Wanting to lose weight requires a very significant investment but also to be able to make concessions.
Before starting a diet, it is important to observe your body, your dietary imbalances and adopt the most appropriate measures. To do so, keeping a logbook is very valuable. It is above all about what we consume during the day, at what time, and with what level of hunger from 1 to 4.
1. Review your diet
You have to rethink your meal schedule: you will lose weight more easily with a diet well distributed throughout the day. You must adapt your meal times to your schedule, do not remove breakfast because it is too important, and especially avoid skipping a meal.
Vary your diet, and be sure to eat everything, but in adequate amounts to reduce calories, while keeping nutrient intake safe.
For a typical day, you should plan:
– lean meat or fish
– 3 low-fat dairy products such as yogurt or cottage cheese
– 2 to 3 fresh fruits per day
– 10 g of butter (a knob)
– 30 g of bread.
You must avoid fatty substances as much as possible, which is why we recommend cooking in non-stick coated frying pans, in the microwave and in a pressure cooker. Do not hesitate to add herbs, spices or aromatics to your dishes which will have a benefit on your body.
Finally, you must learn to taste and especially to chew because eating with a slingshot inflates the food stock in your stomach and does not facilitate its digestion.
In conclusion, you have to think about adopting a varied diet that includes 50% carbohydrates, 25% protein and 25% fat. Too often, the diet is not balanced and despite efforts, it contains too much fat. To reverse this trend, it is imperative to limit the latter by increasing the share of slow carbohydrates and proteins.
2. Engage in physical activity
To facilitate weight loss, physical activity is essential. You have to choose a method adapted to yourself, one that will burn calories and permanently reduce body fat while providing pleasure and self-confidence.
Running is the best sport to lose weight. It is possible to start to alternate walking and slow running. However, you have to run often for this to be effective. Jogging at a speed of 8 km / h expends 80 kcal per kilometer, or 640 kcal in one hour.
walking is not enough for a significant calorie expenditure. In addition, the absence of vibrations during movement does not promote muscle toning which contributes to the increase in metabolism and therefore to a significant total caloric expenditure.
For an individual weighing 70 kilos, at a speed of 16 km / h this represents about 250 calories burned for half an hour.
So take it easy at first, so as not to be disgusted, the main thing being not to stop when you have started. If you are fat, avoid playing a sport that carries your weight. Swimming and cycling are therefore highly recommended sports.
But, don’t forget that any physical activity is useful: if possible, do your shopping on foot or park your vehicle far from traders; Avoid using the elevators, get off a metro or bus station before your destination and walk home …
3. Drink water
Water does not provide any calories. It represents a precious help to drain metabolic waste which facilitates weight loss.
Water replaces snacking with repeated small sips, which is a much better habit.
It is necessary to drink 1.5 L per day to accentuate the weight loss. It is found that if the diet is associated with a high consumption of water, there is a significant loss of weight and a loss of stimulating centimeters.
Spontaneously or out of habit, some people limit water consumption, or even eliminate it, thinking they can lose weight. By reactive compensation the organism, which fears this lack, will learn to save water, storing it more and more. There is then water retention. Logically, a large water intake will combat the phenomenon, freeing the body from this stress.
It appears that tap water is the most suitable because it is the most balanced but above all the least expensive. We must avoid carbonated water which will not act in the right way.
