Obesity is a serious problem that has affected the population of almost every country in the world. Therefore, now weight loss it is no longer just about the beauty or size of your favorite jeans. Sometimes fat people have to be reminded of the choice between life and death.
Experts estimate that at least 2.8 million adults die of obesity every year. Unfortunately, the mortality rate for this reason is growing rapidly.
Here are 7 basic weight loss rules for men and women who dream of losing weight
Eat fish, meat and avocados
In order to speed up your metabolism, you need to balance the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in your organism. As a rule, we have too much of the first and too little of the second. To fix this, you need to add salmon, sardines, herring, anchovies, shellfish to your diet, as well as crabs, shrimps, scallops, oysters, etc.
Instead of a traditional breakfast, have a cup of buttered coffee
Add 3-4 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil to your morning cup of tea or coffee. This is the perfect breakfast. If this is not enough for you, add a classic sandwich or three eggs to your breakfast. Once you enter a state of “ketosis,” you will find that you are no longer hungry in the morning. However, yet you have not had your breakfast. Besides, do not chew sweets in the morning. They will only increase your sugar cravings and make you overeat throughout the day.
Try to fast, but with meat
Everyone knows the benefits of fasting, even non-believers. The logic is usually this: you stop (almost) eating, your insulin levels drop, you feel hungry, but your body loses weight. If your goal is to drastically lower your blood insulin levels, there are two better ways. First, during the fast, you can force yourself to eat high-fat and low-carb foods. Second, you can eat nothing at all for 24 hours except fat (cheese, whipped cream, coconut oil, olive oil, lard, eggs, fatty meats).
Dark bitter vegetables are great food
Usually no one likes dark leafy vegetables like cabbage. Though completely in vain: it is a great source of weight loss substances. Focus on kale, chicory, Swiss chard, spinach, lettuce, dandelions, and mustard. Moreover, it will be better if it is “natural”, i.e. slightly bitter. Phytonutrients, excellent and very beneficial antioxidants, give these green vegetables their bitterness.
Never eat egg whites, omelets and potatoes
The yolk is the best part of the egg. Protein, on the other hand, is 50% protein, an egg and 50% protein, which it needs for development. Most people think egg yolk is the source of cholesterol that clogs our arteries, but this is not the case. The cholesterol contained in eggs does not clog the arteries, the fat here is quite “healthy”.
Now about the potatoes. They do not contain any valuable nutrients other than potassium. But it is full of starchy substances that negatively affect human health.
Coconut is the god of weight loss!
Coconuts are “almost salmon,” in terms of their brain health. This is partly because there are almost no carbs in them. This is partly because they are full of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). Coconut oil is 66% of them. MCT is a great energy drink. When these substances are burned in the body, ketones are formed (an alternative to the “fuel cells” of glucose), and this is the most useful type of fat. That is why regular consumption of coconuts is also an excellent prevention of obesity, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and other neurological diseases.
You can drink alcohol
The advantage of a low-carb diet is that you do not count calories. Your goal is to limit the intake of carbohydrates in your organism. Furthermore, that is good news for booze lovers. The main thing is not to drink beer, because it is just full of carbohydrates.
Focus on unsweetened drinks: whiskey, gin, rum, tequila, vodka. Each of them contains zero carbohydrates. Unless, of course, you dilute them with soda.
