1: Do not come on a visit to the hungry
Are you afraid to gain weight for the holidays with their sumptuous feasts? Do you worry with anxiety about how you will burn thousands of unnecessary calories that caring relatives and friends will shove in you? FitSeven will talk about how not to grow fat at the New Year's table.
The main advice that allows not to overeat at a party is simple - eat something nutritious in advance. The ideal solution will be a vegetable salad, however even a buttered toast and a portion of a protein shake will help to quench hunger better than a double serving of olivier.
2: Eat from your plate
Avoid snacks that you can eat with your hands - a small tartlet with pie or cheese contains at least 100 kcal. Before enjoying such snacks, transfer them to your plate - but try to take only necessary, and do not report after.
Buffet or buffet always makes you pass because it does not allow you to control the size of the portions you eat. Considering that saturation comes in 15-20 minutes after the start of eating, you will have time to send in your mouth three times more calories than you should.
3: Do not leave the plate empty
One of the rules of good taste is to monitor guests' plates and report the supplement if necessary. That's why it's important that your plate never remain empty - otherwise you will immediately get an extra portion and one more unnecessary 500 calories.
Make sure that there are always more vegetables and different low-fat side dishes( buckwheat or even potatoes) on your plate, not meat, cheese or gravy. Do not try to eat the "most delicious piece" - believe me, you still will not go home hungry.
4: Avoid the "liquid calories" of
In addition to the fact that a glass of juice, mors or sweet soda can contain up to 200 kcal., Sugar in its composition will increase the secretion of insulin, which will facilitate the dispatch of excess calories to fat stores. Try to drink only water, preferring warm and non-carbonated at the same time.
The fall of insulin, following after its splash, will provoke a sense of "false hunger" and will force you to eat one more unnecessary portion of food. It is for this reason that it is also worth giving up candy and other small sweets consumed during the main meal.
5: Restrict with dry wine
Try to drink alcohol that contains less sugar. Sweet liqueurs, wines and champagne by definition contain more sugar and calories. It is also important that the body digests the calories of alcoholic beverages in the first place, only then proceeding to the calories of ordinary food.
Among other things, alcohol has a strong effect on the formation of saturation processes and does not let you know that it's time to stop eating. The ideal solution will be drinking alcohol only after the main meal and on a full stomach.
6: Discard the dessert
. No matter how tempting the dessert served at the end of the festive feast seemed, try to avoid it by all means. In extreme cases, choose a fruit salad or even ice cream - a chocolate cake with whipped cream contains at least 700 calories per serving.
If the mistress of the evening does not accept the refusal and persistently forces her to try her cake according to a special recipe - agree, aggressively rummage in a piece of false cake and praise her culinary talents. And when the landlady turns away, leave unnecessary 700 calories aside.
7: Do not go to bed immediately after eating
The final rule is that it is extremely important not to go to bed immediately after eating a full stomach. Try to give the body at least 2-3 hours for digestion and assimilation of food - take a shower, do a small house cleaning, watch TV.
Sleep with a full stomach is harmful. First, it increases the percentage of calories stored in fat stores. Secondly, it disturbs the quality of sleep, making it restless and intermittent. Third, the wrong posture during sleep creates unnecessary pressure on the internal organs.
The most important rules that allow not to overeat at the New Year's table are refusal of sweet drinks and desserts, food exclusively from your plate, as well as a preference for vegetables and various side dishes rather than fatty meat and mayonnaise salads.
