Pineapple diet: truth and fiction
As its name suggests, the pineapple dietassumes the use of these fruits for food - several times a day, at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The simplest version of it is unloading mono-diet, designed for one day. Pineapple "unloading", in the absence of contraindications, can be carried out weekly. At the same time during the day it is allowed to eat only a kilogram of pineapple, dividing it into four meals. Short-term pineapple diet allows you to lose 500-700 grams of weight at a time. Regularly using this method, you can practically painlessly bring yourself into shape in a few months. There is also a lighter version of this one-day diet: in addition to pineapple, it is allowed to drink juice from this fruit (one liter), which should be drunk in small portions throughout the day.
The second option is the protein-pineapple diet: on it you can "sit" for two weeks. Eat meat, mushrooms and vegetables (except for starchy potatoes and sweet carrots). Pineapple can be eaten separately or combined with them - for example, in salads. As a dressing, it is allowed to use black pepper and lemon juice. Pineapple with this diet can eat up to 700 grams per day, low-fat meat - no more than 300. The number of other products is not so important, the only rule: you can not use any oil, even vegetable, for cooking. Having sustained this diet for two weeks, you can get rid of four or five kilograms of excess weight.
There is also a five-day diet option forpineapple: its diet is quite varied. The rule here is one - a pineapple must be present in every meal: for breakfast and dinner it is supposed to eat it 100 grams, and at lunch - 150. Nutrition with this diet is three meals a day. At breakfast, except pineapple, you can eat a dried slice of bread and a slice of cheese, or two eggs, or 150-200 grams of boiled ham. Another option, extremely tasty and useful - oatmeal with pineapple: muesli (2 tablespoons) is poured with natural yogurt, without flavors and preservatives, and is filled with pineapple puree (50-100 grams of each product). The lunch options are as follows: 200 grams of boiled meat or 300 - low-fat fish and a dish of vegetables (salad, caviar or carrot salad dressed with vegetable oil). Finally, at dinner you can eat fruit salad or stewed vegetables, or drink 0.5 liters of natural yogurt - in this case it completely replaces food, except pineapple. This pineapple diet is quite diverse, but low in calories. Nevertheless, it is tolerated quite easily and there are usually no observed attacks of hunger in those who "sit" on it. If desired, it can be repeated, extending to ten days - however only if you feel good. This pineapple diet (the reviews confirm this) will allow you to "dump" from five to eight kilograms.
A diet on pineapple, as well as most this fruit,For a long time attributed unique properties. They were associated with the ability of the substances contained in it to break down fats. Based on pineapple, a herbal preparation "Bromelain" was created containing a natural enzyme derived from its pulp. The annotation to him says that he is able to improve metabolism, to break down fats and proteins. From hand to hand, the recipe for "magic" alcohol (!) Tincture on pineapple, supposedly effectively struggling with excess weight: it is advised to drink a tablespoon a quarter of an hour before eating. There are, as it is said, everything is possible - pineapple tincture will successfully smooth out any errors in nutrition, just in this case you will need to take an extra spoon of a miracle remedy.
