How To Fake Looking Skinnier for Summer
The summer months are all about beach bodies and hard bodies, but looking fit can be both difficult and time-consuming. Some of us just don't have the will or inclination to hit the gym after work or take part in a 5 mile hike on Sunday morning. Luckily there are a few easy ways that people like us can fake it till we make it... to McDonald's.
Get A Great Tan
Dark things look smaller, therefore, a dark you will look smaller. It does seem to pass the logic test, doesn't it? Getting a deep tan will make you look slimmer and more toned, and it works for guys as well as girls. Getting a tan also has the side effect of making you look a lot healthier, as well as giving some of us the illusion that we actually do go outside on occasion. Getting a tan doesn't have to be difficult, either. There are many home tanning products available today that look authentic and won't turn you into a giant cheeto. Home tanning products also have the minor side benefit of not causing cancer. Tanning salons will work for you aesthetically, but you should keep in mind they aren't necessarily safer than tanning outside and that you can still potentially burn.
Dress Fit to Look Fit
There are a lot of tricks that you can use to look fit simply by changing your wardrobe. Ladies have many options for undergarments that tuck, compress and hide, and men can usually hide a lot under a dark polo and slacks. The most important thing you should remember, however, is to buy clothes that actually fit you. Smaller clothes aren't going to make you look smaller, they're going to make you look like a marshmallow attempting to break out of its cotton prison. Likewise, clothes that are too large for you won't hide your chub, they'll just make you look a little like you're borrowing your older sibling's clothes. Instead, buy clothes that fit you and rely on appealing colors and patterns to distract others from the fact that you're not one of those people who checks their calorie counter app every five minutes.
Cut Down on Your Salt
One way to quickly trim down a few pounds is to simply cut down on your salt intake. A high sodium diet leads to water retention, among other problems, and retained water can make you more bloated than you naturally should be. It's not exactly safe to stop drinking water, but cutting down your sodium intake will allow your body to flush out the water as itis supposed to. This can be a quick way to cut down on some unwanted pudge while also getting healthier. Salt can belisted on an ingredient label in many ways, so it is very important to look at the total amount of sodium that is on a nutritional label. Salt is also necessary for survival, so you should at least consume some of it at some point.
Hit the Gym--Hard
You're not going to lose those extra pounds by lazily walking on a treadmill while watching Maury. In fact, women and men alike benefit the most from lifting weights two or three times a week for under an hour at a time. Lifting weights increases your metabolism which leads to a calorie burning effect throughout the day of your workout as well as the following day. Lifting weights also increases your muscle mass, which in turn increases the amount of calories your body burns on a daily level. This means that while an iron pumping session at the gym might not burn as many calories immediately as a cardio session it will burn more calories overall. Studies have shown that if you don't want to end up spending all of your free time at the gym you should focus on the words "weight training" and not the words "weight loss."
Looking fit is great, but being fit is still better. Remember that no matter how many shortcuts you use in the meantime, the best plan is to create a sustainable and healthy diet and exercise regimen that can guide you throughout your life. Not only will you live longer and be happier with yourself, but you'll also be able to lift heavier things and taunt people weaker than yourself, and that's always great.
