How to lose 5-7 kilograms in a week without dieting
After the holidays, most people, and especially women, look with horror at their reflection in the mirror: generous feasts never pass without leaving a trace for the figure.
An abundance of fatty and spicy foods, salads with mayonnaise, sweets and other culinary delights are always fraught with extra pounds. But do not despair: nutritionists assure that you can return to its previous shape in just a week! Indeed, in fact, no more than 150 g of "pure" fat can be deposited in a human body (of average build) per day. Thus, in 10 days of gastronomic "spree" you can gain about 1. 5 kg of subcutaneous fat.
Why did the arrow of the balance move so many divisions, you may ask with surprise. This is because, in addition to fat, excess fluid and poorly digested food are retained in the body. As a result, the "overweight" can amount to as much as 5-7 kg. How to get rid of them quickly and painlessly? Read below.
It is ordinary water that stimulates the kidneys and accelerates the elimination of toxins. The required amount of liquid just for you can be calculated based on the scheme: 30 ml per 1 kg of the ideal human weight. Be sure to drink one glass of still, clear water on an empty stomach right after sleep. Ideally, if the interval between this intake of water and breakfast is at least half an hour. The water should be warm (above room temperature), you can add two or three drops of lemon juice to it: this will wake up the gastrointestinal tract and improve digestion.
For drinks throughout the day, give preference to herbs and weak teas. So, an infusion of parsley or chamomile will help get rid of puffiness, and natural leafy green tea without sugar will have a tonic effect on the digestive system.
2 days - no more than 1200 calories
Returning to your previous weight will take about the same time as you put on those extra pounds. Thus, if the feast of the belly lasted a week, then it will be possible to get rid of the overeating with back-breaking work also in a week. True, only if high-calorie dishes are excluded from the diet, a person will begin to move more, and ideally, go in for sports.
The most important thing is that you should not immediately go on a rigid diet: it will turn into stress for the body, and not only will it not help you lose weight, but even, on the contrary, will make it accumulate fats. As a result, fatty deposits will appear on the sides, and the muscles will begin to weaken and sag. To prevent this from happening and the gained kilograms are still gone, you just need to adjust your diet. Establish three small meals a day and eliminate snacks entirely.
For two days, you can eat in such a way that the total calorie content of the menu does not exceed 1000-1200 calories. In no case do not gorge yourself at night: the last meal should be 2-3 hours before bedtime. If you feel hungry in bed, drink a glass of low-fat kefir or yogurt.
Taboo on sugar and a minimum of salt
The next step on the path to getting rid of kilograms is to compose a diet. Above all, eliminate foods and drinks that contain sugar. These are carbonated drinks, packaged juices and any sweets. Avoid fried, fatty and spicy foods, and also from white flour (pastry and bakery products). It is worth reducing salt intake to a minimum - this will help remove excess fluid from the body. Try not to eat fruits that provoke fermentation in the intestines - sweet dried fruits and unripe bananas. Limit vegetables that cause gas and bloating (cauliflower, legumes).
Instead, include in the diet low-fat protein foods: white fish and dietary meats (turkey, chicken) are ideal. Boiled vegetables are suitable as a side dish. Also include in the menu low-fat dairy products, stews and soups, fresh vegetables and sweet and sour fruits.
During the period of getting rid of excess calories, it is very useful to lean on sauerkraut. First, because of the fiber content, it "collects" all harmful substances like a vacuum cleaner. Secondly, it is rich in lactic acid, which is necessary to restore intestinal immunity, and vitamin C, which will help withstand winter colds.
Fasting days will help get rid of excess fluid that has accumulated in the tissues due to salty and spicy foods. Also, unloading will remove the remnants of undigested food from the lower intestines: an unbalanced diet with an excess of proteins, a lack of fermented milk and fresh plant products in combination with a sedentary lifestyle during the New Year holidays contributed to "stagnation". For fasting days to bring health benefits, they need to be carried out regularly 1-2 times a week. People with chronic diseases, especially gastritis or peptic ulcer disease, and also with a tendency to allergies should be approached with caution when unloading. In this case, it is better to consult a doctor and draw up an individual menu for unloading.
Everyone else can be unloaded, for example, on brown rice. Before going to bed, soak about 300 g of rice, rinse the cereals in the morning, cover with water and cook until tender. Most importantly, do not add salt, oil, or any other seasoning. Divide the finished porridge into 6 parts and consume it at regular intervals. Be sure to drink a lot of clean non-carbonated water on this day: at least 1. 5-2 liters.
Unloading on cottage cheese and kefir will speed up metabolism, saturate with calcium and help lose weight. You will need 600 g of cottage cheese 2-5% fat and 1 liter of 1% kefir. Divide the cottage cheese into 6 equal parts and eat every 2 hours with a glass of kefir.
Memo for losing weight
Do not make drastic changes in diet (for example, fasting after gluttony): this is a strong stress on the body, which can lead to unintended results. Even for a one-day unloading, you need to prepare: for 2-3 days, give up fatty, sweet and salty foods, slightly reduce the portions.
Do not overuse fasting days. The optimal duration of unloading is 1-2 days, maximum - 3. If you adhere to such a diet for a longer period, the body may lack vital nutrients.
Forget about "magic" diet pills. They tend to have many side effects, many of which are not researched or certified at all.
Once a week (but not more often) you can go to the bathhouse or sauna: toxins are eliminated along with sweat. Just do not drink sweet soda, beer and other alcohol there: these drinks will add calories. Give preference to herbal teas, rosehip decoction, berry juice, plain water.
If you don't play sports, then at least do morning exercises, walk for at least 2 hours a day, or run for at least 40 minutes.
Sleep for at least 8 hours: a person loses weight in a dream.
