Set realistic goals

Before choosing a diet, decide how many kilos you want to lose and methodically work on yourself to achieve the goal. Ideally you should strive to lose a week of not less than one kilogram. Even if this figure seems too small, remember that gradual weight loss results are stored for a longer time than the effect of rapid diet. If you do not try to lose weight, focus on proper nutrition. The daily menu must include five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. Sweet and fatty foods are allowed in moderation.


Encourage achievements

When you sit on a strict diet and count calories, it is important to every one - two weeks to encourage their perseverance and strength of will - it strengthens the resolve to endure to the end and follow a diet with the original fervor. Small prizes, such as a visit to a beauty salon, a manicure or pedicure, increase self-esteem and improve your mood. If you visit the salon for you - a luxury, why not organize an impromptu party and invite friends? Ask friends to bring oil for massage and other means for skin care and arrange a real hen! Even if you are on a diet, but simply trying to eat right, those little joy positive impact on your health.


Do not take yourself too seriously

If you overeat once chocolate or lose scheduled kilograms a week, do not beat yourself up. In every woman's life there are days when you just need to eat something tasty, nutritious and very harmful.

Eat often, but in small portions

To avoid unhealthy foods and successfully continue the diet is necessary to prevent the emergence of hunger. In fact, the more often and stronger this feeling, the weaker your determination to stick to a diet - hunger makes you constantly think about food. Try snacking most carbohydrates and other foods high in fiber, such as salty popcorn or dry breakfast. Drink plenty of water with lime and ice to fill the stomach. Herbal tea - an excellent alternative to cappuccino and latte, which contains a bunch of calories.


Select exercises for the soul

If you hate the thought of visiting the gym, use every opportunity to engage in fitness. Go up and down the stairs (forget about the elevator!), And in the afternoon a walk in the park. Two hours of intense dancing in a disco you burn as many calories as contained in the Christmas cake with a double layer of cream. Within two hours of walking at a moderate pace, you lose the same amount of calories as contained in a gala dinner and a glass of wine. If you are a long time did not engage in sports, before embarking on the exercise, consult your doctor.

 Nicotinic acid (vitamin PP, vitamin B3) is widely used in the treatment of various diseases, as it influences the metabolism Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
   (increasing the rate of redox reactions) - the mechanism that underlies any disease.

 Niacin - application: metabolic disorders

Use of nicotinic acid in pellagra

Pellagra - a disease associated with insufficient intake of or incomplete assimilation of nicotinic acid and tryptophan. There she mainly in those countries where the staple food is maize and the population almost does not use animal protein. The maize also contains the amino acid leucine, hampering the body's co-enzymes, which include nicotinic acid Nicotinic acid: what is its benefit to man?  Nicotinic acid: what is its benefit to man?
 . When the disease affects the gastrointestinal tract (diarrhea, inflammation of the tongue), the skin (redness, swelling, itching), and central nervous system (dementia).

Nicotinic acid or nicotinamide in this disease is prescribed orally at high doses, 100 mg 3 times a day half an hour after a meal for 2 - 3 weeks.

The use of nicotinic acid in diseases of the digestive system

Admission into nicotinic acid stimulates the secretion of gastric juices, so it is always prescribed for gastritis with decreased secretion.

But in other gastrointestinal disease in remission (non-acute) nicotinic acid also shows, as it expands the small blood vessels and promotes a rush of blood to the internal organs. As a result, in the gastrointestinal tract improving metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting

Do not take niacin inside with acute gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcers, as it stimulates the secretion of gastric juice, which will increase the pain and other symptoms of the disease. Additionally, vasodilation of the stomach can cause stomach bleeding.

Nicotinic acid is used in the case when it comes into contact with food in sufficient quantity, but for some reason can not be assimilated. This occurs, for example, malabsorption syndrome when disturbed absorption of food in the small intestine. This may be due to various reasons, for example, after removal of the stomach, liver and pancreas Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know  Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
