From overweight, I suffered from childhood. With a very small height of just over one and a half meters, my weight ranged from 58 to 64 kg. I managed to lose weight without much effort only at the moment when I was breastfeeding my daughter. After weaning, my weight began to increase rapidly until it reached 64 kg.
It was then that I decided to pull myself together and start the fight with hateful kilograms. At that time I tried many diets – not very effective. One of those that I liked the most, I want to share today with the readers of Alimero.
I was offered to try the oatmeal diet by my mother, who, on the advice of her friend, followed it for about two weeks before resting on the sea and dropped 4 kg in this way. Oatmeal diet options are many. Having studied a sufficient amount of information on the Internet, I made up for myself a new, optimal for my way of life option.
The most effective, according to nutritionists, is a mono diet, that is, the absence of any other products, except for oatmeal, in the diet. For me, this option seemed too strict, I knew in advance that for more than two days I could not hold out. Therefore, I left in the diet of fruits and berries, as well as cucumbers and cabbage. It was just summer, and I didn’t want to limit myself in vitamins.
For breakfast, lunch and dinner, I ate porridge. Since the use of sugar in such a diet is prohibited, I occasionally could add half a teaspoon of honey to the dish. Also added dried fruit to it: prunes or dried apricots.
I also refused coffee, juices and other drinks. Saw water and green tea. By the way, it was thanks to this diet that I taught myself to drink a glass of pure water half an hour before meals and stick to this rule five years later.
In such a simple way, you can significantly reduce your appetite, therefore, eat a portion of a much smaller volume than usual. In addition, a sufficient amount of fluid speeds up the metabolism in the body, which is especially important for losing weight.
Nutritionists say that the oatmeal diet is the only one of all that has no contraindications. Most often, diets are prohibited for people suffering from gastritis, gastric ulcer or other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. But the oatmeal diet, by contrast, is considered useful. The main thing is to approach everything wisely.
I can say from my own experience that gastritis, which I have been suffering from since my school years, did not worsen during the diet. On the contrary, I began to feel better.
On an oatmeal diet, I lasted a week. During this time I dropped 2.5 kg. Given that I usually lose weight very slowly, this is a great result. In addition, my skin, prone to rashes, has visibly cleansed. So I can safely advise the oatmeal diet to all participants of Alimero.
