How To Succeed With A Summer Weight Loss Diet

Author : Ram Gupta

Weight loss may be your goal for the season, or perhaps even the year, but you cannot escape from the fact that summer has the power to challenge your resolve. It's the season of vacations, beach holidays and parties. With all the fun and revelries, come the inevitable indulgences, and an unrestricted number of calories go down your system. Before you know it, you put on loads of weight. However, it is possible to escape this entire cycle, even while you have fun. Here are some tips for an effective summer weight loss diet plan.

Drink a Lot of Water

The biggest risk you run in summer is dehydration. When you are out having fun, it is easy to forget your body's simplest need: water. Even if you are not doing any strenuous physical exercise, your body loses water when it is hot, and if you don't replenish, your body's metabolism slows down. This means that you burn less calories, and run a greater risk of putting on weight.

You may even misinterpret thirst as hunger, and overeat. To prevent these weight gain disasters, keep water handy at all times and keep sipping. This is the simplest and one of the most essential aspects of a weight loss diet.

Have Fresh Fruits

Summer is the season for berries and tropical fruits, so take advantage of the fact! Fruits have high nutritive content, are rich in fiber, can keep you full for a while and are relatively low in calories. Also, eating fresh fruit is a lot healthier and more conducive to a weight loss diet than sipping a fruit juice, a sweetened smoothie or a mock-tail.

Control your Holiday Portions

Regulation and control are not words that gel well with the mood of a holiday. This is why it is best to give yourself some latitude. So, if you are at a destination where a cheesy lasagna is the specialty, go ahead and enjoy it. However, enjoy it within limits. Portion control is the best way to enjoy different tastes and flavors, and still control your calorie intake. So, share your dish with your friend or partner rather than wolfing down a plate-full yourself.

Some Healthy Eating is Possible

Another thing that you can do is try to make sure that there is some healthy component to every meal, which is also low in calories. So, instead of a portion of fries with your meal, have a portion of steamed vegetables. In fact, if you can commit to yourself that you will have one meal in the day that is completely healthy and low in calories, you have the best chance of success with your summer weight loss diet.

Don't Skip Meals

People have the tendency to skip a meal out of guilt, especially after a calorie-rich indulgence. However, this will not help you lose weight fast or even control it, if done on a regular basis. You will only confuse your body, and it will respond with a sluggish metabolism and low energy levels. These are precisely the consequences you want to avoid on your holiday.

Finally, the success of your summer weight loss diet will largely depend on how well you control your intake of alcohol. Alcohol is rich in calories, and cocktails are generally all out calorie bombs. So, sip your drink slowly, and stick to no more than one or two small ones for the evening.

With these simple steps, you will be able to cut down 500-600 calories in a day, a major saving as far as your summer weight loss diet plan goes.
