Spring is officially here, which for most women is a sign that summer is coming, which entails bikini season. Oh boy! Not to mention, the climate is finally warming up, rose season is upon us, and there’s nothing better than sitting on a rooftop with an adult beverage( or three) in hand. Ok, wait, let me back up and tell you who I am. My name is Justin Gelband–I’m the guy who generated ModelFit–and now I have my own fitness studio in NYC. But I’ve expended the past 15 years developing the world’s top models and -Alist actors with my workout method( obviously called the JG method ), so I guess that’s why Betches asked me to give you my tips-off on how to get summertime body ready without giving up alcohol.

Most of my clients want have to maintain their bodies, whether it’s for a new role, or for stroll in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. They working very hard and dedicate themselves to being the best they can be. But guess what–with hard work, comes reward! For the implementation of this article, that reward would be alcohol, right ?! Now, I’m not telling you to slug a cocktail after every workout, but you also don’t have to give up a drink at Sunday brunch or a champagne toast at your best friend’s wedding wholly. With my method, I want to help women constructed the connection between their intellects and bodies so they can not only appear their best on the outside, but feel their best too–and I promise, a little alcohol won’t kill you with my method of functional motion based on Movement, Motivation, and Moderation!

Movement

Movement velocities up your body’s metabolism so you can burn the calories that come with alcohol! Dancing or simply moving around during your night out can help burn the calories you’re putting in your body. I would also indicate holding off on food an hour or two before drinking, and not eating at all after party time is over–I know drunk munchies are real, but you’re strong-willed, I believe in you! If you crack under tipsy pressure, and you HAVE to eat, stick with fruits, vegetables, or anything lighting. This way, you are balancing the toxicity of the alcohol with foods that won’t add to it. Especially since heavy sums of sugar and salt are huge contributors to holding water and water weight!

This might seem like a small piece of the puzzle, but motive is a big key to success in getting ready for the summer( and life in general ). If you’re motivated to look fantastic, you will put your energy towards treating your body with respect–that not only entails working out smart, but drinking smart-alecky as well. You don’t need to drink til you drop , no matter how stressful your work week was. Put yourself towards the mindset that you are drinking to enjoy yourself , not drinking just for the sake of get wasted. Then, your hangover days will( hopefully) be behind you and you can wake up in the morning feeling motivated to work out and sweat out the alcohol from the night before, so one equalizes the other.

Moderation

Drinking is going to cause you to gain water weight and can cause other body image problems, so please moderate your drinking! So, if you’re used to drinking three beverages in a night, drink two. If you’re drinking( even one beverage) every day, cut that down to three days per week. If you find these simple ways to cut some corners, you will still be able to get summer body ready without giving up alcohol. Drink red wine instead of white, and be taken into consideration a glass or two doesn’t mean a bottle! We’ve all been there. Look at the calories in the hard alcohol you’re drinking and go with whichever has the least number of calories and sugar. And try to steer away from mixers–it’s the sugars in mixed drinks that really get you. If you can’t drink something straight-out, then add a mixer( sip , no slugging) and have one or two less drinks. This will cut down on the body holding water or gaining weight.

A common delusion in today’s age sets being “skinny” in the same category as being “healthy .” This is not the case, trust me. Sure, you can give up alcohol and maybe ensure some weight loss, but does this improve your overall health? Have a beverage or two, but discipline yourself and commit to exercising, and you’ll be summer ready … but start NOW! Don’t wait until May and say, “Okay JG–I need to transform my body by Memorial Day–help !! ” You have 2 months to get your sh* t together, so zombie walk over to my studio with some betches, and I’ll be there to whip your butt in shape.
