The summer is here, and you know what that means. Lots of cool sugary snacks! To avoid putting on weight in the summer months and looking your best in your bikini here are 4 tips:
1) Move your body
Calories in, Calories out is probably something you have heard before. By simply moving your body every day, you will be burning calories. Whether that be inside the gym, in or working out inside your house. Taking the stairs, getting off the subway a stop before, parking your car further away from your destination are all ways to increase your steps per day. Everything counts. Its time to sweat!
2) Consume a high protein breakfast
By eating more protein and healthy fats, you will feel more full. When you feel more full, you will be less inclined to feel hungry. When you do not feel hungry, you will not eat! By simply increasing your protein for breakfast, you will feel satisfied until lunchtime. Try doubling up on protein for breakfast every day.
3) Limit cheat meals during the week.
Summer is full of sugary treats and snacks. Anyone down for some ice cream? Try to avoid overindulging in sugary treats every day. Instead, try one of these strategies
A) Try to consume cheat meals only on weekends
B) Try to consume cheat meals only on days you exercise for more than 30 minutes
By using one of these strategies you will be less likely to store that sugar as body fat
4) Mix up your workout routine – consider outdoor activities
Summer is great for sweating outside. Mix up your exercise routine with outdoor activities. Swimming, jogging, outdoor circuits, and other sports are excellent choices. This will be a shock on your body, which is a good thing. Shocking your body with new strenuous exercise will have positive effects on toning your body. A simple run around the block can even suffice after an indoor training session. Its time for some sweat under the sun! Join us here for programs that will keep you healthy and fit year round!
