Many diets show various restrictions, calorie counting. All this requires a high level of effort. As a result, many give up, because the process is quite difficult. Superficial laziness interferes with weight loss. But there is another way out - a special diet for lazy people. How to observe it properly, and what is the point?
The basis of the diet is plain water. It must be drunk before meals. Drink a few glasses of water twenty minutes before eating. But during meals and for two hours after that, you should not drink anything.
Why does drinking water help? Water improves metabolic processes in the body, removes harmful substances from the intestines, and also helps get satiety faster. After two glasses of water, you no longer want to eat so much, therefore, less food to eat. And after drinking so much pure water, you no longer want to drink a cup of sweet tea. Naturally, this will help you lose weight.
The duration of the diet must be two to three weeks. You can use this diet only once a year. But drinking clean water before meals stays healthy.
You should not drink boiled water, because it loses a lot of useful salts and minerals. In this case, the liquid should be slightly warm or cold. If the water is very cold, it will slow down the digestive process, so it is not recommended to drink it. You have to drink in small sips and with pauses, you cannot drink in one sip. This interesting food does not prohibit snacks between meals. But, since you also need to drink two glasses of water before a snack, you definitely don’t want to eat. But if you are hungry, choose healthy foods: fruit, yogurt.
You can not immediately drink two glasses of water before meals, it is better to start with one glass, gradually increasing the amount of fluid. In addition, before going on a diet, for three days, you need to drink a tablespoon of flaxseed oil in the morning on an empty stomach, and then a glass of clean water. You can have breakfast in ten minutes. This will help cleanse the body and enter the diet easily.
Since you drink three liters of water a day while on a diet, it can remove calcium, sodium and potassium. Therefore, it is necessary to drink vitamin and mineral complexes throughout the diet.
How to make a lazy diet more effective? Of course, you need to reduce the amount of fatty, spicy and sweet foods on the menu. In addition, you need to sleep at least eight hours a day. Physical activity will not be painful, but there is no need to be enthusiastic.
