Diet is an essential part of a weight-loss technique developed by a doctor. The diet allows you to lose from 2 to 7 kilograms per month and from 5 to 17 kilograms in three months and is as follows.
You can apply a pulse diet for a long time, for several months. And the best part is that you can stop arranging fasting days for some time (without departing from the principles of low-fat nutrition): Mikhail Ginzburg promises that weight will not increase at the same time. With the resumption of fasting days, weight loss will also resume.
Ginzburg’s pulse diet contributes to the loss of adipose tissue, not muscle. The diet is safe even with prolonged use and, at the same time, contributes to the formation of skills and healthy eating habits, which dramatically reduces the likelihood of repeated weight gain.
A person who wants to lose weight should switch to low-fat food, and regularly arrange fasting days. The maximum frequency of fasting days is every other day (more often it is impossible since in this case, the body will receive less vital substances), the minimum – twice a week (you can, however, less often, but losing weight will go at a much lower rate). Another mode is also possible: daily low-fat lunch and “unloading” breakfast and dinner.
So. The recommendations are as follows. Daily control the consumption of fatty foods. On fasting days, consume vegetables in the amount of 500-600 grams and fruits – 300-400 grams. Liquid (tea, coffee, mineral water) is not limited. Tea and coffee – without sugar, you can replace it with a spoon of honey. The time of the last meal is not limited.
Fats should not be completely excluded from the diet. Serious restrictions must be offset by fish (or fish oils) and meat. This will help to avoid a shortage of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids that are hazardous to health. The use of vegetable fats is also not completely excluded.

A remarkable feature of the Ginzburg low-fat diet system is that the total amount and calorie intake of food is not limited. Moreover, unlike the vast majority of other systems, the use of carbohydrates is not prohibited or even almost limited. Sweets (but only low-fat)
are not prohibited, and their consumption should be controlled only if the restriction of fat intake does not lead to the desired result.
The main problem that we may encounter when switching to low-fat nutrition is a deficiency of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. To avoid it, it is recommended to eat marine fish daily, and on days when there is no fish in your diet, take 1-3 grams (1/2 teaspoon) of fish oil.
