Water is your friend
There’s no better summer body hack to accompany your day than good old fashioned H20. Best of all, it’s completely free! Drinking water might seem like a pointless, irrelevant task, especially when you don’t feel thirsty, but there are so many body benefits it’s a must in any summer body toolkit.
If you intend to lose weight, then water has to feature as your most consumed item each day. Water contains no calories, can curb your appetite by making you feel more full and flushes out toxins from your body helping fat metabolism. It also helps us to work out more comfortably and effectively by preventing cramps and keeping muscles lubricated.
Drinking a healthy quantity of water can work wonders for our skin. Water is pH neutral and therefore keeps skin healthy by maintaining the correct equilibrium of acid and alkaline. Flushing our bodies through with water ensures that harmful toxins are removed via the kidneys and don’t flare up as unwanted outbreaks on the skin. Water also has the important job of keeping us hydrated which in turn maintains skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles and gives us a youthful appearance.

Fire up the BBQ
This is the perfect time of year to ditch the fryer, step out of the kitchen and grill in the garden. Not only is this a great way to bring friends, neighbours and family together, but it’s way better for your body.
Winter recipes have a habit of incorporating starchy, fatty, heavy ingredients into a time of year when we are already feeling rather sedentary and sluggish. A quick, easy and enjoyable summer body hack is to get cooking on gas (or coals!).
Forget heavy loaded burger buns, baguettes and hot dogs. The BBQ lends itself perfectly to marinaded meats, deliciously grilled vegetables, accompanied by colourful salads, fresh salsas, Crudités and fruits. It’s the healthiest way to shake up your diet this summer without being a drag.
Kick cellulite to the curb
With leggings and trackies packed away for (hopefully) the foreseeable future, our summer wardrobes are exposing far more of our bodies than we’ve been used to for some time!

Cryotherapy is safe, comfortable and quick, giving radical results you’ll want to show off this summer.
Pack in the proteins
Quarantine has certainly been responsible for a heavy intake of carbs. Countless nights in front of the telly, catch-ups on family zooms and a long cold winter have forced us to seek comfort in warm cosy meals and sugary snacks. Nobody blames you, but a switch to proteins is an effective summer body hack that boosts your metabolism, reduces your appetite and helps you lose body fat without losing muscle and tone.
