I always hear the same story from my friend Suzanne. “I lost a little weight, and then I stopped. I was exercising and eating healthy… but I got stuck. Ultimately, I got discouraged, gained weight again, and lost all hope in diets.”
Samantha, another friend, was passionate about gastronomy. She immensely enjoyed exploring new flavors and indulging in her favorite dishes. But when she noticed that her clothes were tight and her energy levels were low, she decided to change.
She began following a strict diet and increased her exercise routine. From the beginning, Samantha was motivated and enthusiastic about her new lifestyle. The results came quickly, and she felt proud for having followed her plan. But as time passed, she realized how much she missed her old way of eating.
She craved pizza, ice cream, and all the other foods she had eliminated from her diet. And she was constantly tired and irritable. She needed help to get used to her diet and exercise routine while she kept up a busy work schedule. One day, after a frustrating workout, Samantha burst into tears. She realized that following a diet was more frustrating than ever imagined.
Rethink her diet. Avoid quick-fix fad diets because your weight tends to increase. Consuming protein is essential to build muscle and stimulate fat burning. Proteins are vital for the repair and construction of muscle tissue. Moreover, to maintain a healthy metabolism. When choosing protein sources, look for high-quality, lean options. Eat lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs, and low-fat dairy. Be careful with soy and skim milk because these foods contribute to weight gain. Other foods that increase our weight: French fries, sugary soft drinks, sausages, fruit juices with added sugar, sausages, fast food, bacon, white chocolate, nuts, hazelnuts, ice cream, honey, white bread, pasta, yogurt with fruit and drinks alcoholic.
Eliminate processed foods. Avoid bad carbs: white sugar and white flour. Stay away from processed foods. Rancid fats, oils, carbohydrates, preservatives, and coloring help you become overweight.
Good oils. Coconut oil is the best oil for a diet. It is a harmless-saturated fat that helps fight cardiovascular diseases. Some studies indicate that it is better than olive oil for weight loss.
Moderate exercises. People talk a lot about adding more exercise, but too much is almost as bad as too little. Start slowly and increase your activity gradually. Vary exercise routines include alternating weight training and aerobic exercises on different days.
