Spring is over my dear dieters and again it’s this time of the year when we should get our bodies in shape.
Get fit and ready for the bathing suit season. Normally this should sound great and of high spirits, but probably it sounds really horrifying for some and regretfully sad for others. How so? Here’s how:
Many of us have been piling on pounds all winter. Then spring came and totally expected we made the, mostly wishful, spring resolution to shed those pounds. But yet here we are, in the beginning of the summer, still weighing as much as we weighed in the beginning of the spring.
Summer, summer, summer – I love it. If you love it too and when you hear “summer” the only thing you imagine is the sea side with its beaches, sands, water and of course lots of people in skimpy swim-wear outfits that are showing more than they are hiding, then you are from the lucky ones who are perfectly body shaped.
You don’t need to shed pounds and the only thing you want is to get into one of those skimpy bathing suits and enjoy summer by the beach (or by the swimming pool). Perfect! I wish I was like you 😉
If you do feel horrified then you are from those people who have decided to lose weight no matter what – despite cost, time and efforts.
I admire such determined people!
And luckily I have to offer you a free diet plan that is less time consuming but not without efforts. Yes, it does require effort and please don’t act surprise! There is no other way – you can’t just lie down on the couch and expect to lose pounds.
The pre-holiday diet is perfect for fast weight loss. Quickly shed a few pounds just before the summer vacation or other special occasion.
The pre-holiday diet is very strict and a very low calorie diet. No getting round the menu is allowed. It is a pretty lean diet offering nothing but frugal meals.
Yes, it’s just as bad as it sounds – 3 scarcely small portions per day for 7 days. If you “survive” this free diet plan you’ll be at least 3 kilograms off by the end of the 7th day. Moreover, if you add some home workout, let’s say 2-3 times a week on the treadmill for 20 minutes, you’ll shape a body ready for the bikini season.
1 cup of herbal tea with no sugar (any kind is good but for best results try Radix Ononidis)
1 medium portion of very low fat vegetable soup
1 big portion of tomato-cucumber salad
1 cup of pure fruit juice
2 boiled potatoes
1 cup of bouillon (any kind – meat or vegetable)
1 grilled cutlet with a slice of cucumber
250 grams of potato salad with very low fats added
1 toast of bread and a cup of coffee with no sugar
1 medium portion of vegetable soup
250 grams of mashed vegetables with very low fat added
1 season fruit
1 medium portion of stewed vegetables
150 grams of boiled rice with no fats added
300 grams of cherries or other fruit in season
2-3 slices of lean fish (could be boiled or broiled)
1 big portion of yogurt-cucumber mix (i.e. tarator)
1 cup of buttermilk
1 medium portion of tomato salad
1 cup boiled oat brans
Drink at least 1.5 – 2 liters of water per day.
If you find the weekly pre-holiday diet plan menu too scarcely low caloric, which I’m pretty sure you’ll do, then you can substitute the recommended breakfast for the following:
Mix all in a bowl and eat it for breakfast.
P.S. To gain maximum benefits from the flax seeds, you better soak them in cold water previous night.
This breakfast is a nutritious and well-balanced mix that is a perfect start of the day. It not only aids weight loss, but also lowers blood sugar and cholesterol levels. It’s an overall vitality booster that gives you the energy and strength required to keep the strict pre-holiday diet.
