You need to start by buying scales, both floor and food. And go!
At the beginning of the path, you need to go to the mirror and say to yourself "I am beautiful, I am proud of myself, I deserve the best! I will walk this path with joy!" This diet requires optimism, positive thinking, and self-support. After achieving each important result (ideally after each lost kilogram), you need to give yourself gifts. It is necessary to plan in advance what exactly you will give yourself for achieving a certain figure. Gifts can be absolutely any, but not related to food: things, travel, manicure, watching your favorite movie, going to the theater, etc.
Important! When you have fulfilled the condition and reached the next checkpoint, you are obliged to make the gift that you promised yourself in advance. You cannot deceive your body. The process of losing weight may simply stop, despite the fact that you continue to follow all the principles of the diet.
It is ideal if your loved ones get involved in this process and support you. They will help with cooking food for other family members, they will not offer alcohol and tempt them with high-calorie foods. At the same time, you have a great opportunity to transfer the whole family to healthy, low-calorie food.
The calorie range that you must adhere to is best determined by a specialist. Usually this is a corridor from 900 to 1,300 Kcal per day.
