On the eve of the New Year and Christmas holidays with endless feasts and risks of excessive gluttony, nutritionists named several products that should be remembered both during the holidays and on weekdays. These products can be eaten even in small quantities, and at the same time remain full, burning fat that has accumulated along the way.Natural vegetables and fruits
The first place in the post-New Year's menu is natural vegetables and fruits. There is quite a lot of water and fiber here. It is known that in the process of digesting apples, the hormone GLP-1 is produced, which sends a signal of satiety to the brain. But the main thing is not to snack on an apple after a hearty feast, but to eat it on an empty stomach - before eating. In this case, the metabolism will go faster, the feeling of satiety will come sooner. Fresh cucumbers and peaches will also help you avoid overeating at lunch. And after a hearty lunch, it will not be superfluous to eat a slice of fresh pineapple. It contains the substance bromelain, it is called a natural fat burner.
Next in the list of post-holiday benefits are products that contain vegetable proteins. These components are able to saturate and replenish the body with energy. Moreover, vegetable proteins do it faster than carbohydrates or fats. By the way, invented chocolate that does not make you fat.
It is known that, for example, one portion of oatmeal cooked in skimmed milk or water fills the stomach twice as much as flakes eaten dry. Although the main ingredient here is one.
It is worth taking into account that decoctions of cereals have a healing effect on the mucous membranes of the stomach. These are means that reduce acidity. And this can be important for someone who has an ulcer and gastritis. And after abundant holidays, these sores, most likely, did not play out as a joke.
It is appropriate to mention one of the main postulates for those who are losing weight: they say, if you want to eat, it is better to drink. But for the most part it is nothing more than a myth. In fact, according to nutritionists, the feeling of satiety from drinks is somewhat weaker than from food. Drinks do not require energy expenditure for chewing, and the brain simply does not perceive such an action as equal to eating. With drinks, a person manages to swallow a lot of calories without feeling full.Turn off the TV
If you don't want to overeat, try to have lunch more often - have dinner alone. It is better to turn off the TV and computer during the meal. In the course of numerous surveys, it became clear that a person eats seventy percent more when he watches television or dines in a friendly company.
It is worth taking into account that the feeling of satiety, one way or another, is affected by a person's weight. Scientists know that the production of PYY, the satiety hormone, is reduced in the body of obese people. The feeling of pleasure from eating is dulled, and a person is forced to eat more sweet and fatty food. As a result, a person gets even fatter.
