Eat more frequently
Eat more frequently, but don’t overdo it. If you eat regularly, you will choose your food wisely and you will avoid hunger attacks. Counting your calories is useful. Write down everything that you have eaten in one day until you get a feel how much is enough for you.
Diet for six-packs
This diet includes food, which is rich in proteins, fibers and healthy fats. Make sure your meal includes one of the following foods: almonds and other nuts, spinach and other green vegetables, dairy products, oatmeal, eggs, turkey and other lean meats, peanut butter, olive oil, whole grain bread, berries.
Experts are saying that people today are chronically dehydrated. We are often not aware that we are thirsty and we think that we don’t need any water. Try to drink a glass of water every day before your meal.
Don’t forget the proteins
Our body needs proteins because from them it forms a number of substances that are necessary for the normal functioning. Good sources of proteins are eggs, chicken, turkey and peanuts.
Carbohydrates are also important
Do not avoid carbohydrates! Eat your carbs for breakfast and before and after a workout. Experts suggest one gram of carbohydrates per 0.5kg of your body weight. Therefore, potatoes, rice and pasta should be on your menu.
Pay more attention to vegetables
One tomato next to steak and lettuce sandwich is by no means enough. Vegetables are full of fibers, which are your friend! Food rich in fiber is perfect for several reasons: you need more time to chew it and consequently you eat more slowly and probably less. In addition, vegetables need more time to digest. Not to mention all the vitamins and minerals that help your body!
We often eat our meals very quickly. There is a high probability that we eat in front of a computer or while watching TV. In such way we eat more that we would otherwise. When it’s time for a meal, it should be only for a meal. Concentrate and enjoy every bite. Therefore, take your time and actually taste the food and its texture.
