The essence of the watermelon monocomponent diet is that for 5 days only watermelons are eaten. The number of watermelons is calculated by the formula: 1 kg of pulp per 10 kg of its own weight. For one course of such a diet, you can lose from 3 to 7 kilograms.
Watermelon is not only extremely tasty, but also a useful product that cleanses the body, removes salts and slags, and normalizes metabolism. A large amount of fiber will improve digestion, will contribute to the proper functioning of the intestines.
This diet is completely contraindicated for people with diabetes, with diseases of the genitourinary system and kidneys.
During the diet, you should carefully monitor their health. And in the case of flatulence, heaviness in the stomach and other unpleasant symptoms, the diet should be stopped immediately.
Diet and pleasure. Are these concepts compatible?
For myself, I opened this diet 4 years ago during the preparation for the wedding. There was little time left, and I wanted to throw off those extra pounds and to be slim and beautiful. Therefore, I chose a fast diet with a promising result.
Since then, I have been waiting for the end of summer every year, in order not only to enjoy my favorite taste, but also to lose a few extra pounds. For five days of the diet, I always manage to get rid of 5.5-6 kg. And while the watermelon season continues, I arrange a fasting day for myself once a week.
There are days when it is very difficult to cope with the feeling of hunger. Then I allow myself to eat a few slices of rye bread during the day. And also during the diet I drink green tea and mineral water without gas.
This diet – just a fairy tale, it gives a great result in a short period of time. It does not require large physical and volitional efforts. The only disadvantage of it are frequent visits to the toilet, because watermelon has a strong diuretic effect.
How to choose not only tasty, but also healthy watermelon
When buying watermelon, it is better to stop your choice on a berry of medium size (8-9 kg). Smaller watermelons may be unripe, and larger ones, most likely stuffed with chemistry.
Watermelon skins can contain various chemicals and pathogenic bacteria, so you can not buy sliced watermelon. And before eating a watermelon, it should be well washed in running water.
In the natural environment watermelons ripen in late August – early September. This is the optimal time to enjoy this delicious berry, lose weight and cleanse your body with the help of a watermelon diet.
