Enjoy this moment without haste under a cup of aromatic coffee, but be active throughout the day.

The most important thing is to decide for yourself once and for all that there is always enough food, no one takes it away or forbids it, you just choose the best for yourself in order to be more beautiful, slimmer and healthier.
Great time for fresh fruit, natural yoghurt, seasoned with porridge, and a piece of your favorite sweetness with coffee or fragrant tea.
In your plate should be carbohydrates, and proteins, and a portion of healthy fats.
Lunch can also include carbohydrates in the form of porridge (2-3 tablespoons).
A portion of lettuce and greens with butter, instead of salt, you can use lemon juice.
A serving of protein - fish or meat.
Avoid ground meat, it can be supplemented with different ingredients that increase the calorie content. Whole grilled poultry is the perfect choice.
Also, the breading and the method of cooking in deep fat can hide a few hundred calories in their crust.
In the evening, your plate should contain only protein, vegetables and some healthy fat.
Salad leaves should occupy most of the plates, their caloric content is low, but they contain a lot of fiber and perfectly satisfy hunger.
If it is possible, give preference to fish dishes instead of meat, so the food will digest faster and you will feel easier.
In between the basic techniques, you can add one or two snacks.
In the morning it can be fruit or berries (volume 150 grams).
And between lunch and dinner you can eat a portion of vegetables in the form of a salad.

We must move away from the stereotype that a vacation trip is always eating and drinking a lot and uncontrollably, that it is time to skip workouts and uncontrolled behavior in relation to the body.
