If you're wondering what you can do to lose weight and put on that swimsuit you like so much, we have some tips you can follow which will help you look and feel your best for the holidays.
Say yes to fruits and vegetables
Now, this may seem obvious, but if you want to lose weight, it makes a big difference to add some extra fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Make it a habit to include some fruit at breakfast every day and always accompany your meal with a salad.
Try eating your veggies first, this helps your stomach feel full which can reduce cravings and leave less space for other foods that contain more calories.
Plan your meals weekly
The first step to eating healthy is to be proactive in your planning at home. Planning is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle as it will help you avoid the “see it and eat it” habit that we all know too well.
Plan your meals weekly, do your groceries on the weekend and be sure to buy everything you need to prep for healthy eating during the week. Planning ahead will help you to create better eating habits!
Make health conscious choices when eating out
If you can’t eat at home and end up going to a restaurant, remember to make health conscious choices. Even if you’re at a place that doesn’t offer the healthiest variety of food, there are always ways to decrease the calories in your meal. Take a burger for example - you can order the burger and just eat one side of the bun, or you can even ask for no bun at all! Adapting to your new lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t have fun!
Find an exercise routine that suits you
It’s important to take into account that the same exercise routine doesn’t work for everyone. It’s important to find something that fits your lifestyle and that you enjoy doing. Finding a fitness regime that works for you is essential to the success of your weight loss journey.
Try asking the gym coach for advise, or look into some different routines on the internet or social media networks for ideas.
Find a buddy
If you know someone else with the same fitness goals, team up together for support and motivate each other to keep moving forward. Working towards your fitness goals as a team is a great way to stay on track.
But, above all: don’t obsess!
Of course it’s true that we all want to look great on vacation, but if you begin obsessing about losing weight it becomes difficult to achieve.
Remember, being fit and healthy is a lifestyle and although you might try a little harder to lose those extra pounds in the few weeks leading up to your vacation, it’s best to create habits that you know you can stick to year round, such as clean eating and exercising regularly.
