Weight loss: the top 6 mistakes not to commit

Weight loss: the top 6 mistakes not to commit

So that the desire to lose weight does not become an obsession and that your efforts are rewarded, discover the advice and recommendations of Véronique Liègois, dietician and nutritionist.

1: WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT WHEN YOU ARE NOT OVERWEIGHT

Do not be fooled by the perfect image of the ideal girl who must fit in a size 32. If your weight is stable without depriving you and your body shows harmony, there is no point in fighting and starving to lose a few extra pounds. Especially since you will disturb your body and its natural regulation. The solution to overcome these little pounds: “Move more to muscle,” says Véronique Liègois, dietician-nutritionist.

2: MAKE EXPRESS DIETS

To lose weight quickly and resume it quickly, nothing like express diets without stabilization phase. “The express schemes are most often unbalanced and too restrictive. You lose weight quickly, but you pick up as much, or more in the following weeks “explains Véronique Liègois. To avoid. We reduce our consumption, we avoid nibbling and we start sports.

3: MAKE A PERPETUAL DIET

After a rebalancing food, the weight of your body has stabilized. No need to put him on the perpetual diet and starve you. The risk ? By disrupting your metabolism, you will lose all the efforts of your first diet and its stabilization phase.

4: MAKE AN ULTRA RESTRICTIVE DIET

No sugar, no salt, no fat, no starchy foods … Restrictive diets make you lose weight, but most of all, help you to regain weight quickly. Too frustrating, these diets push to excesses. “Go for food rebalancing close to your habits. A varied diet and including all the foods you like, in reasonable dosage. This is an effective guarantee over the long term “recalls Véronique Liègois.

5: WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT AS FAST AS YOUR FRIEND AND YOUR JULES

It should not in any way copy the diet of your neighbor, or that of your girlfriend and especially not that of your man. Although it is quite motivating and practical to start a couple diet, we do not forget that men have a different metabolism, higher than that of women. Men naturally eliminate more calories to make their body work. In addition, they consist of only 10 to 15% fat mass while women carry 25%. They lose weight so much faster! The motivation of the beginning may diminish if you realize that your efforts are not as paying as those of your Jules. It is necessary to set a reasonable goal that corresponds to its morphology and its body and a reasoned objective, which is more related to his motivation and his temperament and we do not compare. “Every metabolism is unique and it works in its own way,” explains Véronique Liègois.

6: CHANGE YOUR DIET

To lose and stabilize your weight, do not follow a diet that changes your eating habits too much. “Personal habits come back very quickly,” says Véronique Liègois. “Long-term results can only be achieved by putting your dietary habits in perspective and modifying them as little as possible”. This does not prevent to try to take new good reflexes.
