April is a month of change. Spring signals not only a season change, but a shift to lighter and more revealing clothing. Capitalizing on the maximum range of spring fashions is easier when a person has a more physically fit physique.
Granted, it is difficult to have fashion and physique at the forefront of one’s mind when winter has chosen to go out like a lion. Armed with scarf and shovel, rather than running shoes, the attainment of looking good through exercise is not an easy thing to come by with the weather so formidable.
For the portion of the population stuck inside without a gym membership, focusing on diet is an initial way in which one may prepare for the fashions of spring. However, it is important to create a realistic and healthy eating plan in the pursuit of trimming up in time for warmer
weather. In an age where even the fashion industry has recognized the dangers of cutting calories to lose weight, focusing on eating healthy, rather than less, is of the utmost importance.
As women prepare for the inevitable dressing room stressors of spring, let this serve as a reminder for them to enact healthy tactics in their plan to trim up in the name of fashion. Eating well, rather than less, naturally leads to weight loss, and is a far healthier alternative to wacky diet regimens.
A recent study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, has shown that individuals whose diets are rich in Mediterranean foods, versus merely a low-fat diet, are 30% less likely to experience a fatal cardiac event such as a heart attack. A Mediterranean diet is described as being
one that focuses on vegetables, fish, fruit, legumes, and olive oil. With flip-flops and sundresses not far on the horizon, this is definitely food for thought.
