Weight Loss: The Top 10 Mistakes

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

1: WANTING TO LOSE WEIGHT WHEN NOT OVERWEIGHT

Do not let yourself be manipulated 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 displays harmony, nothing is used to fight and starve to lose A few extra pounds. All the more so as you will disturb your body and its natural regulation. The solution to defeat these little pounds: “Move more to muscle,” explains Véronique Liègois, dietician-nutritionist.

2: MAKING EXPRESS SCHEMES

To lose weight fast and resume it as fast, nothing like express diets without stabilization phase. “Express schemes are often unbalanced and too restrictive. You lose weight quickly, but you take more, or more in the following weeks, “explains Véronique Liègois. To avoid. It reduces its consumption, avoids snacking and gets into sports.

3: MAKE A PERPETUAL DIET

After a rebalancing of food, the weight of your body has stabilized. So you do not need to put it on a perpetual diet and starve you. The risk ? By deregulating your metabolism, you will lose all the efforts obtained by your first regime and its stabilization phase.

4: MAKE AN ULTRA-RESTRICTIVE DIET

No sugar, no salt, no fats, no starches … Restrictive diets lose weight but above all promote a rapid recovery of the lost weight. Too frustrating, these diets push to excess. “Go for food rebalancing close to your habits. A varied diet including all the foods you like, at a reasonable dose. This is an effective guarantee in the long term “recalls Véronique Liègois.

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

Under no circumstances should your neighbor’s diet, or that of your girlfriend, and especially that of your man, be copied. Although it is quite motivating and practical to start a couple diet, one does not forget that the male sex has a different metabolism, higher than that of the woman. Men naturally eliminate more calories to run their bodies. In addition, they are only 10 to 15% fat mass whereas women carry 25%. They lose weight 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 objective that corresponds to its morphology and its body and a reasoned objective, Which is more linked to his motivation and temperament and does not compare. “Each metabolism is unique and it works in its own way,” explains Véronique Liègois.

6: MODIFY YOUR DIET

To lose and stabilize your weight, do not follow a diet that alters your eating habits too much. “Personal habits come back very quickly,” recalls Véronique Liègois. “The long-term results can only be achieved by laying down your dietary habits and modifying them as little as possible.” This does not prevent us from trying new good reflexes.

7: EAT DIFFERENTLY THAN YOUR SPOUSE AND FAMILY

A healthy and balanced diet is suitable for the whole family even if it is not on a diet. To lose weight, do not focus on ultra-light dishes and live in frustration.

You have to eat less and learn to compensate for discrepancies due to an invitation. At the table with your family, do not eat bread, do not refrain and just yogurt and fruit for dessert.

8: DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

Drinking water never made you lose weight. It is therefore not recommended to drink more than reason. Especially if you have problems with water retention, you will tend to get fat.

“For drink as for other foods, the secret is the right dose. The water requirement is between 1 liter and 1.5 liters per day “reminds Véronique Liègois.

9: MAKING A FAST TO LOSE WEIGHT

Fasting can help detoxify the body but has never made you lose weight. “A 24-hour fast can be considered as a step to start a dietary change, but not as a starter of slimming,” explains Véronique Liègois.

10: ALTERNATING DRACONIAN DIET AND EXCESS FOOD

Restrict, crack, and then regain control generate stress on the body. The more you starve your body, the more it stores in anticipation of a next restriction. And the more you risk ultimately gaining weight.

“The restriction necessarily generates compensation. Opt for a less frustrating diet on a daily basis, excesses and compulsions will gradually disappear on their own “concludes Véronique Liègois.
