Spring and summer will be here before we know it. Now is the time to drop the winter weight and start getting in shape for shorts and swimsuits.
There are always various fad diets attracting attention. Some work, some don’t. The best approach to losing weight is taking a common sense approach that combines healthy eating with physical activity. In addition to regular exercise, effective strategies for weight loss include reducing the amount of sugar, fat and salt in your diet, consuming low-calorie and sugar-free foods and beverages, and eating smaller portion sizes. A successful weight loss plan should include the following components:
1. Make a commitment and stick to it.
2. Get emotional support and find your inner motivation.
3. Set realistic goals. You should aim to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week.
4. Learn to enjoy healthier foods, such as plant-based foods, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
5. Get active and stay active.
One supplement that has been garnering attention as a weight loss aid is Chitosan. Chitosan is a basic raw ingredient, a natural fiber, derived from the shells of crustaceans, like shrimp and crabs. It acts as a barrier inside the intestines to inhibit the absorption of fat during digestion. Chitosan has been shown to be effective in treating obesity, high cholesterol, and Crohn’s disease.
NutraSense carries ChitoSense™ made exclusively with LipoSan Ultra®, a premium ingredient offering superior performance over conventional chitosan with its extremely rapid solubility in stomach acid. ChitoSense™ dissolves in 5 minutes or less, compared to an hour or more for conventional chitosan. This allows ChitoSense to bind with 3 to 5 times more soluble fat as conventional chitosan.
ChitoSense™ is both natural and safe, unlike some other diet aids and drugs that can alter or suppress natural body functions. ChitoSense™ is made exclusively from North Atlantic shrimp shell, sourced from Iceland, and is extremely low in lead and free from pesticides and antibiotic contamination that is often associated with shell produced from third world shrimp farms.
While ChitoSense does not give you license to overindulge in fatty foods, it does offer a safe accompaniment to your weight loss program.
