Here are top tips to make sure you’re looking your best when you hit the beach…
To really crank up that fat burning add some high intensity intervals to your cardio training. Studies have shown that these fast bursts are more effective in burning body fat rather than plodding along for a longer time at an easier pace.
Too many refined carbohydrates (which can be found in white bread and white rice and other processed foods) promote water retention which can lead to bloating. Look to get your carb hit from fruit, vegetables and unprocessed grains instead which will all go some way to eliminate the risk. If you know a certain food makes you prone to bloat avoid it – at least for the time being!
On the same topic of bloat… many carbonated diet drinks will result in water retention so if you’re on a holiday countdown it pays to forgo them and stick to water.
Let’s face it. Most of us look better when we’re sporting a golden glow. A suntan can make muscles look more defined and give an overall leaner appearance. A touch of self-tan or a few sessions in the bronzing salon before you go away will get you ahead of the game and make you feel good.
Get your skin in the best possible shape pre-holiday. Taking time out to exfoliate and hydrate your skin once a week will improve the appearance of dull, dry skin and get it in the best possible shape ahead of catching those rays. Consider a supplement to help keep your skin in tip top condition such as ConVits Complete Hair, Skin & Nails.
Each time we eat, the body burns calories in the process of digestion. So, if calorie counting is your goal consuming more of your calories from protein is a wise move. Protein digestion tends to use the highest number of calories. Also, higher protein diets cause substances called ketones to be released into the bloodstream which can make dieting easier by lowering appetite.
Now’s the time to add some squats into your workout. This high intensity exercise is a terrific calorie burner and is the single most effective weight training exercise to improve the lower physique, toning both rear and thighs.
Keep well hydrated. 7-8 glasses a day will keep your skin looking clearer and help banish bloat caused by particular foods which you have eaten.
If you’re looking to lose body fat make sure you’re getting a decent intake of essential fatty acids. These play an important part in making sure that our bodies are better equip to use carbohydrates. The ideal is about 6 grams per day, either in supplement or food form. Since most of us are unlikely to consume this much solely through food, many people opt to take supplements.
Don’t forget to have a good time!
