The Scarsdale diet originated in the U.S. a few decades ago. So it was presented as the ideal solution to obtain a rapid weight loss so as to be defined as a “miraculous diet”. Its inventor was Herman Tornower that studied scarsdale diet and vegetarians. Then he promised that with it it was possible to lose almost 500 gr. per day. He argued that it was possible to lose weight quickly with a drastic reduction in carbohydrate intake. So it was independent of calorie intake which could not undergo proportional reductions, ie “not to reduce calories excessively but to reduce carbohydrates a lot”. http://www.

LOW CARB DIET

It claims that fats should also be reduced (the reduction, however, must not be as drastic as that of carbohydrates). Then,in principle it is part of the “low carb” diets which therefore base their results on a ketogenic effect. So it is on the production of ketone bodies which have a slight toxic effect if produced for short periods but also anoresizing effects.  then scarsdale diet and vegetarians is a very healthy combination.  http://www.lowcarb.it

SKIP MEALS

  Speaking about scarsdale and vegetarians, despite what the defenders of this diet claim with it, the yo-yo effect would be encountered, that is, a rapid recovery of the lost weight. Of course it is considered one of the last minute diets not to be followed for more than 1 or 2 weeks. Obviously, in order for it to take effect and generate lasting benefits, it is necessary precise patterns. Another very important thing is to not give in to the temptation to skip meals. Scarsdale diet and vegerarians is a very good combination but it needs attention.

Therefore the breakfast, lunch and dinner sequence must be absolutely respected avoiding mid-morning “snacks” and mid afternoon. So if you want to lose weight for aesthetic and health reasons you have to do it by choosing healthy foods. So junk foods must be abolished in this diet. It is because they are always rich in toxins, free radicals, unsaturated fats and often simple sugars (therefore high glycemic index).   

                                                                                                                                              Another important thing is that carbohydrates must not represent, during the period of application of the diet, a majority portion. Therefore reduce both simple carbohydrates such as sugars and complex carbohydrates such as bread and pasta. Obviously you need to reduce fat by choosing lean foods so to reduce calories. Like any diet it is recommended to increase water consumption.

IMPORTANCE OF WATER

The reason for the increase in water consumption lies in the fact that water is beneficial for the body. But above all in the fact that this diet belongs to the category of “ketogenic diets”. Therefore increasing the introduction of water will greatly help the kidneys. Of course the increased renal work is due to the need to purify the body. It  follow by eliminating the ketone bodies that necessarily form during this diet by means of urine.   http://www.ketogenicdiet.it                                                                                                   

 I remind my readers that the production of ketone bodies is a “side effect” of the catabolism of body tissues . Orei as a consequence of the low-calorie and low-calorie regimen typical of this diet. So it should be superfluous to add (however I write it the same, you never know) that during this diet aimed at improving the state of health, purification or slimming, smoking and excess alcohol are absolutely not recommended. Healthy drinks such as purifying and deflating herbal teas (drunk without sugar or with a maximum of half a teaspoon of honey) are recommended.


                           

SOYA AND VIGOR DIET

Almost all diets are based on reducing the introduction of food aimed at weight loss. There are some particularly advanced diets that are based on another principle namely that of changing the metabolism. One of them is the Vigor diet. It aims to make the subject lose weight not only by making him eat less. But, above all, by making him burn more energy by acting on the metabolism.

The creator of this diet observed after a careful study period that reducing caloric intake for a long time does not lead to constant weight loss.

In fact leads to the adaptation of the organism to the new condition with a greater ability of the body to assimilate nutrients transforming them into reserve tissues ie fats.

METABOLISM SWITCHES

Studies about scarsdale diet and vegetarians by Dr. Duranti have shown that effective weight loss is obtained by acting on the “metabolism switches” in order to induce the transformation of sugars into energy and not into fats. Then this effect of scarsdale diet is obtained with a well-studied alternation of foods with an action also aimed at achieving a better hormonal balance. Obviously the effectiveness of this diet also depends on a correct lifestyle combined with moderate physical activity.     

