If you think that you can get rid of extra pounds only by sitting on exhausting diets and constantly limiting your diet, you are deeply mistaken. In nature, there are a number of products that not only do not add anything superfluous, but also help to lose weight. You can eat them even after 6 pm and nothing will happen to your waist.
You can safely eat apples even at night, since they contain only 45 kcal per 100 grams of product and are 80% water. In addition, they are very beneficial for weight loss, because they hold the record for the content of useful soluble fiber in the form of pectin. This substance is considered a kind of orderly, as it improves digestion and promotes the removal of decay products and heavy metals from the body. Pectin also reduces the absorption of fat in the gastrointestinal tract, so you can safely eat apples for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as a snack between meals. Or arrange for yourself apple fasting days. On the figure, this will only be reflected positively, that is, in the direction of reducing weight. Therefore, eat apples and lose weight for health. And health will only be stronger, no wonder the proverb was invented: "An apple day keeps doctor away" or "A good doctor's apple is worth it."
This green handsome man generally refers to foods with a negative calorie content. That is, your body will spend more energy on its digestion than it will receive with it. For example, for dinner you eat 2 cucumbers with a calorie value of 40 kcal, and in order to digest them, your body spends 42 kcal. Thus, these cucumbers will remove 2 calories from you. Just eat cucumbers and lose weight.
Grapefruit is also a negative calorie food. It is the perfect choice for those looking to lose weight. Nutritionists constantly include it in all kinds of diets. And this is completely true, because grapefruit stimulates metabolism, improves the functioning of the digestive tract and the process of assimilating food.
In addition, this "paradise fruit" has the ability to remove excess fluid from the body. Namely, fluid retention in tissues often adds a couple of unnecessary kilograms to us.
Another plus in favor of the power of grapefruit in weight loss is its low glycemic index. Simply put, when a fruit is digested, its breakdown products are absorbed by the body very slowly. Therefore, you can feel full for a long time.
Very often, proper nutrition and diet are not enough to lose excess weight. To start losing weight, you need to start increasing your body's insulin sensitivity. Regular physical activity, adherence to the daily regimen and again grapefruit will help you with this. Let me explain why. Grapefruit holds the record for bioflavonoid content. These are active substances that are found in plants and provide their vital activity. One of these bioflavonoids is called naringenin and has long been used for weight loss purposes.
Canadian scientists have shown that naringenin activates the liver and accelerates the breakdown of body fat. And it is he who increases the sensitivity of cells to insulin. This means that glucose will be stored and stored in muscle rather than adipose tissue, and you will not gain weight.
Now they even produce a special extract from grapefruit bioflavonoids with naringenin for weight loss. In pharmacies it can be found under the name Citrosept.
Citrosept Is an extract from seeds, membranes and grapefruit pulp. And using it instead of the fruit itself is even better and more convenient, because the largest amount of bioflavonoids we need are found in seeds and membranes. And we don't eat them because of their bitter taste.
And, of course, the concentration of bioflavonoids in the extract is several times higher than in grapefruit. For example, 10 drops of Citrosept contain the same amount of bioflavonoids needed for weight loss as 15 kilograms of grapefruit. And in order to start the process of losing weight, 40 drops a day are enough.
Laminaria, also known as "seaweed", is an excellent product for those who seek to get rid of unnecessary pounds. This marine creature with a caloric value of only 25 kcal per 100 grams, is not only a rich source of iodine, potassium and sodium, but also a real delicacy. If cooked correctly, of course.
The benefits of kelp for losing weight is that during digestion, it swells, increases in volume, acquires the structure of a gel and completely fills the stomach. Another important property of this alga is its laxative effect.
Kelp is consumed in different ways. You can eat it, for example, as a salad, after a little cooking, or use dried seaweed as a substitute for table salt.
The secret of the benefits of sauerkraut, including for weight loss, is that it is the fermentation process that enriches the cabbage with vitamins and microelements and makes its composition unique.
How does it help you lose weight? Firstly, it has a very low calorie content, only 28 kcal per 100 grams, but at the same time, due to its high fiber content, it quickly gives a feeling of fullness. Secondly, vitamin B6, that is, pyridoxine, promotes the rapid breakdown and assimilation of proteins. So you can safely combine sauerkraut with meat or fish. Sauerkraut is also a good laxative. It is enough to drink a glass of cabbage juice to get rid of constipation and forget about the heaviness in the intestines.
Mushrooms are an excellent source of vegetable protein. They are almost as nutritious as meat, but there are 190 kcal per 100 grams of meat, and 100 grams of champignons or porcini mushrooms "weigh" only 30 kcal. Just do not stew them in sour cream, otherwise their calorie content will increase significantly.
The ideal option would be cream of mushroom soup, boiled mushroom pate or fried mushrooms with a little olive oil.
Why are mushrooms good for lovers of slimness? They fill you up and energize very quickly without adding extra calories. Conjugated linoleic acid is also present in mushrooms, which helps to reduce body fat.
Yogurt can also be categorized as a weight maintenance and weight loss product. But only if it is natural, contains no sugar, additives or fillers. It is this yoghurt that is the most useful and minimally high in calories. It contains only 60 kcal per 100 grams of product.
The main beneficial property of yogurt is its positive effect on the digestive system and intestinal health. Therefore, the digestion of food will go faster, and you will not be at risk of constipation.
And more recently, American researchers have shown that eating yogurt accelerates the loss of fat mass. According to them, people who eat at least 200 ml of yogurt per day increase the amount of fat burned by almost 30%.
