A diet after the holidays: the menu for 15 days of detox
FROM 2 to 5 pounds. Those are the ones that on average take during the "marathon" food of the feasts of the Christmas season from the Vigil of the Epiphany lead us into temptation which is often hard to resist. And, in fact, a classic of the end of this period and of the new year's resolutions is to put a diet to lose the pounds accumulated. There are many proposals that come from the web with diets, sometimes very drastic ones that promise to make us lose weight fast. But can we trust? How to choose the right diet, the one that will make you lose weight but also to maintain the results without damaging your health? We asked Laura Rossi , specialist in food science and coordinator general of the new Guidelines for a Healthy Diet drawn up by the Create Food and Nutrition that contain an entire chapter dedicated precisely to the theme of the diets.
Not always needed in a diet
In fact, those who started with a weight in the norm of the holidays does not need to go on a diet now. “If you take 2-3 kilos - explains Rossi - just return to a normal diet. And then we must not worry about the weight that you take in the course of the 15 days of christmas, but rather one that accumulates throughout the year, why don't you get fat between Christmas and new year's Eve, but rather between the new year and Christmas, that is, in the space of a whole year”. In fact, even when there is nothing to celebrate, not always life-styles followed are healthy: “Unfortunately, during the daily life - continues Rossi - is likely to exceed the evening during dinner or for snacks during the day, when we are stressed and nervous. Also, we are not doing enough physical activity because you do not have the desire or time, and this causes a slow but progressive increase of weight and the acquisition of bad habits”.

READ -"Switch to a healthy diet that fasting is good for the body and the mind"
Attention to the dietary imaginative Who, instead, a few extra pounds I already had, and pointed to the diet after the holidays, now can not do less than come to terms with the balance. Atkins, Dukan, the Palaeolithic, the ketogenic, or blood group: which diet to choose? “The extreme diets, or reckless, or the search for alternatives deceptive towards the weight loss easy and immediate - clear Red - are illusions that distract you from the path to a much healthier, represented by the change of the life style and the adoption of a behavior food more healthy”. In the new Guidelines, the experts of the Create explain that the extreme diets such as that of the blood group, the alkaline diet or the paleolithic are not based on scientific evidence, series: “In general – continues Rossi – we should be wary of all the diets that are based on the strong limitation or exclusion of certain food groups, such as the abolition of the carbohydrates or that otherwise involve eating only fruits and vegetables”. Dukan, Atkins and other diets of exclusion: because they work? Yet, those who follow these diets can lose weight. Then they run? “The calories are all the same – clear Red. Our body is a thermal machine, if cutting calories, eliminating entire food groups as it does in drastic diets, it is natural that you slim. But all of these diets only work in the short term because then you start to eat as before or even more, taking up all the pounds lost”.

always Consult a professional To complicate the scenario, especially at this time of year, there are also some professionals and specialists in nutrition, with the requirements of food patterns imaginative or ‘shortcuts’ unhealthy. “The problem is that these diets are proposed by anyone. Instead - and recommends that the expert – you should always inquire about the qualifications of those who propose the diet and to trust only to a nutritionist or a biologist and nutritionist who has a specific expertise because a poor diet can do damage and can not absolutely be prescribed by beauty therapists, personal trainers or anyone who manages a store of foods for special dietary use”. Therefore, if you have doubts you can also consult the new Guidelines for a Healthy Diet that you can download for free from the site or you can consult the experts of the Create Food and Nutrition via e-mail to the box

In people without health problems, can be 15 days of detoxification: “Two weeks of eating only meat, fish, salad and a little fruit eliminating bread and pasta – suggests Red – allow to deflate and cleanse losing up to three pounds. But this diet should serve to establish a shema sustainable food in the long run”. In short, we should always be on a diet? “No, " answers the expert.
