The main diet principle is not to have dinner at all. First for the period of dieting, and then you should do it forever. Starting the American diet you should also study its four main principles:
- The purposeful choice of the right foods;
- The sufficient providing of your body with water;
- The refusal of “not healthy” fats;
- Providing of your body with vitamins and microelements.
- You can have anything you want for breakfast.
To be true, this diet makes no provision for any restrictions (apart from the ban for having dinner). Sweets, farinaceous food, snacks and beer are possible. The diet doesn’t give results in three days but you will be able to see them by the end of the second week. An essential element of American diet (if you want to burn fat, not the muscles) is fitness, active lifestyle which helps you waist calories you get.
Recommendations for the American diet
1. You shouldn’t have anything after 17 o’clock apart from water.
2. You should drink a lot but during the day time, not in the evening. The sufficient amount of water contributes to cleansing of your body of toxins and fast elimination of toxins.
3. Remember about the fats. If you had the odd piece of sausage don’t forget to have two slices of pineapple or 2-3 grapefruit segments after it.
4. Don’t forget about the food you should have during the day time as well as during the week.
5. You can have your day food allowance of the American diet in the way you prefer to.
For twenty-four hours of your American diet you should have:
• 400 g of vegetables
• 300 g of fruit
• 50 g of bread
• 250 g of low-fat sugar-free dairy products
• 100 g low-fat meat.
It is the most effective version of the diet.

American diet 2 (“A roller coaster”)
The “roller coaster” diet is a diet based on a principle of changing the amount of calories consumed. It is one of the variants of the American diet. The diet is based on the fact that in case of keeping to any diet the body remembers the amount of the calories consumed and after your body adapts to the new diet there is the economy of calories and your body stops losing weight. What is more, the body starts putting on weight very fast after you stop dieting. But if you change the amount of calories consumed the metabolism won’t get slower and you will continue losing your weight.
The system of dieting according to the “roller coaster” diet:
It is a three-week diet. You should not consume any fatty foods.
During the first three days it is possible to consume 600 kilocalories a day
Days 4,5,6,7 – 900 kilocalories
During the second week – 1200 kilocalories
During the third week you should diet as during the first week – 600 and 900 kilocalories
The “roller coaster” diet combined with the sport trainings will make it possible for you to lose 6-7 kg for 3 weeks. If you do some aerobics and some muscle-strengthening exercises then you will lose 8-9 kg for 7 days.
