If you want to lose weight, having a good diet is one of the most fundamental things you can do, but if you want something fast and you are a very overweight person, do not be afraid to resort to a weight loss surgery in Tijuana Mexico with A Slimmer Me.
We reveal 10 daily habits so that, with small changes, you can get rid of a few extra kilos.
Vegetables: the 2 golden rules
Increase your consumption: Much research has shown that, even taking the same calories, those who consume more vegetables reduce their weight better. If you meet this rule … everything else will be much simpler!
And some raw in every meal: When you cook a food you put it too easy to your body, which needs little effort to digest it. In contrast, eating raw vegetables usually contributes less “net” calories because it requires the body to “spend more” to metabolize them
Those who get fatter
It is not about abandoning them, but about reducing them. With that, you will already notice changes. Watch with:
The cereals: those of breakfast take hidden sugar. The sausage: much of its content is fat.
The pizza: a portion can reach 400 kcal. Fritters: do not take them more than once a week.
Milk: a glass of whole milk is about 150 kcal. Desserts: their white flour and sugar trigger calories. The dressings: a spoonful of mayonnaise adds 90 kcal.
The semi-fast lowered belly
More and more research shows that one of the most beneficial habits when it comes to losing weight is to dine early and delay breakfast a little.
If there is no contraindication in the latter, lengthening the hours you spend without eating – most raisins sleeping – greatly favors the loss of weight, also in the abdominal area.
How to do it well? Dinner in the European style (early and lightly) and try to spend at least 12 hours until breakfast.
Water helps you lose weight
Water satiates, calms the appetite and helps eliminate liquids and toxins.
Drink about eight glasses of water throughout the day.
If it is hard for you to drink, flavor the water by mixing it with natural fruit juice. Also the herbal infusions are a good option.
Hydrates or proteins?
Both provide 4 calories per gram, but in the body do not behave the same:
The simple carbohydrates (sugar, sweets, honey …) hardly need digestion and pass almost immediately to the blood, without assuming a previous energy expenditure to the body (you get those 4 kcal).
With complex carbohydrates (rice, pasta, potatoes, bread, etc.), the body must expend energy – about 20% – to assimilate them.
In the case of proteins, cooking makes them more digestible. Even so, the body spends, in processing, 30% of the energy they contribute. Therefore, one gram of protein will provide about 2.8 “net” calories, not those initial 4 calories.
Pasta? … let it cool
if the pasta is allowed to cool once it has been cooked, its structure is transformed into what is known as “resistant starch”, a digestible type so that, when eaten, it is absorbed very slowly, without producing an increase in blood glucose .
That means you’ll be full for more hours.
What we have explained about the pasta, is extended to other foods rich in starch (complex carbohydrate) such as rice. When they are cooked in the refrigerator, their starch is transformed.
Therefore, to reduce the calories of that dish (and thus get less fat) it is advisable to refresh the rice (or pasta) once cooked. Do it first with cold water and then leaving it for a few minutes in the refrigerator.
