Make a weekly planning of your meals and, make the shopping list. If the purchase is not planned, it is very likely that you end up eating or eating anything that damages the quality of your diet and makes it difficult to lose weight. The presence of unhealthy food at home increases the possibility of failure, so it could be said that it is a determining factor for success in the short and long term. Be open to try new things!

3. The plate method

When planning your meals and dinners I advise you to keep in mind the plate method that will help you ensure that they are balanced, varied and delimit quantities. Always give preference, with half your plate, to both raw and cooked vegetables. With salads, the amount ingested is usually not enough, so you should also not forget to also consume vegetables. A quarter of a plate should be proteins in the form of eggs, meat, fish, seafood, vegetable protein or legumes, and the other quarter of a plate should be made up of carbohydrates such as pasta, rice, potatoes or bread.

4.- Eat Healthy Super Snacks

If you are hungry before your next meal and do not want to compromise your weight and conscience. Then consider making a list of Healthy Super snacks of your choice, for example: celery and hummus, Greek Yogurt, raisins, walnuts, almonds, fruit salad, avocado and sugar crackers, apple slices and raw honey.

5.-Sleep to lose weight

It is proven that the lack of sleep increases the level of the hunger hormone called “Ghrelin”, and unfortunately decreases the production of hormones that give the sensation of satiety called “Leptin”. So do not deprive yourself of sleeping a minimum of 7 hours, your body will burn fat, sugar and calories so that during those 7 hours it stays at an optimal temperature so you can rest. Like while you sleep your body uses what it has in reserve to be able to function. When you wake up you will feel better, rested, stronger and thinner.

6.-No to Sugar

Stop eating high sugar foods, eliminate high sugar snacks altogether. Sugar is temporary fuel that does not allow you to eliminate body fat since your body runs on sugar, which does not allow you to burn fat so you can continue to consume more sugar. Replace those snacks with healthy snacks that are high in protein and natural fat, which will give you the feeling that you are satisfied and will take away your hunger. Read the labels, educate yourself about what you eat.
