6 Common Mistakes That Can Stop Weight Loss


If we want to lose weight, we plan our meals,
start doing exercises and, little by little, the scale and the mirror start showing the
results. However, we miss some details that seem simple,
yet make a lot of difference in the process. Find out the 6 things you need to stop doing
during meals to actually lose weight: Eating only soup
People who want to lose weight usually believe that only a plate of soup is enough. But this is an awful idea. It’s fundamental to eat well and ingest important
nutrients to your body. Many times, when we eat only soup, our body
doesn’t feel satiated, which makes us crave unhealthy things. In other words, you can start with a soup,
and then have the main course. This way, you will feel less hungry, and put
less food on your plate. Using sauces
Did you know that adding sauce on your meals increases the amount of fat ingested? Use the bare minimum of sauces and condiments. If you want to, use only olive oil or vinegar
on your dishes. The trick is to season your food well, which
will make it easier to avoid sauces. Drinking while eating
Certainly, you have heard this: drinking during meals will dilate your stomach, causing bloating. This dilation will reduce the feeling of satiation,
and will make you want to eat more in the next hours. If you like to drink after meals, remember
that water is always the best option, since it hydrates, boosts the metabolism and helps
the intestine function, besides not having calories. Eating fast
You probably have already heard that eating too fast makes the digestion harder. The trick here is to put down your cutlery
in between bites and to chew each portion of food 7 to 10 times. It will make you feel more satiated and you
will eat less. Not choosing the right foods
The protein present in fish, eggs and cheese, as well as that in legumes like soy and beans
is easier to digest and is lighter after meals. In addition, these proteins are less caloric. Therefore, choose foods that are easier to
digest. Not eating enough fiber
Fiber is truly great to regulate intestinal transit, digestive process and nutrient assimilation. It also helps eliminate toxins and keep us
satiated for more time. You should opt for fresh vegetables and fruits,
whole-meal bread, rice and pasta, legumes, seeds and nuts. Now tell us, which of these mistakes you make? They are easy to correct and, believe it or
not, will make all the difference on your scale (and in your health).
