The vast majority of weight loss methods involve reducing the total caloric intake of the diet. It is necessary to use this approach so that the body begins to use long-stored fat reserves for energy. However, this dietary postulate also has significant drawbacks: stress on the body caused by constant hunger and significant disturbances in the functioning of certain internal organs. Almost the only exception is the diet developed by specialist Osama Hamdiy. Another name for this weight loss system is a chemical diet.
A little history
The author of this number correction method is Osama Hamdiy, an American doctor. He first created a nutritional system for obese diabetics. The author's diet was based on the reprogramming of metabolic processes, which allowed endocrine patients to say goodbye to extra pounds.
According to the results of clinical trials, when using this method, owners of impressive sizes, whose body weight is between 100 and 150 kg, lost a third of their weight. In addition, due to the introduction of this nutritional system, the blood sugar level decreased and the general well-being improved. The weight loss program for diabetics is called "Why Wait". Over the years, it has been improved through the efforts of Dr. Hamdiy and his colleagues.
This is how the chemical diet appeared, which is active today and, most importantly, successfully used by obese people all over the world.
The essence and working principle of the energy system
Osama Hamdi's weight loss method is truly unique. It can save any person from obesity, even in the advanced stage, that is, II and III degrees of severity. This effect of the chemical diet is explained by focusing on specific combinations of proteins and products, which act as a trigger for the activation of metabolic reactions in the body, necessary for the breakdown of fat deposits, when forming his diet.
The effect of losing weight is also achieved by reducing the caloric content of consumed food, but this principle is still not the main one. In addition, the menu contains a minimum amount of carbohydrates. As a result of all these disturbances in the diet, weight loss usually occurs due to a decrease in fat stores, not muscle mass, as in other nutritional systems.
Chemical diet rules
- Chicken eggs play the role of the main product in the diet menu. They have a unique balanced composition and have a fairly low energy value, so they are ideal for weight loss. In addition, the egg is completely absorbed by the body and gives a feeling of satiety for a long time.
- Other types of protein suitable for consumption on a chemical diet are lean fish and meat (except lamb), cottage cheese, and hard cheese with a low percentage of milk fat.
- Citrus fruits - primarily grapefruit and oranges - are of great importance for weight loss according to Osama Hamdiy's system. It is advisable to consume them together, which helps to speed up energy exchange and metabolism in general.
- The list of foods allowed on a chemical diet includes most fruits and vegetables, whole grain foods, and bran bread; black, green and herbal teas; still mineral water, natural coffee.
- It is forbidden to eat in sufficient quantities - potatoes, sugar and all kinds of sweets, any fats (both vegetable and animal origin); almost all flour products, alcoholic beverages. Grapes, bananas, figs, dates and raisins cannot be eaten from fruits. The absolute majority of fermented milk products and drinks, as well as milk itself, are subject to the strictest taboo.
- You should drink at least 1 liter of clean table water per day. It is recommended to swallow the liquid not during meals, but in the breaks between meals.
- Food should be moderately salted. In general, the less the better. And this should be done immediately before serving the diet meal.
- Food can be steamed, fried, baked and baked. Do not add oil, herbs and spices to the food.
- You should weigh yourself every morning and record your body weight. But this manipulation should be done exactly after a bowel movement.
- You should eat until you feel full. Do not overeat!
- The optimal period for following a chemical diet is seven days, so it is better to start losing weight on Monday.
- You can stick to this weight loss method for a maximum of 1 month.
- If you feel a strong feeling of hunger in the breaks between meals, you are allowed to give yourself small snacks in the form of fresh cucumbers or tomatoes, preferably without salt.
- The last meal should be no later than two hours before bedtime. In this case, the food will have time to be completely digested, and the resulting calories will not be able to turn into fat deposits in the body.
- If for some reason you failed to follow the method - for example, you missed a diet day - you need to start the weight loss course from the very beginning.
