How To Lose Weight Over The Summer

How To Lose Weight Over The Summer

Summer can provide everything you need for a healthy lifestyle—more physical activity, more fresh produce, and more rest. However, in recent years, some experts have become concerned that Americans are gaining weight over summer break. These tips might help.

6 Tips To Lose Weight This Summer

Scheduled meals

Make sure you remain on a good meal routine—three square meals a day, and two small snacks between meals. Sometimes the heat can suppress your appetite, and skipping meals becomes a new habit. Pull out your phone and set an alert system to keep your meals on schedule.

Physical activity

Focus on physical activity when planning vacations. Try swimming, canoeing, bicycling, hiking, golfing (walk the course), skating, playing ball, etc. Do something out of your norm and give your stale workout routine a vacation. Doing something different not only challenges the body, but something fun, like white water rafting or hiking, can refresh the mind.

TV time

Set a limit on “screen time.” This includes time watching television, on your phone, and sitting at the computer. Limit it to 2 hours/day or less in the summer. With the longer days, your body should be outside having fun and soaking up the vitamin D!

Goal setting

The summer slowdown can give you time to refocus and work on a strategy for your goals. Start with writing a list of things that you enjoy doing, and then create an action plan. Summer is only about 13 weeks long, so set a goal for each week of summer. You will have made a substantial lifestyle change by Labor Day!

Fruits and vegetables

Feast for the winter, flourish in the summer! In the summer, our body usually craves hydrating and easier foods to digest because of the heat. Double your servings of fruits and vegetables while scaling back on high carb and high fat foods. You will not only feel lighter, but your body won’t have to work as hard to digest and cool at the same time.

Water

Hydration is the key to a healthy summer. Kick back non-calorie beverages and replenish those electrolytes. Sugar loaded beverages don’t quench your thirst; instead, they can cause dehydration and increased blood sugar. Also watch out for caffeine loaded beverages which can also increase the dehydration process.
