It is easier to lose weight in summer, because the weather itself promotes weight loss. A member of the International Federation of Functional Training, a spokesman for international congresses, a graduate student of the Department of Olympic and Professional Sports tells about how to lose weight as quickly as possible in summer:
Two groups of people who worked at different temperatures were studied: 1 group – at 27 degrees, 2 group – 15 degrees. People from the first group, after work ate much smaller portions, and they had no desire to have a snack. Therefore, losing weight in summer is much easier than in winter.
In summer there are many more opportunities for physical activity. Long walks, swimming, cycling, jogging and much more are a pleasant way to have a great time and burn calories at the same time. Also in the summer there are almost no very strong temperature changes, so the body has nothing to store extra calories.
So, swimming is the best way to lose weight in summer! In 30 minutes of swimming a person can burn up to 190 calories.
Also remember that you can travel on foot almost anywhere, and it is very good for health. A 30-minute walk burns 120 calories. And if you travel on foot in the mountains, the weight loss process will accelerate significantly. Running is a great workout for the muscles. Running activates and makes the muscles of the whole body, legs, arms and body work intensively. German doctor Ernest Van Aken was convinced that a long run at low intensity in combination with diet – the path to health.
Run every day
Run on a low heart rate
Run at a low intensity
When we train in the aerobic zone, first of all the cardiovascular system develops, the capillary network increases and long muscle fibers which are just responsible for endurance are processed. In addition, fats are used during training, which promotes weight loss.
Regular exercise (along with proper nutrition) leads to a decrease in adipose tissue and improve metabolism. Prolonged training improves mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are our everything! Mitochondria are something that gives us a lot of energy, and to improve their quality and quantity will help a simple fitness formula: 80% of slow running (for example, three times a week running slowly) and only once a week doing intense aerobics.
You want to progress quickly, be beautiful and slender, connect running uphill.
Running uphill requires more muscle strength. Runners need to lift their own body weight, and this is a kind of strength training with weights. Running training on stairs or slides – a real muscle training!
For fast and high-quality weight loss, I recommend significantly reducing the amount of carbohydrates, including useful ones. These include: fruits, cereals, breads, dried fruits, leave berries or one sour apple.
Eat more green salads, poultry, fish, seafood and drink plenty of clean still water. Reduce the amount of coffee, as it affects the level of cortisol – a stress hormone. If it is high, the fat will not be broken down.
And remember: only regular training and proper nutrition will lead to great results!
