Saikov's diet is one of the popular "emergency" methods of dumping excess weight. It starts the mechanism of losing weight due to the fact that it contains extremely few calories, and low percentage of fats. The basis of the diet is kefir and various additives. Diet Saikova - the classic "diet schedule."You will have to choose products from the limited list, eat by the hour and strictly limit the consumption of salt.
Saikova diet rules
First of all, the Saikova diet is created for people whose excess weight exceeds 10 kg. In just a week on a diet, you will lose up to 6 kg. Then it is necessary to "relax" one week from a strict diet, eating small portions of vegetable, fish and dairy low-fat dishes. Then the Saikov diet should be repeated. Alternate week of diet with a week of rest should be until the result. Then, in order not to gain excess weight again, you will need to spend weekly dietary cycles twice a year. Ostensibly, this normalizes the metabolism.
In addition to following
1. Eat 6 times a day, strictly at 8.00, 10.00, 12.00, 14.00, 16.00, 18.00."After six," you can not eat, even kefir.
2. Drink half an hour before meals, infusion of a single bag of chamomile tea, a teaspoon of St. John's wort, a teaspoon of dry marigold. Herbs should be brewed in 200 ml of water as a tea, and take a quarter cup.

Pros and cons of the Saikova diet
So, the diet menu of Saikov is strict and meager. You practically will not eat anything, except kefir with small additives. Supporters of the diet believe that only 7 days can be "tolerated" in order to quickly get rid of excess kilograms. But will the diet be effective in the long term?
First of all, the diet Saikova is extremely poor in fiber and proteins, which means that she is hungry. You will suffer quite a lot from hunger. Headaches, dizziness, weakness and nausea are not excluded. Especially often these symptoms are manifested in those who by nature have low blood pressure or are accustomed to start the day with a cup of coffee. St. John's wort, of course, raises the tone, but here it really does not cheer you up.
Dr. Saikov's diet is not combined with sports, nor even with the banal active way of life of a working person. Think, for you to really interrupt every 2 hours to eat? And carry kefir and potatoes? Doctor Saikov once said that this diet should be spent on vacation or on weekends. He does not recommend dieting until the end of the six-month period after childbirth.
The key to success is not only and not so much the diet of Saikova. You should adhere to the restrictive diet and in the "week of rest".Little is written about this, but Saikov does not recommend exceeding the bar of 1200 kcal. To keep weight after such a diet is quite difficult. When you lose weight, you will have to add literally 100 kcal per month, so that the slow metabolism does not make itself felt in the increment in kilograms. Yes, the diet Saikova, like other low-calorie plans, significantly slows down the metabolism. So think, do you need such a "quick" weight loss with consequences or better to choose a diet softer.
Important: before you go on a diet for Dr. Saikov consult a doctor.
