Why is it necessary to follow a diet during the full moon and new moon?
During the period of the full moon and the new moon, atmospheric pressure and the movement of waters change. The full moon is the time of low tide, when the water seems to be compressed. The new moon is the time of the tide. Due to these external processes, changes occur in the distribution of water and trace elements in the human body.
During the full moon, water penetrates into the cells from the intercellular space, and during the new moon, the reverse process occurs. Knowing this and periodically following a diet during the above periods, a person can enhance the processes of moving water through the body, rinse and cleanse it, and also help break down fats in it and remove toxins from the body.
The full moon diet, based on fluid intake, allows you to remove excess fluid from the intercellular space and no longer accumulate it. It allows you to deal with fluid retention in the body.
The diet for the new moon, which combines liquids and vegetables, removes water, toxins from the human body, stimulates the processes of lipolysis (fat breakdown).
The advantage of such a one-time diet is that it breaks the usual diet, “shakes up” the body, and helps it to fully use the reserves of enzymes. Also, this type of diet is often easier for patients to accept than long-term courses. less sense of deprivation.
Each of the diets can be carried out in two modes: short (24 hours for the full moon and 36 hours for the new moon) and extended (up to 6 days). Choose what suits you best, for this listen to your body.
If you need to reduce weight by 1-2% (for example, by 70 kg – about 1 kg) or you are not overweight, you can limit yourself to a short diet option (2.5 days per month, for example, 1 day on a new moon or full moon) . Also, cleansing of the body can be carried out every month. If you are overweight, you can choose the extended full moon option (it is at this time that you can easily lose extra pounds) or the long new moon option, and you should also consider both options if you are significantly overweight. In the latter case, you will have to stick to the diet 12 days a month, but on the other days of the month (18 or 19 days) you can afford to eat whatever you want. But it is worth recalling that if you decide to carry out 2 diets per month, then you need to do this under the supervision of a doctor.
ATTENTION: the diet is contraindicated in diseases associated with metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus, blood clotting disorders).
Lose weight on a full moon
Now it’s time to talk about the 24 hour diet.
It begins at the end of the full moon, after dinner, and should continue for a full day. Only liquids should be on your menu. You can drink spring, boiled, mineral water. At this time, it is allowed to use freshly squeezed juices that have a diuretic effect, like water. It is best to juice fruits and vegetables that are in season. Preference is given to fruit juices, as they supply the body with natural sugars, vitamins and microelements, and most importantly, allow those who can hardly withstand fasting to feel the relative fullness of the stomach. If you drink only water, then in 24 hours the body will not experience a lack of nutrients. The lipid reserve in the body will support your energy balance.
Result: But you will feel relief, because you can lose from 250 grams to 1000 grams. , as well as get rid of edema and cleanse the body.
If you decide on an extended fasting course (6 days), then
3 days before fasting, and 2 days following this process (6 days in total, including the day of fasting), conduct a course of therapeutic nutrition with vegetables.
On day 1, eat only raw or cooked vegetables. In the next 2 days, as well as 2 days after fasting, eat only pineapples and mushrooms (you need to eat 4 r per day): pineapples have a diuretic effect and prevent the absorption of fats in the intestines. Mushrooms should be eaten boiled with spices or with a small amount of unrefined olive oil (first cold pressed), as they are low in calories. In addition, mushrooms contain protein, which is necessary for nutrition and normal muscle function in our body.
Such a diet should not last longer than 6 days, including the day of fasting. For the first time, you can limit yourself to 3 days. For example, 1 day of raw and cooked vegetables, then 1 day of fasting, and a day of pineapple-mushroom diet. You can also consider the option of 1 day before or after fasting.
The result in this case will be amazing, as you will cleanse your body and reduce weight by 1-3 kg, depending on the duration of the diet.
We lose weight in the new moon
If you choose a diet on the new moon – 36 hours, then
it is necessary to start fasting at 18.00 on the eve of the new moon and continue until 6-7 in the morning of the day following the new moon.
The menu should include vegetable soups and vegetable broths of your choice (can be combined), eat 4-5 times a day. Soup can be made with your favorite vegetables (eg carrots, potatoes, bell peppers, beans, roots). Vegetable broths have a diuretic effect. They also supply the human body with minerals, which is useful for us. For a more effective effect on weight loss, it is better to limit yourself to broths, although soups contain fiber, which dulls the feeling of hunger, so soups are more suitable for those who cannot tolerate hunger.
As a result of such a diet, an intensive washing of the body and a weight loss of about 500 grams will be carried out. And if you use only vegetable broths, then weight loss can reach up to 1000 grams.
If you fast on a new moon for 6 days, then 3 days before the new moon and 2 following it, you eat exclusively raw or boiled vegetables. But it is worth recalling that, as in the case of a diet for 6 days on a full moon, you are guided by the needs of your body. No need to turn the diet into torture. Please note that the diet should not last longer than 6 days.
The result of this process is a weight loss of 1-3 kg, depending on the duration of the diet.
Anabolic conditions are determined by a high background of estrogens (these are female sex hormones) and increased appetite during this period of the monthly cycle compared to the usual one. The hormone progesterone, along with estrogens, actively released during this phase, suppresses the usual inhibitory effect of estrogens on appetite. If you give yourself the freedom to “eat as you really want” during this period, then you can “eat” those extra pounds of fat. After menopause, when estrogen production stops, most women quickly gain weight. This is due to the fact that the appetite increases (estrogen no longer suppresses it), and most of the fair sex do not want to restrain themselves in eating, since tasty food gives sustained pleasure. In the first half of the cycle, natural anabolic conditions are not created. This period is best used to combat excess “fat”, because. violence on the body when we tame our appetite will not be as strong as in the second half of the cycle, so during this period it is necessary to carry out catabolic training.
To form a diet to create catabolic conditions, you must consider the following rules:
1. Meals should be 4-5 times a day.
2. Each meal should have no more than 20 grams of mono and disaccharides. Foods containing more than 10% mono and disaccharides (except fruits) can only be consumed at separate meals.
3. 2 hours before training (rehearsals and other forms of physical activity) do not consume animal proteins (only vegetable proteins).
4. 3 hours after training, you can not eat food, only tea or infusions from herbs, rose hips, mineral water and specially carbohydrate-mineral drinks.
5. After a 3-hour partial fast, you must first eat vegetables and fruits, raw berries, a normal meal is possible only after 2 hours.
6. Ensure that all foods included in the diet are consumed, especially vegetables, fruits and protein foods.
7. To preserve the biological value and increase the percentage of digestibility of food components, dishes should be prepared that are sparing in culinary techniques (leakage, short cooking until cooked).
8. There should not be any spices, spices, spicy and smoked foods in the diet, so as not to stimulate the appetite and not expose yourself to temptations.
9. The time of the last meal should be no later than 3 hours before bedtime.
In conclusion, it should be recalled that it is necessary to include in the daily diet a variety of vegetables, herbs, roots, herbs and fruits, berries in sufficient quantities (vegetables, herbs – up to 450 gr., And fruits, berries – up to 300 gr.). From products of animal origin – cottage cheese, if you are vegetarians, then fish, boiled beef or poultry. The main source of starch can be potatoes, rice, buckwheat, oatmeal and rye bread. Honey, jam, vegetables and fruits supply the right amount of mono- and disaccharides. Sugar and confectionery are recommended to be excluded from the diet if possible.
