The next morning, the water is drained, one full spoonful of rice is taken and the cereal is again filled with cold water. Spoon rice cooked for 4-5 minutes, eat on an empty stomach without additives. After 1 hour you can eat other food. The next morning, they take another spoonful of rice, and change the water in the jar. So, do until the rice is over.

During the week, rice is washed daily under running water for 10–15 minutes. To do this, you can tie a gauze to the pan so that the rice does not flow. After a week, the cereal is dried and put in a paper bag. Cook for breakfast on a tablespoon as usual porridge, only boiled rice should be washed with warm water.

The amount of rice is not limited, but it must be unsalted and without additives - spices, oil, and so on. After 9 pm do not eat.
During the cleansing should use foods rich in potassium: greens, dried fruit, baked potatoes. The fact is that soaked rice removes potassium from the body. With a lack of this element, weakness and rapid heartbeat can be observed.
