With summer on the way, you might want to shed these extra kilograms that protected you from cold during the winter, but be careful not to risk your health by following a diet too strict, and keep in mind these 5 advices to protect your health
1. Listen to your hunger and satiety
Hunger happens when the previous meal calories have been burned and the body needs “fuel”. When hunger is not felt, it is better not to eat. In fact, eating in a period of satiety further stimulates the production of insulin, a hormone that promotes weight gain.
2. Manage your excesses
After a meal too rich, it is recommended to opt for a low calorie dinner: white fish (150-200 g), vegetables without fat (raw, cooked, in soup…) and 2 yogurts !
3. Drink enough water
Losing weight causes further production of toxins which have to be eliminated. It is therefore important to drink enough (at least 1.5 liters of water per day) to help your digestion and prevent mental fatigue and small headaches. Try to drink water, and moderate your consumption of tea and coffee.
4. Moderate food of lower nutritional interest
It is best to go easy on saturated fats, which tend to raise blood cholesterol. Thus, try to limit your consumption of butter, cream, cheese and fatty meats, not to mention the fats hidden in cookies, pastries, pies and pastries. Eat sweets in moderation, because they will bring mostly sugar, but low in vitamins and other good nutrients. In addition, alcohol, although friendly, is not necessary for your body.
5. Maintain adequate energy intake
To be effective, your diet period should not cause too severe food restriction, or you take the risk of quickly regaining the lost weight. After several weeks or months of low calorie diet, your body has adapted and got used to work with very few calories. But you still need some extra calories: a reasonable rate of weight loss is of the order of 500 g per week.
