Fat Burning Weekend, Day 1
The idea of the day: a healthy plate where food acts in synergy to burn fat associated with physical exercises aimed at sheathing, softening, promoting elimination and giving energy.
My morning program, before breakfast:
When you get out of bed , drink slowly and in small sips 1 large glass of apple / cinnamon infused water.
A little yoga: do 6 sun salutations.
Open the windows for ¼ hour and practice alternating yogic breathing. Place the thumb on one nostril and the ring finger on the other. The index and middle fingers are then placed naturally between the eyebrows. Breathe out, then inhale slowly through the left nostril, closing the right one. Hold air for as long as it is comfortable. Then breathe out through the right nostril. Ditto on the other side. Repeat the cycle a dozen times.
Breakfast : organic green tea, 3 tbsp. to s. oatmeal + cinnamon + soy milk. Smoothie: 1 squeezed orange to mix with 100g of raspberries (fresh or frozen).
9am shower boost. This mini thermal shock will “shake up” the stored fat and facilitate their elimination. Start with hot water, then reduce the temperature. Pass the jet first on the ankles then gradually go up towards the heart. To do, ideally, for 2 to 3 min.
