However, according to nutritionist Elena Kalen, this approach does not contribute to weight loss but harms health. According to her, those who try to lose weight need to reconsider their diet first of all.

“By the age of 40, hormones change, and the body does not need as much energy as it used to. By consuming the same amount of calories, a woman runs the risk of gaining weight. Add more vegetables, fruits, cereals and other complex carbohydrates into your diet,” Kalen wrote on her Instagram.

The specialist also recommends consuming more foods rich in Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Fatty fish, broccoli, cauliflower, nuts, avocado normalize metabolism, improve the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract and contribute to the elimination of bad cholesterol from the body.

Besides, it is important to sleep at least seven hours a day, be in fresh air and drink enough plain water, which removes wastes and toxins. “Don't starve. When a woman deliberately refuses to eat, she exposes her body to stress; it stores calories instead of burning them. Strict diets and fasting lead to breakdowns and eating disorders,” said the nutritionist.
