In an effort to lose weight , many people try different methods of correcting excess weight : small meals, refusal of carbohydrates, mono-diet, fasting and many other things. However, often even the most effective methods do not work. They stopped eating after 18:00, and the excess weight remained. You eat little by little 6-7 times a day, but you can't lose weight . Eats only the most useful and low-calorie foods , but the indicator on the scales remains unchanged. Perhaps the notion of what is harmful and what is good should be revised? Let's recall common mistakes that can explain why instead of losing weight , instead of losing weight, excess weight appears .
One of the main enemies of everyone who wants to lose weight . If you decide to get rid of excess weight , you need to completely give up alcohol. Yes, there may be scientific studies that testify to certain positive aspects of dry wine, but alcohol is an absolutely unnecessary substance for our body. The truth is that even 1-2 glasses of wine accompanied by the most healthy dinner nullify all efforts to lose weight . On average, a glass of wine is about 100 kcal, while alcohol increases appetite. 300 kcal per evening + insidious 400-450 kcal in the form of a snack - definitely will not help in the fight against excess weight. By the way, wine is one of the safest alcoholic beverages (if the term "safe" can be used for alcohol at all). The calorie content of strong alcohol can reach up to 600 kcal, while vodka, rum and tequila are not only high in calories, but also do not contain any nutrients. The body processes these types of alcohol and, without receiving vitamins and trace elements, begins to demand them - hence the appetite that asks for snacks. Unlike vodka, wine and beer contain vitamins and enzymes that help digestion, but the harm from alcohol still outweighs the benefits. The greatest danger is hidden in cocktails. Their caloric content can reach 700-800 kcal per 100 g. A mixture of alcohol, sweet juices, aloe and liqueurs gives a deceptive feeling of thirst satisfaction, but at the same time we sincerely believe that we are drinking only one drink, which, in terms of calories, can compete with a full dinner. And if we are talking about 2-3 cocktails, then the diet can be considered finished.
If you have completely given up baking and flour products , it is not bad, but it is important to know that you can do without fanaticism in such a matter. Buns, bread for toasts, croissants and cakes - of course, not an option for weight loss . But the information about the calorie content of Italian pasta has long since changed. If pasta from durum wheat is cooked until al dente, and supplemented with simple tomato sauce, seafood or a small amount of olive oil, then we will get an almost dietary product - such a dish contains about 130 kcal per 100 g. Harmful pasta is made by Parmesan and cream sauce, from which is better to refuse. By the way, among the advantages of durum wheat pasta is a low glycemic index and a useful composition: fiber, vitamins B and E, as well as amino acids.
It should also be mentioned about obviously useful products that have a dark side.Avocado
Even with such a superfood and source of everything useful for the body as avocado, not everything is simple. Useful for its rich fats and trace elements, avocado is higher in calories than pork: about 250 kcal. Because of this, think carefully before adding healthy guacamole to a diet meal.
Salmon are also more insidious than meets the eye. Almost 200 kcal per 100 g is twice as much as in white types of fish, poultry and some types of meat.
The leader of self-deception of all ratings is yogurt. People have been convinced for so many years with the help of magazines and television about the benefits of yogurt that, it would seem, there is no more dietary product . And even if there is a cherished label about 0% fat on the package, pay attention to the small print: if you see an inscription like "carbohydrates 15%", then know that 3-4 spoons of sugar in this yogurt will not allow you to lose weight quickly .
It is quite common to think that if you can eat anything to lose weight , it is pineapple. Like, this fruit has simply extraordinary fat-burning potential. Perhaps there is some truth in this, but at the same time, there is also the fact that pineapple has a very high glycemic index, which makes it one of the most harmful foods for weight loss .
It would seem that there is nothing better for everyone who is on a diet and misses sugar, than a natural product - dried fruits. And here is the reverse side of the coin: many people forget that the calorie content of dried fruits increases several times. For example, if a fresh apple contains about 70 kcal, then a dried one already contains 250. The same is the case with other dried fruits: grapes contain 70 kcal, and raisins - 300.
If you think that milk chocolate is evil and dark chocolate is pure good, then you are in for a disappointment. Yes, dark chocolate has a simpler and more natural composition (and therefore better), but it contains almost as many calories as butter.
We all know how much sugar is in Coca-Cola, but we think that lemonade and iced coffee as a cooling drink are the lesser evil. But. Lemonades are often prepared on the basis of syrup, and cucumbers, lemon, mint and other fruits are usually added only for aroma and beauty. A minimum of 150 kcal is too high an energy value for a drink, isn't it? But the drinks that will definitely contribute to weight loss are water and tea. Without sugar.
