A diet based on chemical reactions in the body after eating any food belongs to the development of the American Osama Hamdi, who by scientific methods wanted to deal with diabetes and its consequences. But even people without such a serious illness perfectly lose weight without harming their well-being and hungry fainting, so this method of losing weight is finding more and more of its fans. In order for the body to be reprogrammed to break down fats, a chemical or egg diet must be followed very strictly.
A decrease in the amount of carbohydrates received in the body and a large amount of protein allows the body to start looking for reserves in itself for energetic life. Usually, all the energy goes into our body just along with carbohydrates. So, in the mode of their sharp shortage, the body is able to recharge itself with those fats that are deposited in it. The calorie content of food does not decrease sharply, protein is supplied regularly, so muscle mass does not suffer at all, only the fatty layer is gone.
Thus, Osama Hamdi’s egg diet produces a long supporting effect – the body does not weaken, the muscles are in good shape, the body texture is constantly improving, especially if you adhere to a sporting lifestyle and exercise during the diet.
People with diabetes, and those who constantly have an overwhelming sense of hunger, should stick to a protein-protein diet, because it is the key to healthy well-being and weight loss. Non-rapid absorption of proteins leads to the absence of fluctuations in blood sugar, a prolonged feeling of fullness from food. As a result, you need to eat less often, but the body does not feel deprived.
An egg or chemical diet may not be suitable for people with certain chronic diseases, so a specialist’s consultation is necessary before starting it.
Osama Hamdi’s egg diet is calculated for 4 weeks, and this is its peculiarity. It does not give quick results, but at the end of this period a positive effect invariably occurs – it is lost from 9 to 28 kilograms. The more weight that you need to lose, the more actively a person loses weight using this technique. It is categorically impossible to break the diet, not a single meal can be skipped, the prescribed products cannot be excluded from them. In addition, changing the menu on certain days in some places is also prohibited.
The protein principle of the diet (eggs and cottage cheese are the most valuable source of protein in the body) can adversely affect the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, therefore, to avoid this, drink at least 2 liter of water per day.
Large meals of diet are also not provided, many people who are accustomed to filling their stomachs to a state of overeating, may feel hungry after dinner. However, the rules of this method of eating include snacks of carrots or cucumbers a few hours after the main meal, and the number of such snacks is not limited.
Lost from the diet can not continue it from an interrupted day. Everything will have to start over again, so it is better to carefully follow the rules from the very beginning. The apparent complexity of these rules is more than compensated by the first results of weight loss after 7-10 days after the start of following the diet.
The menu of the egg diet is very diverse. You can eat and need a large number of fruits, all vegetables, except for a couple of prohibited, lean meat, but you need to cook foods without using any fat. Drinks are acceptable almost everything, tea and coffee can be consumed without sugar.
Types of Osama Hamdi diet
Due to the increasing number of followers of the diet based on proteins from Osama Hamdy, several of its subspecies appeared. The most popular 2 varieties – the one in which the emphasis is on eggs, and cottage cheese.
The basis of the egg diet is a soft-boiled chicken egg, which contains few calories, but many nutrients, vitamins of all subgroups, niacin, choline, folic acid, most of the necessary minerals. At the start of the diet, you do not need to eat eggs, the food consists of the usual products of various groups – meat, fruits and vegetables. And starting from the second day of the diet, eggs will be included in the menu on a daily basis, sometimes in several meals at once.
From the second week of the diet, eggs will need to be eaten for breakfast and dinner, mono diet will take place on the menu in the third week, when every day will be devoted to either fruit, or vegetables, or meat. Sometimes there will be days when it will be possible to eat everything that is not prohibited in any quantity.
The essence of the week under the number 4 in terms of the menu is reduced to the exact use of the daily volume of the designated products. Plus the fact that you can eat when you want, the minus is not rich in calories (and therefore quite “hungry”) filling the menu.
