No one likes the word “diet”. But in the warmer months she is only gaining momentum. It also comes with the unpleasant associations of hunger and tired exercises. The truth is that without restrictions on nutrition and sports, you can not achieve significant and lasting results.
What is the biggest problem people face on a diet? Strong attacks of hunger, for which one is easily transmitted and reaches the “forbidden” food. In practice, if your stomach is full, you are often less inclined to go to something “forbidden,” experts say.
During a diet, it is advisable to drink plenty of water because it helps the metabolism and degradation of food. In addition, in a hunger attack and before each meal, it is nice to drink a glass of water that instantly fills the stomach. So you will eat less and more sensible.
Not only does the sport burn calories, but also increase metabolism, tighten muscles, tonify the whole body. Exercises also help tame hunger. Do you feel that you eat a lot, and not the time to do it, do a quick and light exercise series. Physical activity will temporarily distract you and prolong time without food.
3. Eat more protein
Proteins nourish the muscles and break down the most slowly from all other food groups, which means they will keep you at their best for a long time.
4. Eat at least 5 times a day
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are required! You can add two snacks with something light and useful (fruit, milk, 20 grams of raw nuts). Do not leave long breaks in which the stomach has no food.
5. Chewing gum
Here the opinion is contradictory. On the one hand, health experts warn that they should not chew gum in the fasting as they stimulate gastric juices and this can cause heartburn if there is nothing to digest.
On the other hand, if you’re just trying to keep control and not to throw some food nearby because it’s not in your diet or it’s not time to eat – you can bet on chewing gums that will help you temporarily dissipate brain and he stops sending signals to the body that he is fasting.
