Summer is just around the corner! I am looking forward to this season because it’s the time when I can appreciate more what I’ve worked for all year long. Staying fit is great for our health, and it also boosts our self-confidence. Flaunting our beach-ready bodies is not boasting. It’s more actually of being proud of what we’ve achieved.
For those who didn’t have much time preparing for summer, here are some tips which can help you get that beach body for all your summer trips.
Protein Mornings– protein meals are heavy in the stomach which can easily make you feel full. It also promotes muscle formation. It burns fats and it can make you gain more muscles if you eat up to the right amount. You are appetite can be suppressed for the whole day if you will start with protein rice meals.
Fiber Rich Meals– Your metabolism will be faster if you will eat this kind of meals. Fiber is a great component for digestion and it will help you distribute the nutrients from the food that you eat all throughout your body and not just your tummy.
Cut the salt, carbs, and alcohol– As we know, eating too much of everything is not healthy. So you’ll be needing to stay away from your favorite chips, unlimited rice, and binge drinking! All these kinds of food promote weight gain.
- Salt- can reduce water retention. Your body needs water to function properly, and your stomach to digest thoroughly. With too much salt in your body, your digestive system and other parts of your body will be having a hard time doing their tasks.
- Carbohydrates- eating carbs is important because it gives us energy. However, eating too many carbs is not good because too much consuming of energy can add up to your weight.
- Alcohol- this causes bloating. You wouldn’t want to walk on your bikini having your beer belly right? So keep yourself away from the bar if you want to look fab in the summer. Besides, there are a lot more other health issues that you might be facing if you drink too much of this.
Stretch, Crunch, and Run- make your muscles firm and sweat away those unnecessary fats! As you exercise, you burn the fats in your body and they are excreted through sweat. Keeping the heat up in your body by doing these activities can make your metabolism rate faster. At the same time, your muscles are being shaped up.
Water – Water is important for our body. Your body can not function if you are not taking enough water. It is important for hydration and as well as cleansing the system. Drink as much as you can.
These are just some last minute steps that you can do. But it is important to know that having a fit and healthy body is not a one month task. You’ll be needing a commitment to your body to be successful in maintaining it to its best.
Eating the right kind of food is important because it’s where all the nutrients that your body needs to function come from. With too much junk food, less water and exercise, your body will not function well, thus, it will not look at its best as you want it to be.
So eat right, stay bright and light!
