FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
(answers Dr. Milos Ryc, the lead doctor of the NEWDIET®program)
What is the difference between a low-calorie diet and the protein diet NEWDIET® ?
A well-prescribed and followed ketogenic protein diet NEWDIET® will lead the organism to enter a state of „ketosis“ thanks to a high intake of proteins and a low intake of sugar. The essence of the diet is to overflow the organism with „ketones“, entirely natural and energetically rich compounds. Ketones aren’t „artificial“ compounds that we would supply the body with. They are created by the organism of each person, for example due to fasting, and their presence results in „switching“ the metabolism onto an energy-saving mode. In the context of the NEWDIET® weight-loss program, we want them to appear quickly without the organism feeling hunger while also preventing the body from draining its muscles as a primary source of energy since muscle tissue is easier to access for the body than fat tissue. Ketones appear during the protein diet by digesting NEWDIET® protein meals (step 1), then by the breakdown of the fat tissue and its transformation into energy in amounts big enough to support the normal functioning of a human organism (step 2). The induced state of ketosis is disturbed by carbohydrates and fats so even a small deviation from the described rules of the protein diet puts an end to ketosis. The diet then becomes a „regular“ low-calorie diet and with it ends the protection provided to the muscle tissue.
Is it possible to prove that I am in ketosis?
Of course. One of the indicators is the reaction of urine with an indicator strip, which shows with its color shade the concentration of ketones. Another, albeit rough, indicator is the presence of bad breath which smells like acetone. We correct this with the use of chewing-gum and mint candies without sugar or by mouth spray.
Does one feel hungry during the NEWDIET® protein diet?
Ketones effectively supress feelings of hunger. High-quality proteins provide the body with a feeling of being full on their own. The first two or three days may be complicated, since it’s the necessary amount of time for the body to enter ketosis. We advise clients to start with the diet right before the week-end instead of Monday or two days before New Year’s Eve.
Wie ist die Zusammensetzung (Inhaltsstoffe) der NEWDIET-Mahlzeiten?
Is the NEWDIET® protein diet caroboyhdrate-free?
Most definitely not. There are enough carbohydrates (around 50g per day) in the instant protein meals and vegetables that won’t disturb ketosis but also keep the organism running smoothly without experiencing problems related to the central nervous system (dizziness, weakness etc.). By its composition, the diet is much closer to a fat-free diet.
Warum ist die zusätzliche Proteinzufuhr bei einer ketogenen Diät wichtig?
Spielt es eine Rolle wenn man während der Phase 1 eher die süssen Mahlzeiten von NEWDIET bevorzugt?
What happens once I finish the NEWDIET® protein diet?
While the protein diet is in itself only a necessary means to help you lose weight, it isn’t your goal. Once you finish step 1 (of the protein diet), it’s necessary to proceed to step 2, which completes and consolidates your weight-loss. Step 2 is followed by step 3 (stabilization) whose purpose is to correct any wrong eating habits you have so that you can feel happiness from food again without it being tarnished by an increase of weight. This is the whole idea of the NEWDIET® protein diet. Our greatest sense of accomplishment comes from those clients who not only lose weight, but also never gain it back.
Wo kann ich NEWDIET-Mahlzeiten kaufen?
Why do I have to use minerals, vitamins and the so-called „omega“ acids during the NEWDIET® weight-loss program?
As has been mentioned, the organism loses minerals during the diet and can experience a lack of vitamins and omega acids. We correct the need for increased amounts of sodium by adding more salt to the so-called salty flavours and vegetables. A good source of essential* unsaturated fatty acids (the so-called omega 3) are food supplements made from fish. Various high-quality cold-pressed oils (olive, evening primrose or rapeseed oil) added to your salad can be a good source of omega 6 acids. Magnesium and potassium are added to the diet in the form of adequate food supplements. Adding these minerals, vitamins and „omega“ acids is very important for the smooth going of the diet.
