Sounds pretty promising right?
Well, it’s not the healthiest way to do it, but I can proudly announce that I’ve lost 1kg (2,2 pounds) after 4 days of dieting!
It’s really not too hard to lose a few extra pounds if your are determined to stick to some basic rules:
- Substitute unhealthy food with healthy food
snacks: instead of pringles, chocolate and other cool stuff, I had fruits and vegetables
lunch or dinner: sometimes I would have a salad or a smoothie bowl instead
low-carb: try to have low-carb meals. you can have dark whole-grained bread instead of white toasts for example
- Don’t eat until you are full
it’s not very satisfying but it’s possible! Don’t let the black hole in you devour every last bit that’s on the table. Plan ahead how much you should have during a meal and stick to it.
- Drink something when you are hungry
that’s not satisfying either, but it does fill your belly a little bit. Plus, it’ll help you cleanse your body. Just try to drink more water in general! (avoid sugary drinks)
- Don’t have food at night
that was probably the most difficult part of my diet, but after two days my body got used to it and I almost don’t feel the urge to have a snack after 8pm anymore.
- Say no to cake
Just say no.
Well, I admit one afternoon I was really hungry and I had half a burrito (I could have eaten 2 though) that was not planned, but I think a diet shouldn’t be a cruel torture thing^^. It definitely should be a little annoying and difficult, but if nothing can stop you from having a burrito, have it!
There are still 0,3kg left (0,66 pounds) until I reach my goal and of course I know that a diet only helps you to lose weight, but if you also want a flat belly, you definitely should work out! So mayyybee, if I’m not too lazy I’ll start doing some exercises soon 🙂
