A couple tips to get you ready for that summer bikini!
No starving allowed! Plan your meals so you’re getting those 8,000kJ, and ensure that breakfast and lunch are on the menu every single day.
Burn kilojoules without realising it
We know you’re busy, so exercise by taking the stairs instead of the lift, riding your push bike instead of using the car, or walking wherever possible.
At 30kJ per gram, alcohol contains almost double the kilojoules of protein and carbohydrates (17kJ/g each). If you have to, opt for a vodka, lime and soda (589kJ) instead of a piña colada (1,210kJ).
Research has found that too little sleep increases your appetite, while going to bed an hour earlier can reduce mindless late-night snacking.
