Suitable for everyone, especially for people who don’t have a lot of free time, this low calorie diet rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. As such, it speeds up metabolism, helps to burn fat and cleanse the body of toxins.
The base of the menu is a soup, for which preparation should be assigned very little money, and cooked in large quantities, but it can last several days. Your advantage is that you do not have to starve yourself; unlimited quantities can be eaten at any time of the day. In addition, some nutritionists argue that the more you eat, the more you lose weight.
With soup, depending on the day of the diet you should eat fruits, vegetables, lean meat, milk and rice. If you do not like beef, on the prescribed days you can substitute it with roasted chicken breast without skin or fried fish. During the diet, it is strictly forbidden to drink alcohol and sugary drinks and eat bread and pasta. It is important to drink plenty of fluids – at least six to eight glasses of water a day, unsweetened tea and a cup of black coffee.
Sandra Maric, B. Sc. Nutritionist, warns and advises:
– I recommend to be on a diet for a week and then take a break of two weeks. Diet is often recommended for people who lose weight before surgery. It should also be remembered that due to the lack of protein, calcium, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and even mineral, diet is often accompanied by a lack of energy and a decrease in muscle mass, leading to fatigue and exhaustion.
