The most difficult in any diet for girls is usually the rejection of sweets. But in fact it is not necessary - of course, if you do not eat sweets in unlimited quantities and with every meal. For the rest, you can allow yourself something tasty and not even worry about the figure. The main thing is to know a few tricks:
- Prefer natural sugars. This means that a sweet banana contains more nutrients and fewer calories, saturated fats and trans fats than, say, donut in the icing. Although sugar in banana even more. In addition, products with natural sugar usually contain other beneficial substances, such as fiber, protein, and healthy fats.
- Continuing the theme: balance the consumption of sugar and carbohydrates with a sufficient amount of protein, fiber and healthy fats. These three substances slow down the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, which reduces the level of energy and sugar in the blood. This means that the effect of the sweet will last longer, and to saturate you will need less harmful tasty foods.
- Eat sweets before or after workouts. Although it is wrong, but better than nothing.And the idea to eat a cake, and then "run out" in the gym, is very real. Moreover, the sweet can even charge you with energy for a more active workout.
- Do not drink coffee with sugar or something sweet. Yes, it is hard, but important. Caffeine inhibits the body's ability to process sugar, temporarily increasing insulin resistance and promoting fat deposition.
- Add cinnamon to the diet - it prolongs the feeling of fullness and reduces the level of sugar in the blood, which contributes to weight loss.
