We all want an amazing body to show off at the pool or on the beach, but with swimsuits having popped up months ago in all the retail stores and spring break passing us by, we may think that it's just too late to do anything to improve our physique in time for summer. However, that's simply not correct. While you don't have time to lose 50 pounds, you've got plenty of time to lose 5 or 10 if you start right away! Let these three tips get you feeling more confident in your swimsuit.
Any Exercise Helps
If you live a sedentary lifestyle like the majority of Americans do, you aren't getting a lot of exercise in your day to day life. The good news is that every single bit of exercise you do can help add up to make you look better. Try taking a 30 minute walk or doing some strength training in the gym. If you don't have time for that, do some jumping jacks, planks, pushups, squats, or dead weight lifts for just a few minutes, perhaps while watching TV-commercial breaks are a great time to get your body moving. While you may not see powerful results right away, you will get your body to start changing for the better.
Cut Back on Drinking Calories
One of the biggest culprits of empty calories in our lives is what we drink. Sodas, sweet coffee drinks, and juice all contain an alarming number of calories per serving and they do nothing to fill us up. Those empty calories end up helping us to pack on the pounds, and that's the last thing we want when there's a bikini on the line! Instead, remove these caloric drinks from your life and replace them with water. If you're looking for the wake-me-up of caffeine, try doing some quick exercise, like jumping jacks or running in place, instead-scientists have proven that a little exercise is just as good at waking the body up as caffeine, and exercise, as we know, has negative calories.
Control Portion Sizes
Another way to cut back on your calories without depriving yourself of the foods you love is to cut down on your portion sizes. Restaurants give us plates that are far too full of food, sometimes even to the tune of a whole day's worth of calories, but our brains tell us that we should keep eating, even if we're full. Get the waiter to bring you a to-go box before you start eating your meal so that you can give yourself an appropriate portion and leave the rest for later. Alternatively, eat at home where you can easily control portion sizes by measuring or simply choosing a smaller plate or bowl. Smaller portion sizes will help you to decrease your waist and hips by decreasing the calories you consume.
If you have difficulty controlling your portion sizes, you might consider adding an all natural weight loss supplement with Hoodia to your weight loss plan. Hoodia has long been lauded as a natural appetite suppressant, and many of these weight loss supplements contain other ingredients to curb appetite and encourage your body to naturally lose weight. When combined with exercise and a sensible diet, a natural weight loss supplement may be the key to unlock your swimsuit skinny self.
