Suntan cream? – Check. Bags Packed?- Check. Bikini Body – Mmm.
Summer time is fast approaching and we girls turn our thoughts to wanting to look and feel amazing on holiday with a bikini body. Now is the time ladies to prepare and WinNaturally has everything you need to help you obtain that perfect beach body in terms of tips, advice as well as specific weight loss products.
- Exercise regularly – this raises your metabolic rate, decreases fatty deposits, helps to reduce cravings as well as releasing feel good endorphins and increasing oxygen to all the internal organs.
- For the best results, include varied forms of exercise in your weekly regime. Look to include some cardio exercises (running, cross training, cycling) with some strength training, (yoga/pilates and swimming).
- Make it fun! Its so much easier to stick to if you are enjoying it.
Body Sculpting Cream & Serum
You may have recently heard of Epochas – a new slimming formula massaged onto the skin
which gives a warm sensation as the serum starts to work opening pores and allowing the absorption to get where the cream needs to help the most. And available in Our Trafford Centre Store in Manchester!
Most people have no idea of what portions each of their meals should be made up of from each food group. Ourportion plates make this extremely simple and are a most effective weight loss aid. Stick to the sections of the plate for each food group. Portion control is one of the key ways to lose and maintain a healthy weight. These plates have been designed with a clean and simple approach to create a discreet addition to your dining environment.
- 97% of people in Western Society eat far too much gluten.
- This then uses up our energy stores, breaks down our immune systems and even leads to a whole host of health conditions and allergies.
- The gluten found in grains is extremely hard for the body to digest and eating foods containing gluten can actually trigger overeating as you are not absorbing the nutrients such as zinc, B vitamins, magnesium, selenium, vitamin C etc. You are getting the calories but not the energy so you crave these foods even more.
- We recommend that everyone cuts out gluten for at least one month to see the increase in weight loss and improvements in energy and mental alertness.
- Win Naturally stocks a wide range of gluten free products that are delicious and nutritious so eating gluten free could not be easier.
These are found in over 3000 low calorie foods and place a strain on the liver and actually slow down weight loss. These are toxic and must be avoided. Fantastic natural alternatives are stevia – which looks like sugar, tastes like sugar and is used like sugar but from the stevia plant and completely calorie free. Agave syrup – a natural and nutritious sweetener that does not affect glycaemic levels.
Manuka Honey – a highly nutritious honey that has amazing antibacterial properties and gives both the immune and digestive systems a boost.
Always start the day with breakfast. Your body will have gone on average ten hours without food.
Your first meal of the day kick starts the metabolism and provides your body and mind with the correct fuel for the day. The nutrients that you give your body at breakfast can determine your energy levels and calorie intake for the whole day and it is a proven fact that people who eat breakfast daily weight less than those who don’t. Good healthy options include:
Gluten free porridge topped with fresh fruit and agave syrup or honey
Gluten free muesli topped with a chopped banana
Poached egg on wholemeal gluten free bread
Organic peanut butter on wholemeal gluten free bread
Fresh fruit topped with natural or soya yoghurt and a handful of seeds
Breakfast Smoothies – check out my smoothie recipes below
Lizi’s natural organic granolas
Eliminate White Flour Based Foods Replace white flour based foods such as white bread, rice and pasta with quinoa and millet which are highly nutritious grains. Quinoa is a fine protein source too.
Cut Out The Caffeine Try to replace your regular tea and coffee with herbal teas which are extremely nutritious and cleansing to the body
PUKKA do a fantastic detox or cleanse herbal tea and green tea is proven to
boost metabolism and fat burning.
Fruit and Vegetables Have a fresh juice and perhaps a piece of fruit throughout the day and you have easily eaten more than your daily recommended amount.
Essential Fats People often make the mistake when trying to lose weight of cutting out all fats. Essential fats are vital if you wish to lose weight and are also required to turn fat to energy within the cells. Good sources of essential fats are:
Rapeseed oil – half the saturated fat of olive oil yet ten times the omega 3. It also maintains its nutrients at high temperatures which makes it perfect for cooking.
Udo’s Oil or Moroccan Argan Oil added to soups, salads, smoothies, vegetables, pasta – so nutritious and delicious
Seeds – Snack on munchy seeds daily – prevents cravings and balances blood sugar
levels – great flavours too such as honey, chilli, pumpkin and omega mix – even my children take these seed sachets to school Milled flaxseeds – I advise everyone to add at least two tablespoons of flaxseeds to their food daily. They flush fat through the intestines and are a rich source of vital vitamins, minerals and essential fats.
Our Linwoods range of milled flaxseeds are so versatile and can be added to every food or meal and come in a variety of delicious flavours
Nuts and Nut Butters – Almond, cashew, brazil and hazelnut butters are nutritious, delicious and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Add to gluten free rice cakes, gluten free bread, vegetables such as celery and cucumber or even serve with an apple for a satisfying mid afternoon snack or supper.
Supplements There are specific supplements which can assist with weight loss such as:
Biocare B Complex – this aids digestion and supports the nerves
Biocare Co Q10 – this is a vitamin like substance that is required for the conversion of fat to energy within the cells. A recent study reported that over half of obese people are deficient in Co Q10
Biocare Sucroguard – balances blood sugar levels and prevents cravings
Biocare Multi Vitamin and Mineral formula – very often cravings arise from a deficiency – a good quality multi vitamin will ensure that you are providing your body with a good base of vital vitamins and minerals
Betteryou B12 Oral Energy Spray – This apricot flavoured spray is taken once a day under the tongue. It gives energy a super boost but also boosts the metabolism and is great for memory and concentration – a WinNaturally best seller!BTW – I am quite specific about which brand of supplement to use simply because there are many well known brands out there that are expensive yet poor potency, not readily absorbed by the body and pretty much ineffective.
Win Naturally Specific Weight Loss Products Skinny Sprinkles – How Do they Work?
Take one sachet mixed with water or milk 30 minutes before each main meal to make a delicious strawberry drink.
Skinny Sprinkles contains glucomannan (Konjac) in the correct quantities recommend by EFSA for weight loss.
When you drink Skinny Sprinkles glucomannan immediately starts working in your stomach and swells forming into a gel.
The stomach reacts to this gel solution in the same way it would food, which delays gastric emptying. Gastric emptying refers to the speed at which food and drink leaves the stomach.
Food is retained in the stomach to allow digestion to take place, where as fluid leaves the stomach almost immediately. This is why a glass of water will not satisfy us in the same way as food will. It is the delay in gastric emptying that makes us feel full.
Curbs the appetite by increasing satiety
Contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels
Prebiotic action & Gluten free
Contains the equivalent of 37.5g of real strawberry
I have several customers have lost over two stones using this product and one of them refers to it as her “natural gastric band!”

Slim Rice/Slim Pasta Fat free, sugar free, carbohydrate free, gluten free and only 7 calories per serving – this range of rice and pastas are fantastic and so easy to use. Great for coeliacs, diabetics or those wanting to lose weight. The equivalent weight of regular rice or pasta would be approximately 350 calories so use daily in place or rice, pasta or potatoes.

I always like to finish off with the 80/20 rule as very often people are daunted by all the information and changes they have to make by this point. I
always stress that if you can incorporate and stick to the recommendations 80% of the time, then the remaining 20% of the time you can relax a little and treat yourself.
If you cut everything you love out 100% of the time then you are less likely to maintain it So perhaps try to stick to it six days each week then have a cheat day where you have your favourite meal or snacks or takeaway – this way you will see great results, feel fantastic and appreciate your treats even more.
