Summer always creeps up on us a lot faster than we’re prepared for! I’ve together a few quick fixes that can help you slim down and shed those few extra pounds to help feel comfortable in that swimsuit!
1. Cut-Out Unnecessary Sugar
You should definitely add this to your routine anyway, but to kick start your slim down, this is a must. Throw out sugary cereals, soda, candy, and anything that is unnecessary for your diet. If you must add something sweet to your diet, grab a piece of dark chocolate!
2. Substitute With Fruit
For every meal, replace a normal carb for fruit. I started doing this a few weeks ago, and without tough workouts, I’ve already seen results. Instead of toast, have a bowl of fruit. Instead of potatoes, have some fruit. Stock up on a wide variety of fruit so you can change it up every meal!
3. Add A Workout
Now, for me, this is the hardest one to add because of my lack of time. But, even if I have 10 minutes, I’ve started going outside and running sprints back and forth on my front lawn. Something is better than nothing, so at least drop down and do 10 pushups!
4. Drink More Water
This is probably the most important thing to do because it will keep you full longer, flush out toxins, and keep you hydrated. If you’re really on crunch time, try drinking about a gallon a day until your event. If you’ve got time, at least drink 8 cups, but shoot for more!
These tips have helped me, especially when I have a special event coming up! Tailor these to fit your needs, and you will start to look and feel great!
