Your Best Beach Body – Fat loss for looking good. Tips to look your best and have your best bikini body.
Yes, it is that time of year again – Springtime and gulp…We are soon heading into summer. Time to dust off the beach chair, check your summer wardrobe and make sure that teeny weeny bikini still fits. Chances are you probably aren’t as happy looking at your reflection in the mirror after the winter months, where your lily white legs are like Rudolph’s nose and are glowing in the dark ..and to top it off you have discovered a few extra dimples downstairs.. (that you swear weren’t there last year). Hmm, what to do?
Well, there is always light at the end of the tunnel and I have come up with a bit of a game plan to help get back your “Bikini Confidence”. Toning up is always the best way to start feeling your best and boost your confidence. There are two factors that will assist you in your toning up mission.
Yep, I have said it before and I will say it again. Cut out sugar and refined wheat products and you will be thanking me forever (feel free to send me your success stories). Of course everything in moderation is a good rule but if you follow this suggestion for six weeks this will definitely kick start your body into a finely tuned machine. Eat lean foods like tuna, lean chicken/turkey breast, oatmeal and fish. Avoid the following:
Try this daily meal aka The Bikini Diet:
Meal Standard 4oz protein, 1/2-1cup veggies, 1/2cup carbs, 1/4 fruit
No high carbs/starches or fruits after meal 3
Meal 1: ½ cup oatmeal with 1/4 fruit, 5 egg whites w/ spinach & other veggies
Meal 2: ½ cup PB2 w/celery sticks and protein drink
Meal 3: Chicken/Fish and Spinach and some sweet potatoes
Meal 4: Chicken and green beans
Meal 5: Chicken/Fish salad of spinach and broccoli slaw
Meal 6: FF Cottage cheese or protein shake if you’re still hungry.
Cardio and Strength Training
Try 30 minutes twice a week. Step it up with interval training. Yes, 3 days x 20 minutes (intense) will also get that jiggle moving. With strength training , try to progress yourself every week a little harder; a few more repetitions will help your bikini body mission.
Unfortunately, women are the biggest victims of being good at the first two then failing badly on the MOST important one: strength training. Women are afraid of getting bulky but the truth of the matter is it is very difficult for women to get bulky due to the lack of testosterone in our bodies. This is why men often take testosterone supplements to gain muscle mass. So fear not; embrace strength training and you will really start to see those white thighs firm up.
