There isn’t any magic pill that will help you lose 30 pounds a week without compromising your health. However, we at Bright Side would like to share a recipe for a delicious and healthy drink that’ll help you lose weight faster than you would without it.
You will need:
- 1 celery stalk
- 1 medium-sized cucumber
- 1 glass cut parsley
- 3 pieces fresh pineapple
Thoroughly wash the vegetables, and remove the skin of the pineapple. Mix them all in the blender. Do not add salt, pepper, sugar, or its substitutes to the drink.
You should drink the pineapple and vegetable juice within 15 minutes of making it so that it doesn’t lose its properties. Drink it in the morning and only in a fasted state.
If you combine this drink with sports and a healthy diet, you’ll see the results in a week – your belly will become visibly flatter.
So what’s the secret of this juice?
- Celery is a very low-calorie vegetable, containing only 16 kcal per 100 g. The dietary fiber swells inside the stomach, making you feel satiated. In addition, a study has shown that an increase of fiber in your diet is an essential component of a weight-loss regimen.
- Like celery, cucumbers contain lots of fiber and are almost similarly low calorie. 95% of a cucumber is water, so they help you drink your essential 2 L of liquid, recommended by nutrition specialists to all who want to stay in shape.
- Parsley contains a lot of fiber (3.3 g per 100 g – to compare, the same amount of cucumber and celery only contain 0.5 g and 1.6 g correspondingly). It also has a mild natural diuretic effect.
- 100 g of pineapple contains 1 g of nonsoluble fiber, while its energy value is about 50 kcal. The fruit is sweet, so it also improves the taste of the drink.
