One of the hardest times when we are following a diet, is usually when we face the bathroom scale. It is that critical moment in which it will be demonstrated if all our effort and our sacrifice have really been worth it.
And, with the amount of diets that periodically circulate through magazines and, above all, the internet, it seems impossible to hit the one that suits us best. With what we ended up developing a kind of dread to approach our bathroom scale every time we start a new one.
So, for that to happen no more and discover that the bathroom scale is actually your friend, today we present the best diets for this year.
DIETS NOT TO FEAR MORE TO THE BATHROOM SCALE
The European Medical Institute of Obesity (IMEO) has made a selection and classification of the most popular diets, which will be trend during this year 2017.
This classification of diets is based on the information obtained by the IMEO from the thousands of overweight and obese patients who pass through their consultations, and in prestigious publications.
It is a ranking supported by more than 20 specialists in obesity and health care, which include doctors, nutritionists, psychologists, naturopaths and digestive surgeons.
According to the IMEO, these diets propose a moderate weight loss (up to 1.5 kg per week and not more than 6 kg per month), are designed in the medium and long term and have an adaptation period to avoid the rebound effect. In addition, they use all food groups restricting the amounts and contribute to re-educate eating habits and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Of all of them, if you want to lose the fear to the scale of bath, we emphasize the following ones:
DIETS 2.0, LOSE WEIGHT THROUGH APPS
Diets 2.0 appear with the rise of smartphones and we propose to use the new technologies that these devices put within our reach to keep track of the foods we consume and the exercise we perform.
One of the main advantages of these diets 2.0 is that they provide a feeling similar to having a dietitian and a personal trainer 24 hours a day at our disposal.
DIET OF ALTERNATE DAYS
The diet of alternate days includes days to detoxify and reduce fluid retention, regime days with very tasty, balanced and easy to prepare meals and social days to enjoy dishes outside the diet.
In the diet of alternate days, the food is divided into blocks and the calories are not evenly distributed every day. This diet promotes fat loss, maintaining and improving muscle mass, favors the taking of foods that produce vitality in the daytime and those that produce repair and rest in the night hours.
In addition, the alternate-day diet allows several meals away from home and a few other prizes a week to reduce anxiety levels and not fear the bathroom scale.
The greatest advantage of the genetic diet is its maximum customization and adaptation to the person who follows it. The genetic diet begins with a simple genetic inheritance test, which consists of saliva extraction or a blood test. From this we study the information provided by several genes with an implication in the metabolism of the fats and sugars that we consume.
According to the results of this test and the tastes, preferences, habits and personal data of the patient as their age, sex or physical activity, the entire dietary pattern is elaborated.
With the genetic diet, each person learns to eat healthily and, depending on their needs, can burn the same calories daily.
The basis of the circadian diet are the circadian cycles, hormonal variations of our body that depend on the moment of the day in which we are. These cycles mark an activation phase that goes from six in the morning to six in the afternoon, which gives rise to the rest and repair phase, which begins at dusk and closes the night cycle. To lose weight it is necessary that we couple the consumption of food to these natural oscillations of our body.
The circadian diet decreases the consumption of fatty foods in the nocturnal hours, forcing during sleep our body uses its own reserve fats without detriment of our noble tissues, fomenting the loss of weight.
