How To Lose Some Weight For Your Holiday

We all love going away on holiday, especially if that means a fun and warm break in the sun. But along with loving the feeling of sitting on a beach, swimming in the sea and getting the chance to really relax that you don’t really get at home, going on a beach holiday can actually cause a certain level of anxiety for us. For some people the anxiety comes from the stress of organising the holiday for others it is the stress of trying to afford the cost of the holiday. But a huge number of people also worry about the way that they will look when they are in their swimming costume on the beach.


If you have been lucky enough to book a holiday recently you may be feeling like this. Perhaps you’ve gained a little weight since your last holiday and you’re worried that you might not fit into your swimming costume like you used to. But don’t worry, all is not lost. We’ve got a really fantastic dieting plan that is the perfect way to help you drop those extra pounds very quickly and get in shape for your beach holiday. Based across just seven days, it is ideal for those people who need a quick fix to remedy their pre-holiday blues.


So how does it work? The plan is designed around a basis of cutting calories and going a lot of high intensity cardio work. In fact the overall goal of the plan is to create a daily calorie deficit of around 500 calories. When you consider that women generally need around 2,100 calories per day to maintain their weight, it’s clear that if you want to lose weight, you need to bring your calorie intake down. In the case of this diet, you’ll take it down to 1,600 calories and then workout to work off more calories.


On the first day of the diet you’ll eat for breakfast two scrambled eggs with one thin slice of wholemeal bread, without butter. Then enjoy a morning snack of an apple and six almonds. For lunch, have a salmon fillet with a butter-less roll, then a low-fat yoghurt and a half a carton of blueberries for your snack. Then for dinner have a low-fat chicken tikka masala made without the use of cream, with a small portion of brown rice on the side. To compliment this you’ll need to do interval training on the treadmill for 40 minutes.


Day two sees you having Weetabix for breakfast, celery and cottage cheese for your morning snack, baked sweet potato with ratatouille and feta for lunch, two satsumas for your afternoon snack and finishing the day with stir fried pork for dinner. Today is a rest day, so you don’t need to do any exercise.


On day three you’ll have porridge for breakfast, a slice of melon wrapped in prosciutto for a snack, bacon and lentil soup for lunch, a pear for your afternoon snack and Bolognese made with Quorn for your dinner. Then 50 minutes of interval training.


On day four have French toast for breakfast, miso soup as a mid-morning snack, chicken and avocado wrap for lunch, a small bunch of grapes for your afternoon snack and skinless cod fillet for sinner. Then complete a one hour walk for your exercise.


On days five, six and seven, simply repeat the contents of days one, two and three and you’ll be on course for a fabulous beach body that you’ll be proud to show off. So why not get started today?
