It can be daunting when your list of new year’s resolutions is as long as your holiday to-do list. However, it is important to remember that the new year doesn't have to be a catalyst for dramatic changes. It’s a time for you to reflect on your past year’s behavior and make reasonable promises to yourself leading you toward a more positive lifestyle. By making your resolutions realistic, there is a greater chance that you will keep them throughout the year.
As you might guess, the number one resolution made every year is to go on a diet and start exercising to lose weight. But did you know that there are three other factors that significantly influence your ability to lose weight? They include your stress level, the amount of restful sleep you get each night, and the amount of antioxidants you consume daily.
A stressful lifestyle hinders weight loss by increasing your cravings for carbohydrates and junk food. In addition, hormones secreted due to stress, like cortisol, increase fat storage in our bodies. The most common stresses in life include financial instability, job dissatisfaction and marital/family issues. In order to help your body counteract the effect of stress, you can take Kyäni Sunrise. It provides specific vitamins and botanicals which help the body adapt to stress. Specifically, it provides B Vitamins and adaptogens like ashwagandha and panax ginseng root.
Sleep deprivation hinders weight loss by upsetting your hormonal balance. Specifically it decreases leptin, which is a hormone that makes you feel full after eating. This results in overeating. To help you get the best possible sleep, you can take Kyäni Sunset, which provides Omega 3s, along with a full spectrum of E vitamins, including tocotrienols.
A lack of antioxidants in the diet also hinders weight loss. As a matter of fact, it contributes to weight gain. Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals. Free radicals can damage the cells in the body that tell you you’re full. So if there aren’t enough antioxidants in the diet or supplements, you may overeat, resulting in weight gain. Kyäni Sunrise can help counter this. It’s loaded with antioxidants from superfoods, specifically the Wild Alaskan Blueberry, maqui berry, amla berry, acai berry, and wolfberry.
Once these lifestyle factors are addressed and corrected, you are much more likely to succeed as you set goals to moderate your diet and increase your physical activity. The last step is to increase the amount of Nitric Oxide your body produces, because Nitric Oxide helps the cells in the body to burn fat. It does this by improving the function of mitochondria, which are the powerhouses of the cell, generating energy for day-to-day living. Nitric Oxide, as a signaling molecule, helps the mitochondria to burn more fat, both dietary and stored. Kyäni Nitro Xtreme and Nitro FX generate Nitric Oxide in the body, which further helps to reduce body fat and gain lean muscle mass.
In conclusion, the three factors that need to be addressed to enable effective weight loss in 2017 are stress management, sleep quality, and increased daily intake of antioxidants. Increasing the body’s Nitric Oxide production further assists this process.
