 

Now’s the time to fight back. You can take back your health and lose weight, if needed. Dedicate the next 6-8 weeks to get back on track for good!

Why Have So Many Gained Weight?

There are many reasons people have gained weight in the last 3 years. They include:

  • Carbohydrate-rich sugary foods are often eaten during high-stress or depressed moods. For those who are already fighting an unhealthy weight, elevated blood sugars, or insulin resistance, carbs and sweets are a downward spiral of fat storage and more insulin resistance. In fact, the more carbs we eat, the more fat we tend to store. The more fat we store, the more resistant our cells become to insulin causing us to store more fat. It’s easy to see how this can become a huge issue with emotional or stress-eating. Of course, our Beyond Keto program and Keto Zone Carb Assist omit refined carbs, help you metabolize glucose better, and reduce cravings for sweets for healthy weight changes!
  • Homeostasis calls to our bodies. You may have been working on lifestyle changes and weight loss on and off over the years with the same ol’ strategies. However, sometimes a sudden, different approach that challenges our bodies produces the best initial results. Why? Our bodies have a strong genetic pull towards a certain body type or body weight. Studies actually show that various neuroendocrine, metabolic, and behavioral mechanisms are set in motion to counteract weight-loss actions we take (3, 4). To break the chains and genetic pull, you can take a strong action like diving into the Beyond Keto lifestyle to get your body, and the scale, moving! 
  • Frustration can easily set in when you don’t see results. If you’ve gained weight, it can be frustrating to start all over again. You may have had momentum when life felt less stressful. Don’t give up. The Beyond Keto lifestyle produces results effectively and efficiently.

We know without a shadow of a doubt that getting to a healthy weight improves almost all areas of health including immune function, mental health, emotional health, and more.

5 Steps to Meet Summer Weight Goals & Lose 10%

How can you lose 10% of your body weight in 6 weeks? 

1. Start Keto Zone Fasting Zone to Jump Start

Fasting should be an integral part of any healthy lifestyle. In fact, studies show that intermittent fasting positively affects weight and health (5). In fact, it can support healthy cholesterol markers (6), normalize triglycerides (7), encourage healthy aging, support effective weight changes without slowing metabolism (8910), support healthy blood sugar and insulin sensitivity (1112), encourage healthy immune system responses (13), increase ketone body production (14), reduce inflammation (15), and encourage positive weight changes and reduced belly fat (16). Wow!

Ready to get started? Dr. Colbert has put together everything you need for fasting success in the 21 Day Detox and Fast Nutritional System. It includes his book Fasting Zone, Fiber Zone powder, and both Red and Green Supremefood.

As you’ll learn, an easy way to start intermittent fasting is to stop eating at 7:00 pm every night, and resume at 11:00 am every morning. Between waking up and eating at 11:00 am, you can have non-carb drinks such as coffee, coffee with Keto Zone® MCT Oil Powder and Keto Zone® Collagen Powder, tea, or drinks that utilize healthy sugar substitutes.

At 11:00 am or so, eat a Keto lunch, and then eat your Keto dinner around 6:00 pm. Between lunch and dinner add 1-2 Keto Zone snacks such as fat bombs or other healthy favorites.

But, how do you know what keto foods and meals are best?

  • I will fast from 7:00 pm to 11:00 am each day.
  • I will not eat more than 25 grams of net carbs per day.

Then, set weekly goals. These should also be in your control. They can include exercising 3 times per week, sticking to your daily eating goals each day, or journaling.

And lastly, set a long-term goal for the 6 weeks. Is your goal to lose 10 percent of your body weight? Set it and write it down.

Write all of these goals down and put the paper in a place you can read it when the going gets tough. It will keep you motivated to stay on track.
