Healthy Living | Six Ways To Boost Your Weight Loss This Summer

If you have been finding it a struggle to lose those last few pounds before you go on vacation, then know you’re not alone; the struggle is real! It can be hard to get to your goal weight when you’ve already lost a lot of weight, or you don’t have too much to lose in the first place; basically, it is a struggle. But if you’re determined to shift a few more pounds before summer is out, then here are a few tips and tricks to give your weight loss a boost.

Eat Enough Food

When you don’t eat enough food, it can make it a struggle to actually lose weight, as contradictory as that sounds. If you go below what your body needs to function, then it will hold onto any calories that it does get, and it puts the brakes on your metabolism. So even though you should be cutting down your calorific intake, you still need to make sure that you’re having enough calories.

Always Eat Breakfast

The old phrase that breakfast is the most important meal of the day was onto something! Having breakfast is really important when it comes to losing weight. It helps to give your metabolism a boost in the morning, as well as provide you with some much-needed energy. Don’t skip breakfast, whatever you do!

Try a Cleanse

If you’re struggling to shift those last few pounds until you’re at your target weight, then trying a cleanse could be a good way to go. A natural cleanse like could be for you, as it will help you to lose weight, as well as help to improve your muscle tone. Sometimes trying something different can be just the thing to give your body the weight loss boost that it needs.

Stay Hydrated

If you find that you feel hungry quite a lot, then it is a good idea to be drinking more water. Most of the time, when you feel hungry, you’re actually feeling dehydrated. Plus, when you’re hydrated, you’ll have more energy, clearer skin, and your body will be working as it should. So aim for at least two liters of water a day, and even more if you are exercising. To aid in your new-found energetic self, try out a new light weight fitness hobby such as power walking and/or hiking. Over time, I’ve found hiking to be very therapeutic. And if you’re ready to go another step, just plan a fun, laid-back camping trip all together. Get yourself in the #MOOD by browsing some cool hiking and camping gear on the i-net to make sure you’re prepared — physically anyhow!

Eat More Organic Food

If you have been finding it hard to lose weight, then look at what you have eaten over the past few months and weeks. If there was very little organic food, then it could be to blame. Studies like this one have shown that pesticides and chemicals that are put into foods or grown with foods that aren’t organic can actually cause weight gain. So if you want to boost your weight loss, perhaps organic foods should be the way that you go?

Cut Out Alcohol

Alcohol is just like drinking empty calories as there is no nutritional benefit from it. So avoiding too many cocktails this summer is going to help your weight loss. It is going to take plenty of self-discipline, but you’ll see a difference for sure.
