You can make the juiciest sandwich by smearing the bread with a ripe tomato and putting a dessert spoon of virgin olive oil. Add a single layer of content, just enough to cover the surface of the bread.

Plate method instructions

Sweeteners

  • Liquid or powdered stevia
  • Agave syrup

White sugar increases your appetite!

Stevia and agave can change the taste of food a bit, but with some you will see that it “sticks” and enhances the flavor. Better to avoid saccharins and aspartame. White sugar is excluded, as well as those foods that contain it (sweets, gummies, chocolates, Modena vinegar, cookies …). Brown sugar only exceptionally.

Dairy products

  • Semi-skimmed cow’s milk
  • Oat milk
  • Soy milk
  • Sesame milk
  • Flax milk

As little as possible

You can substitute cow’s milk for vegetable milks that will also provide you with calcium and vitamin D. Yogurt or fermented milk should be unsweetened. The less cured cheeses the better because they have a lot of salt. No dairy or ice cream desserts.

Pan (dark or black)

Look for artisan, rustic and whole grain breads with seeds. Delete industrial bread and sliced ​​bread from your shopping list, even if it is whole wheat. Like sugar, bread belongs to the group of carbohydrates, but I thought it necessary to dedicate a separate section to them.

Carbohydrates (other than bread)

  • Wheat pasta
  • Integral rice
  • Potatoes with skin
  • Corn
  • Chickpeas, lentils, beans …

If you find it difficult to eat whole foods, a trick to start incorporating them into our diet is to mix them. For example, if you make yourself rice, make separately a little white rice and another brown rice and once boiled, mix them. During the week, try not to repeat, that is, if you ate spaghetti on Monday, you will try the rest of the week not to eat pasta again. Get used to eating boiled or roasted potatoes with their skins on. The amount is very easy to calculate. Only what will fit on a quarter of a flat plate already cooked.

Fruit

  • All

When I say a piece I mean an apple, an orange, a grapefruit, but if the fruit is smaller, like apricots or kiwi, it will be two or three pieces. Regarding the small fruits, strawberries, cherries, medlars, they will be the ones that fit in a medium cup. With the tropical pineapple, the watermelon and the melon it will be two or three slices. The fruit has to be fresh, not in syrup.

A powerful ally for your diet, fruit.

Oils, condiments and dressings

  • Virgin olive oil
  • Wine or apple cider vinegar
  • Lemon
  • All spices
  • Homemade Yogurt Rooms
  • Mustard
  • Lightweight®
  • Salt

Use virgin olive oil, at least three tablespoons a day and try not to overdo it. As healthy as it is, a tablespoon is 90 Kcal. It is better to substitute the vinegar for the lemon, but if it costs you, make it apple or wine. Modena vinegar contains sugar. Use spices to flavor your dishes. Hot spices boost metabolism! (Cayenne, ginger , paprika, pepper …) Avoid salt as much as possible. Do one day a week without any salt.

Nuts or dehydrated fruit

  • Everyone

A bunch

Those that fit with the hand closed and maximum once a day. Roasted or raw, not fried in oil or with sugar.

Avoid alcoholic beverages, nothing is healthier than a good glass of water

Drinks

  • Water
  • Infusions

Erase the alcohol!

Although many insist on attributing medicinal properties to it, no matter how socialized its consumption is, alcohol is toxic to our body. It slows down metabolism, behaves like a carbohydrate, inhibits thyroid activity, and causes fluid retention. In short, it does not help anything to lose weight. Regarding carbonated drinks, they contain a lot of salt and a lot of phosphorus, which causes fluid retention and loss of calcium. It is also wise to avoid exciting beverages such as coffee or black tea.

Protein

  • White meats: Chicken, turkey, pork loin, rabbit …
  • Red meat: Ox, cow, horse, wild boar …
  • White fish : Hake, cod, monkfish …
  • Blue fish: Tuna, sardine, salmon …
  • Seafood
  • Eggs

Only what will fit on a quarter flat plate or what will fit in the palm of your hand of a steak half a centimeter thick. Red meat only once a week. Try to eat more fish and less meat. One day a week minimum of blue fish. You should avoid smoked and salted. Seafood is vigilant, especially if you have uric acid. You can substitute two eggs for the meat or fish portion of a meal.

Meal preparation

  • Steamed
  • Baked
  • Grilled

No fried, breaded, battered or tempura. Neither canned food, with the exception of tuna in olive oil (once a week). The food you have to prepare it with fresh food. Avoid ready-made meals and foods with preservatives and colorings.

Schedule

The schedule that I have set is indicative. Each one adapts it according to their routines. The important thing is to eat every three hours to avoid voracious hunger and keep our metabolism very active.

Physical exercise

  • Walk an hour a day
  • Aerobic exercise at least one hour per week
  • Muscle exercise at least one hour per week
  • Stretches every day

Essential

Not only do we have to be in our weight, we also have to be in shape. Find a way to do these minimums or find a particular exercise that combines everything. Walk fast at any time, do not use transportation, elevators, or escalators, take advantage of daily commutes. Without realizing it, you will have walked that hour every day. Don’t have the money or time to go to the gym? Find something online that you can do at home yourself and reserve about fifteen minutes each day.
