Women Are Advised Not To Give Up Diet Because of Summer
Fitness gurus say summer time is the best time for weight loss and women are asked not to give up diet.
Fitness expert Ashley Marriott and Marc L. Paulsen, MD want women to know that the Spring and Summer times are the periods when a women's body is actually working in concert with them to lose weight - versus in the fall and winter when the body is sending out messages to pack it on.
Women, they say, who get discouraged because they didn't meet their goals by their start-of-Summer deadline may be selling themselves short. Summertime is the time when the body's hormones are actively motivating their bodies to get more active, increase their metabolism and burn that excess fat. So, weight loss during this period can actually be far easier.
The authors advise the following on diet and weight loss:
Examine your goal to insure that it's realistic. Some fitness programs promise one pound or greater of weight loss per day, which is unhealthy, unrealistic and potentially dangerous. Use the Size 2 for Life frame-adjusted formula to set a realistic goal.
Examine your diet and, in most cases, those little "demon saboteurs" will become obvious (alcohol, chips, habitual nibbling, etc). Substitute healthy activities and exercise for habitual eating, but don't push yourself too fast or too hard. Nothing will short-circuit a weight loss program faster than an injury.
Approach each day with a positive attitude regardless of any previous setbacks or disappointments.
