Quick Bite: Get your body ready for Spring Break

Spring Break often means exposing one’s swimsuit body, which for some might bring about feelings of insecurity.

These insecurities may lead to crash and fad dieting methods to lose the weight quickly in time for Spring Break. Crash dieting and grueling amounts of exercise can overwhelm the body and become dangerous, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

The Academy recommends small goals, such as eating three types of vegetables a day and working out 30 minutes a day, rather than setting large goals such as losing 10 pounds. If you take small steps, not only will you shed some pounds, but you will be able to keep off the weight long after Spring Break.
