The main benefit of the program is that it is customized. It is essential that we develop with you your own menus to suit your tastes in order to get the best results and prevents boredom.

The special diet
The special diet is a weight loss program that allows a quick weight loss while meeting your nutritional needs. Easy to follow, it can enjoy a variety of foods.
When you decrease the number of calories to lose weight, your body automatically draws its fat to get energy. Unfortunately, it also taps into the muscle. During the first month of a total fast without charge, half the weight loss comes from muscle.
The amount of protein a person needs to keep his muscles, his heart and his health is 0.8 grams per kilogram of ideal body weight. To prevent muscle wasting and maintain the elasticity of the skin during the slimming stage, the need is increased to 1.5 g per kilogram. As you can see, if you reduce calories, your protein needs double.
If this protein requirement is not covered, follows muscle loss and heart (which is a muscle) thins.
Many too low protein diets produce a slower metabolism. The result of these diets cause, when refuelling, a recovery of weight even if the person eats properly. Worse, each time she gained weight, she accumulates more fat than muscle. It becomes increasingly difficult to lose weight and easier to win. This is what is commonly called the yo-yo syndrome.
