The last few weeks I have been feeling quite defensive about my second least favorite subject…my weight.* In the past when I was unkindly given unsolicited advice about my body and weight I would resentfully diet and exercise, restricting my diet to a point that was just unpleasant for all around. As one would expect, NO weight was loss, I only had a grumpy self and worse relationship to food. The last few weeks I have been fighting the feeling and can happily say that instead of the normal response: defensive and binging, I have embraced me (as much as I honestly able) and just made small steps.
I was still smarting from the latest remarks when I checked my e-mail and found information from Lichi Super Fruit Publicity Coordinator Amanda, and tips to help me get ready for summer.
1. Amp up the cardio!
Grab your running shoes and hit the pavement. Cardiovascular activities are the best (and quickest) ways to burn off that layer of winter weight your body is still holding on to. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate cardio exercise, six times a week, to get in optimal shape. Cardio activities we love that keep us coming back for more: spinning, Zumba, tennis, and kickboxing.
2. Eat more greens.
To rejuvenate and refresh your body, add more green produce into your diet. Leafy greens like Kale, Dandelion Greens, Watercress, Arugula, and Spinach work well in salads and give you a hefty amount of vitamin C, calcium, iron, and fiber.
3. Lay off the soda.
Stay away from the soda if you want to keep bloat to a minimum. Soda contains caffeine, which acts as a diuretic, making your kidneys work harder to get rid of the excess sugar. Instead, replenish your body with water and refresh your entire system.
4. Cut out the added sugar.
Eating foods rich in added sugar spikes blood sugar levels and hinders your body’s ability to burn fat. It also promotes inflammation in the body, which can leave you bloated and feeling lethargic. Be sure to read the labels and check for hidden sugars like high fructose corn syrup and dextrose.
5. Supplement your diet with Lichi Super Fruit!
