Wanting to lose those extra pounds, some girls are ready to eat chicken breasts, low-fat cottage cheese and cucumbers all day long. And it seems that there is nothing wrong with that. Is it really? Can a uniform diet be balanced? Julia Shirochkina learned from Elena Degtyar, candidate of biological sciences.
Elena Degtyar offers an approximate menu of a varied balanced diet. It is based on the calculation of a portion with a volume of about 1-1.
5 cups (250-350 ml) and intervals between meals 2-4 hours, depending on the degree of hunger. In addition, it is important not to forget to use a sufficient amount of liquid, focusing on the average norm - 1.5-2 liters of water per day.

More important than any obvious examples - understanding of the principles by which a balanced diet is made.
First of all, it is advisable to eat foods rich in carbohydrates in the first half of the day, protein - in the second. Ideally, the diet should contain a variety of cereals, sources of fat, legumes and a wide selection of vegetables (not only cucumbers and tomatoes) and greens.
