There are a great many diets. Some offer us to eat only red foods, in others it is argued that you can not eat fats and carbohydrates, in the third … You can enumerate ad infinitum. But, no matter what diet you sit on, it is worth remembering a few mistakes that most slimming people make.
Some of the points listed below were revealed by me, others I read from well-known and not-so nutritionists, doctors, and tried it on myself. Although, to be honest, only after pregnancy and childbirth, I lost weight to the size I needed (which was not possible for many years), because I was very afraid to harm the child, and I ate very, very correctly.
There was a time when I went to bed at 2 o’clock in the morning, and got up at 10. Yes, and for many the pace of life now is such that before 12 you cannot sleep. There is not recommended for 2.5-3 hours before bedtime, and then it is worth to drink a glass of kefir for better bowel work.
A limited diet or fasting gives only a temporary effect. Yes, you can lose weight in a week at 5 kilograms. Of these, 4 is fat, 1 is muscle mass. And when you return to a normal diet, the body will quickly pick up all those kilograms, and even more just in case, all of a sudden you suddenly think about starving. And it will be pure fat.
Most of the reactions in the body are based on water. And without water, the metabolism slows down, the head starts to ache, I want to sleep, and so on. Need to drink, preferably not with meals. Not less than 1.5 liters per day (at least 8 glasses are written everywhere, but for me, for example, 0.4 liters glasses, and I cannot drink 3 liters).
Drinking water half an hour before meals and one hour after, you can burn about 120 calories, which is equal to the energy consumption of a 20 minute run.
4. Do not snack.
Between breakfast, lunch and dinner should be 2-3 snack. But it should not be an advertised chocolate bar, but yogurt, apple, muesli. In general, it is advisable to eat every 2-3 hours, not less, not more. If you eat more often, then you load the stomach, less often – the metabolism slows down again.
5. Do not eat sweet and flour.
And to break at the sight of oatmeal, having eaten off cutlets with nutella. In general, with proper nutrition, sweet should not be wanted, it is rather a psychological dependence. But if you really want – you can before lunch. And you can replace the dried fruit in small quantities or bread.
By the way, this experience was conducted. Women at work put a box of candy. One group – 2 meters from the workplace, the second and third – on the desktop, but the last box was transparent, and all the sweets were visible. Guess who ate the most candy? In this case, women thought that they ate about the same. So take away all the goodies away from the eyes and there will be no temptations.
6. Do not eat fat.
As a result, get hair falling out, lack of menstruation, headaches, missing breasts … a lot in the body depends on fat and fatty acids. Your heart is 90% running on fatty acids. Cheese, fatty fish, vegetable oil, nuts – you need to eat.
7. Not necessarily to play sports.
Required. See point 2. But what exactly to do – you decide. I chose to run in the park.
Continuing next time.
