5 Summer Diet Tips To Beat The Heat

Looking for bright ways to stay fit and frosty this summer? Here’s what we recommend to tarry healthy and beat the heat with these 5 Summer diet tips:

Eat Small, Frequent Meals

To digest a large meal body creates more metabolic heat while breaking down the food. Steer clear of high-protein foods as they also raise your metabolic heat levels.

Eat veggies

All greens have high water content, so they’re easy to digest. That means your body does not have to work as hard, that saves you energy and keeps you cool. Cucumbers are incredibly hydrating zucchini, which contains vitamin C and significant phytonutrients, is also a great source of manganese that protects the body from sun damage. 

Cool off with fruits

Watermelon, peaches (only 35-50 calories), pineapple, and apples (95 calories with 4g fiber) can act like internal air-conditioners. Apples also contain a type of soluble fiber called pectin, which curtails hunger and helps weight loss. 

Spice is nice

You probably think it will only raise your body temperature, but studies have shown spicy food and chilies stimulate heat receptors in the mouth. That heightens circulation, causing you to sweat, which in turn cools your body down.

Avoid alcohol

It dehydrates the body. Also, steer clear of drinks with caffeine like coffee and colas increase the body’s metabolic heat. Stick to water with lemon, not only for its skin and immune-boosting benefits but because it encourages you to drink more water overall.
