As the name implies, the main product of the diet is apples. Such a diet is suitable for vegetarians and people who, for health reasons, diets high in protein foods are contraindicated.
In order not to hate the main product of the diet forever for a week of weight loss, use several varieties of this fruit that vary in taste. But you should not take sweet red fruits with loose pulp – in such fruits there is a lot of sugar and few acids, which means that they are not very suitable for weight loss.
Stop choosing thick and juicy. The varieties Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Matsu, Antonovka, Ginger Gold, Papirovka, Early Geneva, Melba, Sinap are ideal for achieving the maximum result of the diet. However, if at your disposal will be other varieties, do not despair, for a diet you can take absolutely any.
The duration of the course of weight loss will be 7 days. And this week you can get rid of 5 to 7 kg of excess weight. And a week later, you’ll lose a little bit of heavy and fatty foods, which will give impetus to the subsequent weight loss.
Pros and cons of diet
The main plus weight loss on apples: simplicity and budget. All sorts of apples are available all year round. Find them in a big city or a tiny village is not difficult.
In addition, they are useful and do not overload any of the body systems.
They are full of vitamins, and pectin will not allow the intestines to forget how to work. During the period of losing weight, you will not earn avitaminosis or intestinal atony.
Cons at the apple diet too. Firstly, mono-diets can not be practiced often, otherwise you can earn a metabolic disorder, because the menu of this diet is quite ascetic, with a minimum of calories, which means your body will inevitably go into energy saving mode. And if at the end of the apple discharge you immediately begin to eat as before, the reverse weight gain is guaranteed.
Secondly, it can be an impossible task to stand even one day on apples alone. If you notice an increase in appetite, flatulence or abdominal pain after consuming the fruit in large quantities, then this diet does not suit you.
Like any other mono-diet, losing weight on apples cannot be called an option for a healthy and balanced diet. Despite a sufficient amount of vitamins and fiber, they do not provide the body with the necessary amount of fat and protein. Long-term mono-diet (more than 7 days) can lead to exhaustion of the body, the development of gastrointestinal diseases, loss of strength and even depression.
Having stood a week on apples and water, you will be pleasantly surprised by the results – on average, you manage to lose weight by 6-7 kilograms.
The exact result depends on how much you weighed at the beginning of the diet. People with a large supply of excess weight in three weeks can lose 20-25 kg. If you need to lose just a couple of kilos to the cherished ideal, the apple diet will become your faithful helper in this.
The classic mono-diet menu includes only apples and clean water without gas. If such a menu seems too strict, it is permissible to add rye crackers, low-fat kefir, boiled chicken breast, rice, carrots to it.

A seven-day diet suggests this distribution of foods:

- 4 day: apples and carrots;
- 5-th day: apples, carrots and beets;

A diet for three days offers meals on this schedule:
- 1 Day: 1 kg of apples.
- 2 Day: 1,5 kg of apples.
- 3 Day: 1 kg of apples.
This is an option for the most persistent, and it can be repeated no more than once every six months.
Kefir-apple diet involves nutrition on the principle of “three through three.” For three days you eat only apples, for three days you drink nonfat kefir and eat them again for three more days.
This is a “shock” version of the discharge, which effectively acts during the “plateau effect” (if the weight freezes at one mark in spite of all your efforts). Remember that during the kefir-apple diet it is important not to overstrain, as a poor diet in itself will be a lot of stress for the body. Get plenty of rest these days, do yoga or meditation, putting off active physical exertion for another time.
If you prefer a slow, but safe option for losing weight, a non-standard diet will suit you. At the same time, you eat as usual (of course, without the fanatical consumption of cakes, soda and fried potatoes with beer), but replace one of the meals with apples. It is best to replace breakfast or dinner, and eat tight at lunch so as not to experience the pangs of hunger in the evening. It is not necessary to have dinner before 18.00, calculate the time of the last meal, depending on when you fall asleep. Dinner should be three hours before bedtime.
And so that in the morning there was no bloating, in the evening eat not fresh, but baked.
For the month of apple slimming minus the scales will be about 5 kilogram.
What to refuse
At the time of the diet should be abandoned:
- Fat: lard, mayonnaise, salsa sauce, butter, margarine, coconut oil – all this must be excluded.
- Carbonated sugary drinks, alcohol, fruit juice with sugar, sweetened coconut milk.
- Pork, beef, lamb, prepared meat products, chicken with skin.
- Fat milk, sour cream, cream cheese, high fat hard cheeses.
How to get out of the diet, so as not to harm yourself
Regardless of how many days you lose weight, it is important to organize a return to the daily diet.
The exit from the apple diet involves the gradual introduction into the diet of vegetables, dairy products, then cereals and protein foods. Reviews of thinner indicate that after a week on apples you get used to eat a little, and the craving for fatty, spicy, fried in large portions is noticeably weakened.
What to do when you break
Breakdowns on this diet do not mean a return to the beginning, as in the Japanese or chemical diet. After eating something forbidden, continue the diet as if nothing had happened, and do not try to reproach yourself: the feeling of guilt can provoke new breakdowns.
Quick and effective weight loss – isn’t that what we dream about? And the best helpers in this will be diets using low-calorie foods. Such as apples, cabbage, egg white, kefir, etc. Mono-diet based on the use of one type of product, stand out in the classification of weight loss systems. Of course, they are very effective, but you have to be careful with them, because people with poor health can do more harm than good.
During periods of increased stress on the body, we need a complete and varied diet. So such a diet is contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation. Do not practice it and adolescents, people with chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and those who lead a very lively lifestyle with high energy consumption (manual workers, athletes).
