Every woman adores and wishes a Brazilian model body. That’s because of their perfect tall figure. FYI this is not a diet planned or designed by any trainer but actually 143 pages Brazilian guide to weight loss developed by the country’s government. They have a rule book that allows people of the country to eat real and traditional food. In Brazil, a majority of people are obese and hence the Brazilian Guide to weight loss.
So let’s find out about their mantra to stay in shape and adopt it, too:
#1 Avoid soda and other fast food
Brazilian guide says that one should not eat ultra-processed food. Packaged food, snacks, instant noodles because they are nutritionally unbalanced. The guide says “Their means of production, distribution, marketing, and consumption damage culture, social life, and the environment.”
#2 Eat like your mom or grandmother used to prepare for you
The Brazilian guide advice to eat meals as you mother or grandmother use to prepare. Since these meals are more nutritionally balanced.
#3 Cut on snacking
Brazilian food guide also says that it is beneficial to go for regular meals and skip on snacking in between. Since snacks are usually processed food, or fried or boxed goodies, they are not healthy. It is better to have three balanced meals in a day.
#4 Eat at the right place
The Brazilian guide says, “clean, quiet, and comfortable places encourage attention to the act of eating mindfully and slowly, enable meals to be fully appreciated, and decreased overeating.”
#5 Share your cooking skills
According to the Brazilian guide you should share your skills with others, “if you have cooking skills, develop them and them, especially with boys and girls. If you do not have these skills-men as well as women- acquire them.”
The guide says not just the right food but exercise is also essential. The US Department of Health and Human Service advises doing at least weekly aerobics. Even brisk walk in the morning and evening will be being a lot of changes in your life.
#7 Avoid eating alone
The guide claims that you tend to eat more when you eat alone. So it’s better to eat in groups, since eating together “is part of the evolution and adaptation of humanity and the development of culture and civilization”, too.
#8 Don’t fall for advertisement
The Brazilian guide also recommends not to fall for the food advertisement. It says the purpose of the advertisement is not to increase their sale and not to educate you. Thus, they result in faulty food choices that can harm your health and diet.
