But we should not forget that the watermelon diet has contraindications. 

A strong diuretic effect, which causes water-melons, helps to get rid of the crystals of various salts, which are formed in the kidneys and eventually turn into sand and stones. The kidneys are cleared out the sand and small pebbles, to facilitate their release are encouraged to take warm (38-39) bath. But if you have already formed in the kidney stones, watermelon diet can trigger their migration, which causes severe pain – renal colic. So, before you start the watermelon diet, it is desirable to pass ultrasound and make sure that no stones are found in the kidney.

Watermelon is not suitable diet for diabetics, because watermelon contains carbohydrate, contraindicated in this disease. Do not use watermelon diet with cancer and severe cardiovascular diseases.

Since watermelon has a strong diuretic effect, the body is actively displayed not only the extra salt, but also vital potassium and magnesium. In order to fill, be sure to take a pill asparkama (2-3 tons per day), which can be cheaply bought at any drugstore.

After 5 days of watermelon diet, porridge on the water are added, a small amount of lean meat or fish, raw vegetables, low-fat cottage cheese, which is recommended to eat for breakfast and lunch. Number of watermelon eaten, respectively, decreases. In general, watermelon diet lasts 15 days, the average weight loss of 7-8kg.
