I learned about this miracle diet when I traveled a lot in Europe. In some countries, where I came, I was most surprised by the locals. In one of the countries I liked, there were very beautiful and slender girls. Of course, I could not get past without asking some of them how they achieved such a result.
From my youth I was overweight, but it was not something disastrous, it did not stop me from living my full life. The fact that I decided to change my forms was something like inspiration. I lost 25 pounds. The first result was 5 pounds in 2 days, which I was very surprised! But it was not a systematic reset. What was the essence of this diet, you will learn further? I can only say that when I share with someone the story of my diet, they begin to envy me!
The basis of my diet is red wine and fruit
I don’t know where the name “Mediterranean Diet” came from. From personal experience, I can say that they eat wrong. What’s the secret? Remember or write down the rules. You must replace all desserts with fruit! Several types of fruit per day will provide additional vitamins, as well as fructose.
You should not buy artificially produced fructose in stores – it is intended for people suffering from diabetes and other similar diseases. It will not benefit your body. It is much better to eat apples, bananas, grapes, pomegranates, and other fruits. Remember that in one sitting you will not be able to eat as many fruits as even a bar of chocolate. In this case, you will feel full and light, and will also keep your teeth healthy. The average time to lose 10 pounds with this diet is about 7-10 days.
In addition to consuming fruits daily, you should include olive oil and other sources of fat in your diet, in addition to fatty acids; yogurt and cheese, fish and poultry. Now lovers of buns will rejoice! Unlike other diets, the Mediterranean does not require the rejection of white bread and pasta, and also refuses potatoes. Do not forget about beans, they are always useful to eat. But! You will have to give up chicken eggs and significantly reduce the consumption of animal meat. If you manage to adhere to all these rules, you can increase the average time to lose 10 pounds to 7-10 days.
Let’s move on to the most important – red wine. If you have a penchant for alcoholism or you live in Muslim countries, such a diet is not suitable for you, because every day you should drink 1 glass of red wine for dinner. Both doctors and scientists talk about the benefits of this drink in acceptable doses: wine reduces the likelihood of myocardial infarction, and also contains resveratrol, antioxidant, and antimutagen.
With its help, the aging rate of the body decreases and life expectancy increases. These are useful qualities that affect the body, but how can wine help in weight loss? – reduces cholesterol, regulates the functioning of the intestinal flora. The antioxidant capacity of red wine is 20 times higher than that of vitamin E. No other alcohol in this can compare with red wine. Piceatannol – prevents the formation of new fat cells. If you have a question about how to choose the right wine in the store, I can share a few tips that I use: the bottle should have enough information about the manufacturer, country of origin, grape variety, year of manufacture, etc.
Pay attention to design, there should not be more than 3 types of colors, strict style is what captivates. The presence of medals and reviews from critics and experts. Usually in one glass of red wine, 0.11g of protein, 0.3g of fructose, 190mg of potassium, 0.69mg of iron. Follow the rule – no more than 150-200 g per day, otherwise, you risk harming yourself. Red wine contains ethanol, which refers to poisons and narcotic substances. I was able to reduce the average loss time 10 pounds to 6 days. I noticeably get in shape, drink wine and eat tastily.
