It's finally summer! It is time to put on shorts and swim suits, get outside, and enjoy the wonderful weather. Hopefully you have been successfully sticking to your how to lose weight plan and have lost some weight! Now, you are ready for a summer of fun. Here are some quick tips to spur continued weight loss while you are enjoying the warm breezes.
Tip #1: Pick up a set of delightfully colorful summer dishes in small sizes. Instead of a huge dinner plate, buy the lunch or salad plate and a small bowl. If others in the household are also dieting, pick up a set for each person. Filling a small plate keeps food portions under control but doesn't look like you are depriving yourself. There are so many subtle psychological aspects of losing weight. You can overcome this one by simply using smaller dishes.
Tip #2: Plan when you will exercise. If the heat is too much for you to be outside exercising in, switch your walk to early morning or late evening when the sun is low in the sky. There can be a thirty-degree difference in temperature depending on the time of day. So go out while it is cool and enjoy your walk as the birds begin to sing at dawn. Being happy while you exercise is another of the psychological aspects of dieting. No one wants to stick with an exercise plan that is unenjoyable!
Tip #3: Find your local farm markets. Local vegetables, herbs, and fruit are readily available at the many popular farm markets. Since many communities have them right downtown, you can combine an interesting walk through your downtown area while purchasing healthy, local food. Weight loss is so much easier if you base your meals on fresh vegetables and fruits. These are low calorie, high fiber, and high-nutrient foods that boost health and help melt away the pounds.
Tip #4: Buy a stainless steel water bottle and keep it full of water, carrying it with you everywhere you go. Like it nice and cold? Fill it half full and place in the freezer, and then top it off with water just before you leave. Save all the quarters you would have wasted on high calorie pop and buy yourself a pool pass.
