Citrus Diet is one of the best known and most effective fruit diet. Keeping with this diet needs a strong will and perseverance and the results can really surprise you. What are the benefits of citrus diet and general involvement of citrus fruits in the daily diet?
Mild citrus diet
If in your daily diet, include oranges, tangerines, limes and grapefruit – you can lose a few pounds without holding some special diet. It is already proven that citrus fruit is great at burning fat, because it contains enzymes that stimulate digestion. In addition, it contains vitamin C, who speeds up metabolism and eliminates toxins from the body.
Strict citrus diet
First of all it should be noted that strict citrus diet is different from “ordinary” citrus diet by limitations in the choice of ingredients. The advantage of this diet is that you can lose weight from 12 to 17 kg per month. Of course, this result is not as common, but women can lose weight, on average, about 11 kg a month, which is quite a figure but constantly keeping this diet is not suggested. Because this diet is fairly demanding and restrictive is not a recommended for implementation for more than 5 to 7 days. After that you can make a break 3 days and you may repeat the cycle.
Example daily menu
The menu for one day looks like this:
- Glass of freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit in the morning;
- For lunch – one grejprfrut and two kiwis;
- For dinner – 2 boiled eggs;
- Before going to bed you can drink low-fat yogurt (2.5 dl);
During the citrus diet, you should always drink herbal or green tea (which contributes to weight loss) or lemonade without sugar. Once every 3 days for breakfast you can eat one egg with a piece of bread and low fat cheese.
Limit is in case you have problems with your stomach – this diet is not for you. Also, if you have problems with hypoglycemia … forget about this diet.
