The Meals To Help Loosing Weight

This is really true - some products not only make you add additional pounds, but there are meals that help to burn extra fat.

Grapefruit. Some studies show that regular use of half of grapefruit or 150 gr. its juice after every meal, can reduce weight by an average of 2 kg (4.4 lb) in 2 weeks. It is believed that this is happening for one simple reason. Grapefruit reduces insulin, which in turn reduces your appetite. Naturally, the less you want to eat, the less calories you have, and the already accumulated calories are spent, which results in weight loss. If you do not like grapefruit, you can have its juice mixed with orange and lemon juice, which will further strengthen your immunity and clear the body of chemical waste.

Green tea. This plant not only prevents cancer cells, helps to prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular disease, but also has beneficial effects on metabolic processes in the body. So how many calories you can burn through the green tea. It is believed that by drinking 5 cups of green tea a day, you lose 70-80 calories. Not bad, huh?

Acute food. Do you like acute food? Then we have good news for you. Acute spices help burn fats, as well as make your body sweat, increasing your heart beat, which in turn speeds up the metabolism. There is one "but" - if you love very acute chips or acute fried food -it is unlikely to help you losing a couple of kilos.

Water. If you are not consuming enough liquid in the form of clean water, you will find it difficult to loose weight. The lack of fluids in the body slows down the process of metabolism, this could lead to a decline of glucose in blood, the weakness and dizziness.

Cinnamon. Studies showed that 1/4 of a tea spoon of cinnamon, eaten along with food, helps to absorb sugar more efficiently and reduce blood sugar. This is a significant moment, as high blood sugar leads to the formation of more and more fat deposits. Cinnamon also can be used instead of sugar, because it has natural sweet taste.

Protein foods. Proteins are the basis for the education of muscle mass, but, as we know, the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn - even if just relaxing. Moreover, for the digestion of proteins are spent more calories than for the digestion of fats and carbohydrates. Thus, protein foods also help you burn fat. The best sources of protein are:chicken breast, fish, egg proteins, turkey.

Preparing For A Diet

The most common mistake people who want to lose weight do, it is to begin a diet "straight tomorrow morning."

For some reason it is believed that a diet does not require a preliminary preparation, perhaps, except purchases of the products. And this is a big mistake. For the diet we must carefully prepare as for any cause in which you want to succeed.

So, how do we prepare for a diet?

- First, it is necessary to know your own health. For women, very important factors are the menstruation and pregnancy, in either of the cases shouldn't begin a diet. It is not recommended to start a diet at a time when your health may be affected by climatic conditions of residence, for example, in khamsin.

- Secondly, you need to consider how the diet will affect your everyday duties. Would sitting on a diet, for instance, influence the quality of your work, or affect your active participation in family and domestic activities?

- Third, be sure to ask yourself before starting a diet - will I manage? You need to imagine well the expected difficulties - for example, the constant feeling of hunger, the impossibility even to touch the favorite dishes for a long time, maybe the mockery or pity of the relatives ... - and answer honestly: am I capable of such sacrifices? Is it necessary to me? Slyness in this case may lead to the failure of the entire plan.

- Fourth, the diet in no circumstances has to be started suddenly. The principle "to stuff oneself today, and tomorrow will start starving" never justified itself! You must "engage" in the diet little by little. About a week before beginning the diet, exclude from your ration the sweet and fatty products; discontinue late dining, reduce the number of consumes food, etc., etc., depending on what is needed in a particular case.
