A little more than a month is left before the New Year, and many women have found that the festive dress does not fit at all the same as before, if not very little. The first thought is to urgently start extreme weight loss! However, not everything is so simple, warns nutritionist Natalya Afanasyeva.
Every woman on New Year's Eve wants to look irresistible, and this concept, of course, includes a slender silhouette. And also corporate parties are coming, at which you need to slay colleagues on the spot with a tight dress. But what if the figure is far from ideal? We turned for advice to a dietitian, a therapist, leading author's seminars on proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles, a teacher of the "Nutrition Consultant" course and an expert of the project Julia Vysotskaya "Innocent Club" Natalia Afanasyeva.
The autumn-winter period, - explains Natalya, - is not the best time for weight loss. Physiologically, during these months, the body is set to store energy: few hours of sunshine, stress and overwork associated with the end of the calendar year do not contribute to weight loss. Weight loss in itself is another stress, so choosing tough restrictions a month before the New Year is more expensive for yourself. If you really do yourself in the hope of losing a few pounds, you should opt for a soft, comprehensive program.
