Slimming: Natural Remedies Tips to Lose Weight Permanently
In the process of losing weight, it is better to be accompanied so as not to endanger your health and to obtain tangible and lasting results. Leslie Lott, physiotherapist and reflexologist, gives us his advice.
The benefit of physical therapy? It allows for complete follow-up and uses alternative medicine to offer complementary natural solutions that work in synergy. For physical therapy, a dual approach that is nutritional and behavioral is necessary if you want to lose weight without regaining the pounds you lost afterwards.
Step 1: You have a good reason to lose weight
Before embarking on any weight loss process, it should be seen as a benefit and therefore a motivator. So it is best to think about it in the early stages, and if the benefits are less than the effort to be made, you will have to ask yourself what the potential obstacles are.
Psychological follow-up, but also pseudoscience or hypnosis would be ideal here to find obstructions. Losing weight and then maintaining weight can sometimes involve a complete lifestyle change. The latter should be accompanied, to allow the patient to understand the origin of his excess weight.
Studies prove that to lose weight permanently, it will take 3 years of follow-up and 3 years of weight maintenance to consider winning the battle. Thus, the accompaniment in alternative medicine to adopting good habits and maintaining one's motivation will be closely linked to the success of a weight loss project. Whether it is a naturopath, a traditional Chinese medicine or Ayurvedic practitioner, a safflower specialist, a trainer, a reflexologist or a hypnotherapist, the therapist will still be a companion in this change, but it is up to you once you get home.
Step Two: Take the Right Nutritional Approach
In the process of losing weight, we will talk about restoring a balanced diet and not dieting. Objective: To review nutrition as a whole based on intake based on physical activity.
Eat enough protein (both animal and vegetable) to maintain muscle mass.
Ensure that there is no neurotransmitter deficiency. For example, if you are stressed, you will have to start by raising your dopamine level, or again, if there is a certain sugar craving, there may be a serotonin deficiency and you can then use plants to rebalance the deficiency. .
Make sure that there are no specific disorders at the level of the intestine.
Once these points are checked, we can then begin to rebalance our diet. Basic rules for knowing how to lose weight absolutely:
Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables
Add good vegetable oils to your diet (rapeseed, walnut, hemp, camelina, flax, etc.)
Consume at least once a week small fatty fish, low in heavy metals and rich in omega-3 (sardines, anchovies, mackerel, herring, etc.)
Avoid refined foods (white bread, white pasta, foods high in sugar, etc.) in favor of semi- or whole grains (buckwheat seeds, oats, quinoa, spelt, corn, barley, rye, etc.)
Eat at least 2 to 3 legumes per week to get B vitamins (lentils, chickpeas, peas, broad beans, dried beans, kidney beans, etc.).
Another reflex to adopt: ensuring a good distribution of intake throughout the day. To allow the body to utilize its fat reserves, choose either a sugar-free breakfast or dinner. A sugar-free breakfast could consist of an avocado with two slices of ham or a handful of oilseeds with avocado and cheese. During the midday meal, we provide animal proteins if we eat them, such as meat with a portion of vegetables and a little grain. Dessert is optional, but if you are a lover of sweets, then you should choose fruit or compote without added sugar.
The snack is not intended for children, the adult brain also needs regular contributions to maintain energy and focus, and the snack allows you to reduce appetite in the evening. You can choose a fruit or sugar-free compote or a homemade pie with white sheep cheese, goat cheese and oilseeds, sesame or almond cream to spread on the flowerbread, the options are endless! Finally, in the evening, it is better to prefer raw vegetables and vegetables, cooked with little grain or small amounts of legumes.
Step 3: Include physical activity in your habits
Moving (again) is just as interesting to lose weight as it is to maintain your healthy capital. To stay motivated, we choose an activity we like and regularly supply the body with oxygen. Another simple and effective idea: Use a pedometer or a dedicated app to get an idea of how many steps you take each day (bearing that the average should be 7,500 steps).
If you do not have the opportunity to move during the day, you can do 30 minutes of active walking 3 times a week. An active walk is a walk during which you can talk without panting. By maintaining a pace that matches your own pace, you will increase your ability to work faster as your energy consumption increases.
