Popular cocktails made from a mix of vegetables, fruits and dairy products really help solve many health problems. And with diets, they are the most faithful helpers. But smoothies cannot replace full meals, so such cocktails should be used as a food supplement or temporary substitute.
To lose weight on smoothies, use the principle of fasting days. You cannot immediately remove all solid food and start eating only vegetables ground in a blender. Follow the sequence. The smoothie diet should not last more than 5 days.
Swap dinner for a smoothie on the first day. A mix of banana, berries and low-fat yogurt is perfect for starters. After taking the smoothie, do not eat anything at night, but drink more water.
On the second day, replace your second breakfast with a smoothie. At the same time, have a hearty breakfast in the morning. Ideally, this should be a hot dish - porridge in water, an omelet, cottage cheese casserole. For lunch, after 2-3 hours, make a smoothie, banana, pineapple, low-fat yogurt or kefir, a sprig of parsley, lemon juice. You should have lunch and afternoon tea with full meals. Make a smoothie for dinner again. A green detox smoothie is perfect: fresh spinach leaves, avocado, boiled broccoli, lemon juice, which replaces salt.
On the third day, the first breakfast should begin with a vitamin mix. But for satiety, add oatmeal to it, and the rest of the ingredients should be fruit and berry. For lunch, you also have a smoothie. For lunch, eat a full-fledged hot dish, replace the afternoon snack with a smoothie - a fruit mix with a fermented milk drink. For dinner, make a green smoothie: kiwi, celery, herbs, fresh cucumber, lemon juice.
You spend the entire fourth and fifth day completely on smoothies. Cook more varied combinations. Pineapple, cranberries, strawberries, grapefruit, spinach, celery are good for burning fat.
After the fifth day of the diet, gradually return to your usual diet. In the early days of the diet, you may feel weakness, headaches, stomach pains. It is better to endure all serious physical activity and travel. Drink plenty of water. But you do not need to bring yourself to a fainting state. If you get dizzy, immediately cancel all cocktails and switch to solid food. The smoothie diet is not suitable for people with food allergies, gastrointestinal diseases, anemia, pregnant and lactating women.
