Low-calorie diet

It’s one that delivers 1000-1800 kcal. In this diet, the amount of protein, fat, and carbohydrates is strictly determined. The consumption of animal fats, processed products, and sugar is limited. It is important to increase the number of vegetables consumed. The amount of kilos that can be lost on such a diet depends on the individual needs and on the number of calories that are reduced in daily demand.

If it is 700 kcal, you should lose 0.7 kg per week on it. It is a diet that can teach healthy habits. A ready menu will show you how to eat, and the recipes attached to it will teach you how to prepare healthy dishes. It is a good solution for a slimming person because he does not have to plan it, but only to do shopping. After some time of weight loss, one should verify the calorie content of the diet and make corrections to it, so that it is up-to-date with the new body parameters.

Sample, free menus can be found on the internet, you just need to calculate your needs. Low-calorie diets also include a very low-energy diet that delivers up to 800 kcal per day. It can not be carried out without medical supervision and can not be used for more than 3 weeks.

Protein diet

In this diet, 30% of energy comes from protein, 30% from fat, and the rest from carbohydrates. They are not recommended for people suffering from kidney and liver diseases.

Besides, the use of such a diet is not cheap.

Low carbohydrate diet

Slimming diets Atkins and Kwaśniewski are characterized by high-fat content. It is 50-60% of the entire energy pool. Protein in this diet accounts for 20-30% of energy, and carbohydrates only 20-50 g per day. It is a diet low in dietary fiber, B vitamins, and flavonoids.

The aforementioned change in eating habits is most possible on a diet that controls the number of calories (low calorie), because being on it, you can easily put them all into everyday life.
