Solomatina nutritionist warned against sudden weight loss after the May holidays
Sharp weight loss can put the body in a state of stress, as a result of which the kilograms will disappear much more slowly, and excess weight will subsequently accumulate much faster than before. It will be more difficult to regain the previous weight with such a system, nutritionist Elena Solomatina warned in a conversation with Lenta.ru.
The temptation to go on a hunger strike and lose all those extra kilos in a couple of days, according to the specialist, is not worth giving in: in the future, this will only exacerbate the problem and make the process of losing weight more laborious. . The best option would be to avoid foods with a high glycemic index and gradually reduce the caloric content of the diet.
“First of all, you need to understand that the May holidays are quite short, so the weight gain here is due more to fluid retention and not the accumulation of adipose tissue,” Solomatina said. – Therefore, if your problem is related to this, it is better to simply switch to normal frequent meals, eliminate salt and return to your usual diet. You can also do a fast day if your goal is to lose a pound or two.
Many, after the “booting” days of May, as the nutritionist noted, experience discomfort, the intestines have not yet had time to get rid of kebabs, because the meat is digested for a long time. Especially when combined with other high-calorie foods. That is why fasting days perfectly help to get rid of everything superfluous and unnecessary.
get rid of fat
“In general, there are no particular problems with the fall of the results of the May holidays, the danger lurks where people want to lose weight by getting rid of adipose tissue. For many, this process goes well at first, especially if the body is not frightened by diets, but then the problems begin. The body perceives a sharp removal of excess weight as an extremely stressful situation similar to war. He is afraid that the intake of calories may stop completely, so he begins to transfer everything that goes into fat: he needs to create reserves to ensure breathing, the functioning of the heart, everything else is an unaffordable luxury, ”Solomatina explained. .
As a result, the more often a person organizes loading and unloading days, tries to lose weight quickly, sharply reduces the calorie content, the more actively the body begins to restore weight. And it doesn’t make it nearly as aesthetically pleasing as it used to be.
“If it happens that a person has rounded, but pleasant and harmonious forms, then after such stresses the body simply begins to store everything superfluous anywhere. So, every quick weight loss, of course, brings results, but over time it will be less and less. And the weight gain will be more and more”, summarized the specialist.
The best way to lose weight, according to her, will be, first of all, the rejection of simple sugars, sweets, cakes, white flour, whole grains, foods with a high glycemic index. After that, she can reduce the calorie content of her usual diet by about 15 percent, so as not to scare the body with sudden changes, and increase physical activity.
