Myth: Fasting or low-calorie diets

Starvation and strict low-calorie diets lead to an underestimation of metabolic processes, and therefore when you return to normal life and your usual diet, weight also returns.

True: A balanced diet corresponding to your physiology

You need to lose weight the way you will eat all your life, minus 30% of the total diet. Initially, you need to determine for yourself what products and dishes are useful for you, useless and harmful.

Correctly combine healthy and junk food. Eat right five days a week, develop the right eating habits, and two - relax, eat as it will. With this approach, there is no slowing down of metabolic processes, you develop your own individual style of nutrition, and at the end of the weight loss process you get a stable result.

Myth: We do not drink a lot of water because of the risk of edema.

Righteousness: Well-developed diet

For the restoration of metabolic processes is very important diet. Every 3-4 hours a certain amount of food should get into your body, from 350 to 400 g. With this food style, you will not feel a strong feeling of hunger, you can make the right decision when choosing foods, and this will support your metabolism at the proper level.

Myth: Do a lot of sports

Strengthened exercise, long-term with a large physical activity naturally contribute to weight loss and slim figure. But our body becomes accustomed to such high energy costs, and in the case of termination of these activities dropped pounds returned.

We can not rely on the fact that we will spend our whole life in the gym.

Righteousness: Daily charge from 20 to 40 minutes

Your physical activities, as well as nutrition, must be selected individually. Enough 20-minute charge to keep fit. But this should be one of the rules of your life. Select exercises so that you can perform them daily, throughout life, and it brought you pleasure.
