When you decide to lose weight, the first thing that comes to your mind is dieting and exercising. You can lose weight doing either or both of these. However, many people prefer dieting.
There are two types of dieting: One where you refrain from eating, and the other where you eat nutritious foods and avoid the foods that are harmful to your body.
With the mixture of both types, we have created an acute diet for the obese who want to lose weight immediately.
However, this kind of diet should be followed only if you’re not suffering from chronic fatigue or a chronic illness. Here’s a 420-calorie diet for the days you feel you need to go on the strictest diet!
1. Spinach and Mint Juice
Spinach and Mint is a great combination, especially for the morning juice. Many people hate eating raw spinach as a vegetable or in a salad, hence, this is a great way to consume spinach.
It is loaded with lots of vitamins such as A, K, B2, B12 and B6. Also, mint leaves have great antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
You must start your day with 15 to 20 leaves of spinach and a handful of mint leaves. Simply crush them with ice in a mixture and serve them with a dash of salt and few drops of lemon juice.
One small glass of this juice will only give you about 30 calories in all. The juice is said to provide your body with healthy carbohydrates, protein and energy.
