The protein intake diet is a weight loss diet that guarantees an adequate intake of protein by reducing carbohydrates, saturated fat and sugar. In this way, you avoid losing muscle.
It is important to emphasize that it is not a “Hyper protein” diet where the grams of protein per kg of body weight are exaggerated, making it very safe for your organs and body.
In this treatment, the amount of proteins is respected; therefore it will be a normal protein diet.
Who can carry out a protein intake diet?
All people who are overweight, want to regain the line, people in preparation for surgery or recovery from it.
What are the differences with a classic hypocaloric diet?
In the hypocaloric diet the calories are reduced. And in this reduction of calories enter the different groups of foods that the person can eat: carbohydrates, fats and proteins. In other words, the important value is the calorie count. In this, the metabolic process is the same to which our body is already accustomed and adapted. For this reason, the weight is reduced in a slow way.
In the protein intake diet, on the other hand, the type of food consumed is taken into account, rather than a calorie count. Why? By the metabolic process to which we take the body, we make it obtain energy using stored fat as its main source, it is a process which the body is unaware of and very favorable results are achieved in a short time.
Why not go hungry?
When we restrict carbohydrates, saturated fats and sugars from the diet, the body looks for other sources of energy: our own fat. By consuming our own body fat, the body goes through a series of chemical reactions that we call ketosis. Ketone bodies produce a feeling of satiety and well-being at the brain level.
Protein diet: what proteins do you consume?
We also have processed foods that can be chosen from a wide range of textures and flavors, salty or sweet, meeting the demands of the consumer’s palate. There are even gluten-free or lactose-free products for those with an intolerance to these foods.