So, in the fourth week you need to eat as follows:
- on the first day, it is recommended to eat a quarter of chicken with toast, a couple of cucumbers, an 1 can of low-fat tuna and 3 tomatoes, and seize all with citrus;
- for Tuesday, the previous menu is somewhat trimmed – cucumbers and tomatoes remain, fruit can be eaten 1, but not necessarily citrus, but meat can be whole 2 slice;
- On Wednesday, eat cottage cheese with toast, cucumbers and tomatoes, citrus, a portion of boiled vegetables;
- Thursday can be considered a meat day, because half the chicken with toast is allowed, according to 1 cucumber, grapefruit and any other fruit, 3 tomato;
- Friday will not allow overeating; 2 eggs, 1 citrus fruit, 1 portion of cabbage (lettuce) and 3 tomatoes are acceptable;
- but on Saturday it will turn out to be enough – a pair of steamed chicken breasts, 2 of tomato and cucumber, 125 grams of white cheese or cottage cheese, and yogurt and orange will complement the diet;
- On Sunday, the menu includes a bank of tuna, 2 cucumber and tomato, a curd spoon, a small citrus fruit, 1 toast and a portion of permissible boiled vegetables.
The egg diet is well calibrated, it starts the process of establishing chemical processes in the body to digest food and convert the received calories into energy, which is why kilograms melt very quickly, and the health of followers of the diet improves.
In the variant of the cottage cheese diet based on protein intake, there are more pitfalls, because here the quality of the curd or cheese, which must be consumed daily, is important.
Based on the egg diet, a chemical diet has been developed, they differ slightly in approaches to permitted foods, as a result, the egg diet has become more popular among people who want to lose weight. The chemical diet is designed more for people who are sick, they do not come to it on their own, it is a consequence of treatment by doctors.
Products that can and cannot be used
The rules of the diet from Osama Hamdi allowed boiled vegetables – eggplant (zucchini), beans in pods, green peas, carrots; some fruits; fresh vegetables; meat; Soft-boiled chicken eggs; From drinks – teas and coffee, but everything is not sweet and without milk.
Knowing the list of prohibited foods is not necessary at all, because with proper diet, you must eat only what is allowed, without the slightest deviation. It is worth remembering only a few fruits that level the effectiveness of the diet: dates, grapes, figs and bananas. In terms of their chemical composition and effects on the human body, according to Dr. Osama Hamdi, it is they that lead to the deposition of fat and the occurrence of excess weight. Lamb is also prohibited.
Egg diet for 28 days provides a varied menu not only in each of the three meals, but also a change in the daily diet, and what’s most difficult is a change in its calorie content. So, in the first week in the morning we eat the same thing – eggs and half the average citrus. Thus, the body receives protein in order to start the necessary chemical processes for proper digestion and a vitamin and mineral complex based entirely on natural fruit juice.
On Monday, any fruit of the same type is put for lunch to replenish the supply of useful slow carbohydrates that are easily excreted with water from the body. Having dinner with meat, we get animal protein, since the cells of muscle tissue are perfectly supported with its help. In this way, a menu is built for each day of the first week, the main task of which is to break the usual rhythm of the body and set it up for a new redistribution of energy.
Next week we have the same breakfast every day again, similarly to the first week of the diet. We will have lunch on the first day with a salad – a source of vitamin-mineral complex and two boiled eggs, and again we have supper with eggs plus citrus. This is how the mechanism of increasing the proportion of protein in the total mass of nutrients entering the body starts.
On the third week of the diet on the first day, we eat only fruits, but always when we want. You can use all not prohibited and in any amount. Thus, the fruit carbohydrate enters the body, quickly turns into energy, and the remains are eliminated with the consumed water and fluid contained in the fruit itself. It is one type of fruit on this day that is explained by the fact that the chemical composition of each product varies, and in order to avoid disorientation of the biliary system and the accumulation of carbohydrates in the form of fat on the sides, you need to limit yourself to a single type.
The egg diet menu for the fourth week is more voluntary than for previous periods. You can independently arrange the products allowed for the day in the desired meals and not be limited in quantity. Every day let’s say a small citrus, a small toast, a pair of cucumbers and tomatoes. In addition, the menu must be entered:
- animal and vegetable protein;
- animal fats;
- vitamin-mineral complex contained in all fruits permitted on the diet;
- large amount of fluid.
Sharply completing any diet, there is always a risk of starting to overeat, which is why it is necessary to consciously approach such a food system, always begin it after the recommendations of a nutritionist, and finish, gradually going beyond the products that have been consumed in the past month.
