American endocrinologist Elizabeth Lowden named ways to lose weight even for people with a slow metabolism.
The secret to losing weight is in a properly selected diet, the specialist said. So, people who have a slow metabolic process need to include foods with unsaturated fatty acids in their diet, Izvestia writes with reference to the German edition Focus.
Elizabeth Lowden advises eating avocados and walnuts as they are slow to digest and require more energy for the body to digest. Thus, their metabolism will be accelerated.
Also, an endocrinologist proposes to include proteins in the diet that allow you to build muscle mass. In addition, it is necessary to monitor the calorie deficit, since if they are lacking, the body will begin to burn muscle, and fat will remain.
Earlier, nutritionist Elena Solomatina told how to get rid of excess fat in the abdomen.
The doctor explained that such fat is called visceral, that is, internal. According to the specialist, visceral fat accumulates due to a sedentary lifestyle and poor diet, which can lead to diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension and shortness of breath.
To get rid of body fat, the nutritionist advised me to change my dietary habits.
As previously reported by “Kubanskie Novosti”, Japanese scientists have found that some foods and dishes eaten at the beginning of the day can not only spoil the figure, but also shorten our life.
Fasting for 12 to 36 hours has a positive effect on human health.
According to the doctor of medical sciences, an expert of the Federal Research Center of Food Systems named after V.I. V.M. Gorbatova Valery Sergeev, short-term fasting contributes to the fact that the body begins to utilize foreign elements, converting them into glucose, which is necessary for energy production.
