if you knew everyone at work/ school would talk about your weight every day they see you, would you be more likely to lose or gain? pressure is how celebs do it
is there any way to lose 3 kilos in 15 days? 1200kcals and exercise every day. but you are not going to stick to it so instead follow a slow weight loss, healthy lifestyle
if you don't have the willpower to rule foods out try putting foods in and BE ACTICE
its important to know that humans thrive on a diet high in
-wholegrain cereals, wholemeal breads, brown rice, wholegrain pasta and jacket potatoes.
-every type of beans,
-fruits (watermelon, pear, chopped pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, figs, peach, grapes, apricots, mango, cherries, orange segments, avocado)
-vegetables (peppers, mushrooms, celery, carrots, rhubarb, tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, sweetcorn, spinach, peas, cauliflower, leeks, sweet potatoes, parsnips, asparagus, squash, cucumber, eggplants, brussel sprouts)
-with a small amount of nuts, fish, meat, dairy and animal products.
and everything else (cake, crisps, mayo, butter, chips, fast food, pastries, fizzy drinks) is actually causing damage and weight gain
exercise for 1+ hours four times a week. join classes with friends/ siblings. jogging, cycling to work/school/town, swimming, surfing, dancing, aerobics, a martial art, ice-skating, roller-blading, tennis, basketball, go gym, yoga, orienteering, trampolining or garden work
example healthy menu
-for breakfast always start with fruit like watermelon, pear, chopped pineapple, kiwi with wholegrain cereal and low-fat milk or brown toast with topping like beans, egg, peanut butter and banana
-lunch can be a wholemeal sandwich, bagel, roll, wrap with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and either tuna, chopped avocado, hummus, ham or cheese(no butter or mayo) or a pasta and vegetable dish and a tub of fruit (strawberries, figs, peach, grapes, apricots)
-dinner should be 1/4 protein(beans, egg, meat, fish) 1/3 carb (potato, brown rice/pasta) and the rest vegetables(salad, boiled, roasted). eg. pepper and meatballs in tomato sauce on spaghetti, roast beef dinner
-supper can be carton veg soup, bruchetta, crackers, veg sticks dipped in peanut butter or salsa or a yogurt and a piece of fruit eg. mango, cherries, orange segments
drink lots of water- with every meal, carry a bottle and try get 1.5l daily
snack on herbal tea eg. apple, ginger, chamomile
eat fruit smoothies, popcorn, pancakes with stewed apple and Cinnamon(no sugar), oven chips and bean chili for treats
when changing your diet put thought into buying food to make eating healthy easier- if its in the house your tempted to eat it
use 1 teaspoon oil when you fry
don't drink calories- soda, milk, fruit juice, tea and coffee
