Start Your Springtime Diet to Be in Shape For Summer Spring is the time of year when everyone starts to look at the upcoming summer. The most common association of springtime is the cleaning ritual that takes place – the yearly act of cleaning the house from top to bottom which takes place in the first few warm days of the year (usually in spring, but dependent on the British climate!). It is now commonplace to take other area of your life into consideration for the springtime ritual – especially your body. The idea of detoxing your body stems back to the earliest written word where, for religious ceremonies and purposes, the common person along with priests would undertake cleaning ceremonies. It seems people have always seen the need to clean out their bodies after a long and cold winter. In modern times, we are more concentrated on the image of our bodies and how we will OK when the dreaded sweaters have to come off. It is therefore a good time to start to look for a weight loss plan that will fit into your daily life and routine. There are many types of diets – one favoured for the spring dieters is a low carb diet, also known as a ketosis diet where the body is starved of the high energy carbohydrates and is forced to burn off the excess fat being stored through those winter months. Starting your weight loss in Spring gives you plenty time to get your diet right and start healthily – there is no point forcing your body into something which you know you won’t be able to stick to due to cravings. Consulting a dietician, a doctor even asking friends how to stop craving unhealthy food, or even what types of foods you should be eating should be your first step. Some diet companies even provide all your meals that you need – stopping you from snacking as you prepare meals or over-buying when you go for your weekly shopping trip. Make sure you have looked for a variety of diets and choose the one you will be able to stick to the easiest. After all, if you want to go on that holiday and take your favourite bikini, you should start to plan ahead early.
