What is the essence of the New York diet
At the first stage of the diet (it lasts 2 weeks) — the most stringent restrictions. All carbohydrates are completely excluded from the menu. At the second and third stages (their duration is 2 and 4 weeks), it is allowed to gradually introduce prohibited foods into the diet. You need to eat 5 times a day. The interval between meals is 3 hours.
Physical activity while dieting
An obligatory part of each stage of the diet is physical activity. The author recommends walking and cycling more. And every day to do exercises on different muscle groups. For example, such.
Side plank: starting position — lying on your side. Lean on the forearm of your left hand and put one foot on the other. Raise your pelvis until your upper body and legs are in a straight line (buttocks and abs tight). Hold this position for 10 seconds. Do 5 reps for each side (with short breaks).
Lunges: put your feet shoulder-width apart (body weight should fall on your heels), inhale and take a step back with your right foot. Lower your body until your legs form a right angle. Exhale, return to the starting position. Change your leg. Complete 10 times.
Important! The American diet is quite rigid and unbalanced (especially at the first stage), so it is not suitable for everyone. If you have any chronic diseases, be sure to consult your doctor.
