Spanish diet: how to lose weight without losing your head

If you want to lose weight and maintain the result, it is important to accustom yourself to eat healthy food constantly. Try to start with a Spanish diet that will help cleanse the body and adjust to proper nutrition. It does not provide rapid weight loss. Following it for two weeks, you can lose 6-7 pounds. Since bodyweight decreases gradually, the body does not feel stress. It is important to maintain physical and mental comfort. 

Principles and rules of diet

Spanish Institute of Nutrition experts warns that miracles in weight loss do not exist. Only understanding, patience and willpower will give a positive result.

It is better to choose lean meat, without fat, for example, dorsal-scapular part, pork thigh, or beef loin. Before cooking, you should remove the fat, and cook better with spices, herbs and a little oil.

The main requirement for fish is its freshness, elasticity, moist and mild odour. Both white and redfish have useful properties and low-fat content.

Seasonings and sauces are better to cook at home. In this case, you can choose the composition using the right ingredients. 

As for side dishes, you should first exclude fried potatoes, preferring boiled or baked in the oven. Well suited, for example, puree with skim milk and a little butter. Mushrooms and vegetable garnishes can be eaten raw as a variety of salads, and, for example, stewed.

Particular attention should be paid to alcohol. Alcohol is low in nutrients and high in calories, which can be stored in the form of fats.
