New year has already passed and if one of your purposes was to weight loss for the holidays, we have news for you The first holidays are coming! Although it seems distant, Holy Week will reach us soon and lowering the belly is not a matter of two days. If you want to stop doing laziness Put a date! and begin to follow these tips so that in less than a month you become a mangazo.
Have a calendar about your water consumption
It is preferable that we take at least 2 liters of water a day, but taking two liters from one day to the next could ruin your bladder. To activate the functioning of your organs, start by drinking a glass of water half an hour before each meal for a week, then add a glass when you wake up, before sleeping and bathing (weekly). Preferably cold.
Includes desserts only at breakfast
Eating sweets at breakfast, like a chocolate or a pastry, helps prevent cravings throughout the day and thus moderate your sugar intake. Also consume it early is good because at the end of your day, your body will have already digested it.
Make healthy snacks for your entire week
If you look on Pinterest “Healthy Snacks” you can see how delicious, nutritious and simple they can be. We recommend doing this activity your weekend and have them ready for your work week. In case you do not have time buy in the super yogurt, natural popcorn or fruit.
Stop making careless and pay your registration to the gym!
How many of us do not start the year with this purpose? As we said before, you will not lose weight overnight. You have more than one month left, pay your registration two months in advance, so you will have the motivation of having already paid and even if it is a commitment, you will go!
Prefers fruits and vegetables with fiber
All fruits and vegetables are good because they carry vitamins and minerals that our body needs to function well, but did you know that some help you improve your digestion, retain less liquids or purify the body? Some examples are papaya, pear, carrot, pineapple, celery, apple, lemon, tomato, among others.
Assign a schedule and activity to sleep
When we restrict sleep we increase the hormone that stimulates hunger. We recommend sleeping at least 6-8 hours per night. If it is very difficult for you to go to bed early, do some relaxing activity such as reading a book, meditating with candles, writing a diary or doing yoga.
Eat 5-6 times a day and record it in a diary
I know it sounds weird to tell you that three meals a day is not good for losing weight. Eating 5 to 6 small servings (or healthy snacks) a day will increase your metabolism. Also if you write a food diary you will be more rigorous and according to some studies you will start eating less than necessary.
Start a relaxing hobby
There are different ways to manage your stress, one of them is to start a hobby that relaxes you. The memes say that girls are angry because of hunger. But it’s a lie! It is true that eating controls stress by releasing dopamine, but another activity such as writing, running or collecting will help you with that problem.
Find a friend who wants to lose weight
We know that controlling yourself by eating, sleeping, exercising or even drinking is a difficult task. But it has been proven that having a partner increases motivation. So they can go together to the gym, to the supermarket, compare results or even carry a healthy “competition”.
