We all want to achieve the perfect summer body but lack the motivation and drive to work for it, but with these five easy and simple tips you will be on your way to having the body of your dreams.
Drinks at least 2 litres of water a day
It is vital that we keep ourselves hydrated by drinking plenty of water as the human body is made up of over 60% of water. Water can aid weight loss as it filters your stomach, mimicking the sensation of being full. However, water does not only boost weight loss it also hydrates the skin, locking in moisture.
It is recommended to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, to ensure you feel the benefits as well as fully hydrating your body.
Snack of Fruit and Nuts
One thing that people struggle with when they are cutting out the junk and rubbish from their diet is their mid-day cravings. To combat these cravings, snack on sweets fruits and salty nuts as these foods should reduce your unhealthy food cravings.
Having fruits such as strawberries and raspberries will provide you with the sweet taste you are craving. These tart fruits will not only reduce your sugar craving; they will provide your body with nutrients it needs.
If you are craving savoury food such as crisps and crackers, have some lightly salted nuts as they will provide your body with the same flavours you are craving with the crisps but with half the saturated fat. Nuts are a good source of fibre and fill your body with the fat it needs.
Prepare Your Meals in Advance
We all have busy lives with hectic schedules, so to stay on top of your healthy eating make food plans as they allow you to map out what you are going to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the week ahead. This planning allows you to stay on track and ensure that you are eating healthy.
