A month to clean up your body and prepare for the swimsuit test
The summer has arrived and anyone who hasn't managed to reach his ideal weight in the past months, try a race against time. This is in fact the period in which most people go hunting for innovative diets, which promise light weight loss. The solutions to lose weight are the most varied and, through careful research, it is possible to find what they do to their case and especially to their physique.
The Whole 30 diet was designed by Melissa and Dallas Hartwing. The beneficial effects of this diet would be twofold: weight loss and detoxification. Not only lose weight therefore, but at the same time clean up our body, perhaps after a period characterized by unhealthy nutrition. 30 is linked to its duration: 30 days.
The two spouses have carefully removed from the list of allowed foods all those who, according to their judgment, would be harmful to the organism. However the Whole 30 does not offer a specific menu to anyone who wants to follow the dictates. The real restriction is given by the list of allowed foods, which would not weigh down, leaving the referee free with regard to the proportions and frequency of meals.
It is forbidden to let yourself go to gluttony, therefore you tear the rule. In these 30 days you will have to clean up, banning all forms of alcohol, cereals, legumes, dairy products and sugars. Something already seen, but the big difference of Whole 30 concerns fruit and vegetables. Many diets in fact try to limit their consumption, while the Hartwings strongly recommend it, even if in limited portions.
Smoking is also prohibited. However, concessions are not lacking to help anyone who wants to try their hand at this diet: in fact, iodized salt, clarified butter and vinegar are allowed. Here's a typical day, following the Whole 30:
- Almond milk without sugar for breakfast, accompanied by a bit of layered butter, served with scrambled eggs.
- A bit of dried fruit as a mid-morning snack.
- For lunch, grilled vegetables with grilled chicken.
- A fruit in mid-afternoon.
- Potatoes (not fried) for dinner, next to some roasted salmon.
