Upon rising, drink a glass of purer fruit juice, herb tea, or apple cider vinegar which is about a teaspoon mixed with honey and hot water. This apple cider vinegar with water concoction is an effective slimming formula for me as it has been for many centuries. Apple cider melts fatty deposits in your bloodstream so it enhances the circulation of blood.
For breakfast, you can have some muesli with yogurt and tahini or whole grain cereal with skimmed or soy milk. Some alternatives would be fresh fruit with wheat germs and yogurt, or toasted bread with sunflower margarine and honey or savory spread. Drink herb tea, cereal coffee substitute, or pure fruit juice.
For lunch, we have some vegetarian savory made with cheese, nuts or grains or legumes, with a selection of vegetables in season. Or have a mixed vegetable salad with baked unpeeled potato or baked onions. For dessert, try a soaked dried fruit, baked apple, fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, natural fruit jelly, or a tofu dessert, which is tofu is eaten with dried fruit, fresh fruit , or honey.
For supper, eat the kind of food you had for lunch but do so before 6p.m. Or, you could have something light, like a vegetable soap or fruit. You can also try a mixed salad and yogurt with some vegetarian savory and tofu.
Herbal tea are vital whether you are on a diet or not because they have a string of health benefits. These tea concoctions help reduce body weight. You can try chamomile tea and lemon. This done by boiling a cup of water to a slice of lemon and one teaspoon of chamomile. Cover and leaved overnight. Drink it first thing in the morning. Or, you drink a glass of unsweetened grape juice before breakfast and another in the afternoon. Another concoction is prepared using onions. Chopped onion is added to a glass of boiling water. Then add a few drops of lemon juice. Drink this first thing in the morning.
