The pineapple diet helps you destroy the consequences of overeating, as well as the consumption of unhealthy food.
It’s recommended that you practice it 4 days and is considered to be a temporary remedy, since it represents an imbalanced diet.
This diet can help you lose up to 3 kg a week.
Pineapple is effective in the fight against water retention, bloating and cellulite. It’s rich in water (about 90%), potassium that eliminates the excess of water, iron, that creates red blood cells which are known to transport the oxygen throughout the whole body.
Pineapple also contains an enzyme called bromelain that improves the digestion and fights against the inflammatory processes of the organism. Another very important property of this enzyme is that it can fasten your metabolism.
The pineapple is a hypo-caloric fruit and 100 grams contain 40 calories. You should always try and consume it fresh and ripe, as well as keep it in the fridge upside down, so that the sugar can melt in the whole fruit. When it’s fresh, its crust is yellowish-orange in color and without any spots. Its structure is hard and the leaves are green.
You should eat it right after you’ve cut it so it can preserve all the properties of vitamin C, which is important for the formation of collagen that improves the elasticity of your skin.
Here are several examples of what to do when you’re on the pineapple diet: avoid processed meat products and old cheese, carbohydrates, energetic and alcoholic drinks. It’s important to drink tea (at least 2 cups of tea a day) and at least 2 liters of water a day.
It’s recommended to do this: at least 2 tablespoons of oil a day, limit the intake of salt, spices and vinegar. Physical activity is always welcome.
This pineapple diet should be held by people in good health. It’s not recommended to people who suffer from diabetes and colitis, people who are intolerant to pineapple enzymes and to the ones who have liver or kidney dysfunction.
Here’s an example of the pineapple diet for one day:
Breakfast: pineapple juice + 1 fruit + 1 cup of tea
Snack: natural pineapple juice
Lunch: 4 pineapple slices + 1 slice of bread
Snack: pineapple juice + 1 apple
Dinner: 2 pineapple slices + 50 grams of boiled rice + 1 cup of tea against bloating
An example of the pineapple diet for 3 days:
Day 1: consume only fresh pineapple and water.
Day 2: pineapple, water and two cans of tuna (one for lunch and the other for dinner).
Day 3 is identical to day 1.
You should keep in mind that this diet only has one goal – detoxification, because it can happen that the lost kilograms and especially water, return when we go back to the normal regimen of our nutrition.
It is advised that the pineapple becomes a part of the regular, balanced diet which has the purpose to lose weight, because it stimulates the sense of satiety and satisfies your desire for something sweet.
