I have already told you about the Whole30 diet , a diet very similar to the Paleo created by Melissa Urban, but more balanced towards the consumption of fruit and vegetables, which has allowed many people to lose 10 kg in a month, as you can see here .
You will tell yourself, yes, but why have so many people chosen this diet?
Because the Whole30 has often been used for “challenges”, that is, one-month challenges in which people used social media to show photos of their results. And because it works even if you don’t have to count calories and weigh anything.
In fact, the limitation of some foods allows you to automatically eat less, without however limiting the quantities of others.
Who is it suitable for?
The Whole30 diet is suitable for those who eat disorderly and are around 15-20 pounds overweight.
This summer version, then, is simple and genuine and will allow you to lose 10 kilos a month as long as you follow the rules, including that of not weighing yourself for the month of diet. It can also be continued afterwards, until the ideal body weight is reached.
Obviously, even if the diet is complete from the point of view of nutrients, it is good to talk to your doctor before embarking on it.
WHOLE 30 SUMMER DIET
TO LOSE 10 KG IN 30 DAYS
You don’t have to weigh yourself for a month.
Choose a physical activity to do.
The following are forbidden from the diet: sugar of any kind, whether natural such as honey or white or cane; nothing to sweeten, no syrups, nothing. No sweeteners either. This is the first big difference with the Paleo diet.
You can NOT consume carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, rice, cereals, normal potatoes and even pseudo cereals.
The only exceptions are plantains and American sweet potatoes. Here too we find a difference with the Paleo diet, which recently admitted rice and potatoes.
DO NOT consume alcohol.
Legumes and peanuts including soy products are banned.
DO NOT consume cheese and dairy products (not even yogurt). You can use ghee instead of butter.
Make a natural diet, do not make desserts and pizzas from permitted foods.
So what can you eat?
Fruits, vegetables, meat of all kinds, but not processed (no sausages or salami, ok bresaola), fish of all types that is not processed, crustaceans and molluscs, eggs, coconut, nuts, oil seeds, cocoa, sweet potatoes . Ok oil, vinegar, salt, butter, ghee, spices and aromatic herbs.
Kefir water, coconut water, sugar-free fresh juices, animal gelatin, fermented coconut yogurt, coconut milk for desserts or cooking, coconut, hazelnut, hemp, almond drink, chufa flour and milk are also ok. of chufa, dried meat, konjac shirataki.
Among the vegan alternatives: quorn vegan or ground or fillet (not prepared), jackfruit , vegan cheese based on cashews or almonds as long as it does not contain soy or additives (it would be better to make it at home), seaweed.
Many paleo products are excluded when packaged.
The principle of the Whole 30 diet is in fact the simplicity of the diet. Preparations, desserts, pastas, muffins or vegan biscuits, pizzas or spreads packaged even if with allowed ingredients
are not valid .
Even if the quantities are free, we do not eat until we burst, we eat the right quantity for us, moderating at the table.
How is the summer version of the Whole 30 different?
In a lighter scheme, where nuts and seeds are consumed but in moderation.
Here is the pattern to follow every day for a month (there are no days off).
