There is no such thing as ‘Let me do this and I`ll lose weight and then let it go again’. Actually, if we`re not hungry; If there is no feeling of hunger in our stomach, it’s better not to consume snacks. After skipping meals, our metabolism slows down. When it slows down, there will be a desire to eat more in the evening. This is a reason for us to gain weight. The most important meal is breakfast. In a day; in order to be more energetic, more dynamic and open to consciousness, breakfast is very important. TV has an effect. We`re in front of the television, we`re resting, and while watching television, we often eat something. We have to finish this at least by 21:00 pm. This also has an adaptation process. We, in this cooperation, ensure that this process works. We are with you in this process and after that. ”
