Book of Clinical Guidelines on the Identification, Evaluation, and Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Adults states that the best way to lose weight is to adopt a low-calorie diet, a number of 800-1200 kcals per day. This diet proved to be able to lose weight as much as 10 percent for six months. While the speed of weight reduction is 0.5 to 1.5 kg per week. This fact was presented during book launching Sure-You-Can-Do-Fx Diet in Senayan, Jakarta, Thursday (05/27/2010).
However, before beginning to implement a diet with whatever model you know, should you need to know what the true meaning of the diet.
"The so-called diets are not really losing weight.'s Diet food. So, the diet here is how to implement a healthier diet," said Susana STP CSN CWN PDEng MSc, Head of Nutrifood Research Center Division.
So, if you do the diet to lose weight is simply eating less (eg no breakfast, or dinner), do not be surprised if you feel only hunger of whack. "Skip eating it will only inhibit the burning of calories," said Susana.
To lose weight, you need to do is reduce your calorie intake (accompanied by increasing physical activity or a combination of both). Calories derived from nutrients, namely carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. As already mentioned above, the recommended limit is 800-1200 kcals per day. You can still eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but with reduced portion.
For example, a scoop of white rice contains only 24 calories, 34 calories Uduk rice, and fried rice 36 calories. Just count how many spoons which you can consume if you want to restrict your calorie intake per day. Do not forget, you're still going to add side dishes and vegetables into your diet.[kesehatan.kompas.com]
