Orange, apple, banana......I like but I get so bored already. Losing weight is such a numbers game so it's important when it comes to a healthy diet to have healthy low calorie snacks. One of my best healthy diet tips is finding great low calorie snacks that fill you up, don't bore you, and taste great.....why not have it all!?!?!
Healthy Diet Tip For a Low Calorie Snack:
THE MANGO! It's typically not the first fruit choice & when you go to the store not even a fruit that you think to buy on a regular basis..... unless you are my best friend and your dad is Jungle Jim. They always have the best variety of fruit at their house. Okay, back on topic, fruits are great for a low carb diet. The carbs that they have are good carbs bc they contain natural fiber. This means that they break down slower and don't spike your insulin levels as much & fiber is great for your digestive track. The Mango's nutritional data works in a healthy diet. It's a great 100 calorie snack with about 135 calories per fruit.
With summer coming up the mango is very refreshing, tropical, puts me in the mood for fun in the sun, & reminds me that my booty needs to look good is short shorts and a bikini. Soon I will be drinking my Mango Margarita in my bikini, but from now until June it's prime time for getting in super shape. So Mango Now and Mango Margarita by the pool soon.
How to Mango:
1. The ones that are red are more ripe and sweet the more green the more tart.
2. Peel the outside skin & dice it up, the mango has quite a large core.
3. Eat and Enjoy.
4. Mangos are even great to add into meals. Last week I did seasoned shrimp mixed with rice and diced Mango.

One of the best weight loss programs when you have no fitness equipment is to Be Your Own Cardio & Resistance Equipment! Using your own body weight as fitness equipment you can do a total body workout. Running Drills, Plyometrics, & Body Weight Exercises are a G-Reat way to do exercises when you have no weights or cardio equipment.
One of my favorite spots in my gym is the wide open space of my turf runway, especially when I get a whole bunch of sweaty boot campers on it. If you don't have open space no worries you can do them in place. You can design a very effective weight loss exercise plan with a variety of bodyweight exercises.
Top 20 Exercises Using Your Body Weight As Cardio & Resistance Equipment:
3. Side Shuffle (each direction)
4. Single Leg Sprints
5. High Knees
6. Heel to Glute Kicks
7. Grapevine (each direction)
