Yogurt Diet - In brief 

The Yogurt Diet there was suddenly no one knows exactly where it comes from. The Yogurt Diet has something of the Fat Free Diet, Diet and Hospital Three Day Diet, but focuses more on yogurt. The Yogurt Diet is based on the following assumption: 3 cups yogurt (200 milliliters ps) as part of a low-calorie diet leads to 60 percent more fat loss than the same diet without yogurt. This statement is based on an examination of Mr. Zemel of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA. He published his research into yogurt in the scientific journal "International Journal of Obesity. Research among 34 overweight subjects showed that the calcium in yogurt stimulates enzymes that are jointly responsible for burning fat.

Yogurt Diet - Nutrition Schedule and Guidelines 

The Dutch magazine Libelle ever published one of the many variants of the Yogurt Diet. This diet should be followed for more than 4 weeks. It looked like this:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday:

Ketosis diet to lose fat fast

Ketosis diet to lose fat fast
ketosis diet

The ketose- or ketogenic diet is an effective method to lose fat fast. The state of ketosis is achieved at the moment when the body no carbohydrates has longer to burn fat and will appeal to as a primary energy source. By all carbohydrates like bread, candy, soft drinks and pasta from your diet schedule to delete you force the brains to ketones, or fats , burn for energy.

Your diet consists solely of protein , vegetables and healthy fats. After a few days the body is in a state of ketosis.

Ketosis effects
In the first few days without carbs body craves for sugar which can ensure that you have less energy and are what cranky. After a few days, all carbohydrates eliminated from the body, this ensures that you get into ketosis. The lack of carbohydrates the body uses fat as fuel so you'll quickly lose weight . After the first few days, the lack of energy is gone and you will find that your energy levels increase in considerable extent. By adequate protein and healthy fats to eat you prevent muscles are torn down, the weight you lose is a combination of moisture and pure fat.

What should you eat to get into Ketosis?
When you follow the guidelines of the ketosis diet lose fat guaranteed. The proteins are important for maintaining or even build up of muscle mass . In addition to proteins and fats you eat vegetables. In vegetable or sit slow carbs, but this does not get you off of ketosis. Any other kind of food you should avoid if you carbohydrates / sugars eat the body gets from state of ketosis which fat is no longer your fuel.

An example feeding schedule for the ketogenic diet:

Meal 1:

2 or 3 whole eggs
2x fish oil supplement
1x Multi Vitamin
1/2 liter of water

Meal 2:

Water with Isolate Perfection
Handful of almonds

Meal 3:

75-100 grams of chicken (baked in coconut oil )
Salad with mixed vegetables
Olive oil
1/2 liter of water

Meal 4:

Water with Isolate Perfection
Handful of almonds
Meal 5:

75-100 grams of beef steak or chicken (baked in coconut oil)
Vegetables: broccoli, green beans, asparagus, etc.
1/2 liter of water

Meal 6:

75-100 grams of salmon, beef steak or chicken (baked in coconut oil)
Small salad with assorted vegetables
Olive oil
1/2 liter of water

Edit: Daily drinking enough water is very important. Water expels waste from your system and increases your metabolism. Besides water, you can also coffee and tea. Soft drinks , alcohol and fruit steps are a "NO GO"! These drinks contain carbohydrates and pick your state of ketosis. Fruit contains carbohydrates, fruits you should also avoid.

Explanation supplements
Multivitamin : provides the necessary minerals and vitamins and improved body.
Fish oil : essential omega 3-6 fatty acids that stimulate fat burning.
Fiber Supplement : A bad bowel movement (due to lack of bread), you can add a fiber supplement.
Isolate Perfection : contains almost no carbohydrates and is suitable for ketosis diet.

My advice
The ketosis diet, although effective for losing fat, but less for building muscle mass. People who are heavy strength training do have simply need carbohydrates to train hard. My advice is not to follow the constant ketosis diet, but to follow for certain periods. You can diet for example, a few months before the summer or after periods of time where you have to let you go (leave, holidays) follow to quickly get rid of excess fat. The diet works for everyone, but in combination with strength training, you will get results even faster with the ketosis diet.

A variation on the ketosis diet Carb Back Loading . Carb Back Loading is a diet for people who do strength training and what I myself have long follow. This diet also consists of periods (days of rest and exercise) where you do not eat carbs. The big difference with the ketosis diet is that you just do eat large amounts of carbohydrates in the first few hours after a strength training. The carbohydrates you eat than be stored as fat, but transported towards the muscle cells and serve as a source of energy for the next workout.

Sacred heart diet

Sacred heart diet

Sacred heart diet
Sacred heart diet got its name when the diet was formulated by Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital for their overweight patients. This diet is a 7 day diet and is known to help you lose a few pounds within a week. Through his creepy look to cabbage soup diet, 7 days sacred heart diet, is also known as cabbage soup diet. Although some believe to be just this diet is not true, there are a few who have tried this diet in order to confirm the results. However, sacred heart diet and it works, is a matter of debate for a long time now. So, before any of us can judge his, let's see what sacred heart diet.

7 days Sacred Heart Diet

Day 1

You can follow any fruit of your choice, except bananas. Fruits with high water content, such as melons are recommended. On the first day, you can vegetables and soup.

Day 2

Cut all the fruit from your diet on day 2. Have only vegetables. Cooked, canned, cooked, and raw vegetables in any way, must be consumed on the second day. You can of soup, but to refrain from eating, dry beans, peas or corn. Your dinner should consist of baked potato and butter.

