And here are the rules that Michel has come up with:

  • Eat regularly

During sleep, your metabolism slows down, and it cheers up just in time for the morning charging.

A healthy breakfast will protect you from deals with your conscience that always harmful your shape:

“If I do not eat in the morning, grab an apple during the day, then I can certainly afford anything when I get back home from work”.

Eat Regularly

Eat rights foods

Namely, those that help you speed up the metabolism. It is well known:

  • The more energy you spend for food digestion, the less kilograms sticks to your body.

So, everything is simple. Fast carbohydrates are digested in minutes and then deposited in your fat storage areas. On the contrary, processing of proteins, whole grains, vegetables and unsweetened fruit (last should be consumed in limited quantities) can make your body sweat.

Eat Rights Foods

Drink water

The life-giving fluid not only reduces appetite, it is very important for an effective operation of the liver and kidneys, which are responsible for processing and excreting waste products that generate when we lose weight.

So it is in your best interest to moisturize these organs properly. 

Not feeling thirsty? Then you will slow down the entire process.

We would also like to add that it is important to drink water wisely. Drink water half an hour before meals and one hour after.

Thus, you will stimulate the release of the endogenous fluid from the body fat. Try to drink less after six in the evening.

Drink Water

Combine strength and cardio workouts

Aerobic exercises burn more calories per session – it’s a fact. Yet the strength trainings give you an interesting effect.

You’ve finished exercising, you are sitting at work and are drawing reporting, and you still continue to burn calories. 

And this continues 3 to 16 hours. So, as you see, one type of exercises will not help you achieve your final weight loss goal.

You’re probably surprised that we keep on offering you to indulge your stomach with quinoa, while the world is filled with so many useful cereals. Well, here is our motivation.

Quinoa contains:

  • a unique set of amino acids,
  • fats with a high content of lecithin acid,
  • abundance of vitamins (including rare riboflavin),
  • calcium,
  • zinc,
  • phosphorus,
  • iron,
  • selenium (a powerful antioxidant),
  • proteins (more than any other cereals – from 16% to 20%).

We do agree that quinoa has indisputable charms, still we should note that the oatmeal, soy and flax are also generally just as good. So, you can alternate grits, if you wish.
