The ideal weight is based on a sustainable balance. In view of every person, the ideal weight is the one with which we feel good, our body needs to be fit and in good health. Knowing is essential before starting any diet. To further clarify the concept, we say that it is the weight that can be achieved without losing health, and we can easily maintain it.
To achieve the ideal weight, there is a simple trick which is to flip the energy balance i.e. reduce the energy intake and increase the calorie burn, so as to favor the elimination of the fat reserves. To succeed, it is preferable to opt for a progressive method.
Here we present a weight loss plan proposed by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French nutritionist who has achieved unprecedented success in nutrition.
Dukan Diet – Attack Phase
This phase involves drastic reduction in energy inputs selecting particular foods, so you can surprise the body and cause rapid weight loss up to 2 or 3 kilos in the first phase while preserving the muscle mass. The protein (lean meat) is good in order to quench the food cravings and feed the muscle mass and the vegetables which are rich in fiber, water, vitamins and minerals, prevent deficiencies and fatigue.
What Do We Eat?
Lean proteins (fish , seafood and shellfish, soy, beef entrecote except, poultry without skin, without MG eggs, ham light, 0% fat milk) along with vegetables and you can eat all you want. For a quick weight loss, you can start with a diet exclusively of lean protein (no vegetables) for 1-3 days.
- 1 drink unsweetened, 1 milk skimmed, skimmed one protein food
Lunch and Dinner
- Protein Foods: lean meat (150 g minimum) or fish (200 g minimum)
- Vegetables (as many as you like)
How Long it Should Go?
