It happens to the best of us, winter and the holidays come and go and in the blink of an eye it is summer and you are not looking good in the bikini that fit you so well just a few months before.
Whether you are prepared or not, summer is officially around the corner and with those summer beach vacations already planned, it is time to drop that extra winter weight and get looking your best. Weight is something that so many people struggle with, and with literally thousands of diets out there it can be hard as well as intimidating to figure out where to even begin. The thing about dieting is that instead of looking at it as a diet, you need to look at it as a lifestyle.
Our generation has this feeling that they are invincible, and we are not. This is not only something good to read for those looking to lose weight, but also for those looking for a healthier and more productive lifestyle. There is nothing more attractive and more self-beneficial than being the best possible version of yourself, and taking care of your health is part of that.
Below we have 10 ways to trim off some of those winter pounds and get yourself ready for beach season. It may always seem like a lot of work getting in shape but we've hopefully found 10 ways that will make you more excited for your new abs, than sad about missing pizza.
Though as Dwayne Johnson shows, you can have both! As an added bonus, his legendary cheat-day is outlined below. Let's just say The Rock also lays the smackdown on his kitchen.

5 Eat Breakfast
Your mother was right when she told you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A lot of people have the false understanding that skipping a meal will help them lose weight, but all it is doing them is preventing them from doing just that. Eating breakfast is an especially big help when trying to lose weight. By getting into the habit of eating breakfast every morning, you are in fact doing something incredibly positive for yourself. Make sure that you are starting out your day in the best way you can, by making healthy choices with your first meal of the day.
4 Don't Stop Moving
The trick to burning fat is to not be lazy and to constantly be moving, but you don't need to be going to the gym to be improving your body.
3 Drop The Drink
2 Work Out Daily
1 Reward yourself
When talking about rewards in the world of dieting, we often refer to them as cheat days. Most people don't realize that cheat days are essential to losing weight. Cheat meals should occur at a maximum of once a week, and shouldn't be wasted on something like a bag of candy, but instead, make your cheat meal something of substance like The Rock's.
Cheat meals work because not only do you reward yourself, but you can use it as an opportunity to make sure your body is getting certain types of fats. Just make sure that your one cheat meal doesn't always turn into a cheat day that spoils your diet and the rest of your week's workouts. If you haven't already, you owe it to yourself to check out Dwayne Johnson's legendary 'cheat day' meal that he posted online. It may have been more than just one meal, but who's going to tell The Rock no?
