When summer comes, the race to achieve a bikini body is on. While exercising and eating healthy is the best way, there are several other things that you can do to achieve that perfect beach body.
Here are some of them.
- Eat More Fiber
For every 10 grams of fiber that you eat every day, you will carry an almost 4% less abdominal fat. So, include plenty of fiber in your meals.
The best way to get your fiber intake is from eating vegetables like fruit and beans. As an added benefit, eating lots of fiber will make you feel full longer so you’re less likely to overeat.
- Be Mindful of Your Salt Intake
If you consume a lot of salt, your body will retain lots of fluid. This will increase your water weight and make you feel bloated.
Not all salt is bad, for as long as you don’t overdo it. Avoid eating lots of processed foods and when it comes to cooking, try to add only a small amount of salt.
- Avoid Soda
Remember that all that sugar from the soda you drink will have a negative impact not only on your body but on your overall health too.
The empty calories that these unhealthy beverages bring will go straight to your belly, which makes it difficult to achieve that perfect beach body.
