What is the high protein diet?
Does choosing the high protein diet help to lose weight quickly and sustainably?
Who is it for?
Grow up mind gives you the instructions for using the high protein diet!
As its name indicates, the high protein diet is based on proteins,
most often of animal origin.
The intake of an intense amount of protein during
this diet is through the consumption of specifically protein sachets.
These sachets are bought in pharmacy or parapharmacy and allow to lose weight quickly.
The main advantage of the high protein diet is that if the person follows the recommendations,
no return to excess weight is possible.
The starter phase: 1st stage of the high protein diet
This phase corresponds to the beginning of the diet, which usually lasts three days.
This step can be difficult because it modifies the diet.
It also involves the massive introduction of protein-specific
food supplements to replace natural protein intake.
Protein supplements are in the form of sachets,
but also snack bars or ready meals.
The slimming phase of the high protein diet
This is the moment when the degree of thinning is at its maximum level.
To avoid any form of deficiency, this phase must combine slimming and balanced diet,
by gradually introducing the minimum amount of food covering the needs of minerals, fiber, vitamins and calcium.
Thus, protein sachets are gradually replaced by natural foods
such as rice, potato, dough and bread for slow sugar.
For example, the midday meal in the starter phase is equivalent
to two protein packets for all things protein.
In the slimming phase, these two bags are to be replaced
by natural proteins including natural dairy products,
vegetables, egg, poultry, lean fish or lean meat.
In this thin phase, restrictions are to be followed
in the consumption of meat and fish.
The transition phase: 3rd stage of the high protein diet
This phase is spread over one to two weeks depending on the need.
The principle used here is to gradually replace the protein sachet of breakfast
(maintained in the slimming phase) by two slices of buttered bread.
Next, stop the slice of bread twice a week by eating pulses or starch
(potatoes, corn, rice, semolina or paste) instead.
Introduce also the authorized fruits in small quantity,
these fruits are the strawberry (no more than 100 grams),
the watermelon, the melon (200 grams maximum), the apricot,
the kiwi, the plum, the pear, the apple and citrus fruits.
From the menu of the slimming stage to that of the transition stage,
there is no great difference, nor a grandiose change, apart from these small substitutions.
Towards the end of this phase, it is allowed to gently introduce the carbohydrate,
without promoting non-assimilable fats such as pastries, pastries, cake and sweets.
The stabilization phase
This phase is crucial to keep its size in the long term
and to avoid weight gain that will be even greater in this case.
It marks the end of the diet whose goal is to keep fit with a well-balanced diet
without gaining excess weight and living a healthy life with a stable weight.
It lasts about 3 weeks to get used to adapt a hygienic way of feeding without abuse.
This phase consists of adapting the body to this new way of eating by gradually
introducing forbidden foods, while continuously controlling the weight.
The ideal caloric intake helps to keep a good sporty and physical pace, while having a fine size.
The limits of the high protein diet
The main difficulty of this diet-based meal replacement diet is
that it is very restrictive and monotonous.
Let’s face it: you have to be very motivated to carry it out.
