In the old days in Russia, thin woman was not considered ideal.
On the other hand, it was in fashion curvy ladies.
Completeness was an indicator of health.
A "thin", on the contrary, was synonymous with the word "bad".
Perhaps that is why traditional recipes, handed down totoday, not so much linked with losing weight, but with the improvement of the body. Everyone knows that a healthy body does not suffer from being overweight. In it everything is normal, everything is in harmony.
What did our grandmother to stayhealthy and beautiful? First they ate properly. Their diet consisted of infusions, decoctions, juices. For example, birch sap. It was mined in the early spring and take to improve metabolism. Juice perishable, it is necessary to drink fresh throughout the day.
Cabbage juice cleanses the body. Drink it in the morning on an empty stomach, then between meals. In one day, drink 2-3 cups. It is not necessary to drink cabbage juice, if you have kidney problems or bowel.
Tomato juice, drunk before meals, gives a feeling of saturation because of its caloric content.
Cucumber - a good stimulant of metabolism. Contraindications for them - gastritis and gastric ulcer.

I must admit that not all delighted with the tastethese juices. You can fix this by diluting them with other juices, such as orange or carrot. Or add the juice chopped parsley, dill, basil.
Any juice consumed not later than 15minutes after cooking. However, regular intake does not mean the absence of diet. This is more than a supplement to it. And we must not forget that our grandmother very much moved and engaged in physical labor. All together serve their beauty, strength and health.
