ALMOST GAINED1. Calculate portions by eye
At first, you calculate calories daily, and by the end of the week it seems to you that you have understood everything and can make up a diet by eye. This is where the problems and the collapse of the entire diet begin. It is enough to make a mistake just a couple of times to overeat.
2. Don't watch the ingredients in the restaurant
If you are on a diet, you don't have to limit yourself to going to restaurants and cafes. The main thing is to learn to say no. Coffee with syrup for you? Not. Add Mayo? No, bring the entire salad dressing separately. Ketchup for potatoes? Not. A short but magical word that will help you stay on top of your diet while enjoying a meal from the chef.
3. Drink sugary drinks
There is nothing useful in juices, soda and fruit drinks, but there are plenty of calories. They do not bring satiety, but they trigger the processes in the body that are usually triggered by eating. And juice is not food, it is solid sugar.
4. Eat vegetables and fruits
There is nothing wrong with fruits and vegetables on their own if you factor them into your daily calories. There are them just like that, because they "cannot harm" - it is wrong. They are also high in calories.
5. Eating up for family members
They finished eating for the child, stole a piece from the husband's plate and now the sides are returning. Remember that you have a clear meal plan for the day and do not deviate from it even a little.
6. Lick the spoon when you cook
Cooks do it, housewives do it, everyone does it. Tasting food while cooking is common. Another question is that if you seriously decided to lose weight, then you will have to give up this habit.
7. Cook in oil
If you are cooking with butter, don't think of it as a cooking method - those are calories too. Be sure to measure out your prescription oil and record it in your food diary. Hidden fats are in everything.
8. Snack on nuts, seeds and dried fruits
Many do not consider these products as food and eat them without measure, but in vain. Nuts and dried fruits are also full of calories. Yes, it's healthy, but still high in calories. Try to limit yourself: while measuring the permissible calories for the day, take with you exactly as many nuts for a snack as the diet allows.
9. Overuse coffee
There is nothing wrong with coffee, it's all about the additives. Pumpkin lattes and caramel macchiato three times a day are evil. Milk, syrups, chocolate - these products must be monitored and taken into account in the diet.
10. Eat honey on an empty stomach
A spoonful of honey and a glass of water in the morning on an empty stomach. Sound familiar? This approach not only harms your diet (sugar in the morning - no), but also harms the pancreas. Don't eat honey on an empty stomach.
