The beach season is fast approaching. Are you ready? Otherwise, don’t freak out. You still have plenty of time to get rid of those extra inches before the vacation. There is no reason to switch to a radical and potentially dangerous fitness program. Instead, apply the following guidelines to your lifestyle, choose a healthy diet, and participate in an effective exercise program. They will help you lose weight quickly and safely for spring break.
Be Cautious Of Programs That Advertise “Fast” Results
Fitness plans that promise quick results become quite attractive as the warm weather draw nearer. However, you must understand that many of these weight loss programs are risky. They are also unreliable, especially if you are expecting long-term results.
Your health should always be your top priority. Any diet or program that unnecessarily jeopardizes your health is not worth it. We do not say that you should not challenge yourself, but you must know your limits. To be overly hungry, confused, exhausted or hurt are a good indication that you are trying too hard.
We know that you want to lose weight in time for the spring break. However, participating in a foolish fitness plan not only affects your weight loss but can also affect your overall health. It could also cause you to miss your trip completely!
Drop the Pounds Quickly and Safely for Spring Break
According to the CDC, a healthy amount of weight to lose every week is 1 to 2 pounds. Although it does not look like much, you can lose 12 pounds after 4-6 weeks! You (and everyone else) will notice the difference when you wear that bikini!
We start with the healthy guidelines that you can implement daily to safely and steadily in order to lose weight.
1. Set Healthy (And Obtainable) Daily Goals
First, set yourself a daily goal to achieve. Obviously, this is not a weight loss goal. Instead, choose something like “I’m going to take 10,000 steps today” or “I’ll skip the sugary drinks and just drink some water.” It has been proven that goals that can be achieved and that bring something to work will enable you to stay on track
Speaking of water, you should drink at least 64 ounces a day. Fill a glass and take it with you wherever you go!
2. Stop Weighing Yourself So Often
It may take a while to get used to it, but promise it is useful! Stop weighing yourself every day. Did you know that your body weight can fluctuate up to 6 pounds a day? That’s why we do not want you to climb the scale every morning. Choose a day every week to weigh yourself. Write it down and keep the scale away for another week.
Why is it so important? Because the human mind is incredibly complicated. If you do not see a change in the scale every day, it can be daunting and you might want to give up. Do not let that happen to you! Take care of your health and well-being rather than focusing on weight. A positive state of mind can make a difference.
3. Adopt A Healthy Eating Plan
Weight gain is based on excessive calorie consumption from day to day. I want you to remember that the best diet is simply the one that you can follow for as long as possible.
Too many diets take a drastic way to lose weight. starving yourself will result in the crash of your metabolism, leading to weight retention and possibly weight gain. If you deprive yourself of a macronutrient (eg dietary fat), this can lead to a potentially dangerous nutrient deficiency. Your body needs a certain amount of protein, carbohydrates, fats and calories to maintain and function optimally.
In other words, your diet should be followed by two steps if you want to lose weight fast and safely during the spring break.
First, you need to know how many calories you need to consume daily to lose weight. This depends heavily on your age, height, weight, level of activity, and more. Eating the right amount of calories for your body and goals will get you in shape faster!
Once you know how many calories you need each day, you can choose the right meal program for yourself. Do not forget to choose wisely. For example, if you want to eat a lot of fruit, vegetables, oats or bread, a low carbohydrate diet is unlikely to work for you.
4. Workout Routines
Choosing the right exercise program is just as important as choosing the right diet plan. It is important to wait and enjoy your workout! For example, if you can not physically run, you should not select a running program. Instead, choose a workout routine that uses HIIT or another bodyweight exercise.
Regular exercise will increase the rate of your weight loss significantly, allowing you to reach your beach body goals even faster. The following programs include cardiovascular exercise, strength training and flexibility. These three things will give you a safe and effective program for losing weight!
Unfortunately, most of us can not lose several kilos a week for sure, but this can be a big impact on your health and appearance with constant effort. The more time you spend on your spring break trip, the better, so start right now. Do not push it back for a minute! Apply the above health guidelines and start eating well and work out today.
