What is the 6 Petals Diet?

The 6 Petals Diet has a pretty name that unfamiliar people associate with flowers. In fact, each petal of chamomile is one day of a certain mono-diet, that is, the use of only one specific type of product is understood.

Thanks to this nutrition system, you can lose weight quickly and easily. It turns out that they get rid of 500 g per day, and the results in 2 cycles will be amazing, about 7 kilograms.

The essence of diet

The 6 Petals Diet was created by Anna Johansson. He is a renowned Swedish nutritionist. Weight loss feeding system approved by the Dietetic Association. Studies have been done that have shown that people lose 500 grams per day and sometimes up to 800 grams. At the same time, his general health remained good.

In the end, additional medical examinations of the volunteers were carried out. The results showed that the health of the program participants improved. In other words, the 6 petal diet not only helps you lose weight but also strengthens your body.

The duration of this course is 6 days (hence the name of the diet). The main principle is separate nutrition, thanks to which the slimming effect is achieved. For 6 days, you must follow different mono-diets, one per day. The sequence should not be broken, as it is an alternation of carbohydrate and protein days.

In one day, you will have to eat foods that belong to the same food category. The order is as follows:

  1. Fish day.
  2. Vegetable Day.
  3. Chicken Day.
  4. Cereal day.
  5. Curd day.
  6. Fruit day.

To avoid consuming more calories than you need, you should measure your food portions every day:

  • fish: not more than 500 grams;
  • vegetables - up to 1. 5 kg;
  • meat - up to 500 grams;
  • cereals - up to 200 g;
  • cottage cheese - up to 500 grams;
  • fruits and berries - up to 1, 5 kg.

Anna Johansson advised making a 6-petal flower on which to write cute diets to stay motivated. Hence the name associated with the plant appeared, although in reality no flowers or herbs are used. You can hang a homemade chamomile in a prominent place and look at it whenever there is a high probability of breakdown. Picking out a petal every day makes a hunger strike much easier to endure.
