The Secret 2 Fat Loss: The Top 5 Tips to Summer Weight Loss

Jun 20, 2008
Summer is coming up real quick. If you're looking to lose weight before summer hits full blast, here are the top 5 secrets to summer weight loss!

1. Drink plenty of water! This is very important since the weather can sometimes reach unbearable temperatures, which can lead to quick dehydration and sun stroke. You should drink at least 8 large glasses of water a day.

The best part about water: no calories, helps curb your appetite, and helps your body digest food easily; perfect help for your weight loss goals. Avoid soft drinks, sports drink or fruit drinks. They have so much sugar, aka worthless calories.

2. Focus on beneficial fats and reduce carbs! Not all fats are created equal but during the summer time and for your weight loss program, you should try to eat as much essential fatty acids as possible. These would include omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The benefits of these fatty acids? Regulates blood sugar levels, balances hormone levels and relaxes inflammation.

Easy ways to get omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids? Fish and flax oil. You should avoid carbs, especially since your goal is to lose weight. Carbs breakdown into sugar so to lose weight, you will want to reduce all sugar intake. Doing this will help your body burn fat and eventually lose weight!

3. Increase your fiber intake! Fiber helps your body digest more easily and increasing your fiber intake will also help in filtering your body of toxins. This will also help to regulate your blood sugar levels.

4. Eat more small meals! Usually you go with 3 full meals a day. Instead, you should eat 5-6 small meals a day to help you lose weight. Of course, it sounds backwards but eating this way will help to regulate your body's various levels, ie: blood sugar and insulin, crucial during the summer. Not only that, but eating these smaller meals 5-6 times a day will keep your appetite down, especially helpful to avoid that junk food.

5. Avoid alcohol! It may be difficult but try to avoid alcohol as much as possible. Alcohol has tons of calories and will block your body from burning fat. Not only that but, as we all know, alcohol makes you dehydrated so water is a better choice and if anything, drink water between your alcoholic drinks.

They're tasty for sure but to help lower your alcohol intake, add a lime or lemon wedge in your water. Cutting back on alcohol will definitely help you lose weight quick and in time for your summer time fun!
