Drinking diet: sometimes you do not have to eat, but drink to lose weight!

As the name suggests, any drinking diet - whether it's a way to lose weight with kefir, broth, green tea, juice or even plain water - is based on the use of fluids. Are there at least some types of food provided during the drinking diet, or should everything that enters the body be exclusively in liquid form? And how long can you go on a drinking diet? And most importantly, what results does this weight loss system bring?

Drink a diet in all its diversity

Obviously, a drinking diet is not a specific and specialized type of food, but only a nutritional principle that determines the form of food eating, leaving you with food choices. In other words, you can just absorb everything in liquid form, but with this "everything" is just healthy, natural and low-calorie food.

You can often meet fans of juice diets - of course, they also practice drinking food. Such as the kefir diet, the green tea diet, fans of ginger slimming drinks, and the most difficult is the water diet.

If you are a sane person, then you probably understand that the drinking diet should not be based on milkshakes from well -known restaurants, alcoholic beverages, sweet sodas, cocoa, coffee, yogurt industrial drinks and similar products. Strictly speaking, drinking rules will be fully respected, however there is no question of weight loss here.

What can you drink as part of your diet?

  • Air.With a watery drinking diet, you need to drink 2 liters of non -carbonated water daily. But this technique is the most rigorous and complex, few people can withstand it. Since it refers to fasting, then it is permissible to sit on it no more than 3 days. The best option for a water-based diet is to fast 1-3 days a month, when you only drink water. In addition, you should prepare for a strict drinking diet by reducing the amount of food consumed a week before it starts and slowly returning to your normal diet.

  • Broth.These can be chicken, fish or beef, as well as vegetables. You have to cook it yourself and from natural products (no semi -finished products are suitable). It is allowed to add salt during cooking, you can also add carrots, celery, and parsley from the ingredients. Not recommended to add pepper, it adds appetite, like onions.

  • Dairy productsin liquid form can also be the basis of a drinking diet. If it's kefir, then it should be low -fat, as well as baked milk, bifidok or drink yogurt without fillers. You can also take milk as a base with a fat content of no more than 1. 5 percent. But it is believed that milk is not well absorbed by the body of adults, so it is advisable to choose fermented milk products.

  • Fresh juice.Orange juice, grapefruit, apple accordingly. It is better to choose fruit without sugar. Grapefruit is generally considered a leading weight loss product. But you need to be careful and check if you have allergies before starting a juice diet. And most importantly, when choosing a diet to drink juice, remember: fresh juices should not be eaten in their natural form - they must be diluted with still water in a ratio of 1: 1.

  • Tea.Choose green, black, red, or fruit tea, but make sure the tea is green and of high quality. You can not drink it sweet, you can add skim milk or lemon.

  • Fruit drinks or compote.This drink is also suitable for a drinking diet. They are cooked without sugar from fruits and berries. You can also make oatmeal jelly, this is the most satisfying.

  • Vegetable smoothie.In addition to fruit juices for a drinking diet, vegetable juices or smoothies are also perfect. Both are far from pleasant tastes, but if you show patience and experiment a little, then you can choose an acceptable option on your own.

  • Protein shakes.Perhaps this is the most effective and fast drinking diet. As you know, protein diets are among the most effective. However, to take protein shakes without compromising health, you need to make sure that you are not suffering from a chronic disease. And besides, while consuming large amounts of protein, it is necessary to strictly monitor the water regime - drink plenty of still water (otherwise the protein will not be absorbed)

It is very desirable to set a schedule of consumption of "food" - for example, every 2 hours, 1-1, 5 cups. Or every three hours - a little more. And during breaks, don’t forget to drink enough clean water.

How Long to Drink Diet?

The longest drinking diet is known to last around 30 days. The menu can not be mentioned a little and hermit, but all products and "dishes" are used exclusively in liquid form. In the morning - freshly squeezed fruit juice and green tea (naturally without sugar, syrup and jam), closer to lunch - light broth (always second or even third) and vegetable smoothie, in the evening -kefir and protein shakes, and throughout the morning to evening - water is also in quite impressive amounts.

