It’s a fact. Most of us don’t eat enough fiber. Why should you increase your intake of fiber? Because it fills you up right, makes your metabolism move, and helps draw excess fats and toxins from your body. Conveniently enough, some of our favorite summertime foods are rich in fiber like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. You’ll also find it in cruciferous vegetables and summer-seasonal options like okra and asparagus. Live a healthy lifestyle by eating right.
Don’t eat refined carbs at night
Write it down
A food journal might be the least fun thing you can think of while you’re enjoying summer, but if you don’t keep tabs on your habits, you might succumb to gaining that weight back and bidding adieu to that summer beach bod. A more fun way is to photograph your meals. We eat with our eyes first so truly savor and relish those indulgent moments, but remember to balance them out too. Make sure you practice healthy eating most of the time and it will all work out.
Keep water with you at all times, especially if you’re in the sun. And if you notice the signs of dehydration like little to no urine, dizziness, or headache for example, start drinking more of it. You can always add a slice of lemon, cucumber, or other fruits to your purified water for a boost of flavor. Whatever you do though, don’t neglect your hydration or you’ll be neglecting your healthy lifestyle!
