I always tried to keep myself in good shape, and once I noticed that my favorite dress was not enough for me, I immediately decided to lose weight. But I did not want to starve myself and harm my health, and therefore I developed a whole complex for losing weight.
I started my day with a glass of water. I put water on the table next to the bed, and the first thing I did when I woke up was drinking it. So I prepared my digestive system for breakfast.
Moreover, I drank a glass of water before each meal in about 20 minutes. The secret was in the fact that water knocked down the appetite and helped control what to eat and in what volume.
I drank about 8 glasses of water a day. It also helped fight fluid stagnation. I must say that I gave preference to pure water, without flavors and various flavor enhancers.
I am not an adherent of strict diets, as I believe that this is extra stress for the body. Also, I can not constantly endure the feeling of hunger, so I decided not to starve, but watched what I eat and how I eat.
Instead of eating three times a day, I began to eat five times a day, but in small portions. This should be done at regular intervals in order to maintain a stable blood sugar level.
Frequent meals will stimulate the body’s metabolism, and provide it with fuel for burning calories. I also began to drink less tea and coffee. Each cup of coffee or tea with milk and sugar is as harmful as a piece of chocolate cake.
I added more fresh fruits and vegetables to my menu, because they are sources of vitamins and nutrients. Fresh vegetables are much healthier than cooked or canned, so I did not spend time cooking them, but ate them fresh.
The number of eggs eaten, I decided to reduce to one per day. I could not completely eliminate sweets from my diet, but I began to eat them very rarely.
I also counted the calories eaten during the day. If I ate more than I needed in a week, I actively spent the weekend: cycling, going to the pool or fitness club.
I tried as much as possible to spend time in the fresh air. Jogging in the morning is a great start to a new day! In a week I dumped about 3-4 kg, sometime more, sometimes less … It’s not too much, but without harm to health.
Thus, for several years now I have been preparing my figure for the beach season and quickly lose weight without harm to health, which I wish for you.
