Although the grey days of late-winter seem to be endless, Spring is approaching very fast. In no time we will switch from knitted sweaters and stuffed jackets to easy-breezy skirts and tight shorts.
So what is your reaction when you realize that your favorite pairs of cotton pants don’t fit you any more? Of course your first reaction is panic and depression. But as most of the times, nature comes to your aid only if you are willing to accept her help.
The markets are filled with fruits and vegetables so all you have to do is commit yourself to a natural detoxicating diet. This will help you loose those few pounds of overweight or just give you a boost of energy by cleansing your body of toxins. This extra energy will also help your immune system fight back those nasty viruses of flue that wake up with the thaw of winter.
Fruits and vegetables contain lots of vitamins and minerals but you will have to pay attention to consume enough proteins and salt as well. So it is not about starvation, or thirst. Actually the diet is not going to do you any good if you don’t drink enough liquids.
Another useful tip might be to serve your salad in blue colored dishes as this color is proven to diminish your appetite.
If you are having lunch at your workplace, make yourself a light salad of veggies and add some tuna or steamed chicken-breast to make it more satisfying.
If you get hungry between meals, munch on an apple, carrot, a few nuts, and some dried or frozen fruits instead of having bakery goods which fill you up but don’t keep you running for too long.
