Tips for better summer weight management
One common priority for the summer is to perfect your "beach body." However, you should never buy into schemes that promise to help you "get fit quick." Achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight comes from dedicated diet changes and exercise regimens. Here are two tips to help you get fit this summer:
Have fun while you work out
You'll be more motivated to exercise if it's through an activity that you enjoy. Summer is a great time to try new workouts that feel more like fun than exercise, like biking and swimming. Getting outside can motivate you to work out more, too. A 2012 study from The International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity found that older adults who were physically active outside engaged in that activity longer than those who worked out inside.
Make the most of your calories
It's all too easy for your summer diet to consist of too many calories that give you no nutritional value. If you're serious about managing your weight and getting on a healthy track, redirect your choices and make the most of the calories you consume.
Including seaweed in your daily diet can have profound effects on your weight and health. A study from the Centre for Food Innovation at Sheffield Hallam University found that eating a teaspoon of Seagreens seaweed at breakfast could lower caloric intake by 179 calories for the remainder of the day. This is more than the 100 calorie-reduction known to prevent weight gain. Seagreens is also chock-full of necessary nutrients, which can help you avoid prolonged weight loss, so there is no risk of becoming too thin.
