Many overweight people, or just wanting to slightly adjust the figure, have high hopes for numerous diets. Discussing the pros and cons of all kinds of diets is not worth it now, since there are a huge number of such nutritional schemes. However, many nutritionists agree that the longer and more delicate the diet, the longer it allows you to lose weight.
A long-term diet is considered as one of the most effective ways to correct weight. A long diet helps to lose up to ten kilograms in two months. The daily calorie intake for a long-term diet should not exceed one thousand six hundred calories.
The basic rule of a long-term diet is that all foods and drinks allowed by the diet must always be fresh. Separate rules exist for drinks. You can and should drink as much as you want. Water should not be mineral and carbonated. A long-term diet categorically excludes alcohol. The basis of a long-term diet is a specific regimen for drinking water and fruits.
