“No” to sweets, “yes” to movement
Italians advise not to count calories, but to learn to listen to yourself and stop eating as soon as you are full. Slow lunches also contribute to this: when half the time is spent talking, you involuntarily eat less. At the same time, dinners in Italy are dense – after them, snacks and fast food will not pull.
Dessert after the main course is also optional, according to Italians. They prefer fruit and cheese with nuts to end their meal. And they move a lot: they ride bicycles, walk, run, dance.
Choose the right one
It just seems that the dishes of the inhabitants of Italy are entirely floury and fatty. Nothing like this! Italians skillfully dilute everyday meals with healthy ingredients. For example, beans are very popular – a low-calorie product that is high in protein and fiber. Balsamic vinegar is used instead of fatty dressings in salads, and pasta is eaten as a first course with more vegetables, less meat and, again, healthy olive oil and tomato sauces.

Diets and stress are definitely not about Italians. They rely on a calm attitude to life and food, moderation in food and the rejection of harmful ingredients. Simple homemade food in moderation and a minimum of worries about all sorts of trifles like extra centimeters at the waist – this is the real Italian diet.
