5 menus to change your diet and lose weight the healthy way

5 menus to change your diet and lose weight the healthy way

Forget fancy or restrictive diets. It is difficult to follow them for a long time and is not always healthy. Starting today, you will receive weekly menus that will help you create the habit of healthy eating and losing weight.

The menus were prepared by a dietician Victor Machado, columnist at live well. A specialist in behavioral nutrition, he advocates a “calm, honest relationship with food,” which allows you to lose weight by eating everything (even chocolate!), without depriving yourself of certain food groups or starving yourself.

Below, you will find 5 menus, Monday through Friday, exclusively for UOL subscribers (who are not subscribers can only see the Monday menu, Subscribe to UOL here). UOL subscribers also access a shopping list of the ingredients they will be consuming over the course of the week and a recipe.

On Saturday and Sunday, repeat your favorite meals of the week – Wednesday breakfast, Friday lunch, etc.

Since the suggestion is to lose weight while eating whatever you want, you can eat something from the menu for one meal a week (it’s just one meal, not the whole day, okay?). The suggestion is to leave it to do it on Saturday or Sunday, when we have more social events. Just don’t overdo it. Machado instructs: “Eat until you feel full, and you don’t feel sick.”

Foods on the menu without a specified amount can be eaten freely, because they are natural, nutritious products that ensure satiety – explains Machado How important is this to Weight loss. If you don’t like a particular food, you can eat another from the same group (change fish for chicken, broccoli for cauliflower or zucchini, strawberries for watermelon, potatoes for cassava, etc.) or choose any other meal of the week.

Use vinegar, lemon, herbs, onion, garlic, pepper, and salt to taste to season vegetables (raw and cooked), meat, and fish.

Weekly shopping list

This list is based on the average food consumption of a person looking to lose weight. The ideal option is to check all the listings before you go shopping and make adjustments according to your preference. Example: We recommend that you buy 1 eggplant and 1 zucchini, but if you don’t like eggplant, buy 2 zucchini or any other vegetable of your choice (chayote, pepper, green beans).

Avoid wasting! If there is food left in the fridge at the end of the week, you can repeat the meals they go in the following week or adjust the following week’s menu to include these products, as long as you make changes in the same batch.
