Summer is a time for fun and sun… You can have fun as well as take care of yourself this summer. Here are seven tips for building and maintaining a fit summer body.
1. Morning Detox
Start your morning right by cleansing & detoxing your body both internally and externally. This will give you a good dose of enzyme too!
1 oz Purely (any flavor)
5 oz Water or Sparkling Water
2. Hydration is Key
Drinking adequate amounts of water, particularly before meals, may give you a boost in managing appetite and maintaining a healthy body weight, especially when combined with a healthy eating plan too!
Multiply your weight by 2/3 (or 67%) to determine how much water to drink daily. For example, if you weighed 175 pounds you would multiply that by 2/3 and learn you should be drinking about 117 ounces of water every day.
3. Eat and Drink Right
Eat a balance meal of fruits, vegetables, protein, fats and good carbohydrates. One hack during your meals is to drink Purely + sparkling water. The Apple Cider Vinegar in it will lower your GI = curb blood sugar spikes and lower risk of diabetes = aid weight loss.
4. Afternoon Pick-Me-Up
Instead of coffee in the afternoon or throughout the day, make a Purely with sparkling water or juice or kombucha! It's easy, good and effective! It will you give you an instant boost of energy without the crash! So refreshing... ahhhhh!
There are so many ways you can exercise effectively especially during the summer months. Running, walking, swimming, hiking are all simple forms of exercise you can do outside in the sunny weather. Take advantage of the warm weather and treat your body well. Did you know the ACV in Purely can absorb lactic acid in your body = decrease fatigue muscles.
5. Focus on the Core
Just as the foundation keeps a house strong and solid, the core keeps your body strong and solid. Building a strong core is essential to a healthy body and beneficial for those of all ages. Along with the normal exercise you do throughout the week add in some extra core work 3-4 times per week. This routine doesn’t need to be extreme. It is important to give your core the extra attention it deserves.
Your body needs rest. Make sure you provide it with plenty of rest. Apple cider vinegar has long been used as a tonic to help boost the immune system and fight infection. When it comes to steady sleep, some people swear by apple cider vinegar because it releases tryptophan in your system. Our founder swears by her concoction of 1oz Strawberry Lemon + 4oz water she drinks every night!
The mixture is generally diluted in warm water and drunk before bedtime or upon rising. It's claimed to aid weight loss and improve seasonal allergies and blood pressure.
