Summertime is the season for shedding body fat.
While you can lose body fat during any months you choose, the summer is when most people decide to do so.
Well, most people wear less clothes during the summer months, attending outdoor pool parties, going to the beach, or just reallllly enjoying the weather.
I want to give you 3 tips that can contribute to your calorie deficit to help you lose body fat immediately.
Tip 1-Cut the Fat to Cut the Fat
Decreasing your fat intake is an easy way to cut calories. No, I don’t want you to cut out all of your fat intake, because fat is delicious and is also required for survival.
With this being said, an easy way to improve body composition is to be mindful of your fat intake.
Instead of cooking with butter and excess oils, try using a cooking spray instead. I like coconut oil spray a lot. If you normally prepare each of your meals with oil, let’s say only 1 tbsp each time, you’re adding an extra 120 calories. 5 meals a day and you’re racking up roughly 600 calories just from cooking with added fat.
So, when you cook on the stove, or bake chicken in the over, try swapping out added fats for a 0 calorie cooking spray. You’ll create an immediate deficit without even changing what you’re eating.
Tip 2-Stick to Calorie Free Beverages
Another great way to save on extra calories is to make sure you aren’t consuming unnecessary calories from beverages.
This means your Mocha Venti whipped cream iced latte from Starbucks probably isn’t the greatest choice of beverage. While you certainly can enjoy such drinks on occasion, I recommend sticking to water, tea, coffee, and water (yes more water).
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Water helps to make us feel full, which can curb appetite and prevent us from overeating. A general guideline is to drink half your body weight in ounces. Every. Single. Day.
If you love drinking beverages with flavor, try selter water, powerade zero or another calorie free flavoring of your choice.
Save your liquid calories for those adult beverages at your cookouts and bbqs 🙂 .
Tip 3- Add Some Cardio to Increase Calorie Expenditure
An easy way to contribute to your calorie deficit is to add some cardio into your current exercise routine.
You can choose what kind of cardio you do. It can be running, biking, swimming, circuit training, walking on an incline treadmill. It can be fast or slow. The point is, adding some cardio for at least 20-30 minutes a couple extra days a week will add to your weekly deficit.
Try mixing up longer duration slower forms of cardio, and shorter, higher intensity methods.
