I never watched my weight, 54 kg with height of 168 cm suited me. After the birth of my son, I settled at home, taking care of the child and the household. The fact that the body began to grow, I did not even think.
The realization that the weight is changing and not for the better, came to me only a year later, when I decided to wear my favorite purple dress for my son’s birthday. The day before the holiday, I wanted to try it on and … I could not.
I have no scales at home, so in the evening I ran to my girlfriend. 65 kg – I could not believe my eyes! To grow thin, urgently to grow thin – this thought began to pursue me.
Leafing through magazines in search of a way to lose weight, I saw a diet of ballerinas. I immediately recalled Maya Plisetskaya not to eat it, and I already wanted to turn the page (this method is not for me!), But then my eyes focused on the daily menu of ballet dancers. I really liked it – quite satisfying. And if you can so eat and be slim, I decided to read about this diet.
Principles of diet
The basic principles of this diet:
1. Most of the diet should be carbohydrates (bread, oatmeal, rice, buckwheat, vegetables and fruits). They give the necessary energy.
The second place is occupied by proteins: chicken meat, lean fish and dairy products with fat content up to 2.5%.
In third place – fats. Although it is believed that they should be as small as possible, this opinion is wrong. If the body is limited in fats, it will go to the extreme – will begin to accumulate them at the earliest opportunity. Therefore, fats should be present in the diet, but mostly in the form of vegetable oils.
2. All products that contribute to weight gain should be excluded. These include muffins, sugar, convenience foods, pickles and smoked meats, beer and soft drinks.
3. The most high-calorie food should be served for breakfast, then you can not be afraid that it will settle on the sides.
4. You need to eat 5 times a day, in small portions, then the food is better absorbed, and a strong feeling of hunger does not have time to appear.
5. Dinner may be after 18.00, but you need to pick up low-calorie foods: vegetables, baked fish.
Ballet dancers diet menu
And here is the menu itself, thanks to which I decided on this diet.
8.00 50 g low-fat cottage cheese (you can add fresh berries), porridge on the water, a sandwich (a loaf of cheese), a cup of coffee or tea without sugar.
11.00 Apple, natural yogurt, 200 g of freshly squeezed juice (grapefruit or orange) or green tea.
14.00 Vegetable soup or 100 grams of buckwheat (rice) with a slice of boiled chicken meat, a salad with fresh vegetables.
17.00 Loaf with cheese, apple, green tea
21.00 100 g stewed vegetables or fresh vegetables, a piece of baked fish
How I turned into a ballerina
This diet suited me almost completely, and I started it the very next day. The most difficult was the refusal of sweets to me, but there were so many meals that I forgot about sweets very soon.
I changed the menu a little: I made supper at 19.00, I ate not only apples from fruits, but oranges, tangerines, drank not only yogurt, but also kefir, ryazhenka.
On a diet, I planted and husband. He did not like this idea at first, but when he saw his portions (I did 2-3 times more than myself), I realized that it was possible to live on diet.
I lasted on such a diet for 4 weeks. During this time, I have left 7 kg. Then I relaxed a bit and began to allow myself sweets and smoked meats, but still, after 2 months, I lost 3 kg. Total result – 10 kg.
1 extra kg I left as a souvenir. 🙂
