Have you ever noticed that women from Asia have almost no cellulite? Also you can hardly ever see a Chinese with excess weight. This is due to a healthy and varied diet. The best thing about this diet is that all the harmful saturated fats, such as the sugar, are completely eliminated from this diet. Namely these fats can be pretty harmful for your body, because they are the main cause of the accumulation of cellulite, as well as pounds.
Many experts believe that Asians are slim thanks to the philosophy of the food they consume. In addition they also sort their food into smaller plates or bowls, which are never filled up to the top. Doctor Colin Campbell wrote a paper called The China Study. In this paper Dr. Colin turned this Asian diet into a plan for weight loss. From this point on the world went crazy for this diet.
The main ingredients on the menu of Asian women is the rice. Also in their nutrition there is an abundance of fruits and vegetables. At this point you should know that the rice can occasionally be replaced by some other foods, such as the whole wheat noodles, wheat bread or corn.
According to this diet every day you should eat carrots, lettuce, spinach, chard, kale, onion and garlic, either fresh or cooked and seasoned with vinegar and oil. Also, every day you can eat nuts, fish, soy, fresh cheese and yogurt.
At this point you should know that once a week you are allowed to eat the meat. Namely you can consume chicken, eggs and sweets. However, instead of candy is better to eat fruit or cottage cheese with honey and nuts, or, for example, dark chocolate with 75 percent of cocoa.
Only once a month you can afford to eat red meat. It is recommended that you rarely eat veal, beef and pork in particular. On the other hand the list of foods that you can consume is quite long. Namely there are plenty of foods you can consume and the most important thing in this diet is that you eat in quantities just enough to satisfy your appetite.
You should also know that the meals on the menu are not precisely defined, which can lead to confusion for those who are not familiar with Asian cuisine and the foods they usually consume.
The menu can change. However you need to be careful about the calorific value of your meals. Here in this article we will show you a diet plan for only one day. According to this plan you can make a diet plan for the other days.
