It happens to everyone sooner or later you want to lose a few pounds, and for their own personal pleasure or for a health reason. What we seek is almost always a slimming fast and without special waivers, but are two factors that usually do not get along with low-calorie diets. The experts tell us that the pounds are lost giving up tasty food, having patience and doing sport every day. All these things put together are the reason for the failure of many low-calorie diets. However, there is one that ensures effective results in a short time and that frees us from the nightmare of weighing each time a food. It is the protein diet. Unfortunately, in many advise against too rich nutrients of protein, so what to do? Let’s see how to handle this kind of power.


First explain what is: the protein diet is a diet where the intake of carbohydrates is very limited (sometimes zero) is required while a high intake of protein. A high-protein diet may be divided as follows: Protein: 55% Carbohydrate: 35% Fat: 10%. It has the power to lose weight quickly, while not affecting lean body mass. The tissues of the body are in fact firm and well defined, and the only one to be consumed is fat. The restriction of carbohydrates is not healthy, but also a massive use of protein and weight can hurt the kidneys. Hence it is recommended only for short periods and must be followed with the constraint to drink at least two liters of water a day.

Having to eliminate carbs as much as possible, the scheme will include a daily breakfast with skim milk, protein (usually eggs), while lunch and dinner must be present meat / fish and vegetables seasoned little. A typical day might look like this: Breakfast: 1 cup of skim milk and two eggs, 1 coffee bitter; Snack: 3 whole grain crackers; Lunch: roast beef with salad and 1 piece of fruit; Snack: 1 low-fat yogurt or 1 fruit; Dinner: baked sea bream and 1 slice of rye bread. The doses are almost never indicated for proteins, because in theory they can eat until satiated.

After referring to the type of food to manage your diet, now we see its duration. So that there are no repercussions on the physical, the ketogenic can be followed for up to a week or 10 days. The calorie is really very low (hardly reaches 1000 kcal.) and the risk is also to regain the pounds once you re-introduce carbohydrates. Looking for a suitable solution, you may be able to enter the carbs for 1 day every 4 protein. The negative effects will therefore be limited and with the right fluid intake the diet can be followed in any case for a few weeks, obtaining a slimming real and healthy.
