DIET BY THE HOUR
Also called diet by the hour, this diet will guarantee you the loss of 11 – 15 pounds (5 – 7 kilograms) in two weeks, while respecting the principles of a healthy and balanced way of eating, without causing the well-known, painful hunger that may arise during a slimming regime.
We propose a typical menu as a starting point, from which you can diversify your nutritional plan during a week of diet. Although it seems strange, breakfast should be rich in foods with high fat content. A rich breakfast helps you avoid the feeling of fatigue that usually occurs a few hours before noon.
0.7 ounces (20 grams) of butter. Tea or coffee without milk or sugar
2.5 ounces (70 grams) of bread (contains slow-acting sugars, also known as complex carbohydrates, which is an excellent fuel for the body)
3.5 ounces (100 grams) of cheese of your choice (you can vary as much as you want, any kind of cheese consumption is allowed)
Avoid: foods containing fast carbohydrates (pastries, cereals with added sugar); lunch will be based on animal protein and carbohydrates, but it should not be too consistent, in order to avoid causing the sensation of fatigue and sleep.
Rice, pasta or potatoes prepared in steam
Any kind of meat of your choice. You can determine the correct quantity of meat to be eaten by adding to your height 3.5 feet (100 centimeters). For example, a person who is 5.5 feet (170 cm) tall, the ideal quantity of meat that should be eaten is 9 ounces (5.5 + 3.5), 270 grams (170 + 100)
Avoid: appetizers of all kinds, desserts (sugar-based products), dairy products and bread; in the evening, the body’s production of digestive enzyme reduces and digestive processes are slower. Dishes should be very light. It would be excellent if you could skip this meal of the day from time to time!
Fish or seafood
A serving of vegetables cooked by steaming or grilled
Light meat, 1.4 ounces (40 grams) less than your height expressed in feet (centimeters). Thus, for a person who is 5.5 feet (170 cm) tall, the recommended amount of meat to be eaten is 4.3 ounces (5.5-.1.4), 130 grams (170 – 40)
Avoid: dairy products, sugar-based products and alcohol.
The chrono diet is based on the principle that our body absorbs food differently, depending on the time of the day at which it is consumed.
