 “I've had periods in my life when I try different types of pills, weight loss programs and exercise. Some were good, some bad, and most really really bad, but what I am now, I would recommend to everyone without thinking. I regularly consume kefir. Since then my health has improved tremendously and weakening turned out to be a wonderful plus. But officially, to clarify it, drinking kefir helped me lose weight.”

Drink from Kefir

  This conversation with my dear friend that I had not seen her in a while intrigued me and made me do a deeper study of this I am free to call miraculous drink which you can read below. 
  To start I am sure my curious readers will have several questions like what is kefir? What are its health benefits? How it can help with weightloss?

  Kefir originated in the Caucasus Mountains of centuries ago. The word "kefir" derives from the Turkish word "keif", which literally translates as "good feeling" after a cup!
  So what exactly is it? Kefir is a complex symbiosis of more than 30 microflora, which form grain structure of proteins, lipids and sugars.
  Kefir is a drink with a creamy and slightly bitter taste of yoghurt, which is in fact the fermented milk contains calcium, protein, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamins A, B2, B12, C and E. But the most important thing it contain and that I think is very important are enzymes and "probiotics" that relate to microbes that are "beneficial for life."

  Probiotics are live and cultivated bacteria that help clean the intestinal tract, strengthening the immune system and improve the overall balance of health. Kefir is much healthier than your favorite yogurt because yogurt has only one or two types of probiotics, while casual drink from kefir has 10 or more.  
 Probiotics will not only keep you healthy, but will also help you lose weight.

  While most people think that if you reduce your intake of milk daily it can reduce your weight, a study conducted by the University of Tennessee  argues that the daily consumption of 3 to 4 servings of dairy products can actually help you lose some weight. Kefir is a fermented milk with added calcium as one of his content. According to the survey, more calcium from food have in your cells, the more fat is burned than stored and kept.

So the 5 steps that show you how to lose weight with kefir are...

First, switch to a healthy kefir diet which will not only reduce weight but also will improve your health. Drink kefir every morning for breakfast. Use kefir as your regular milk and so you can mix some fruits - banana, peaches, mango or melon - with milk from kefir to make a smoothie.

Second, when you make salad, create your own mix by simply buying dry ingredients to decorate the salad, then use the kefir instead of your daily milk. Consume healthy salad of kefir for lunch and dinner. In other words, use kefir instead of milk whenever possible.

  How often should you eat kefir salad or any foods with kefir? And how from the drink you should consume daily? Well, for sure you should not consult your doctor to know how much you should drink kefir daily, because kefir is an organic healthy drink, not a dietary supplement for weight loss. This excludes nearly all possible side effects. Just buy kefir with low-fat or fat-free.

  There are different types of kefir that can be purchased at health food stores: plain kefir, fat-free, kefir from cow or goat milk and so on. You also can buy only kefir grains, so you can make your own power drink for home consumption or drink with your favorite fruit or taste. 
 There are two types of kefir grains, milk and water kefir grains. You can make healthy kefir drinks using water kefir grains, which are also called tibicos, California bees (called by many people) or Japanese water crystals.

Third, since kefir is really healthy drink, you still need to watch how many calories you enter with kefir. When trying to reduce some weight using any type of drink or nutritious smoothie, you still need to watch the calorie intake and regular exercise. Purchase the correct type of kefir for the intended purpose, such as to lose weight. There are about 87 calories in 3/4 cup of kefir. A glass kefir may contain 110 calories.

  You might also want to know how many carbohydrates are necessary with kefir. A serving of 240 grams should contain only about 12 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of protein and 2 grams of fat.

  I know, counting calories is like a taboo for a normal person (like me), so I would like to paraphrase something that would sound normal... "Controlled serving." That's how you should know when it's enough to control yourself. Import and export of calories is obvious theory, but it acts on me (and for millions of other people in the world), so I do not regret it. 
  Apply HiiT (High-intensity interval training) an exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. So we have cardio + a little weight lifting + diet –Perfect solution.

  The preparation of water kefir is also a healthy alternative as a dietary supplement for weight loss. Simply add water kefir grains in a jar or pitcher. Place different kinds of aromas and flavors that you want, such as lemon, pineapple or ginger. If you want to sweeten the mix, be careful how much sugar you add. Use soluble sugar, not honey. Never use honey because honey can damage water kefir grains.

  Smart Move is to drink milk kefir and water kefir interchangeably. Both have the same effects on health and weight loss, but with different tastes, textures and needs. Milk kefir is similar to yogurt, and water kefir is like baking (and it is almost as if the beer is brewed). 

  But how many calories there are in fact in a water kefir? There is no correct answer, because it depends on how the grains are fermented. However, it is safe to say that the calorie content is very low, almost no or much less than what is in the milk kefir.

 Fourth, for those really serious who want to lose weight or want to lose a considerable amount of weight, replace one or two meals a day with a glass of fruit smoothie with kefir? If this is too much, turn cheese and bread for breakfast, vegetables for lunch, fruit for snacks and small pieces of cooked fish and vegetables for dinner.

Finally, probiotics found in kefir can help you lose weight, reduce cholesterol, purify your inner eco-system and improves intestinal movement. Loss of weight and having a nice body is primarily an overall discipline. Be careful what you eat, reduce your alcohol intake, sleep is, avoid stress and exercise regularly.
