The oatmeal diet has been around for quite some time. Its use allows you not only to adjust your weight, but also to get rid of a large number of extra pounds. In order to ensure its effectiveness, you need to try to sustain it at least for a short time.
Essence of the diet
Oatmeal weight loss system is designed to get rid of excess weight, as well as cleansing a person losing weight from those harmful substances (eg, slags) that have accumulated in the body. To comply with this diet you need to show both endurance and iron will.
The duration of the oatmeal diet depends on how many extra pounds you want to lose. The minimum period of compliance with this program of weight loss should be 7-10 days, the maximum – one month. Estimated weight loss in one week should be from three to five kilograms.
The authors of the oatmeal method of weight loss are advised to pre-purge with rice, although you can not do this. The menu of this mono-diet is quite simple. You need to eat porridge, which must be cooked in water and on nothing else.
And it should be borne in mind that during cooking the addition of salt, oil or sugar is not permissible. If you plan to follow a diet on oatmeal for no more than two weeks, then your diet should be limited to only porridge and plenty of liquid, which should be drunk no earlier than 1.5 hours before meals.
In that case, if you want to stick to a diet for a month, then you need to add berries, seeds, skim milk and kefir, dried fruits and seeds to the porridge. You can also eat any fruit as a snack, except for all grapes and bananas.
How I lost weight on the oatmeal diet
Oatmeal diet, I chose not by chance. Many of my friends used this technique, which allows them to lose weight with health benefits. I want to immediately note that I did not need a big weight loss (I only needed to adjust it), so I decided that I would comply with it for no longer than one week.
The process of cleansing the body, which is advised to carry out nutritionists, I did not commit, because I thought that I just do not need it. The first two days seemed to me just unbearable, because the whole day I had to eat only tasteless oatmeal.
After a couple of days, I seem to have even become accustomed to such a diet, although it was very difficult to manage without dessert, since I am a big sweet tooth. Weight loss began to occur only after the third day of dieting.
By the fifth day of dieting, it was noted that two extra pounds were gone without a trace, and I decided that my weight completely suits me, and the diet was completed.
I think if I continued to follow the diet and on, then the weight loss would definitely be 3-5 kilograms (this was indicated in the description of the diet). But since I completed its observance earlier, respectively, the loss of two kilograms of excess weight is considered a positive result from this diet.
