Before heading out to the sun-drenched shores of Gold Coast, we at Queensleigh Apartment encourage vacationers to prep up for the summer by keeping fit and following some good advice on how to look great through healthy diet tips:

Water, water, and more water

Your body tends to get dehydrated especially with the ceiling temperatures during summer. In order to avoid sunstroke and dehydration we recommend our vacationers at Broadbeach holiday apartments to always drink water every so often especially when you are outdoors or engaging into strenuous activities.

Chilled drink is a NO NO

When you’re trying to cool down after your morning jog, avoid chilled drinks. For sure it can keep you cool and refreshed, but most health experts advise not to take in cold drinks as it slightly constricts the blood vessels in your skin that hinders the release of body heat.

Freshest refreshments

In order to achieve a healthy figure and avoid gaining more weight, steer away from alcohol, caffeinated and carbonated drinks since it is known that these beverages have high contents of sugar as well as preservatives. It is also ideal to drink fresh fruit juices that provide fibre and replenish lost nutrients in your body.

Veggie factor

Aside from the exceptional nutritional value that fresh veggies and fruits provide, it also aids in keeping you healthy while cutting down your weight.  We often remind our vacationers at our beachfront apartments in Broadbeach that it is also best to avoid indulging on salty and fatty foods like chips and some fast food junks.

Cool as a cucumber

Avoid winter veggies and fruits such as beetroot, radish, spinach, pineapple and grapefruit. Instead pick the fruits and vegetables of the season such as water melon, oranges, cucumber, celery and tomatoes which can help in hydrating your body during the warm summer months.

Aside from taking in healthy foods and avoiding fast food junks, it is also advisable to keep an active lifestyle. While vacationing at our cosy yet cheap Broadbeach apartments, take brisk morning walks by the long stretch of shorelines of Gold Coast.
