Do you want a nice, toned body for the summer? Are you getting ready to strut your stuff at a pool or at the beach? With a little work, exercise, and discipline, a hot body can be all yours.
1 Eat plenty of healthy foods.
Avoid junk food like chips, cakes, pizzas, and ice cream. Your body will thank you. Eat foods high in protein and fiber, and remember to opt for smaller portions. Shoot for 3-4 small meals per day. Fruits and, more importantly, vegetables will keep you from gaining the same gut you are losing doing all that cardio. Go for vegetables that have lots of color in them: beets, carrots, kale, tomatoes, spinach and broccoli. Combine them in a salad or eat them with hummus if you don’t have a taste for them. Don’t starve yourself. Starving yourself will actually hurt your chances of losing weight, because your metabolism slows when it doesn’t get food. (It’s preparing to save more energy.) So eat regular, small portions if you want to lose that extra weight.
2 Drink water instead of juice or soda,
Even if it’s diet. Although diet soda offers a “zero” calorie alternative to regular soda, it still interferes with weight loss. If you’re serious about getting that body looking in tip-top shape, don’t drink anything but water. Substituting water for every other drink will drastically lower your caloric intake. If you don’t know how to keep up with your water uptake, you should keep a water bottle with you and drink whenever you are thirsty. It may improve your complexion as well. Cut alcohol out of your diet. This can be a tough one, especially if you’re used to drinking that glass of red wine after you come home from work. Alcohol has lots of calories in it, especially those cosmos. So, even though a glass of wine may be healthy for you for other reasons, it’s not the greatest way to slim down..
3 Get more sleep
Sleep is the third part of the puzzle for many looking to lose weight. Many women (and men) go obsessively to the gym, eat like vegetarian monks, and still don’t see a reduction in their waist size. Getting a good night’s sleep is an important part of shedding those extra pounds, so be sure you are getting 7-9 hours of sleep. Sleep deprivation hurts your ability to lose weight. This because your body produces the glucose and insulin levels of some diabetics when you don’t sleep! So depriving yourself of sleep is a no-no for healthy weight loss. Less sleep kills your motivation to workout and eat well. We’ve all been there: It’s the end of a stressful day at work, we’re tired, and we have no energy to do the things we told ourselves we’d do at the beginning of the day. Getting a good night’s rest helps keep you energized and motivated, so that when it comes time to hop on the treadmill, you’ll have the motivation to push through.
