According to science, these 5 tips on how to get the summer body you’ve always dreamed of are the best way to do so!
Stock Up on Weight Loss Super Foods
This article on weight loss super foods can help you eat your way towards that summer body you’ve always wanted! Stocking up on foods like chia seeds, apple cider vinegar, fibre-filled foods and salmon will satisfy your hunger for longer periods of time without the belly bloat and give you a higher dose of nutrients as opposed to processed foods or refined sugar-filled treats.
Ta-ba-ter it up!
Work your way towards a summer body! An intense circuit training workout known as Tabata, is a specialized form of working out that uses the simplest of exercises, but demands high intensity for short periods of time, followed by an even shorter period of rest, and then the cycle starts all over again. What Tabata does is that by firing up your muscles quickly, it forces your muscles to work harder and as a result, burn more calories and build more muscle at the same time. Having more muscles requires more energy, so the more you build muscle, the more you’ll be using your extra calories. Not sure where to start? Try out this Tabata circuit!
Lemon Detox Water
Start your day with a warm glass of water and the juice of half a lemon mixed together. This should be the first thing you drink before consuming anything else and it helps to keep it on hand as the day goes by. Not only does lemon have amazing detoxifying properties for your skin, it also keeps your digestion in check. A healthier digestive system means your body is better able to excrete waste that it doesn’t need! Sipping on lemon water can help beat belly bloat and can also curb your appetite. Your summer body will be ready in no time!
Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind
If snacks and candies easily tempt you, stop buying them! By eliminating all forms of temptation, you’ll be less inclined to give in to your cravings. When you realize that you’d have to make an extra trip to the grocery store just to give in to your chips craving, you’ll realize how inconvenient it is and just ignore your cravings for junk food.
That being said, it’s also not healthy to fully deprive yourself. If you’re the type of individual who’s always on the go and doesn’t have time to eat full meals, pack healthy snacks like an apple, a granola bar or dark chocolate. Are you more of a salty snack person? Learn how to make kale chips or buy sunflower seeds. If you’re going to snack, snack healthy and when you’re in charge of packing your own snacks, measure them out so that they’re a healthy sized portion that can keep you going without going overboard.
