Many diets imply various restrictions, counting calories. All of this takes some effort. As a result, many give up because the process is quite difficult. Banal laziness interferes with losing weight. But there is another way out - a special diet for the lazy. How to properly observe it and what is its essence?
The nuances of nutrition
The basis of nutrition is pure water. It must be drunk before meals. Drink a few glasses of water 20 minutes before you eat. But you cannot drink anything during meals and for two hours afterwards.
Why does drinking water help? Water promotes metabolic processes in the body, removes harmful substances from the intestines, and also helps to get full faster. After two glasses of water, you don't want to eat as much anymore, so less food is eaten. And after drinking so much pure water, you won't want to drink a cup of sweet tea anymore. This will of course help you lose weight.
The duration of the diet should be two to three weeks. You can only use this diet once a year. But drinking clean water before meals is still healthy.
You shouldn't drink boiled water as it loses a lot of useful salts and minerals. In this case, the liquid should be slightly warm or cold. When the water is very cold, it slows down the digestive process, so it is not recommended to drink it. You must drink in small sips and with a break you cannot drink in one gulp. This interesting diet does not prohibit snacking between meals. However, since you also have to drink two glasses of water before the snacks, you will hardly want to snack. But when you are hungry, choose healthy foods: fruits, yogurt.
You should not immediately drink two glasses of water before meals. It is better to start with a glass and gradually increase the amount of liquid. In addition, before dieting, you need to drink a spoonful of flaxseed oil, and then a glass of clean water, in the morning on an empty stomach for three days. You can have breakfast in ten minutes. This will help cleanse the body and easily enter the diet.
Since you drink three liters of water a day while dieting, calcium, sodium, and potassium can be flushed out. Therefore, it is necessary to drink a complex of vitamins and minerals throughout the diet.
How can you make the lazy diet even more effective? Of course, you need to reduce the amount of fatty, spicy and sweet foods on the menu. In addition, you need to sleep at least eight hours a day. Physical activity won't hurt, but it isn't necessary to be very vigorous.
Detailed diet menu
What can you eat while on a diet? It can be any food. You can eat cereals, eggs, dairy and dairy products, meat, fish, bread, vegetables and fruits, herbs, berries. In principle, you can even eat cakes or pastries, fried potatoes or a hot dog. However, if you want to speed up weight loss, it is better to keep the number of unhealthy foods on the menu to a minimum. That is, it is better to exclude hot dogs, choose more useful sweets (dark chocolate, marshmallow, dried fruits) and eat them in the morning, replace sugar with honey, choose lean meat (veal, chicken, beef), buy dairy productswith low or medium fat content. The diet menu can be compiled independently based on the recommendations.
Here is an example of a diet menu, but you can come up with your own:
- in the morning: an omelette with vegetables or cottage cheese with fruits or a porridge, an apple or an orange;
- Snack: yogurt or fruit salad;
- Lunch: first course, fish or meat, rice or vegetable garnish, salad;
- Afternoon snack: cottage cheese or salad;
- Dinner: cottage cheese or vegetable casserole, fish.
Tea, coffee, compotes, fruit drinks and other beverages can only be consumed a few hours after a meal. If you feel hungry before bed, you should also drink water.
If you don't want to drink clean water all the time, add lemon juice (not too much). However, this should not be done every time, but at regular intervals. This improves the taste and refreshes it.
