The 1-day diet after Carnival

The 1-day diet after Carnival

The diet after Carnival is a regimen limited in the amount of sugar and fat, ideal as a diet of the day after. For example, it can be done the day after Shrove Thursday or Shrove Tuesday, but it can be extended for a maximum of 2 days.

The diet is combined with two very simple DIY herbal teas with a hypoglycemic effect.
It is a low-calorie diet that allows us to eat often and not feel on a diet.

The principle of the diet after Carnival is to make several snacks to stabilize the blood sugar level.

In this way we can therefore avoid the imbalances that can arise in the transition from a period in which we ate a lot of sugars to a sugar-free diet to detoxify.

Like any lightning diet, this diet shouldn’t be extended for more than two consecutive days as it only provides 1100 calories per day. For those who want to do a three-day diet , find a detoxifying menu in this article.
