Are you a fan of the summer weather or do you prefer the cooler seasons?!
I enjoy fashion and I have my own way of dressing but still am able to keep my style somewhat trendy!
I’m not afraid to try different combinations of clothing items because it usually turns into being a great outfit idea!
If you like trying different things with your style, check out these tips to pull off wearing summer clothes in the fall!
1. Take breaks under the shade to cool off
If you plan on spending most of your time outside, try to get out of the sun throughout the day. Go to the nearest store or shopping center to cool off when it’s scorching hot outside!
2. Wear loose, light colored clothing
Wearing tight fitted dark colored clothing can absorb heat and restrict proper air flow. Try your best to wear cotton material which is great for absorbing moisture easily. Don’t forget about wearing accessories like hats and sunglasses for added protection from the sun!
3. Lower floors of buildings
Heat rises, so higher floors of buildings or homes are normally warmer than lower floors. If possible, sleep on the ground floor or basement for a cooler environment. Covering windows with drapes and shades can help reduce indoor heat as well.
4. Limit intake of soda and alcohol
Soda and alcoholic beverages can have a dehydrating effect. If it’s unavoidable, alternate with drinking sips of water here and there to help reduce dehydration.
1. Stock Up On Cinnamon
Researchers found that the spice’s main compound, cinnamaldehyde, improves thermogenesis and can help fight fat. Sprinkling a bit of cinnamon on your oatmeal is a good way to help lose your gut!
2. No More Added Sugars
A study in the British Medical Journal found that increased sugar intake showed a response of an increase in body weight and reducing sugar resulted in lower weight. So try to stay away from added sugars and sweets!
3. Open-Faced Sandwiches
Instead of giving up sandwiches or burgers because of the bread, just toss the top slice! This will help cut about 100 calories from your meal!
4. Drink Lots Of Green Tea
Several studies suggested that the flavonoids and caffeine in green tea can help increase your metabolism, increase fat oxidation, and even improve insulin activity. Drinking about 2.5 cups per day can help you lose that belly fat!
5. Use Smaller Plates!
Using smaller plates can help you cut back on the amount of food that you serve yourself. Another helpful tip is to use red plates which can help you eat less based on a study published in the journal Appetite.
6. Fill Half Your Plate With Veggies
By eating your veggies before anything else, this will help take the edge of your hunger, eat less overall calories, and still have you feeling full and satisfied!
7. Eat Wild Salmon!
Wild caught salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats that can help you lose your gut! For added weight loss benefits, add cayenne and garlic to your salmon for an added boost to your metabolism.
8. Slice Up Some Kiwi
Kiwi contains prebiotic fiber, which preps the gut for healthy digestion. This results in more bowel movements and helps to get rid of your stubborn gut!
9. Drink Water Before Meals
Drinking two glasses before you sit down to eat can help you feel full. This helps you cut back on the amount of calories you’ll consume!
10. Make It Spicy!
Capsaicin is a compound that is found in spicy peppers like chilis, jalapeños, and cayenne, has been shown to boost your metabolism and help you drop unwanted weight. Swap ketchup for sriracha, add jalapeños to your stews, marinate meat with chili paste, add hot sauce instead of salt and pepper. Just experiment with the spiciness!
Give these tips a try! You don’t even have to lift a dumbbell or run on the treadmill to lose your gut!
All you have to do is adjust your eating habits a bit and you’ll be on your way to a nice flat tummy to show off this summer! It’s all up to you and how bad you want it! Good luck! 😊
Summer is here! Yay!
The one thing most of us dislike about this season are THE BUGS! Yikes!
