After giving birth, I, like many others, attended to the problem of how to quickly get in shape. I was breastfeeding my daughter, so any diets with strict restrictions did not suit me. I decided to try the System minus 60 from Ekaterina Mirimanova, which I learned about at one of the women’s forums.
This method fits into my rhythm of life and does not interfere with the process of breastfeeding. What is good diet from Mirimanova, so it is that you do not need to completely abandon such favorite, but harmful to the figure products – cakes, chocolates and other hazards. All this can be eaten, but only strictly until 12 o’clock in the afternoon.
When my husband came home from work and ate my favorite glazed curd bars with tea, I comforted myself that I could afford all this in the morning, and it was already morally easier to restrain myself.
The basic principles of the Mirimanova diet
In general, the Mirimanova weight loss system is not so much a restriction in nutrition as a new way of life. The framework of this article does not allow to write all the detailed information on nutrition, as there are very long lists of allowed products and their combinations.
I think they can easily be found on the Internet. Moreover, Katya has her own website and, for sure, there is all the information about this method of losing weight. Therefore, here I will briefly outline the basic principles of this diet.
For breakfast you can eat anything and in any quantities. Of course, provided that you have breakfast before 12 o’clock in the afternoon.
The way of cooking is any, except frying. You can not use oil (even vegetable, its use is allowed only until 14.00), sour cream and mayonnaise.
For lunch you can eat any food, but you can combine them only on the principle of separate food. You can not combine with each other carbohydrates and proteins (potatoes, pasta, legumes with meat / fish). You can not eat soup with potatoes in meat broth or soup with potatoes and meat / fish for the second. Flour and sweet after 12.00 is completely excluded.
Dinner is even harder. According to this diet, there are only 7 options for dinner, which must be alternated. These options are:
1. Fruits (except bananas and grapes) and dairy products. Drinks are allowed to drink juice, tea / coffee without sugar, water, red wine, fermented milk drinks.
2. Fruits and vegetables (except potatoes, legumes, eggplants, avocados, mushrooms, pumpkins, corn). Drinks are allowed juices, tea / coffee without sugar, water, dry red wine
3. Fruits and cereals (white rice and rice noodles are forbidden, porridge on milk is not allowed). Drinks are allowed juice, tea and coffee without sugar, water, dry red wine
4. Vegetables and dairy products (except banned vegetables, dairy products with a fat content of not more than 5%). Drinks are allowed to drink juice, tea / coffee without sugar, water, red wine, fermented milk drinks.
5. Vegetables and cereals (except white rice and forbidden vegetables). From drinks – juice, tea and coffee without sugar, water, dry red wine
6. Meat, fish, eggs (sausage, sausages, fatty, salty, pickled). From drinks – tea and coffee without sugar, water, dry red wine
7. Dairy products, cheese, rye crackers. The fat content of dairy products is not higher than 5%, cheese of any fat content, but the maximum amount is 50 gr. You can drink tea and coffee without sugar, water, dry red wine, fermented milk drinks
You can not have dinner later than 18.00, if you do not have time, then you will have to stay without it. This item was not very convenient for me personally to comply with, because just at that time we were walking with the child. So I had dinner at seven, sometimes at half past seven. I do not think that this is so critical, since I still go to bed well past midnight.
When losing weight on this system, it is necessary to add physical activity. It can be anything – fitness, running, swimming, exercising at home, dancing or banal exercises in the morning. It is important that physical activity in principle was.
Personally, I first went to the pool to swim, then enrolled 2 times a week for aqua aerobics. Still sometimes in the morning she was engaged in body flex. I can’t afford more than that because there’s not much time left for myself because of a child.
In general, the method is very good for nursing mothers who want to get in shape. I managed to lose a couple of kilos so far, but I do not strictly follow this system, and in the summer I completely abandoned it. Now I am going with new forces to take on myself. The only thing I can not live completely without sweet after 12.00, but I think this is a matter of habit.
