Canadian diet belongs to the low-calorie ones. It is designed for 7 days and helps to lose weight by 3-5 kg. Due to its composition, timing and the number of kilograms for which you can lose weight, this diet is very similar to liquid diets based on vegetable soups.
So, as you guessed, the basis of our ration is a soup. For its preparation you can use: cabbage (white cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower), onions, carrots, tomatoes, leek, peppers, beans. It is not desirable to use potatoes in this diet. This is not a mono-diet. You are permitted to use vegetable salads and unsweetened fruit. You definitely need to exclude: sweet, bakery products, cereals, coffee, alcohol, meat products, fish, cheese.
It is recommended to drink plenty of water, spend more time outdoors and try to do at least a minimum of exercises. You can eat soup in any amounts, but it is advisable to divide it into 5-6 meals throughout the day. If hunger still haunts you, eat salads and fruit as a snack. You will be able to endure such a regime for a week.
