What is the Hollywood Diet?
The Hollywood diet promises to lose a lot of weight within a few weeks in the context of a low-carbohydrate, protein-rich diet with exotic fruits and seafood. Separating food, a lot of protein and a varied menu characterize the Hollywood diet. With the Hollywood Diet you can lose up to eight kilos in two weeks, as the daily calorie intake is very low. The diet has its origins in the 1920s and even then helped Hollywood actresses to achieve rapid weight loss.
Procedure of the diet
The Hollywood Diet is carried out for between two and four weeks, during which time no more than 1000 calories may be taken in with food per day. In the Hollywood Diet, the food consists mainly of protein-containing foods, such as fish and lean meat. Exotic fruits, which are supposed to get the metabolism going, are particularly important in the diet. Between 600 – 800 calories may be taken in daily with the food.
Duration of the diet
The background is the assumption that carbohydrates such as noodles, potatoes, bread, etc. which are eaten together with protein, would not be digested but stored in the form of fat. Therefore, the Hollywood Diet provides for a separate consumption of fat and carbohydrates.
Fruit should always be eaten separately because it is quickly digested and the valuable enzymes it contains can work better. On the menu are vegetables, nuts, eggs, seafood, soy products, salad, fruit and exotic fruits. Lean meat and fish provide many proteins.
Salt, sugar and fat are greatly reduced on the menu, while carbohydrate suppliers such as potatoes, rice or pasta are prohibited. Up to 60% of the daily calorie intake in this diet comes from protein-rich foods. In case of hunger attacks, fruit may be taken as a snack between meals. Water, unsweetened coffee and tea are allowed, but also light drinks and alcohol-free beer. The daily intake should be 600 – 800 calories to ensure the fastest possible success.
