This diet is very effective, given that people focus primarily on foods with high concentration of carbohydrates such as bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, etc. Such foods make people feel gorged, heavy and apathetic, and when a similar quantity of food limit in the daily routine, the energy per person rises considerably.
The diet focuses on eliminating carbohydrates from your diet (especially during the first days). Thus, the body will begin to dispose of ketones (very small fragments of carbon – by-products of incomplete combustion of fat) in quantities sufficient to lead to a significant decrease in body weight. Since carbohydrates are the main fuel for generating energy, in their absence, he will use for this purpose the stored fat, and the fact that the ketones are eliminated, hunger disappears and as a result, – the weight decreases. Observing this diet will improve your metabolism and your body will protect your bones.
Limiting foods high in carbohydrates can achieve quick results, but our advice is still to include in your diet 100 g carbohydrates, such as eating 200 grams of baked potato, pasta or rice, and fruits high in carbohydrates, such as bananas.
Pulses (peas and lentils), which both contain a high percentage of carbohydrates and proteins, as well as the combination of root vegetables (carrots, turnips) fruit with low water content (pineapple, mango and dried fruit are equally good food, and incorporating them in your diet, you will feel much more lively and vibrant than if completely off carbohydrates from your diet.
If you follow such a diet (and do not eat enough fruits and vegetables) do not forget that your body will need high doses of vitamin C, vitamin B complex, potassium and folic acid.