                                                                                                                                  The name of this diet is VIGOR which derives from the acronym (Variation of the Glycemic Index of Rebalanced Hormones) which means that it is based on the principle that by reducing insulin peaks it is possible to keep blood sugar low. Frequently high blood sugar can induce insulin resistance i.e. the body will have difficulty regulating its blood sugar and this can lead to diabetes and weight gain. First of all, it will be necessary to ingest low glycemic index carbohydrates to stimulate the metabolism. This would prevent the build-up of glycogen in the liver and blood sugar which are one of the causes of weight gain. One of the low glycemic index foods that would be well suited to this diet is soy.                       

         LOW CARB FOR SCARSDALE AND VEGETARIANS

   Furthermore, it is the only one that should not be missing from the vigor diet of vegetarians, vegans and those who want to implement a drastic reduction in meat intake for health or ethical reasons. It is divided into various phases to be applied with five days a week (Mon – Fri) “low carb” with a reduction of carbohydrates in favor of proteins (eg legumes such as soy and others with vegetables), a detoxifying day ( Sat.) with a mainly vegetable ingestion and one day (Sun) which must be “high carb” with two good portions of carbohydrates (pasta or rice) to rebalance the metabolism. The constant application of this diet will produce positive effects on the metabolism in a few weeks with consequent weight loss and       control of the blood values ​​with consequent improvement of the state of health.

MANAGEMENT OF THE VIGOR DIET

The VIGOR diet acts on the metabolism switches by modifying the biochemical state of the organism in order to reduce the ingestion of carbohydrates with the aim of triggering those metabolic mechanisms that reduce the accumulation of those carbohydrates that will transform or induce the production of adipose tissue.

About scarsdale diet and vegetarians those who have tried a diet know that, often, the only caloric restriction is not enough to lose weight and that usually one must act at the metabolic level because it is necessary to prevent the body from accumulating adipose tissue. It is very effective in “teaching” the body to obtain energy by burning fat instead of carbohydrates. It is necessary to program a menu to be applied diligently every day so that a moderate calorie restriction is accompanied by a biochemical “conditioning” of the metabolism.   

                                                                                                                                                Obviously, because any diet regime is successful, it is always good that it does not induce a sacrifice in those who follow it, that is, that it is based on pleasant foods to eat. So a light, complete and nutritious breakfast is recommended and the same must also be true for lunch and dinner. I would start the day with a healthy breakfast based on soy milk, honey and dried fruit (the latter will provide a good supply of vitamin E and antioxidants as well as valuable proteins). So a soy burger (see recipe in the blog) and a fruit. I would end the day in perfect “Vigor diet” style with a dinner based on a legume salad and a plate of green salad topped with extra virgin olive oil with crumbled tofu inside.                 

               SCHEME OF SCARSDALE DIET                                  

    Scarsdale diet and vegetarian is a combination that need regularity. This dietary regime should be adopted from Monday to Friday. On Saturday and Sunday I recommend a similar variety of foods with a 25% increase in caloric intake. Here is a valid Vigor diet plan: MON – FRI: morning — – 300gr. SOY MILK; – 50gr. DI NOCI; – 2 SPOONS OF HONEY; spuintino —- 80gr. SOYA YOGURT; -1 APPLE; lunch —– 300gr. OF BIO SOY HAMBURGER (see recipe in the blog), 40gr. WHOLEMEAL BREAD, 150gr. STRAWBERRIES; dinner —— 100gr. SOY BEANS seasoned with garlic, parsley, extra virgin olive oil, 100gr. Diced TOFU WITH a side dish of green salad topped with extra virgin olive oil and soy sauce.

SAT – SUN: THE DIET COMPOSITION SHOULD BE SIMILAR TO THAT OF THE OTHER DAYS OF THE WEEK WITH THE ONLY VARIANT THAT I WOULD INCREASE THE CALORIAL SUPPORT OF 25% BOTH LUNCH AND DINNER WITH AN INCREASE OF 20% OF THE FRUIT QUANTITY.

This diet can be adopted without problems by anyone without serious blood sugar problems or some nutritional dysfunction. In individuals not affected by these problems it would represent a very healthy diet that would allow to keep blood sugar and values ​​such as cholesterol and triglycerides under control.
