8 Tips to Look Beautiful and Slim Again
Want to look beautiful and slim again? Here are eight tips to consider if you wish to slim down in a snap and fit into your favorite dress again.
We’re all familiar with the undesirable yoyo effect, not to mention the scars that pregnancy leaves on the female body. You can still regain your sexy figure if:
You eat foods that fill you up faster
Generally foods that are rich in fiber like whole grains, brown rice and nuts of any kind (unless you are allergic to nuts) not only fill you up faster, but will also keep you satisfied longer. Fruits and vegetables also help you get lean.
High in fiber and water, greens are low in calories. Because they fill us fast, specialists often refer to them as high-volume foods. Compelling research shows that people who eat more fruits and veggies daily tend to eat less amounts of food at one meal and lose fat faster. Nutritionists recommend having fruit even before sitting down to eat to help reduce the amount of food you eat at one meal. An apple a day not only keeps the doctor away, but especially if you are planning to lose a few pounds, it also keeps double portions away from your dinner table.
Adopt a healthy, active lifestyle
Get off that couch and go for a run! Jogging outdoors for 10 to 40 minutes can help you burn fat faster than a crash diet would. Additionally, the calorie-torching effect of jogging persists up to 48 hours after you have stopped exercising, which is great if you wish to lose those stubborn extra pounds fast.
If you are not the running kind, then perhaps instead of taking the subway or driving to work (if you live within walking distance), walk to the office. It will lift up your spirits, improve creativity and focus, while helping you keep fit and get lean.
Weightlifting will not make you look like a man. It will help you build sexy, lean muscles. Get a pair of dumbbells and include weightlifting in your regular workout regimen. You may consider side planking with dumbbells (3-5 on each side).
Too busy to exercise? Hide a pair of small dumbbells under your desk and feel free to use them while reading through a report or brainstorming for an upcoming meeting. Not only will you be multitasking in a more pleasant way, but you will also improve your fitness level while working on a killer beach figure that will turn heads in your path.
Proper hydration is key to a healthy diet. Drinking plenty of water helps your body flush out toxins, which in most cases account for the accumulation of fat in your body, particularly around your midsection.
Looking for something tasty? Try LumiTea’s tea for colon cleanse. Beauty starts from within.

It is lower in caffeine and healthier than coffee. So, if you’re planning to cut back on caffeine, this tea is the perfect choice for a morning drink.
Your food is not your refuge
Sometimes we tend to use stress as an excuse for cramming food until we cannot breathe. Does this sound familiar? If yes, stop it! You can read a book, meet up with friends, watch a movie or even chew on some healthy, crunchy veggie like carrots or kohlrabi.
If none of these seem to help beat your psychological pressure, then work out a little. Whether you hit the treadmill or the pavement, the uplifting effects are guaranteed. After a good 30-minute run, you will feel as good as new, ready to face another day.
Use smaller plates
Eat less and more often if you need to. Smaller plates give you the psychologic effect of the glass half full rather than half empty. Nothing compares to a full salad plate! This will help you downsize your portions.
Chew your food
To help the satiety feeling, chew every bite properly. Eating slowly also prevents air swallowing while eating, which is one of the major causes of gas and bloating. Additionally, taking your time to eat also helps reduce the quantity that you eat and helps digestion. After all, digestion helps in the mouth. The enzymes in your saliva help break down food, which reaching the intestinal tract is further decomposed, nutrients separated from waste and absorbed into your system. So, savoring your food helps you better absorb nutrients and stay healthy!
Foods that are high in fat require more time to digest. This is one of the reasons why your gastrointestinal tract tends to get sluggish leading to constipation and bloating. If you ever wondered why buttoning your pants after eating a lavish, fat-rich meal, this is why. To avoid that, stay away from fats or eat a minimum of high-fat foods. A salad or grains are always better and healthier options.
You are what you eat and remember, getting the bikini look before summer is all in your hands! Sip up on LumiTea and eat green to get lean.