Day 3

On the third day, many fruits, vegetables and soup until your stomach is full. Do not have a baked potato on the third day. All your meals will consist of fruits, vegetables and soup.

Day 4

Bananas and skimmed milk has the flavor of the day. Eat about 3 bananas today and have as much milk as you want. You can of soup for dinner.

Day 5

On the fifth day of the Sacred Heart diet, you can beef and tomatoes. You can save up to 10-20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes. If you do not want beef, you can have 6 tomatoes. Eat soup at least once a day.

Day 6

Eat as much beef and vegetables as much, until your stomach is full. You can have 2-3 steaks and as many green leafy vegetables as you like. However, you can no fruit or baked potato today. Eat soup for dinner. After soup at least once in a day is mandatory.

Day 7

On the last day of the Sacred Heart diet, you can unsweetened fruit juice and vegetables and brown rice, to your heart's content. You can use the vegetables with rice, if you like. Once, again with soup is mandatory.

Sacred Heart Diet Recipe


• 1 or 2 cans stewed tomatoes
• 1 large tin of beef broth (no fat)
• 3 plus large green onions
• 1 pkg. Lipton soup mix (chicken noodle)
• 2 cans green beans
• 1 bunch celery
• 2 pounds. Carrots
• 2 green peppers


• Cut all the vegetables into small cubes or blocks.
• Put them in boiling water.
• Add the broth and soup mix and simmer until thick, like soup.
• Season with salt and pepper.
You can eat soup at any time of the day.

These are the sacred heart diet ingredients that are known to help heart patients. This diet has been heavily criticized. Since this diet is full of soup based diet is untenable. If at all you manage to follow this diet, you can lose about 15-17 pounds in the first week. However, since it is only due to the intake of water, it will regain the weight quickly. Before you start following the sacred heart diet, recipe contact a dietitian. In my opinion, if you want your body to be, decide what you eat healthy, to have a balanced diet, exercise and keep your mind healthy. That's all it takes.

Elimination Diet: introducing foods

Elimination Diet: introducing foods
elimination diet

Meanwhile I follow more than a month the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol . In short this is a strict elimination diet that helps to heal the body. An elimination diet is a diet where you suspect foods do not eat where you could have ever an intolerance or allergy. After a while you introduce them again to find out whether you can or not against.

It's so far! 
Last week I was on a nice platter. Actually all the complaints I mentioned in this article I'm tired , are significantly reduced. No cramps in my stomach, not that overall lesser sense, my belly itched barely, actually no longer suffer from my bladder, but still a little dazed by candida infections ... Absolutely no panacea this diet, but it has made me enormously ahead helped. Since a week or so I noticed more no change, so it's time to start reintroducing certain foods.

The order in which I'm going to introduce the foods I follow the list of The Paleo Mom . They say it is the expert in the field of Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. The first thing I introduced this weekend again was pork. This is allowed in this protocol in itself, but I wish it like to test. Next is ranked:

  • spice seeds, such as fennel, cumin, coriander, etc.
  • yolks (do not know if I'm going to test this release because I find it a shame to throw away the protein)
  • seeds and seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds)
  • nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, cashews)
  • Alcohol, in small quantities (I did not go because it reintroduce the recovery of brain slows)
  • eggplant
  • paprika
  • paprika
  • coffee ('I do not so I'm not going to introduce)
  • chocolate
  • eggs
  • chili pepper / red pepper
  • potatoes (although this is not recommended by many sources much to eat, as this article Rineke Dijkinga )
  • tomatoes

Then paleo 
If all this is hopefully successfully reintroduced, I eat the potatoes after paleo. From there I can experiment with other foods how my body reacts to it, such as wheat, gluten, dairy raw. I realize that just totally quinoa is not mentioned because it is a questionable product in paleo. Maybe I'll go to reintroduce previously, because I'm not the problem.

How reintroduction? 
To test whether I comment on a product, I eat it 2x a day, two days. Then I do not eat it at least one day. So to test pork I burgers made of half-and-half chopped. And here Friday 2 and Saturday eaten 2. And so at two meals, not 2 in 1 time. Then on Sunday pork. I think I have had no response on here, except that I was very tired Saturday. I do not dare to say with certainty that this was the pork. I could do this more often after eating pork than I can with certainty say that it is so.

What symptoms do you get at food intolerance? 
It is very different for each person what the symptoms can be if you have a food reïntroduceert where you have a food intolerance. The first clue is when symptoms return of the elimination diet. Consider also:

  • rumbling stomach, flatulence, cramps, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, stomach burning, constipation
  • fatigue or less energy
  • strong desire for certain foods (sugar, fat, etc.)
  • sleeping, can not get to sleep, wake
  • headache or dizziness
  • skin problems: eczema, urticaria / hives, acne
  • gripes: myalgia, arthralgia
  • altered mental status: depression, anxiety, panic, stressed

You doubt? 
Not sure whether you respond or can not control a product or it was a coincidence? Do not eat it again for a while and reïntroduceer again.

Sugar free and low sugar diet: more energy, more health, more happiness

Sugar free and low sugar diet: more energy, more health, more happiness
low sugar diet
It's sweet, white or brown, coarse or fine, and there are countless applications and variations. Sugar. Perhaps one of the biggest culprits in our food. It is so nice, so tempting that we eat almost anything that buy sugar in it. Indeed, it is in almost everything! Scientists, researchers and physicians have frequently demonstrated a strong correlation between increasing amounts of sugar in our food and the increase in the number of overweight people.

