A lot of people talk about summertime and whether or not it’s a good time to lose weight and keep the weight off. It’s a very interesting concept. Believe it or not, a lot of people actually gain weight in the summer. Now, you would think there would be a greater opportunity to exercise. You’d think you would be outside doing more things, but as the temperature increases, a lot of people shut it down. They actually do better in the fall and spring as far as exercise because it’s a little cooler outside. There’s a greater opportunity to get out there and play a sport or go golfing, play tennis, that sort of thing. What you have to do in the summer is make a conscious effort to find those hours when it’s not so hot, and make sure you take advantage of it and get the exercise. Now remember, early evening is often a good time.
