Mechanism of action diet

low carbohydrate days force the body to expend its own reserves of glycogen (from food received only the most minimal amount of carbohydrates). Due to this there is the breakdown of adipose tissue.

the Next two days allow you to balance the loss of glycogen, preventing the adaptation of the organism to the new diet – in the end not made the transition to the so-called saving mode when the weight loss stops. Then the cycle repeats itself a day or two goes at getting rid of fat, and the next two on the original "solace" of the body.


the Result of this cyclical diet of carbohydrate alternation is to get rid of 5-7 kg of excess weight, without any harm to the body. What is called luck!