You think that a drinking diet, even if you keep it for only 4-5 days, soothes the intestines perfectly, removes toxins and so-called "food waste" and stimulates the body to use up accumulated fat at the expense of current energy costs (because a liquid diet, if observed correctly, contains few calories).

However, the long term - 20-30 days or more - is an extreme version of the drinking diet. While there is no nutritionist, who would definitely advise anyone to adhere to such a diet (at least outside of ongoing hospital observation) for more than 12-14 days.

The most popular "distance" of the drinking diet is considered to be 7-10 days.

If you choose low-calorie foods for a drinking diet, you drink a little fluid at a time (believe me: if you drink broth from dumplings with a pan for several days in a row, the desired weight loss is unlikely to come, although formally nonecan reprimand you that your diet so far does not drink), you are a lot in the fresh air, and maybe even do sports in a reasonable framework, then for 7 days of drinking diet you can expect yourself to lose 5-7 kg of extra pounds.

"Drinking Day" Diet

Remember that the easiest drinking diet option is a day on the water. The bottom line is simple: throughout the day, you are allowed to drink only clean non -carbonated water. Such days are considered fasting days, and can be spent once a week or 2-3 times a month. Currently, you can only drink water, in unlimited amounts, but not less than 2 liters a day, or spend the day with fresh orange, grapefruit or apple juice mixed with water in a ratio of 1: 1, while maintaining a regime -1, 5 liters a day. Drinking on days like the days on the water gives your body a break from the stress of food that is always digested. Our digestive system needs to be cleansed, only this process starts on fasting days like that.

You need to prepare first. Switch to a healthy diet the week before. If you are a fan of mayonnaise, sauces, sausages and fatty, fried and sweet, exclude these foods from the diet for a week. For a few days before starting the "drink of the day" diet, eat only whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Drink sugar -free beverages throughout the week, and switch to green tea a day before starting your diet. Also drink up to 2 liters of water daily.

You need to leave the diet smoothly, gradually adding low-fat foods-first vegetables, fruits, grains, then low-fat protein foods, after a few weeks you can gradually return to your normal diet. But, again, you shouldn’t immediately rely on floury, sweet and fatty products.

After the "drink day" diet, your stomach will contract, and then you will start eating less, while quickly getting full. Therefore, fasting days like these allow you to reduce your appetite and switch to a healthy diet. On this day, you will lose 1-2 pounds of weight.

Drink diet for 7 days

For a weekly drinking diet, you can lose weight up to 7 kilograms. As a base, you can take juices from vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, broths. In addition to liquid food, it is very important to monitor water - the amount of water consumed per day is at least 1. 5 liters. You can also drink green tea (without leaves) without sugar in unlimited amounts. In order not to get bored with one product, the day of the diet can be replaced. For example:

  • 1 day - with milk or kefir;

  • Day 2 - in the soup;

  • Day 3 - on the juice;

  • Day 4 - tea day;

  • Day 5 - protein or yogurt;

  • Day 6 - in compote (dried apricots, prunes, raisins, cooked without sugar);

  • The last day was watery.

Get out of a drinking diet

Coming out of a weekly drinking diet must be smooth. The next day, after completing a drinking diet, start your breakfast with a small portion of oatmeal in the water. Lunch and dinner can still be drunk. Observe this rule for 2-3 days. Then go up to the next level - for breakfast, eat the dishes you like: eggs, yogurt, cheese, but you should not rely on starchy foods. For lunch, cook porridge and eat an apple or banana. Have dinner. And in the second week, start eating three meals a day with the addition of protein-free foods and vegetables. Increase the amount of carbohydrates in your diet for the third week. Gradually add salt and rye bread, pasta, cereals, potatoes into the diet.
