Losing weight after giving birth is a problem for every woman, I guess. Having fattened my breasts, I was tormenting myself with diets and the result was the same: I lost weight very slowly and quickly gained weight, it was enough one or two days of breakdown from the diet. In the end, I decided that I would no longer torture myself. And then my friend advised me to pick the most necessary option. And I did it!
Everyone knows about the benefits of water. Nevertheless, we list its most important advantages: 1) The brain consists of 90% water, so it feels dehydration first, reacting with mental exhaustion and fatigue. 2) The feeling of thirst and hunger – almost the same brain signals, so often we confuse sensations. 3) When the body is dehydrated, the liver, which breaks down fat, begins to help the kidneys, and you gain weight.
And this is not all its advantages. So drinking a glass of water in the morning is useful. A glass of water with lemon invigorates.
I don’t remember exactly where, but I read that they don’t recommend drinking milk and having something milk for breakfast, they say, it will be immediately deposited on the sides and other problem areas. For myself, I found an alternative: cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is rich in calcium and other vitamins. Therefore, 200 grams for breakfast and full before lunch for sure. And most importantly nothing at breakfast!
I eat vegetables and meat for lunch. Since there is a small child in the house, I transferred myself and my family to diet food – it is either boiled or baked. And the meat is mostly chicken, beef, turkey. Variants of preparations are full, so you can not worry about the topic of diversity.
I have no dinner as such. This is either yogurt or kefir. After 18.00 I try not to eat. At first, of course, it was very hard to refuse. But dinner I began to replace either fruit, or water with lemon, or yogurt. And it became even better and easier to feel.
And of course, the question arises, how to treat yourself? But what about sitting at home, do not drink tea between main meals? With regards to sweet, it is possible to 12. Since then the body is already working slowly and everything is postponed again. So sweet, if I really want to go straight, I eat after breakfast in 1-2 or a little bit (to take a soul).
And with snacks, my conversation became short: if you really want to eat, then fruits (apples, bananas, oranges), no teas and coffee. Returning partially to the topic of water, some liquids increase the water balance, some decrease. By myself, I noticed, coffee accurately reduces. After him, I am madly thirsty. So with such a diet there are no disruptions, or you are exhausting yourself.
Bottom line: in January, my weight was 67, now 59, and this is far from the limit. From friends, no one will know, all close delighted with the results. Husband happy 🙂
