If you've been starving yourself in the hopes of losing weight but still getting no results, chances are you're doing it wrong. Let's face it – it can be very difficult to keep track of a diet plan, not to mention the temptation involved in seeing a scrumptious meal that is unfortunately packaged with calories. But there's a way for you to control that appetite but still get to enjoy your food and feel full at the end. This is made possible by wheatgrass.
The reason why wheatgrass is a great supplement to a diet plan is because it makes you feel full between meals and snacks. There are so many other benefits to including this "green superfood" into your diet. These benefits include but are not limited to:
* Gives you a boost of energy and a more restful sleep.
* Improves clarity of mind and calms nerves.
* Skin becomes clearer and healthier.
* Digestion and bowel movements are greatly improved.
* Blood pressure and blood sugar levels become more stable.
* Helps in weight loss and weight maintenance.
* Hair and nails become stronger and healthier.
* Lessened instances of acid reflux.
Wheatgrass products come in as a juice drink or as a supplement (capsule, pill, etc.). If you do not like the taste of the juice drink, you can add other fruit or vegetable juices. It is recommended that the product is consumed an hour before every meal. That way, your body is able to absorb all the nutrients, minerals, amino acids, and vitamins contained in it.
You'll notice that you feel more energized within 20 minutes after drinking the juice or taking the supplement. A lot of people use these products as a primary energy booster in order to improve performance in physical activities. The time interval before the energy boost can vary from person to person, though. The time interval depends on a person's diet or any medication he or she may be taking.
You'll be glad to know that most juice drinks or supplements are 100% organic. The wheatgrass product should have used organic seeds in organic soil. An organic product gives an assurance that no toxins are involved. To ensure that you're consuming an organic product, take the time to check the label for an USDA Organic Seal.
Using wheatgrass products may have some mild side-effects. Since toxins are being flushed out from the bloodstream, you may experience mild headaches and increased bowel movements. These side-effects usually occur during the first week of using the products but should subside and leave in the succeeding weeks.
