The swim suit season is fast approaching so it is time to get in shape fast. The good news is that you can slim down and shape up in as little as four to eight weeks.
Start by incorporating just 30 minutes of cardio activity at least five days a week, strength training two to three days a week, and rest on one day. This combination will help burn fat and create muscle tone. The secret to success is to choose activities that you enjoy doing.
It is important to have four to five small meals throughout the day and avoid processed foods as they contain lots of added sugars and salts. Have your last meal of the day at least three hours before bed and drink a glass of water before and during meals to help with digestion and appetite control. Hydration is a very important key to weight loss and toning as water helps to flush toxins from the body, and just two per cent dehydration can have a major impact on performance and concentration. You should consume at least three to four litres of water per
day.
