I hate diets because I am a foodie.So all this no-carb-no-this-no-that stuff is not going to work for me.
But lately my eating habits were pretty bad: Late night chocolate munching,a lot of salted peanuts and tons of cookies.
And since the only scale in my house is a food scale,I didn't realize how much weight I put on.
5 kilos in a few weeks......
The first step was to cut cola and all his cousins.It's sooo full of sugar and other stuff that nobody needs.
Cutting this bad habit was a great decision,because it feels so great.The first days were difficult....of course,because cola has quite a bit of caffeine and the body gets used to it.
That was the first step.
Cardio-work out is step number 2.I can't go jogging due to a problem in my knees,but I can walk!
The mini-town I live in is perfect for walks.....3-4 times a week for 2 hours.And now that summer is here,the sea will be my best workout buddy.
Till now it's working great.
And today I started the hardest part....step number 3: Not eating after 8:30 pm.
This has worked well in the past.
If I eat a small salad or some fruit at 8:15 I am fine and won't be hungry till I go to bed.
And to support good health during this process,I will take grapeseed extract supplement and mix 200 ml of red grapefruit with 1,3 liters of water.
One bottle of this+ one (1.5 liter) bottle of plain water+all the tea that I consume
This 'method' worked well for me last year,because it's not too extreme.If I wouldn't have those munch-attacks at night,there would be no extra 5 kilos of muffin top.
And I drink the grapefruit water at night,so my taste buds have something to do,but I really like grapefruit so it could be much worse.
Let's see how much time will pass,until I am back to normal.
And no,it's not the end of the world if you gain weight.With any kind of extreme diet,I could loose them in a few days,but the healthy and slow way is better.
But I am not a doctor! You should always consult a specialist before making drastic changes in your diet/nutrition.
Do you have any secrets for getting back in shape?
