With the season finale of the Biggest Loser on the prime-time TV lineup for next week, slimming down for summer may be on your mind. Warm, sunny spring weather is sneaking up on you and before you know it, bikini season will be here. Don’t stress out about that bikini bod though, because you can transform your body in no time with just a few super quick and easy steps!
To get your body back on track after a lazy winter, the first thing you need to treat yourself with is sleep. When you are sleep deprived, you tend to crave unhealthy foods for instant energy and you are definitely way too exhausted to exercise. So, help yourself out a little by sleeping just a bit more each night so the next day you can feel refreshed, make wiser food choices, and have the energy to work out.
Another quick way to get your body looking fab is to eat breakfast. Nutritionists aren’t lying to you when they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as breakfast gets your metabolism going and keeps you full throughout the morning and early afternoon. To keep your breakfast exciting and healthy, try to aim for foods rich in protein and fiber, which will help keep you satisfied and feeing fuller longer.
Another way to help your body slim down and trip up is to reduce your portion sizes. Food is packaged and served in such a way that makes it so easy to overeat, and we often don’t pay attention to how many calories we’re actually consuming. An easy way to fix this is to be aware of how much you’re eating, and put down the knife and fork when your stomach is full. Lastly, make sure you are exercising. Even if it’s for ten minutes of your day, working out will maintain your body and overall keep you healthy. And try out other options like the Tummy Tuck Belt or an ab-friendly Stability Ball to get that flat stomach you’ve always hoped for!
