Though this weight loss method imposes restrictions on the menu, it is very effective. The usefulness of natural yogurt provokes slimmers to keep this diet for more than a week. This is fraught with exhaustion and metabolism slowing, so 7 days is the optimal time to restore the microflora and reduce the volume of the intestine.
The total time, which is recommended to allocate for this slimming diet is 20-25 days, since it requires a competent way of exiting it.
WHICH YOGURT TO CHOOSE
The main ingredient of the diet should be high-quality, better if produced in accordance with the state standards. 100 g of this product contains 2.8 g of protein, and 0.5% – 2.8% of fat. The CFU (colony-forming units) in this sour-milk drink should not be less than 107 units, and 104 units – if it is made on a yeast starter.
Bio-yogurt is made on another ferment. It contains bifidobacteria and acidophilus rods, which provide a positive effect over the digestive tract. The freshness of yogurt is an important aspect, since it loses most of the lactic acid bacteria by day 3-4. Yogurt with a long shelf life contains many preservatives to extend its shelf life.
You can diversify your diet with the following products:
- Oat flakes, buckwheat, boiled on the water;
- Low-fat beef and veal, white meat and fish;
- Prunes, dried apricots;
- Non-sweet pears, apples, citrus fruits;
- Vegetables (tomatoes, green beans, sauerkraut, cucumbers);
