I went to the age when hormonal changes in the body give extra pounds, it seems that even from water. And to look in the form very much it would be desirable (I work at school, it is possible to tell in sight at all settlement). Therefore, for a long time I searched the Internet for a suitable diet (I live in a war zone, so there are a lot of restrictions in the form of finances and inadequate staffing of store shelves with the necessary products). And the zucchini diet for me is a real find. While started to use a diet on zucchini caviar (the good cause under bombardment of jars was twisted enough from own kitchen garden). I use only a week, the result is small, only 2 kg, but I'm full of determination. Moreover, a new crop has already started to grow.
After several months of contraceptive use, I encountered very pronounced cellulite with a weight / height of 43 / 160. The mood was at zero, especially when the guy made me remark about a not very attractive form. Then I decided to go on a diet, the choice was very large, but I stopped exactly on a zucchini diet, as I adore this vegetable! Together with the diet, I did wraps with clay on the most problematic places and massage. I stayed at the taverns for only two weeks, but the result is already noticeable! The volume in the hips has decreased, cellulite little by little. Summer is just beginning, one must be in shape, I will continue to eat zucchini, the result so far is pleasant to me.

Decided to try. For the first month, I dropped 8 kg. The first time it was difficult to give up the usual food, but now I eat with pleasure the products combined with zucchini. Effective diet. I recommend.

This diet was tried by my friend, and will start again this summer! She lives in the countryside, so there are a lot of zucchini and she loves them very much. After the divorce – was a nervous breakdown and she "seized the grief" of everything that is not nailed, sometimes I was even frightened that it carries, as in leaps and bounds. And here on the Internet I came across the Kabachkovuyu diet, decided to try. In principle, she did not regret. The diet is really very effective and most importantly, with the benefit for the body, because the vegetables are very useful! The result is summer 2014 year – 89 kg, autumn 2014 year 68 kg.

A squash diet is one of my favorites and tasty, and healthy. Always looking forward to the time when zucchini will go.
Has recovered for a spring on 6 kg, very much wished them to dump or reset. In summer, a beautiful figure is especially necessary!
As soon as the zucchini started baking, making ragout from them, doing sports more often, the weight became lower. Has grown thin for three weeks on a vegetable season before -5 kg. I think this is a worthwhile result.
And I love this diet. After all, you really lose weight from it. And I also like the diet because it is not expensive. And from zucchini you can make a lot of delicious dishes. I lost a month on 5 kg. Very satisfied.
As soon as summer comes the ripening of zucchini, so I immediately begin to practice on a zucchini diet. Firstly, it's delicious, and in the second it's useful. For a month, I can lose about 10 kg, adhering to this diet. You need to know the measure, because this diet can be dangerous for the body, as the zucchini wash away calcium. Therefore, the main thing is not to overdo it!
About zucchini diet read here for the first time here on the site, for some reason earlier and could not think that this vegetable is so important and valuable in the struggle for a beautiful figure! I read the recommendations in the article, and decided to try it unequivocally, and since the zucchini I like, I think it will not be difficult for me to sit on this diet for a week or two, just think a couple of kilograms will go away irrevocably! Maybe one of the girls who really was on this diet will tell you some more recipes for cooking dishes from the zucchini, so to speak for a change? 🙂 And then I was going to go to the market for young zucchini :)))
