The best diet program to lose weight during the summer season

While it's exciting to welcome the warmer months, it can also be a cause for stress, especially if you don't feel comfortable or confident in your body. The good news is that you can make a change for the better by incorporating the following simple tips. But simplicity does not mean ease. It will take conscious effort, dedication, and consistency to see results.

Losing 2 to 3 pounds per week is a healthy and sustainable approach, which means you could lose around 20 pounds if you start incorporating these tips today.

Weight loss tips:

Do not drink drinks that contain a lot of calories.

Pay attention to portion sizes.

Be more active.

1. Stop drinks that contain a lot of calories.

In order to lose weight , you must be in a calorie deficit. Basically, you need to burn more calories than you consume. Drinking drinks that contain a lot of calories can hinder your progress. Soda is the big culprit. One can of regular soda is usually around 150 calories. Most people who enjoy soda drink more than one can a day. These calories can quickly add up to the equivalent of a snack or a full meal. If you like to drink soda, consider switching to a diet. You can also consider sparkling water. This key alone can help you lose weight easily.

Another tricky reason is adding toppings to your morning coffee. Check the labels on milk cream and milk. Black coffee is always a great option, but if you can't drink your coffee that way, consider lower-calorie options to add on.

Fruit juices are delicious, but again they contain a lot of calories. Why not just enjoy a piece of fruit instead? You get all the benefits of fruit without the added sugar.

Finally, let's talk about water. We all know we should drink water, but sometimes plain water isn't what we want. If you struggle with drinking water, try adding fruit or using a flavor like MIO. MIO's mandarin orange is my favorite! To help me drink more water throughout the day, I also carry a cup with you wherever I go.

2. Pay attention to the portion size.

 I highly recommend keeping track of your calorie intake. You can write everything down on paper and pencil, or use any application. If you don't want to keep track of your calories, at least start reading food labels and pay attention to serving size. It's smaller than you think for many popular foods. Doing so can help you start making better food choices. 

3. Be more active.

Now, let's talk about working out and staying active throughout the day. When it comes to exercise, find a program or activity that you enjoy. Exercising doesn't have to be a chore and you're more likely to stick to a fitness program if you really love what you're doing. If you need more organization and want a guide, joining a gym or hiring a personal trainer are great options. Personally, I've had success just by working out at home. There are a variety of programs available online through live streaming or you can consider purchasing a treadmill, bike or elliptical for your home. You can also find free exercises to try on YouTube and Vimeo. Getting a quality workout is easier than ever.

Remember, consistency is key. The number of days of exercise per week depends on your overall goal, fitness level, and schedule. Five to six days a week is great, but if you're a beginner, you'll need to work to be able to do it. If you are starting from not exercising at all, two or three days a week may be possible. Once you have a routine that works for you, try adding in another day and see how it goes. Work slowly so that you exercise five or six days a week. It's tempting to jump with both feet, pushing yourself to your limits right from the start. However, this is a surefire way to burn yourself out and increase your risk of injury. Losing weight takes time. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Furthermore, physical fitness and general health are lifelong pursuits.

With that said, it's also important to find ways to be more active throughout the day. This may mean:

Parking away from the store entrance.

Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Walk or bike to a destination instead of driving.

Walk after dinner.
