You have tried different diets but none of them have been effective, what if we told you that this could have something to do with the phases of the moon? When you read this article you’ll be surprised of knowing how influential the moon can be to lose weight.
The diet of the moon was created by Rolando Ricci who has based on the influence of the moon on our bodies to produce it. That is, his theory is that the water we have in our body (comprising 70% of our body) keeps pace below the sea water and, as we know, the tide rises or falls according to the moon phase. So, this diet claims that it is necessary to fast following the phases of the moon to enhance the slimming effect that involves not eating for a whole day.
The diet of the moon, plus helping you lose up to three kilos in a day, serves to purify the body, cleanse the stomach and improve the functioning of the digestive system. It also cleans and detoxifies the skin, eliminating acne and helps those who have problems with fluid retention as this diet encourages the elimination of unneeded fluids through urine.
How to do the diet of the moon
To carry out this diet, in the days when the moon enters full moon or new moon, you should fast for 26 hours from the change of moon phase. However, it is very important that when you make the diet you consume a lot of fluids (juice, broth, water) to prevent dehydration.
If the moon comes in fourth or last quarter, you should do a half fast which involves consuming certain solids during those 26 hours. This is a fast that will not help you lose weight but to keep it.
It is important to note that this diet, as being so strict, can cause the following symptoms:
- Low blood pressure
- Stress, anxiety
- Hair loss
- Physical weakness
If you want to lose weight fast, try this diet but always with responsibility.
