For some, it is really easy to drop off some extra pounds but others, like me, fight a battle with a constant enemy, their metabolism.
No matter the side of the battle you’re on, here are 5 easy ways to get rid of that extra “load”.
This is one of the most rewarding ways when you intend to lose weight. It is also refreshing on a hot summer day. Imagine a huge swimming pool with crystal-clear water.
This is really nice, isn’t it? Diving into a swimming pool and spending your entire day swimming. You will burn approximately 190 calories in 30 minutes of moderate swimming.
If you decide to spend your vacation in the mountains, then you have the possibility to go hiking. This will contribute to major weight loss and to the relief of all the stress accumulated over the year.
An extra benefit of walking and hiking in the mountains is the fact that you will sweat and this is great for your health. Studies have shown that 30 minutes of hiking will help you get rid of approximately 190 calories.
Summer is a sunny, hot season and this may prompt us to eat lots of ice cream and fattening foods. That is why it is important to keep track of what you eat in a day. Eat a lot of healthy snacks. Fresh fruits and vegetables make a great choice.
There is no better ally in the hot months of summer then water. You need to keep your body hydrated because this is the first, natural step toward weight loss. As a matter of fact, specialists have proven that making the simple change to drink only water every day is enough to help you start losing weight. So hydrate and lose weight in summer!
Walk the beach
A beautiful beach is the perfect place to lose weight in summer. It is amazingly soothing and it helps you work out your body naturally. For this, you have to walk the sand. This will help you burn a lot of calories since it is more than a simple stroll.
You will work your muscles harder with every step. But the benefits don’t end here. You will also find that walking in sand is easier on your joints since it’s soft. Next time you walk on beach, alternate between the soft, deep sand and the hard-packed sand closer to the water for a full joint-easy workout.
