Weight Loss Shouldn’t Take a Vacation!

How to Have a Summer Break without Taking a Break from Your Health!

 

If you’re tired of starting over, then stop giving up!

 

It’s easy for all of us to do. As soon as summer break rolls around, we tend to let our healthy habits fall by the wayside. Who has time for eating healthy when summer barbecues are weekend after weekend? Who wants to work out when there are pool parties and baseball games to go to?

 

No matter what your plans are for summer, one thing is for sure. If you don’t want to start from scratch with your health when fall rolls around, it’s important to keep your healthy habits going all summer long! Nathan Luoma, DC, chiropractic and weight-loss specialist at Gulf Coast UltraSlim wants to offer you tips on how you can have your health and your fun this summer without having to choose between the two.

 

Avoid Gaining Weight on Summer Break

 

While you might think that weight is mostly gained in the winter, the summer season is also a time many people see the number on the scale creeping upwards. Why? Because there are a number of social events that happen throughout the summer months, including:

 

  • Weddings

  • Picnics

  • Barbecues

  • Company outings

 

Not only is the food not the best (although delicious), but we also have a greater tendency to drink our calories during the summer months. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere—right?

 

It’s important to pay extra attention to those unhealthy summer traps in order to keep your health on track this summer!

 

Choose Your Beverages Wisely

 

High-calorie alcohol drinks are not the only temptations during the hot, summer days. When thirsty, you might not always want to grab water. Instead, you might choose sweet tea or lemonade. However, these traditional summer beverage do come with their fair share of empty calories, so it’s important to drink them only in moderation instead choosing water as your rehydration method of choice.

 

Choose Your Dessert Wisely

 

What’s better than a dreamy ice cream cone on a hot summer day? Yum!

 

Yet, while you might think you are doing a good job by choosing the “healthier” ice cream option (also known as “frozen yogurt”), you’re likely doing the opposite. In fact, most frozen yogurt options have not only a ton of sugar added, but many varieties have even more calories than the classic ice cream option!

 

So, when trying to make “healthy” switches this summer (such as frozen yogurt over ice cream), make sure the switch is actually a healthy one! Also, go easy on those toppings!

 

Choose Your Time of Day Wisely for Exercise

 

Are you wanting to take your workout outside this summer? We don’t blame you! Who wants to be stuck in the gym on a beautiful day?

 

However, be mindful of the temperature when taking your workout to the great outdoors, as extreme heat can cause you to become dehydrated if not careful. Make it a point to work out early in the morning (before 10 a.m.) or later in the afternoon (after 4 p.m.) to avoid exercising when the sun’s ultraviolet rays are the strongest.

 

Additionally, make sure to bring water with you so that you can replace any fluids lost through sweat during your workout and remain hydrated!
