When you consume proteins and fats, the functioning of internal organs, as it slows down the operation of the kidneys, reduced production of gastric juice because the digestion of plant foods the body requires less effort, etc. If after a month of abstaining from “heavy” foods drastically start to use them, the load on the digestive organs and the liver and kidneys will increase twice.
The digestion products of protein origin, the body spends more energy and time from the moment of acceptance of such food to complete the digestion takes at least 6 hours. In the end, starting to take everything products after fasting, you can get in the hospital with an acute digestive disorder.

What products to start Christmas Breakfast
Returning to protein products, nutritionists suggest to start with the eggs. Egg protein is most easily digested. You can add a bit of milk products of origin, but better low-fat yogurt or a slice of low fat cheese. By lunchtime, when your digestive system can handle eggs and kefir, want something more hearty.
