So you’ve booked your tickets to the Bahamas and plan on wearing your itsy bitsy brand new polka dotted bikini on those beautiful sun soaked beaches. The only catch is you have exactly 1 month to get your body in bikini mode.
Here are a few helpful tips and tricks to help you lose weight faster, burn calories quicker and get your bikini-wearing body ready in no time –
- Hit the gym – whether you’re a stay at home mom or dad or you have a full-time job, make it a point to include at least 30-45 minutes of exercise into your daily routine every day. Exercise is not only helpful in achieving your weight loss goals but will keep you feeling fit and healthy overall. Go for a brisk walk, hit the gym, join a yoga or dance class – anything that will get those muscles moving and fat burning. Here are the best ab exercises of all time.
- Watch your diet – as painful as it is to give up some of the foods that you love the most, watching what you eat goes a long way in burning calories faster. Include more vegetables, fruits and lean meat to your diet and cut out carbs and sugar. You’ll notice the change on your weighing scale soon enough.
- Drink more water – increase your daily water intake from 8 glasses a day to at least 12 glasses a day. Drinking more water increases your metabolism which helps your burn calories faster and keeps you feeling full reducing dangerous food cravings. Chugging down a full glass of water right before a meal will decrease your food intake by 20-30%. Here are ways to sneak water into your diet.
