It is believed that the ideal time for weight loss is early spring, in order to look perfect on the eve of the new beach season. In fact, seasonality does not play a major role here. Beautiful ladies want to be beautiful all year round so that men admire and give flowers. By the way, we will talk about flowers today. The “Flower-Semitsvetik” diet is a real gift for lovely ladies, as it helps to keep fit and quickly return to its previous size without too much effort.
A bit of history
This system did not arise by itself. It was developed in detail by a Swedish nutritionist. From the very first day and until now, the number of people who said goodbye to extra pounds thanks to the “Flower-Semitsvetik” diet is only growing. The system assumes that weight loss will occur in 7 days. Each of them is a separate mono-diet.
At this point, you need to dwell in more detail. Of course, every specialist in the field of nutrition will say that limiting the diet to one product is harmful. But later it was experimentally proved that you can spend one day on a mono-diet. That is why fasting days began to be widely used.
The “Flower-Semitsvetik” diet is based on the same principle, because every day you have a new product on your table. Therefore, it is psychologically easier for a person to observe restrictions. You must admit that even if you do not like kefir or fish, you can still withstand one day of eating this product. But a one-week mono-diet would be torture.
Initially, this system was called "five ...", and then "six petals." Therefore, the "Flower-Semitsvetik" diet belonged to the short-term section. Later it was supplemented with another fasting day. You can’t eat at this time, only drink water. It is worth noting that this day was added to the diet later, when they established the great effectiveness of such a scheme. We will consider the menu of the 6-petal diet in detail, and a drinking day is limited to three liters of clean water. He is considered the hardest, but what can’t be done to achieve a dream.
Flowers for every woman are associated with youth, spring, joy. Therefore, the name of the diet appeals to such an image in order to create the right attitude. You will not torment yourself, on the contrary, every day will be an amazing discovery. And as a result, the numbers on the scales will show how effective the whole system was.
At the same time, the author of the technique suggests additionally motivating yourself to reduce weight. To do this, just cut out a flower with seven petals from paper.
- Use a magnet to secure it to the refrigerator door.
- On each petal, write the product that is allowed.
- Every evening, tear off the lived petal, and in the morning weigh yourself and proceed to the next.
This simple technique allows you to stop you when you try to find something tasty in the refrigerator. In the morning you will get up in a good mood, knowing that you will live one more day for the benefit of your figure.
The diet menu “Flower-Semitsvetik” is very simple. For every day you need to cook just one product. At the same time, the course lasts only a week, and you do not have to count calories and weigh portions. But the most difficult thing is not to break loose and not to eat the product that is not put on the menu today. The main principles of the diet are as follows:
- It is imperative to follow the sequence of days. You can’t skip from one to another or choose the ones you like best. It is this approach that allows us to maintain a balance of carbohydrates and protein.
- You need to eat when you want. And it doesn’t matter whether it is morning or late evening. This greatly simplifies the task.
- When you have to eat one product, a real disgust is developed for it, so overeating will not work.
- Sugar is completely excluded from the menu. If it’s really hard, you can drink green tea with a spoonful of honey.
- Drink water every morning.
- Black coffee allowed.
Separate recommendation from losing weight. The results of the 6-petal diet are best evaluated after the course is over, as weight loss is uneven. Therefore, we remove the scales in the far corner and calmly go to the intended target. If you do everything right, the result will definitely be. Moreover, according to reviews, it is often much more effective than achieving losing weight on other diets.
The choice is yours
This is one of the greatest advantages of this system. The 6-petal diet menu can be adjusted to your liking. It all depends on your taste preferences. An individual menu will also meet financial possibilities. For example, there is a fish day in the system. You can buy yourself pollock or delicious chum salmon. And it can be eaten in boiled or baked form, stewed or rolled into rolls and stuffed with greens. So you can cook dozens of different dishes. And if the time for culinary delights is sorely lacking, you can just use the allowed foods in fresh (applies to vegetables and cereals), boiled or baked.
Day One - Fish
Not necessarily this will be the beginning of the week. If you want, the first day can fall on Sunday or Wednesday. But it is imperative to comply with the order that the author of the technique came up with. This is exactly what the 6-petal diet is all about. We will now consider the menu for every day with you so that everyone can clearly imagine what he will eat.
The main thing is to follow the general principle of diet. Six days - six products, and the last day is the most difficult, since it involves exclusively a drinking regime. Simple, monocomponent dishes are very easy to prepare even by a novice hostess.
So, fish day. You can cook absolutely any fish that is allowed to salt and season with a little seasoning. Rosemary, basil and Provencal herbs go well with fish. You can cook a monosup with herbs. But semi-finished products and crab sticks are strictly prohibited. That is, you need exclusively natural fish.
For a day you will need from 0.3 to 0.5 kg of fresh fish or seafood. What can be prepared so as not to feel discomfort all day:
- For breakfast, 100 g perch or other low-fat fish.
- For a snack, bake 100 g of fish, seasoning it with herbs.
- For lunch, soup.
- For an afternoon snack, 100 g of hake for a couple.
- For dinner, 100 g of pike perch with herbs.
Of course, you need to have free time in order to cook several dishes. But if it is not enough, then it is perfectly acceptable to cook or bake the daily portion immediately in the morning.
Day Two: Vegetable Abundance
If you study the reviews, you can understand that usually at that moment a person begins to feel the first difficulties associated with the 6-petal diet. The menu for every day is best painted in advance, so that it is easier to stick to the plan later. Why exactly the second day becomes a turning point? Because you are not yet accustomed to a new variant of nutrition and restrictions are difficult. If on the first day there was protein on the menu, today are vegetables that do not give a full feeling of satiety.
On this day, the body is cleansed. Starchy plant carbohydrates provide satiety. Up to 1.5 kg of raw vegetables can be eaten per day. They can be steamed, stewed or baked. You can use a minimum amount of salt.
You can make vegetable juices, such as tomato or celery. But you need to drink them with caution. For example, fresh beetroot juice needs to be drunk, having previously defended it for several hours.
- For breakfast, you can grated carrots or turnips.
- For a snack, an eggplant and zucchini stew is suitable.
- Lunch - stewed cabbage.
- Snack - carrots.
- Dinner is a salad.
Minimal effort - and the menu is bright, elegant and mouth-watering.
Each housewife knows a large number of options for recipes for chicken. The only condition is not to fry meat and remove fat. Cook steam cakes, soup, meatballs.
Believe me, with such a diet you can very easily achieve results. Reviews of the 6-petal diet emphasize that it is this day that gives strength to continue the course and reach the very end.

For someone, this day is the easiest. For others, on the contrary, it is very difficult, since few are accustomed to eating cereal foods as an independent dish. And variety is hard to come up with here. But hunger certainly does not threaten you. Porridge itself is very satisfying. However, it is forbidden to sprinkle them with butter, sugar and other additives. A small amount of salt, spices and aromatic herbs will correct the picture. Do not forget that you have to spend on such a diet for just one day.
You can diversify the menu with sprouted wheat grains and bran bread. You can drink real kvass, but not in store. Up to 300 g of cereals can be consumed per day. For each meal, you can choose a separate type of porridge.
