S.D.M. Protein Diet 

S.D.M. PROTEIN DIET IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE 

The S.D.M. Diet

THE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOU

Overweight and obesity constitute a major risk factor for metabolic diseases such as heart diseases, hypertension, stroke and diabetes, as well as causing aesthetic and psychological distress in social life and interpersonal relationships. Losing weight with traditional diets is often difficult : the weight loss process is very slow and usually it is necessary to weigh all the food options which makes it impossible to follow the diet rules especially when you have meals outside the house.

Often, all these difficulties undermine and delay the hoped results, that's why the diet is discontinued and lost pounds are reacquired. In the 1970 s Prof. Blackburn of Harvard University (U.S.A.) studied and developed a revolutionary nutritional approach that allows rapid weight loss. It is a simple and safe diet because it is based on rigorous scientific bases and followed by scrupulous supervision.

*This diet allows the person to achieve the desired weight quickly, easily and with the confidence to maintain the achieved results over time. In 2014 the Italian Association of Dietetics and Clinical Nutrition (ADI) suggested the "ketogenic diet "in those situations which require a rapid weight loss, since it helps to contain the global health risk and the patient's motivation".

HOW IT WORKS

S.D.M. diet allows the use of protein foods and supplements (minerals and vitamins), which have to be combined with vegetables. The normal diet is replaced with a diet based on S.D.M. protein foods. This means that, during meals, predefined portions of protein foods are taken. Their quantity are established by your doctor or nutritionist, according to the ideal weight of the person (usually 3-5 foods per day). S.D.M. protein foods are formulated using high quality raw materials and high biological value proteins. At the same time the very low content of sugars in the products, allows the triggering of ketosis. This fulfills a complete satiety even though the consumed calories are limited.

The principle is simple: the reduced caloric intake of sugars in the diet forces the body to use its fat as an energy source, and the consumption of high biological quality protein in the diet protects the lean body mass (muscles, bones, skin, organs). This leads to substantial weight loss which is determined by the burning of the fat cells that were accumulated through time. Lean mass is preserved while avoiding the loss of tone that can occur during traditional diets.

THE 5 PRINCIPLES AT THE BASE OF THE S.D.M. PROTEIN DIET :

  •  1. Normal protein intake through high biological proteins
  •  2. Addition of sugars and fats in small quantities
  •  3. Mineral supply and balanced vitamins intake, according to the recommended doses or RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance)
  •  4. Good hydration
  •  5. Supply of vegetables allowed at will
