400 calorie diet

This is a diet designed for people who want to lose those extra pounds. It is a regimen in which you will be incorporating a small amount of food, it will allow you to lose weight between 4 ½ and 5 ½ kilos in 10 days. You will have to control the calories you incorporate since they cannot exceed 400.

If you are determined to put this diet into practice, you will have to have a healthy state of health, drink as much water as possible daily, flavor your infusions with sweetener and season your meals with only salt and olive oil.

How much do you lose on the 400 calorie diet?

It is true that with such a diet, the calories are much lower than we might think. So if we follow the plan to the letter we can lose around 4 or 5 kilos per week. But yes, it is best to do the 400 calorie diet for only 8 or 10 days.

Later, we can incorporate more quantities but always of the foods that we recommend. In this way, the body soaks up the nutrients, proteins or vitamins it needs, but always controlling the issue of weight.

    400 calories? It is the most ridiculous thing that I hear and it seems to me the most irresponsible that this type of atrocity is published on the internet this diet is garbage and although an average person could lose 5 kilos in a week that I do not doubt it will be left over all body fluid that you recover in a matter of days, besides that you spoil your metabolism turning it into a slow machine and in the long run it will be impossible for you to lose more weight unless you want to see yourself in the bones without any muscle. it is best to go down little by little and ignore this type of wrong diet.

      The truth is that by supplementing with multivitamins to ensure your daily intake of micronutrients, any restrictive diet works in the short term, whatever you eat (even if it is just a 400 calorie fat burger a day). However, the consumption of fruits and vegetables is very beneficial for health since they have what is called phytonutrients. This diet works considering that the body of the subject has an amount of accumulated fat available to cover the caloric deficit. The smartest thing to do would be to ensure a protein intake of around 1g x body weight and supplement with physical activity, in order to maintain lean mass. On the other hand, the rebound effect is nothing more than eating again, exceeding the calories that the body needs, therefore a diet of these characteristics followed by a food reeducation would not lead to a badly called rebound effect.

    It's great! I changed some things and I followed it without going over 400 calories, I lost 5 kilos in the first 10 days and 4 in 10 more days with the same diet! I plan to follow it for 10 more days to complete the month 🙂

      If you want to lose weight visit a nutrition professional.
      These diets are useless and dangerous for your body.
      Food education is essential for the success of your eating plan. Listen to me! is my advice as a future healthcare professional.

    It is horrible that this type of publication is available to people!
    Should be reported!
    No human being can consume this diet! All that is lost will be body water, and it will not take long to recover it. This not only does not work, but it threatens health and does not have scientific endorsement.

    It is a complicated diet because it does not fully satisfy the necessary nutrients that we must consume on a daily basis.

    This diet is only designed for people with a BMI greater than 80, that is, they are approximately 100 to 150 kilos overweight.

    The truth is that I have significant dyslipidemia problems and nothing, not even the medications, has helped me control the levels.
    Only with a diet without gluten or lactose and few fruits, plenty of water anyway.
    I hope this helps me to get it.

    The perfect example that losing weight is not synonymous with being healthy. This is not healthy and it is dangerous, stop lying on the Internet. As a medical student and a person who has been in the world of exercise for a long time, if you want to lose weight, eat a balanced diet, with exceptional saturated fats (don't forget that fats are necessary but healthy ones are unsaturated), healthy carbohydrates and no empty calories, protein (more the more you want to get muscle mass). Make the base of your diet are fruits, vegetables and legumes, blue fish and, although red meat has more proteins, white meat is always healthier. Make water your main drink and make the consumption of super exceptional sugary drinks All this combined with a caloric deficit and exercise (strength work + cardio). Healthy weight loss is always progressive and satisfactory, this diet described here is just a "boom" effect, it will make you lose weight in an unhealthy way in a couple of days and then everything will remain the same. It is not worth risking your health.