In our FREE Ebook you can read that at this moment, 1 in 3 adults in the world are overweight. Since 1980, the number of overweight people has increased only. Between 1980 and 2008 it tripled in emerging developing countries! The authors of the study "Future Diets" (released in januarie this year in Executive Summary) even dare to say that there is a clear link between rising prosperity and increasing number of overweight people.

There are even a term for it: Prosperity Diseases.
If you ask me to do little prosperity with cheap food products where all sorts of rubbish in it.

Just yesterday I read a message that the Subway franchise will get a chemical after all these years of living. When I think back to my subway sandwich last week I start now gagging.

And just think of the delicious soft drinks. Nice refreshed and sweet. Also looked at how much sugar is in a 500ml bottle of soda? Do you have that compared to the weight of a lump of sugar?

Is really surprising as children seem hyperactive when they are stuffed every day with sugar?

Add the fact that there is probably another sit with other sweeteners. That just as (un) healthy or even unhealthier than sugar. Maybe you scare them.

Sugar as a source of energy
Sugar gives energy. And we need energy to function. Previously, long ago, was when our ancestors survived by hunting and gathering fruit the primary source for our sugar needs. And who were then badly. You could use a few good pieces of fruit as you just hard for your life I ran to escape a hungry tiger saber tooth!

But now we live in a society where more and longer still. Occasionally we do move a bit. But to justify that large quantities of sugar? No, unfortunately not.

What happens to excess energy? It must be clear whether or stored. In our body is unused (energy) sugar stored as fat. As we followed slowly expanding until we go to the different types of fruit itself to take.

Sugar in its various forms is in almost everything for. Nowadays, almost all of our food is processed in one way or another. And one of the things they work? The amount of sugar and other sweeteners.

Could that possibly be related to the fact that more and more people suffer from Western diseases such as diabetes? That has a connection with the correlation between prosperity of a country and the number of overweight people? If you read the studies, it appears that indeed there to be a connection. Nowadays they stop almost anywhere sugar and have never been there so many fat people in the world.

Interesting. Naturally there are also other factors that influence this. But believe me, it's much harder to get fat if you eat little to no sugar!

We might not have a direct cause-effect relationship attribute to intuitive but you also feel that the benefits of sugar do not outweigh the disadvantages. Therefore, you're probably reading this article. But it's so nice we love sweet. Who would want to imagine a life without sugar?

Let's elaborate on what sugar is and how it is so easy in your body.


What is sugar exactly?
The term sugar is actually a collective name for a group of carbohydrates. These carbohydrates may come from both natural and unnatural sources.

Sugar free and low sugar diet
sugar freeBelow are some common names of sugar:

fructose (fruit sugar =)
sucrose (cane or beet sugar)
lactose (= milk sugar) is in all dairy
maltose (malt sugar =)
There are three types of sugar:

Glucose: this is the main source of energy for the body. It occurs naturally in fruits and honey, among others.

Fructose: This type of sugar is primarily found in honey, fruits and other sweet natural resources. For example, molasses, maple syrup, honey, agave nectar and sugar cane. But too much fructose can lead to high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

Galactose: this type of sugar is found mainly in dairy products. In addition, it is not in nature but it is a building block of other major sugars.

Maybe you have ever the term 'refined sugars' heard.

Refined sugar is sugar which all nutrients are taken away. No vitamins, no minerals, no fiber. They are "empty" carbohydrates. Deliciously sweet but maybe worthless for your body. In addition, there are many other sweetening agents that are used as an alternative to sugar. These can be divided into two groups.

On the one hand you have the intense sweeteners and on the other side are the sweeteners.

Intense sweeteners, flavors are 50 to 500 times sweeter than sugar, but they do not provide energy.
Sweeteners are less sweet or just as sweet as sugar and does provide energy, although less than sugar.
Below are some common sweeteners that you encounter in ingredients lists of products.

Intense sweeteners - E number Extensive sweeteners E number

acesulfame-K (E950) Erythritol (E968)

aspartame (E951) Isomalt (E953)

neohesperidine (E959) Xylitol (E967)

Mixture of salt, aspartame and acesulfame (E962)

What does sugar in your body? The effects of too much sugar
Too much sugar in your body is not healthy. You have a greater risk of high blood pressure and diabetes type 2. And when all that sugar is converted into fat you also have an increased risk of other cardiovascular diseases. As most know, sugar is not good for your teeth.

In addition, you can just tired of sugar. After the 'sugar rush' as ​​they say in English, comes the inevitable crash. Sugar provides energy for a short period and it is quickly burned out. At the end it seems like you have even less energy when you started. They are mostly empty calories that do not bode well for your body. The effects of sugar are, in many cases, subtle and may become apparent only after years.

As we can notice currently have more people than ever suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and the diseases that go with. Is there sugar directly responsible for? No, that's too simple. But you can assume that it plays a major role!

How the caveman diet work?

How the caveman diet work?
caveman diet
The Basics
Now more than ever, Americans are looking at every possible way to fight the Battle of the Bulge. Lots of "yo-yo" diets have received attention over the years in the media, causing many people to these diets to follow some success, only to return the weight. Other diets promote lifelong retention, advising maintenance once a desired weight is reached.

