How and what to eat for the Summer and Lose Weight ?

It is kind of simple. Because of the heat, eat much less meats and heavy foods. (meat is warm, your body is already hot in the Summer). So water melon cools the body and fills the stomach, so you feel less hungry. Fruits are also cool and they contain a lot of minerals and vitamins and fill you up as well. So by fooling your mind that you are full, you are not hungry and will lose weight.

You can eat different nuts as well. They are a good source of protein will fill you up for longer periods of time, have oils that can stimulate bowl movement and can be a great substitute for heavy foods like meats and poultry.

Exercising still helps, but choose either mornings or evenings so there is less heat and therefore stress on your system. Say 7-11am and/or 6-9pm.

Bulkiest meal should be before 11am and as you get closer to the evening you should be eating less amounts as you will not be able to burn food eaten in the evening. Ideally you should have no food at least 3 hours before sleep. It prepares your body for deep rest, slows down the system for deeper sleep.
