Montignac Diet-This diet developed by French physician Montignac which owes its name, debunks the theory of calorie and opens a door to all those who want to reduce weight without suppressing so attractive and nutritious foods such as chocolate, wine and fermented cheese.
According Montignac, on diets based on reducing calories is an error, because the weight loss that occurs with this type of diet is only temporary, later, the body will adjust and tend to eat fewer calories as a mechanism for defense. At the same time, says Montignac, the weight will recover and even increase slightly from that was before starting the diet, creating striking metabolic imbalances and frustrations.
Montignac classifies foods into proteins, carbohydrates (carbohydrates) and lipids (fats). Carbohydrates in turn divided into sugars and carbohydrates good bad.
The accumulation of fat in the body, directly related to the insulin secreted by the pancreas, makes the glucose from being used by the body, segregated in the case of too, is stored as reserves. When pancreatic function is in perfect condition, just secrete insulin without producing accumulation otherwise be stored as fat.
