Sometimes, if you eat lard with butter, you get fat and you suffer. But if you eat the same lard, but with mustard or horseradish, you remain a slim doe. And happy. The main thing, of course, is to eat fat in moderation. And do not forget about dumbbells. It is not always necessary to suffer on a low-calorie diet. You can add to your diet ingredients that speed up your metabolism and reduce your appetite. Top 10 foods that will help you get a beautiful body:
What’s the power? Tomatoes help the liver overcome fatty foods and various gastronomic excesses, which most of us are not squeamish about.
How to eat them. Just make it a rule: add tomatoes to any fatty dish – broth, meat stew, etc.
What’s the power? The traditional Russian seasoning will not only beat a tear out of you: the enzymes that this miracle root contains, stimulate the breakdown of fat.
How to eat it? With cold cuts, of course, that’s first of all. However, horseradish goes just as well with fish. It can also be added to the filling of pies (fish or meat).
What’s the power? A quarter teaspoon of cinnamon a week will help the body in breaking down the carbohydrates that are deposited as fat on your flanks and soft spot. Plus, it will noticeably lower your blood levels of “bad” cholesterol.
How to eat. Do not stop at buns and coffee with cinnamon – experiment! For example, you can add cinnamon to stews or to tea brew (along with cardamom).
What’s the power of it? Curcumin stimulates fat burning and aids digestion. Look at skinny Indians and believe in its power.
How to eat it? Meat or vegetable soup flavored with turmeric is great.
What’s the power in it? Twenty grams of mustard will help your body break down fat 20% faster.
How to eat it. Liquid mustard is not the only option. Buy it in grains and add it, with the cinnamon and turmeric already mentioned, to marinades for vegetables and meat.
What’s the power? Black pepper contains piperine – it provides its spiciness and stimulates the metabolism, which means it helps you lose weight.
How to eat it. Besides the obvious options, you can add black pepper to tea or hot chocolate – along with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and milk.
What’s the power? Nutritionists assure: one grapefruit daily for three months will help you lose 3.5 kilograms.
How to eat it? You can, for example, make a marinade for chicken from grapefruit juice, salt and pepper.
What’s the power? Vinegar acid inhibits the digestion process. It puts off the time when you get hungry again.
How to eat? Olive oil, wine vinegar and spices to taste make a great dressing for a vegetable salad. And a couple tablespoons will help make the meat softer.
What’s the power? This tropical fruit contains bromelain, an enzyme that speeds up the metabolism.
How to eat it. Complete a chicken salad with pineapple (you can also add chili peppers to it).
What’s the power of them? Beans are rich in fiber, so they keep you feeling full much longer than a cake with sugar and butter (no, this is not a joke, they make one in Armenia, and it’s called “gata”).
How to eat it? A breakfast option: bake pre-boiled or canned beans with paprika, black pepper and tomatoes.
The right combination
Everyone who strives for perfect shapes, it is recommended to pay attention to protein and vegetables. This combination is effective because protein helps “build” muscles and energizes, while vegetables are rich in fiber, which ensures proper digestion.
Another good combination is carbohydrates and vegetables. Carbohydrates are present in potatoes and rice. However, it is not recommended to consume carbohydrates with proteins – together they stimulate weight gain. Therefore, it is optimal to combine carbohydrates with vegetables.
What you should NOT eat if you want to lose weight.
If you are working on your figure, your diet should not include semi-finished and artificial yogurts (especially those that have a filler, even if the packaging says “non-fat”). Also, for the time of weight loss you need to exclude the use of sweetener – it slows down the metabolism and activates the need for sugar. Flour will also not help you lose weight – it similarly inhibits the metabolism, so the energy will eventually accumulate in the form of extra centimeters. The exception may be a situation where flour is consumed in small amounts.