Eat Like a Caveman
If such a diet is the Paleo Diet, AKA "Caveman" Diet, which is permanent weight loss and healthy living of opinion attributed to eat the first human ancestors. Since cavemen were essentially scavengers that eat berries, nuts, seeds, plants, fruit and meat, these foods are the basis of the diet plan. Portions are small but frequent throughout the day. Proponents believe that once man discovers fire and found he could cook rather toxic food, grains and starch were geu00EFntroduceerd that dense with calories. These foods are portable and easily grown, so that they formed the basis of the human diet.

How it works
By consuming eliminating high-calorie foods, but still enough daily calories, the Caveman diet works through portion control and calorie restriction. Like many low carbohydrate diets of similar ilk, carb intake is contained to an absolute minimum, as a majority of daily calories from fats and proteins that nine and four calories per gram, respectively. No grains, starches, dairy, beans or refined sugars are not allowed. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, berries, legumes and animal proteins are the main course. The first phase will graze on nuts and berries throughout the day, every day, for two to four weeks. Every night, no food can be eaten. The theory is that this will lead to slow detoxification of the body of old habits and poor nutrition, fat loss and what is to be expected. The eight-week phase two is directed to wrangle glucose levels in the blood and keep carb cravings to a minimum. Daily fast is key, as later in the evening of the above foods can be eaten in any quantity. Proponents report of the senses become sharper, making the dieter poet in harmony with their ancient ancestors 'hunter-gatherer' ways of living and burning fat. The third phase is essentially the lifetime maintenance phase, such as healthy food choices are encouraged in any amount, as well as plenty of water. Caveman diet advocates preach a return to how people were meant to eat the body will return to a natural way of burning fat.

Macrobiotics Diet And Nutrition

Macrobiotics Diet And Nutrition
Macrobiotics Diet

macrobiotiek-dieet In the list of 'interesting diets on which we want to know the "Macrobiotics should not be missed. In this article you can read more about this special nutrition and attitudes that are hidden behind it. You read it to me?

What is Macrobiotics?
Macrobiotics is actually called a diet. It is a nutrition and health education. It's a way of life. That sounds very different than a diet. It was the Japanese George Ohsawa who discovered and developed this doctrine. Macrobiotics is a combination of 5,000 years of experience and knowledge of Japanese Zen Buddhism and Western science. In this nutrition is central that yin and yang must be in balance.

Macrobiotics is based on the ideas of Zen Buddhism. The word "macrobiotics," which is derived from the Greek, can be fairly easily translated. 'Makros' means big, "bios," meaning life. Loosely translated, we can

making it "the art of living comprehensive."
The macrobiotic diet is quite strict and austere diet. It contains simplicity, balance and self-discipline central. Sounds pretty Japanese! Today many people are looking for peace and balance, so perhaps this diet is sometimes hype.

Now you know a little more about where nutrition comes from and what it means. But you do not know what someone eats macrobiotic living Zoal. We are going to tell you!

Macrobiotic food
The standard diet of a person who eats macrobiotic, is as follows:

50-60% cereals and cereal
20-25% vegetables
12% legumes and seaweed
6% soup
7% other products
You might notice that the diet mainly contains many grains and vegetables. It is important to note here is that, according to the teachings of the macrobiotiek the vegetables and fruits may not be chemically treated. That is: no fertilizer may be used, no other animal fertilizers and the plant should not be grown in greenhouses. Chemicals and dyes are unacceptable.

In short, do you come from organic and preferably regionally grown fruits and vegetables. You can assume that these are products where all the vitamins and fibers are still preserved in. There's no mess to pass. Thanks so so healthy!

It is striking that spices are avoided. Food should be enjoyed as pure as possible. Also, it is recommended to put on every morsel to chew about 50 times. This helps digestion.

In the heart of the matter the Macrobiotic diet is much like a vegan diet. But perhaps we could say that this is just one step further. After all, a vegan does not necessarily organic vegetables to eat, can indulge in tropical fruit and he can eat a dish with lots of spices. Alternatively eat someone Macrobiotic eating quite a few times a week and you can fish from a vegan not say that.

Cooking techniques that are commonly used in macrobiotic cooking are:

pressure cooking
briefly fried (tempura)
There are no spices used in principle, but to bring the food to taste is for miso and unrefined sea salt made an exception. Macrobiotic food does absolutely not to be bland in taste and with the many cooking techniques out there, it is possible to conjure up creative meals on the table.

Daily food
You're likely to become curious about what someone eats macrobiotic living do on a day. We have it below for you to put a row:

Cereals: the basis of every meal is that it consists of 50-60% of whole grains. You can think of brown rice and whole grain varieties of wheat, barley, millet, rye, corn, buckwheat and other whole grains. Oatmeal, noodles, pasta, bread and other flour products are not daily, but eaten occasionally.
Legumes: 10% of the daily diet. Think of lentils, chickpeas, tofu, tempeh, and chickpeas.
Vegetables: 25-30% of the daily diet. Organic and unprocessed. Preferably also grown locally.
Soup: there are 1 or 2 cups of soup eaten daily. The base of this soup is miso, shoyu or tamari (Japanese soy sauces) seaweed and vegetables.
Animal products: are not eaten in principle. However, several times a week, there is a small amount of fish or seafood on the menu. One should eat this together with horseradish, wasabi or ginger. These products detoxify the body of the effect that fish has on our bodies.
Seeds and nuts: modestly these eaten. Not every day.
Fruits: microbrews should be eaten. So no tropical fruits such as mangoes and pineapples. Fruit is eaten several times a week; not every day.
Desserts and sweets are sometimes permitted, provided that they are sweetened with natural resources such as rice syrup and barley malt.

