Swimsuits Season Prep Tips

Spring is in full swing and before we know it, summer will have arrived. For many, these months signal a time when we can shed that heavy clothing in favor of something lighter and of course, hit the beach. However, not all people feel like their bodies are bikini-ready. If you fall into this category, consider following the weight-loss advice below:

1) Eat more

You may be surprised to read this, but eating six to eight small meals a day can actually help you shed pounds. The idea is to keep your metabolism up.

2) Enjoy that cup of java

Coffee is one beverage that can help speed up your metabolism. However, remember to leave behind all the sugar and cream that can add empty calories.

3) Hit the gym

You don’t have to spend hours getting your sweat on, all it takes is 30 minutes three to four times per week. Start off slowly and then gradually build up your intensity. Do your best to get out of the “all or nothing” mindset.

4) Drink water

Sodas, even those that are diet, can bloat you and cause cellulite. Water does none of these and quenches your thirst. Aim for eight cups daily. The best way to reach this goal is to carry around a refillable water bottle with you.

Keep in mind that sometimes, you don’t lose all the weight that you want. If this happens, you may want to consider visiting a board-certified plastic surgeon to inquire about liposuction.
