How to Improve Your Beach Bod in Less Than a Month

By Isabella Trelles on April 11, 2019

Do you have that vacation coming up? Or maybe even that wedding you wanted to lose five pounds for? Well, you’re in luck because this article is for the people who want that extra boost of confidence in a short amount of time. The following steps will explain what worked for me when trying to feel better in a bikini with only a month to spare.

Try A Cleanse

I’m not talking about a seven-day juice cleanse that only lets you drink juice– yes, those. I’m talking about a healthy (and an actually doable) cleanse!

I’m a huge fan of a powder called Green Superfood Detox and Digest by Amazing Grass. This supplement can be treated as a cleanse by taking it every day, you can put it in your favorite smoothie or even just add it to a glass of water. The reason I love this product is because it’s meant to cleanse the toxins out of your body by building the “good bacteria” in your stomach. This good bacteria is built by probiotics and this product contains millions of them. By consuming this every day your digestive track will help process your food better and it reduces bloating and inflammation (my bloating issues were eliminated after two weeks). Did I mention that it also contains a full serving of greens per serving? There’s no doubt that this product is a healthy and safe way to help look and feel even better.

Hitting the gym in the morning

This might seem obvious because people love morning workouts, but there is some reasoning for this. Studies have proven that exercising before you have eaten will be the most effective workout and you will see the best results. The best way to do this is to wake up, drink your coffee, then do a cardio based exercise. By doing this, you will burn stored fat as opposed to an afternoon workout, where you would be burning the calories you have already consumed that day. Stored fat is all of the calories you have already consumed and digested so by working out in the morning before you have eaten anything, you’re simply burning all of your old calories.

This tip also works best if you’re just trying to slim down and lose some body fat, meaning it’s not super helpful if your goal is to gain muscle.

By doing this a few times a week, it could help give you that extra boost you need!

**Although, you should proceed with caution. If you’re a morning person that needs something in their system before you can do anything, don’t hesitate to eat a snack before your workout.**

Improving Your Diet

I’m not about to list a whole diet plan here because those can be extremely tricky but I can tell you a few simple things to take out and a few things to add in. Small changes like this can help you feel better than ever!

  • Drink two glasses of water at every meal. Water helps to flush out your system and helps you feel full when eating!
  • Cut out alcohol for a whole month. Cocktails and beers are usually very high in calorie! This can be hard I know, but give your liver a break.
  • Avoid processed foods. Like packaged chips, instant noodles, most cereals, white bread, etc. these foods are very high in sodium which cause you to bloat.
  • Adding more fruits and veggies. This is simple! These are non-complex carbs, meaning it doesn’t take your body much effort to break them down which equals better beach bod.

I hope that these were useful tips! But you should always feel comfortable in your own skin no matter what!
