Tips on how to switch to proper nutrition

  1. Your body needs water! Exactly water, not coffee / tea or beer. It is necessary to drink at least 1-1.5 liters of water daily.
  2. Don't overeat. Try to gradually reduce your meal size and eat slowly, so that the body has time to get satisfied.
  3. Meal size should be smaller. It is recommended to eat 4-5 a day, but smaller meal size.
  4. Do not eat before bedtime. The last meal should be 3 hours before bedtime. "Do not eat after 6" is a revealed myth.
  5. Limit yourself in eating sweets, flour and alcohol. Use them in moderation and not often.
  6. Use Calorie Calculator to calculate needed amount of proteins, fats and carbohydrates in ratio 1:1:4, for knowledge workers - 1:0.8:3, at high physical activity - 1:1:5.
  7. If you want to lose weight - do not forget about physical training.
