The Liyepaysky diet is surrounded with an aura of riddles and paradoxes: her author avoids publicity, and the resolved diet includes sandwiches, canned food, mayonnaise and even nonalcoholic beer. On this menu since the end of the eightieth years the European political elite grows thin, and information on a method is handed down, being confirmed by eloquent changes of appearance of the growing thin: the champion of a liyepaysky diet managed to dump more than 120 kilograms, continuing to eat habitual food.
The main secret of a liyepaysky diet consists in the combination of products which is picked up in a special way allowing not to suffer from hunger and not to be reconciled with "tasteless" dietary food. Sports loads of time of observance of a diet are forbidden including not to urge on need of an organism for calories. The main objective of the growing thin — to get used it is necessary to that is less, but it is possible to support habitual family and social life, dividing a meal with relatives. However, having armed with a measured glass and a ruler for definition of the correct portion.

Liyepaysky diet: "father" and "sons"
Lev Yakovlevich Hazan who was glorified by a "liyepaysky diet", so doesn't love media exposure that some time even was considered as the fictional character. He seldom and reluctantly communicates with journalists and doesn't act in popular programs, however not only exists actually, but also is well and conducts reception as the practicing nutritionist. Today to Lev Hazan it is possible to register in consultation in Moscow and Nizhnevartovsk. According to some information, behind recommendations about fight against excess weight to it there come influential people of the country — but not from those whom we see in entertainment events. Including therefore "father" of a liyepaysky diet is called quite often "the most closed nutritionist of Europe".
Doctor Hazan got an education at Tartu University on office of sports medicine. After the termination of higher education institution I worked fifteen years the endocrinologist in the Latvian port city of Liepaya. Probably, taste of life on the picturesque coast of the Baltic Sea also inspired Lev Hazan on development of a diet at which observance it is possible to eat everything.
Having opened in 1986 in Riga the Latvia's first private medical office, doctor Hazan offered the patients the new plan of food called in honor of the seaside city. "The Liyepaysky diet" became known thanks to "gossip hotline": the first "graduates" of Hazan who dumped tens kilograms turned into walking advertizing of his technique.
The Russian journalist Alexey Bogomolov became the popular writer of dietary approach of Lev Hazan. In 2008 he weighed 218 kg and, having tried a set of diets, already despaired to grow thin. But once one of readers sent the letter where "the liyepaysky diet" was described to edition where Bogomolov worked. Having become interested in unusual recommendations, the journalist "sat down" on Hazan's method and as a result in three years got rid of 70 kilograms! The Liyepaysky diet, and also mysteriousness of her founder so carried away Alexey Bogomolov that he wrote the whole book about the plan of food which was for it saving. And during its preparation, adjusted by professional passion, nevertheless I found for Lev Hazan and it was convinced of his existence and that recommendations really have the author and are supported with his medical experience.
By the way, searching for information on a liyepaysky diet, it is quite often possible to meet the name "liyepaysky diet of Audryus Yozenos". However the Latvian psychiatrist isn't the founder of this technique — it also was at first the patient (I lost 50 kg with an initial weight 140), and Lev Hazan's pupil then betrayed. Now Yozenos practices as the nutritionist in Kazakhstan at full approval of "founding father" of a liyepaysky diet, helping to get rid of excess weight to Asian elite.
"McDonald's" among diets
Lev Hazan's approach to the menu on a diet can puzzle with the paradoxicality first. He is sure that separate food, a ban on meal after six evenings and in general any restrictions leading to sufferings and hunger became outdated, are harmful and deprived of sense. The doctor in general strictly forbids sports loadings while the liyepaysky diet lasts. According to philosophy of a liyepaysky diet excess weight is an illness, a metabolism illness, and sport won't bring benefit to the patient. To train it is necessary to begin, having already grown thin to facilitate a task to bone and muscular systems, and also heart with vessels.
At the same time, the author of the plan of food emphasizes that treats not an illness, but its consequences. Doctor Hazan tries to avoid definitions "healthy nutrition", specifying that properly it is possible to eat from the medical point of view, only lying in a hospital, and it is inaccessible to the modern person and it isn't necessary. Therefore in a diet of a liyepaysky diet usual products from a table of the average working Russian: salads, juice, canned food, sandwiches. The Liyepaysky diet is available, calculated on masses (according to Hazan, "as McDonald's") and can sustain it everyone, without spending money for rare especially useful ingredients and without suffering from taste of unusual and unloved dishes.
The approach to food helping to grow thin Lev Hazan defines cynically, but in fact is true: "to grow thin, it is necessary to guzzle less". It compares a habit of the modern person is without measure and carelessly with a condition of the pregnant woman who needs to feed one more being in herself. And in a body suffering from excess weight as if the "additional person" demanding food sits. Therefore to grow thin, according to Hazan, it is necessary quickly and resolutely that "another" understood that the food won't be any more, and I ceased to demand it.

The Liyepaysky diet is known that on it grow thin promptly, without hungering. Main conditions:

After 8 weeks the basic diet changes taking into account the pokhudatelnykh of achievements a little — it is supposed that Lev Hazan develops continuation of a diet individually for each of the patients. It not against persons interested to lose excess weight followed its technique in absentia, however is sure that articles and books about a liyepaysky diet are only capable to set the correct direction, but only direct contact with the doctor will allow to avoid mistakes and to cope with difficulties.
