Radical diet “500 kcal”: menu for 5 days4 428
In pursuit of thinness, women often use diets that do not suit them. This threatens not only breakdowns and reverse weight gain, but also serious health problems. You should not "sit down" on any diet, without gathering enough information and not understanding the nuances.
We will understand what suits whom:
On average, a person needs about 2000 kcal per day for a normal existence. Men a little more women - a little less. But tough diets suggest a sharp reduction in energy consumption for short periods of time.
Diet "500 kcal" - a reduction in the number of calories consumed up to 500-800 kcal per day. A dietitian prescribes it to people with a body mass index above 30, that is, with severe obesity.
These patients do not work other options for losing weight, so you have to resort to cardinal diets. A sharp reduction in calories is practically starvation.This is done so that the body goes into the mode of burning energy due to the existing fat and even muscles. In addition, in this state, the work of the hormonal system changes.
But there is a light version of this diet. EIf your body mass index is no more than 30, then only this variant of the diet is suitable for you:
2 days a week you “starve” for 500-800 kcal, and for 5 days you eat on a ration: a large amount of vegetables (raw, baked, boiled, steamed), fruits, whole grain bread, fish (to avoid poisoning, which time often happens, you should know how to choose fresh fish on the market or in the store), olive oil, natural dairy products.
Sweets and pastries are not completely excluded from the diet, but are reduced to one serving per day. Sports are not held in two fasting days, but cardiovascular exercises are mandatory on other days, otherwise there will be no point in dieting.
Below are the options for fasting days.
