Winter is here. With the colder weather and comfort food, it is easy to fall out of routine and find yourself straying away from your typical flow. The days are shorter so there is a greater tendency to stay indoors and be less active, especially since self-isolation. Before you get too far into the slump of winter, adjust your approach and hit the reset button!
Be Fit Food recommends undertaking one to two weeks of the Be Rapid meal program every three to four months for a metabolism reset. This is not only the perfect approach for staying on track and starting each season as the healthiest version of yourself, but it also allows you to reset your metabolism after a period of indulgence such as Easter or the recent events of COVID-19 and isolation.
Cycling Be Rapid with your regular diet for two weeks each season can help you to lose a couple of quick kilograms, as well as increase insulin sensitivity and stabilise blood sugar levels. It can improve metabolic markers and cardiovascular risk factors such as your blood fat profile, including cholesterol levels.
Winter can also bring the increased risk of coughs, head colds and the flu. Eating nutritious foods can help to keep a strong immune system. Be Fit Food meals contain food from each of the five food groups and contain four to 12 vegetables in each serve. This provides you with antioxidants and essential micronutrients to help you to maintain optimal health throughout winter.
