Most diets have no lasting effect on the body. You lose 2-3 kilos, but then you gain them back
Now, however, scientists have discovered a new diet with which you do not gain weight after losing weight. Moreover, it is very good for the heart, reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
The discovery was made by Spanish specialists from Rovira i Virgili University.
The study involved more than 600,000 patients between the ages of 55 and 75. They suffered from obesity or metabolic syndrome.
The low-calorie Mediterranean diet has been found to help with weight loss and is good for the heart in the long term.
The research data shows that 33.7% of the patients who switched to it lost about 5% of their initial weight after a year. Compared to non-dieting participants, their glucose uptake was significantly improved.
Also, over time, the positive dynamics of weight loss continues, experts note. The Mediterranean diet consists of eating fresh vegetables and fruits, legumes, seeds, whole grain bread, nuts and pasta.
Scientists are adamant that with this type of diet it is good to limit the consumption of red meat and emphasize fish and seafood,
