I did not look at the exact statistics (I don’t know if it is at all), but it seems to me that the following types of fasting days are most popular with us: kefir, cottage cheese, apple, vegetable.
As a big chocolate lover, I was interested in a chocolate fasting day.
What kind of chocolate is suitable for a fasting day?
In general, the word chocolate comes from the Aztec chocolatl, which means a drink made from cocoa beans, and literally, bitter water. Thus, the real chocolate is black.
It is made from cocoa liquor, cocoa butter and powdered sugar. The greater the percentage of grated cocoa in chocolate, the more bitter is the taste and the brighter the flavor.
It is dark chocolate that is good for health and for weight loss. Besides the fact that it improves the functioning of the heart, blood vessels, brain, it also improves mood and contributes to the production of serotonin – a known hormone of happiness!
Therefore, for a fasting day, you need chocolate with a high cocoa content – at least 70%. Milk chocolate is less beneficial to health, because it contains less cocoa and more sugar. Therefore, in this case we will have to give it up.
Variants of fasting days
There were a lot of ways to conduct chocolate fasting days! I will give the most popular ones. I’ll start with the toughest.
The daily ration is freshly green tea without sugar and any additives (in any quantity) and 100 g of chocolate.
In this case, the fasting day looks like this. You can eat 100 grams of chocolate and drink 1.5-2 liters of raw water.
This option impresses me with the presence of coffee, because I love him! But there are some difficulties. First, for the day you need to stretch not 100, but only 80 g of chocolate. Secondly, coffee should be sugar free, with low fat milk, and most importantly – you can drink it only 3 hours after eating chocolate.
This method is the easiest. Meals during the fasting day remain familiar. There is only one condition: you need to eat 3 times a day (namely, 15 minutes before lunch, between lunch and dinner, 15 minutes before dinner) no more than 10 g of chocolate (i.e. 30 g per day).
This method is based on the fact that such a scheme of chocolate will reduce appetite. Personally with me, this trick does not work, I always want after that to eat meat and in a normal volume))
– If you have any health problems, and even more so with the liver, before you arrange a chocolate discharge day, you need to consult with your doctor.
– To spend such days should be no more than 1 time per week.
– Chocolate should not chew, and dissolve. This is a more correct way to use it, and a more effective way – it satisfies hunger better.
Have you ever experimented with chocolate fasting days?
