Summer is here, and everyone wants to get in shape. The thing is, no matter how hard you try, it seems your efforts are futile and nothing works. These are the 5 BEST ways to lose body fat FAST during the Summer.
- Select carbs cautiously
Highly refined carbohydrates spike blood-sugar levels and encourages pancreas to produce insulin. To prevent this, try taking refined carbs for slow-burning, unrefined ones (jumbo oats, brown basmati rice, stone-ground wholemeal bread).
2. Fight the 50/50s
Food with a 50:50 fat:sugar ratio interferes with our mechanisms of self-regulation. This occurs with snacks like: cheesecake, donuts, and fudge brownies.
3. Eat Soup
Soup is a great appetite suppressant since it consists of a hunger-busting combination of liquids and solids. Consume before a meal to lower overall calorie intake by up to around 20, in comparison to a meal without soup.
4. Go on portion control
We tend to eat approximately 92% of the food we serve ourselves; it would be best to not eat everything on your plate, or maybe try to have a smaller serving.
5. Change coffee order
Despite coffee not necessarily being a bad thing, the sugar and dairy can be real calorie traps. For the next six weeks or so, try to opt out a latte for black coffee, green tea, or herb tea.
