Spring is a lot of people’s favorite season because of the revival of the nature and the warmer weather after the cold winter. Spring is also the best time of the year to lose weight, not only because it is before the summer season when a lot of people are going to head for the beach, but also because the season predisposes people to do so. To show you that weight loss is very easy during the spring, we have prepared for you a few tips and reasons why it is so. Check them out!
#1 Warmer days – more time for jogging
One of the reasons a lot of people postpone losing weight in the winter is that the weather is too cold and they do not want to exercise out in the park, for example. Since spring days are warmer and longer, and there is no snow which to make jogging in the park unpleasant, one has more time to spend outside exercising.
You can go to the park for a run after work and it will still be sunny, or you can opt for other sports out in the open which you prefer. One thing is for sure – warmer and sunnier weather makes one’s desire for exercising bigger, thus they will keep fit and managed to lose weight this way.
#2 Try out some detox drinks with seasonal fruits
Winter is a season which predisposes people to drinking hot beverages, like cocoa and tea, whereas the warmer spring weather signals for some cooler drinks. Spring is a great time to add to your diet some detox drinks which can be a combination of cold water and some pieces of seasonal fruits.
You can prepare yourself such drinks with papaya, different types of berries, especially people’s favorite strawberry. You can have different fruit mixes in a jug, which you also need to fill with water and some amount of fresh lemon juice and you can have your detox drink all day long. These drinks will satisfy your appetite to an extent and will give you plenty of energy.
#3 Have plenty of fresh salads
Spring time offers not only a fruit diversity but also a vegetable one. There are a lot of fresh vegetables that one can have during the spring, like asparagus, artichokes, cauliflower, radishes, turnips, Brussels sprouts and of course, a lot of people’s favorite leafy green vegetables.
This vegetable diversity helps people prepare a lot of low fat meals, like salads and main course meals, which will help one losing weight by giving them the energy they need to go through their daily tasks without feeling hungry.
#4 Longer days – more time outside
Spring days are longer than winter ones and this gives people more opportunities to spend the day outside and be more active. In the winter people do not want to go out much if it is too cold.
A lot prefer to stay at home and watch TV, but the longer sunny days in spring predispose one to spend more time outside and be more active. Even if you decide to go for a walk in the park, it will still be better for your body than lying around your house watching TV.
#5 Have a plan
Another thing that you can have in mind if you want to lose weight is to set yourself a goal and to prepare a plan. Make sure you set some realistic goal – losing 20 kilos for a month is not that much realistic. You also can make a list of things you need to do daily, like the number of glasses of water you need to drink, the types of foods that you need to have, and the amount of exercises that you need to do.
In the evening you can write in your diary whether you have completed all of the tasks and if you have not, then either they are too difficult for you and you have set the bar too high for yourself and you need to make another plan, or maybe you will see that you are too lazy and if you keep breaking your plan, you will not reach the desired results. After all, you are the person who can make it work.
