Broccoli chickenNowadays, a lot of people are overweight. Moreover, this problem is relevant for both men and women. At the same time, it is much easier to gain weight than to lose it. That is why people are always looking for the most successful way to lose extra pounds.

At the same time, the developers of the chicken and broccoli diet claim that the weight loss process will take place without any additional physical exertion. Plus, the products used are as natural and accessible as possible.

Difficulty of the diet

What Is This Diet?

broccoli vitamins
Based on the name of the diet, it is clear that the main two components are broccoli sprouts and chicken. Chicken is rich in protein, and broccoli contains many essential minerals, vitamins, and dietary fiber.

Our diet does not include carbohydrates. At first, the extra weight is removed from the body along with the water. And by sticking to our thorough plan, you will achieve good results. Excess fat will be burned as well as converted into additional energy.

The-benefits-of-chicken-meatYes, we know that eating only chicken and cabbage for a long time is difficult. This is what discourages people. The body will feel weak and lethargic. All this happens because of the lack of necessary carbohydrates. But this is only true if you cook the products only in one form. If you cook meat and cabbage in different ways, the variety will be sufficient. For example, the chicken can be boiled, fried, or baked. You can also boil it into soup. All of this, except boiling, applies to broccoli as well. The fact is that when you boil the vegetable, it loses a lot of nutrients. That’s why you should boil the crab so that it is slightly raw. Or the cabbage can be steamed, microwaved, or roasted.

Length of Diet

Actually, our diet lasts for 10 days. It has different dietary patterns, each of which takes two days.

  • The first couple of days lay the basic foundation and are therefore very important. At this point, the body gets a shake-up. The weight-loss-related processes are then activated in it. On these days, you should eat only CB and boiled chicken breast.
  • We change our diet to broccoli + other vegetables.
  • On the third segment of the diet, in addition to the second point, you can add kefir and lean beef.
  • Allowed to add rye bread.
  • Well, at the finishing stage, you need to add fish to your diet.

Break up your eating schedule into three meals a day. Do not overeat. Have dinner at least 2-3 hours before going to bed.

As for drinking, it is recommended to drink a lot of plain water. If you drink milk drinks, choose those with the least amount of fat. Tea or coffee, only without sugar, not more than twice a day. Also, refuse sugar substitutes. Salt is permissible in small quantities.
To summarize, it is not necessary to eat only one broccoli. As you can see, in addition to the broccoli, you have a wide variety of products. There is meat, fish, bread, a variety of vegetables, and herbs. Experts recommend [1] following the menu that we’ll describe below. Otherwise, the result may be less effective.
