The healthy way to get summer body ready

Here are three ways to kick-start your healthy weight loss plan this summer:

1. Make realistic diet changes

You can say that you’ll cut all sugar and processed food from your diet forever, but is this a realistic goal? Your fat loss plan needs to be sustainable and something you can continue long after summer is over; if your diet plan is too strict, it’s unlikely that you’ll stick to it. Most importantly, if you have an overindulgent day you should want to get back on the diet plan instead of giving up. 

2. Don’t go hungry

Weight loss isn’t about starvation, the focus should be on making healthy food choices that actually keep you feeling full. Short term calorie deficit might give you a lean stomach for a short while, but your weight will pile right back on when you start eating normally. Start with some simple changes, such as whole-wheat pasta instead of white, fruit instead of processed sugar.

3. Focus on measurements at the gym

When you’re trying to lose weight, it’s easy to become fixated by the number on the scales. Muscle weighs more than fat, so you might actually see your weight increase despite the hours you put in at the gym. Get an accurate body fat measurement before starting your fitness regime, and focus on making this number smaller. If you’re looking for the best way to measure body fat, then look no further than a DEXA body composition scan.
