Surely you have noticed more than once that one day you can eat sweet with complete impunity – that is, it will not affect your health in any way, and in others – an inoffensive chocolate turns out to be superfluous. All this can be corrected if we follow a special nutritional scheme compiled according to the lunar calendar. The advice is simple: it is on the days of the diminishing month that the diet for weight loss will be very effective. Lead your own lunar calendar: following it, you will not only lose weight, but you can always maintain weight in the norm.

Your sign of the zodiac

- If the moon is in the constellation of terrestrial signs – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn – you consume more salt than usual. And, as is known, salt detains water in the body, which contributes to weight gain and stimulates appetite. On such days it is better to exclude from the diet excessively salty dishes. Replace the salt with herbs – dill, parsley, basil.
- If the moon is in a constellation of aerial signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – pulls on very fatty and high-calorie dishes. Eat more salads from fresh vegetables, dressed with olive oil. It’s the same fat, but useful. In addition, in the salad you will add just a few drops of oil, which does not appear on your figure.
- If the moon is in the constellation of one of the signs of the water element – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces – you want something flour – pulls on carbohydrate food. Cookies, pasta, sweets – it’s delicious, but harmful to the figure. In addition, absorbing them in large quantities, you run the risk of falling into dependence on them, because carbohydrates cheer up. Eat whole wheat bread, oatmeal cookies, pasta from durum wheat. Include in the diet and protein (such as fish), which promotes a faster burning of carbohydrates in the body.
