I have long realized that you can lose weight only by reducing the amount of food absorbed. I had to think about it seriously, since I am inclined to be overweight and, standing on the scales after the holidays, the figure shocked me – 80 kg. I decided to throw blood from the nose at least 10 kg.
But how to cope with this problem, did not know. After all, all diets are based on the fight against hunger. Then I took up this issue in detail. So I learned and experienced in several ways.
I decided to start with something that seemed to me easy. The method is based on the use of low-calorie foods. I made a list of products that do not contribute to the accumulation of fat, and, accordingly, can help to lose weight. The first in the list of products that can fill the stomach and soothe it, but without the content of excess fat and carbohydrates, was kefir.
Kefir contains valuable milk proteins, it is considered a very nutritious product that is actively involved in the work of the intestine. Then kefir seemed to me a universal and magical tool. Kefir well saturated, I saw it in liters, replacing them with food. She stopped at the variant of two liters of kefir per day, in portions of three hundred grams.
I sat on this diet for about 2 weeks, did not notice much effect (the weight did not decrease), and the kefir could not drink anymore. I decided to try something else.
A friend advised to switch to vegetables. I love cucumbers, cabbage, tomatoes, radishes, chop any greens, add a little vegetable oil (preferably olive oil). Any of these vegetables can be eaten separately, as they contain mostly water, they contain at least carbohydrates, no fats at all, but many necessary vitamins and minerals.
I can quench the feeling of hunger with salads quite effectively. Hunger does not bother, and do not want to run to the refrigerator every 5 minutes. At the moment, I use mainly salads, and I slowly began to lose weight, I consider 2 kg in 2 weeks to be a good result.
In the breaks between salads, I have a snack on apples. Their health benefits are undoubted, carbohydrates are low in them, and fats are not contained. A couple of apples relieve me from hunger at any time of the day.
You can also use a cocktail of low-fat cottage cheese and egg whites. Thanks to protein food, you can well reduce your weight. After all, lean protein foods underlie many diets. When I have a strong feeling of hunger and apples with salads do not help, I eat three or four egg whites (throw out yolks) and vegetable salad.
For me, a great way to fight hunger is a cocktail of my own invention: 200 g of low-fat cottage cheese, I mix 200 ml of water in a blender and drink. This cocktail is very nutritious, perfectly satisfies hunger. For taste, I add half an apple or a few strawberries to the mixer. But I try not to abuse this cocktail, otherwise the weight loss slows down.
Combining all these three methods, I achieved good results, and most importantly, I did not harm my body. I hope my experience will be useful.
