Not to go on diets, eat well and lose weight it is not a fantasy, but the only healthy way to not only lose extra pounds but also to maintain harmony.
And if you want to reduce weight fast, it is worth adding to the daily diet products that make our body burn fat more actively.
Garlic and onion
The composition of these aromatic vegetables includes allicin, which not only gives them a specific pungent taste and smell but also provides conversion of stored fat into energy.
So add fresh onions and garlic to your dishes — this is useful not only for health but also for the figure.
Vitamin C, which is abundant in citrus fruits and especially red oranges, helps to reduce the level of the stress hormone cortisol quickly.
How does this help to lose weight?
The fact is that cortisol stimulates the body to store fat, and most often — in the waist area (for a good reason, there is even a special term — “cortisol stomach”).
And the lower the level of cortisol is, the easier it is for the body to lose fat waist fast.
They have few calories and a lot of iodine — minerals, which is necessary for the full functioning of the thyroid gland.
And the dysfunctions of the thyroid gland — one of the most common causes of excess weight, which is difficult to cope with.
But it’s important to remember that with some thyroid diseases, foods that are high in iodine can be harmful to your health.
Capsaicin, a compound found in hot pepper, can stimulate metabolism. Moreover, people who eat spicy foods are losing extra weight faster — and as a result, eat less than those who prefer fresh foods.
Coffee and black tea
Caffeine is also able to increase the metabolic rate — and we will burn more calories even at rest. But it is important not to exceed the recommended dose since in large doses it can suppress the production of serotonin.
One of the active ingredients in this bright yellow spice, curcumin, helps fight with heat by inhibiting the development of blood vessels. Moreover, turmeric is very beneficial for hair and skin and even helps to fight migraines.
If you seriously decide to take care of your health and figure and lose weight, you can not do without water.
Firstly, its deficiency can lead to the formation of edema, and secondly, it quenches thirst and does not raise blood sugar levels — unlike juices or other drinks.
Finally, if you drink a glass of water whenever you want to eat, you will end up eating less: both because part of the stomach will be occupied by water and because we often take thirst for a feeling of hunger.
Monounsaturated fats are an essential component of any healthy diet. Fat is necessary for our body, and if we do not get it from healthy products, the body will force us to “get” it from harmful fast food and fried foods filled with dangerous trans fats.
Olive oil is a champion in the content of healthy fats, which not only preserve our figure, but also take care of the health of the heart and blood vessels.