Healthy or unhealthy?
As with any diet, or any nutrition, also comes to Macrobiotics a lot of commentary. For example, the food would generally be too salty. Macrobiotic food can indeed be quite salty. Frequent use is made of miso, tamari or Shoya and sea salt. On the other hand, someone who does not eat fast Macrobiotic something ready-klaars food from a supermarket. Because of this he gets on the field again within less salt than anyone else.

Also, there is sometimes criticized as: why so little fruit? Why no animal products? Why so sober eat? It is true that there is less fruit eaten. On the other hand there was again a lot of vegetables (and thus fiber and vitamins) eaten. Animal products bring fat and cholesterol with a diet. This is avoided in the Macrobiotics. And sober? It's just what you call sober. When you consider how many fruits and cereals are there, then you can still just ahead with your inspiration!

Health Benefits of Macrobiotics
Fortunately, we hear not just criticism or negative comments about the macrobiotic lifestyle. People who have suffered under this dietetics give life to many health benefits.
Because the food contains little saturated fat and fast carbs, the risk of heart disease and obesity to a minimum. Because hardly any animal products to be eaten and sugar, the chance of getting various types of cancer is reduced. In short, macrobiotic food would ever be able to give a huge boost to your health!

Insulin resistance diet - The big culprit!

Insulin resistance diet - The big culprit!

insulin resitance dietObesity increases the likelihood of getting a variety of degenerative diseases such as heart -en vascular disease and diabetes.
That is the reason that many people do all kinds of things to get to a healthy weight and maintain it.

Unfortunately, it appears that it is very difficult to realize this.
98% of people who diet falls back within 2 years and has a weight equal to or greater than the weight at which they started the diet.

The number of overweight people is increasing.
At present, more than 40% of the people to be heavy and therefore have an increased risk.

Diabetes II is well on its way to becoming disease number one.
Diabetes is a harbinger of the Metabolic Syndrome (also called pre-diabetes.)
The Metabolic Syndrome is caused by a combination of lack of exercise and poor diet.

What is Metabolic Syndrome?
metabolic syndrome overview Metabolic syndrome is a combination of a number of disorders namely:
metabolic syndrome
Increased blood glucose
High blood pressure
Increased cholesterol
Elevated triglycerides

The Metabolic Syndrome (pre-diabetes) is a modern epidemic.

25% of the adult has metabolic syndrome
25% of the adult is in the early stages of the metabolic syndrome
33% of children will develop diabetes

What symptoms indicate (the creation of) the metabolic syndrome?

  • Energy Continuous fatigue, daytime sleepiness or drowsiness or drowsiness after meals.
  • Nervous Lack of concentration, poor memory, poor work performance under pressure.
  • Nutrition Needs candy, soft drinks or coffee between meals, disappearance of fatigue after eating, irritability before meals, feeling faint when the meal is delayed, the morning hard to get going, feeling hungry between meals or at night .
  • Other Vibration (shaking) of the hands, blurred vision, dizziness, light-headedness, coordination problems (dropping things, bumping into things), excessive sweating, muscle spasms or cramps, much thirst, excessive urination, weight changes.

Does diet?
In the first instance, the glycogen reserve is consumed. Then the body will burn kitonen.
There is then burned half fat and half muscles. Since the muscles, reduce, there is also, ultimately, less burned.
Most of the calories consumed by the muscles, but the muscles of the calories may not record.

What can or will be done?
It turns out that the following a diet does not work. The reasons for this are:

A diet is a short term solution to a long-term problem
Most diets are unbalanced and unhealthy (eliminating all fat and carbohydrates, while the body fat and carbohydrates needed)
A diet does not solve the root cause ie insulin resistance.
Research has shown that prediabetes (Metabolic Syndrome), diabetes and in the same way should be treated, ie. Due to a change in lifestyle.
NOT by medicines. It is thereby important that the insulin resistance is addressed.

Insulin resistance
Insulin residual variance occurs mainly through diet avoiding big spikes in blood sugar levels.
These peaks allow you quick energy, but shortly after experiencing a dip.
Blood sugar levels plummet so that creates a very low blood sugar.
This is a situation gevaalijke for the body. The body will produce stress hormones and release.
These stress hormones cause oxidative stress.

blood sugar

Oxidative stress is a metabolic state wherein more than a normal physiological amount of reactive oxygen species in the cells is present.
Because of that free radicals are released which cause of many degenerative diseases.

The high peaks in blood sugar caused by fast simple carbohydrates.
The complex slow carbohydrates have no large peaks and therefore no major declines.

The Glycemic Index is a standard for the different foods.

To prevent or reduce insulin resistance is therefore important mainly foods with a low glycemic index to consume.

If you want to lose weight and to reduce insulin resistance, you can delete the best bread, potatoes, white or jasmine rice, pasta and cereal for about 4 weeks from the diet.
These products all have a very high glycemic index.

There are quite find replacement products. Thus, it is better to take fruit fructose (fruit sugar) something containing granulated sugar.
Granulated sugar has a GI of 70, Fructose has a GI of 20

Instead of jasmine rice you can take basmati rice or brown rice.
Jasmine rice has a GI of 115. Basmati rice has a GI of 50

High GI products also ensure that you get more pull in food.
There are even scientists who assume that the binge eating that we gather under emotion eat anything with emotions Hebbe to make, but the result of insulin resistance are.

