Phyto Detox "1 in 7": What is this simple way to lose weight permanently?
Easy to implement in our daily lives, this "1 in 7" plant-based detox method allows you to sustainably lose a few pounds and dramatically improve your health. Focus on this way to boost your metabolism every week, with Maxime Mességué, nutritionist and nutritionist.
The "1 in 7" or vegetable detox method: what is it?
This method, called "1 in 7" or "phyto detox" was conceived on the basis of the long-expressed observation that in order to lose weight you must limit yourself, and that the only way to lose weight is to choose diets that are in harmony with restrictions, deprivations, etc. till then. However, as Maxime Mességué, dietitian and nutritionist reminds us, "Overweight and obesity are still on the rise today!"
So the idea of this method is to stop the daily restrictions that lead to frustration and therefore long-term weight recovery, and choose one day a week of detoxing, while linking the rest of the time with a balanced rest. , but an unrestricted diet.
As the specialist reminds us, the “1 in 7” method is not a diet for slimming, and is not aimed at rapid weight loss, but rather is aimed at slimming a permanent and healthy figure.
By being careful just one day a week, we can expect slow and gradual weight loss, but this works in the long run.
The advantage of the “1 in 7” method is that it can be used by everyone, as it is aimed at taking care of your metabolism, health, and image, and allows you to restore balance, without risking the yoyo effect.
