Weight management support can make your summer better, and not just because you might gain some bikini- or swim trunk-induced confidence. There are other physical benefits to proper weight management that don’t have to do with cholesterol levels, heart disease, or even beach bum admiration.
1. Managing your weight can help you feel cooler.
Core body temperature and excess weight do show a correlation. Think about it. Whales, polar bears, and hibernators like black bears and squirrels know that excess fat keeps you warm. Sure, they’re also stocking up so they can avoid eating for months at a time. But imagine how chilly a seal would be rolling off of and onto an iceberg twenty times a day without that thick blubber!
Fat is natural insulation. If you’re wearing a blanket all summer, you’re not enjoying the weather for what it has to offer. Many people also feel that being overweight means they should cover up with more clothes—consequently, they are plagued by even higher temps.
Managing your weight so that you reach your healthy body fat percentage is a great way to make your summer more enjoyable. Staying cooler also has another benefit. We all know the lethargy of a hazy, humid July afternoon. Staying cool can benefit your energy levels, which brings us to the number 2 summer benefit of weight management.
2. Managing your weight can up your energy supply.*
This tip might be obvious, but it isn’t necessarily intuitive because fat is supposed to be stored for energy and survival. But too much of it can be seriously draining. Generally, excess weight is accompanied by a poor diet, inactivity and sleep disorders. A lack of good nutrients, movement and/or sleep can cause fatigue.
Supporting weight management with products like Thermoset or Green Tea Extract supports thermogenesis and energy levels.* Simply exercising more will (believe it or not!) give you more energy for your summer, making it better in an instant.
3. Managing your weight gives you even more motivation to exercise!
A body in motion stays in motion. Being in shape makes you want to be in shape. Get moving! If you feel good, have a lot of energy, eat right and are working out, you’ll want to work out. And working out will make you feel good, have a lot of energy, eat right… you get the idea. Supporting weight management with supplements like Tonalin CLA, which also supports energy levels and is designed to increase lean muscle mass, will help you get to—and keep getting to—the gym.* Or the great outdoors. Or just up and out, period.
This summer, make the changes you desire. Your summer will be cooler all around. And keep your taste buds ready for a new weight management support drink mix from FoodScience of Vermont.* You might be in for a delicious change of pace!
