The diet that gives the best results, is to not do one! This is the secret to keeping a controlled weight and for a long time. Practice some sport at least 3 times a week, eat everything but in reasonable quantities, drink lots of water and get plenty of sleep, these are the secrets to staying slim. If you want to loose weight and quickly, it’s different. Here are a few tips to help you loose weight a little quicker and keep the weight off!
1/ Drink lots of water
Wether you drink a cup of tea, cold or with a slice of lemon, water is your best friend for eliminating horrid toxins from your body. It is recommended to drink 2 litres of water a day, and more when doing sport as you sweat. Drink up!
2/ Don’t deprive yourself of snacks!
According to numerous studies those who authorise themselves to snack during the day are thinner. WAIT Hold off from eating that bar of chocolate! Snacks should be considered part of a balanced diet and in reasonable quatities such as cereal bars, yoghurt, fruit juice or a handful of almonds, eaten at a time of the day when you are tired and need an energy boost. An afternoon snack will also result in being less hungry at dinner. If you don’t feel hungry don’t force yourself, listen to your body.
3/Forget the car, bus or lift.
True they save your time but don’t save you money! If you really want to make some changes to your silhouette, think exercise. You need to buy a pint of milk? Then use your bicycle to get to the local shop! Take the stairs instead of the lift and walk as much as you can. These little daily gestures will make a difference in the long term. Try to add little sport exercises during the day when and where you can: tense your abs whilst sat, stand on your tiptoes whilst washing up…, every little helps!
4/ Write a food diary.
Purchase yourself a pretty notebook (it will be more motivating) and note down everything you have drink and eat. At the end of the week look over what you have consummed. You will be able to see in black and white what you should stop eating and try to avoid. Start to see your meals as a way of managing your diet.
5/ Start eating “slow food”.
Stop eating fast foods or ready cooked meals. We understand that they are good when you don’t have a lot of time, but eaten regularly they don’t help our waist lines. Instead of buying a ready made pasta bake, why not purchse the pasta, meat, sauce and cheese yourself? It not only will be cheaper but you will be able to control the quantaties of what you put in it. No more unwanted additives
