After this period of self-isolation at home, we emerge either weaker or fatter. Those who do not know or do not like to cook can enter the first category, and in the absence of any temptation from the fridge, eat less. But in the second category you can find thouse who are bored, and enjoy cooking or snacking.
Do you belong to the category of those who simply cannot refrain from ranting? Find out that the chaotic meal between meals is the number one enemy of the figure. Firstly because you risk exceeding the measure and consume too many calories, secondly because this type of "snack" consists of foods high in fat or too sweet.
Here are some tricks to keep you busy!
Get rid of temptations. First of all, you are no longer stocked with chocolates, biscuits, chips, in the idea that it is "better to be at home". If they are, you'll think of them.
Eat neatly, at fixed hours and every three hours. This way, you do not risk hypoglycaemia, do not lower your blood glucose so that you feel the need to replace it. Nutritionists recommend small and thick meals rather than staying hungry. Then you fall easier in temptation and eat more calories than necessary.
The two snacks of the day contain low calorie but healthy foods. Give up pastry, chips and biscuits with chocolate and choose natural yogurts, oily fruits, bananas, raw vegetables (carrot pieces, gooseberries, cucumbers, peppers).
Difference between hunger and temptation.Nowadays, we do not eat from hunger, in the true sense of the word. We crave lust, boredom or nervousness. One trick is to use the fruit test: ask yourself if you have eaten a fruit. If so, then you may be hungry. If not, it's probably just a craving for something sweet or unhealthy, in which case it's good to educate yourself not to make immediate decisions.
Don't forget to drink water. The body may misinterpret brain signals, and what feels like a craving for "something" may be a sign of thirst. Drink a glass and wait a few minutes. If your appetite disappears, your body just needs to hydrate.
Consume more protein and fiber. Proteins reduce appetite, especially if they are eaten at breakfast. Fibers (from whole grains, rice, raw fruits and vegetables) contain many vitamins and minerals and give you a feeling of satiety.
If you feel the need for sweets, you can prepare something healthy and natural in your home. A delicious "chocolate" can be made quickly from a teaspoon of cocoa, one of cinnamon, seeds of all kinds (what you have in the house: sunflower, pumpkin, nuts and honey for homogenization. You can also add dry pollen for added vitamins and minerals that strengthen immunity.
