Girls (and boys!), Summer is coming and we are at the ideal time to prepare our figures and feel physically and mentally healthy. Here I bring you some simple tips to achieve that much desired summer figure:
Regarding food: Be careful with the consumption of carbohydrates, especially those that are full of sugars and flours. But remember that not all carbohydrates are bad. There are complex carbohydrates that you can eat; for example, spinach, broccoli, zucchini, and lentils. These have fiber, protein, and are low in sugar, which are good diet options.
If you feel like eating a snack mid-morning or mid-afternoon, have a portion of Wonderful Pistachios on hand, since per serving they provide 3 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and 13 grams of unsaturated fats (good fats).).
Also, try to avoid high sugar drinks; this also includes sodas and energy drinks. Although it is true that they hydrate you, they are also so full of sugars that this counteracts any benefit they may bring. So let's drink a lot of water!
Regarding exercise: It is important to increase the time and intensity of cardiovascular exercise (walking, running, cycling, swimming, dancing), but don't just stay there. We must add resistance exercise (with weights) to tone and strengthen specific parts of the body. The idea is to pay attention to the whole body, including the arms, legs, buttocks and especially the abdomen. If you want to look good in that bikini, you have to hit those abs hard!
Regarding skin care:We can not forget to take care of our skin if we want our whole body to look healthy and healthy. Get hydrating daily, and regularly exfoliate your entire body to remove all impurities and dead cells. Remember that in summer we sweat more and these treatments could help your skin look better, fresher and more radiant. It is essential to use a good sunscreen at all times to avoid heat stroke and skin blemishes.
