Food supplements and ready-made diets


I talked about diets and food systems, whose history goes back several decades. However, science (and dietology is very important, in my opinion, science) is moving forward, and we are eager to take advantage of its achievements as quickly as possible.
Over the past few decades, the world now and then represent the next "magic" drug that allows you to lose weight without any effort. At the beginning of the book, I shared with you my sad experience of losing weight on popular pills for reducing appetite. The weight remained the same and even increased, and a hormonal failure occurred in the body.
I think similar stories happened to those who took Herbalife products that were popular in Russia at one time. This company is often criticized in scientific studies, talking about the increased toxicity of their low-carb protein meal replacements. In 2009, one of the consumers and distributors of Herbalife products in Israel filed a lawsuit against the company. The woman proved that because of the use of Herbalife bars and pills, she had liver problems that developed into cirrhosis.
But not all methods of weight loss, based on nutritional supplements, harm the body. Especially for this book, I asked my girlfriend Alice in detail about how she lost weight on milkshakes of one European manufacturer, as well as on the “Lose Weight in a Week” system of a popular Russian brand. Here is what she told me:
- Cocktails I discovered a year ago and I lost weight surprisingly quickly. My weight before losing weight was 65 kilograms, a week later it dropped to 59 kilograms.
Milk shake for weight loss is recommended to drink instead of one to three meals a day. For the first two days I replaced all three receptions, and then I drank instead of breakfast and dinner, and for lunch I ate all that usually. The cocktail is quite tasty - I had chocolate, and there is also a taste of cappuccino, coffee, fruit, and even chicken.
It is done with a shaker, which the seller gives complete with a can. It is necessary to pour preheated milk into the shaker, add the powder from the can and whisk with the lid closed.
The cocktail is thick in consistency, it is low in calories (there are 200 calories per serving with milk) and it is well saturated, since it contains a lot of protein.
In general, it was easy for me to hold onto it, and I lost weight well in just a week. But, unfortunately, quickly gained weight again. I think the point is that losing weight was too drastic. But the husband dropped eight kilograms, from 98 to 90, and did not recover more. For two weeks, he replaced only one meal with a serving of a cocktail — dinner.
