If your summer weight loss goal is to fit into your bikini or swimsuit…here’s our handy guide to avoiding common mistakes that may sabotage your progress (don’t worry we’ve all done them)…
1 | You’re sipping regularly on Summer drinks
When it comes to losing weight, many of us focus on what we’re eating but forget about what we’re are drinking. Sound familiar? On long, hot summer days it’s so easy to consume calories from fruity drinks packed with added sugars or frappes full of fat! Drinking your calories is so unnecessary and can easily be stopped. So, don’t panic, you can rethink what you drink with our top tips, plus try our low-sugar alternatives.
Did you know that the average frappe contains at least 60g of sugar – that’s 15 teaspoons of sugar!
Summer drinks have officially hit the menus of high street coffee shops! But, watch out – these deliciously sounding fruity thirst quenchers and frappes are a lethal weapon for sabotaging your summer weight loss. Have you ever looked at the nutritional menu? You’ll find that an average frappe contains at least 60g of sugar – that’s 15 teaspoons of sugar! You’d have to run 30 minutes just to burn it off! Don’t forget the whipped cream topping too. That’ll add 100 more calories to your drink.
With a delicious array of flavours, from Strawberry, Chocolate Mint, to our White Chocolate and Raspberry, all our Exante Shakes can be whizzed up with ice to create a 200 calorie, low sugar frappe with half the calories!
2 | You’re not eating enough
So you planned to follow the mantra of ‘Summer bodies are made in the Winter’ and suddenly June hit you and you realised you spent the Winter devouring Cadburys (we’ve all been there). So now, to compensate you’ve decided to starve yourself until your Summer holiday, event or work do – perfect. Except not so perfect at all. You may feel less bloated and initally think it’s a good plan, but you’ll likely find it results in you inhaling a takeaway come weekend. Plus, it doesn’t do so much for your metabolism either!
When it comes to losing weight, it’s important to eat little and often and ensure you are eating the right types of food. In order to avoid sabotaging your Summer weight loss, make sure you are stocked up on healthy, high-protein snacks. If you are stuck for inspo, our high protein snacks are the perfect treat to have on the go and will keep you on track towards your goals.
