The Secret 2 Fat Loss: How To Get On A Great Summer Weight Loss Plan

Jun 17, 2008
Summer is here and everybody wants to look good in their skin. Maybe you already workout but want to see more results, or maybe you are just beginning. Either way, there's still time to lose weight, get in shape, and enjoy the summer sun while wearing your bikini or favorite swimsuit. However, you have to start today!

First, you have to ask yourself whether you are willing to work hard and give what it takes to see results. You have to question whether your current physique...or your food cravings are more important to you. If you crave to have a great body more than you do to satisfy your sweet tooth, then you are ready to get started.

A good exercise regimen varies it exercise selection, rest times, and intensity. Your workout plan must consist of 3-5 days of consistent exercising anywhere from 30-45 minutes per day. Consider taking a walk around your neighborhood. Twice a week you need to have a moderate level of training, such as power walking, for 45 minutes. Three days each week you should exercise 30 minutes hard. Try biking outdoors or hiking to mix things up.

In order to burn large amounts of body fat, and thus lose weight, you have to exercise at the right intensity. Sweat is essential because it means you are exercising intense enough to burn fat, which translates into weight loss if you continue to make the efforts every week.

Drink plenty of water. On average it's recommended that you drink half your body weight in ounces of water. However, if you are working out you need to add a minimum of 20 additional ounces. A great way to accomplish this is to "pre-hydrate" yourself every morning by drinking a rather large glass of water just after waking and about 20-30 minutes before breakfast.

However, if you think just changing your activity levels will get you the results you are looking for you are very mistaken. You need to make solid daily commitments with your diet if you are ever going to get to your weight loss goals. Diet is perhaps THE most important key to getting your ideal physique.

Most of all, you need to eliminate food choices that contain a lot of choices. For every serving of sugar you have, it is the equivalent of negating the effects of a workout. So, if you eat junk yet workout everyday, it is unlikely you will see any change in your weight except gaining fat!

Find what gets you motivated. Find something to get you motivated every single day this summer so you can use the great weather to catapult you into summer weight loss success! If it means listening to music while you workout...then do it. If it means working out with a partner...then find one. Do what you have to do, but make the choice now to get moving toward your weight loss goals by taking action!
