How to lose weight quickly without harming yourself and then gaining extra pounds again? Cleopatra herself knew the answer: kefir diet. Its main component is kefir, which starts the active process of weight loss in the body.
The advantage of kefir diet for weight loss is its availability: the cost of one liter of fermented milk drink is rarely high and you can find it in every grocery store.
About the useful properties of kefir
Kefir is rightly called one of the most useful products: it is obtained from milk during the fermentation process of lactic acid bacteria. It is rich in vitamins A and B, as well as easily digestible proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Moreover, it goes well with various products such as cottage cheese, buckwheat, vegetables, fruits.
What kefir to use for diet
Despite the seeming simplicity of preparation for kefir diet, there is some subtlety in choosing the main ingredient, which will make this diet really effective.
How to choose
Pay attention to the following parameters:
- news.For a kefir diet, it is better to give preference to fresh kefir, which was made 1-2 days ago. But we must remember that if such kefir is more than three days, it "strengthens". Only fresh kefir will have a laxative effect.
- Fat content.It is better to take kefir with 2. 5% fat, 3. 2% will cause heaviness in the stomach, and one percent is not so satisfactory. The lack of benefits of low-fat kefir has already been confirmed by nutritionists, besides, fats in small amounts are necessary for the body.
- Number of CFU: 10, 000, 000 for the entire shelf life.
It is better to prepare a lactic acid drink yourself from a pharmacy starter, but for this you need to be sure of the quality of the milk used.
