The Yogurt Diet is formally and in details described in the book by Ana Luque titled “Yogurt Diet”. As stated, in just three days this diet can make you lose up to eight pounds. The effect of this diet is based on the probiotic benefits of yogurt that promote the health of the intestinal flora. Food is digested faster and it helps the body get rid of toxins.
This diet should not be practiced for more than three days in order not to damage the body’s need for fiber and vitamins.
When food is digested thoroughly, it improves intestinal and general health. The intestinal flora is composed of different bacteria that live in the human digestive tract that have a role in protecting the body from infection. Imbalances can occur due to stress, severe illness, use of antibiotics and poor diet. It is recommended to drink up to 2 liters of yogurt every day.
