Corn diet

Corn diet is one of the mono diets, they are quite rigid and designed to lose a few pounds in just a few days. If you are going to lose weight globally, this diet as a primary measure, of course, is not suitable. But if you want to throw a little bit at the waist for a holiday – it is a perfectly acceptable method. Generally it is best to treat such diets as a pleasant unloading days. It is not necessary to arrange it more than once a month and extend over three to four days.

A diet based on maize, can be divided into:

  • diet on fresh (cooked) or canned corn;
  • diet on corn porridge;
  • diet on corn flakes.

Let us consider all the varieties of maize diet. The most preferred is the diet on fresh boiled corn. It retained the most useful substances, unlike canned. Also, do not forget about such an important factor, as the acid-alkaline balance. In different kinds of products and corn, it’s different:

  • fresh corn (sweet, boiled) – slightly alkaline;
  • corn porridge, hominy – slightly acidic;
  • corn flakes – medium acidity;
  • canned corn – acid.

The effect of the acid-base balance in the weight loss and gastrointestinal tract can be learned from a variety of materials about a healthy diet, but if you talk about it briefly, then fresh fruits and vegetables is preferable, since they are fewer in our diet. Therefore, the best option for a diet is boiled corn, followed by porridge, then – canned foods, and in the end – flakes. Why is that? Because in fresh nutrients the most, and she alkalify (restores imbalance that contributes to excess weight). Cereal and canned retain nutrients in part. A flake processing virtually eliminates them. In addition, canned food and cereals made with sugar and salt.

What are the nutrients found in fresh corn? It is full of vitamins: vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin H. Also in corn contains a certain number of micro and macro elements: calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, nickel and other minerals. Because of this it is safe for allergy sufferers and people with diabetes.

The acids that make up the corn, regulate cholesterol, fiber helps rid the body of toxins. Corn is generally good for the normalization of digestion and combat obesity. But this only applies to fresh corn (and to what extent – to the porridge).

Make sure during the diet drink plenty of fluids (1.5-2 liters per day). It can be green or herbal tea without sugar, mineral water without gas. It is impossible to coffee and soft drinks.

Between meals in all variants are assumed to have a snack in the form of fruit.

Diet fresh corn

Each morning cooked corn cob 2-3 (without salt). One is eaten in the morning, the other – in the afternoon. Supplement can be fresh vegetables or fruits, except bananas, grapes and melons. It can be an apple, tomato, cucumber, kiwi fruit, peppers and herbs. You can make a salad, and you can eat well. On the third and fourth day added 150 grams of mushrooms (boiled or steamed).

On the third day, the amount of corn is reduced by half.

There is a version of the diet, which recommends 700 grams of corn (cob 3-4) and an unlimited number of fruits and vegetables, and there are more hard version: 400 grams of maize (corn cob 2) and one fruit or vegetable per meal.

Canned corn is used in exactly the same rate of 400 grams per day.

Diet corn porridge

Soaked barley is cooked quickly, about 15 minutes porridge prepared in the proportions of 1 to 4, ie one glass of cereals – 4 cups of water (this day norm). You can add salt. A little olive oil into it already added before serving.
