The mechanism behind the protein diet
An increased high-quality protein intake
NEWDIET® protein meals are based on extracts from cow milk, peas, soya and egg white, which are metabolized in the body to produce entirely natural compounds called ketones (acetoacetate, acetone, and beta-hydroxybutyrate). Ketones are not only energetically rich, but have many other unexpected effects. For instance, they can be an alternative source of energy for the brain, or have the natural ability of inducing a feeling of being satiated (which emerges on the second or third day after starting the hyperprotein diet, which is why clients practically do not feel hungry while losing weight). The hyperprotein diet simultaneously participates in the protection of the muscle tissue which is a closer and easily accessible source of energy than the fat tissue. Ketones also have a natural euphoric effect (many clients report having a very good mood during the course of the diet).
A lowered carbohydrate intake
A decreased intake of carbohydrates leads to an automatic decrease of insulin levels, which has a dual effect in the body: the first effect is hypoglycemic (lowers the amount of glucose in the blood) and antilipolytic (the higher the level of insulin in the blood, the less the organism is willing to give up its fat tissue as a source of energy). Lowering the level of insulin through a reduced intake of carbohydrates in one’s diet leads to the activation of the breakdown of stored fat tissue in the organism while protecting its protein reserves (its own muscle tissue). This means that during the course of this weight-loss process, the loss of muscle tissue is minimal as the body loses primarily its fat tissue.
The protein diet NEWDIET® isn’t a carbohydrate-free diet
NEWDIET® products along with allowed types of vegetables contain enough carbohydrates (around 50g per day) necessary for the normal functioning of the body (especially the central nervous system). This diet is not carbohydrate-free, and leans towards a fat-free diet.
