Have you ever wondered why the extra pounds return so quickly after the end of various diets? No? And in vain, if you knew about this, then for sure you avoided the return of extra pounds and would not look for other varieties of diets.
The problem for many is that they choose short-term diets for weight loss, which are only for a few days. At the same time, leave the weight, and go away swiftly. For 3 – 4 days of a short-term diet can be fully reset to 3 kg. But the problem is that these 3 kg are not the fat that you are trying to get rid of, but simply excess water, toxins and toxins that are naturally evolved.
Our body begins to squander its energy reserves from fat cells, only if it lacks the daily amount of calories coming to it with food. But, already in 2 – 3 days, "self-protection" in the body is activated, which leads to a slowing down of metabolic processes and the growth of the fat layer, even with a minimal amount of incoming calories. It is for this reason that you can often observe how, with short-term diets for the first few days, weight begins to melt in front of your eyes, and then it slows down or it quickly returns back. Another thing is the diet every other day.
As it became clear from the title, this diet implies compliance with strict rules every other day. That is, one day you stick to a diet, while the caloric content of your diet should be equated to zero, and the other day you eat the usual food to which you are accustomed, but in moderation. And what does this give? What is the result of weight loss? Let's try to figure it out.
The essence of the diet every other day
The essence of the diet every other day is that it does not allow the body to start a mechanism of self-defense, as a result of which there is no slowing of metabolic processes and the weight does not "stand still" and does not start to increase.
When you eat 1 a day normally, and on another day severely restrict yourself in everything, you begin to "tangle" your body. He can not understand if he needs to defend himself, or everything is in order and it is possible to work as before. That is, he is constantly in a small stress, because of what happens a rapid loss of extra pounds.
However, it is worthwhile to understand that if you completely refuse food and starve in one day, and on another day you throw yourself on food and will eat chocolate, fatty meat and fried foods, then naturally, no diet will give any result. Therefore, even in those days when you can eat anything, you need to know the measure and not to allow overeating and excessive increase in your calorie rate of the daily diet. Otherwise, weight will not only not go away, but on the contrary, it will start to increase.
There are several variations of the diet every other day, for example, 1 + 1 and 2 + 2. The first digit means the number of days of the diet, and the second number means the number of days in which you can eat in the usual way. At the same time during the diet, you can completely abandon the use of food, and you can replace them with low-calorie, for example, kefir or tomatoes. Let's look at examples of diet every other day.
Diet every other day on yogurt
This diet is somewhat reminiscent of the usual kefir diet, where except kefir you can not eat anything. So here, only to use this sour-milk drink you will have one day. The next day you can eat everything you want. However, you should still slightly restrict yourself to sweet, fatty, salty and fried foods, otherwise the diet will not yield any results in a day.
In a day it is allowed to use no more than 1,5 l 1% kefir. Follow such a diet until you reach the desired results. After that, it is also necessary to arrange unloading days for your organism at least once a week.
Diet 1 + 1
This diet option every other day is the most stringent, since it assumes 1 day of full wet fasting and 1 day of the usual diet.
Wet starvation is the complete absence of any food. You can drink only water, but not more than 2-liters per day. This diet option is not suitable for everyone, if you feel strong dizziness, or weakness, immediately give up diet and find a more suitable option for weight loss.
Diet 2 + 2
Another version of the diet, which is aimed at alternating days, 2 days "sit" on a diet, 2 days we eat what we want. During a two-day "sitting" on a diet, you can use the following products (that is, choose one of the options):
- 1,5 kg of green apples per day;
- 3 – 4 grapefruit per day or 6 oranges;
- 3 packs of fat-free cottage cheese;
- 1,5 kg of tomatoes or cucumbers per day;
- one boiled chicken breast, cooked without the addition of salt, and greens in unlimited quantities.
To ensure that the diet does not get boring, it is best to alternate these foods. In all variants of the diet every other day, it is necessary to comply with the drinking regime, that is, it is necessary to drink at least 1,5 liters of water per day, and you need to drink one glass of water before each meal with the addition of 1 tsp. lemon juice. After eating, you can not drink water for about 1 hours.
