How to lose weight without starving 

Snacking an enemy of the diet to lose weight

One of the enemies of any diet to lose weight is “snacking”, everything that is eaten every day and that represents many extra calories that do not allow you to lose weight quickly and in a healthy way.

If you write down all the extras that are eaten daily, the surprise will be great because the daily snack is of great magnitude and represents a large number of extra calories that, if avoided, will allow you to lose weight more quickly.

Bet on the natural

Fruits, legumes, vegetables, cereals, nuts, etc., are “natural foods” whose combination allows to prepare varied and tasty dishes. All of them are excellent for following a healthy and balanced diet that allows you to lose weight without starving.

Ideally, eat 4-5 meals a day of the same caloric content, including two cups of vegetables, three pieces of fruit, and several servings of beans, whole grain cereals, and potatoes on the daily menu.

Avoid fasts

Not stopping eating is essential to lose weight, the ideal is to eat five daily meals of the same caloric content each (between 300-400 calories). With this, it is possible to always have a full and working stomach, accelerating the metabolism and with a significant reduction in appetite.

Use smaller plates

This is an infallible trick to lose weight, eat tasty and not starve. This is so because when the plate is well full, the brain is tricked into sending a signal of satiety much earlier.

Drink cold water

There is research that links weight loss with water consumption, since drinking water before each meal helps you feel full. In fact, many expert nutritionists recommend drinking two large glasses of water before each meal, a healthy habit that allows you to feel fuller and reduce the calories you ultimately consume.

Avoid common mistakes when designing the daily menu

One of the most common mistakes when designing the daily menu is to restrict the amount of food, since hunger arises with great intensity and you return to old habits.

Another mistake is avoiding certain foods because they are considered too high in calories. In fact, a good and balanced diet must include foods from all nutritional groups and even while on a diet it is not advisable to stop eating certain foods.

Avoid anxiety

If you want to lose weight but feel hungry at all times, it is important to order food intakes throughout the day, making between 4 and 5 meals a day, which can be adapted to the rhythm of each one if you prefer to take more intermediate meals.

Finally, it should always be remembered that losing weight without starving is possible and attitude is essential, as shown by many studies that affirm that people who eat everything but in moderate amounts, at an adequate pace and savoring each bite not only lose weight but also they stay in shape more easily.
