Many diets involve various restrictions, calorie counting. All of this takes effort. As a result, many give up, because the process is quite difficult. Trivial laziness interferes with weight loss. But there is another way out - a special diet for the lazy. How to observe it correctly and what is its essence?
The nuances of the diet
The basis of the diet is plain water. It must be drunk before meals. Drink a couple of glasses of water twenty minutes before eating. But during meals and for two hours after, you can not drink anything.
Why does drinking water help? Water improves metabolic processes in the body, removes harmful substances from the intestines and also helps to fill up faster. After two glasses of water, you no longer want to eat that much, therefore, less food will be eaten. And after drinking so much pure water, you don't want to drink a cup of sweet tea anymore. Of course, this will help you lose weight.
The duration of the diet should be two to three weeks. You can only use this diet once a year. But drinking clean water before meals is still healthy.
You should not drink boiled water, as it loses a lot of useful salts and minerals. In this case, the liquid should be slightly warm or cold. If the water is very cold, it slows down the digestion process, so drinking it is not recommended. You need to drink in small sips and with a break, you cannot drink in one gulp. This interesting diet does not prohibit snacking between meals. However, since you also need to drink two glasses of water before snacking, you will hardly want to snack. But if you are hungry, choose healthy foods: fruit, yogurt.
You should not immediately start drinking two glasses of water before meals, it is better to start with one glass, gradually increasing the amount of liquid. Also, before a diet, for three days, it is necessary to drink a tablespoon of flaxseed oil in the morning on an empty stomach, then a glass of clean water. You can have breakfast in ten minutes. This will help cleanse the body and easily enter the diet.
Since you drink three liters of water a day during your diet, you can eliminate calcium, sodium and potassium. Therefore, it is necessary to drink a complex of vitamins and minerals during the diet.
How to make the lazy diet even more effective? Of course, it is necessary to reduce the amount of fatty, spicy and sweet foods on the menu. Also, you need to sleep at least eight hours a day. Physical activity won't hurt, but you don't need to be very zealous.
