The essence of diet
The main component of the menu are oranges (or grapefruits) and eggs in various combinations. This minimizes carbohydrate intake. In addition, due to the lack of salt, the body “dumps” excess water. With a long-term version of the diet, from the second week the diet is supplemented with boiled chicken or turkey, vegetables, low-fat cheese, moproducts and cottage cheese. All these products are low in calories, but they allow you to diversify the menu, so psychologically the diet is easier to tolerate than mono-diets.
Why does it work
Slimming on eggs and oranges is effective due to the unique properties of the main components of the diet.
An egg is a real storehouse of nutrients and microelements, therefore, during weight loss, the body receives everything necessary for proper functioning. First of all, we are talking about protein, and, very easily digestible. In addition, the chemical composition of the egg includes glucose, enzymes and vitamins A, E, D and group B, not to mention iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc and phosphorus. The content of cholesterol in the egg is “balanced” by lecithin, which prevents its accumulation in the body.
Orange is a true treasury of microelements and natural vitamins. Sodium, iodine, fluorine, copper, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium – this is not a complete list. In addition, the sunny fruit gives us a daily intake of vitamin C and is rich in vitamins A, E, B1, B2, B9, PP. Oranges also contain a huge number of amino acids – organic compounds that underlie all the proteins of the human body.
Another advantage of an orange is its high content of dietary fiber – in other words, fiber. Once in the stomach, it creates a feeling of satiety, and also stimulates digestion. As a result, the slagged body begins to rapidly get rid of a variety of toxins, which also contributes to weight loss.
Also included in the orange are limonoids. These are special phytochemicals that have a healing effect on all organs and systems of the body, and also block the development of malignant tumors.
And finally, the most valuable property of an orange for those who are going to fight extra weight is its low calorie content. As a medium-sized fruit, only 65 to 90 calories. At the same time, this fruit gives a feeling of satiety at least for an hour at 2-3.
The rules for a long (from one week to four weeks) egg-orange diets are simple. Every day for breakfast you need to eat half of the solar fruit and one or two eggs, cooked soft-boiled. The remaining two meals should also begin with citrus to cause a decrease in the volume of the stomach.
In addition, there are several important nuances:
- Per day use 2-3 liters of water. Milk, tea and coffee without added sugar are also allowed.
- Salt is prohibited. Condiments and spices are allowed.
- Fats and oils in any form are excluded. If you are cooking vegetables, then do it on water, not on broth.
- In the additional use of vitamins is not necessary – the body will receive them in sufficient quantity.
- In case of violation of the diet should return to the first day of the diet and start the course again.
And finally, another very important point. Any version of weight loss on citrus is associated with limiting physical exertion. For a while, give up power and aerobic training and devote time to pilates or fast walking.
As with any nutritional system, weight loss on eggs and oranges has contraindications. This option is absolutely not suitable for people with high cholesterol, pregnant and lactating mothers, those who suffer from any chronic diseases.
In addition, both long-term (gentle) and short (strict) versions of this diet are contraindicated for allergies.
Egg and orange diet for three to five days
A short version of the diet can be used for at least three and a maximum of five days. You can lose up to four kilograms during this time. However, nutritionists warn that this is mainly due to the loss of water, and therefore most of the weight lost will return when normal nutrition is resumed.
The daily menu consists of six eggs and six oranges per day. It is necessary to break them into six meals. Eggs can either drink raw, or cook hard-boiled or soft-boiled. From drinks during a tight diet is better to use mineral water without gas or green tea without added sugar.
