Sandwich diet


The snack diet ensures that snacking and losing weight are compatible. This curious eating plan speaks of losses of 3-4 kilos per month, and even more, eating snacks every day.

In addition to being one of the favorite foods of most, the snacks are quick and easy to carry. For this reason is touted as a great idea for those who have little time to eat or must eat away from home.

What is?

Low fat brick

The main difference that the sandwich diet presents with respect to other weight loss diets is that it encourages the consumption of bread. And is that this plan considers bread an ally, and in general all carbohydrates. On the other hand, fat (especially saturated fat) is singled out as the great enemy for the line. And he says that it is even worse when combined with the former. In short, you can eat carbohydrates, but you have to eliminate fats.

This food plan proposes offer the body in the form of bread a good part of the carbohydrates that it needs every day to perform numerous functions normally. One of them is the power supply. But he emphasizes that so that the sandwich is not fattening, the bread must always be accompanied by greens, vegetables and small amounts of protein without fat. Sandwiches yes, but healthy.

The success rate attributed to it is very high, something in which the psychological factor has, without a doubt, a lot to do. And it is that from the mental point of view, so important to complete the diets and reach the weight goals, the sandwich diet can be less harsh than the rest. Since it allows you to eat snacks, there is not as much feeling of being on a diet as in others. All of this can make it quite a bit more bearable for some people.

Do you serve any type of sandwich?

The snacks of this diet cannot be made in any way, but must meet a series of requirements. The main one is that they do not contain fat, since that is the way this eating plan has to help you lose weight. Therefore, the typical hamburgers of fast food restaurants are discarded, as well as chorizo ​​sandwiches or other high-fat sausages.

Fat-free serrano ham, grilled chicken breast and salmon are among the allowed ingredients for sandwiches. Despite being considered processed meats, ingredients such as turkey or cooked ham are also recommended in this diet. On the other hand, it is advisable to add greens and vegetables to these meats, such as arugula or tomato. The purpose is to increase the nutritional contribution of the sandwich.

Wholemeal bread

There is talk of a third of a loaf (or a 15-centimeter-long loaf) a day. But the amount of bread that each person can eat can vary based on a number of factors, including BMI (body mass index). This diet ensures that it is better if it is whole wheat bread or with seeds, since they help to increase the feeling of satiety, as well as to improve intestinal transit. Peaks and biscuits are not recommended, as well as white bread and sliced ​​bread, unless the latter is integral.. The reason is that they are varieties that hardly provide nutrients to the body.

The daily amount of bread allocated is usually eaten in the form of a snack during lunch or dinner, but it is not mandatory to use it to prepare a sandwich. It can also be eaten in the traditional way, as a side dish. If you eat a sandwich for dinner, at noon you should have eaten proteins and vegetables on a plate, trying to make it as fat-free as possible. And vice versa.

Foods that can and cannot be eaten

  • Vegetables
  • Fruit
  • Fish
  • Lean meats
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Potatoes
  • Boiled eggs
  • Light cheese
  • Coffee, herbal teas and light drinks

Dairy is allowed, but must be skimmed. For example, for breakfast you can have a coffee with skim milk, two toasts and a piece of fruit. And skimmed yogurts are common during lunch and snack, with fruit being the alternative. Chives, pickles, capers, and mushrooms are also allowed. Likewise, at each meal four glasses of water should be reached.

Instead, oils, fried foods, industrial pastries, packaged snacks and in general anything that contains fat are not allowed. The fact that a diet does not allow healthy fats or limits their consumption very much represents a problem for many experts. And it is that these are beneficial for the body (help reduce the risk of heart disease) and, therefore, should be an important part of a healthy and balanced diet.

Remember that before making any major changes to your diet, as is the case, it is essential to consult your doctor first.
