Here are a few nutrition and fitness tips to keep you healthier this summer:
Don’t Eat When You’re Thirsty
We often mistake thirst for hunger, especially during the warm months. Don’t eat when what you really want is to drink. Always ask yourself if you are really hungry.
Watch What You Drink
High-calorie beverages like soda, whole milk, juices, alcohol and sugared iced tea can add unwanted and under-appreciated calories. Drink water with lemon or mint, or try seltzer or unsweetened iced tea. Tea is loaded health benefits. Read more about tea here.
Bike Instead of Drive
Save gas, and get some exercise. A 155-pound person riding at a leisurely 10 to 12 mph can burn 423 calories in just one hour or about seven calories per minute.
It’s low in calories (only 92 calories per 2-cup serving), and it fills you up because it’s 92 percent water, which helps keep you hydrated. One cup of watermelon has 7.5 to 10 milligrams of the antioxidant lycopene, which is a good source of vitamins A and C, and also contains potassium, vitamin B6 and thiamin.
