Summer is upon us, and as you prepare to enjoy the heat with your friends and family, you just can’t help but wonder: “Am I ready to show off my exercise results?” If not, don’t worry. The solution is as easy as 1-2-3! By following these easy tips, you’ll be ready for summer in no time!

Tip 1: Cleanse your body. If you have been enjoying a few too many extra calories on the weekends or grabbing takeout on the way home from work, keep in mind that these tasty yet toxic foods remain in your body longer than you think. This creates a buildup of toxins in your digestive system. The food you place in your body is an exact mirror of your energy outcome. Starting a cleansing and fat burning system is a terrific way to kick off your summer eating habits and effectively achieve that summer body you are looking for. For more information on nutritional cleansing, contact one of our doctors and ask about the Isagenix cleansing system.

Tip 2: Work it out. What you eat on a daily basis isn’t the only factor in weight-loss success – exercise is huge! When putting together an exercise routine, it’s important to find an activity that moves you. Try a bike ride or strengthening your muscles through weightlifting. Yoga or a walk on the treadmill is ideal if you prefer a slower pace. Studies show you are more likely to lose weight when working out with a pal, so hit the gym with your BFF. If you don’t have a gym membership, there are endless resources of workout videos available online.

Tip 3: Plan ahead for increased energy. To build a healthy and strong summer body, it is important to maintain your weight by being aware of the food you put in your body. In order to be successful, plan your eating and workout regimen ahead of time. Take 30 minutes per week to sit down and map out your next seven days. Just like budgeting your finances for success, the same is true for food and exercise planning. Plan sensible meals that are high in protein and fiber and contain a healthy balance of complete carbohydrates and healthy fats.
