THE DIET

Danish Diet...for a change in your metabolism
I suggest you read my comments, before starting the Danish Diet. See my weight loss graphics here.
NOT for vegetarians. Vegetarians should go here. This diet must be followed for 13 days, that's why it's (quite) difficult, but very efficient. The diet changes your metabolism, and its effects last for about 2 years. This means that once you have completed the diet you can eat normally and you won't gain weight. It's not one of the usual diets, but one that improves "burning" your calories. The diet is effective even after it's completion.
IF the diet is followed precisely according to instructions, you can loose between 7-20 kg (15–44 lb.) [read my comments], and you are NOT allowed to start the diet for another 2 years. You can start the diet after two years, if necessary...
If during the diet you make any deviations from the written plan, STOP the diet immediately. It will no longer have the desired effects on your metabolism. The diet may be attempted again after 6 months, and not before. IF you broke the "rule" before the 6th day of the diet, you can start it again after 3 months.
Because the diet takes about two weeks, it's quite difficult to follow it. TIP: Try to start this diet when you have no plans to leave town, go to parties etc. These situations are saboteurs to any diet...
Purchase all ingredients before starting the diet. Going to the grocery store during the diet is just asking for trouble... hehehe
IF you feel hungry during the diet ... drink WATER. Plenty. At least 2 liters (0,5 US gallon = 6-8 glasses) / day
The salad in the diet plan is fresh green lettuce salad.
The cod (fish) can be replaced with trout or turbot.
Coffee can NOT be replaced with tea and you must use the cube of sugar when specified.
Natural yogurt is yogurt with NO fruit or sugar.
You can NOT have alcohol, chewing gum (both contain sugars that will alter the effects of the metabolism change)
For the fresh fruit you can use any fruit on the Negative Calorie Food List
The tomato is to be eaten raw
When there is no food portion specified, you can eat as much of it as you want (ex: salad, spinach, celeriac)
read also the FAQ NOTE: The results of Danish Diet (or any diet) vary from one person to another, depending also on HOW MUCH weight you have to lose and how your body reacts to various food. The more you have to lose, the more you will lose... [see the Hall of Fame of the Danish Diet or weight loss results]
This diet is not meant to cure all of your weight loss ills, but it is a good start. The average weight loss for this diet is between 10-20 lb. After it's completion, begin to use the Negative Calorie Diet to continue to lose weight. Exercising regularly will increase weight loss.

The diet must be followed EXACTLY as it is, no more, no less !!!FAQ
The diet is As It IS. Replacements are NOT recommended. But if you have to make some replacements, here are some suggestions:
Remember to drink a lot of water !!!
salad: LETTUCE – no limit ! (tell me if YOU can eat more than 2-3 per day !)
spinach: doesn't really matter how much you eat... I (could) eat 200-300 grams (~7-10 oz), no more!
celeriac is the white round part of the celery root. If you can't find it, try celery...
oil – I used sunflower oil. But it really doesn't matter, you won't consume TONES of it! So you may use any type of oil.
tea – herbal tea is fine
coffee – try decaf if caffeine bothers you. Only one! Can NOT be replaced with something else.
lamb is lamb, nothing else. It can be delicious, if you know how to prepare it. (muslims really know how to prepare delicious lamb – ask one!). Can NOT be replaced...
how to prepare meat? Boiled, grilled, stewed... as long as it's tasty and not... fried!
ham: can be chicken ham, not only pork
you can use salt, pepper and other seasonings
fish can NOT be replaced - if you replace it, won't be the same diet anymore...
1/2 can of ham = ~200 gr. (~6-7 oz) of (low fat) ham.
1 cube of sugar = 1 teaspoon = 10 grams (0.3 oz)
1 pot of yogurt, cheese = ~200 gr. (~ 6-7 oz)
g = gram
1 dl (deciliter) = 0.1 l (liter) ~ 3,3 oz
measurements conversion table: weight volume
Remember...
If you decide to start the Danish Diet, please send me your age, sex and your daily weight during these 13 days of diet. Thanks :)
If you are a teenager, you should know dieting is not recommended at this age and can be very dangerous - please consult your doctor for professional advice! I suggest replacing junk food with vegetables and fruits from the Negative Calories Foods. This should do the trick - success in weight loss!
If you consider that the Danish Diet is too strict for you... there is still hope. BIG hope! Try the negative calorie food concept. It really works.

  4. I just finished my first day. I do feel hungry but it's not too bad. I'm really tired though. But after dinner I get very energetic lol, probably because of the steak.
