Lenten diet: delicious and safe weight loss
The diet for slimming has a dual effect on the body. It allows you to remove from the body all the slag, toxins and other harmful substances that accumulated for several years, as well as reduce the fat layer, by reducing the calories consumed.
What is the essence of the lean diet?
The essence of the diet is the complete abandonment of animal food for a certain period of time. This can be a week, or maybe 14 and 28 days. Strict restrictions in lean diets do not exist, so it can be observed for a long time.
During the "sitting" on a diet can be reset from 1 to 2 kg per week, someone manages to lose more excess weight, and for someone on the contrary, the weight not only does not go away, but adds. Therefore, to wait from this diet of colossal results in the first days is not worth it, the process of losing weight completely depends on your body.
But in any case, if you manage to lose those extra pounds or not, the lean diet will allow you:
- regulation of metabolic processes;
- lowering cholesterol in the blood;
- normalization of the endocrine system;
- normalization of the cardiovascular system;
- improvement of the digestive tract;
- normalization of the central nervous system;
- normalization of the urinary system;

These substances are toxic and negatively affect the work of almost all internal organs and systems, and their accumulation is due to the consumption of fatty animal food and the use of medicines for a long time.
