Like many people, you probably want to get in shape as the summer season nears. Even if you are generally satisfied with your physical appearance right now, there are likely areas of your body that you wish looked a bit better. If you’re looking for a quick fix with long-lasting results, Dr. William Jervis offers a variety of body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck surgery at his Walnut Creek practice.
If you’re still debating which cosmetic treatment is right for you, we also have some tips that can help you get your body summer ready.
Eat Plenty of Fruits and Vegetables
Filling your diet with fresh, low-calorie fruits and vegetables is not only healthy, but it is one of the fastest ways to improve the appearance of your body. By getting your daily servings of these nutritious foods and avoiding refined carbohydrates like bread, pasta, and sugar, you will feel fuller longer and see results in as little as two weeks.
While you’ve heard that drinking eight, eight-ounce glasses of water per day is necessary for optimal hydration, drinking water has other benefits as well. Drinking water while avoiding soda and alcohol will help you slim down by drastically reducing the amount of bloating in your stomach.
Resting is crucial to your overall health and metabolism. However, making sure that you get the right amount of sleep each night can be tricky. And while there is a fine line between too much and not enough, you should be getting at least six hours of sleep per night.
Give Yoga a Go
Yoga will make your body noticeably more limber and strong. As little as 15 minutes, three times a week is sufficient to help you feel less stressed while you work on looking your best.
Even just brisk walking has been proven to enhance health and longevity. Don’ t forget to stand up and move around at least once each hour for the same reason.
