In the summer, depending on factors such as high air temperatures, our diet and lifestyle habits also change. For example, the dehydration in the body is higher this season and naturally, water consumption becomes more important. However, many people want to open the summer in a fit way, thus wishes to look both beautiful and healthy. So what to do to enjoy the season, stay energetic and have a fit body on hot summer days? Here are nutritional and exercise recommendations to keep you fit in the summer!
Eat a healthy and balanced diet
To suffice the nutrition and energy needs of our body in sizzling summer days, we need to get enough protein, carbohydrates and vitamins just like in other seasons. However, it is useful to stay away from fatty foods as much as possible to protect your health and stay fit. Instead, choose to eat healthy or grilled dishes for a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition to the main meals, you can prevent the hunger situation with snacks.
Drink at least 10 glasses of water a day
Water consumption is very important in all seasons. However, as the amount of water lost with sweating increases in the summer, the water consumed should also be increased. Our body tries to protect the heat balance against heat by sweating. For this reason, it is beneficial to take care to drink at least 10 glasses of water a day.
Consume mineral water
Along with the loss of water in the summer, minerals and electrolytes are also lost and must be replaced. Otherwise, you can continue to feel tired even if you consume enough water. For this reason, you can cool down and provide mineral and electrolyte intake by drinking 2 glasses of mineral water every day. Besides, consuming green vegetables and fruits with green leaves will serve the same function.
Take advantage of nutritional support and vitamins if necessary
In Turkey, you can easily find vegetables, fruits, vitamins and minerals in the summer months. Yet, if you want to eat healthy and balanced nutrition, stay energetic and avoid calories, you can benefit from nutrient-rich, energy-controlled nutritional supplements. When such products are selected from the quality and reliable sources, they already contain adequate energy and vitamins.
Take a regular walk
Walking is one of the most inexpensive and beneficial exercises. Even half an hour walks every day in the summer can help speed up the metabolism and regulate hormonal balance. As a result, you can feel more dynamic and maintain your weight. Therefore, you should take care to support your health by taking regular walks.
Pilates is considered one of the most effective types of exercise in the 21st century. This effective type of sport can be applied at any age and body. Also, pilates can be performed with high effort or without excessive sweating. In other words, its density can be easily adjusted according to the wishes of the person and the needs of his body. Therefore, you can support your physical health and get a fit look by doing regular pilates 3 days a week.
Ride a bike
Cycling is an indispensable activity of the summer months, however, it is also a very useful exercise type. Almost all muscle groups are active while cycling. It also accelerates calorie burning, as it requires serious effort. Therefore, you can also choose the appropriate hours of the day in the summer, cycling on beautiful routes and support your fit look.
