Are you thinking it's time to get back in shape? Summer is usually when most people think of fitness. The weather favors water sports, s...
Eat healthier and you may be surprised at how full you feel after eating quality grains and vegetables, and less cheese, meat, and snacks. Eat fewer times a day with fewer calories. Eating something light first thing in the morning helps. Make sure to chew longer. This produces more hormones believed to curb hunger while also breaking food down to get more of the nutrients.
Cut out most carbs on your new "sort of diet", because carbs are just empty calories and the fastest way to gain weight. You don't need a strict diet of what to eat and what not to eat. Instead, reduce carbs. Stick to lean meats and vegetables. Get rid of sweets and be careful with fruits as they contain high levels of sugar.
Drink more water, less alcohol, and caffeine. Not drinking enough water makes you retain water under your skin's surface which only makes you look bloated!
Sleep well to give your body a head start on losing weight, namely by speeding up your metabolism. Go to bed on time and maintain a healthy sleep schedule. One should rest their body well to be able to focus on workout well. Follow the early to bed and early to rise formula to succeed.
Workout in high-intensity intervals for at least 30 minutes a day, five times a week. Working out releases a hormone calls irisin, which converts white fat to brown, helping you cut down fat.
No gym is required for summer fitness, and it's easy to get fit at home using only the floor and your body. Core workouts are the most important as they get your blood pumping. There are great examples of summer diets that can work according to your lifestyle and you don't even have to change that much. It's all about portion control.

Most importantly, make exercise fun. If you hate working out, then go for a trek or a job and increase the time if necessary. It's better to incorporate a habit you will stick with for the long-term instead of some short-duration workout routine.
As you can see, it's just a matter of doing the math, putting forth the effort and disciplining yourself to break away from old habits. It won't be easy, but it will be fast since this workout and diet change can work in as little as four weeks. You may notice a change right away in mood and physical sensation too. Your body will lose fat around the one month mark and if you keep it up by August, you'll look even better than you do in June. Why not get started today?
Get ready to flaunt your beach body this summer!
