On the eve of the summer season, hot weather and sunny beaches, many people begin to put their bodies in order and try to lose those extra pounds. But often people, having gathered to "dry out", forget that the diet needs to be thought out and made up not for "anyhow", otherwise you can significantly spoil your health and slow down the metabolism. And what is weight loss without a normal metabolism?
The following tips will help you achieve your goal, adhering to which, you can as soon as possible (but do not expect that everything will go away from your belly in a week or two, here you really need to soberly assess the situation) "dry" your body and go to the beach without fear for figure, as well as maintain health and improve metabolism.
Before starting this list, it should be noted that first of all, you must set a goal for yourself and make sure that your willpower is enough not to break down in a couple of days and achieve the desired shape.
12 simple and effective points for the fastest weight loss.
1) Proper nutrition with quality products.
Try to eat simple and “healthy” foods by preparing them yourself. If you can eat raw vegetables, eat them raw. Remember that a product is most beneficial when it is minimally processed, that is, in its natural state - as nature created it.
Avoid various pickles, smoked meats, fast food, etc.
2) Does diet mean no sweets? In fact, this is not entirely true.
What causes numerous breakdowns? Due to the fact that a person, starting a diet, sharply cuts back on sweets, to which he is already accustomed. Therefore, "yummy" must be consumed, but do it strictly under control.
For example, after breakfast or lunch, eat a couple of dates or figs (they are very sweet, they can easily replace sweets), have a snack with fruit, suck a spoonful of honey.
3) After eating, you should not feel the slightest feeling of tension in the stomach.
If you get the feeling that your stomach is overloaded with food (tight), this means that you need to reduce the portion. Avoid overeating. Otherwise, the metabolism will slow down, and food will again be stored by the body in the form of fat.
Regardless of how you eat - 6 or 3 times a day - you can effectively lose weight if you follow all the other points.
4) Plan all meals in advance for the day and don't eat anything in between.
No cookies for coffee with friends, no candy at work, no "snap seeds" on the way! Very often people think that they are doing everything right, that "these are trifles." Limit yourself and say "no" to yourself, and then it will be easier for you to diet and refrain from all unnecessary.
5) Take the last meal 3-5 hours before bedtime. The longer the better.
Weight loss will accelerate if you fall asleep half-starved.
6) Be sure to get enough sleep.
During sleep, anabolic hormones are produced, and it is during this time that most of the subcutaneous fat is burned.
7) During your waking hours there should be several hours of hunger (4-5).
During a famine, fat stores will be consumed as energy.
8) When hungry, drink clean water to "drown" it.
It is effective to drink 0.5 liters of warm water at a time - it well interrupts the appetite.
9) Keeping the mind busy is an effective remedy against hunger.
Always look for something to do to distract yourself and forget about food. It is in a state of boredom that appetite manifests itself strongly, so you need to constantly do something.
10) Eliminate food images from your head and do not meet with them during the day.
When we see food, appetite is greatly aroused, and it is very difficult to resist the next snack. Again, keep your brain busy.
If you live alone, there should be no "junk" products in yours at all.
11) High intensity workouts at least 3 times a week for an hour.
12) Challenge yourself to move as much as possible throughout the day, regardless of training.
Come up with games that require energy, walk more, move more, and think positively while doing this.
