You don’t eat much, you even started eating smaller meals, you try to have healthy meals and drink a lot f water, and yet, there are still no results on the improvement of your figure? We have a question for you: Do you, by any chance, take small snack between those healthy meals you have?
If so, then do those snacks consist of a small bag of chips, candies, baked almonds, fried corn, doughnut, or similar to these? If the answer is still yes, then we’ve come to the bottom of your problem. Don’t panic, you’re not the only one. This is the most common mistake people do when it comes to nutrition. The thing is, you can absolutely do without those meals or snacks, instead, you need to replace those with healthier food. Most of those industrial products contain sugars, fats, salts, flavor boosters and additives which your body doesn’t need at all.
So instead of a bag of chips, you can peel a few carrots and cut them into thin slices. This way you can carry them wherever you’re going and take a few bites whenever you feel hungry. Try them with sour cream instead of mayonnaise. You can add oregano,sweet basil or powdered chilly to the sour cream as an additional flavor booster.
A small salad is always a good snack, try using olive oil and low-fat cheese with it. You can definitely eat as much fruits as you want to, whether they are fresh of dried.
Walnuts, almonds and nuts are a good idea, but remember, eat them raw. The toasted ones have too much salt and there are no nutritious benefits from them.
If you have a need for sweet snacks, then try using honey instead of chocolate or sugar addition.
Don’t drink artificial juices. Try drinking more water or if you’re not much into the water, prepare your own fruit juice: squeeze a lemon or an orange (you can even combine both) in a bottle of water, add honey it it’s too sour for you, and enjoy this refreshing drink all day long.
