A Full Breakfast
To start the day and get in shape, have ahearty breakfast because this is not the time to deprive yourself!
For example, you can eat a quarter of a baguette with butter along with a hot sugar-free beverage and a 100% pure fruit juice and a glass of milk.
If you want to start a more drastic diet, soya milk, cereals, honey, a lean dairy product and an egg will be the right solution.
A Balanced Lunch
At lunchtime, when your stomach is crying out for food, resist temptation and eat a balanced meal!
Opt for a sandwich with white meat and wholemeal bread and no mayonnaise. You can also combine meat with vegetables, yoghurt and water.
If you have time to cook, avoid meals with excessive fat and opt for a foil-wrapped meal cooked in the oven or a steamed or wok-fried dish. And if you cannot do without a sauce, try using 0% fromage blanc with chives or lemon for a light sauce.
A Light Dinner
This is not the time to give up: the evening meal should be light so your body does notstore up fat while you sleep!
You can eat fish, oil seeds (nuts, almonds, etc.) and drink a herbal tea. For those who are not so good at cooking, why not try preparing a simple light and quick meal: pasta with a coulis of fresh tomatoes and a little parmesan cheese.
If you feel like it, you can eat this meal up to 3 times a week.
It cannot be repeated enough, but the best way to lose weight is to play sports!
This is the ideal solution if your belly is starting to grow and the love handles are emerging. To do this, nothing beats a good session exercising the abs to get a flat stomach.
To lose weight effectively, endurance sports are your best solution, especially when practised at medium intensity. Running, cycling, swimming, walking, etc. You choose! To burn fat, nothing beats combining a cardiovascular activity with muscle building. Because muscles need more energy than fat, a muscular body will burn off calories more efficiently.
Finally, the key to success is practising sports on a regular basis, i.e. 2-3 hours of sports per week minimum. Pluck up your courage and you are guaranteed to see results!
When you go on a diet, the key is obviously being able to "RE-SIST". Indeed, it will not be easy but it's the price to pay for losing a few pounds. You can easily compensate for your frustration thanks to the sport. Our advice for resisting temptation:
• If you have a craving between meals or if you are used to taking a snack, choose fruits, cereal bars or protein-rich food such as ham
• Just before a meal, avoid drinking alcohol as much as possible. Rather than having some peanuts, eat surimi sticks or carrots
• Reduce your consumption of bread and cheese that should only be part of one meal a day
• Eat fish wrapped in foil at least three times a week, it's very good for diet and health
• Drink plenty of water to avoid feeling hungry
