Diets based on eating a large amount of protein have long earned themselves a reputation and are very popular among people who want to lose weight. The most famous of all protein diets are the Kremlin Diet and the Meat Diet. Their popularity is due, first of all, to the fact that, following these diets, you can eat a variety of foods. The Kremlin and meat diets have points of contact, but they should not be confused. If the Kremlin diet is, in fact, a constant principle of nutrition, calculated for a long time, then the meat diet is not so difficult and it is recommended to follow it for ten days or two weeks.
Before embarking on a meat diet, you need to understand what its essence is and how it affects the body. Protein is one of the most essential substances for the human body, its building material. Protein must be included in the daily diet. The protein intake should be approximately 500 grams each day. Measure should be felt in everything. Carbohydrates are as essential to the body as proteins. Therefore, a protein-based meat diet that excludes carbohydrates should last a maximum of 14 days.
If you decide to follow a meat diet and lose weight with it, keep in mind that foods such as flour and potatoes, sweets and fruits, dairy and sour milk products, grains and cereals, and alcohol should be excluded from your menu. Among all varieties of vegetables, you can choose any with the exception of carrots and legumes. Observing a meat diet, it is undesirable to drink carbonated and sugary drinks. The drink rule has to do not only with the timing of the meat diet, but also with the general eating pattern.
As the name suggests, a meat diet involves eating meat. The specific meat and the way it is cooked can be selected based on your own preferences. A meat diet allows you to eat almost any meat – beef and veal, pork and chicken, rabbit and turkey. The meat can be stewed with vegetables, boiled or fried. The only limitation on how the meat is cooked is that only olive oil can be used when frying the meat. However, fried meat should not be overused.
Other products permitted by the rules of the meat diet are any river and sea fish, chicken and quail eggs. These foods can either be fried in olive oil or boiled. Of those vegetables that are allowed by the rules of a meat diet, you can prepare salads, which are best seasoned with lemon juice. The use of salt in food preparation is highly undesirable.
The positive result of a meat diet depends on adherence to all the rules. Jumping off the diet will not only not give the desired result, but can also aggravate the situation. Meanwhile, strict adherence to diet rules is not yet a complete set of measures for proper weight loss. Observing any diet, it would be good to remember the benefits of physical activity and sports. If a person leads a sedentary life, then even the strictest diet, most likely, will not lead him to the cherished goal of losing weight. But, as soon as you start performing even the most elementary exercises, the result will not keep you waiting. In other words, during the period of adherence to a meat diet, you can not only lose weight, but also tone your muscles and even correct your figure. And the skin of the whole body will get toned, and it will look young, healthy and attractive.
