Delicious fruit is in season, so have some fresh fruit juice made at home.

Summer means change in eating habits and not necessarily for the better. With these simple slim down tips and tricks, you can stay on the weight loss track and keep up your healthy routine this summer and beyond.

• Eat before you go out: If you’re headed out for a big meal or party, don’t skip breakfast or your mid-morning snack. Eat plenty of nutritious, high-fibre foods all throughout the day. Pretend the day is just like any other, and you’ll be way less likely to over-indulge.

• Have fruit for dessert: Delicious fruit is in season, so trade that lemon meringue pie for some fresh cantaloupe or strawberries. Offer to make a fruit salad for potlucks. Don’t forget fruit smoothies. Add fresh spinach or kale to your shake and you’ll fulfil a vegetable serving while satiating your sweet tooth.

• Stick to your routine: On vacations and weekends it’s easy to spiral away from good habits. To avoid a weight loss setback, try sticking to your weekday routine. Make good choices like eating a nutritious breakfast, getting some exercise and packing healthful snacks to fuel your day.

• Get Moving: Make time to take walks around the neighborhood, go for a swim, or even do yoga in the park. You’ll feel better and your body will thank you.

Even if you’re not at your goal weight, don’t let that stop you. By making smart choices this summer, you can live a healthier lifestyle.
