The holiday season is filled with outings, some planned in advance, others at the last minute. When the invitations arrive at the last minute and the time to prepare is not part of the plans, we must go out the big game ... But to the surprise, the clothes of the wardrobe are no longer suitable to the extra pounds! Do not panic, today we offer tips for losing a few pounds at the last minute.

Although it is completely possible to lose weight in a week, but hey it's not always beneficial for health! Rapid weight loss causes damage to the body: nutritional deficiencies, damage to muscle mass, fatigue, depression in addition to the yoyo effect that this type of diet can cause because the recovery of pounds can be more important.

So lose 8 to 10 pounds in a week? No, but yes in one month. The goal of reasonable and safe weight loss is 1 to 2 pounds a week.

Here are some tips for losing a few pounds at the last minute:

A lot of research has shown that a low carb diet is a very effective way to lose weight and improve health. So limit your intake of complex carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, rice and cereals. When you reduce carbohydrates in your diet, you temporarily train your body to access stored carbohydrates called glycogen and burn them while eliminating excess stored liquids.

For example, replace the lack of carbohydrates with breakfast eggs, keep a single slice of bread from your sandwich, or eat protein such as turkey slices, low-fat cheese, seeds, and nuts.

Reduce calories

Change your eating habits and promote low-calorie dishes. Banish snacks and just eat main meals, do not drink calories including soft and sugary drinks, fill your plate of vegetables and opt for water, tea or coffee without sugar. For protein, choose low fat ones like chicken and fish.

Consume the good starches

Most foods rich in starches, including potatoes, corn, pasta and wheat, produce gas that breaks down in the large intestine, and can cause bloating. Rice is the only starch that does not cause gas and for more fiber favor brown rice.

Papaya snack

Have a bowl full of ripe papaya as a snack, add a hint of freshly squeezed lemon juice and enjoy. Papaya is a low-calorie fruit that keeps your stomach full for longer. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and dietary fiber that prevents cholesterol, regulates the stress hormone and promotes flat stomach.

Gourd and lemon juice

The gourd, also known as the calabash, is a low calorie food because it contains about 14 calories per 100 g of serving, it is also rich in antioxidants. For a flat stomach, take a daily glass of gourd juice for breakfast and for more effective results, add 2 tablespoons lemon juice and a pinch of pepper and black salt. This juice detoxifies the body, improves digestive health and metabolism, promotes weight loss, reduces bad cholesterol and unwanted fat and treats obesity.

Remember to drink at least 2 liters of water a day and exercise regularly.

Caution:

Although gourd juice is a healthy beverage, there are cautions for:

Pregnant women :

Pregnant women should avoid drinking too much bitter gourd juice because it has properties that stimulate the uterus, which can lead to premature birth pains.

Diabetics:

Considered an ideal remedy for diabetes, this drink should however be consumed under the guidance of the attending physician to avoid any interaction with hypoglycemic drugs.
