My normal weight has always been around 75 kg, nevertheless, some years ago I was 90 kg, I didn’t even notice immediately how bigger I became, but the scale, and the buttons flying off my shirt, made me understand the ‘size’ of my problem.
Travel, time and experience profoundly shaped my lifestyle, above all, these factors, made me become a: Supermarket vegan, Restaurants vegetarian, Omnivorous in emergencies.
I want to share with you a really effective diet to lose weight, be healthier, energetic, and cruelty-free.
This diet is diet it’s totally different than any other diet because it’s based on self regulation and it has different levels of freedom.
I am following this pattern since years and I have checked yearly my blood nourishment values to monitor any irregularities, my doctor always complimented me for my excellent values.
Fruit salad with squeezed lemon
Fresh made juice–or–let pieces of fruit soak in a carafe with water and lemon, keep the pulp in the juice.
Rice (risotto, paella, etc) or Pasta. Better rice!
Evening (before 18.00)
Don’t eat after 19.00, you will sleep better, waking up strong and energetic
Eat fruit peels
Eat local food and buy from family shops:
This is not just ethical, sustainable and good for the health, but is often cheaper.
You may want to adopt a generic weekly schedule with a day of fasting:
Mon-Fri – Mostly vegan
Saturday – Just fruit
Sunday – fasting
In general you should always avoid: fried food, salt, sugar, and sweets, except dark chocolate.
If you can’t manage to fast once a week, make sure to fast once a month.
After years on this kind of diet I feel much better and following this scheme gives me a routine, even if I do exceptions.
Eating just once a day (breakfast, brunch or lunch)
I have used sometimes the pattern of having just a big meal once a day, a kind of brunch, mostly for practical reasons, it didn’t make me feel bad, I was just quite slow for about half hour after having eaten, but in later in the day all was perfect.
You have to pay attention primarily to one thing: the glucose levels go down after four hours (or more) that you have eaten, the body may need it and this cloud make you feel a bit weak or in the long run, if you don’t have body fat, you could start to burn out your muscles instead.
