Phases 1 & 2 of Eurodiet method are designed to activate a mild physiological ketosis under medical supervision, according to specific indications and in the absence of contraindications.
They allow significant weight loss (within a medically controlled period of time), mainly from fatty tissue.
The significant reduction of body weight at the initial stage of a weight loss program has been positively correlated with maintaining this loss in the long run.
Phases 3 & 4 of Eurodiet method focus on diet with low or reduced carbohydrates and low glycaemic load.
Low-carb diets are effective in controlling weight, improving glycaemic control and reducing risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
Phases 3 & 4 can either follow the ketogenic phases 1 & 2 or signify the starting point of Eurodiet method, gradually leading to adopt healthy nutrition choices that set the basis of a balanced diet. The starting phase, recommended by the supervising doctor, is personalized according to personal medical history.
The starting phase, although different for each individual, has a typical menu that includes a number of Eurodiet products of high nutritional value, high protein content and low in carbohydrate and fat (selected among a set of more than 80 products), as well as other food options.
