Overweight. This is a psychological, aesthetic and social problem.
Common situation? Yes, we have worked up fat during the long winter. We urgently need to change something. But not a wardrobe, right?
Let’s figure out how you can most effectively get rid of extra pounds and feel that everything is fine with us — both thoughts, and clothes, and how it sits!
According to medical statistics, 60% of Russians are overweight!
Sometimes obesity is associated with hormonal problems, chronic diseases, hereditary predisposition.
But in most cases, doctors blame improper eating behavior.
Simply put, the banal habit of eating a lot and high in calories is ruining our waist. But being overweight is not only an aesthetic and psychological problem, but also a social one.
It is more difficult for a person with obesity to find a job, it is more difficult to build interpersonal relationships and withstand competition, because today the ideal of a successful person is slim, athletic, fit and easy-going.
So you need to lose weight. The question is: how to do it right?
Sitting on rigid diets is not an option.
First, a restriction in protein, fat and carbohydrates can cause health problems.
Secondly, any diet works while you are sitting on it, then you can easily gain even more weight than you used to be. And most importantly — I really want to eat. Feeling hungry no diet
does not beat off.
What is the main thing in the fight against obesity in the initial stages?
Of course, a decrease in calorie intake and an increase in the level of physical activity. We bring the calorie content of food to 2000 calories, i.e. we reduce it from the usual one by an average of one third (by 500-1000 calories).
And we increase the activity of movements by at least 30%. Here are the most effective means: swimming, cycling, in winter — skiing, in summer — rowing, all year round — running and gymnastics with equipment (kettlebells, dumbbells and especially a jump rope), training on simulators.
How to tame the «ravenous appetite»?
By the way, the inability to refrain from eating is one of the main reasons for obesity. And soybeans, beans, lightly toasted seeds, nuts help to quickly tame an unrestrained appetite, which can sharply reduce the consumption of the main sources of carbohydrates — bread and cereals, toasted bread and baked potatoes will help to satisfy hunger.
Try milk tea. And to eat slowly, slowly chewing food, it is better more often (4-5 times a day).
Vegetables, fruits and wild herbs are great allies in the fight against obesity. Zucchini, pumpkin and watermelon are especially beneficial due to their high fiber content and their ability to reduce the absorption of cholesterol. Gooseberries are refreshing, choleretic and diuretic.
Carrots, lettuce, as well as beets, cabbage and cranberries are very useful.
Listen also to the opinion of the American physiologist Norbert Walker. He recommends to drink juices from carrots, spinach, beets, cucumbers.
Seaweed suppresses appetite, of which the most available is seaweed, the use of which is also useful for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis.
If you eat 1 tbsp. a spoonful of dried cabbage, the feeling of fullness lasts for several hours.
