Tips to Getting Summer Fit in 6 Weeks

Do you want to get fit for the summer? Of course, you do. It will be a time to flaunt your tightly toned body and flex your muscles at the beach. More than that, it will be about feeling and looking good, for yourself.

You might be sceptical and say, “what good is six weeks going to do?” Well, six weeks is quite enough time to get back into shape, or, at least, lay robust ground work for your journey there.But the trick is that you have to start off immediately.

Don’t have a plan to start off? Don’t go in head first. Starting to plan is planning to start, which is way better than putting it off.

Don’t Put It Off

The moment you start to say, I’ll worry about getting fit later, that’s when you lose half the battle. To get fit, you need commitment. And not just for one week when you’ll be crash dieting your way through those pounds. That strategy is destined for failure as you’ll be left more deprived of nutrients, like those available in healthy beef recipes. Instead, you’ll crave to switch to junk food at the first opportunity you get, as soon as that grueling one week is over.

To avoid this from happening, you need to be consistent and incorporate fitness into your lifestyle. This is easier said than done, but at least 6 weeks will count as a habit formation period where you can get accustomed to the healthy habits you pick up.

Here are some tips to get fit before summer rolls around.

1.  Exercise and Diet are Two Pieces of the Fitness Puzzle

Focusing on one, instead of the other, will leave you intensely demotivated and possibly at a worse position than when you started. You need to understand how losing fat works. There are about 3500 calories in a pound so you need to create a shortage to lose those fat calories.

As long as you burn more than you take in, the balance tips in the favour of weight loss. When you stop burning, you start to gain. That’s why experts say that a sedentary lifestyle is bad for our health.

There needs to be a real focus on the “calorie burning” aspect in the 6 weeks so that you get comfortable with the idea and start to do it on your own. The TeamOneFitness shred challenge takes into account, the need to focus on burning calories while making sure you get the right nutrients needed for your body to be able to continue maintaining itself into the long run.

Increasing Proteins and Reducing Grains

We shortly touched upon the proteins available in beef in a paragraph above. But you need to generally increase the uptake of proteins through shakes and greens and stay away from breads and grains such as rice.

The reason is that grains and breads are part of the carbohydrates which contribute significantly to fat in the belly area. You have to let them go and concentrate on nutrient-rich options such as steaks made from organic, grass fed meat.
