On the Internet walks Network Administration: “Do not be discouraged if you are drawn to the fridge after midnight – maybe you’re just a priestess night!” Joking aside, the issue of night “poedalok” in the kitchen must be addressed. We found products that you can eat in the evening without much harm to the figures.
Good night, Metabolism!
To start us see why you can not eat before going to bed. Firstly hours all physiological processes in an organism (including digestion) slow. Therefore, food that has fallen into the stomach shortly before bedtime, consider lie dead weight.
And the fate of her unenviable – undigested food, pardon the physiological details, rot, and your poor stomach in the morning owe it all to recycle, but it is very difficult, it can not cope. This produces toxins that are absorbed into the bloodstream.
In general, a nightmare! And then let the “late risers” no wonder why they have dull brittle hair, impaired immunity, poor skin color, limpness. And the extra weight in the bargain – in fact produced the calories, instead of burned, deposited in reserve with fat on the thighs and abdomen.
Can not load up fast
However, announcing strict evening hunger strike is not necessary. Judge for yourself: from six pm to eight am or poppy-seed – it turns out, your body does not get food for about 13 hours. This occurs for him – a direct guide to action: he starts to stockpile.
And it is not nothing but a fat (lipoprotein lipase enzyme whose activity increases with prolonged food breaks, directs fatty acids in the subcutaneous fat). Moreover, the hunger strike is fraught with insomnia at night – two in the morning the body may require the replenishment of energy reserves.
Therefore, no extremes: the best option – a light dinner three hours before bedtime. Vegetable salad with low-fat cottage cheese, a glass of milk or a piece of cheese with crackers. And all will be well.
If it is absolutely unbearable, and I want to throw something in the stomach shortly before bedtime – we recommend to choose from with negative calorie foods, that is, those that cause burning more calories than you contain yourself. Here are the most popular ones.
For example, Kelly Osbourne eats up half the night on an apple – believes that it helped her (in combination with a diet, of course) to lose weight. Slice of truth in it: one apple with skin contains about 10% of the daily requirement of fiber, which normalize the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, the lower the level of cholesterol in the body and play an important role in losing weight.
It is necessary to remember that wait on apple snacking, if there is a problem with the stomach. These fruits can increase gas production.
Each apelsinka mandarin (and others like them), about 40 calories. But given their small size, can bring fruit in the list of low-calorie foods that are allowed in the evening. Plus, they have a lot of fiber and vitamin C, which are responsible for good digestion. And a few slices on the night of harm will not be exact.
It is worth remembering: acute gastritis and other diseases of the stomach – in the list of contraindications.
About a dozen of calories contained in the spine of celery – is not serious, so it’s safe to eat it, and you can after six. Variants – a light salad (such as carrots) or fresh.
It is necessary to remember that yes, in celery much useful for stomach fat. But it is also a natural diuretic – displays the excess fluid and toxins (at night it is obviously useless). Also, you can not drink celery juice during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, varicose veins, and in diseases of the stomach.
In the evening you can afford and the little animal food. For example, fish. In flounder many proteins with a well-balanced amino acid composition, making it fast and well absorbed by the body.
Fat in the butt a little – about 3%. Calories too at a minimum (83 kcal per 100 g of product – for marine fish is minuscule). But a lot of Vitamin A, E, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, potassium, sodium, iron, phosphorus, and other goodies.
In a lot of yogurt, calcium and trace mineral that is best absorbed in the dark, at night when we sleep. And it is easier to go to sleep – it’s very soft and natural sedative that can be drunk as an easy preventive maintenance insomnia (relaxing effect – due to a small percentage of alcohol formed by fermentation). And, most importantly, yogurt – an easily digestible product that has beneficial effects on intestinal function.
Remember: do not abuse the yogurt, if you have an increased acidity of the stomach.
Make a salad, feed the vegetable oil. First, it is a low-calorie. Secondly, beetroot is rich in betaine, an excellent burn fat. And curcumin, which does not allow the fat cells to grow into blood vessels – and therefore live. Oh, and do not forget to pectin. It was he who controls the motility of the intestines, normalizes intestinal flora, cleanses the body of toxins.
It is worth remembering: kidney disease, acute inflammation of the stomach – a contraindication to the beet.
Banana can not be considered so much a low-calorie – about 90 calories per 100 grams. But one thing is unlikely to damage the figure. Bananas can help even sleep because of the amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin, the hormone of joy, a beneficial effect on the nervous system.
In 2009, scientists at the Australian University of New England found that bananas can help in the treatment of sleep disorders and even snoring. A cocktail of banana at bedtime will help to cope with sleep apnea (when a person is choking during sleep).
It is necessary to remember that increased sugar? Then, from bananas to give you the best. A unripe bananas can increase gas production.
