Let’s be honest; summer is here and for many of us, it isn’t easy to throw on a swimsuit and walk out the door without a second thought. If you’re in South Florida you’ll agree that we’re in the middle of the hottest months and we’re wearing lighter and less clothing, so it’s natural to be more aware of our summer body and the areas we wish to improve on.
Who doesn’t want a leaner, more fit and sculpted summer body?
With the right tools, we can all get there – but not without true dedication and effort. At Brooks Plastic Surgery, we believe that it’s important to feel and look good both inside and outside. Taking the right steps to getting your body healthy is a springboard to feeling your best and then, looking your best.
To begin, what you put in your body is a major factor in maintaining a healthy weight and a healthy body. Summertime offers excellent options at the supermarket, with many fresh fruits and vegetables in season and in abundance. Creating large, colorful salads daily is one key way to staying lean. Model Gisele Bundchen’s diet (and that of husband Tom Brady) is clean and wholesome, and she’s been quoted as loving to eat fresh salads daily. The rest of their diet is planned around whole grains, lean meats, fish and some fruit. Another popular and nourishing option that is filling and healthy is soup – hot or cold.
Sometimes finding fresh recipes and new options to keep your meal choices interesting is key to keeping up with making healthy choices. Heart healthy diets are also extremely important. A heart-healthy diet is high in vegetables and low in sugar. You will also want to include low-fat protein, whole grains, fruit and heart-healthy fats, like nuts and olive oil.

Not only is healthy eating important, but moving the body is also essential. Exercise matters and there are so many activities you can pick up – from biking and organized sports to strength training and the ever-popular yoga. Yoga is known to help those who practice achieve a sound body, mind and spirit. The ancient exercise can be done at home or in classes with a group. Yoga is all about improving flexibility, balance, focus, strengthening and toning the muscles, aligning the body and burning calories. There are many celebrities who rave about the benefits of yoga, such as Jennifer Aniston, Justin Timberlake and Kate Hudson.
Getting your body in its healthiest state for summer is possible, if you commit to the process. Once you’ve adopted healthy habits, you may choose to enhance your new body with one of the popular procedures at Brooks Plastic Surgery.
