It’s time for a mini Q&A, where we answer two questions we are frequently asked. As long as you’ve got questions, we’ll keep posting a mini Q&A series. Here are today’s burning questions with our answers and suggestions.
“Why am I tired all the time?"
Although there are many reasons you could be tired, you may not be getting restful sleep. Sleep is the cornerstone of feeling and looking your best. Your sleep is linked to nearly every aspect of your health, including your capacity to make decisions, your appetite control, and your ability to fight off disease. Most people need an average of 7.5 hours of restful sleep for your body to perform at its best.
If sleep is elusive or you don’t wake up feeling rested, here are a few things you can try to improve your quality of sleep.
Cut the caffeine. You don’t necessarily have to cut it entirely, but stop consuming caffeine five hours before your bedtime so that it’s out of your system in time for sleep.
Turn off devices. One hour before bedtime, begin a relaxation routine. Some of our favorite ideas include dimming the lights, running a hot bath, and reading a book.
Avoid napping. The cycle of not getting enough rest, napping, and then not being tired at bedtime can be a vicious cycle. No matter how tired you may feel during the day, cut out naps. Instead, go for a walk or do something that will boost your adrenaline.
Quiet yourself. Anxiety and stress is a huge epidemic for the American population. Take moments throughout your day to meditate, breathe deeply, and sit in silence. (Without your phone in your hand, by the way.) The more you can get control of your emotions, the more prepared your brain will be to rest.
Upgrade your mattress and pillows. It’s hard to sleep when you can’t get comfortable. You need a mattress that provides support and reduces aches and pains. Also, your pillow should provide adequate neck support.
Exercise more. Exercise has several health benefits, including stress elimination and more restful sleep. If we move more throughout the day, we are more likely to drift into sleep at night.
Start building your medical profile. 100% pure, pharmaceutical-grade peptides can increase the natural production of human growth hormone (HGH), which is secreted from the pituitary gland. Peptide therapy has several other positive effects, one of which is improving the quality of sleep. Other benefits include increasing youthful stamina, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, promoting hair growth, and heightening sexual performance. All big wins!
There can be a range of health concerns that disrupt sleep or cause fatigue, so it’s always best to have a conversation with your doctor about your health goals and how you’re feeling.
“Why can I not stop eating?”
One of the familiar struggles we hear from people is how frustrated they have felt in the past with eating, diets, and portion control. They have tried to eat healthier, but counting calories and picking the right foods was overwhelming. What’s worse, each diet seemed to contradict the other.
Portion control doesn’t have to be an enormous challenge. With a few adjustments and a lot of support, you achieve a new lifestyle.
Let it shine. Did you know restaurants use dim lighting because it affects how much we eat? We are more likely to overeat in dim lighting, so let the sun shine on your food and keep those lights bright!
Ditch the dinner plate. Using smaller plates can limit your portions because we have a psychological tendency to eat everything that is in front of us, whether we need it or not. Just switching from a 12” to a 9” plate can change your serving sizes.
Packaging isn’t a plate. Never eat right out of the package. Put all your food on a plate where you can see exactly what you’re eating. This suggestion includes takeout foods or trips to the drive-through. Which means, unless you have a plate in your car—no eating in the car!
Put it away. If you eat in the proximity to bigger servings or other food, you will end up reaching for the extra bites or second helpings. Plate your food and immediately put everything away. Then, go sit down—preferably at the table and not in front of the TV.
Drink more water. Often people confuse hunger and thirst. When you drink eight or more glasses of water a day, you will likely find that your appetite is less hard-hitting, making it easier to control your portions.
Consider building your medical profile. With 100% pure, prescription HCG, you’ll lose weight, feel great, and gain control of your eating habits. The weight you lose when you combine HCG with a specific, low-calorie eating plan, comes from your body using your fat stores as its energy source, which leaves your lean muscle mass untouched and decreases your appetite.
Our answers to your questions should never be mistaken as medical advice. If you feel you have a genuine medical concern about your health or health habits, please contact your doctor and discuss how you’re feeling. We want you to look and feel your best!
