Did You Know That The Average Person Gains 11 Pounds Within Five Months Of Finishing A Diet?

So... what are the key things you need to do, to get beach body ready and keep it off? You can make small adjustments to your lifestyle to get you there. It doesn't have to be a chore at all. With these few simple changes, it will get you bikini ready in no time.

Buy a smaller plate: I know it sounds silly, but it really works! Buying yourself smaller plates and having a full plate of food using your new plate instantly reduces the amount of calories you are consuming. Easy!


Drink hot water with lemon: OK at first the taste isn't that great but after a while you do get used to it. If you really don't like it, just add a little honey. The best time to have this is first thing in the morning. The benefits are massive... you really won't regret it.  It is a natural daily detox. It flushes your body and most importantly, your digestive system. Often your body retains toxins from processed food and alcohol which can actually cause you to retain body fat. So drinking this daily will rid you of those toxins and help you lose body fat easier. It's also a great source of Vitamin C and therefore can help your immune system. Plus, it gets you started on your daily water in-take.


Drink water: You need to aim for 2-3 litres of water a day. This also helps flush your body and it stops you feeling hungry mid meal and reaching for those cheeky unhealthy snacks.


Keep it fresh: Stick to fresh meat, vegetables, and fruit. Try to avoid anything processed. Remember what I said about processed food and toxins? Processed food can also have added sugar. Literally aim for 'meat and two veg' on your new smaller plate.


Cheat days: Be careful how you reward yourself. Like I have said before. It is not about undoing all the hard work you have done for the whole week prior. Think of it as a day you have a cheat meal or cheat snack. Just remember you don't want to start going backwards. Keep it up and just have a little cheat.

Sound simple? OK, go for it!
