Reviews and results
Marina Valerievna Krasilnikova, nutritionist:
“The diet of Polina Gagarina, in general, is pretty good. However, I would not recommend sticking to it until the person achieves the desired result. I consider the optimal period of adherence to such a diet to be 14 days, but no more. Many people wonder how Polina managed to keep her skin toned. There is no secret, you just need to play sports and visit a beautician. Procedures such as wrapping, massage, cedar barrel help a lot."

That's enough for me, great diet."
