How to lose weight? The right way
As long as humanity remembers itself, the problem of excess weight has existed for so long. A hundred years ago, fullness was a sign of wealth and beauty, but in our time everything has changed exactly the opposite.
Today, mostly wealthy people can boast of beautiful slender forms, and middle-income people do not have the means to do so.
It is believed that for healthy food and gyms you need to have a lot of money and free time. But we assure you that this is nothing more than a stereotype. In order to get in shape and then keep it, you only need your desire.
First, the moment you decide it’s time to lose weight, you need to realize that your eating habits didn’t start in the last couple of weeks, but have been developed over the years. Therefore, prepare for the fact that getting used to a new lifestyle will take some time. It is to a lifestyle, and not to debilitating diets.
Let’s stick to diets. This is a thankless job. Yes, if you need to lose, for example, 5-7 kilograms in the shortest possible time, diet or fasting will help you.
But, firstly, it is terribly harmful to the body, and secondly, as soon as you return to your usual diet, the weight that you have lost with such difficulty will return to you, and will also drag a couple of kilos on top. Why is this happening? Let’s see.
The state of our figures depends on the metabolic rate. And the more we eat, the better the metabolism.
When you go on a diet, you make your body starve. Metabolism slows down, your body realizes that you are starving it, and it begins to store fat in reserve.
So, contrary to everything that you previously thought about the fight against excess weight, remember this. The body needs vitamins and minerals. Mandatory for its work are fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Therefore, completely eliminating fats or carbohydrates, you will only harm yourself.
So let’s figure out how to CORRECTLY lose weight.
To date, hundreds of books on nutrition have been written and published.
What is it? Water. Remember this word and never forget. Water, when used properly, prevents the deposition of fat. First of all, waking up in the morning, drink a glass of water, or better – two. Ideally, add a few drops of lemon juice.
This will wake up your body.
The rules for drinking water are simple:
half an hour before each meal, drink 1-2 glasses.
Never drink while eating. And 40 minutes after eating treat yourself to tea or coffee. But remember that by adding sugar or cream to these drinks, you fill them with empty calories. In total, you need to drink at least two liters of water per day.
Breakfast is a must. This is quite difficult to get used to if you always only drank coffee in the morning and did not think about food.
With a hearty breakfast, you tell your body that the day has begun. The metabolism will begin its work, and the body will thank you. By simply adding breakfast to your daily schedule, you will throw off your first kilograms.
You need to eat at least three times a day. A hearty breakfast and lunch, and dinner should either be completely removed, or there are protein products. A few words about this.
Protein food is, first of all, seafood and fish, as well as meat. The fact is that the body spends a considerable amount of calories on the processing of protein foods, so such food is most desirable for weight loss.
And it is best to eat 5-6 times a day, but eat no more than 150-200 g at a time. In this case, the metabolism will occur without stopping, and fat will not be deposited at all.
The last snack of the day should be no later than 4 hours before bedtime. And, of course, do not forget about sports. No one forces you to pull dumbbells in the gym for several hours a day. But aerobics or just walking for an hour a day will help your venture.
Good luck in your endeavors, dear ones! And remember, you need to lose weight correctly!
