Selection and preparation of cereals for unloading

Fried croup has a more pleasant taste, and unroasted – is more useful. Nutritionists recommend green buckwheat, but beginning weight loss should choose themselves.

A variety of fasting days on buckwheat groats

If you adhere to this recommendation, then you can get rid of almost three extra kilograms.
No matter how gracious the day looks like on buckwheat, it also has contraindications. If you do not listen to them, the body will be harmed, not the intended benefit.
So, nutritionists do not recommend unloading on buckwheat:
- People with diseases of the digestive tract (especially peptic ulcers and ailing gastritis);
- A woman breastfeeding;
- A woman in an interesting position (until 28 weeks).

Unloading day for pregnant women: is it possible to spend it?
Immediately answer that it is possible, but if your pregnancy has crossed the border of 28 a week, and there is no prohibition from your healer.
Doctors knowingly forbid mono diets to pregnant women, because growing in them a child with a mother's nutrition gets everything necessary for proper development. Eating a pregnant woman should be balanced.
At 28 week the fetus has already been fully formed and the future mother can devote one day to the unloading using buckwheat porridge at the request and recommendations of the treating doctor.
In no event can you use "bare" buckwheat unloading, only sparing (with vegetables, fruits, milk and yogurt).
Conclusion: a fasting day on buckwheat can bring both benefit and harm, if you approach it rashly and without consulting a doctor. For those who do this for the first time, you need to choose a sparing version of this day.
Do not forget about additional motivation. It could be a new dress or jeans. Let them hang in a conspicuous place to clearly show that your "victims" will not be in vain, but, on the contrary, will benefit you, in the form of those who left the hated kilograms.
