Get your beach body back!
Rule 1. Make clear decisions
No alcohol, no bread, and no processed carbs. Stick to lean proteins like chicken or salmon, and lots of green veggies and fruit.
Rule 2. Make healthier snacks!
While you’re cutting certain foods, you can add new low cal snacks to feel full. Snack on vegetables combined with a protein load like celery and almond butter or red and green bell peppers with some salsa sauce or nonfat hummus.
Rule 3. Exercise at home or join a fitness group
Do your exercises! Commit at least a few minutes each day on various exercises and stretches to strengthen your body and to support your joints in the long term.
Rule 4. Set realistic goals
Reassess your fitness goals and create good habits. For instance, walk for 30min in a fast pace every morning and increase the speed over a time period of a few weeks. Achieving realistic goals will boost your self confidence and will keep you on track.
Rule 5. Eating out
If you often find yourself eating out, stick to your nutrition goals. Having an idea of what you’re going to order beforehand will allow you to make smarter choices. A good trick: Order a salad as soon as you sit down, that will keep you from reaching for the bread.
Rule 6. Indulge wisely
Indulging occasionally isn’t the end of the world, but you have to control it. If you’re going out during the weekend and don’t want to abstain completely or you crave for something sweet, a small piece of dark chocolate or a fruit tart will do and won’t derail your eating habits.
