The Green Diet was developed by American experts. It is not difficult to guess that the main principle of the green diet is the consumption of green fruits and vegetables. According to the developers of this principle of dietary nutrition, the elimination of excess weight is carried out due to the effect on the body of a kind of negative calories. In other words, a green diet includes foods that provide the body with fewer calories than it needs to be processed and absorbed by the digestive system. Due to the return of the body’s efforts, the process of weight loss occurs. It is this statement that formed the basis of the frenzied popularity of the green diet.
However, many experts say that this assurance is not completely correct. In other words, they believe that the result of a green diet is based on the fact that green plant-based foods tend to be low in calories, no starch, and low in carbohydrates. However, green plant-based foods contain healthy fiber.
A green diet allows you to eat plant-based foods such as fresh green-skinned cucumbers and apples, green bell peppers and squash, fresh kiwi and green lettuce, spinach, parsley and dill, and cabbage leaves.
In addition to these plant foods, the green diet is allowed to eat small amounts of eggs and seafood, sea fish fillets and white chicken meat, legumes and dairy products. In other words, all those foods that are rich in protein compounds and fatty acids.
