Cellulose (fiber) has a number of beneficial properties. Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC), obtained from cotton fibers by cleaning and fine grinding, is not degraded by digestive enzymes and is very hygroscopic. Once in the gastrointestinal tract, it reduces appetite, absorbs toxins, cleanses and stimulates the intestines. This led to the use of cellulose for weight loss and cleansing of the body. You can lose weight with the help of MCC as follows.
Microcrystalline cellulose tablets
Calculate the required number of MCC tablets based on the daily dose and the duration of the course of taking the drug. In the first days, the dose should be no more than 10 tablets per day, divided into 3 doses, then gradually increases to 20-30 tablets. Do not take more than 50 MCC tablets per day. To get a noticeable effect, the drug must be used for at least 3 to 4 weeks.
Cellulose absorbs in the stomach and intestines not only harmful, but also useful substances, creating a deficiency of vitamins and microelements. Therefore, purchase multivitamins and calcium supplements at the pharmacy. Take them in accordance with the annotation throughout the course of the MCC.
Find the right low-calorie diet for yourself with a total of no more than 1,000 to 1,500 kilocalories per day. Develop at least a minimal exercise program. For example, do light morning exercises and walk more. Losing weight only on microcrystalline cellulose, eating fatty and sweet and wallowing on a soft sofa, you will not succeed.
Choose one of two ways to take MCC for weight loss: as a food supplement or as a pill.
Soften the tablets with a little water, respecting the dosage. Add when cooking to cereals, omelets, minced meat, dough, curd mass, etc. Cellulose is tasteless and fully retains its properties during heat treatment.
Take MCC tablets half an hour before meals with plenty of clean water. When swelling, the drug takes up a part of the stomach volume and creates a feeling of fullness, which lasts 2 - 3 hours. You can also substitute microcrystalline cellulose for one of the minor meals: lunch, afternoon tea, or dinner.