Look here a list of foods and their glycemic index.

It has been shown that can be done, the Insulin resistance offset by a well program. The risk of relapse is therefore very small.

How such a program look like then?
Proper diet with foods with a low GI
Adequate exercise (30 minutes per day) five days a week
Dietary supplements in a very high dose. The normal dietary supplements provide a basic dose. However, this is not sufficient to provide the proper amount of anti-oxidants.
I hope I've been able to identify well with this article how important it is to prevent or reduce insulin resistance.

Ketogenic Diet

Ketogenic Diet

Already in 1929 the ketogenic diet has been employed as a therapy in the treatment of epilepsy. But after all sorts of drugs came on the market, this diet faded into the background. For some time this therapy again in the spotlight.
ketogenic diet
In general, it is stated that (young) children benefit most from the ketogenic diet. It is in most cases only be applied in children with difficult (drug untreatable) form of epilepsy, and wherein also brain surgery is not possible. The brains of young children are still developing, and diet can have the most impact. No clear results are known about the results of the diet in older children and adults.

The ketogenic diet is rich in fat and contains very few carbohydrates and proteins. This means relatively little bread, potatoes and eat fruit. The energy has to come from fats. The purpose of the diet is the formation of ketones in the body. These ketones formed during the degradation of fats and play a role in the reduction of seizures. Why ketones have this effect is not known.

Classic or MCT
There are two different types of the ketogenic diet: the classical (1921) and the MCT diet. The first is based on long chain fats and the second of medium-chain fats. The diets differences in the type and amount of fat. Epilepsy Centre Kempenhaeghe Heeze, the Sophia Children's Hospital Rotterdam and the Wilhelmina Children (WKZ) use of UMC Utrecht often the MCT diet. Foundation Epilepsy Institutes Netherlands (SEIN) in Heemstede and UMC St. Radboud in Nijmegen use the classic ketogenic diet. Research shows that the effects of both diets are equal:
-one third of the clients are having ninety percent reduction attack or even seizure-free
-has a one-third reduction in seizures of fifty to ninety percent
-and at one-third the diet gives no effect on seizures.

Because the ketogenic diet has significant consequences for a child because of the drastic change in eating habits and it is also not free of potential complications, it is not prescribed as fast. But, if it helps, it can improve the quality of life. The advantage of this is that diet is seen in a child within three months, or has the effect, or not, and that the diet after two to three years, in principle, is terminated.

It is not yet clear exactly how do reduce ketones attacks, despite the fact that the (classical) ketogenic diet for decades is applied. Therefore, urged by neurologists and scientists on comparative research into the effect of the ketogenic diet and treatment with antiepileptic drugs. Furthermore, research is needed into the effects of diet on health.

No carb diet ? this is Lose weight with a low carb diet

Lose weight with a low carb diet
low carb diet
 Lose weight with a low carb diet
In a low carb diet you eat (much) less carbohydrates and more protein and fat often.
This helps in losing weight, because the production of insulin is reduced, making your body store less fat.
Weight loss is based on eating less bread, pasta and potatoes;
and just more meat, eggs, legumes and nuts.
The secret is not to lose weight by cutting calories, but lose by less carbohydrates.

 A low carb diet or a low carbohydrate diet is a diet where you eat fewer carbohydrates than in a normal diet. There are several low carb diets, which to some are very well known. Examples include Atkins Diet, Dukan Diet, South Beach Diet, Stillman diet and Slow carb diet . In some of these there is less than 10% of the calories you take out of carbohydrates, while that is normally between 40% and 70%.

Low carb diet: the theory of weight loss
In a low carb diet it is not so much that you eat fewer calories (although that often is part of the diet), but above all else to eat. Weight loss with a low carb diet is done by the ratio of carbohydrates, fat and modify protein (drastically). You eat less carbohydrates and you eat more fat and protein.

The idea here is that carbohydrates provide for the storage of fat in your body. Carbohydrates you until you take are converted into sugars, so you can use them as fuel. At the same goes your pancreas - as a result of high blood sugar - produce extra insulin. And insulin promotes fat storage in your body. In fact, without insulin, there is no fat storage possible. When you less carbs until you take insulin production is lower and can be therefore less fat storage.

What you may not eat a low carb diet?
The low carb diet is not a specific method to lose weight; it is a designation for a group of diets which are all based on the above principle. It varies by diet you should not eat if you want to lose weight. But there are broadly to interpret.

Sugars are certainly out of the question. That means no sugar in the tea, no sugar in the coffee, no soft drinks, no candy. But many products that are generally seen as healthy should be eaten less frequently, and are sometimes not allowed at all. Think of bread, potatoes, pasta, rice and cereal. These contain a lot of carbohydrate in the form of starch and fibers. This is converted by the body into sugars.

Fruit and vegetables contain sugars, starches and fiber. In most diets may, however, a normal portion and green vegetables are eaten. Sometimes there are limitations and there, and they look to the fruits and vegetables that contain the least carbohydrates. These are, in the case of fruit, for example, broccoli, cauliflower and spinach.

What can you eat on a low carb diet?
The list of products that you should not eat a low carbohydrate diet is often quite long. But there are also products in front of you just need to eat more. These are products that are high in fat and protein; many of them are not eating healthy and losing weight associated. It involves, for example eggs, meat (both beef, pork and chicken), fish and oils.

