Such a concept as a slag-free diet is different from the usual diets used for weight correction. The main difference is that it allows you to cleanse the body of accumulated toxins and toxins, normalize the digestive system and even get rid of cellulite. As a rule, such nutrition is prescribed for medical studies of the abdominal cavity (ultrasound, irrigoscopy, colonoscopy) or before routine surgical interventions.
Such indications for use are related to the fact that the body must get rid of harmful substances as much as possible in order to obtain a reliable diagnostic picture. In some cases, food is used as a discharge, to prevent slagging, to eliminate problems with the gastrointestinal tract. The diet can be used without medical appointment, so to use it or not, everyone decides for himself, but there are a number of common indications:
- Dangerous ecological situation in the place of residence.
- Frequent overeating, eating harmful food.
- The diet consists of products with an increased number of animal fats, starch, various synthetic additives.
- Harmful habits: smoking, alcoholism, etc.
- Passive and overweight.
In addition to the above recommendations, there are a number of symptoms that indicate violations:
- Rapid fatigue and loss of strength, irritability, problems with sleep, depression.
- Dysfunction of the digestive tract, frequent attacks of nausea, constipation.
- Frequent skin rashes, excessive dryness or fatness.
- Deterioration of the condition of hair and nails, pain in the joints.
- Aggravation of allergic and chronic diseases.
- Dental problems: stomatitis, periodontal disease, caries.
- Disorders of the cardiovascular and nervous system.

The basis of the diet is low-calorie food. The diet includes easily digestible and refined foods. Splitting, they leave no residue that complicates digestion. Most often, the therapeutic diet is observed for 3-7 or more days. The planned purification for preventive purposes can be repeated 1-2 times a month. Some nutritionists say that with the right approach to eating and drinking a lot of fluids, you can get rid of 3-5 kg of extra weight in 7 days.
Slag-free diet before colonoscopy
Many diagnostic measures require special training. A slag-free diet before colonoscopy implies restrictions in food for 3-7 days. This allows you to get the most reliable results of the survey.
Colonoscopy is one of the most effective methods of colon examination. With its help, you can conduct an examination of the digestive organ along its entire length and evaluate its condition. During the procedure, a special probe is used.
From the diet it is necessary to exclude fatty and fried foods, meat, fresh vegetables and fruits, alcohol, carbonated drinks, confectionery. Contraindicated evening meals. Dinner should be 3-4 hours before bedtime and consist of sour-milk products, water or green tea. Easily digestible food prevents the formation of indigestible residues.
As a rule, a diet is prescribed two days before the examination. This makes it possible to bring the organism back to normal and increase the informative value of the diagnostic procedure in the detection or treatment of diseases.
Slag-free diet before operation
With indications for surgical intervention, the patient must undergo a number of preparatory procedures. Slag-free diet before operation is included in this complex. Restrictions in nutrition are necessary for cleaning the intestines, so that after the application of anesthesia, there are no undesirable reactions, in the form of nausea and vomiting. The diet is observed for 3-5 days and is stopped 12 hours before the operation. During this period, it is contraindicated to take any food.
The slag-free diet should consist of:
- Low-fat meat and fish
- Boiled vegetables
- Gallet biscuits, crackers
Under the ban fall:
- Wholegrain and dairy products
- Fresh fruits and vegetables
- Alcohol, carbonated drinks, strong coffee and tea
- Various spicy spices
- Vegetable and animal fats
Compliance with these recommendations helps to minimize the risks of complications. If the patient has broken the slag-free diet or did not comply with it at all, this can lead to serious consequences. First of all, it's vomiting under anesthesia - vomit gets into the lungs, complicating the work of doctors. Medical statistics recorded a number of deaths for this reason. Vomiting attacks complicate the action of anesthetics, so the patient excruciates from anesthesia.
With the difficulties of the pre-operational period, smokers also face. Many of them are frightened by the upcoming operation, so they give up the addiction the day before the operation. This does not affect its outcome in any way, but it negatively affects the recovery period. That's why doctors recommend not to smoke 7-10 days before the planned surgical intervention. This rule applies to alcohol. The above recommendations and a slag-free diet are relevant in the event that before the surgery are prepared in advance for 1-3 weeks. In case of emergency, the surgeon will not postpone the procedure, and wait for cleaning the digestive tract.
