With the summer approaching there can be a lot of anticipation about getting back into shorts and skirts again.  Since your legs haven’t seen the light of day in almost a year and you’ve been likely eating more during the winter months, you may start to dread putting on a bathing suit.

However, it’s not too late to get started in order to get your summer bod.  Here are some of the best tips for getting into shape for the summer and looking hot in no time.

Cardio

Doing a cardio workout is a great way to burn fat.  By working out hard at least 3 times a week you’ll find that you’ll start to drop weight faster than just diet alone.

Make sure that when you do cardio you’re working hard enough that you’re out of breath and find it difficult to talk comfortably.  This level of breathing is usually the best indication that you’re getting in a workout that will make a difference in the long run.

Cut Out Sugar

Sugar is one of those things that will make a big difference in your overall physique.  When you eat a lot of sugar you not only feel hungry faster, but you’re filling your body with empty calories which will, in turn, make you gain weight.

Try to cut it out entirely for a few months and you’d be shocked at the weight loss results that it can produce.

Get a Diet App

By purchasing an app which will assist you in counting calories and inputting calories burned by doing exercise.  This is a lot more motivating than old traditional diet methods like using a paper and calculator throughout the day to keep track of your food diary.

The nice thing about diet apps is that you can find thousands of foods which are already inputted into the system rather than having to individually input each item’s macronutrients

Walk To Work

Making the effort of walking to work every day will burn hundreds of calories.  You’ll feel better and find that doing this in addition to your diet and exercise will kickstart your weight loss and get you to your goal loss much sooner.

You may want to purchase a step counter like a Fitbit in order to stay motivated.  Having a daily goal to aim for as well as being able to see exactly how many calories you burned will make you much more motivated to keep going.

You can even connect with other friends and compete for who gets the most amount of steps in a day. This extra competitive edge is an encouraging and fun way to exercise as a team between friends and family members.
