Know how to control your diet
Most of the time, and as with any sports program, the most complicated phases are at the beginning and the end. When you start your cutting program, your body needs some time to adapt. Losing weight after a mass gain is a bit like going from nothing to nothing very quickly. This is why it is imperative to take your time and reduce your caloric intake gradually.
Treat yourself to healthy foods
Continuing to eat while having fun is essential to achieving your cut. Indeed, if food becomes your enemy, it will be more difficult for you to continue your program over a long period.
Certain foods are ideal for making you happy while maintaining a correct cutting diet and enjoying the benefits of the nutrients provided.
Organic Whole Peanut Butter is an ideal companion for a low calorie diet. Practical and healthy, it is a source of vitamins and selenium: it provides energy on training days. A source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 6), our peanut butter allows you to respect a cutting program while maintaining good lipid intake. In addition, butter provides a good effect of satiety and helps prevent snacking.
Protein bars : proteins are the reference appetite suppressant nutrients when performing a cutting program. Nutrimuscle protein bars are rich in it (30%). Thus, they can modulate the hormones that control appetite: leptin and ghrelin. Thanks to their high fiber content, they help limit your caloric intake and provide a satiety effect.
Try appetite suppressants
Organic rolled oats are a low glycemic index carbohydrate source thanks to their high fiber content. These slow down the absorption of carbohydrates, which reduces the rise in insulin. During a low-calorie diet, the body lacks energy. The intake of organic oat flakes is ideal to last throughout your day and during your training session.
Barley flakes are also recommended during a low-calorie diet: they provide a satiety effect, are low in calories and help provide a sufficient dose of energy for the day.
Numerous studies confirm the importance of hydration in diets aimed at weight loss. Indeed, water makes it easier to lose fat thanks to the acceleration of the metabolism. Drinking enough water before a meal also allows you to reduce hunger, and therefore limit your calorie intake. After your meals you can continue to hydrate yourself by drinking tea for example. The latter is rich in antioxidants and is positioned as an excellent anti-fat: it inhibits the caloric absorption of lipids and dietary sugars. Good hydration also allows you to fill up with minerals (calcium, magnesium, sodium).
