Summer is the time of the year when you want to look your best. It’s the time to bask
in the sun and wear that swimming suit you wouldn’t be able to use the rest of the year.
We have prepared eight easy steps to keep you looking your best this summer so you can
slide into that old swimming suit possibly be able to buy a smaller size.
1) Throw Out The Temptation
Many of us get tempted by all the Big Mac’s and Pizza that is so abundant in our country.
These things always sound tantalizing to our taste buds. Many times that voice in the
back of our head screaming to restrain yourself gets silenced by our drive for fatty foods.
These foods are around every corner with friends and loved ones offering them to you
every step of the way. To overcome this temptation you must think out a response you
will use every time a situation arises. Keep with this response and have it distilled in
your mind to overcome any temptation that arises.
2) Common Sense is Key
It is all too common to see a person in a fast food restaurant order the fattiest thing on
the menu with a diet soda. Then you think, “Where is the common sense in that?” Its
true that we need to take larger steps. We need to take a look around our surroundings
and realize what is good for us and what isn’t. Realize what is edible for your lifestyle
and what isn’t. Use your common sense on what you choose to eat and keep your self
3) Working Out
Most people wish they could simply wish their weight away. Unfortunately things don’t
work that way. Working out might be one of the most common and best ways to become
lean and fit. It is the best sure fire way to stay fit and healthy for the rest of your life.
So why not embrace this? Stressed for time to work out every day? Find a simple 30
minutes each morning or night to set aside for just this purpose. I promise you will see
your results and have an extra boost of energy every day.
4) Starting a Diet
Diet is probably the most obvious choice in losing those extra pounds. This is a great
idea considering you pick the right diet. Be aware of what works and what doesn’t.
What will hurt your body and what won’t and you will be happy you did the extra
research. Avoid the common mistake of gaining all the weight back immediately after
the diet. Take it slow when you complete the diet, transition from the diet stage to
normal life. This will keep you from wasting all that effort.
5) Stay Away from Fatty Foods
You peer down your street and spot 5 of your favorite fast food restaurants begging
you to enter. Each one with their own fatty sugary menu. Its time to realize what is
good for you and what isn’t. Fatty foods are fine on occasion but they are not for daily
consumption. Decide to find a new diet. Eat at healthier restaurants or go old school and
pack a lunch to work or school. When you look in the mirror later on you will be glad
6) Avoid Being A Couch Potato
American life has become increasingly static. We are probably some of the best sitters
in the world because that’s what we do with the majority of our days. Stop and think
about how much you are in one place every day. You wake up after laying down for
8 hours and decide to go to work where you sit for another seven or eight hours. You
go to school and sit then sit to watch TV and then eat and sit. The days have become
monotonous. Avoid the couch potato routine and pick up a hobby. Soak up the Vitamin
D outside on your free time and you will be glad you did.
7) Give Up On Soda
Soda is probably the quickest way to gain dead weight. Each soda can is chalked loaded
with unhealthy amounts of sugar and calories. If you want to lose weight fast and
easy then drop soda. Replace it with something that will do you well. Choose a better
alternative and you will see fast results.
8) Dispose Of Weight Faster Than You Gain It
Have you ever become bored of your doctors typical response on how to lose weight?
You may have decided to stop asking. The doctor will continually tell you that the
only way to lose weight is to simply dispose of more weight than you gain. He will
continually hammer on this decision because it’s the truth. Do the math on the calorie
count on your daily diet. Decide to do enough exercise daily to combat that amount.
This is the long term answer.
