Spring is here and summer is right around the corner, are you ready? Staying fit all year round is the healthy way to live your life rather than feeling the pressure to fit into a swimsuit within a few weeks time. But if you haven’t been able to be consistent with your workouts and healthy diet, here are 2 simple tips to help you lose weight a little faster.
1. You’ve heard it before, “drink more water!” and that message is no joke especially when it comes to weight loss and your health. Yes, water keeps you hydrated which is important for your body to function properly. Water intake keeps your skin looking young and vibrant. Also, lack of water within your system is why you keep eating when you’re not hungry. In addition to these benefits did you know that drinking water is one of the most powerful ways to lose weight?
Drinking 2-3 liters of water per day will speed up your metabolism by up to 33%, now that’s crazy, but true! Add lemon to that water and simutaneously detoxify your liver and metabolize fat while also speeding up your metabolism. Read more about detoxifying foods here. It’s that simple. Now, if you’re like me and most everyone else, you probably have good intensions to drink more water each day and then forget to, realizing hours have gone by without one sip of any hydration. Here’s a tip: just jot yourself a note on a post-it and place it where you will see the reminder all day. Not only will you remember to drink more water but you will feel and look better within one day, you won’t believe it.
2. Exercise can be dreaded but when the right workouts are chosen it can be fun. Plus, changing up your workouts keeps interest and rotating the type of exercise you’re doing is important to confuse your muscles and see real change.
