We can all feel it. The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and the summer sun is beginning to show its face. But, while many are excited about basking in the sunshine, some are feeling anxious about the prospect of showing more skin in the summer months.
As a result, fad diets and extreme solutions become more and more attractive as we look to shed some weight for the hot weather. But fad diets produce unsustainable results and can really affect our quality of life. However, with three months until summer begins, there is still plenty of opportunity to lose weight efficiently and safely – without the need for a fad diet!

Here are Bodyline’s top 10 tips to lose weight before Summer!
Get in the right frame of mind!
Did you know that mindfulness can aid in significant weight loss? That’s right, when incorporating meditation and mindfulness into our lives, we are much more likely to lose the weight and keep it off. By engaging in meditation and being aware of every mouthful of food we are putting into our body we can lose weight more effectively and sustainably!
Eat little and often
Eating small amounts frequently throughout the day, our bodies are less likely to store excess energy as fat. It also enables the body to burn more calories, therefore aiding in weight loss. This trick is a sustainable way to reduce your calorie intake and encourage your body to lose weight! It can also be continued into the summer months, as lighter foods will be much more appealing in the warm temperatures.

Get a full 8 hours every night to ensure you are on the right track for your weight loss goals.

Start your day on the right track!
We’ve always heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day and there is definitely some truth to it! Starting the day right can help you feel motivated for the rest of the day, keep you fuller and with more energy, and reduce the risk of overconsuming.
Regular exercise is a key part of weight loss, so make sure to keep moving! Try to hit 10,000 steps a day, make exercise the focus of social time with friends and family, and find a form of exercise you love to do! Outdoor exercise is particularly good this time of year, not only will it aid in your weight loss goals, but it can improve your mental health significantly.
Use little mile stones
It can be hard to see the results in the beginning, and day by day you may not see any immediate changes. But rather than focussing on the big picture, look at the small achievements you’ve made. Have you run for longer than ever before? Can you use a shorter belt hole? Have you managed to avoid chocolate for over a week?
Reward yourself without food
Change your relationship with food by removing positive emotions from it. Using food as a reward is linked with a high BMI. Food is about sustenance and energy; it shouldn’t be something you reward yourself with. Instead, reward yourself with clothes, toiletries, or days out. Break the cycle!
Ensure you have a good support system
With the support of friends and family, who aren’t questioning your healthier life choices, losing weight is so much easier. Not only this, but Bodyline also offers incredible support and motivation from our team of trained nurses and clinicians. This personal guidance and assistance is what sets us apart from others, as we help you through every step of the process!
Counting down to summer has never been easier!
