The secret to Zero- Fat Diet is the new science of nutritional genetics, the study of how our genes are turned on and off by the foods we consume.
Simply by making a handful of tweaks to your diet and lifestyle can help in improving your gut health, dampen inflammation, and start your body losing fat, almost instantly. So here is all in details you should know about this diet.
1. Focus on plant protein
In recent studies, people who ate moderately high protein levels were twice as likely to lose pounds and keep it off as those who didn’t. That’s why protein is an important part of every Zero-diet meal, snack, and drink. But plant-based protein is the secret.
Researchers discovered that people who ingested higher amounts proteins from vegetables were far less susceptible to metabolic syndrome (a combination of high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and obesity) than those who consumed animal protein.
2. Add fat to lose fat
Another study has proven that people who consumed foods high in monounsaturated fats for lunch (in this case, an avocado) reported a 40 % lower desire to eat for hours after. Monounsaturated fats from food like olive oil, nuts and avocados can reduce cholesterol, promote weight loss, and even boost memory.
3. Add resistant starch
Once it’s in your body, resistant starch does just what its name suggests, resists digestion. That means it hits both ends of the metabolism spectrum, slowing down your digestive process and controlling blood sugar, while also forcing our body to burn more calories because it absorbs the food.
But resistant starch has another great weight-loss property: it feeds your “good” belly bacteria. When you consume resistant starch, your gut biome gets stronger and healthy bacteria literally get a workout digesting it and becoming more dominant, leading to a healthier gut.
4. Make some power foods for zero stress
You already know how it is hard to manage dinner. It’s hard to always eat healthily and it is even harder when you haven’t got time to prepare yourself a healthy meal. To help yourself, your menu should already be done, and in that way to avoid stress. The key is to identify a handful of healthy foods that will form the base of your recipes. To make sure there is always something healthy to eat, prepare these foods on a night before and keep them in your fridge for quick reheating.
To remove saturated fat (the kind found most often in animal products like meat) and replace it with monounsaturated fat in moderation, is definitely a good thing. It helps lower our LDL “bad” cholesterol and the chance of stroke and heart attack. So it is a good approach for anyone with heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
The aggressive weight loss is really concerning. If you have diabetes, you should attempt this diet only after asking your doctor for an advice. You will need to work closely together to monitor your blood sugar and adjust your medications, so your blood sugar doesn’t fall too low.
