By following the water diet routine it is possible to lose up to 1 pound per day. However, this diet is not recommended to be undertaken often – stick within a couple of days per month. There are a lot of additional benefits to it, as well as cons but only if you’re going overboard with it. To start with, this is a great way to cleanse your organism from toxins, because you will release everything bad you had inside yourself once this diet is finished. If you’re attempting this diet for the first time, make sure to do some preparations before rushing into it as you might be shocked with the intensive hunger sensation, which is quite difficult to bear with if you haven’t attempted it yet. To make up for this difference, try to gradually reduce your meals up to the starting point of the diet.
Let’s take a closer look at what this diet looks like. I will also suggest a simple routine for you that have proven to be more than efficient for me on a monthly basis.
For breakfast, consume a large cup of water, tea or natural juice. During this diet you can eat a lot of fruits, as much as you can get into yourself – feel free to stuff yourself up with these. During the period before lunch, you should consume at least one glass of water, tea or natural juice. If you haven’t eaten yet, now is time to eat some fruits and it’s best to mix these up a bit, just so you don’t get bored with the same fruit. Depending on the season, your choices might be limited, but it’s best to stick with tropical fruits, grapes, watermelons, apples etc.
Before and after lunch it’s recommended to take a large cup of water. The menu for lunch consists of fresh raw vegetables with addition of vinegar, olive oil, lemon dressing and spices to match your desires. You can eat any kind of raw and conserved vegetables: asparagus, artichokes, celery, green salad, carrots, and onions, corn… try to eat those ingredients you fancy the most.
Ending the day
For a lot of beginners, ending the day while following the water diet routine is rather difficult, so it’s important to take gradual steps and not force anything. For supper, you should consume another cup of water, tea or natural juice, along with some milk (preferably yoghurt) and another piece of fruit.
Dinner should be as light as possible, so drink yet another cup of fluids and eat some lean cooked meat. This should help you to get over the intense sensation of hunger you’ve might be having by now and you won’t suffer internally by any means. Fish is most desirable here, but only if it is fresh.
Obviously, the diet as such is not as difficult to follow, but in the real world you might be having some motivational issues. I’ve managed to mix things up to make things more interesting for me and I hope that the above routine works as favorably as it has worked for me.
