The biggest nuance of any proper spring diet is this: a person using it must know the reason behind it: it is that now your body has been drained by winter, or rather, it lacked the necessary vitamins and trace elements over the past three months. Therefore, any restriction in food can lead to unpleasant consequences. But how can one lose pounds when they need to get their health back on track?

Light food: vegetables, veal, chicken, fish, kefir, cottage cheese.
Heavy foodpork, lamb, beef, refractory cheeses, spicy, salted, smoked foods.
Kefir is our friend!
Even during the ancient times, people and online ukraine dating have noted the useful aspects of kefir. Nutritionists have developed many diets on the basis of kefir, including medical ones. In combination with fruit, such a diet is well suited for spring.
Such a diet implies that one must consume 1–1.5 liters of kefir per day, adding to it another kilogram of fruits. This kefir diet should go on for no longer than 6 days.
If you are getting sick of kefir – alternate it with regular meals, but with some restrictions. Your diet may look like this:
- 1 day - steamed vegetables and one and a half liters of kefir;
- 2 day - 100 g of broiled chicken and the same one and a half liters of kefir;
