Summer is here! Are you ready? If you've been working on your bikini body all winter, good for you! But if you're like most of us and still need a bit of sculpting before you're ready to bare it all and work on your tan, take note of some of these last-minute, body-firming tips.
The warmer weather will no doubt remind you to choose wisely when you snack or at mealtimes but in case you need a little direction, try some of these healthy suggestions:
Focus on Whole Foods
Unprocessed foods are your best bet for quick and sustainable weight loss. If it doesn't come in a package, it's probably a good choice. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and low-fat dairy are great choices anytime of the day. But remember, if you're trying to lose a pound or two, keep your serving sizes small and your total calorie intake between about 1500 and 2000 calories, depending on your body size.
Skip the Soda
Actually, skip any drink that isn't water. You can eliminate an impressive number of calories from your diet by always drinking water instead of other options. Plus, water will make you feel full, which makes passing by those donut holes much easier.
Consider a Cleanse
Talk to your doctor about trying a one-day cleanse. It's possible that you could lose that last, stubborn pound, and you could start the next day feeling more clear-headed and refreshed than normal.
Go for Cardio
Cardio workouts are great for burning fat, which will offer faster visual results than building muscle. Just make sure you don't reward yourself with a high-fat, high-calorie treat afterwards!
