Incredibly, but the fact is obesity, already recognized"A disease of civilization," for some reason, almost bypasses Asia. Agree, a Chinese with excess weight - a fairly rare picture. Of course, we are very different - and the external appearance, and the climate, and philosophy - all different. But, perhaps, the main difference is the national cuisine and the attitude to food. Remember the old Russian proverb: "Shchi yes porridge - our food"? Exactly. Asians, the main food products are rice, fresh vegetables and seafood. In addition, they have been accustomed to moderation in food since childhood - well, it is not accepted there "from the belly". Maybe this is the whole secret? Let's try to understand. And help us in this Chinese diet. It has several varieties. Consider the two most popular.
Diet "60 - 90 days"
The first diet option is the easiest and most enjoyable. However, this diet also has one huge drawback - it is "long-playing". That is, it is designed for two or three months. The diet is very well balanced and easily tolerated - so you do not have to starve. The menu is scheduled for one week. Then everything repeats in a circle. At the heart of the diet lie mainly products of vegetable origin and sea fish. Surprisingly, unlike most others, the Chinese diet allows the use of potatoes. It is alleged that with this combination of products, it goes "for good". Particular attention is paid by Asian nutritionists to mineral water. It is believed that it helps to cleanse the intestines, and also has a health and even a rejuvenating effect. In addition to the amount of liquid that is indicated in the diet, three times a week, two glasses of chilled water should be drunk immediately after awakening, on an empty stomach. In order not to get confused, it is recommended to set certain days of the week for this procedure. For example, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
