For many people who suffer from overweight, the word “diet” causes terrible discomfort. Moreover, this is a very usual reaction of the body to the not entirely correct system of weight loss. Indeed, the diet itself will never allow a person to achieve the desired result in full. On a diet, you can lose extra pounds, but the skin does not have time to tighten and look flabby, and experts will agree that the huge number of diets completely violates the metabolism and nothing but healthy substances and water comes out of the body.
In this regard, nutritionists suggest changing the lifestyle and acquiring good habits that will benefit not only your shape but also well-being in general. There are some of them:
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks – this is the main rule of a good and fast metabolism
You cannot skip a particular time of eating, because the body does not understand what is happening to it and begins to stock up on nutrients, increasing your weight.
Breakfast should contain a lot of protein and vitamins
If you are used to eating cereals in the morning, then it should be cereals from whole grain cereals, cooked in water. You can also use whole-grain bread, granola (but it is important without sweet additives – chocolate, sunflower seeds, sugar, candied fruit, coconut or honey, it is better to pour freshly squeezed juice than yogurt – so there will be fewer calories).
Take food with you
You could not believe that it helps to lose weight, but it was proved by many who managed to lose weight and to refute their conclusions you will have to try carrying food to work for a month. Thus, the option of buying products that are harmful to the figure in a store or cafe will be ruled out. So in a month, you can see the first results.
Before going shopping do not forget to eat
Go shopping well-fed, having in your hands a shopping list, not to buy extra goods. This is a very useful rule for losing weight. It is known that a hungry person buys two times more food than if he came full at the store.
Sign up for a gym later
From the very beginning doing only active cardio workouts will be enough. But do not overdo it, half an hour is enough to activate the metabolism and burn several hundred calories.
Keep a food diary
Most people who like to eat can’t evaluate themselves from the outside and name all the foods they ate during the day. Therefore, it is advisable to write everything in a special diary to see how much food was eaten in the evening and how you got extra centimeters. Over time, you will get used to writing everything down and restricting yourself to food.
Weigh yourself at least once a week
This is necessary so that you can observe the state of your weight and understand whether you need to do something in terms of weight loss. Such a habit should discipline you and make you think about the problem of excess weight, after which you will look at yourself and prevent a few more pounds from being gained.
Get enough sleep
Do you know that you can lose weight even during sleep? Lack of sleep disrupts the production of the hormone of hunger and then the signal about saturation in the brain arrives late. According to studies, it was found that a chronically sleep-deprived person consumes more calories than 40 percent as required.
Pay attention to beautiful clothes
Avoid clothes that hide your figure. This does not mean that you need to wear only figure-hugging clothes. But you should like the clothes you wear. After all, do you remember the point about love for yourself and, naturally, for your body? In baggy clothes, this is hardly possible.
Take on these habits and implement them in your daily life. Believe us, this summer you will look different, but at the same time, you will not have negative memories of how you suffered on a diet and were not satisfied with your achievements.
