Buckwheat is not only an extremely healthy food,  it can also help you lose weight and cleanse your organism. If you consume buckwheat for 2 weeks, you can end up losing more than 10 pounds.

Here’s how to prepare the buckwheat and start on a buckwheat “diet” that can help you lose those extra pounds:

– Buy a bag of toasted, whole grain buckwheat. You can find it in any health food store. Put some buckwheat in a large bowl and wash it with water. Strain the water. Grab a medium saucepan and add the buckwheat and some water. For 1 cup of buckwheat, use 1,5 cup of water.  Place the saucepan on the stove and bring it to simmer. Once it simmers, cover it with a lid and simmer on low temperature for 20 minutes. Your buckwheat is done! Add some healthy greens, lemon juice and some olive oil to make a salad or a few slices of your favorite fruit.

You can eat as much buckwheat as you want. Drink 1 liter of yogurt or kefir throughout the day and drink tons of water. You can also consume green tea and coffee, but no more than 2 cups a day. Foods you can also consume when on this diet include: apples, oranges, cabbage, green veggies, prunes and honey. Do not add salt.
