I decided to lose weight! In the first week I lost 4 kilograms! Want to know how? Now I will tell everything.
After the birth of my daughter, I could not have the courage and lost the 10 kilograms that I had during my pregnancy. I, as it were, didn’t try too hard, because I was breastfeeding, and at that time it was not recommended to create a deficit of nutrients.
But now breastfeeding is left behind, it’s time to take care of yourself and your appearance. But which power system to choose? And then how to keep the achieved result?
Difficult choice of power system
Various power systems are now a dime a dozen. They all promise stunning long-term results. Separate meals, rational nutrition, raw foods, mono-eating, calorie counting, fasting days and hunger strikes … I can list for a very long time. But somehow everything is either too categorical for such a lover of freedom in food as I am, or I can’t become boring.
But then it turned out that one of my friends is undergoing a course of weight loss through a social network with some nutritionist. You know, when everyone is going online for a symbolic amount, they are given a task, they read out the rules and together they take some kind of weight loss course.
I really liked the idea of a joint marathon. Somehow it motivates me that I am not alone, that I have a social circle where I can share my results, and I also decided to participate.
While I am in the program just a little more than a week, but the result is obvious – minus 4 kilograms, a wonderful sense of self and a crazy belief that I will succeed.
For the first couple of weeks, the principle of nutrition is as follows: you can eat 7 any vegetables (except potatoes), 4 any fruits, 70 grams of seeds or nuts and 150 grams of lean boiled meat (preferably chicken breast) per day. You can not drink tea and coffee, add salt and sugar to food. At most, it is slightly salted boiled meat.
One serving of food should be no more than a glass. And eat should be fractional – every 2 hours.
The first two days it was very difficult for me. I’m so used to sweeties. For me, tea with two spoons of sugar was not only a pleasant drink, but also a way to exhale and relax.
On the second day I was a walking bare nerve. But by the evening everything was over and still everything is quiet and calm in my attitude to sweets. And I drink herbal teas now. It turns out that they are very tasty and without added sugar.
I really like in this system seeds. Very much they help out the first time. As long as 70 grams are cracked, your mouth will get tired.
And I also love vegetables and fruits. And then with them the freedom of choice. You want to eat grapes, you want bananas … There is no feeling of being slighted in something and I really like it.
It is very convenient that the diet can be planned in the morning. Put food in containers and live in peace, without calculations and suspensions.
The wonderful feeling of being more slender motivates to further movement with great force, I must admit. For a long time I did not admire my reflection in the mirror. I had a more oval face, my tummy became much smaller and I even changed the clothes by one size.
In general, I understand that such a big minus is mainly due to the leaving of food remnants from the intestines and excess water, and that in the future the loss of fat mass will not be so huge, but the mood is not worse. I see that I decrease and the weight is not the main thing for me.
It seemed as though I had an unshakable faith that I would succeed and halfway through the return of the old forms.
And what food system do you try to stick to when you need to lose a few extra pounds?
