The Kremlin diet is fondly beloved by pop stars, politicians and businessmen precisely because it allows you to lose weight deliciously. This is especially true for men who are not ready to make such sacrifices for the sake of their beauty, like women. How to lose weight, while enjoying yourself with your favorite products.

General information of the Kremlin diet

You almost completely limit yourself to carbohydrates, consuming them per day no more than 40 points. These points are calculated on a special table of carbohydrates, where each product has its own amount of carbohydrates in points. Points are an indication of how many carbohydrates are in 100 g of your chosen product.

The Kremlin diet, the table of which is the foundation of the entire diet, was formerly known as the special dietary diet for American cosmonauts. Indeed, there is an opinion that a balanced nutrition system was developed by US dieticians for candidates for the cosmonaut detachment, as well as for elite NATO units. Since there is no exact data on how the Kremlin diet was created, the calorie table and the calculation of scores, it is quite logical that a mysterious halo arose around the miracle technique. The title "Kremlin" was given to new dietary food due to the fact that it was used to regulate weight and normalize the metabolism of many higher party ranks, and later persons from the "celebrity" cohort - politicians of the highest echelon of power, pop stars and cinema.

Today, the Kremlin diet, calorie table, calculation scheme and even examples of making a menu for a month are not a state secret, every person who has a true motivation and desire to achieve results can use the method to lose weight and improve his health with the offered dishes.

Table of points of the Kremlin diet - user's guide

Despite the extensive information that the Kremlin diet contains, a complete table of points is memorized in two to three weeks easily enough. The first thing that needs to be done is to learn to look at every label of any purchased product, where the data on the amount of proteins, carbohydrates and fats in 100 grams should be recorded.

For example, you love yogurts, buy a bottle or jar, which states that 100 grams of this dairy product contains 15 grams of carbohydrates. The bottle contains 200 grams of product, respectively, it contains 30 grams of so-called c.e. - conventional units. If you consider that a day, according to the menu, you need to eat no more than 40 cu, then one bottle of yogurt will have to be limited. In addition, there is certainly sugar in yogurt, which the Kremlin's diet does not welcome. It also "absorbs" the bread allowed by the norm, both white and black, all kinds of porridge. The Kremlin diet, the table of ready meals is absolutely not suitable for fans of sweet foods, but if the "sweet tooth" decided to lose weight, then it is necessary to adhere to it only dietary diet, in which there are a lot of other, quite mouth-watering dishes. In addition, it includes traditional three meals a day and small "snacks" between main meals. Observing the Kremlin diet, you can not refuse to visit picnics, parties and banquets, you just need to prepare, that is, to study, and it is better to keep in electronic form data on products, and periodically check what you are going to eat with what the Kremlin diet offers, table of points.

The Kremlin diet, the table of products immediately shows that you can safely eat meat products, because they contain the least amount of conventional units. Also in the list of allowed seafood, greens, several types of dairy products, certain types of vegetables and seasonings. Thus, one of the differences of the Kremlin diet from other, more strict rations, is that the menu is very diverse, and the dishes are not devoid of the usual taste.

A very important nuance

In the first week of weight loss on the Kremlin diet per day you can afford not more than 20 points on the table of carbohydrates, in the second 2 weeks - no more than 30 points per day on the table of carbohydrates and in 2-3 subsequent weeks - no more than 40 points per day.

But protein food (especially meat), please eat as much as you like. Fried protein dishes, spices and spices are allowed.

What can and what can not?

What is included in the menu of the Kremlin diet?

The Kremlin diet, the full table of which will be presented below, allows you to eat many foods, but there are some simple rules and boundaries, adhering to which you can achieve a truly lasting result.

Meat - better boiled, baked and without mayonnaise or any sauces. The size of a single serving should not exceed the palm of a losing weight. Also, ham and sausage are allowed, both smoked and boiled, because one hundred grams of these products contain only 1 point. A wonderful alternative to fats will be vegetable oil, which does not contain any points, margarine - 1 point cheeses - up to 2 cu. In 100 grams, in one egg - only 0.5 points. Fish, both river and sea, are allowed in any form of processing - boiled, baked, fried in vegetable oil, because 100 grams of fish product "weighs" only 6.u. But vegetables, in spite of their seeming "lightness", not all are present in the list of allowed products. The Kremlin diet, calorie table says that one tomato is as much as 6 points, one average potato is 20-22 cu, even boiled cabbage, strangely enough, falls under restrictions, only 100 grams of cabbage contains as much as 9 points. Fruits - from apples to bananas will have to eat only small pieces, but about cakes, ice cream and cake will have to be forgotten, at least for the time of dietary ration.

What is the Kremlin's diet, a table of foods and a diet menu allow? 

  • Many, many drinks, including tea and coffee, which, however, have to drink almost without sugar. 
  • Meat. 
  • Solid cheeses (even fatty). 
  • Vegetables.

How to lose weight on the Kremlin diet?

You can consume all sorts of meat, including fat, but you need to control the level of cholesterol. Such a diet is good for those who are actively engaged in sports or any other physical activity: you will build up muscle mass and lose excess weight at the same time.

The principle of the Kremlin diet is based on the fact that you will not get energy from carbohydrates, but you will get it from protein foods. Thus, the body burns fats and removes fatty deposits.

Carbohydrates in the Kremlin diet are allowed, but minimal: not more than 40 grams per day. You will take them not from the usual diet with potatoes and flour products, but from vegetables. Thus, improve the condition of the skin, hair and nails. Even look younger, and not just get rid of excess weight.

Of fruits, only avocados are allowed. All other fruits during the Kremlin diet are almost banned, because they contain a lot of glucose.

Studying what the Kremlin diet offers, the full table of which is quite large, it seems that it is impossible to remember everything. Tip - choose and store those products where points tend to zero, this list is three times smaller than a full table of glasses of the Kremlin diet. For example, the list below, of what the Kremlin diet assumes, the calorie table indicates how almost prohibited foods, because they contain a large amount of carbohydrates. It is fairly easy to remember that almost all cereals, bakery and pasta are best not included in the diet.

What is absolutely impossible with the Kremlin diet?

From carbohydrates, please refuse almost completely (except for carbohydrates from certain types of vegetables). Cakes, any flour pastry, pasta, potatoes and sugar in its pure form - all not for you.

Frozen cheese should not be considered hard cheeses - they contain too much carbohydrates and other impurities. Better give up this cheap product.

In order to determine у.е. In each dish, you need to know its composition, in addition, at first it is better to "sit" on the dietary intake of the house, because only with the help of kitchen scales you can calculate the required number of points, for example, in the soup. At home, it will not be difficult to weigh the desired portion, to calculate its weight in points and to get ahead - whether to absorb everything entirely, or to limit to half the plate. Thus, the Kremlin diet, the table of ready meals is much more convenient to use than a long list of all possible foods, types of food individually. A full table of points of the Kremlin diet is useful for periodic analysis and control of the menu.
