Even thought it’s hot outside there is no reason to stop dieting! Summer is the perfect time to diet, since the heat can make you less hungry, however there are a few things you need to know that will help you diet in the summer that aren’t necessarily geared for the rest of the year.
ENJOY IN-SEASON FRUITS!
Summer means fresh, sweet, juicy peaches, berries, and watermelon. Don’t forget crisp cucumbers and green beans too. Make sure to get in decent servings of these fresh, in-season fruits and veggies every day.
SKIP THE SMOOTHIE
Smoothies sound like healthy food, don’t they? Sometimes they are NOT healthy with added sugar etc. If you’re buying a smoothie from a stand or restaurant, check the ingredients and ask for nutrition information to make sure you’re not wrecking your diet when you thought you were sticking to it.
BAN FAST FOOD
While you consider skipping the fast-food smoothies, you might also want to ban fast food! One fast food combo meal can contain all of the calories you’re supposed to eat in an entire day! Yes it’s that serious.
Well there you have it. These are 3 good things to keep in mind when dieting in this hot summer heat!
