Pineapple diet

The pineapple diet is based on citrus – pineapples and grapefruits. The meals are arranged in such a way that two of them contain the above-mentioned fruits. Pineapples provide the body with bromelain, an enzyme that helps digestion, and grapefruits provide fiber to cleanse the body of toxins. Five meals a day are eaten – three main meals and two smaller ones. You should drink teas and mineral water, at least 1.5 liters a day. The diet can be used for 1-2 weeks. It can be repeated after a month of break.
