How does the Danish Diet work?

The Danish Diet drastically reduces the daily calorie intake, by cutting off from your daily eating plan a meal. For thirteen days, the dieter is basically supposed to skip one meal per day, usually, the breakfast. So, if your Mom taught you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, forget about it! Or if you’re already not having breakfast for the simple reason that you cannot eat in the morning, than you are already on some kind of Danish Diet.

The hardest part of the Danish Diet is not just skipping breakfast, but skipping a lot of nutritional food entire day. This diet is, actually, a successful one when it comes to weight loss because it is a low calorie diet.

So, after the so called “breakfast”, when you had a coffee with no sugar or with just one sugar cube, you can enjoy your lunch which offers you a bit more nourishment: you can have some low calorie proteins with some vegetables. Dinner also comes with some protein, and many of the meals include beef. Others may include similarly protein-rich foods, such as chicken or lamb. Dinners do include vegetables, but usually in very small amounts.

If you will be curious enough to count the daily calories, you will discover the lucky average number 600. Since this amount of calories is so small, many people might find the Danish diet, hard to follow.

Here’s how you can spend your daily 600 calories:

Breakfast – One cup of coffee with a cube of sugar.

Lunch – Two hard-boiled eggs, boiled spinach, and a tomato.

Arguments PRO Danish Diet:

  • It can help you lose a high amount of weight.
  • Since you’ll know from the beginning what are you going to eat and how much, you won’t have to count calories.

  • Because of the extremely low caloric intake, the dieters may feel weak, hungry, tired and be receptive to illness.  You may also experience nausea, constipation and gallstones, as well as weight regain.
  • The diet eliminates some food groups, so you may suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
  • The diet plan must be strictly followed. Even a small deviation from the plan is unacceptable, if this happens, dieters should not try the diet again for several months.
  • Since the diet plan is limited to the foods from it, the diet cannot be followed by vegetarians.

  • Depending on your body type and the starting weight, in the second week, your metabolism may get slower, so you will not lose as many pounds as the diet promises.
