Eat light and fresh meals
It is not about eating less, but eating light and fresh meals with fewer calories and more water content. Including fruits, vegetables and cold dishes in our diet, instead of greasy and elaborate dishes, will allow us to satiate our hunger without weighing us down, and will keep our skin well-nourished and hydrated.
Drink at least 2 litres of water a day and avoid alcoholic beverages, which can cause dehydration. Avoid soft drinks, juices and sweetened drinks, which should never replace water.
Choose light foods that help replace the salts lost through sweat: salads, fruits, vegetables, cold soups (gazpacho). Eat vegetables and fruit twice a day. If they are raw, make sure they are well washed. Eat vegetables 3-4 times a week.
If you like dairy products, drink milk, sugar-free yogurt or cheese, preferably skimmed and always keep them in the fridge.
If you eat meat, remove any visible fat. Choose chicken, turkey, rabbit, lean beef or lean pork once or twice a week. You can have fish or eggs 2 or 3 times a week.
Avoid eating processed foods, pastries, and foods of low nutritional value.
Replace salt with condiments or aromatic herbs and season food preferably with extra virgin olive oil.
