Summer is just around the corner. Have you gotten the body you want to start swimsuit season? Millions of people work towards their goals of losing weight and getting in shape, but there isn’t always enough time in the day. The key is to be smart with how you approach weight loss. Diet and exercise can help you get to your perfect beach body, but only if they are done in the right way. Customized plans can help you reach your beach body goals faster than other methods. Let us help you with some tips to help push you towards your perfect beach body!

 

Dieting Correctly

When starting any diet or exercise program, always check with your medical professional to assess your health. We do these assessments in our office, as we are a chiropractic rehabilitation center. Many people have injuries, surgeries, chronic conditions and more that may prevent them from dieting and exercising how they would like. However, we can help our patients heal and find relief from chronic symptoms as they work towards a healthier body. Diet is a major part of healing and a major part of losing healthy weight.

 

Don’t ever quit certain food groups cold turkey. You need 6 essential nutrients every day to achieve weight loss success: protein, fat, carbs, vitamins, minerals, and water. If you lack one of these key nutrients, it may be why you have your chronic condition, daily low-grade symptoms or why you struggle to lose weight. When dieting, you want to:

  • Reduce or cut out sugar products. Sugar will only make you gain or hold onto weight.
  • Switch to water. If you drink sodas, juices and carbonated beverages, switching to only drinking water can help you drop the pounds faster.
  • Eat several servings of veggies and fruit each day. Focus especially on the veggies, as these are a healthier source of carbs for energy.
  • Get enough protein. Not enough people get protein, which is vital to your brain and body functioning and building muscle properly.
  • Get a nutritional assessment in-office to test for nutrient deficiencies that can make weight loss difficult. Achieving a balanced diet with help will get your body to where you want it to be.

Exercise for Your Body

Exercise is also key for weight loss. Instead of spending hours at the gym (which can be effective), use your time wisely. H.I.I.T. training is a great way to lose weight quick in just a few weeks. This stands for High Intensity Interval Training and involves doing exercises for a 30-60 seconds as hard as you can, with 10-20 seconds of rest. These exercises keep your heart pumping and can burn way more calories than simply running. Make sure you get professional, chiropractic help to work around injuries and chronic conditions throughout your exercise.

 

Customized Help for Faster Results

How do all those celebrities get their amazing beach bodies? You can bet that most of them are getting customized diet and exercise plans made for their body type and health conditions. Patients can get these types of plans at physical and chiropractic rehabilitation centers such as ours. You meet with a professional to receive a nutritional assessment and we record your full medical history.

 

A nutritional assessment will test your blood for nutrient deficiencies, which can cause chronic health problems and problems losing weight. We can also test for fat deposits in your body using gentle electrical tests so that we know what areas to target for maximum weight loss. After a full assessment, you will leave from your first appointment with a customized diet and exercise plan that will help you get the beach body you want.

 

Tips for a Faster Beach Body

It’s great to commit yourself to a diet and exercise regimen, however, what do you do in the meantime to appear slimmer? You can:

  • Drink lots of water. The more water you drink, the more energy you will have, which can boost metabolism and burn extra calories.
  • Dress consciously. Wear clothes that aren’t tight-fitting around your middle if that’s a trouble area for you. Wear vertical stripes instead of horizontal, as horizontal ones can make you look shorter and larger. Use shoes with a bit of a heel to make the legs appear longer and slimmer, etc.
  • Don’t slouch! Sit and stand up straight to elongate your body.
  • Sleep at least 6-8 hours to have good metabolism.
  • Don’t eat late at night. Eat your meals earlier in the day and stop about 2 hours before bedtime. Then, don’t eat calories during the night.
  • Be confident! No matter how big or small your body is, your confidence will make a big difference in how others see you.

Additional Aids

People are busy, and we know this. Not every person has 3 hours a day to dedicate to hitting a gym. Thank goodness H.I.I.T. training and similar exercises exist! However, there are also diet aids that can help fat-target and contour areas that need the most work. We’re talking about the love handles, thighs, stomach, arms, and back. At our office, we provide nutrition and exercise help, but we also provide services such as Laser-Like Lipo. This is modern technology that uses gentle laser light in areas of fat deposits. We place the laser light on your skin, where it heats the fat below it using near-infrared light waves. Your fat melts in these areas much like what happens when you exercise. It is then removed by the body through the lymphatic and digestive systems.

 

If you are working towards your beach body, utilize every service and tip you can if you want fast results. If you don’t want to waste your time on diets that aren’t effective, call Olathe Chiropractic today at (913) 732-0087 for a customized health plan to achieve your best beach body!
