Operation Beach Body
Easy 3-Step Plan
It's that time of year again where I dust off my bikinis and pack up my sweaters and boots. After a sedentary winter, I decided to get back to the gym about 2 months ago determined to rally and be ready for the summer. I signed up with a new trainer this year who was able to advise me on diet and exercise and off I went. After firing off a fair amount of weight in a short 2 months I figured I'd share what program he had me on.
I'm not really a coffee drinker and I'm very sensitive to stimulants so my trainer recommended Niveau CLA
in conjunction with my diet. It was a welcome addition as I had never even heard of CLA for cutting fat. Really seems to have worked for me without the negative effects I've found with other gimmicky weight-loss stuff. CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in wild and grass fed meats that helps in a variety of ways to reduce and inhibit fat storage.
I like to keep my strength up so we did a fair amount of weights mixed in with a sweat dripping HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) regimen. We swapped body parts and this was a 4 day a week deal. In my 3 off days, I would usually do sprints in my local park as opposed to long distance running. I find that sprints really supercharge your fat loss and challenge the body.
For food, I tried to keep it really simple. Low carb and only healthy fats. This is not always easy but it typically winds up being a lot of wild fish, eggs, poultry, veggies, mixed into several small meals every few hours. It paired well with the supplements I was on and the weight seemed to drip off relatively easily. I only drink water when I'm trying to cut weight and keep the alcohol and fruit and fruit-based drinks to a minimum. Keep processed foods out of the equation and focus on fresh, organic or wild veggies and meats. Hope these tips helped, I know they will work for you just like they did for me. With the right supplements, fitness routine, and diet your body will shed pounds quickly and get you ready for that summer beach body in no time at all.
