Guaranteed Weight Loss with the Dissociated Diet
One of the most popular diets, the dissociated regime, is based on the consumption of a single food group during a certain period of time. Eating dissociated is not really a diet but a way of constructing your meals. The main idea behind dissociated diet is that not the food itself makes you fat, but the combination between foods.
This type of diet has several forms or options:
- Option I: Diet dissociated on every meal- each meal consists of foods from different groups; you can follow this version up to the desired result, but not more than two months.
- Option II: Diet dissociated on every day of the week- each day you eat foods only from one group (eg: a day of fruits, one of carbs, one of proteins etc);
- Option III: Dissociated diet for longer periods of time – a cycle of a specific number of days is repeated over a certain period of time (e.g.: 90 days or 6 months); during the 90 days dissociated diet, you can waste up to 15 kg per day.
If you decide to follow this diet, for 7 days, here’s what you can eat:
Day 1: meat– You should eat only poultry (chicken, turkey), ready to steam or grill;
Day 2: vegetables – You can eat raw or cooked vegetables: chard, lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, cabbage, leek, celery, artichoke, carrot, tomato, cucumber, zucchini, squash, peppers, asparagus, onion, garlic, or a mix of vegetables with no oil or spices;
Day 3: dairy – Any kind of dairy products is healthy and beneficial for your health and your figure;
Day 4: fruits – You can eat any kind, but be careful with citrus, because they can lead to hyperacidity.
Day 5: fish – Pike, trout or salmon, cooked on the grill or steam, are excellent option.
Day 6: cereals – Pasta, rice, corn, wheat and any derivatives thereof are rich in fiber and nutrients and they will improve intestinal transit.
Day 7: eggs.
