I remember, there were times when I had no idea about any inscriptions on the jars. Moreover, these inscriptions surprised me and introduced me to bewilderment: For whom are they being written?
But one day my girlfriend came from Ireland, thin as a chip. Imagine how thin she was, if I walked down the street directly in front of her and did not recognize, I looked back only at shout and laughter.
On this day, our quartet gathered for a meeting. Lenka naturally became the center of attention. And this time we were interested not in life in Ireland, but as a friend lost weight ?? After all, even it was difficult to believe that this is her – our pampushechka!
Lena said that for some time already sitting on a high-calorie diet. It calculates the calorie content of products and consumes no more than 1200 calories per day.
Most of all I was interested in what you can eat 2 pieces of pork per day and get this rate. And you can eat huge bowls of salads throughout the day and even eat a piece of chocolate if the daily rate of calories does not exceed 1200.
The inscriptions on the jars and magic scales
Lenka taught me to use inscriptions on jars, calculate proportions (grams / calories), write down everything eaten in a notebook and add daily results.
I decided not to postpone the acquired knowledge on the back burner and started a miracle diet immediately. Tomorrow I found calorie tables on the Internet. I chose the products that I like to eat; I rejected what I could strangle and made up the diet for a week.
After a week, it seemed to me that I still had a large daily norm, because I uncontrollably wanted the weight to go straight to an avalanche. Then I bought myself a scale, on which it was possible to dial the product code when weighing, after which the calories contained in it appeared on the screen.
Moreover, girls, scales showed calorie content of some dishes. A special book was attached to the scales, where a code was assigned to each of the popular dishes. With the scales, I became calmer, I got the confidence that I eat no more than 1200 calories per day.
Why not less?
Some friends asked me why I do not eat even less? Allegedly, if I withstand such a rate of calories, so I can and even more restrict myself in food.
But I knew that 1200 is the norm of the female body in order to survive, i.e. You need to eat so many calories to think, to do housework, etc. In this way, I controlled both slow but reliable weight loss and body activity.
At that stage of life (after two births in a row) the caloric restriction helped me a lot. Then I changed a few diets, but always remembered that my lifestyle has a caloric rate!
Decrease in norm and side effects
For the past five months, I’ve been on a tight diet. And, in spite of the fact that it is allowed by the diet, I limited myself also by calories. On some days, my body was receiving significantly less than 1000 calories per day.
When several of these days followed each other, I felt tired, sluggish, apathetic and inactive. I was constantly haunted by sleepiness; Actually I was saved by a dream. The body demanded more sleep to make up for the lack of energy coming from the products. And I came to the conclusion: if there is a norm established by nutritionists, then we must follow it.
Gym and other
Today I studied the advice of nutritionists, got the formulas and calculated how many calories a day I should consume, having low weight, high height, solid age and a few hours of the gym per week.
It turned out the ultimate number for my mind – 1830 calories.
Girls, looking at this number, I felt a bully. But I quickly figured that it was only 14-15 bananas a day and somehow it became easier.
And yet, I am afraid that if I start to eat so many calories sharply, then my weight will also jump sharply upwards. What do you think?
I have not yet decided whether to increase the rate of calories, if in principle I feel tolerably, I just want to sleep for 7-8 hours.
Maybe you have this experience, tell me what to do?
