As summer approaches, everyone does their best to get into the best shape so they can head to the beach, wear a swimsuit, and feel great. However, we put all that hard work into getting ready for summer vacation, but what happens after your trip to a tropical island? While on vacation it can be so easy to get carried away with all the good food and poolside drinks. To avoid falling into a slump after your vacation, it is important to detox and get back into a clean and healthy routine. Here, we have brought to you a few ways you can indulge in a post summer vacation detox and feel just as good after your vacation as you did before.
1. Try a smoothie cleanse.
One of the most important and most difficult parts of recovering from a great vacation is getting back to a clean diet. This can be achieved in a few different ways such as trying a smoothie cleanse such as this Cleanse & Detox Smoothie, and that flush out toxins from your system and keep you full without all the added preservatives or fats from heavy meals. We have tons of other recipes for healthy and delicious smoothies.
2. Cut out sugar and salt.
Sugar and salt can be the hardest ingredients to cut out of your diet, but they are the two ingredients that make the most impact on your body in large quantities. They can suck the energy out of you as well as deplete your body of important nutrients. To help get you started, we have a 7-Day Sugar Detox Challenge that will put you on the right path. When cutting out the salt and sugar, you can substitute these cleansing foods into your daily diet instead.
3. Get back into your workout routine.
Having a beach bod just for the summer isn’t enough. You should feel confident in your body all year long! If you don’t have a well-established exercise regimen, we have some great places to start such as this 17-Day Walk/Run Plan or this Weightlifting Plan for Beginners. If you are no amateur to exercise, challenge yourself with our workout challenges such as 21-Day Booty Reshape Challenge or this 28-Day Flat Belly Challenge. They are sure to set you back into a steady routine and build up your body’s stamina after lying by the pool all summer long.
