Fasting days are not always fasting, and even not so much fasting as giving the body light food that will not be difficult to digest, but because of a lack of fat, our body will be forced to use its reserves.
Before we talk a little about unloading, I cannot help writing the following: It’s impossible to get carried away with fasting days so as not to upset the body’s delicate metabolic mechanism, which can be very difficult to establish. Ideally, it is better to consult with doctors about the feasibility of doing a day off for the body.
I very rarely use unloading, as I treat supporters of moderate nutrition. It is easier for me to restrain myself in eating large portions of sweet, fatty and fried daily, rather than planting myself for unloading.
The biggest drawback of these days is the temptation. When it has already been decided to abandon the one who is harmful to the figure, look at you from the nightstand, looking at you invitingly, to which you normally reacted yesterday, and today they are vital for you.
One has only to walk around the house, as all the temptations are in sight: sweets are smiling at you with colorful candy wrappers, a bun with poppy seeds looks out of a breadbasket (even at a distance of several meters its aroma is felt), a kettle whistled behind the wall – they will drink coffee. What will be the coffee? Will it be a cake or a slice of cake with a lush cream?
After an hour from the start of the unloading day, it turns into masochism – sensitivity to temptations passes all bounds. And you go to the kitchen, you start to get from the refrigerator all that you are used to, you ate yesterday and you will eat tomorrow. The appetite is brutal, again the fasting day failed, the mood was depressed from the very morning, and the strength of the will is zero.
Stars can and I can!
I have repeatedly heard in interviews with stars that in order to preserve their beautiful figures and beautiful appearance, they are forced to arrange fasting days for their bodies.
The variety of their easy days there is a large number – each star has its own tips and systems. Most often you can hear from stars about soup days for unloading.
Such soups must be vegetables, and the vegetables themselves are better to take from their own bed.
We can distinguish among the most useful vegetables for soups of the unloading day: onion, leek, green onion, white cabbage, red cabbage and cauliflower, kohlrabi cabbage.
Three main products for fasting days
If you take in general, then on a fasting day it is better to eat the food that dieticians advise. Choose any product for one day of unloading:
1. Buckwheat porridge. If you cook 1 cup of buckwheat, then this portion should be enough for 5 times to eat during the day. Together with buckwheat you can eat leafy vegetables (spinach, lettuce) and drink tea.
2. Kefir. The most suitable product for me to unload the day. During the day, you can drink no more than 1.5 liters of yogurt. You can choose low-fat kefir, and you can take 1.5 fat.
3. Chicken breast. This is the most delicious of the most popular products of the day. It can be supplemented with leafy vegetables, tea or water with lemon. Meat in finished form should be no more than 700 g.
