So as you all know, I have been on a diet for 3 weeks now. I ain’t no nutricionist, but I used to be very well guided when I was back in Brazil, and had a personal trainer. So I am trying to follow the guidance, but considering that I am not exercising and not focusing on muscle mass right now.
The goal is to drop the amount of calories ingested per day, without missing out meals or nutrients. I try to stay bellow the 1000 calories. The funny part is that I gained weight by eating twice or thrice a day! And now I am losing while eating 4 to 5 times a day. This is because I am speeding up my metabolism by eating the right foods at the right time.
I also, twice a week, fast for 16 hours. This is called intermittent fasting. That means that the days I am fasting, I can eat normally for 8 hours and fast the other 16. Water, tea and coffee (with no sugar) is allowed during the fasting. This technique helps boosting the metabolism and regenerating body cells. I can make a special post about intermittent fasting and talk more about what I know if you guys are interested.
So today I just want to give some examples of what I have been having for meals and snacks!! I want to show you guys that dieting shouldn’t be boring or full of bad tasting meals 😂😂😂
For drinks I usually have water, hot tea or organic 100% fuit juices with no addes sugar or conservants. For desserts I sometimes have low calorie fuits, such as papaya, cherries, strawberries, berries, figs, peaches, apples…
Just remember that this is just an inspiration and a report of how I have been keeping up with the diet I put myself in. I am not a nutricionist nor a personal trainer. Please go to a doctor before you decide any major changes in your body.
Stay healthy guys… And we can do it!! 😄😄😄 So let me know: which low calorie food was your favorite?? They are all so yummy to me!!
