Danish Diet Menu

Danish Diet Menu

The Danish diet menu may be a tad too rigorous a regime to follow, but nonetheless people are taking this road to lose weight faster even if it doesn't prove to be healthy...

The Danish diet like many other regimens out there, promises results in fewer days with a huge change in overall appearance in no time. So what is this diet all about anyway? Skeptics wonder whether the diet really brings on a weight shedding of about 26 pounds in 13 days which is a lot of weight lost in almost two weeks. Is this even possible? Researchers say that although this diet can help those who need a faster way to lose weight, it isn't the kind that is highly recommended.
Nonetheless people are excited and jumping at the opportunity to try something quick, fast and easy. It may be the first two, but easy? No way. If you have what it takes in the self-control department, then this diet is for you. If you can self-motivate yourself to follow this strict and slightly maddening diet plan, then by all means go for it.
The diet supposedly began in Denmark, where it gets its name, and is a low-calorie diet that allows only a restricted amount of calories during the span of the diet plan. Those who cannot stick to the diet are at a huge loss, because if you want to pick it up again from scratch, should you deviate in those two weeks, you can't. So why do dieters have to be staunch?
Because your body has been put into such a state where it can't possibly switch to high cal foods and then back to the low cal ones. You'd have to wait for at least 3 to 6 months to start over. The food involved in the diet is so specific and unaltered, that dieters have to stick to only the said 13 day Danish diet menu. That's got to be tough.
13 Day Danish Diet Menu
If you're ready to start dieting in a way that is going to change the way you look, then I guess this drastic diet plan is your cup of tea. Just remember that once the 13 days are up, you can switch to other food alternatives but of a healthier choice no doubt. Some people gain weight again, being easy to pile on the calories within days, and some maintain it by joining an exercise program or eating foods that are low in calories but high on nutrition.
Don't push yourself beyond 13 days on this diet, for the detriment involved on your system can reach critical levels. The meals consist of three planned out portions that cater to breakfast, lunch and dinner. Let's find out how these foods place themselves within these three meal times to help you on lose weight fast.

The Danish diet menu isn't the easiest of regimes to follow, since it contains low-fat foods, with healthy cooking options without the use of fatty substances or ingredients. It even eliminates pastries and the likes. It truly is one's wish whether to start out on this kind of diet or not, since this isn't made for everyone. Initially it will be hard to follow seeing that food cravings are bound to creep into the picture, but willpower can get you through to the other side, should you stick to it religiously. Have a healthy tomorrow.
