We ate, we drunk, we ate again and we drunk again ... One morning you went on the scale and you started screaming! Now what? What are you doing to do? First of all, don't worry and don't starve to death to lose the weight you gained. If you follow the instructions below, you will be back on track in no time.
Our number one ally always and everywhere. After the large amount of food, sugar and alcohol, our body craves both hydration and detoxification. The best way to do this is by drinking plenty of water. If you find it difficult or forget to drink water, try setting an alarm, adding something like mint, cucumber or some fruit to your bottle to give it a more pleasant and attractive taste.
2) Less alcohol, less coffee and more water (which takes us back to step one).
3) Small and frequent meals.
During the holiday season small meals were replaced by large amounts of food once or twice a day.
Aim to have 5 small meals a day, two of them as a snack. Like this, you will activate and increase your metabolism.
4) Light and nutritious breakfast.
Say goodbye to puffs, cakes and pastries for a while and choose a breakfast that combines lean protein, "good" carbohydrates and fruit.
5) Homemade and light food.
Combine a source of protein (fish, chicken, red meat) with a bowl of salad and a small amount of carbohydrates. Eat the salad before the main meal and pay attention to the amount of olive oil you add.
6) Say yes to fruits.
Every season of the year offers us unique and sweet fruits. Try to replace the chocolate bar with a fruit. If it's not enough sweet for you, cut the fruit into a bowl and add some honey, 1-2 walnuts or chia seeds.
Ιn conclusion, no matter the plan you follow, don't feel bad about your weight. Think that during holidays you had good time that you spend with your loved ones with whom you spent beautiful moments.
