You don’t need to bust ass for months to look like a goddess in a bikini. With these quick and easy tricks, your beach body will earn some serious stares.
For a long time, drinking water has been thought to help with weight loss. In fact, 30–59% of US adults who try to lose weight increase their water intake. Many studies show that drinking more water may benefit weight loss and maintenance.
BE STRATEGIC WITH ACCESSORIES
Slip on wedges instead of flip flops.
Wear a drop necklace to bring people’s focus to your cleavage.
Try a flattering cover-up for your shape.
BREAK UP WITH CARBS
When you first break up with Carbs, you may experience the following:
You will feel morally superior, because your friends have convinced you that Carb was evil — bringing you down, making you fat, and bloating you up. You may start to feel cool and socially interesting. Now you too can be like your other single carb-free friends and hit the protein-only dating scene. In fact, you can’t wait to publically snub the bread basket at your next dinner out.
You will start to shed weight. Yay! But the weight will not be the belt-tightening, fervently-post-your-self-portrait-on-Facebook kind of weight loss. Instead, no matter how tough you think you are, you will lose water. Not through the obligatory tear-shedding (or is that just what happens to me?) Here, you will lose it through pee. Each gram of glycogen (carbohydrate stores) is bound with 3 grams of water, so when you deplete these carb bank accounts, which typically takes 2 days, you can lose up to 5-6 pounds in one week. If you’ve ever been that person who switch out the water jug at the cooler, you’ll know that water weighs a lot. Yes, you will lose weight. The majority of this is just water, and along with it, all the energy that the water was attached to.
STRUT LIKE A MODEL
LOSE WEIGHT WHILE YOU SLEEP
That’s right; one of the most effective ways to shift those pounds while you sleep is to quite simply get more of it. With our hectic schedules nowadays sleep is often neglected, but if you want to lose weight that needs to change. Don’t believe us? A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that overweight people on average got 16 minutes less sleep per day than their regular-weight counterparts. It doesn’t sound like very long, but over time that difference builds up.
So why does sleep help keep you slim? It’s all to do with the hormones leptin and ghrelin. Leptin helps to regulate your energy levels and keep your appetite low, while ghrelin stimulates hunger and often initiates the need to eat. The results of a study conducted at the University of Wisconsin found that participants who got more sleep had reduced ghrelin and increased leptin levels, which helped to control their appetites throughout the day.
GET A PERKY BUTT
Perky butts are not built in a day, or even in a week. You’ll have to workout consistently over a period of time to achieve your goal. Though the gluteus maximus is actually the largest muscle in your body, it is only one of the glute muscles. You’ll also have to target the gluteus medius and minimus so that your entire butt will become more shapely. You may do one or two glute exercises as part of a full-body workout routine, or do them all for an intense butt workout. Start today!!!
SLIM YOUR THIGHS
Avoid exercises such as squats, lunges, leg curls, stiff-legged deadlifts, leg extensions and calf raises, especially with heavy weights for now. They DO NOT slim thighs. A piece of cardio machinery you would do well to avoid is the Stairmaster/ step machine. Although these exercise are often promoted to make thighs smaller, they actually target thigh muscles and can make them bigger. Weight training make muscle fibers larger. You can do these exercises once you have striped fat from your thighs and have a clearer idea of how muscular your thighs are.
FLATTEN YOUR TUMMY
Eat at this magic hour
“You must eat a snack that contains protein between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Go for a protein bar, a piece of low-fat cheese, or some almonds with an organic apple.
No matter what, do not miss that snack. It’s important because it boosts metabolism and balances blood sugar. The lower you keep your blood sugar, the lower you keep your insulin, and insulin makes you store fat around your middle. Eating every three to four hours will keep your blood sugar even, but many people tend to go five or six hours between lunch and dinner without eating.”
