We all like to look good, and to achieve it sometimes the weight appears to increase as an obstacle to achieving the ideal figure. Fortunately there are a wide variety of options that allow to counteract those pounds others, one of them is diets, and this time we want to talk to you about a specific and very effective seemingly “daddy’s diet”.
This dietary option consists of the intake for a long time of potato as the only food to be consumed. Its effectiveness has been questioned, but verifiable results have also been seen in people who have taken on the challenge by achieving a remarkable weight loss.
The success of this diet may be based on the low amount of calories represented by this food as the participant’s only food consumption, in addition this tuber enjoys a high presence of fiber and vitamins that provide important nutrients to the body.
How should the potato be consumed?
The experts’ recommendations regarding their intake mode highlight that fried, roasted only, baked or sancochada should not be consumed, so their consumption would be as healthy as possible for greater effectiveness.
It is also suggested that a non-prolonged consumption and no more than 7 continuous days, can be done intermittently resting every 7 days and continue the diet once the break is over.
Remember that your body needs nutrients and vitamins from various foods and depriving them of them could have consequences you wouldn’t want to face.
As you do the potato diet, use it naturally, not packed or with preservatives, the healthier and lower in salt the better the results you will get.