By decreasing the number of carbs also reduces quickly the amount of calories you take in. That is, with only meat and eggs difficult to compensate. Therefore, there are often to be found nuts and legumes in low carb diets. Some diets are fiber (complex carbohydrates) properly permitted.

In terms of drinking water is the best. Drinking water is anyway very good at losing weight , but still more important to a low carb diet, because you lose moisture faster due to the low amounts of carbohydrates.

Experiences with low carb diets
Opinions on low carb diets are somewhat divided. This applies to the opinions of scientists, as dieticians, as people who have followed a low carb diet. In one case, it seems to work and not in another. Some experts believe that eating less carbs will help you lose weight; others argue that this is possible only when the total amount of calories you take falls to you.

Where virtually all experts would agree that you can not get far without carbohydrates. Your body needs carbohydrates to function and for example, to make your brains work.

Often turns out that it is very important that you choose a way to lose weight that suits you, and where you feel comfortable with. Losing weight is a precondition for motivation . And that could very well be the most important factor that determines whether a low carb diet for you is an effective way to lose weight.

Lose weight with grapefruit or grapefruit juice

 Lose weight with grapefruit or grapefruit juice
Can you lose weight with grapefruit?
Grapefruit is often mentioned when it comes to losing weight, but is this really so?
And should you eat grapefruit or grapefruit juice choose?
How does this actually mean?

The grapefruit is a fruit native to Jamaica. It is then developed from a cross between the grapefruit and orange. The fruit can have a somewhat bitter taste, but also has a nice, tart flavor. Since the 30s the grapefruit in Hollywood is popular for weight loss.

Lose weight with Grapefruit
In America, by the Scripps Clinic conducted a study into grapefruit and losing fat. Were used for this study hundred people who weighed an average of 98 pounds. These people were divided into three groups. One group received an adjusted, healthy diet. The second group was presented with the same diet, but with every day half a grapefruit. The latter group had the same diet, but every day drank a glass of fresh grapefruit juice. After four weeks proved the groups receiving additional grapefruit, averaging about a kilo more were lost than those who had not eaten or drank grapefruit.

How can this be?
Grapefruit helps with digestion and packed with beneficial antioxidants and fiber. This has a positive effect for all who want to lose weight. A substance is in the grapefruit that may encourage more fat burning and so it helps to lose more pounds.

How much eat grapefruit?
What should you keep in mind is that grapefruit helps detox the liver. You should not to eat grapefruit long succession this reason. Do you do that, it could have a negative effect on your liver. Would you still eat grapefruit daily than do this no more than about two weeks. You can then possibly a few times a week eat grapefruit. The same is true for grapefruit juice.

Grapefruit and medication
If you use medication, it is possible that the effect of the medication is undone by the grapefruit. Always read the leaflet of your medication or you can eat grapefruit. You doubt? Consult your doctor.Juice
Will you not eat grapefruit, but use the juice, always opt for fresh grapefruit juice. Compress the preferably self. Many juices in stores contain lots of sugar and are therefore not so good for you.

Grapefruit Diet

If you do not eat healthy or not enough exercise, eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice will not help. The best effect you see when you really moves well and eat a lot. Avoid sugars, salt and unhealthy fats and exercise every day for at least half an hour.

The liquid diet

The liquid diet
liquid diet
A liquid diet is often associated with a medical need. People who suffer from digestive problems, or for example, have suffered a broken jaw, are temporary or not sentenced to a liquid diet.
Also called detoxification cures write quite often a liquid diet.
However, the world has the diet liquid diet also picked up and developed several variants which aim to help you lose weight. The main criticism of these diets is that they are not healthy by definition. Still, you can, if you keep a few points in the hole, lose weight in a healthy way using a liquid diet. Here you read what to look at. We also give you a daily menu for a liquid diet.

Liquid diet: lose weight responsibly 

When a liquid diet you walk to get soon the risk too little protein, little fat and too many bad carbohydrates. But there need be no question of all when you take into account the following:

- Drink plenty of protein
A piece of meat or fish puree in a smoothie is not directly tastiest thing you can do to get enough protein. But for example, a salmon soup, you can provide a delicious way to your daily need for animal proteins.
Other good sources of proteins that absolutely should not miss in your liquid diet are soy (soy milk, sojavla), dairy (skim milk, yogurt), eggs (as binder in the soup), nuts and legumes (eg peanut soup, pea soup).

- Distinguish between good and bad carbs
Another risk of a liquid diet is that you ingest too many bad carbohydrates (sugars). Minimize honey, sugar or cane sugar. If you really have a sweet tooth, you can use sweeteners.
You shudder perhaps vegetable juices, but a mix of fruits and vegetables often produces very tasty juices on! Avoid pure fruit juice as possible and replace fruit where it can by vegetables.

- Get plenty of fiber
Fruits contain a lot of fiber, fruit juice but a lot less. Try adding whole wheat flakes to your dairy drinks and hearty soups. Brinta is ideal; it contains not only fiber, but is also a source of protein, vitamins and fiber.

- Clear fats not from your menu
Healthy fats your body needs for many important functions. It is not wise to remove it from your diet. Choose not only for low-fat dairy. Also by using broth and nuts can provide you vetbehoefte. Add some olive oil to the broth. Make the broth not too salty; too much salt is in fact a risk in this diet, but fortunately it is easy to avoid. Use instead of salt, spices and seasonings.

