Honestly, to call myself a zealous follower of diets, I simply will not turn my tongue. On the whole, the style of nutrition described in this article is rather difficult to call a diet in the classical sense of the word. Rather, it can be called a system of some limitations in the overall power scheme.
Just over a year ago, I became a mother. To my great joy, for the period of my interesting position, I gained a minimum of kilograms, which soon after the birth irrevocably left my figure. This fact did not upset me at all, rather the opposite. After all, I became slimmer than before pregnancy. I will make some clarifications. A couple of months after giving birth, I weighed about 53-54 kilograms.
The first time I was on a nourishing mother diet. She brewed cereals, light soups, baked fish and vegetables in the oven. It certainly had a very positive effect on my figure. By the way, my very first topic on Alimero was dedicated to this particular topic. Here it is, if anyone is interested – Here it is.
Honestly, after my daughter turned 10 months old, I relaxed a little (and sometimes a bit too much) and began to pamper myself with all sorts of sweets. Cakes, biscuits and homemade casseroles pleased my husband, but the fold on his tummy did not please him. And then I was visited by the terrible thought that I can really grow fat.
Need to do something.
I couldn’t completely refuse to eat delicacies, so I set limits for myself and made a list of goodies and hazards. And now I will write in more detail.
In which I have limited myself
1. Baking with cream.In place of cakes and cakes with a fat buttery or mega sweet protein cream, casseroles with apples and honey and not especially sweet cereal or nut cookies came.
2. Buns.In order not to look like this wonderful culinary product, I limited myself to eating baking. A maximum of one roll is allowed, and even then for breakfast.
3. Chocolate. Left exclusively black and in small quantities. So to speak For the concept of mood and stimulation of mental activity.
4. Condensed milk. My husband’s favorite sweetness. I do not buy. Too calorie.
5. Butter.I put it just a little bit in porridge. In the morning I can spread a thin layer of toast. In principle, I do not love him too much. Therefore, this restriction is not a problem for me.
6. Fried food– Fried eggs or potatoes. Maximum allow myself to relax once a month. Moreover, it is hardly useful for the stomach and liver.
7. Seeds.Also no more than once a month, if you really want to. And then quite a bit, in order to bring down Wishlist.
What I added to the mandatory menu
1. Almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts.A few pieces in the morning without fail.
2. Dried apricots and raisins.Also a little, but necessary.
3. Kefir.Not every day, but I buy it 3 times a week. My daughter really doesn’t love him. It really upsets me.
4. Fish.In the oven or steamed. Fell in love with these dishes.
5. Apples and pears.We eat with daughters. Sometimes dad treat.
6. Side dishes.Fig. Buckwheat. Pearl barley. And with a minimum of salt.
7. Vegetables and herbs.From grandmother’s garden mostly. Pertushka, lettuce (I planted 4 types), spinach, dill, cucumber, bell pepper and my favorite zucchini.
8. Water. Uncarbonated. At least 5 glasses a day.
Of course, I am not a robot, and sometimes I allow myself too much, like a couple of delicious sweets with tea before bedtime, but I still try to adhere to the established rules.
And what would you recommend to add to my list?
