Summer Weight Loss

Summer is right around the corner and rising temperatures means more skin! Get bikini ready with these simple and healthy weight loss tips to look good and feel good while doing it!


One of the summer's best treats, watermelon makes a great snack! Since a watermelon is essentially half water, it can help quench your thirst while satisfying your sweet tooth. Plus, it has few calories.


Quit buying all those carbonated, sugar drinks! Water is not only cheaper, but was healthier for you too. Water is better because it has absolutely zero calories, quenches your thirst better, and keeps you hydrated and cool.

Fresh Produce

Eating healthy doesn't have to be a difficult or expensive task. Summer is when all the berries and sweet fruit are in season. Save the apples and oranges for fall and indulge in strawberries, cherries, peaches, and more. Buy local produce from a farmer's market, which not only tends to be fresher than from a supermarket, but in many cases, it's cheaper.

Smaller Portions

Appetites generally decrease with warmer temps, so take advantage! Make sure you are watching your portions and try ordering and making smaller portions. Try an appetizer instead of an entre, split a meal with a friend, or order a half salad instead of the full. Eat slow and savor your food - you'll be surprised to find just how little food it can take to make you feel full.

Weight Loss Supplements

When used correctly, a weight loss supplement (such as Akavar 20/50) can be a great tool in kick starting weight loss and healthy living. Using a supplement to lose those first couple pounds is great motivation to get in gear! Start implementing healthy eating habits and get daily exercise to reach your long-term weight loss goals.

The Great Outdoors

The summer is a time to enjoy the great outdoors! Take advantage of the great weather and start enjoying the outdoors. There are endless possibilities when it comes to outdoor fun, from hiking to biking to camping to tennis to swimming. Find something you enjoy doing and start burning the calories!
