No summer figure yet? Hurry up now. 😉 With these tips you can manage to be fit and feel good by the middle of summer.
1. Clean your kitchen
… and part with all food that does not help you or that can lead you away from your goal. Which are they? For example ready meals, sweets, flour dishes / pastries, cornflakes, spreads (both sweet and savory), margarine, etc. Take a look deeper into your shelves 😉 Often there are old foods there that you no longer eat.
You can’t eat what you don’t have at home.
2. Put together a meal plan
Your meals should consist of good ingredients, be balanced, taste good and keep you full for a long time. Be careful not to eat too little fat and make sure that you are getting enough protein.
You need a calorie deficit to lose weight. You can read everything here .
3. Make a fitness purchase
Now that you’ve sorted out , buy “real” food. These are those that occur untreated in nature. Examples are rice, potatoes, oatmeal, meat, fish, eggs, quark / curd cheese, vegetables, salad and fruits.
Tip: Make sure that the food does not have an ingredient list – then you know that they are of natural origin.
4. Stick to a training plan
Diet and exercise go hand in hand. On the way to a summer figure, training is just as important as a healthy diet. If you follow a plan, it will be much easier for you to keep to your training because you can simply “work off” the plan day after day. This way you can also see what you’ve already achieved and what still needs to be done.
Find a sport that you enjoy. Make sure that she challenges you properly and that you work up a sweat! It should be at least three times a week.
Tip: For a firmer figure, you should not only do endurance training, but rather focus on good strength training .
5. Get active
It’s great that you’re going to train. But also move around in everyday life as often as you can: always take the stairs, walk short distances or ride a bike, treat yourself to a leisurely walk or go hiking. Especially if you have to sit a lot in your job, you will quickly appreciate this balance.
Did you know? Additional exercise in everyday life can make a difference of 500 to 700 calories per day. This is a not insignificant part of your total calorie requirement. So: get up and move! 😉
6. Create an optimal environment
Stress has a negative effect not only psychologically, but also physically. Therefore, eliminate various stressors and ensure a regular daily routine: Determine in advance when you do what, so that you do not miss out on sport, find space for your everyday activities and you get enough relaxation. This will keep the stress hormone cortisol low and thus promote your fat burning.
Tell your family and friends about your plan. So they understand, can support you or even become active themselves.
