Clean up your diet Summer is the perfect time to clean up your diet. Not only will you look great for swimsuit season, but detoxing your system and getting rid of heavy food in your diet will give you more energy and keep you feeling good all summer long. Try to incorporate fresh summer produce into your diet such as strawberries, avocados, green beans, summer squash, and melons. Mike Clancy, a certified nutritionist and personal trainer in New York City, says that "Fruit and summer go hand-in-hand. Fruits and veggies are a summer favorite because they contain so many nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that keep you feeling energetic, yet satisfied, for hours and they contain fiber, which keeps the stomach feeling full and the digestive organs healthy. Many fruits and vegetables also contain water, which makes these natural foods an easy choice for hydration and satisfaction."
Speaking of water, it is important to drink enough water during summer months when it is easy to get dehydrated. "Drink an extra 20 ounces of water a day -- it's important to stay hydrated during the summer. If you don't have enough water in your body it can lead to a sluggish physical state, headaches and migraines, and lethargy. All of these things can me you more irritable and frustrated with minor things," says Mentore.
