Spring comes slowly. Soon everyone will take off their warm clothes, and will illuminate the world with their smile and beautiful figure. Have you put on a couple of extra pounds over the winter? It doesn't matter, there is still time to put yourself in order. You should not starve and lick your lips on every cake, just introduce a few "weight-loss" rules into your life right now.
Water is an excellent thirst quencher as well as hunger. If you have eaten recently, and the stomach is already actively "asking" for food - drink some water, it will help to survive the feeling of hunger. Yes, yes, it is the feeling of hunger, and not real hunger, that makes people constantly eat. As a result, the volume of the stomach increases, you eat more and more, and you spend energy as before.
Drink water or green tea before meals. Make yourself some aromatic tea 20-30 minutes before lunch, sit down and calmly drink a cup. Brewing tea will calm you down, while a hot drink will reduce your appetite, and you will eat less at lunch. By the way, tea contains many useful substances that have a positive effect on the human body.
Drinks from herbs, raspberry branches, flowers will not only help digestion, but also increase immunity. Useful formulations can be collected on their own in the summer, or you can buy ready-made ones at the pharmacy.
The five spoon rule
The "five tablespoons" rule will help you maintain proper nutrition, speed up your metabolism and improve your figure.
Observing this rule, you should eat a volume of food equal to 5 tablespoons. In grams, this will be approximately 150 grams. This volume is quite enough to hold out for 2-3 hours without food, while using up all the accumulated energy.
As already mentioned, it is worth eating at intervals of 2-3 hours. 2 hours should be observed when eating vegetable and fruit dishes, and 3 hours - with heavy protein and carbohydrate foods. Also, with this diet, you can treat yourself to sweets, but preferably in the morning. With this diet, you will eat 5-6 times a day.After 6 pm, it is allowed to eat, but only light vegetable or fruit dishes (except for banana, grapes).
If you need to lose a decent amount of weight, then exclude fried, smoked, pickled foods and white bread from your diet. Spend yourself once a week fasting days on vegetables, dairy products, fruits, cereals on the water.
You need to exercise in the morning, or better - in the morning, before breakfast. This will help your body use up energy from fat stores, not food. Classes should last at least 30-40 minutes, because only after 20 minutes of intensive training begins to burn fat reserves. If you don't have time for fitness, then do your morning exercises yourself for about 15 minutes. This will wake up your body and start your metabolism.
Walking is a good exercise. Wear comfortable shoes before work and walk to work. This will be great for your appearance and stamina.
Be beautiful this spring. Take care of yourself, and your body will reciprocate you.
