To lose excess weight, you don’t need to go on strict diets (you don’t need to go on them at all, nev­er), you just need to make a lit­tle changes in your dai­ly diet and update your eat­ing habits. And the extra “win­ter” kilo­grams and cen­time­ters will go away by them­selves.

Drink water instead of sugary drinks

The warmer the weath­er, the more often we feel thirsty. The best drink to drink is sim­ply plain water, which helps main­tain a healthy hydra­tion bal­ance and does­n’t cause dan­ger­ous insulin spikes like juice or soda. But if you’re tired of water and want some­thing new and refresh­ing? You can add cit­rus juice or lemon slices to the water, or you can make pop­si­cles by freez­ing the smooth­ie and adding them to the drink — it cools and gives a pleas­ant taste. Final­ly, you can make home­made ice tea — just with­out sug­ar, def­i­nite­ly with­out sug­ar!

Avoid one serving of meat per week

To make our diet health­i­er and health­i­er, we don’t have to switch entire­ly to plant-based pro­tein. More­over, for some of us this is pre­cise­ly con­traindi­cat­ed! But it nev­er hurts to slight­ly reduce its share in the diet: replace one meat lunch a week with a dish of plant ori­gin — mush­rooms, legumes, nuts. You will very quick­ly notice a pleas­ant dif­fer­ence — and your favorite jeans, by the way, too.

Switch to whole grain cereals

Oat­meal for break­fast? Great idea! And it will be even bet­ter if you make it not from the usu­al cere­al, but from whole grains, which con­tain a lot of healthy fiber and guar­an­tee you a feel­ing of full­ness until lunch. Tasty, very healthy – includ­ing for your fig­ure.

Avoid sweet yoghurts

As the old adver­tise­ment said, not all yogurts are cre­at­ed equal. Those that are full of sug­ar, jam and fla­vor­ing are more like­ly to harm our health than help – espe­cial­ly if you are used to eat­ing them on an emp­ty stom­ach. Sweet yogurt in the morn­ing is a real insulin shot that will make us want to eat all day. Switch to unsweet­ened yogurts, and to make the process faster and eas­i­er, add some fresh or frozen berries, nuts or dried fruits to them. Greek yogurt with nuts and berries for break­fast — what could be bet­ter?

Replace mayonnaise with avocado

If you are used to adding may­on­naise to sal­ads or sand­wich­es, try replac­ing it with avo­ca­do. Fine­ly chopped or ground in a blender, it will give the dish a thick, creamy taste, and at the same time add a lot of healthy unsat­u­rat­ed fats and omega‑3 acid, which can nev­er be enough.

Drink a cup of herbal tea before bed

Mint, chamomile, lemon balm, St. John’s wort — all these herbs are not only tasty, but also have a calm­ing effect. And good sleep is the key to health and good metab­o­lism. Before going to bed, drink a cup of a weak decoc­tion of these herbs and sleep sweet­ly until the morn­ing.

Replace half of your carbs with vegetables

There is no need to com­plete­ly give up car­bo­hy­drates — they are as nec­es­sary for our health as any oth­er nutri­ents. But try replac­ing half of your usu­al side dish of rice, pota­toes or bread with veg­eta­bles. Fresh, boiled or baked – it’s tasty and healthy. And very sim­ple!
