Secrets to Health and Weight loss you should know but don’t!
Tony Sfeir has been involved in the health industry over the past 23year as a competitive bodybuilder, personal trainer and now a life transformation speaker and success coach.
We caught up with Tony and got his views on struggles many Aussie women have with weight loss. “I am constantly approached by people wanting a ‘magic bullet’ for weight loss and health.” Said Tony.
The most common mistake amongst many women trying to lose weight is that they restrict the amount of food they eat and skip meals in an effort to lose weight. They usually cut back carbohydrates severely and also avoid all fats, and finally they also do many hours of cardio and other gym exercises with the hope that they will burn off the fat.
- Do you feel like no matter how many diets you go on, you lose some weight initially, but then you put it all back on?
- Have you tried what feels like every dieting fad out there, but you only seem to get fatter after each ‘diet’?
- Do you have low energy, are very lethargic and struggle to concentrate mid morning and mid afternoon?
- Do you suffer from mood swings and irritability? Does it get worse when you eat certain foods?
- Do you want to look sexy and have a tonne of energy?
What happens is that most women SLOW their Metabolism down. This is counter productive and can grind all weight loss to a complete halt.
The Goal of any health and weight loss program that will work LONG TERM, help you burn fat, increase muscle tone, have plenty of energy and most importantly be healthy – is to eat and exercise in a way that INCREASES your metabolism.
The ‘secret’ to increase your metabolism and get results in any weight loss program is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. To give you an example, one lady came to me for help having dieted and lost some weight but was ‘stuck’.
Despite her best efforts to reduce food consumption and increase exercise, she could not lose any more weight. What I did is actually cut back her exercise regime from 3 – 4 hours a day down to no more than 50mins per day.
I also INCREASED the amount of food she ate, from 2 to 3 large meals a day up to 6 properly balanced snacks. She lost 10Kgs in 12 weeks!
So what is a balanced snack? There is great confusion as to what a balanced meal actually is. The KEY in every meal is to have a small portion of good quality protein, low GI carbohydrates, vegetables and good fats.
Let’s focus on Protein as this is a well known topic for Oxygen readers, and of most interest to any woman trying to loose weight, increase bodytone, speed up her metabolism and increase fitness.
The highest concentration of Protein in whole foods is in animal foods such as meat, chicken, fish, eggs, and low fat cheese. Grains, legumes and nuts also contain some protein, but the concentration of protein is not as high as it is in animal foods. Most protein supplements available today are targeted primarily towards body builders, contain artificial sweeteners and some even use questionable ingredients. So I created my own brand, Designer Physique, 10 years ago for the health conscious consumer.
We released 100 % natural, Gluten Free, single ingredient protein powders to give people the option to choose the best protein for their dietary needs. For example, we have vege protein from carob beans; and pea protein for vegans and vegetarians containing 90% protein! These proteins are perfect to mix in fruit smoothies as they are ‘neutral flavoured’
For ten years, we refused to add flavours and sweeteners because there was nothing on the market that was 100% natural, did not have a chemical after taste, would mix easily and taste great even if mixed just in water. That was true until recently.
After many years of research and development we have released Australia’s best tasting 100% Natural Slimming Formula – Slim Whey in vanilla and chocolate flavours. This Whey protein is unique because, unlike other brands, our 100% natural sugar free sweetener tastes delicious mixed just in water and still maintains a very high protein and low carb content.
Many of our female customers love Designer Physique Slim Whey because they can mix it any time of the day to add quality protein to their diet. Consuming natural protein free from artificial additives does not cause bloating, assists with increasing metabolism, improving lean body tone and helps to curb sugar cravings.
