American nutritionists say that were able to develop a diet that will allow people to lose weight without putting any effort to do so — namely, during sleep. The best part is that people adhering to this program will not lose muscle, and that fat, which is very difficult to achieve even using standard diets.
What is the secret of this diet, read below.
Is it possible to lose weight in your sleep? American nutritionists say that Yes! In a unique "night diet" (Diet Overnight), the essence of which is to maximize the fat, and preserving muscle mass.
The author of nutrition — dietitian and head of nutrition and weight management Boston medical center, Caroline Apovian (Caroline Apovian). Specialist worked on the diet for about 20 years and have already successfully applied it in practice.
We all know that with limited resources the first thing the body takes energy from muscles. But then when he gets better, he is gaining weight in the form of fat. That is why strict diets and even starvation does not have the desired effect. To lose weight correctly, you need to lower insulin levels and put the body in fat burning mode.
According to Dr. Apovian, this can be achieved, forgoing solid food for one day a week. Instead of the usual food on this day you need to eat nutritious smoothies made with yogurts, fruits, vegetables and protein powder. Such a mixture can lower insulin levels and to start increased production of the so-called growth hormone that helps to regulate metabolism.
Of course, this does not mean that the remaining six days you can eat burgers and drink Cola (even though way to lose weight, but it is unlikely that the result will please you). The nutritionist advises to follow a diet aimed at burning fat and eat more protein foods: meat, fish, eggs, soy products.
The main difference of this program is food from the popular low-carb diets is that Overnight Diet allows the diet of familiar food products made of wheat flour, fruits, vegetables, dairy products and so on.
Due to the normalization of metabolic processes the weight loss can say that will take place in a dream. Agree, this is a very attractive prospect. But the main advantage of the "night diet", of course, that person will not lose muscle, and that fat. Muscles, on the contrary, receive a constant supply thanks to the useful cocktails once a week and healthy food in other days.
