Summers are here and after the careless and lazy winter regime, it’s time to head out for the beaches and lakes for a refreshing swim and some fun.
Everyone’s getting their swimsuits ready, but how many fit into them is another story. If you do, you are in shape so no problem.
However, when you just can’t get your swimsuit on, you will need to have a great diet plan at hand for this summer.
Here are a few tips for a healthy summer plan: Make it quick and easy. Fill your pantry and
refrigerator with organically cultivated fresh fruits and vegetables. Make it a fun time to explore
some unique cuisines simply made with seasonal flavours. Planning what you eat is necessary
to keep a check on what is nutritious and what needs to be taken in more quantities so that you
weigh less on that weighing scale. You want to shed that extra flab on your waist and it is easier
to do so in summers.
Eat Right: The plan that you make has to include more proteins and fewer carbohydrates. What
you eat is important and keeping it lighter is necessary for your body. Your metabolism has to
improve and that’s possible if you include multiple meals. Take smaller but more meals through
the day. Enjoy a variety of your favorite dishes made wisely to include protein rich and fibrous
food. You can have snacks or meals often for your metabolism to improve.
Fruits like blueberries, strawberries; tart berries etc are a rich source of proteins, vitamins and
antioxidants. These are highly fibrous fruits and help improve your immune system, maintain a
youthful brain and improve memory and learning abilities. You can make these fruits into
interesting dishes by adding fat free yogurt or adding them to salads to have a rich color and
Research shows that strawberries are useful in keeping blood sugar levels under control and
thus help fight diabetes. They are even helpful in providing your body vitamin C and minerals
like magnesium, potassium and calcium. You can add them and decorate a variety of
smoothies, cereals and granola with it. Adding fresh parsley can give your favourite dishes an
added flavour. They are a good source of beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, and lutein, which are
necessary for a healthy vision.
