Thanks to scientific research and new modern approaches of nutritionists, diets are becoming more balanced. The desire to lose weight is not correlated with abstract restrictions that lead to disruption of the body's systems, but with a conscious choice to restructure your taste habits, improve the quality of life and your well-being. It is important to understand that there is no one-size-fits-all nutritional system. It is important to correlate your diet with your lifestyle, personal tastes and your health.

The key feature of this nutritional system is the maximum reduction in carbohydrates and the average amount of protein. The body gets most of its calories from foods rich in fat. As dubious as it sounds, research suggests that such a diet can be beneficial. Fat can be both vegetable and animal (depending on personal preference). With such a diet, it is necessary to exclude from the diet all types of sweets, starchy foods, milk and yoghurts, potatoes, pasta, rice and all vegetables except green and white, sauces and alcohol. Trans fats should also not be included in the diet. Avocados, cream, sour cream, coconut and butter, meat and fish, eggs and low-carb cheeses are becoming priority foods. According to Zana Morris, author of The High Fat Diet, such a diet does not make you feel hungry.which usually leads to discomfort and breakdowns. At the same time, the body, thanks to healthy fats, is rebuilt and begins to receive energy not from carbohydrates, but from fats.
Important: with such a food system, do not forget about control over the portion size, otherwise there is a high risk not only not to lose extra pounds, but also to gain additional ones. The fact is that several years ago nutritionists and the media wrote that with such a ketone diet, the body begins to more effectively "burn" excess fat. However, modern research proves the opposite, so the high effectiveness of a fat diet is confirmed not by the uncontrolled absorption of fat-containing foods, but by the deliberate replacement of carbohydrates with fats and control of the amount of food consumed, taking into account your physiological data. The control of a gastroenterologist will also not be superfluous.

Like any nutritional system, the anti-candida diet also has its fans and opponents. There are also those who consider it not particularly effective in the fight against candida, but effective in normalizing weight. Since the anti-candidal diet is based on the exclusion of foods with yeast and sugar in any of its forms, bread products, all types of sweets, including dried fruits, honey, syrups, sauces, fruits with a high carbohydrate content (bananas, grapes, etc.)), juices, nuts, vinegar and some vegetables. The emphasis in nutrition is on greens, green vegetables and coconut oil as one of the most effective natural remedies for candida. Meat, fish, eggs occupy no more than 40 percent with such a diet. Since with an anti-candidal diet, the diet becomes more "green" in every sense,the amount of vitamins and microelements received increases. In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it.”
Important: With a fairly aggressive low-carb diet like the Atkins diet, you need to listen to your body. If the general state of health has worsened, fatigue and weakness have appeared, it is worth adjusting the nutrition program. For good health, it is important not to forget to eat several servings of complex carbohydrates - buckwheat, barley, quinoa and others.

It is a mistake to call the Juicing Diet, as it is dangerous to stay on juices only. The gastrointestinal tract is especially at risk. That is why such a system is usually called detox - cleansing the body - and practiced for one to three days. Juice detox programs take into account the right mix of amino acids, vitamins and trace elements derived from fruits and vegetables. Various spices are also added to juices, for example, ginger or ginseng, for greater efficiency. There is no scientific evidence that any toxins are actually removed this way. However, jusing has its fans who like the feeling of "lightness" after the course and the habit of eating in small portions, which may appear during this time.
The founder of the KM20 concept store Olga Karput told how doza KM20 jusing programs are composed: “Our programs are selected based on human biorhythms. They do not differ by days of the week, and within one day we have chosen everything so that it is comfortable, there is no acute feeling of hunger. We have three levels of programs in doza KM20: initial Hallucinate with Me, intermediate Tripping Over Moscow, suitable for everyone, and super-advanced overDOZA. Sometimes I sit on it. Each program starts with a rejuvelak - and this is perhaps our know how. In any case, I have not met him in other programs. Rejuvelac is a fermented wheat germ drink. It is an ideal natural and vegan probiotic, perfectly regulates digestion, has a beneficial effect on the body. Conditionally, does everythingwhat they promise in advertising of fermented milk products. Further, in each program, we distribute juices, shots, kombucha and nut milk so that a person on detox would feel even and good throughout the day."
Important: As mentioned above, juicing as a food system is hazardous to health. That is why, after one or three days, green salads, fish, seafood and vegetable protein (dishes with legumes, tofu, chia seed puddings) should be added to the juice diet. If you have had any stomach problems at least once in your life, you should consult with a gastroenterologist before taking the course.

Despite the pros and cons of a diet that is free of animal products, modern nutritionists emphasize the effectiveness of such a diet for weight loss and improved health. Medical News Today reports that most vegetarians are in fact excluding meat and fish, but not avoiding eggs, honey and dairy products. At the same time, statistics from the Oxford University Cancer Research Group in the UK indicate that most vegetarians and vegans have lower body weight than those who eat meat and fish.
Important: such a diet, like any other, requires a conscious approach, the selection of plant analogues of important nutrients, consistency and regular examinations by specialists. Before deciding to exclude meat, fish and other animal products from your diet, you need to take blood tests. After a month of a balanced vegetarian or vegan diet, it is worth retesting to make sure your health has not deteriorated, and then at least once a year.>
