Moonstruck: The lunar cycle's effects on weight loss
Just as the moon affects the earth’s oceans and rivers, its gravitational pull also affects the water in our bodies. The moon diet takes advantage of this natural force to aid in flushing your body of harmful toxins and weight loss—some have claimed to lose six pounds in 24-hours. Here we take a look at tracking the moon phase for weight loss:
Moon diet plans — basic and extended.
The basic moon diet plan is essentially a 24-hour fasting day in which you consume only water and juice without added sugars. Do this either at the full moon or the new moon. During the fasting day, the moon’s influence helps your body cleanse itself of toxins and excess water weight. The extended moon diet plan begins with a fasting day on a full moon, as described by the basic moon diet plan, and then provides additional guidelines for weight loss and healthy eating during each of the major phases of the moon. As with any diet, it’s important to discuss with your physician before starting any weight loss plan.
Because the moon phase isn’t always easily visible, it can be difficult to identify its positioning throughout the lunar cycle. AcuRite Weather Stations track the moon phase for weight loss through simple lunar phase icons.
