Weight loss diets fast

Overly drastic weight loss diets all present a risk of dietary deficiencies. In order to lose weight peacefully, you should rather rely on meals that are both tasty and perfectly balanced…

Cooking well-balanced slimming meals is not very complicated. Above all, it is necessary to make sure that you eat a sufficiently diversified diet so that you don’t suffer from any dietary deficiencies: this means using products from each food group every day (meat and assimilated products, fruit and vegetables, dairy products, starchy foods). It is also important to avoid consuming too much fat, sugar and salt: the simplest thing to do is to favour home-made dishes as much as possible because ready-made commercial preparations are often too rich in sugar, fat and salt. It is also important to cook without fat (e.g. steaming) and to use aromatic herbs to spice up the dishes rather than salt (too much salt promotes high blood pressure and water retention).

Breakfast

  • Number 1

Breakfast is often neglected, but it’s a very important meal: it’s what allows you to recharge your batteries after a good night’s rest. On the menu: tea or coffee (without sugar), fresh fruit for vitamins and minerals (e.g. pear, apple), two rusks for fibre and 0% plain yoghurt, a source of calcium.

  • Number 2

A good homemade smoothie (e.g. milk, apple, banana, pear) provides both calcium and vitamins to the body. A bowl of cereal is also included, but check the label on the product. Ideally, breakfast cereals should contain very little sugar and fat, but lots of fibre (at least 5 g of fibre per 100 g). An unsweetened hot beverage (e.g., tea, coffee) can round out this menu.

Choice of balanced slimming breakfast

  • Number 1

For a well-balanced slimming breakfast, we serve raw vegetables as a starter, such as grated carrots. As a main course, a chicken breast cooked in foil with its small vegetables (potatoes and green beans): chicken is a very interesting source of animal protein as part of a diet because this meat is low in fat (as long as the chicken is eaten without the skin). Moreover, by cooking it in papillotes, you don’t have to add fat! We end this meal with a portion of low-calorie cheese and a homemade fruit salad.

  • Number 2

For the appetizer, half a grapefruit does the trick. As a main course, a grilled salmon steak accompanied by brown rice and green beans won’t hurt our figure. For dessert, a little 0% Fromage blanc is a must.

Balanced slimming dinner of your choice

  • Number 1

We start with grilled shrimps with garlic as a starter, then we continue with a hot potato and carrot soup with grated cheese. For dessert, you can have a homemade fruit compote.

  • Number 2

As a starter, you can prepare a good tomato and courgette carpaccio with a drizzle of olive oil, a little garlic, a few basil leaves and pieces of feta cheese. As a main course, a veal escalope (lean meat) accompanied by pasta (without sauce or possibly with a homemade tomato sauce). For dessert, fresh fruit of the season can be served.
