The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are colder, the summer clothes are slowly moving back to the farthest corners of the wardrobe – there it has to stay for a while from now on. With the garments, the thought of the personal dream body is also getting further and further away. After all, who has a great desire to do outdoor sports in the rain and cold? Or even to do without all the delicious Christmas pastries? BUT: why not keep the hard-won summer figure over the winter with a few simple tricks or, at best, optimize it? Next summer is definitely coming! That’s why we’ll tell you our 3 favorite GOOD TO KNOWs that help you get through the winter slim.
1. Ensure adequate nutrient supply and avoid craving attacks!
The seduction is rarely greater than over the Christmas season – biscuits here, mulled wine there and the hearty roast there. Sweet and fatty lurks everywhere! If your body lacks nutrients, you can only resist it harder. Because nutrient deficiency conjures up cravings and an appetite for the unhealthy. If our body lacks nutrients, it responds with the command “ESSEN!”. He means vitamin D, vitamin B12 and magnesium, for example, but we understand biscuits, mulled wine and roast pork. In order to ensure the optimal supply of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and phytonutrients to your body even during the winter months, we recommend VABO-N FIERCE and/or VABO-N ESSENTIALS. The plus point: This way you also guarantee a sufficient intake of the happiness and sun hormone vitamin D – this is usually far too short with decreasing sunlight in winter!
2. Face the cold temperatures and defeat the inner pig dog!
There are some nicer ideas than stepping outside the front door at minus 2 degrees and getting active. Is it true? But why would you do it anyway? The colder temperatures boost your metabolism and it burns even more fat – so you get closer to your dream body even faster in the winter months! So, pack warm, grab your favorite music and get out into nature! The physical activity also lifts your mood and your immune system strengthens in the fresh air! So the step to the door pays off twice and three times!
3. Lose weight without starvation!
Even with very small changes in the choice of your winter dishes and ingredients, you can reduce the calorie intake: you can easily replace dumplings with potatoes, eat goose without the oily skin, replace the duck with chicken and use sauces instead of cream milk. With the side dishes you can easily fall back on seasonal vegetables more often. Both as raw food and in the steamed state, it has little carbohydrates, no fat and valuable nutrients. In addition, you can eat tons of it in good conscience and stay fed up for a long time. Small tip also for baking Christmas biscuits: Just use half the butter and replace the rest with apple sauce. This means that you use less fat and the biscuits get a smooth consistency and retain their moisture. With the use of wholemeal flour instead of white flour, you can also create an even healthier alternative!
