The phrase “prop­er nutri­tion” is asso­ci­at­ed with some­thing bor­ing and insipid, “healthy food” with expen­sive and com­pli­cat­ed. But both are stereo­types. In fact, you can eas­i­ly cre­ate a healthy and bal­anced menu from avail­able prod­ucts and your favorite dish­es. We tell you how.

Anita Lutsenko's secret to losing weight

The main rule of a healthy diet (and healthy weight loss if you need to get rid of excess weight) is to give up fast­ing and diet­ing. If you eat lit­tle, the body does not get enough vit­a­mins, microele­ments and nutri­ents, and this leads to dis­eases and break­downs: when you deny your­self some­thing for a long time, then you lose con­trol over your­self and “fell into a binge”. In addi­tion, after a diet, the lost kilo­grams always return.

There­fore, the reg­i­men is so impor­tant: 3 main meals and 1 snack. Between them, main­tain inter­vals of 3–4 hours, with­out being dis­tract­ed by cook­ies, sweets, lat­te. How­ev­er, you will not be drawn to them if you eat reg­u­lar­ly and in a bal­anced way.

What does balanced mean?

  • ½ of your plate fill with col­or­ful veg­eta­bles, fruits and berries.
  • ¼ plate These are whole grains: buck­wheat, oat­meal, quinoa, brown rice, spelled, durum wheat pas­ta and whole grain bread.
  • I ¼ more plate should take pro­teins (eggs, fish and seafood, lean meat, poul­try, legumes).

Be sure to include fats in the menu — extra vir­gin olive oil, nuts and seeds, oily fish like mack­er­el and salmon.

So a bal­anced diet is not just cel­ery and chick­en breast. “Healthy food is the one that is tasty,” says coach and TV pre­sen­ter Ani­ta Lut­senko. There are a huge num­ber of myths about healthy eat­ing, and they are believed. I also once thought: you need to eat less to have a beau­ti­ful body. And it is also con­sid­ered that healthy nutri­tion excludes pas­ta, pota­toes, bread, sweets. But it’s not like that!”

The more var­ied your diet, the more use­ful you get from food. And don’t give up on your favorite foods. Here, for exam­ple, is what the menu for the day looks like on the WOWBODY home work­out, nutri­tion and moti­va­tion pro­gram, a project by Ani­ta Lut­senko and Yulia Bog­dan.
