Choosing the right diet
Soon the season of short skirts, deep decollete and tight dresses. In anticipation, you are critical about yourself and your wardrobe. In this dress hangs the belly, the skirt is narrow, the trousers are hardly fastened, and the blouse does not converge in the cutout. And in general, somehow I have all increased! It's time to take care of yourself and get into your favorite things!
There are countless ways to lose weight, but we will dwell on diets, of which there are a great many. Every time, choosing a diet, we do not know what to stop at – this "hungry", this is too exotic, and this terribly expensive. And each of them promises just a magical result! How to choose what is right for you?
So, if you are determined to achieve results, we will help you. First you need to decide how long you intend to "diet". To date, there are fast diets, with their help you can get rid of a couple of kilograms in just a few days, long, designed for several weeks or months, and those that need to adhere to throughout life.
Immediately it should be noted that you should not trust enthusiastic reviews about this or that method of losing weight, because using a diet is a very individual matter, and the fact that someone helped to lose weight does not necessarily help you. To ensure that the diet is really effective, you need to take into account the individual characteristics of your body, allergies, contraindications and try to take into account all the negative consequences.
Everyone wants to lose weight quickly and easily, but we must not forget that we do not live in a fairy tale, and by the magic of a magic wand you will not be able to change your figure. First you need to mentally prepare yourself for this feat, change your way of life, set a clear goal and only then proceed to the proper nutrition that would contain all vitamins and minerals your body needs.
From an endless list of diets you can choose any, but you need to know exactly how many kilograms you want to lose weight, and what products you are willing to give up. When the main is determined, the range of searches immediately becomes much narrower. Now it is important to know the sources of the remaining diets, their scientific basis and impact on the body. If these parameters are not indicated in the diet, you should immediately delete it from the list, and do not put on experiments!
At the next stage, analyze how your body is theoretically ready to withstand even one of the remaining diets. Especially it concerns those people who have any health problems, for example diabetes, hypertension or coronary heart disease. In this case, it is worth considering what kind of food recommended by doctors and how much it contradicts the set of products that you are going to use.
In addition, it is important to take into account the combination of products, which offers you a diet. If this monotonous repetition of the same breakfasts, lunches and dinners, think – are you able to sustain such a regime for several weeks? And is it worth to deny yourself the pleasure of consumption in the usual amount of minerals and vitamins, replacing them with dubious chemical complexes? Pay attention to diets offering a variety of dishes, giving vent to your imagination and imagination. Thus, the risk of falling off and eating something that you are trying to refuse is reduced.
In general, in order to exclude the risk of a possible breakdown, you should choose a diet based on the products you are accustomed to. After all, if new, unaccustomed ingredients appear in the diet, then the body, genetically accustomed to other foods, will demand their return and refuse to receive exotic dishes. A consequence of such a refusal may be an allergy.
Another important fact is the stability of the achieved weight. Experts argue that short-term diets are unlikely to last for a long time to maintain the weight achieved, and when you go to a normal lifestyle, the weight loss is rapidly returning. Therefore, take into account the fact that the selected diet will have to sit at least a few months, unless, of course, you do not want to return the lost pounds.
How do you know if the diet that you choose is right for you? The feeling of hunger should appear from time to time, it must be controlled and be satisfied with the intake of a small amount of food. If you are constantly haunted by thoughts about food, and you are constantly experiencing a feeling of hunger, then this is not your diet.
If the diet suits you, then naturally, it reaches the main goal – the weight decreases. Especially it should be noticeable in the first weeks of your struggle with kilograms. Then the weight will decrease more slowly or simply keep on the reached level. However, one should not expect a rapid significant loss of weight in the first weeks, because, in order not to return what was dumped with such great difficulty, experts advise to lose weight by only 3-4 kilograms per month. More intensive weight loss damages the liver, kidneys, the immune system and increases the risk of re-gaining weight after the end of the diet.
If the diet is chosen correctly, then you will work, the mood will improve, you will feel easy and free, will become more energetic. If you become irritable, feel weak or unwell, then you should abandon the chosen diet – it does not suit you.
