Start losing weight today: tips and rules for a successful diet program
Summer’s almost here and we can’t wait to put on our bathing suits. But then we start to think about all those little things we hate in our body and want to hide from the world.
That excess belly fat, or the cellulite in our thighs….everyone has some part of their body that they’re not proud of.
There are a few weeks left before summer, which is more or less the time we have to start a healthy diet, tone up and lose some pounds. So let’s focus on the main goals:
Lose the cellulite (or at least a part of it)
Shed the excess pounds in our body
Toning and firming problematic areas
Celebrating the goals achieved with a facial, a body scrub, a massage, a new summer hairstyle and some new pieces of clothing
the 3 first aspects of this “get ready for summer program” are intimately connected and are achieved almost simultaneously . the first thing to do to end cellulite is to drink water. Lots of water!
A minimum of 8 glasses each day. Carry a bottle of water in your handbag have another at your office so you never forget to hydrate and eliminate toxins out of your body.
Exercise is the next step to eliminate excess fat, firm, and get rid of cellulite. I would advise running every day for 40 minutes. Running is a very complete exercise that works most of the muscles in your body.
Exercises that are geared towards specific areas of your body aren’t the ideal thing you should do if you’ve accumulated excess fat over the years.
The next step is to completely revolutionize your nutrition habits.
Get rid of all junk food in your kitchen. Frozen meals: garbage!
Pancakes at breakfast: forget it! Drink an orange juice at breakfast with some cereals and non fat milk.
At lunch and dinner eat a soup and a salad. If you’re a big eater try fish like salmon and tuna and white meats.
Don’t forget to eat 5 pieces of fruit each day; they provide fibres, vitamins and minerals.
You can, 2 days a week eat a chocolate bar (try dark chocolate, it has less fat and is anti-oxidant) or a dessert.
You can complement all the tricks above with a natural supplement that will help you lose weight faster and speed up your body toning.
Not everyone can or wants to submit themselves to a strict nutrition regime.
