Summer training is the difference between wearing your shirt on the beach and being the bronzed-god getting invited to every summer beach party.

Plan your meals

Not planning your daily meals is arguably one of the easiest ways to sabotage your attempts at a healthy lifestyle and often leads to settling for unhealthy alternatives. Check out the Men’s Health Belly Off plan for eating and workout plans that actually work.

Spice Things Up
Adding new and interesting meals and regimes to your healthy lifestyle will help keep you motivated and prevent boredom. Try an outdoor scenic run instead of the treadmill or participate in one of the many organised events.

Find a workout buddy 
In the beginning of a training regime, keeping positive can be one of the hardest parts. Training with someone close to you like a friend, colleague or family member makes it easier to keep on track, as it can help turn the exercise experience into fun quality time as well.

Keep a food journal
Keeping track of what you consume on a daily basis will give you an understanding of why progress may or may not have been made. Track everything from snacks to main meals, and use this information to analyse your fitness results and pinpoint dietary changes you feel should be made.

Start Small
Make attainable, small changes to your lifestyle rather than setting goals that can seem daunting and impossible to reach. These changes could be really basic, such as excluding soft drinks from your diet or adding in more fibre, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
