Video: 8 Rules Of A Beautiful Body
The resident of the city a priori associates an attractive and fashionable appearance with the absence of extra pounds in the body. Extra "barrels" and "buns"? It's time to go on a diet! However, Eastern wisdom says: "Do not start a business if you do not know how to finish it." What I mean? By driving ourselves into frames, we find ourselves psychologically not ready either to complete the diet or to life after. Most often, soon we return to the usual, lean on tasty things and erase all the results achieved. Joshua Rosenthal (director of Institute for Integrative Nutrition NY, which I graduated from) said in one of the first classes: there is no diet that suits everyone, but there are simple nutritional rules that can be followed to speed up metabolism and help the body lose weight without stress. I'll tell you what you need to include in your diet to feel better.
1. Drink water
Hunger is often the deceptive companion of thirst. 8 glasses of water a day is optimal. Start your day with a glass of lemon water to maintain the acid-base balance, stimulate digestion and promote natural liver cleanse.
2. There are carbohydrates
Replace fast carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, bagels, cereals) with complex carbohydrates, which are found in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, which stabilizes blood sugar levels. They are also rich in antioxidants.
3. Choosing healthy fats
The big mistake would be not eating, but completely eliminating fat from the diet! In reality, we cannot live without them: fats are necessary to maintain energy, healthy hair, skin and nails, they contribute to the proper absorption of vitamins and the daily functioning of the body. Extra virgin olive oil, hemp oil, flaxseed oil, and grape seed oil are great examples of healthy fats. Try experimenting with avocado and chia seeds as well.
4. The importance of lean proteins
Our body needs proteins (proteins) for continuous cell renewal, in addition, they help stabilize blood sugar levels and provide a lot of energy. Look for milk, eggs, fish, and beans, nuts, seeds, and quinoa. Be conscious of your choices if you include animal protein in your diet. The cow that grazed in the meadow, as well as the domestic chicken, are significantly different from animals slaughtered on an industrial scale. Organic yogurt and country eggs are great protein sources for vegetarians, while beans, nuts, organic tofu, and peanut butter are great for vegans.
5. Have breakfast
Starting every day with a healthy breakfast will kickstart your metabolism and better control your sugar cravings. Skipping the first meal, during the day we often feel hungry, resort to snacks, sweets, and overeat in the evening. Scientists have found that a daily breakfast helps to maintain the correct weight, and overweight - to reduce. If you're not ready for an early breakfast, eat it when you see fit, but don't forget about it!
6. Eat more often
It is very important to balance your diet with 4-5 meals a day to help maintain normal blood sugar levels and reduce the chances of overeating. By consuming food regularly, you are giving your body a sign that it is available, which means that the body will begin to burn calories well, and not collect them in reserve.
7. Train your body and mind
It is no secret that exercise is of great benefit to the body and mind. Try to be active for at least 30 minutes a day to stay strong and lean. For starters, try leaving your car farther from the office or one stop early, using the stairs instead of the elevator, and taking walks as often as possible. Train your mind too, spend your time on positive thoughts, meditation, reading good books, playing chess, music, as well as learning languages or just something new.
8. Get enough sleep
Those who sleep 5 hours or less often weigh more than they should. The optimal time for rest is 7 or more hours per night. Poor sleep leads to jet lag, which in turn interferes with regulating energy balance, metabolism and appetite.
These eight rules will help you hear your body, improve performance, lose weight, and feel better. Don't forget: proper nutrition is your best doctor and cosmetologist!
