To remove extra pounds that have imperceptibly settled on your sides over the winter, you need to show not only strength of character, but also cunning, which will significantly bring you closer to the desired result.
A third of spring has already flown by, and therefore it’s time to pull yourself together and start working on the ideal figure. To remove extra pounds that have imperceptibly settled on your sides over the winter, you need to show not only strength of character, but also cunning, which will significantly bring you closer to the desired result.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about losing weight is strict diets. Yes, they are able to get rid of excess fat in the shortest possible time, but there is one “but”: your figure will return to its previous state as soon as you stop adhering to an extreme diet. The body, being under stress, will immediately begin to demand nutritious food and stock up on calories in a tripled regimen, and health problems acquired after severe malnutrition will become a bonus.
It is for this reason that we suggest that you approach the process of losing weight in a comprehensive manner, adhering to the basic rules of a productive and safest weight loss.
1. Balanced diet
This point is the most important in a healthy weight loss system. Your daily menu must include clean drinking water, herbal and green tea, compotes, freshly squeezed juices and fruit drinks, the most varied greens, vegetables, fruits, berries.
Also, the diet should contain sea fish and seafood. Optionally, you can include in the menu white meat (chicken, turkey), dairy products, led by cottage cheese and natural yogurt, liver, cereals, rye and whole grain bread, unrefined vegetable oils of the first extraction, nuts, honey and dried fruits.
Avoid baked goods made from premium flour, sweets and foods high in animal fats.
2. Low-calorie food is a priority
To effectively lose weight, the body must burn more calories than it consumes. In this case, you need to carefully monitor that the daily calorie content of food is at least 1200 kcal. Otherwise, there will be a plateau effect: your weight will simply stop at one point, and considerable problems with digestion and the hormonal system will become a “bonus”.
3. Active lifestyle
To maintain health at the proper level, a person of normal weight needs to walk at least 7 km per day. For those who strive to lose weight, the load must be increased by 3-4 km.
Also, regular hourly cardio and aerobic workouts and the obligatory daily morning exercises will be useful. Only in this way the fat will go away, and the muscle mass will grow.
4. Compliance with the daily routine
This truth is as old as the world: wake up and go to bed at the same time. It is also desirable to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same time. And in two to three weeks, the body will function like a clock. This regularity contributes to the process of losing weight, significantly speeding it up.
5. Quality rest and sleep
Regular sleep deprivation and lack of proper rest after work, as well as a lack of days off, provoke increased production of cortisol (stress hormone). As a result – metabolic failure in the body, constantly increasing and uncontrolled appetite, breakdowns, lack of strength for motivation and the absence of any results in losing weight.
