Denmark (Danish Diet)
Have you guys heard about Denmark Diet before? KARA’s Nicole claimed that she lost more than 3kg by sticking to Denmark diet. However, I think it's more like a korean denmark diet because i heard that people in denmark have not even heard of this diet (the denmark diet is a extremely popular in korea). Take a look at the before and after pictures! Denmark diet is a very strict high-protein, low fat and low-calorie diet that lasts for 14 days and people who have done this diet lost an average of 7~12kg (15~26lbs). Rules: 1. no salt (in egg, steak, chicken, fish...etc) 2. drink your coffee black (no sugar, milk, cream). 3. steam or cooked meat, nothing fried (also no butter or jam for toast) 4. exercise (especially to avoid yo-yo dieting) 5. no dressing in salads (only acceptable are vinegar and lemon juice) 6. You can change grapefruits with cucumbers, and the coffee with tea. 7. Always check with your doctor or dietician before starting a diet, particularly one as difficult as Denmark diet. So this is the meal plan that you have to follow. Repeat the meal plan for day 8-14. Sounds not bad, right? However you have to give more attention to the disadvantages. Extremely low caloric intake of approximately 600 calories per day will absolutely make you feel weak. It is a very unbalanced eating plan, lacking in fruits, whole grains and dairy, which can lead to kidney problems, bowel impaction and vitamin deficiencies. The worst is that once you stop, you have to start all over again. I tried this once and failed on day 3. I guess losing weight is important but being healthy is above all. What do you guys think?? Please comment!
Your Guide to Getting Rid of Thigh Fat
Thighs are probably the most frustrating areas to tone, lean down, and strengthen. Here are some simple life style changes that can help you get the the strong, lean legs you want! 1. You need CARDIO! Whether you're biking, hiking, running, swimming, or dancing - you just need to be moving! Burning calories is key to reducing your overall body fat, and heart-pumping cardio is going to make that happen. 2. Pump it up! Make hills your friend. Hike up that incline on a treadmill to blast all of that thigh fat! Incline targets the thighs, hamstrings, and tush, toning your lower body. 3. Tone up! With all the cardio you're doing do get rid of the fat, you want to reveal strong, toned muscles underneath. Doing moves that sculpt your inner and outer thighs, hamstrings, and butt will make your legs look leaner and slimmer. 4. Start your day right! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It will jump-start your metabolism, helping to reduce your overall body fat to reveal your leaner legs. 5. Snack snack snack! Eating a little something every few hours will prevent hunger from causing you to overeat, so be sure to eat a snack in between meals. Keep it under 150 calories and choose foods high in protein and fiber to fill you up and offer energy. 6. Write it down You can't slim down by exercise alone. It's important to cut calories as well and to know your daily calorie intake. Though it may seem tedious, keeping a food journal works. In order to lose a pound a week, you need to cut 500 calories a day — 250 through exercise and 250 through diet is a good breakdown. Just be sure not to dip below 1,200 calories. 7. Hydrate! Choose water every time you reach for a drink, and you'll save hundreds of calories avoiding sodas, fruit juices, and other sweetened beverages! 8. Get your beauty sleep! Getting enough rest is also proven to aid in weight loss. Get those 6-8 hours a night! 9. Embrace your shape! If you're blessed with a pear-shaped body, there's not a whole lot that exercise, eating right, and taking care of yourself can change. Do what you can, but don't obsess or stress about it. Enjoy life in the body you were given — thighs and all!
