Do you often feel pangs of envy when you are on the beach or in the pool and notice how amazing the other ladies look in their bikinis? No, they haven't simply been sipping a magic potion to get those bikini bodies; you should aim to get both your diet and exercise regime right.
Here are various facets of a winning formula to leave yourself a stunner in the summer.
Resist any temptation to crash diet
If you lack a lot of time to devote to regularly exercising and sorting out your diet, you might be tempted to crash diet. Don't! This tactic can wreak havoc on your skin by loosening its elasticity and so making it sag. A deficiency in key nutrients would be to blame there, says Cosmopolitan.
Therefore, don't skip sensibly eating. Adopt a rainbow diet of colourful fruit and vegetables such as apricots, red peppers, tomatoes and pink grapefruit.
Don't take a break from healthy breakfasts
Many people are neglectful about breakfast; over a third often avoid it while one in 10 routinely skip it, says Closer. Sticking to either of these habits could prevent you from achieving a beach body. You should consume healthy breakfasts on a consistent basis.
Drink carefully-brewed tea to prevent bloat
You might occasionally reach for a carbonated drink when you are busy, but that beverage can too easily bloat your stomach.
A better alternative would be drinking tea brewed through these steps outlined by Shape. This recipe would involve you putting some fresh lemon juice, dried dandelion leaf and ginger into hot water. The ginger can help by soothing your digestive track.
Closely track your fitness to set goals
Once you think you have got your diet right, you can move onto the exercising - but how can you decide the amount of it that you should do? It would be wise to see how far you can currently go - such as the tally of push-ups or lunges that you can manage.
Whatever you measure, make a note of your records in various areas - such as the length of time that you can maintain a plank or wall squat. Then, aim to set new records in a month's time.
Don't overlook the benefits of HIIT
If you always do the same exercises at the same pace, both your enthusiasm and rate of calorie-burning could falter. However, by switching to high-intensity interval training, commonly called HIIT, you can mix things up and burn additional calories even during your post-exercise hours.
Build up a supportive social network
When you are struggling to motivate yourself, you could receive appreciable encouragement to pick yourself back up if you have friends who are also trying to get their bodies into shape.
Hence, it's worth seeking supportive people with whom you could exercise - and you could find such people at fitness retreats run by Prestige Boot Camp staff. Our camps take place in various exotic settings that can help to make exercising more fun.
