Not Getting Results? This Is Most Likely Why.

Today’s post is a guest post by my Poliquin colleague Francine Savard of ProActif Fitness. Francine is a Canadian strength coach (among many other things), and her specialty is helping get women lean and ready for fitness comps! She is one of the world’s most highly acclaimed in this tricky area.
One of the most overlooked problems when it comes to weight loss is sleep deprivation or poor sleep. Rest is also often overlooked by some coaches and athletes as well;  you need to rest in order to recover in order to perform and this can impact all aspects of your life.
So, if you feel like you are pretty much doing everything right when it comes to your nutrition and your training (and even if you’re not!), and yet you’re still not meeting your health and fat loss goals, here are a few quick tips to blast you through those plateaus.

sleep your way to success!

  1. Try keeping a steady schedule when it comes time to go to bed
  2. A warm epsom salt bath (high in natural magnesium) is useful before bed, as is lavender scent, meditation and/or a good massage
  3. Don’t excite your neurotransmitters before going to bed; as in don’t watch a horror movie (or the news!)
  4. Don’t take long naps as these could disrupt your sleep cycle disruption (sleeping at the computer may be tempting sometimes but it’s definitely not the solution!)
  5. Try a casein shake (go to Tonic Superfoods and enter your discount code ‘bodyincredible’) with some real vanilla extract to calm your sympathetic nervous system and facilitate your serotonin production
  6. Get rid of bad electricity; unplug your cell phone, clocks, or other electronics.  Sleep in the dark – pitch dark!
  7. Exercise! Ideally not too late at night or else you will remain more alert instead of winding down
  8. No coffee, chocolate, nicotine as they can keep you awake.  Alcohol can make it appear as you unwind but it actually interrupts sleep
  9. Get sexy people! Just do it! Having sex will help you release natural hormones, releases muscle tension and boost your well-being
