Minus 5 kg
How to reduce appetite?
If you're used to having dinner right after you get home, take a break. Suffer 10 minutes, the next day - 15 minutes
Love to swim, but you can’t lose weight? To help swimming reduce weight, try the exercises recommended by American physiologist Richard Cotton. Go freestyle or dog-like. When you are doing a stroke with your right hand, perform sharp jerks with your right foot 3 times, then do the same on the left. Usually when we swim, we make 1-2 movements with legs simultaneously with one movement of the hands.
By increasing the number of leg movements, you increase the load on several muscle groups at once. So you can increase calorie burning by about 40% (which is about 130 kcal in 10 minutes of such a load). For comparison: in 10 minutes of normal swimming you lose 90 kcal. These calculations were done for women weighing approximately 75 kg.
A delicious and low-calorie dessert can be prepared without sugar.
- With whole grain toast fruit sauce goes well. Peel apples, pears or quinces from the peel and seeds, cut into slices. Simmer in a small amount of water until soft under the lid. You can add cinnamon or vanillin - this will enhance the natural sweetness of the fruit.
- Grind the peeled banana with a fork and darken it in a steam bath. It will become sweet, as bad as it gets.
- Instead of dessert, you can make assorted sweet vegetables. So, carrots and pumpkins, beets, prunes and apples are perfectly combined. Only beets and pumpkins must first be boiled, and as a fastening element, add a little breadcrumbs to the chopped vegetables.
- Sweeten drinks and give them a refined flavor ground cinnamon will help. Add a pinch of cinnamon and vanilla to tea or coffee with milk.
Salad dressing, from which you do not get fatter.
Water is the secret ingredient in our diet dressing: whisk 3 tbsp. l apple, cherry or wine vinegar (white wine), 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard, ¼ cup water, ¼ teaspoon salt and freshly ground black pepper and 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil.
Such a salad dressing (2 tbsp.) Contains 100 kcal. For comparison: in the same amount of the classic French dressing “Vinaigrette” - 162 kcal, that is, 62 kcal more!
Stop smoking and not get better.
Many people who want to quit smoking do not dare to take this step because of the fear of a sharp recovery. But quitting smoking should not be accompanied by instant weight gain. Studies by experts at Northwestern University, who monitored the condition and weight of about 2,200 people, showed that people who quit smoking and regularly weighed and ate no more than usual, not only not recovered, but even reduced their weight after three months an average of 1 kg.
Researchers attribute this to psychological motivation: success in one area increases our chances of success in others, so successful attempts to reduce weight increase your confidence that you will be able to quit smoking without harming your figure.

Want to lose weight? Drink more water! Very often, when we think that we are hungry, in fact we are thirsty. A glass of water drunk before meals will help regulate the appetite and not overeat. In addition, 1.5−2 liters of water drunk daily helps to cleanse the body, saturate it with oxygen, and also keep skin younger and firmer. Choose water of good quality, for example, such as BonAqua Viva - it is still water with a light taste of lemon or grapefruit. It perfectly quenches thirst, invigorates and tones. It is convenient to take stylish bottles with convenient lids with you when traveling, to the gym or to work. Doctors advise drinking the first glass immediately after waking up, and then drinking water often, but in small portions, during the day.
