If you want to eat and to lose lose weight at the same time, then this chrono – diet is the right solution for you. Even though this diet is used in France since 1986, we’ve just started using it.With this diet you do not have to keep track of the number of calories and amount of food you consume, but you have to eat at the certain time of the day and properly combine foods.
The basic rule in this diet is the distance between meals to be a minimum of four and a maximum of six hours, ideally five.
For breakfast you can eat anything: carbohydrates, proteins, fats. But you should avoid wheat and corn. On the other permitted side you can use flour such as barley, rye, buckwheat and oats. You can eat meat products as well, even bacon. But, you need to be sure they are homemade and without any additives.
For lunch you should consume more proteins, such as beef or lamb, but without carbohydrates or bread. If you eat carbohydrates then beside them you have to eat vegetables. You also need to eat more fresh vegetables in the form of salad.
You can eat sweets and fruit only in the afternoon, between lunch and dinner, not in the morning. The best choice is dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa, and dried fruit for example, figs or prunes.
Afternoon Snack – you should eat a small bit of vegetable fats: avocado, olives, nuts, peanut butter, honey or 30 grams of dark chocolate—a little over two tablespoons worth. Or fruit.
For dinner, you should also consume foods high in protein, such as: chicken breast or fish. Sometimes, you can add cheese to your salad, but that’s when you are no longer in the weight loss process. You should consume raw and fresh vegetables and salads as well.
Well, these are some of the basic rules that you should follow in your entire life, because this is not a classic diet. However, if you have a problem with your weight and you have a lot of weight to lose, then you should go to the restrictive period developed by Dr. Ana Grifing. In this restrictive period, you shouldn’t consume snacks and fruits, because they contain high amounts of sugar. Also, you shouldn’t consume starchy vegetables and carbohydrates for lunch.
Even when you are in the restrictive period, you shouldn’t be worried with how much food did you eat, but you mustn’t eat anything between meals. Absolutely nothing! And you can also follow this rule after the restrictive period as well.
