It’s not as hard to lose weight as it is to keep the weight off afterward. Surely many of us have encountered this problem, because, according to statistics, only two out of ten women manage to maintain a new, slender figure. How to prevent the dropped kilograms from returning like a boomerang? To do this, you need to follow a few simple rules.
1. The right exit from the diet
Do not jump on food right away, gradually add foods that were previously impossible to your diet. During the first two weeks after the diet, it is worth adding 200 kcal to the daily diet due to the “right” carbohydrates and fats, but forget about rolls and sweets, replace them with whole grain bread, dark chocolate and nuts.
2. Stick to fractional meals
Try to eat 5–6 times a day in small portions (150–200 g). This will prevent your metabolism from slowing down.
3. Have breakfast
Never skip breakfast, otherwise there is a risk of overeating at lunch, thereby sorting out the required daily allowance of kilocalories. In general, try not to skip meals, because this is a direct path to overeating or slowing down the metabolism.
4. Plentiful drink
Drink about two liters of pure water a day. Drink a glass or two of water 15 minutes before meals (this will prevent overeating), then do not drink for an hour so as not to interfere with digestion.
5. Healthy lifestyle
To maintain a new shape, the body needs to receive physical activity, 30 minutes daily. Start the day with a workout or walk at a brisk pace, make such activities regular. Get rid of bad habits, because it leads to excess weight.
And of course, believe in yourself, love yourself, then you will certainly keep the achieved form and be proud of it.
