The process of losing weight is quite long and not very simple. And in order to lose weight faster, we must remember that food should not be chosen any, but only healthy. And it is also very important to combine products correctly.
Effective weight loss: how to combine products?
To quickly assimilate food, you need to pay attention to how you combine products. This is especially important when losing weight. Love to eat cutlet and fried potatoes? Love hearty salads with meat, eggs and cheese? These are all examples of the wrong combination.
So, protein foods are fish, meat, seafood, eggs. They go well with vegetables (and only with green and non-starchy ones), as well as with some sour berries and fruits. But it is better not to combine protein products with bread and potatoes. For example, a great combination – fish cakes with greens; or baked chicken with stewed carrots and cauliflower. Here's an example of a bad mix: potatoes and pork chop.
Legumes, cereals and bread go well with various vegetables, any greens. Therefore, stewed cauliflower with carrots and boiled beans will be a great example; or soup with pumpkin, carrots and chickpeas; or a sandwich with tomato, pepper and herbs.
Fruits and berries are combined with some vegetables, cheese, nuts, seeds, cottage cheese, yogurt. You can add them to meat or fish, but not all, but only sour and sweet and sour. The choice is very large. Here are the options for losing weight – smoothies with apples, spinach, oranges and seeds; or a dessert of berries, cottage cheese, yogurt and nuts; or baked meat with cranberry sauce.
Starchy and non-starchy vegetables are combined with meat, fish, eggs, cheese, cottage cheese. You can also combine vegetables with some fruits and berries (for example, in smoothies or salads).
Weight loss will be effective if you choose such combinations: meat (fish) and vegetables; or cereals with vegetables; or fruit with cheese; or berries with cottage cheese. That is a lot of options.
