Shape Up Before Summer Gets Here
4 tips to help propel your weight loss for swim suit weather
Now that the weather is starting to finally warm up a bit our thoughts turn to beaches and the scantly clad. Does this bring you feelings of horror and body consciousness? If so, here are some tips to help guide you as you head into summer:
Eat at least two servings of low sugar fruit fruit and three or more servings of vegetables a day, and eat the actual fruit and vegetables rather than their fiberless juices, which are higher in calories.
Make at least 90% of your grains whole grains. You'll get more fiber, vitamins E and B6, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium, and the complex carbohydrates will help you lose weight.
Eat three meals and two or three snacks a day. Generally, eat every 3-4 hours so you don't become overly hungry, and to sustain your metabolism. Abide by the mantra Eat Less More Often.
Say no to sugar-sweetened drinks. Choose drinks that have low or no calories. Water is a great choice, and important for weight loss. Studies have shown that often when people feel hungry they are really only thirsty. Drink water throughout the day. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon or 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cranberry juice to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder or one teaspoon of Fructevia, Steviva Blend. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order Fructevia, Steviva Blend or Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder.
Decrease the amount of prepared foods you eat, including frozen meals and food from restaurants. These foods are typically high in carbs, sugars, sodium and calories. The sodium leads to water retention, and the carbs and calories lead to fat. Both show up on the scale.
Get moving! Whether you're walking around the block or jogging by the mile, ramp it up as your body becomes able. More movement burns more calories.
Have an excellent day.
