Back in my youth, I formulated several rules for myself. They are able to maintain my body, full-bodied, in a constant tone. Today I want to share these rules with you, dear readers of Alimero.
I can not stick to a diet. It is difficult for me. But I count calories regularly. I believe that for a woman who wants to be slim, the daily caloric content should be more than 1200 calories. And in many diets the calorie content does not exceed 1000. But I now consume 1200-1500 kilocalories per day, I eat well, and at the same time I do not get better.
2. Proper nutrition.
My food is quite balanced. I buy natural products. I do not like fast food. For me, it is important that in my refrigerator constantly be meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, vegetables and fruits. I can afford to eat candy or cookies a day. But for dessert, I prefer dried fruits – and tasty and healthy!
3. Frequent meals.
Instead of the prescribed 3 meals I have 7. I eat every 3 hours. The portions are small, 2 meals consist of fruits and vegetables, and the last reception is a glass of kefir.
4. Water is a healing force.
I drink a lot of water. In general, as you know, the daily rate of at least 1.5 liters of pure water per day. I drink 2 liters, no less, in the winter and from 3 liters of clean water in the warm season. Water has an excellent effect on the body. It nourishes the cells, contributes to their nutrition and rejuvenation. And removes harmful substances.
But it is necessary to drink, as they say, with the mind. I drink 30 minutes before each meal. And after eating, I drink no earlier than 40 minutes. So useful, tested by me and my figure for years.
5. Eat after 18 hours.
Many diets are strongly advised not to eat after 18 hours, but I eat! And I’m slim. Because my last meal was no later than 4 hours before bedtime. And if I go to bed late, which is often the case, and make the last meal before 18 o’clock, then there is a high probability of falling off and abusing something right before bedtime! And, yes, the last meal is kefir!
6. Fruits – strictly up to 16 hours.
Fruits contain a lot of sugar and substances that our body does not process well after 16 hours. Therefore, until this time, I eat fruits, and after that – lean meat and vegetables.
7. Sport is still needed and important!
Well, how to say, sports … I do exercises. I do exercises for the neck, arms, legs. I make bends and squats, shake my press. Finally do the bar. For everything about everything – 30 minutes.
And I take walks. I love to walk! I go at least an hour a day.
