With summer approaching and warmer weather on the way, it will soon be time to bare our bodies again, whether bathing by the pool, relaxing on the beach, or being out and about clad sparsely in more revealing clothing. So whether you’ll be by the pool, on the beach, on in your back garden, here’s some guide to trimming down and toning up, and making the best of yourself.
I recommend that looking and feeling your best for the summer boils down to three key things which is eating the right foods, taking regular exercise and supporting your healthy food intake with vitality boosting supplements. Rather than viewing food as your biggest enemy when trying to shed those pounds, try changing your perception and seeing food as vital fuel for fitness and well being.
Most importantly, ensure your diet contains plenty of carbohydrates, protein and fats, and all in combination for optimum health benefits. Carbohydrates, as found in vegetables, fruits and grains, are your main energy source and without them you’ll be feeling sluggish, tired and unwell.
When you can make the time, making your meals from scratch helps avoid eating hidden preservatives, artificial sweeteners and hydrogenated oils. Most importantly, cut back on soda, dairy chocolate and package bought cookies, cakes and sweets. Whatever you’re doing, keep healthy snacks at hand to avoid temptation.
When shaping up for summer, you may feel you want extra support to complement your efforts getting your eating right and supplements can really help with this. Green food supplements like spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass and nettle can be a useful addition to a healthy diet, providing vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes and antioxidants to nourish and purify the body.
Remember that supplements are like the super boost for your body, giving you that little bit extra, but you have to work on your diet and your exercise regime to reap the real benefits supplements can offer. Get these three things sorted, stick with it, and you will be feeling alive, energized and ready to hit the beach looking in tip top shape for summer!
