The essence and characteristics of the hormonal metabolic technique of weight loss ^
The meaning of the metabolic diet is to minimize the release of hormones of insulin and estrogen, on which the accumulation of fat deposits depends, and to promote the appearance of hormones that burn fats( epinephrine, norepinephrine, testosterone, somatotropin).
In order to lose weight, you do not need to count calories and starve the body. The secret of the food system is simple - you need to correctly distribute the products in the daily diet.
Often in the reviews of the metabolic diet indicate the absence of contraindications, but in fact it is not. There is a certain risk. It is associated with changes in the hormonal system that are stressful to the body.
This is especially true for people suffering from cancer, diabetes and disorders of the endocrine system. Pregnant women and lactating mothers are forbidden the first stage of the diet. Before the start of the dietary course, you should always consult a doctor.
Pros of the metabolic method of weight loss:
