When you consume foods containing sugar, your blood sugar rises rapidly and again falls rapidly, which leads to sudden hunger in the body, causing you to eat more. Therefore, you should definitely avoid sugar consumption. Another important point to pay attention to is hidden candies! You may not be throwing any sugar into your tea, which is a very important habit for your health.

When there is not enough water in the body, the brain stops burning fat and stores fat.

So if you consume more than 2-3 cups of tea or coffee during the day, your body will need more water. So after each tea and coffee, do not forget to drink a glass of water in October in addition to your daily needs.


“To reduce fat around the abdomen and waist, it is necessary to choose protein and fiber-weighted foods, “because foods containing protein and fiber regulate blood sugar levels and keep them full for longer. Therefore, be sure to include cheese and eggs, which are a good source of protein, for breakfast. Avoid flour foods such as burritos, doughnuts, and sugary foods. At lunch, you can still choose protein-weighted meat/chicken/fish or dried legumes. It can also be accompanied by a mixed Yesil salad with a lot of fiber. In the evening, it is useful to consume more vegetables and yogurt,” he says.

Be careful not to consume more than 3-4 servings of fruit on average daily. A medium-sized apple or pear is a serving. 2 figs, 15 grapes, 1 kiwi, a medium-sized half pomegranate is also equivalent to one serving of fruit. Also, consume the fruit in intermediate meals, decoupling it during the day, not in a plate,” he says.
