7 ways to lose weight this summer
There are two times of the year when you will hear most about the fitness, diet and weight loss. One is the New year and the second is summer. As summer is just around the corner and you are looking to shed fat that you have just gained during your winter hibernation. Summer is the best time to lose your weight and to look good in a swimsuit. We will list some of the ways that can help you in achieving your desired body during this summer.
Hit the Gym:
First thing you need to do is to make up your mind to get moving. Most of the people fail to exercise due to lack of motivation. This is not going to help you in losing weight. You don’t have to train insane in the gym but to start with just fat burning activities. This will help you to achieve your desired toned body quickly. Do some fun outdoor activities like hiking with your dog and paddleboarding. You can also incorporate some strength training in your outdoor fun. The more muscle you have the fat you will burn just at your basal metabolic rate. You don't have to have a gym membership to be fit. Get out side and incorporate some body weight exercises into your daily dog walk like squats or push ups. Super Easy! You gotta start somewhere. Don't let perfectionism stop you from even starting.
Choose your drink wisely:
Be conscientious about what are you having with your drinks. You need to remain hydrated during summer, but sport drinks with lots of sugar can contain many calories that can push you away from your fitness goals. You have to ditch your sweet drinks such as soda, energy drinks and sweet coffee and tea. Cutting out these sweet drinks can result in few pounds of weight loss. But do remain hydrated throughout the day. Drink 8 glass of water, and you will eliminate the need of these sweet drinks.
Cut out Alcohol Intake:
Alcohol also contains sugar, and messes with your insulin management which can result in weight gain. So, if you are looking to lose some weight, you need to have a break from alcohol. There is no nutritional benefit in drinking alcohol, and if it is taking you away from your healthy goal, then it is better to leave it.
Most of the people that are losing weight stop eating properly or cut out too much food intake which is a wrong approach. You don’t need to starve yourself. This will make you weak rather than help you lose weight. If you are looking to burn some calories this summer, you need to eat well. Eat Clean. Ditch processed foods. Eat the rainbow daily.
Burn calories in fun way:
Summer can get you with its hot weather, so you need to do add such activities in your routine that you enjoy the most. For example, you can seek out some water fun, whether it is the beach, lake or river . This way you can turn your daily routine into a workout.
Don’t compromise on your sleep. As you are working out your body in the day time, you need to give it proper rest. In summer people often feel a bit lazy. Proper sleep will help you to feel balanced and refreshed all day. Plus, when we are tired we often reach for junk food.
Most of the people resist changing their habits. If you continue with your winter routine, you are not going to have any change in summer. Adopt these positive and healthy changes quickly to make your journey productive and fun!
