The hospital diet: lose 5 kilos in 5 days!
Lose 5 kilos in 5 days? Which can! The hospital has long been known as a diet to lose weight very fast. It’s very simple.
The hospital diet is a crash diet. With a crash diet you eat much less than the body needs and you can lose a lot of weight in a short time. The hospital diet was originally intended to help people who, for example, have to undergo surgery and who are overweight, lose weight in the very short term. However, it is now also used to simply lose weight ‘quickly’.
There are several crash diets on the market. The hospital diet is the best known of these. You can follow the diet for five days and then just eat a healthy diet and exercise a lot to keep your weight off. Optionally, you can follow a crash diet again later. Do not follow the diet for more than five days in a row, as you risk missing out on important nutrients.
