In the end, between what some say and what others say, we end up confused and we tend to fall into basic mistakes that prevent us from losing weight. Don't be one of them and as you do, do it right
Lose weight fast is possible, and the more kilos we lose, the more weight we will lose by making small adjustments to our diet. Many times it is not a matter of eating less or going hungry, but of eating what is indicated at the right time of day.
Most of us follow a diet that is not healthy, more for lack of information than for neglect. And we believe, erroneously, that to lose weight we will have to make great sacrifices, when in fact we can eat very rich and nutritious and still lose all the kilos that we have left.
In this attempt to lose weight, however, most of us make the same mistakes. And these are the six most common:
1) eat too much protein
Protein is important, but if you eat too much, you will store the excess in the form of fat and you will not lose weight. It is true that the more proteins you consume, the more you will accelerate your metabolism or, what is the same, the more weight you will lose at rest, but if you go overboard you will not achieve it.
2) Not cooking vegetables well
For the slimming effect of the vegetables to have an effect on you, you must be careful when preparing them. No salt (please) and be very careful with olive oil, since, although it is a good source of fat, a single tablespoon of this green gold has no less than 120 calories and 14 grams of fat. And if you flood your vegetables with this liquid, or add about three to the chicken fillet, you are already adding a minimum of 400 calories.
As for the vegetables you can eat, there are no restrictions, but we give you some ideas: broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, cabbage, lettuce, cucumber ...
3) Drinking too much orange juice or soda 'ñight'
Most fruit juices raise blood sugar, which causes the body to produce more insulin and as a result, you will be hungrier and overeat later.
It is also a mistake to drink soft drinks, both in their normal versions as 'light' or 'zero'. It is best to hydrate with water, teas or coffee.
4) not eating enough 'good fat'
There is no fear of ' good fat ', the other way around. By choosing the right types of fats, you can lose weight faster. These are the polyunsaturated, like omega 3, or the monounsaturated.
We find the 'good fats' in foods such as olive oil, avocado, nuts or salmon.
5) become obsessed with the scale
Most people lose many kilos in the first weeks of their weight loss plan because they had a lot of excess weight and because they have lost a lot of water, and then the number on the scale stagnates and decreases little by little, which makes people abandon to many people.
Obsessing over the weight on the scale is a mistake, because suddenly one day you can mark two kilos less and have been stagnant for three weeks.
6) Keep eating bread and rice
You should banish carbohydrates for a few weeks. These foods are healthy, but they prevent you from losing weight. In addition, they make you retain fluids and make you bloated. Breads, whole cereals, pasta, rice, cookies and buns, candies, gummies ... and, of course, everything with added sugar should be avoided at all costs.
Your system is busy. When you eat something, your food takes a twisty trip that starts with being chewed up and ends with you going to the bathroom. A lot happens in between. The health of your gut plays a key role in your overall health and well-being. You can make choices to help your body stay on tract.
