To lose weight with salads, it is very important that you know how to prepare them. The ingredients that you choose and, above all, the dressings, will play a fundamental role. But also the time of day. And is that slimming is a science, easy if you know how to do it, but quite unknown to most, who may spend a lifetime doing the diets incorrectly.
Not all tomato varieties are good for salads. Choose the one that best fits according to how you want to consume it (in salad, in juice, in sauce, in toast …)
Ideally, take advantage of the benefits of salads to meet your nutrient needs: opt for a compendium of fiber, energy, hydration, and low-calorie. For example? A salad of chickpeas, chopped cucumber, tomato and skim cheese.
Main course or accompaniment:
If you are not satisfied enough or if you like to fool the stomach by eating something else, you can lose weight with salads by taking them as an accompaniment. Of course, make the main course small and light and the salad represents a large part of what you are consuming.
Do not camouflage salads to forbidden foods:
Prohibited foods are still banned even though they are “hidden” in a cloud of lettuce and vegetables. Some of the ingredients that you should NOT include in your salads are croutons, bacon, mahonia sauces, high fat cheeses.
Give flavor and health to your meals
Choose the oil well
To lose weight, opt for olive oil. It is true that it has calories, but its nutritional power makes up for everything. Of course, the amount should be small. How to achieve it? Make a mixture based of lemon, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil. In this way, the amount of oil will be less and the mixture very tasty.
What is the best time to have a salad?
We recommend salads at night to make a nutritious and low-calorie dinner, but it can also be an ideal lunch. Avoid at breakfast. They do not stick much and also they will not give you the energy you need to start the day well.
