Before the onset of the swimming season, I somehow was not too puzzled by the question of losing weight. But they came with a friend Ira to the beach, she quickly undressed and ran to the water. I stopped in indecision: I did not want to undress.
I, as a rule, during the winter hibernation period, always gain weight. This winter is no exception. And if you still remember that there was a divorce with her husband, accompanied by stress, then it became clear solid weight gain. What, I will not say, so as not to frighten readers.
Difficult diet choice
After this visit to the beach, I decided that I would not go again until I dropped a few kilos. It was quite difficult for me to choose a diet. It seems everything is so tempting promise good results in a short time. I decided to stay on a diet on tomato juice.
I don’t know how right I am, but the store tomato juice seems to me the least harmful of all the packaged juices. Indeed, sugar is usually added to all fruit juices, even if it is stated that the product does not contain it.
How useful is tomato juice
Inquiring about the composition, I learned that a tomato is a whole storehouse of vitamins and mineral elements (among the latter such important ones as magnesium, sodium, calcium, and potassium). It consists of many useful acids that are directly responsible for the metabolic processes in the body.
At the same time, tomato juice is low in calories (its calorie content is 20 kcal, or on average two times lower than other juices). This makes it an ideal slimming product.
I chose a diet for 7 days. Every day you need to drink a liter of tomato juice, adding more protein foods or fruits. You can drink more tea or coffee without sugar, as well as mineral water without gas, for example, with lemon juice.
As for mineral water, I chose lightly carbonated water, since water without gas generally reminds me of tap water from a tap. I can not drink this, even for the sake of my ideal weight.
Now I will tell you what products I used on a tomato diet. Do not forget: plus 1 liter of tomato juice daily. I started on Monday. At first, I was delighted to decide that boiled potatoes were in addition to meat or fish. It turned out, horror of horrors, no! The first day was the hardest for me. So:
Monday. 150g potatoes (boiled or in uniform).
Tuesday. 500g of cottage cheese with the lowest percentage of fat.
Wednesday. 1kg of fruit (except bananas and grapes).
Thursday. 500g fried or boiled chicken without fat and skin.
Friday. 400g dried fruit, except figs, bananas, raisins. I modified this recommendation in favor of fresh fruits: apricots and peaches. They seemed to me more useful.
Saturday. 500g of cottage cheese with the lowest percentage of fat.
Sunday. 500g boiled fish.
I was worried that such an amount of tomato juice could have a laxative effect. But no, everything was in order. It was easiest to endure a chicken day. But on Friday it was especially hungry, because the fruits have a low calorie, although I ate them at least a kilogram.
Five days I managed to pass, overcoming the feeling of hunger. I dreamed of a Sunday fish day. But it turned out that Friday evening my friend Vika called me and said that she was passing through the city. And everything, we went to the cafe, so that with the fish day I did not work out.
I did not notice the visible effect of losing weight, although there was a plummet of about 2 kg. So I will try other diets. I will definitely share the results!
