A Guide To Looking And Feeling Healthy For Less This Summer
Transform your lifestyle and opt for the most beneficial options available to you. Start by reminding yourself why you want to get healthier, your intentions and your plan to make it happen. Start by drawing up a plan that you can review, and remind yourself of your progress over the next coming weeks. Begin with the basics and stock your cupboard and fridge full of fresh vegetables, and healthy options instead of easy snacks. Look for foods that are low in sugar and high in good fats and protein, such as avocados, low carb bread (that is also low in sugar – always be on the lookout), beans and pulses, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, nuts and seeds, and eggs. If you’re vegan, then try tofu and edamame beans instead.
Get Fighting Fit
You can nourish your body and enjoy luxury for less by signing up to join low cost gyms that offer luxury amenities such as non-GMO-smoothie bars, infrared saunas, steam rooms, hydromassage, and more for under $40/a month. What more could you ask for? Pamper yourself after an intense session in the gym or the pool, and relax in the sauna to let the stress and strain dissipate from your body. Sweating encourages you to expel toxins related to disease, so get working out in the gym and one step closer to achieving your health goals for the summer.
Chemical peels involve brushing liquids over your face in order to remove dead skin cells from the epidermis and stimulate the growth of new ones. As a result, they can make your skin look clearer, brighter and reenergized. Always be sure to wear sun cream during the warmest months of the year as the UV from the sun can be extremely damaging to your health.
Avoid excess sugar in your diet by choosing water to drink instead of carbonated drinks like Coca-Cola and lemonade. Fruit juices can also be shockingly high in sugars and additives, so always check the label to be sure just how much extra sugar you’re unknowingly adding to your diet. Drinking water helps the body to maintain its balance of fluids and enables normal functioning such as good digestion, absorption, circulation, and the creation of saliva. It’s recommended that you drink at least two liters of water a day to help you pass toxins through urination.
Get Your Greens
Dark green leafy vegetables are good sources of vitamin A, C, K, folate, dietary fiber, and minerals like iron and calcium. If you’re struggling to eat leafy greens, then find ways of getting them into your diet without having to consume leaf by leaf. You can purchase supplements that contain the minerals you need in capsule form, or you can blend these greens with fruits like bananas, apples, and berries in order to make a sweet tasting smoothie to start your day right. Add an extra portion of greens to every meal, and be sure to eat them first so to avoid filling up on other food groups. Avoid empty calories in foods that offer little to no nutritional value, and consume complex carbohydrates found in sweet potatoes, oatmeal, brown rice, and 100% whole wheat bread.
