Today, various diets have simply enslaved us. After all, every second woman, instead of just watching her health, tries to be like lean girls from magazine covers, constantly limiting herself in nutrition and disrupting her own metabolism.
And it happens because the body can not exist without food. All these short-term diets, which mean a banal hunger-strike on the idea, should shake the body so that it starts actively wasting fat stores. But after 2-3 days, it begins to adapt to the new environment for it and goes into “economy mode”. He begins to save energy, as he does not know whether he will receive anything tomorrow in food or not.
Based on this, the French nutritionist Madeleine Jesta has developed a special nutrition program, which is designed for 7 days. After that, the person has an incentive to further lose weight, because through 4-5 days the result is already noticeable.
The diet of Madeleine does not have strict limitations. The doctor believes that a person should eat as much as his body requires, while the caloric content of dishes and their quantity does not play a special role here. After all, every person is different. For example, a man who weighs more than 100 kg needs a lot more energy than a woman whose weight does not exceed 60 kg.
Therefore, it is pointless to talk about any figures. And so that a man does not break in half the way, losing weight should be as comfortable for him as possible. The main thing is to restore the natural way of eating, that is, eat only when you really want to eat, not just for a company or because it smells very tasty.
Where should we start?
Diet Madeleine Gesta begins with a complete cleansing of the body – the liver, kidneys and the entire system of the gastrointestinal tract. This is a necessity, since only to restore metabolic processes in the body can only be by getting rid of all the harmful substances that contributed to their slowing down.
Purification of the body occurs for two days. At this time, not allowed to eat solid food. Only drinking is allowed, and in very large quantities. Also, the use of healthy food is allowed, but only in small quantities.
By healthy food means raw vegetables and fruits, steamed meat and fish varieties, seafood, vegetable salads and compotes. Nothing fried, smoked and strongly salted during this period should not be used! All food should be fresh and without any additives.
After such fasting days, it will not be so difficult to switch to the diet itself. And after another 5 days a person develops a habit of healthy eating. He begins to understand what is harmful to his body and what does not. In what quantities can you eat and when. All this contributes to weight loss in the future and after the end of the diet. And when a person achieves the desired results, he can easily hold them. After all, now he can eat right and does not feel like eating something fatty or high-calorie.
The menu of the first two days of the diet is cleansing
The French diet Madeleine Gesta consists of two stages – cleansing and five-day weight loss. The first stage is the most important, because it is he who determines how effective weight loss will be. Try not to go too far from home during this period. It will be best if you spend these days outside the city or at home. Do not allow too much physical activity, because the body will receive too little energy from food, and lose 3-4 more times. And this is fraught with deterioration of well-being.
For two days you must act according to the following scheme:
- morning (on an empty stomach) – a glass of cold water with the addition of a small amount of lemon juice;
- noon – any lean meat 120 grams in boiled form and a portion of stewed vegetables;
- throughout the day you can use vegetable broth;
- for an afternoon snack you can eat 100 g of natural yogurt;
- evening only vegetable broth.
Thus it is necessary to drink a lot of water. This will help accelerate the process of cleansing and triggering mechanisms to reduce weight.
Madeleine Jest’s five-day diet
After cleansing, weight loss begins. For 5 days, you should adhere to a strict menu, which consists of:
- a glass of cold water with the addition of a small amount of lemon juice on an empty stomach;
- cups of hot unsweetened cocoa in an hour;
- in another hour and a half, any fruit (to choose from);
- fat-free curd 200 grams, a handful of any berries or two fruits, natural honey bee (up to 2 tbsp);
- for a snack a small handful of dried fruits;
- before dinner for 30 minutes a glass of water with the addition of lemon juice;
- dinner about 200 grams of boiled chicken breast with steamed green vegetables.
This menu should be followed for 5 days. The menu is rather meager, but it helps to quickly eliminate unnecessary kilograms. If at the end of the diet, you feel that you can still hold out on such a diet, please! But remember that every diet is a stress for the body and can provoke the development of various diseases.
Therefore, it is recommended to visit the attending physician before you go on a diet, and after it, to identify possible complications. If your body has had a normal diet and you have not been able to achieve the desired results, then you can repeat the diet again, but without the cleansing phase.
For one week, weight loss with the help of the Madeleine Gesture diet can be reset from 4 to 6 kg! And this despite the fact that any physical activity is contraindicated in her. Therefore, we can conclude that this diet is most suitable for those people who work in offices and lead a sedentary lifestyle.
