It’s now staying light later, the weather is warming up, and the countdown to Beach Season is on, San Diego! What are your goals for getting your body ready? Do you want to lose weight, tone up, or target those stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go away? Whatever you have in mind, now is the time to get your plan going.
Need some ideas on where to start? Here are 7 ways to get your body ready for Beach Season.
#1. Limit the carbs
You may think that when trying to lose weight, the most important thing to subtract from your diet is the fat, but one study found that those who cut back on bread, pasta, and potatoes lost more weight than those who cut back on butter and cheese.
#2. Drink lots of water
Changing your diet can make you feel hungry, for sure. But sometimes you might actually be reading your thirst as hunger. Drinking lots of water is not just good for your body to operate at its peak, it can also fill you up so you eat less at mealtimes.
#3. Get plenty of sleep
Sleeping at least 8 hours a day helps your body stay efficient and in good working order. Studies have found that well-rested people burn 20 percent more calories than those who are sleep deprived.
#4. Balance cardio and weight training
You don’t have to spend ten million hours at the gym every day to tone up your body. Sprinting will help you lose more fat in less time than long walks or runs. And adding some weight training to your exercise routine will not only help tone up your muscles but it will also increase your metabolism so you burn more calories even when you’re not at the gym.
#5. Get vitamin shots
If you lack the energy to get in those necessary workouts, you may have vitamin deficiencies. Vitamin shots can help address both fatigue, insomnia, and other factors that are zapping your energy.
#6. Try Lipodissolve
If changes in your diet and exercise routine just aren’t getting rid of those little pockets of fat in your arms, thighs, chin, or stomach, Lipodissolve can help get you beach ready. It’s a non-invasive treatment that melts fat and improves the look of cellulite. Lipodissolve is a series of injections that breaks down the connective bond between fat cells, turning the fat to liquid form and creating a smoother appearance.
#7. Seek medical weight loss therapy
If getting beach ready means losing a significant amount of weight, but you’re having a hard time doing it on your own, you’ll probably experience more success with a medical professional.
