Seven-color flower helps to lose weight
The 7-petal diet is a variation of the popular "six-point diet" from Swedish doctor Anna Johanson. This technique involves the alternation of carbohydrate and protein foods that raise the tone and cause the body to look for additional sources of energy, gradually spending the accumulated fat.
To do this, during the day the diet is limited to one type of product. This approach allows you to lose from 3 to 5 kg, and in the case of re-passing methods - up to 10 kg. The duration of the diet is 7 days.
Lose weight by playing
Anna Juhanson, being not only a good nutritionist, but also an inventive psychologist, introduced into the rules of the diet a motivating game. Its essence is to visually show the importance of each day passed.
To do this, those who want to lose weight are encouraged to create a paper with seven petals from paper (draw or print), which symbolize every day diet.
Paper crafts work on the principle of tear-off calendar.Torn off at the end of each day, the petal symbolizes another step towards the goal. To hang such a flower is recommended on the refrigerator as a reminder.
To achieve the maximum effect, it is required to strictly follow the recommendations developed:
- It is necessary to completely eliminate from the diet of sweet and flour products, as well as alcoholic beverages.
- During the day, it is required to consume at least 1-1.5 liters of liquid (water or green tea). Coffee should either be completely eliminated or its consumption reduced to one cup during the day.
