The shortest winter month is approaching, followed by spring. It's time to think about what we can do useful for our body and how to show love and care for ourselves in order to get the first obvious results in two weeks.
Nutritionist and nutritionist Anna Berseneva talks about simple habits that will quickly have a positive effect if you practice them daily. Soon you will feel how your condition improves, and the extra pounds go away.
Morning: a little exercise and warm water with lemon
Morning is an extremely important time, it lays the direction for the next day ... I propose to include two rituals for health and beauty.
Do a short warm-up after sleep
After waking up, do 100 short jumps or put our feet shoulder-width apart and knocking heels on the floor. For what? This helps to disperse lymph throughout the body and with it - energy.
Drink warm water with lemon
Drink one to three glasses depending on how your body responds to them. We do this 30-40 minutes before each meal. The water temperature should be between 40 and 60 degrees. Such a ritual will help start the process of cleansing the body of everything that did not have time to leave it yesterday.
Recipe for happiness: how to learn to wake up before the alarm clock?
How to start your day right, wake up in a good mood, motivate yourself and prepare a nutritious breakfast.
Scientific approach: why drink water with lemon in the morning?
5 reasons to make this ritual a regular habit.
Day: green salad and fruit for lunch
Start lunch with a green salad
Prepare a small portion of green salad that is comfortable for you and start lunch with it. Green leafy vegetables such as:
- iceberg salad;
- kail, etc.
Eat fruit before 4:00 pm
Fruit and sweets, even the most useful, should be eaten before 4 pm. Thus, the carbohydrates that appear in the body will have time to be spent on intellectual and physical activity, and not on the formation of a fat layer.
Fruitarianism. What happens to the body if you eat only fruits?
The ex-fruit eater tells why she lost weight and then refused such a diet.
Evening: decoction of chamomile mint and a light dinner
Avoid caffeine and replace it with a healthy alternative
Minimumand two hours before bedtime we stop drinking caffeine with tea, coffee or cocoa. But you can safely drink a decoction of chamomile or mint.
Have a dinner of vegetables and protein
For dinner we prefer vegetables, preferably lightly cooked: steamed or blanched. A huge plus for your dinner is digestible protein. Great options for traditional food:
- white fish;
- egg white.
Plant-based diet alternatives:
- cedar or almond protein (cake);
Ventilate the room before bed
Be sure to ventilate the room in which we will sleep. An elementary rule that is so often forgotten ... But then pills for headaches and a triple dose of caffeine in the morning are used.
Sounds easy? Then let's go!
