Let’s start with me saying that I’m not the one that goes on diets or the one that keeps them. I’ll usually try it once, try to stick to a diet plan but it lasts for 2 and a half days. What can I say, I’m not the responsible one in that field (mindnight snacks bring way too much joy). But something changed one day about a month and a half ago. I decided to go on a diet that fits my usual eating habits and I managed to keep that diet for just a week. This sounds weird, I know. Why am I even writing about keeping a diet when I’m the one who couldn’t go through with it for more than a week? But the thing is, I lost 6 kilos (which is about 14 pounds) in that week and didn’t gain them back for more than a month now. Not only did I lose weight, I feel better, healthier and happier.
So if you’re planing on going on a diet, do try this eating plan and I hope you’ll get the results I got.
Note: I ate only salad for dinner, no salamon or meat other than white turkey, only almonds for snacks and nothing for dessert.
Note 2: I did not exercise, just try to move and walk wherever you can.
Note 3: Eat whatever salad you want. These seasonal salads taste great and why not eat them when you can.
Note 4: Drink as much green tea as you can. Before sleep was my choice.
LUNCH: Consume a low-calorie, high-energy lunch of either 4 oz. of grilled chicken breast with 1 cup of chopped cucumbers and tomatoes, two hard-boiled eggs with celery and carrot sticks, or 4 oz. of lean turkey with carrots and cherry tomatoes.
DINNER: Eat a balanced dinner, choosing one of the following options: 5 to 8 oz. of grilled flank steak with chopped salad, 6 oz. of grilled chicken with 1 cup of steamed spinach, or 5 oz. of grilled salmon with 1 cup of steamed spinach.
SNACKS: Eat two snacks each day. Snacks can include 1 cup of mixed berries, a 5-oz. serving of sugar-free gelatin, 20 almonds, or 1 cup of avocado sliced and served with lemon and a small pinch of salt.
