Recently, I read one of the girls in the topic, that losing weight for her is already a hobby. That’s about myself I can say the same thing;) I lose weight so long ago that now I probably know almost everything about food and diets, calorie counting and glycemic index. Oh, and how many experiments were there!
I no longer experiment with a hunger strike and hard diets, because this is sheer stress for the body. But I found a way to lose weight without any special diets and strict restrictions. How? Let me tell you how I do it. Although I am sure that you yourself know everything, but as they say, repetition is the mother of learning 🙂
As for food
Mayonnaise. Oh, how much was said – it was talked about this product;) And indeed, there is nothing useful in it – only solid calories. And I, it seems, did not eat it too much, but then I would add it to one salad, then to another. And in the end, 500 g of mayonnaise was eaten in a week. And my wholesome olive oil was missing at this time in the far corner of the cabinet. Now it’s the other way around – it mayonnaise misses on the shelves in the store, and oil is used;)
Sugar and sweets. Sugar in its pure form for 100 years I have not put either in tea or in coffee. But pancakes and pancakes I like to be sweet, so I always add a lot of sugar to them. Now I try a little less, better to smear pancakes with honey, then at least there will be some benefit. A purchased sweets replaced dried fruit.
Flour products. Buns, pies, pies, pizza … Oh, I love this thing, especially fresh and still cushy. But they settle on the sides instantly;) The same goes for bread. Fresh, fragrant humpback white loaf replace with a small piece of black bread, preferably yesterday’s and slightly dried.
Raw vegetables and fruits. Especially seasonal and local. This is an undoubted benefit for the figure, and for health. In addition, many of them have a negative caloric content, that is, for their digestion requires more energy than these products contain.
Water. Good old habit of starting the day with a glass of water and drinking 2 liters during the day. Metabolism is in order, and the brain will not dry;)
Kashi, namely, unrefined and unpolished cereals. Excellent source of slow carbs.
Plate. Or rather, its size and volume. Here for me there is a difference with which dish there is. The same portion may be in a small plate, and it will be full, and maybe in a big one, and the plate will seem empty. Therefore, I want to take an additive. Anyway, I love miniature dishes 🙂
Food in front of the TV. Well, I can not eat in the kitchen when alone at home. Pulls me to the TV or to the computer. In general, I noticed on my own that the reverse reflex was then worked out: once I turned on the TV, I needed to chew something.
Dinner. My experience has shown that it is a silly idea to refuse dinner. There are until 6 in the evening, and then hanging the lock on the fridge will only help those who go to bed at 8-9 o’clock in the evening. But this luxury of sleep is clearly not for me, so my last meal was 4 hours before bedtime, but not at 17-59;)
Relaxation. Go to bed on time (no later than midnight) and sleep for 8 hours. I thought it was a dream. But you know, motivated by the fact that according to some data, those who have a chronic lack of sleep, often suffer from overweight. After all, the body feels stress and therefore accumulates fat. And overgrown with cellulite. And I wanted to get enough sleep and be slim! Besides, she noticed that at night a brutal appetite always wakes up, and so it pulls me to make a foray into the refrigerator;)
In general, I was convinced that our food addictions are just habits that can be changed, just try a little. In addition, to lose weight, not necessarily starve yourself or eat a cabbage leaf per day;)
And how do you keep your weight normal without any special diets?
