The excesses you've been committing in the last few months do not fool: you need to lose a few pounds. Iara Rodrigues, a nutritionist at the New Body clinic in Lisbon, helps her.
First of all, it is important to clarify that the assumption of this diet is not to make you lose weight at any cost, but rather to readjust your silhouette in a healthy and sustainable way so that you do not regrow. In fact, there is no point in making a drastic food restriction to lose weight in record time, because as soon as you return to eating 'normally' the pounds lost also come back and often 'accompanied'.
"It took you one, two, five or more years to gain those" pounds "that both bother you, why should you believe that, in a short time, it will be possible to lose them?" "It is well known that fasting or skipping meals is detrimental both to health and to good intentions: after long periods of time without eating, excesses tend to be committed.
Radicalism is not the solution: eliminating food or abruptly reducing the calories eaten can give bad results, "he says. So what's the solution? According to Iara Rodrigues, "losing weight implies, above all, a change in behavior". As? "Start by identifying the presence of extra pounds, think about the discomfort that it causes, as well as the habits that led to this situation," says the nutritionist. Then "use common sense, draw up a plan with realistic and gradual goals, and find the motivation you need to start and maintain the process."
Still, you can not always control weight without help. In this case,

Diet Rules
As Iara Rodrigues points out, "a diet whose goal is to lose weight in a few days should never be your first choice." The alternative? "Do it gradually and without radicalism." To this end, the nutritionist points out the following rules:
Eat more often and in less quantity
"The first measures for the correction of weight impose the reduction of the daily caloric intake. In addition, the interval between meals should vary according to the digestion time of each individual and the food eaten, but should not exceed, on average, three hours. The important thing is to eat before you feel hungry. "
Choosing Food
'A "fast-track" diet should abound with "healthy" foods and exclude "non-recommended" (fatty cheeses, sausages, alcohol, soda, biscuits, ice cream, chocolates, pastries, etc.). It should also include an amount of protein (fish, meat or legumes) and fat. Preference should be given to olive oil, which accompanies vegetables. In the interim meals, you should opt for fruit or yogurts.
