It’s that time of year: beach season. For most of us, Memorial Day was the official kickoff to summer, which means that swimsuit season is officially here! This is the time of year when people take dieting to the extreme, using unhealthy methods to firm up before they suit up. This is also the time of year that I cringe while listening to other people’s ‘slimdown strategies’ because they are generally not so good for your body!
I’ve always liked to lead a healthy lifestyle, but I admit that even I step it up when summer comes around. However, a healthy lifestyle does not mean ‘crash diet’ – it means always (not just for a few months out of the year) incorporating healthy foods and exercise into your life.
For me this looks something like this:
I decided to incorporate the Advocare 24 Day Challenge into my diet in May, and I just completed the challenge on Sunday. I feel amazing and definitely toned up over the past 3.5 weeks! The first 10 days of the Challenge are an Herbal Cleanse, which detoxes you and prepares your body to properly absorb the nutrients in the supplements during the Max phase. After just 10 days, I definitely had more energy, and I felt better, too! By eating clean and placing an emphasis on fitness, Advocare can help jumpstart your metabolism – and a nice side effect is toning up a little bit, too!