We picked up several variants of diets, allowing you to combine from a certain set of products, breakfasts, lunches and dinners at your discretion.
Michel Montignac's Diet
If you decide to follow this food system, then prepare to eat it if not all your life, then quite a considerable time. French dietician Michelle Montignac believes that the increase in body weight occurs when the main function of the pancreas – insulin production – is disrupted, which is why his method of nutrition is aimed at restoring the functions of the pancreas. Montignac has radically divided all products into bad and good ones. To the bad he refers products with a high glycemic index, i.e. with a high rate of increase in glucose in the blood after eating the product. And to find out what the glycemic index of a particular product is, you can use special tables, which you can not find on the Internet. In this case, if the product index is higher than 50, then Montignac considers it to be bad.
You also need to be ready for separate meals. At the first stage of the diet, which lasts as long as you think fit, special attention should be paid to low-fat meat and fish, low-fat sour-milk products, cheese, eggs, vegetables, beans, beans, soy, lemon and mushrooms. At the second stage, you can relax a little and include in the diet of coarse grains, as well as, in a small number of products, the glycemic index of which exceeds 50. From their diet will have to exclude products that contain both carbohydrates and proteins. Also you will have to give up sugar, sweets, jam, rice, white flour, spirits, honey, chocolate, bananas, pasta, potatoes and corn.
A pleasant aspect of this diet will be the removal of restrictions on the amount of food taken. Yes, very many products are prohibited, but those that are allowed, you can eat in unlimited quantities, which means that you will not be hungry! However, do not forget that you need to eat at least three times a day, at about the same time. Pay special attention to breakfast, which should be quite dense, and dinner, which, on the contrary, should be made as easy as possible.
Apparently, this diet has many advantages: the normalization of metabolism, the ease of compliance with the menu, the lack of restrictions on salt, separate meals. But in addition to positive influence, there are also significant shortcomings: an inadequate balance, which should be supplemented by an additional intake of vitamin-mineral complexes, a ban on people with diabetes mellitus to follow this method of nutrition and a ban on alcohol.
Despite the identified shortcomings, with all the recommendations, the Montignac diet leads to long-term results.
Diet Kim Protasov
The main emphasis in this diet is on sour-milk products, which are cheeses, kefir, cottage cheese and yogurt. According to the author, due to these products, there is a normalization of metabolism and cleaning of the intestine.
The diet lasts five weeks, but is divided into several periods. So, the first period is two weeks, during which it is suggested to use sour-milk products with fat content up to 5%, fresh vegetables, three apples and one egg a day. Sour-milk products and vegetables are allowed to eat in any quantity and at any time of the day. Also in unlimited quantities you can drink non-carbonated mineral water, tea and coffee without sugar.
The second period is 3 weeks, during which lean meat and fish are introduced into the diet (no more than 300 grams per day), resulting in a decrease in consumption of sour-milk products and saturation of the body with protein. In the last two weeks, the most intensive weight loss occurs.
The third period is a direct exit from the diet, after which you should try not to immediately attack the fried potatoes, rolls or cakes. Kim Protasov recommends moving to a normal diet gradually. First, replacing 5% dairy products with less fatty ones, and apples for any other fruits. Then part of the vegetables replaced with porridge and add to your diet butter. Thus, a small increase in caloric intake is the basis for getting out of the diet.
The advantages of the diet include: an unlimited amount of food, normalization of the metabolism and functions of the pancreas, a sufficient amount of protein, calcium and lactose, vitamins, minerals, microelements and fiber. But, like any other diet, Kim Protasov's system has drawbacks: it is contraindicated for people suffering from hypertension, diseases of the cardiovascular system, kidney failure and allergy to sour-milk products.
With the help of such diets you not only lose weight, but also learn how to eat properly, hear what the body tells you and, finally, get rid of harmful taste habits. It is these diets that help us learn to choose healthier foods and introduce healthy eating habits into our lives, and this is our chance to keep our weight at a stable level for many years. Good luck in the battle with extra pounds!
