Four years ago, the scale arrow under me swung to 85 pounds, and I resolutely began to lose weight. By the time I tried a bunch of different power systems. They helped, but as soon as I got off the diet, the weight returned in double volume. Then I developed my method of losing weight and in six months lost 25 kilograms.
Mouth on lock
First of all, I said goodbye to several products: mayonnaise, and with it sour cream, bakery products (bread, cakes, rolls and similar donuts), sweets and alcohol – were ruthlessly removed from my menu.
Everything else – fried, fatty – from which, as a rule, refuse, I left. But I was guided by the principle of separate feeding, as I understand it. This means that the main course is separate, the side dish is separate. I ate pasta and potatoes, but never with a piece of chicken or a chop.
How can you lose weight if you have everything, you ask? The secret is in the main principle, which I do not have time to repeat to everyone who wants to lose weight: eat less! And literally.
I read or heard somewhere: in order to lose weight, you need to halve portions. And I took it as a rule. For example, I used to eat two cutlets in one sitting, and neither a cutlet less, or even more. Four years ago, more than one patty did not appear on my plate.
In any diet, as in sports, the regime is important.
1. For myself, I clearly decided to eat strictly three times a day. I literally by the hour painted what time I had breakfast, lunch and dinner at about regular intervals. For example, breakfast – 8.00, lunch – 12.30, dinner – 17.30.
2. I did not eat after six. On me, this principle works flawlessly. In the afternoon we are active, but in the evening – the time of sofas, computers, when calories are not burned, but accumulated. This means that if for some reason the dinner, scheduled from 5.30 pm to 6 pm, did not take place, I was left without supper.
3. I prescribed what I would eat during the day. When you look into the fridge and dreamily look around at your cold friend, it beckons you to pull off something tasty and more. Therefore, I hung a leaf from the menu on the fridge and clearly knew what to get from there.
I wanted to constantly. My stomach has a tendency to shrink and after a week I began to gorge on one cutlet, but after an hour the feeling of hunger returned. But when after the first month I lost ten kilograms, the feeling of hunger seemed to me not so high a price.
After losing the first ten kilograms, I began to indulge myself. Diet is stress, both physical and psychological. In order not to start throwing at people, once a week I arranged for myself a day of gluttony. As a rule, on Saturday I allowed myself fast food, alcohol, chocolate adored by me, and if there was a party, I also did not deny myself anything after six. But the next day – a diet.
After five months, my weight stopped at 65 kilograms. The next month went on to lose five more kilos. The calendar was January – the time of the New Year holidays and I abandoned all my limitations, but the weight did not return.
Since then, my weight ranges from 60 to 65 kilograms. As soon as I reach the 65 kilogram mark, I return to the diet, and in a week the weight goes away. Not only my body has changed, but also my approach to nutrition. I put on the machine twice less food than I could eat four years ago.
Do it once, do it twice
I had to say goodbye to the third, aspiring to the fourth, breast size. Volumes in this part of the body are gone, unfortunately, in the first place.
Perhaps the main mistake – the lack of exercise. Fortunately, I did not have stretch marks, but the skin lost elasticity and firmness. A pouch appeared in the abdomen area, which is noticeable when I bend over. So now, finally, I decided to work on this problem. I roll circles in the pool and do fitness at home.
Sample menu for the day

Dinner: a slice of fried chicken, half a tomato, tea or coffee with one spoon of sugar. OR: soup ladle, tea or coffee.
Dinner: fried cauliflower or any other vegetables. OR: macaroni with cheese, tea.
