We assume that everyone has heard of and tried kiwi before, but only select few are familiar with its possibilities and usefulness when it comes to losing excess weight.
Before we reveal these intriguing details, let’s first see where kiwi comes from, why is it healthy and so on.
Kiwi originally comes from China where it’s proclaimed as national fruit. In addition to China, this fruit can be found in Japan and Siberia. It’s most commonly found on altitudes between 600 and 2000 meters above sea level.
The most useful part of the plant is most certainly the fruit itself, which is primarily used for eating, while the whole plant has a variety of uses, including use in cosmetic industry.
What is kiwi good for and what does it contain?
- It’s loaded with vitamins. Kiwi contains a lot of different vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamins of B variety, as well as vitamins E and K. This makes it not only a great source of vitamins, but an excellent immunity booster as well.
- It contains a lot of minerals as well. Apart from vitamins, kiwi also contains important minerals, including: calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and phosphorous.
- It’s great for treating cold. Thanks to the vitamins and minerals it contains, kiwi is an exceptionally efficient natural remedy for cold. You can eat it raw or put it in a juicer with a blend of other fruits for a “vitamin bomb”.
- It clears the skin. It can be used for facial care and skin care in general, especially in conjunction with bananas.

These five are just some of the numerous benefits kiwi is able to provide the human body with. Among these benefits is another important one – the ability to help with weight reduction efforts. That’s precisely why kiwi diet came to be. We will introduce you to the intricacies of this particular diet in the text below.
Kiwi diet – advice and instructions
Before you take this diet on, we must say that it’s meant only for people with a healthy stomach, good digestion and good health in general.
Kiwi diet lasts four days during which kiwi is consumed alongside each meal.
An example of meals during these four days is as follows:
Breakfast: you can have one kiwi, a cup of yogurt and a piece of toast.
Snack nr. 1: it’s enough to have just one ripe kiwi.
Lunch: you can eat as much kiwi as you wish. People who love this fruit will be especially delighted with this. A plate of vegetable soup is also a good choice alongside kiwi.
Snack nr.2: as it was the case with snack nr.1, you can have a single kiwi.
Dinner: a single kiwi and two hard boiled eggs are and advisable dinner option. After the meal, you can sip a cup of mild herbal tea to soothe your stomach and mind before sleep. Chamomile tea is an ideal choice. Do not add sugar or any other sweeteners.
Kiwi diet – notes and past experiences
While on diet, you are not allowed to drink any other beverages except water and tea, except perhaps coffee, but with no sugar. It lasts four days and must not be maintained for a longer time than that. You must take a break lasting at least four days before taking it on again.
Previous experience shows that during the four days this diet lasts one can lose up to two kilograms of excess weight, which is great.
Persons who have problems with anemia should not uphold this diet. This diet is not considered particularly healthy because it’s based on a very low calorie intake, so make sure you thought it through before taking it on. We should notify you that some internet articles suggest this diet is supposed to be upheld for staggering six days. That’s simply incorrect. Don’t even take it into consideration. This is a very extreme diet and in no case should it last longer than four days.
Before starting the diet, make sure to consult your doctor or nutritionist about it.
