We’re deep into Summer. Could it get any better… long weekends at the beach and catching up with old friends! Here’s some of the most effective (and easy) tips to make sure you’re staying in that tip-top swimsuit-shape:
1) Amp up the cardio
Grab your running shoes and hit the pavement. Cardiovascular activities are the best (and quickest) ways to burn off that layer of winter weight your body is still holding on to. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate cardio exercise, six times a week, to get in optimal shape. Cardio activities we love that keep us coming back for more: spinning, Zumba, tennis, and kickboxing.
2) Eat more greens
To rejuvenate and refresh your body, add more green produce into your diet. Leafy greens like Kale, Dandelion Greens, Watercress, Arugula, and Spinach work well in salads and give you a hefty amount of vitamin C, calcium, iron, and fiber.
3) Lay off the soda
Stay away from the soda if you want to keep bloat to a minimum. Soda contains caffeine, which acts as a diuretic, making your kidneys work harder to get rid of the excess sugar. Instead, replenish your body with water and refresh your entire system.
4) Cut out the added sugar
Eating foods rich in added sugar spikes blood sugar levels and hinders your body’s ability to burn fat. It also promotes inflammation in the body, which can leave you bloated and feeling lethargic. Be sure to read the labels and check for hidden sugars like high fructose corn syrup and dextrose.
5) Supplement your diet with Lichi Super Fruit
Fusing clinically proven natural ingredients like Lychee Berry, Acai, Green Tea Extract, Cayenne pepper, and Resveratrol in a unique blend, Lichi Super Fruit promises to deliver a slimmer waistline, increased vitality, and an improved skin tone and texture. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, Lichi Super Fruit protects you from free radicals, defending your body against premature aging.
