Without cutting carbs, woman slims 30 kg
American Hannah Howlett had tried everything to lose weight, but it was always the same story: she lost a few pounds, but soon recovered the old weight. It was then that in 2014 she decided to switch to a different strategy and began to eat normally what she wanted, within the vegan diet, which she was already adept. The difference was that now she would move around somehow every day.
So she started eating potatoes with vegetables for breakfast, including peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc. Already at lunch, in general their dishes had rice, with salad leaves, beans and avocado. At dinner, she usually eats a large salad with potatoes. Fruit was included in the snacks between the main meals. In total, she said in an interview with the DailyMail, the American comes to eat four to six potatoes a day, prepared in all forms (even fries).
With a high carbohydrate intake, she remained energetic and satisfied with meals. At the same time, Hannah cut down on alcohol, cigarettes and proposed to walk 10 thousand steps every day (mobile applications usually account for this data). In addition, she also exercised for one hour, about four times a week, whether it was riding a bicycle or doing yoga. With this routine and without starving, she lost 18 kg in six months. In total, 30 kg were eliminated.
After checking the medical records of all these participants and taking into account other factors such as family history of dementia and the gender of each the study's authors found that people who drank moderately - two daily doses for men and one for women - were 23 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer's.
Participants were followed for eight to 16 years. Studies have shown that people never ate chocolate more than once a day and also did not distinguish between dark chocolate or milk. Chocolate bars, chocolates, and chocolate chip cookies were also counted. Chocolate components that may explain the protective effects have not been explored.
