Six Tips For Losing Weight This Summer

Jun 26, 2008
Its summer time and everyone wants to wear t-shits, shorts and bikinis. This can be a difficult time for anyone who needs to lose weight as they are given a constant visual reminder of the great bodies on show. The good news is that losing weight in the summer is a lot easier than any other time of the year. The longer days and bright sunshine are great incentives to encourage you to get to work on your weight loss plan. So read on to discover some great tips and advice to help you to join the masses on the beach and look fantastic this summer.

Start The Diet Straight Away: As you know, the summer months can quickly pass. As soon as the seasons start to change from spring to summer you should begin to implement the tips below in to your daily life. Start as you mean to go on and perhaps use the summer as the duration of your goal. For example, begin a diet plan whereby you will lose a small, manageable amount of weight each week and by the end of the summer you will have gradually reached your intended weight loss goal.

Drink As Much Water As Possible: During long, hot summers you will naturally dehydrate and so will find yourself needing to quench your thirst. Drinking water is great for weight loss as it contains no calories and it reduces your appetite. Water is also the best method for cleansing the body of toxins.

Start A Sports Activity: During the summer you should also take advantage of the good weather. There are plenty of physical activities that you can do in the sun. Why not take up a sport or take a brisk walk once a day. The weather provides the extra incentive for you to start these physical activities that you can find yourself easily discouraged from in the winter when it is cold and wet outside. Use the summer months to develop good exercise habits that will be easier to maintain once the seasons change.

Eat Healthy Summer Foods: Another good tip is to take advantage of the food that is popular during the summer months. Everyone wants to hold barbecues and there is no reason why you should be any different, but make sure to add salads to your diet. Tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce taste great and are low calorie foods that will help you to lose that weight. You should also include lots of fruit in your diet. Try to add these as not only will you reduce your daily calorie intake but they are rich in nutrition that will help to improve digestion.

Take A Daily Swim: The hot summer will more than likely encourage you to go swimming and you can use this to accelerate your weight loss. Whilst cooling off in the pool why not develop a training program. Start slowly by swimming say 10 or 20 meters and then as you become more accustomed to the program increase the distance that you swim each and everyday. This cardiovascular activity will do wonders for your weight loss program by burning the fat quickly.

Wake Up Early: Unlike the cold, winter months summer provides a great reason to get up early and enjoy the weather outdoors. Use this time to schedule the exercise routines mentioned above as this is the best time of day to get the most important activities done. The mind is alert and focused and you will be full of energy.
