A Healthy Diet
There probably is not one single person on the planet that has not already heard that eating a healthy diet can help an individual lose weight. However, the reason it keeps being shouted from the mountaintops, is because it works. Sugary treats and fried foods are notorious for putting on unwanted pounds and inches in nearly all of us. However, by reversing that diet, and consuming healthy foods like organic fruits and vegetables, quality lean meats, and healthy nuts and grains can make an individual shed off their pounds and inches.
Eating More Not Less
What? I can eat more not less and still lose weight? The answer to that question is surprisingly ìyesî you can. By consuming better quality food, more times throughout the day, youíll actually lose weight. To achieve this effect, youíll need to eat a quality breakfast as early in the day as possible. Follow that with a midmorning snack to ward off any hunger pangs. It might be nothing more than a handful of unsalted nuts. Lunchtime brings with it a meal that is just as nutritious, and portion properly, as breakfast.
In midafternoon, itís important to stop whatever youíre doing, and consume another healthiest of nuts. Follow that by an early dinner, as early as possible, and call that the last meal of the day. If you live a traditional lifestyle of rising at six or 7 AM, and going to bed at 10 PM, never eat 7 oíclock in the evening. This will allow for a long fasting period of time between dinner and an early breakfast, which will help eliminate weight.
Itís imperative to never miss the first meal of the day. By consuming breakfast every morning, youíll start your metabolism off right, and burn off excess pounds right from the start.
It does not take much to get ready for bikini season. With a little forethought, pre-planning, cardio workout, weight lifting and a healthy diet youíll be ready for your bikini in no time.
