Lose weight comfortably
Elena Savchenko - Development Director of the Center for Personal Dietetics "Nutrition Palette". This miracle system helped her lose weight by 18 kg herself!
Home: Overweight is the scourge of so many women. What do you think, if you do not take into account the disease, what is the main reason?Elena Savchenko: I think this is due to the fact that no one taught us to eat right. There are no such courses where they would teach to eat correctly on their own and to properly feed the family and children, but this is especially important for them.
BEFORE: Have you always been inclined to be overweight or has this happened recently?EU: In my youth I was thin, athletic. But during pregnancy and after the first birth - my oldest daughter is already 18 years old - she gradually began to recover. And four years ago - after the second birth - I gained excess weight during breastfeeding. And for 20 years, my attempts to lose weight have been unsuccessful. I tried all kinds of diets (and the Kremlin, and others, on the advice of friends, and all sorts of purifications, and "green weeks"), all this did not bring results. And I decided to turn to a qualified nutritionist, I found a very good specialist, but I didn’t really believe at once that something could be changed.
BEFORE: And then they still believed?EU: The nutritionist said that losing weight is quite simple, and all this will be easy and comfortable. It is only necessary to acquire "excellent student's syndrome" and follow exactly all its recommendations. And, indeed, it turned out to be easy - there was enough food and frequent meals. It turned out so comfortable and easy that I hardly noticed how after 4 months I lost 8 kg, after 6 months I already weighed 57 kg - after 73! That is, in total I lost 18 kg! In addition, I not only lost weight, but now I can adjust the weight. Now I calmly eat what I like, as a pleasure, and I am not recovering. And in this state I feel good.
BEFORE: How is this method different from others?EU: This system is called the "Food Palette": seven colors of the rainbow - seven types of products. It is built on the principle of the world famous "food pyramid". But our “palette” is different in that each client is selected an individual program - depending on what he likes, what kind of eating habits he has developed. And they appoint him not only what is useful, but also what he likes - compromises are possible. This is the whole point, which is why our center is called the “Center for Personal Dietetics”. Each woman has her own “palette”, taking into account her favorite products.
BEFORE: What does the “palette” consist of?EU: In the beginning - a diet. The interval between meals should be from 3 to 5 hours, not more. In addition, foods that are prescribed by a nutritionist, you need to have time to eat in a day. The "palette" includes cereals, proteins, fats, dairy, vegetables, fruits. And we consider the seventh group water - it is necessary to drink a lot. Then the daily norm is determined - what and in what quantities should be eaten. For example, vegetables - at least 500 g, fruits - at least 300 g. Dairy products - 400 g. So, as you can see, there is a lot of food, and all this must be eaten during the day. And during breaks, do not snack, but just drink - unsweetened tea, coffee without milk and sugar, water, but not juice, because it is no longer drinking, it is food.
BEFORE: So you achieved your goal?EU: Losing weight is not so difficult, the main thing is to maintain weight. Our technique allows us to solve this problem very successfully. And it is safer to do this under the supervision of a specialist. And my meeting with such a wonderful nutritionist turned out to be significant, we began to work together with her - I'm like a psychologist, because the help of a psychologist is simply necessary. And I realized how wonderful it is to change people so that they become happier, so that women can choose clothes not in order to cover up “problem” places. On the contrary - to emphasize the figure. After all, how many women we suffer from overweight!
Tips from Elena SavchenkoThe recommendation is not to eat after six in the evening - stress for a woman. You can eat 3 hours before bedtime: if you go to bed at one in the morning, then at 10 pm you will have a quiet dinner. If a child asks for candy, give it before meals, not after. Then dessert will cease to be a bonus, and the main food will be what they force. You do not need to watch TV or read while eating, focus on your feelings. In addition, being distracted, we eat much more. Adhere to our regime, do not eat once again with someone for company. Do not eat up the child and do not force him to eat up by force. This is how bad habits are brought up. Cook tasty, it is very important for those who want to lose weight!
