I tried a lot of diets, but the extra pounds are still in the same place? Try the Six Petals diet for weight loss, which is based on a special sequence of mono-diets. According to its creator, the Swedish nutritionist Anna Johansson, this method is a sure remedy for the hated fat folds at the waist.
Stages of the 6 petal diet:
The secret of the Six Petals diet is that each of its stages is the preparation of the body for the menu of the coming day. The alternation of protein and carbohydrate nutrition, says Dr. Anna Johansson, not only prevents stress, but also leads to successful weight loss. By following all the rules of this diet, in six days you can lose three to five kilograms.
Of course, you need to understand that for people with a lot of weight, such mono-diets are dangerous to health. But if you just need to lose 3–5 kg in a short time, then you can safely choose a diet of 6 petals.
Draw and cut out a flower with six petals to represent your diet days. Label the petals according to the stages of the nutritional system and every evening tear off the one that represents the past day.
Day 1 — Fish
On the first day, eat only boiled, baked or stewed fish. You can lightly salt the food, season it with delicate spices or herbs.
Fatty sea fish is best because it contains a lot of omega‑3 acids, which contribute to weight loss. Use the minimum amount of oil when cooking. During the day, the diet should be 500 g of fish. It will be great if you combine fatty and dietary fish in one day. You can also eat seafood (mussels, squid and shrimp).
It is allowed to drink tea without sugar and a lot of water. Usually, on the first day, the body does not experience much stress, since it receives a lot of protein.
Den 2 – Ovoschnoi
The second stage is vegetable. Your menu should be only salted raw, stewed, boiled or baked vegetables and vegetable juices. Everything except potatoes. You can eat them raw, make smoothies, juices and salads, as well as cook soups. You can also bake them with a minimum amount of spices and oil. Roasting vegetables is not allowed.
You can not limit yourself in the number of vegetables, because they are low in calories.
Day 3 — Kypiny
The dish of the third day of the 6‑petal diet is salted boiled or baked skinless chicken breast. You can drink chicken broth, bake chicken in the oven with spices (eat without skin), steam chicken.
You can use chicken fillet or, if desired, you can replace the chicken with a turkey. Chicken fillet is a nutritious protein, so if you eat it for breakfast, you will feel full for a very long time. For a day you need to eat 500 g of chicken and up to 200 ml of chicken broth.
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water!
Day 4 — Cereal
The fourth day is cereal. Eat cereals (better with a low glycemic index — buckwheat, brown rice, oatmeal), seeds, bran and cereal. It is allowed to drink kvass!
This is the day when you can allow yourself to saturate your body with complex carbohydrates. thanks to this nutrition, you will cleanse your body of protein breakdown products, toxins and toxins.
Day 5 — Curd
The menu of the fifth day of the diet has six petals — low-fat cottage cheese and milk! And again, you have a protein day on schedule. And this time it will be on low-fat cottage cheese, and you can also use up to 100 g of Greek yogurt without additives and a glass of milk.
Eat up to 500 g per day, but the cottage cheese should be low in fat (up to 5%).
Day 6 — Fruit
On this day, you can treat yourself to sweets! But, only natural.
On the last day of the diet, eat raw and baked fruits and fruit juices without sugar. From spices, use cinnamon, lemon zest, vanillin.
You can eat them fresh, make salads and smoothies, bake them in the oven (for example, cook apples with cinnamon in the oven for dinner — the best option for losing weight when you have a sweet tooth).
Even watermelons are allowed on this day. Once the body is full, stop eating.
During all six days, drink as much purified water, green or black tea as possible. Completely give up sugar and sugary foods! These are the main rules.
Well, you need to be surprised if in the first two or three days the weight on the scales does not budge — this is normal. But on the 4th-5th day you can notice minus 2–3 kg on the scales. But the second part of the 6 petal diet will definitely please you!
