The proposed diet is actually very practical and lasts a few days; however, if you hold it for more than a week or repeat it often, you will accentuate and accelerate the results. It all depends on your health and your weight; you can go on indefinitely until you feel the results.
Recommendations before starting the diet:
- Eat fresh, ripe and very clean apples, including the shell and even the seeds! Did you know that the little seeds of apples are a good source of antioxidants? So they will help to regenerate your skin and keep your cells healthy.
- Avoid washing apples with corrosive detergents or soaps as these may remain in the skin and are irritating to health. Wash apples with water and a brush, then soak in water and add special drops to disinfect fruits and vegetables. You should buy organic apples or without addition of chemicals or insecticides.
- Store apples in the refrigerator to keep them in good condition.
- Avoid adding salt, lemon, sugar, etc. It is best to consume the apple alone to have more success and better use of properties.
- Apple shouldn’t be combined with any other food, you must respect the digestion times for it to be maximized.
- You can substitute with apple juice, the condition is that it has to be 100% natural and do not drink with meals.
- You need to drink 2 liters of water every day.
