Many people are familiar with the situation when extra pounds must be dropped literally in a matter of days on the eve of some important event: dates, photo shoots, ceremonies. Regrettably, in this case, standard diets are not helpers – they do not give such a swift result. Therefore, in a similar situation, the body will have to arrange a serious shake-up and resort to one of the express diets. They help to lose weight as quickly as possible. As a result, it will be possible to easily button your favorite jeans, appear on the beach in a bold swimsuit or look “one hundred percent” in the photo.
How does the diet
The basis of the express diet is a significant reduction in caloric intake. As you know, the approximate daily calorie intake for the fair sex is 1600-2000 kcal. This indicator takes into account many factors, the most important of which is physical activity. An express diet also provides for a sharp decrease in calorie intake – you will have to consume less than 1000 calories per day. Therefore, express diets are considered a rather extreme way to lose weight.
The duration of the express diet
The duration of the express diet, as a rule, ranges from three to seven days. During this time, you can get rid of 2-3 kilogram. However, those who can boast of will power, managed to lose up to six pounds. At the same time, nutritionists treat these systems with caution and do not recommend sitting on express diets for more than fourteen days – this is fraught with serious health problems, starting with malfunctions of the gastrointestinal tract and up to anemia.
In addition, there is another argument in favor of the minimum duration of express diets. The thing is that with time the weight just stops going away – in other words, the system stops working. The reason for this is a metabolic disorder, which is unavoidable if the diet remains unbalanced for a long time. And since express diets do not provide the body with enough nutrients and vitamins for normal functioning, they should be used with extreme caution.
Before the start of the express diet should take into account two important nuances.
First, you must understand that the plumb line that occurs due to a fast diet is caused by the removal of excess water from the body. Fat accumulations themselves, if they decrease, are extremely insignificant. Moreover, kilograms do not leave forever – if you do not continue to carefully monitor the diet and increase physical activity, the “social savings” will return.
Secondly, rapid diets often lead to a decrease in muscle mass. This is due to the fact that the body literally “eats itself” due to the lack of nutrients for energy production.
General rules express diets
But those who still decided to “give battle” to extra pounds should remember the basic rules of any express diet:
- During rapid weight loss, it is necessary to take a vitamin-mineral complex.
- If you have reduced calories, then drink more fluids.
- Combine a diet with water treatments, massage, moderate exercise. At the same time it is important not to overdo it – the body and so hard.
- Exit from the diet should be slow.
- So that the lost kilograms did not return, taking friends with you, choose yourself a competent power supply system.
