On New Year’s Eve, all women begin to care for themselves more carefully, so that on New Year’s Eve to look the most irresistible. Many go on a diet. I was no exception. No, I don’t set unrealistic goals, because I’m not going to be skinny and toed, even if I’m going to be hungry for days. Just decided to lose a few pounds in a week.
Lose weight or work
Now I will describe my diet, and, perhaps, it will cause bewilderment of some readers of Alimero. After all, here gathered notable cooks. But I now, by virtue of my employment, have no opportunity to cook a lot. And I want to lose weight too.
And now I have a dilemma: either to refuse an urgent translation and lose money, but to take care of myself, or to remain in the same form, but to do the work. And then I came to the aid of semi-finished products. Are you terrified, imagining yourself high-calorie dumplings, dumplings, pancakes and other harmful products?
The basis of my diet
Do not be afraid for my waist. In fact, I decided to give preference to two products: instant buckwheat and frozen vegetables. I believe that the harm in these products is not much, compared with other fast food.
But why not boil ordinary porridge? – Any reader will think. Now I will answer. Firstly, my husband categorically refuses to eat buckwheat. He does not like this side dish (prefers potatoes), buckwheat with milk resembles a hospital. In the latter, I support him. I have exactly the same association.
And I don’t feel like cooking a pot of porridge for myself. As well as cook each time on a plate of porridge. Besides, instant buckwheat seems to me somehow tastier. I choose the option of no added meat smell or bacon flavor. Although, maybe the whole thing in a nice package.
Attempt to freeze vegetables
I constantly bought such frozen mixes. She stopped doing this when she got married. The husband began to grumble: What, you can not cook some soup yourself? And I tried to freeze the cauliflower.
When after a couple of months I decided to try what happened, I did not like its taste at all. And the yellowish color was also unattractive. Later, I read on the Internet that before freezing it had to be immersed in boiling water for a couple of minutes. I didn’t do this.
Shop vegetable mixes
Deciding to lose weight, I switched to three types of soup mixes: Italian, Imperial and Vegetable bouquet. The names, as you see, are attractive, and they taste very much nothing.
The composition of these mixtures is similar: cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, green peas, in Italy there is still corn. Now my diet consists of soups from these mixtures, of course, without fat and even without salt. On the second I eat boiled meat or cottage cheese. I try to completely do without bread.
Night without doping
And I discovered that my caloric overuse is due to chocolate. I used to find an excuse: for productive mental work, I need food. Black chocolate was a great way to stay awake until I’ve finished my translation.
I thought for a long time and found a less caloric remedy. Now I drink weak coffee with milk. It does not deprive me of sleep all night, like pure black coffee, but at the same time it helps me to cheer up. Yes, I take milk with a fat content of 2.5%.
So, in five days I became lighter and a half kilograms. I think, by the New Year, the 3 kg mark will be overcome. And how do you lose weight for the holiday you, dear readers?
