Are You Feeling Confident About Your Body?

Summer is upon us and that means bathing suits and lots of fun in the sun! Are you ready? Or are you feeling like you’ve gained a few pounds since last year?

Instead of dieting, which can have disastrous effects on your metabolism and may only generate temporary weight loss, it may be time to re-vamp your lifestyle. 

You may think that you don’t have time to exercise or eat right, but cooking healthy doesn’t have to take a lot of time, and exercise should be an integral part of your day—something that is built into your plans. For those who exercise regularly, they actually miss it if they can’t do it for a few days!

While there is a running debate on how much exercise someone needs, a good start would be 30 minutes 3- 4 times a week. Interval training is a good way to shed pounds and get in shape quickly. This involves “surprising” the body by changing exercises every few minutes from weights to cardio or by alternating levels of exertion.

As far as eating healthy, it’s vital that we feed the body plenty of nutrients, which means going back to consuming real food that’s unprocessed and free of chemicals. Chemicals weigh the body down and actually make you heavier! One of the worst offenders is diet soda! Think about it. Do you ever see a thin person drinking a diet coke? Studies have shown that diet soda makes people hungry so that they eat more. The artificial sweetener actually breaks down to either a formaldehyde type substance or PCB’s when it is ingested. The body surrounds the sweetener with fat and water to try to stop it from poisoning the rest of the body. So the person becomes heavier and can become more bloated too!
