The essence of the diet
The idea is that a person consumes only liquid foods, and in limited numbers. This creates a stressful situation for the body. As a result of such strict measures, excess weight disappears faster than with a frugal diet.
The drink diet has been practiced for a long time, although it is not known who invented it and when. Even the poet George Byron practiced such fasting so as not to gain weight, from which it is clear that the technique has existed for more than a century.
Rules and principles
- It is necessary to avoid solid foods, everything is consumed exclusively in liquid.
- The products are healthy, low calorie, without fat.
- Meals should be fractional - about 5 times a day.
- Physical activity should be reduced or canceled, as there may be increased weakness during a hunger strike.
- It is recommended to drink vitamins and fish oil so that the diet is balanced.
- It is necessary to monitor the condition of the stool, if constipation occurs, then you should drink laxatives.
- The diet should not last more than a month and be repeated no more than once a year. Although fasting days can be practiced more often.
What happens to the body day and week for up to 30 days
A monthly diet for alcohol is a serious test for the body and mind, so it is worth preparing in advance for what to expect, so that such sensations do not prove too shocking.
One of the most difficult. The body is under stress, the hunger attacks are very strong.
The third day
The turning point, when hunger begins to subside, but the side effects of fasting appear in the form of nausea, weakness and apathy. The mood worsens, sudden changes are possible, increased fatigue, drowsiness.
The body eventually rebuilds to the new conditions, but the state of health can be poor: due to the cleansing of the internal organs, stomach upsets and nausea occur. During this period, it is possible to lose weight up to 10 kg, due to which the skin relaxes.
There is constant or almost constant discomfort in the liver and kidneys, constipation may begin. If the constipation does not stop for more than 10 days, the hunger strike must be stopped.
If the stools have returned to normal, then the skin becomes lighter and clearer, although at this stage it may begin to peel due to lack of fat in the body. The feeling of hunger should almost disappear, but the discomfort can still be felt.
The result is not always immediate; at the beginning of the hunger strike, the body expresses its dissatisfaction with such severe restrictions. The mood and the situation will be bad, but if you endure it successfully, then from about the third day, the addiction will start. The body will adapt, the hunger will subside. For the first 7 days, the body is superficially cleansed, the internal organs are cleansed in the second week and in the second half of the month, the cells are cleansed.

In a striped diet, the days of consumption alternate with the days of vegetables. On vegetable days, you can eat solid foods from light meals (heavy vegetables such as potatoes are not allowed). On the one hand, such a diet is easier than drinking, but on the other hand, on less hungry days, there are more risks of harm.
This method of weight loss gives results in 7-10 kg lost in 3-7 days. You can not stay more than 15 days. The diet includes: cocoa, cooked in low-fat milk, unsweetened hot chocolate and drinking water. Drink up to 7 cups of cocoa or chocolate a day, as well as at least two liters of water. This is a serious mix for the body and such a diet has many contraindications.

In order not to regain the lost pounds, it is worth continuing to stay away from the most harmful and high-calorie foods: sweets, flour, fried and fatty.
How not to break the diet you drink

- It is worth pleasing yourself with gifts and more often to go to interesting events.
What to do in case of failure
If you have not yet been able to avoid a fault, then you need to start over. But, perhaps, for a start, it is worth trying to stay on a diet not for a whole month, but, for example, a week.
Because the weight does not leave
If the fast lasts more than three days and the weight does not decrease, then either something is wrong (it is worth reviewing the food consumed and to understand what is wrong with them), or there are some contraindications that need to be clarified with the doctor. Someone loses weight fast, someone needs more time to lose weight.
Physical activity during the diet
Physical activity during such a strict diet should be reduced - the body fatigue will already be high and sports are full of exhaustion. You can try to leave low loads and see your condition.

Side effects and possible consequences
If fasting follows all the rules, then the main side effect is stress during the restructuring of the body. It is advisable to reduce the extra loads during this period and try to relax as much as possible. For some people, after a month of walking, the stomach does not want to accept solid food immediately. You need to do this gradually, starting with soft dishes.

Pros and cons
The advantages of the diet are that it not only gets rid of extra pounds, but also cleanses the body of toxins. It rejuvenates a person externally and makes him healthier internally. Improves the function of the intestines, stomach and other internal organs. When you complete the full course of the diet, the body is cleansed at the cellular level.
The main disadvantage is that the hunger strike may not improve, but worsen the state of health. If the recommendations are not fully followed, chronic diseases can worsen. Lack of a balanced diet can lead to disorders in the body. In addition, such a diet is very stressful and can negatively affect the mental state.
The diet is contraindicated for people with chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, diseases of the liver and kidneys and cardiovascular system. It is essential to abstain from dieting for people with diabetes, pregnant women, prone to edema.
Reviews of doctors and nutritionists
Doctors and nutritionists are more negative about such extreme restrictions. A healthy lifestyle includes a fully balanced diet, with the mandatory inclusion of all essential vitamins and minerals in the diet, the consumption of protein and carbohydrates in the required amounts.
Any hunger strike is stressful for the body, causing, among other things, the release of hunger hormones and stress that destroy the body. Also, a hunger strike can accelerate the negative processes and diseases that exist in the body. It is very often necessary to treat those who have gone through such diets without consulting a doctor in advance.
If there are no strict contraindications to such a diet, the doctor will not prohibit it, but it is difficult to expect that he will recommend such a diet. At the same time, it is necessary to go to the doctor for an examination before proceeding to emergency weight loss.
