Instead of “beach-body” obsession stay healthy and fit for the summer

Instead of torturing yourself to fit the 21st century’s often unrealistic beauty standards – leading you to follow unhealthy diets, to experience frustration or even depression and low self-confidence – “beach body” should rather mean being healthy and fit while enjoying the bikini season feeling good and relaxed. Aiming to achieve a beach body should mean, we are making steps towards a healthier life, while making peace with our own body and selves. And of course, not making other human beings feeling bad for their own body, by throwing shots on them just because we don’t like what we see.

Instead of jumping into a drastical diet while paniking because our beach vacation is almost here, we could just set the most important target: to regain our force, stay healthy without gaining weight or to shed the pounds gained in winter as we don’t need them anymore to protect us from the cold weather.

By including abundantly the following seasonal foods in your diet, your “beach body” will be powerful and healthy again. Complementing it with a 20-minutes EMS training once or twice a week, will bring you incredible results in feeling and seeing yourself beatiful and powerful.
