30 weight loss tips in 30 days – #14 Beetroot powder

Welcome to the NEW Healthista series featuring 30 days of weight loss tips with Nutritionist Rick Hay. Discover how beetroot can help with energy for fitness

For those who exercise beetroot powder can really help with performance and energy production in the body, helping you stick to your fitness goals. Studies have shown it can improve running performance, because it helps the production of nitric oxide in the body which contributes to energy production.  Beetroot contains phytonutrients known as betalains — betanin and vulgaxanthin — which are effective in reducing inflammation and supplying the body with antioxidants. Betalains also support detoxification, which may contribute to weight loss.

Try a spoonful in your morning smoothie of Golden Greens Organic Beetroot Powder

For performance enhancing benefits and metabolism boosting, try taking a teaspoon of Healthista’s Body Food £18.95, which contains beetroot powder along with yerba mate and matcha green tea for performance and one teaspoon of Healthista’s Glow Food £18.95 full of antioxidants and skin-friendly omega3s in a shaker bottle of water and sip before and during exercise for the ultimate gym fuel.

Rick Hay says: ‘Beetroot might sound like an odd choice when I’m talking about weight loss and ingredients to help you lose weight, but in fact it’s significant and it can help with energy production and also to detox through the liver. It promotes nitric oxide production in the body, that gives you a burst of energy. If you don’t have energy you’re less likely to stick to your fitness regime and then the weight is harder to come off. It also contains vital nutrients called betalains which help remove toxins from the liver. You’ve probably heard me go on and on about the need for a clean liver in order to have a good functioning gallbladder and therefore a functioning fat metabolism. You can have it as a juice if you want or as a powder – take a teaspoon in some water or juice once or twice a day, ideally before exercise, mid-morning or mid-afternoon.’

Available for £9.95 for 200g, from the Healthista shop
