The Greek diet belongs to the category of Mediterranean diets, which means that losing weight on it is tasty and healthy! The main advantage of this diet, which is somewhat reminiscent of the famous Mediterranean diet – you lose weight smoothly, without stress for the body and the desired weight, with the right approach, remains for a long time. If you want to get rid of excess weight, go to the Greek diet, because, to a greater extent, the proposed recommendations and menus are not a diet, this is a balanced diet that you must adhere to daily.
The main meaning of food in Greek is that you only need foods with a low glycemic index (GI) that do not cause a sharp rise in blood sugar, which does not contribute to the appearance of extra pounds. Your menu should consist, first of all, of simple carbohydrates – 60%, which should be eaten for breakfast, fats – 30% (it is advisable to use fats in the form of nuts, avocados, and vegetable (olive) oil) and 10% protein.
For lunch and dinner, try to eat protein and vegetables. It is recommended to eat light foods, no later than 3 hours before bedtime.
When composing your menu, take into account the list of recommended products and their frequency of use. So, every day you can eat wholemeal pasta, black whole grain bread, oatmeal, brown rice, and other cereals, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, olive oil, low-fat dairy products, dry wine. One to four times a week you can include the following products: different types of fish and seafood, eggs, dark dark chocolate, honey. Once or three times a month you can treat yourself to lean meat, which includes: pork, veal, rabbit, turkey, chicken.
One of the conditions for quickly losing weight is to limit the use of fat, salt, and sugar. The recommended amount of fluid consumed per day is 1.5-2 liters.