- Do not drink too much.
In addition to the risk of defects, with a liquid diet can also have the opposite to occur. If you drink alone, you sometimes get the feeling that you can do this indefinitely, and yet you lose weight. The opposite is true! When you consider that a diet prescribes an average of 1500 to 2000 calories per day and that a suit chocolate already contains 700 soon, then you know you have to keep watching. Also avoid alcohol; during your liquid diet this is really taboo!

- Chew gum.

Blood Type Diet

Blood Type Diet

blood type diet
Blood Type Diet
Peter d'Adamo "Eat right for your type ': that is the slogan that captured the American doctor Peter D'Adamo natural diet country. His basic thesis? Through your diet to tune in your blood, avoid your health and lose weight.

Every human being is totally unique: it has its own genetic code or DNA. The blood type is such a powerful genetic fingerprint. What blood type you have - O, A, B or AB - Depends on the "chemical recognition stabbing" the red blood pigment. This sign is called the antigen. In addition, each blood group also produces specific antibodies against other blood types, hence blood types should never be mixed.

Antisto ffen ready

The blood type and diet have to do with each other in two ways, Bloedgroepdieet says the American doctor Peter D'Adamo nature in his book "Eat Right for Your Type.
blood type dietThe antibodies for a specific blood type, which are directed against different blood groups, may also respond to different food constituents. Eenvoorbeeld: someone metbloedgroep A antibodies react strongly to milk because the amino sugars of milk so similar to the amino sugar that group B states. This reaction creates excessive mucus in the sinuses, stomach and intestines. For people with blood type A is milk so a bypass product.
Conversely substances in food can cause a reaction with the antigens associated with a certain blood type. For example, the lectins (a type of protein) in wheat grains and react with the antigens of blood group O and disturb the metabolism. Therefore, people with blood type O wheat and cereals delete better from their menu.

Your blood type determines your menu

Do you want to be and stay healthy? Avoid the foods that provoke an immune reaction in your blood and put more products on the menu that stimulate your metabolism, that is the basic thesis of the blood type diet.
To make it a little easier, D'Adamo has a blood group made a list of foods that are 'beneficial' (they work as a kind of drug) products 'shun' are (for your organism they poison) and "neutral 'products.

Lean and healthy?

Peter D'Adamo, therefore, that, just as there is no universal diet is where everyone feels comfortable with - whether it is the Mediterranean diet, vegetarianism, macrobiotics or another application - there is also no slimming diet is suitable for everyone . People with blood type O thickening of wheat, corn and most of the cabbage. but thin red Clees, fish, kale, spinach and broccol. For AB blood types are different mechanisms.
What can you expect ofthe blood type diet? D'Adamo is careful: this is not a miracle diet that does fly off the pounds. Healthy and continue to be, since it is in the first place. Yet even overweight people every interest to follow his nutrition: by tuning your diet on your blood type, after all, improves your metabolism, stabilize your insulin production and get your hormones better balance. The result is, yes, weight loss!

blood type diet food

Is the blood type diet for you?

It is suitable for anyone who believes in the scientific theory behind the diet. Just follow the instructions for your blood type and send to any function of your own needs. Consult your doctor if you are taking medication or are pregnant.

Guidelines for each blood type

- Do not eat pork.
- Eat low fat: fat leads

Pro blood type diet

- Quite varied and easy to apply. You have a lot of space when choosing the ingredients and quantities are not limited.
- Adepts of the blood type diet confirm that they have more energy, look better and feel better about themselves. That is the greatest strength of the diet: that you learn constructively and consciously deal with your health.

Contra blood type diet

- The theory of the blood type diet is nothing more than that: a theory. In no way has been proven that your blood type and your diet are linked. Scientists have also made more than once firewood from the ideas of Peter D'Adamo, who only has a natural doctor training to stand on his record and is not a scholar.
- Only those who have blood type AB, according to this diet wheat well tolerated. That can cause problems for our daily kitchen, which relies heavily on wheat and other grain products. So it is not very clear from what sources of carbohydrates owners of blood type O should get their energy.
- The ideas of grabbing the blood type diet back to the diets of our far ancestors. But the people in prehistoric times had a life expectancy of just 30 years, what a comparison with our way of life very difficult. Meanwhile, we also know that the first people do occasionally eat meat if the hunt had been successful, but they fell back to the daily diet in which the women could gather in edible berries, seeds and carrots. The story of the prehistoric man / hunter who mainly ate meat, is somewhat outdated.

According to Peter D'Adamo, the different blood groups created by the migration of man on the earth.

On his journey from Africa over the world in search of new territories, the man had to adapt constantly. Another climate, new foods, they all had the same number of challenges for the biological system of the prehistoric man. But also because of changing habits, from hunter to farmer for example, the human body had to adapt.
As group O of the hunter-gatherer would be the oldest blood type and respond well Control eating meat. The blood is then spread from Africa to Europe and Asia. The CroMagnonmens who lived between 70,000 and 40,000 before our era, had an O blood type. Blood type A farmer plants eater, would be more recent and have spread from the agrarian Middle East to North Africa and Europe.
Blood type B Nomad spread from Asia to the Himalayas and to Central Europe. Blood Types A and B are better served with vegetarian diet.
Blood type AB blood type is the most recent: the people with this blood type are also opposed to a lot of modern foods file.

"The blood type diet is the ideal method for losing weight: no yo-yo effect, go count calories, but a healthy and responsible way to get to your natural weight and stay" - Dr. Carl Hoffman
