How to lose weight correctly
Losing weight without stress and harm to health is real. You just need to know how to do it and adhere to certain rules. It is about them that we will talk.

In order for the process of losing weight to be as comfortable and safe for the body as possible, it is necessary to balance the psycho-emotional state and prepare in advance.

To do this, you need:

1. 2 weeks before starting to lose weight, start a course of soothing herbal teas and anti-stress natural essential oils (this can be: lavender, ylang-ylang, tangerine, vanilla, etc.).

2. Determine the body mass index (BMI). It is calculated by the formula:

ITM = M / (P * P)
where
M – weight, kg
P – height, m

19-24 – norm
25-29 – overweight
30 or more – obesity

Example
Weight – 84 kg
Height – 1.67 m

ITM = 84 / (1.67 * 1.67) = 30.12
The result corresponds to obesity.

3. Set a clear goal for yourself – how much I want to weigh.

4. Calculate the difference between actual and desired weight. For example, now the weight is 84 kg, I want 54 kg. Difference: 84-54 = 30 kg

5. Calculate, based on the norms of weight loss (3-4 kg per month), the period for losing weight. For example, you need to lose 30 kg.
Period = 30/3 = 10 months

6. Start keeping a food diary (so far no changes in diet). This is important because it is necessary to clearly identify the causes of excess weight (more on them below).

Why can’t you lose weight if you already eat so little?
Oftentimes, people don’t really understand what is causing them to be overweight. And most often, without understanding this issue, they refer to a special constitution, wide bone, heredity, hormones, etc.

Here are just some of the possible reasons:
1. Unconsciously eating “extra” calories.
2. Eating spicy foods.
3. Meals are not out of hunger, but out of boredom.
4. Snacks “for the company”.
5. Overeating and distended stomach.
6. Seizing stress and troubles.
7. Late meals / snacks / tea drinking.
8. The use of strict diets and fasting.
9. Failure to comply with the “rules of the plate”.
10. Failure to comply with the proportions of calories consumed during the day.
11. The transition to dietary and lean food.
12. Exclusion from the menu of familiar products without introducing alternative ones into the diet.
13. Preparation of dishes “by eye” (without weighing ingredients and calculating calories).
14. Eating foods that do not correspond to the food type.
15. Eating for loved ones.
16. Eating a lot of sugar.
17. Stocking of products for future use.
18. Lack of daily weight control.
19. Lack of food diary.
20. Lack of clean water in the daily diet.
