I recently told on the pages of Alimero how I found myself the motivation for losing weight. I specifically took care of myself and in the first month I lost 4 kg. For me, this is progress! Now I will tell you what I did to achieve this result.
1. Replaced dinner with raw vegetables and fruits..
I replaced the usual high-calorie dinner with light and very healthy food. I began to eat only vegetables and fruits. Most often these were vegetable dishes. I ate cabbage salad leaves, cucumbers, tomatoes, nibbled carrots. Rarely added an apple, grapefruit or oranges to her plate. Citrus fruits are my favorite fruits. It turns out that they help break down fats.
Once a friend came to visit me. I began to treat her dinner. And I myself sit and chew a cucumber salad. She was very surprised, saying that it is impossible to eat at all. She ate cottage cheese with cookies. This I eat only in the morning.
In general, I noticed that if you eat protein food for breakfast and lunch, then light vegetables, rich in fiber, are saturated in the evening, like a full-fledged dinner. By the way, I also discovered spinach. It is very nourishing and tasty! So I did not go hungry in the evenings.
2. Saw 2 liters of water per day.
I taught myself to drink at least 2 liters of pure water a day. Many have told me that there will be swelling. No, I will say right away, there was never any swelling.
Only then, when I had a chance meeting with an endocrinologist, I found out that they do not swell from clean, still water. But from sweet carbonated drinks, tea, coffee juices and compotes – this is in the order of things. So I made friends with clean water.
3. Fasting drank a glass of hot water.
I also drink a glass of hot water before breakfast. I read that it helps to improve digestion, improves metabolic processes. It also helps against constipation. During the diet, I sometimes have this. But not now. Still hot water helps me calm down the cleared appetite.
4. Sweets ate only until 12 noon.
I did not completely limit myself to everything. This is also bad for my body. I am by nature – that kind of sweet tooth. And if I do not eat sweet in the afternoon, then it means that I will suffer and can break loose in the evening.
After reading the article that until 12 o’clock in the afternoon sweets do the least harm, I was delighted. Now in the morning I can eat both cookies and candy, knowing that I’m not hurting my diet. Yes, I even allow myself a piece of cake or pie. I eat what I want, but only until 12 o’clock in the afternoon and losing weight!
This diet is very convenient for me. The result – minus 4 kg per month – too! How do you like my diet? What can you advise? How do you lose weight?
