Quantities to take for the magical snack time!

I received a very good question from a reader:

“Hi, 
 I really like your website..
 Can you specify the quantity on the snack?
 How much chocolate/fruit/fat…??
Thanks so much”

 

And I replied:

 

“Thank you for your message! I’m happy that you like it.
Yes I know I need to update it to inform on the quantities for snack:
– 30 grams of dark chocolate (min  54% cacao) OR any nuts
AND
– 1 Chinese bowl of fresh fruits (except bananas) OR half a Chinese bowl of dry fruits (like dates, apricots etc.) OR 50cl of freshly squeezed orange juice.
I hope this helps!”

Can I have my coffee with soy milk?

A reader asked me:

 “Hi! do you think that I can have my coffee with soy milk?”

And I replied:

“To be honest I have no clue, Doctor Delabos doesn’t mention this milk at all. If I listen to my intuition I would say yes because this is not fat, animal fat so I would say yes :-)”

Starter – When should you have your proteins?

Another reader asked me about the proteins to take in the starter diet:

“When shall I take the proteins?”

 

“You should take your protein powder or bar as part of your snack. This is the first thing you should take when the snack time comes (when you get hungry in the afternoon which is 4-5 hours after your lunch)”

 

I remind that the proteins are to take ONLY during the starter diet and I also remind that, if you want to repeat the starter diet, WAIT 2 MONTHS before doing it again.

How long should you wait between meals?

Aside

Hungry man

 

I have received a question from a reader who was asking:

I think that Delabos says that there are certain rules in regards to how many hours are necessary
between meals…can you please tell me how much do I have to wait between meals and at what time you need to have dinner before going to bed?”

Here was my answer:

“You need to wait between 4 and 5 hours before having the next meal, actually it is when you get hungry again.
BUT, sometimes you can think you are hungry but in fact you are not, it is in your head 🙂 (willing to eat VS need to eat). That’s why it is good to know that you should take it only 4-5 hours after your meal.
The only time you can reduce this period is after your snack, usually you are hungry between 2-3 hours after and you can eat your diner 2-3 hours after your snack, only if you are sure you will go to sleep 3 hours after.”
Send me your questions and I will always reply (if I can!)
Have a lovely day!

Lazy to do any gym? Try Zumba!

Lazy woman

If you were like me: lazy to do any exercise… stopping as soon as my breathing becomes different and that it looks like I’m gonna die… try one thing: the group exercises.

I was lazy and not doing any exercise until my friends forced me to go a Zumba class… I personally am VERY lazy but I have always loved to dance! If you are like me, try Zumba because you have fun during 45 min or 1 hour and you realise at the end of the class that you are all sweaty and your face is red!

Since that day I registered to a local gym and do almost all the group exercises that exist: body pump, body combat (I love this one), zumba etc.. I tried yoga but I didn’t like it’s too boring…

However, I tried these horrible machines when you run or cycle on your own with music in the ears and this is not for me at all, I get tooooo bored and my laziness comes back. Last time I tried to run, I stayed 5 mins I hate it!

The good thing in the group exercise is that you have:

  1. Loud music
  2. A teacher who motivates you
  3. Other people fatter than you doing it, so you can’t NOT do it!

Now I go to the gym ONLY FOR THE CLASSES twice a week as a minimum (except holidays).

And the nice thing is that you can see how your skin becomes tone and smooth… It’s nice for your partner too… 😉
