The Seafood diet is a perfect way to lose weight while eating tasty. With seafood, you do not have to worry about calories: although fish can be fatty, it is still lighter than meat. This diet is good for both men and women.
RULES OF THE SEA DIET
What to eat? Everything the sea can give us:
- crabs etc.
All these foods are the source of protein, iodine and zinc, calcium, copper, omega-3, vitamins A and D and amino acids.
While on the seafood diet, drink water with lemon juice 30–60 minutes before breakfast to improve your digestion. Do not diet for a long time: iodine level in your body can become excessive, resulting in thyroid disorders. To regulate calcium and phosphorous metabolism, you can take vitamins when dieting and after.
When you finish dieting, return to your usual eating habits carefully and gradually. Remember that you should not abruptly stop eating seaweed and other kinds of seafood.
SHOULD I FOLLOW THE SEAFOOD DIET?
Only a doctor can answer this question. There are some contraindications, such as:
- Allergy to seafood
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Thyroid problems
- Disorders that require other specific diets
The advantages of this diet include the following:
- Delicious taste
- Fast nutrient digestion
- Improving your hair, nails, and skin
- Quick weight loss (up to 6 kg within 3 days)
- Getting fit
- Boosting immune system
- Helping with depression
- Increasing sexual vigour
- Improving intestinal system functioning
The main disadvantage of the seafood diet is being able to afford it because seafood is certainly not cheap. Moreover, it requires certain skills for cooking, which is time-consuming.
