Believing that you have to starve yourself to lose weight is not just wrong, it’s destructive to human health!
Depriving ourselves of food and sharply reducing the amount of food we eat is counterproductive. We do not lose weight at all because the body wants to save energy and it slows down ALL its metabolic processes.
And fat is an important strategic reserve for a person! That's why at first when we lose weight, it’s mainly due to waste, the elimination of fluids, and the contraction of muscles.
So how can we make this process more effective without the starvation factor?
Let's sort out what you need to eat to lose weight properly.
- Foods containing fiber: Vegetables, fruits, legumes, Guarchibao shakes.
All these foods give you a feeling of fullness that lasts, and improve your digestion. All in exchange for a reasonable amount of calories.
- Low-fat seafood, white meat, and low-fat dairy products.
One gram of fat contains about nine calories. Saturated fats are especially dangerous in food, consuming these can lead to blocked blood vessels or arteries and contribute to heart disease. Healthy fats, on the other hand, are good for your body.
- You will find a lot of protein in liver, poultry, eggs, and squid.
Protein from foods such as eggs, liver, and seafood (along with well-balanced and nutritionally sound protein shakes) strengthen the muscles, speeds up the body’s recovery processes, and normalizes the metabolism.
- Celery, green tea, and Guarchibao Drainage Liquor can help flush out water.
Excess weight is also often the result of excess fluid that accumulates in the body’s tissues. Certain foods and drinks, such as those listed above, help combat water weight. Reducing your salt intake is also a good idea.
- Eat healthy snacks: fruits, dried fruit, nuts, Pro Snack bars.
Bringing a healthy snack or a Pro Snack bar to work to keep you going in between means is a great idea. Try an apple or a banana. If you have a sweet tooth and can’t stay completely away from the sugary stuff, try a few marshmallows or bitter dark chocolate as a better choice.
Also, if you've been on a weight loss plan for a long time and suddenly your weight increases, pay attention to the amount of carbs you’re consuming per day. It’s better to reduce certain carbs (white bread, potatoes) and give preference to complex carbohydrates such as buckwheat, which is ideal for breakfast.
These recommendations will help not just to lose weight, but also reduce the percentage of excess fat — without stress or drastic measures!
