How to lose weight by the summer: dr. udre’s tips

lose weight by the summer

YOU PROBABLY MET THOUSANDS OF PATIENTS IN YOUR LIFE? DO DIFFERENT OVERWEIGHT CATEGORIES HAVE ANY PECULIARITIES?

A person who weighs 140 kilograms is much easier to make to part with excess weight. It is much more difficult, when a woman weighs 65 kg, and needs to get rid of two or three kilograms. 

If a person is truly overweight, and not simply wants to shed a couple of extra kilograms, it is a signal that food problems are very serious. If a woman is close to her desired weight, she needs to correct only a few “flaws” in her diet. Find a way to correct them is a very delicate moment.

WHAT IS THE ESSENCE OF YOUR DIET?

It's very simple. There is a list of foods that patients should not eat. You must avoid:

  • grains,
  • white bread (whole-wheat bread is allowed),
  • rice,
  • pasta,
  • cereals,
  • biscuits,
  • fats (olive and vegetable oils are allowed),
  • whole milk (other dairy foods are allowed, e.g. plain yogurt, cottage cheese with less than 20% fat is allowed).

It is recommended to eat meat no more than two or three times a week. It is best if the patient manages to switch from meat to fish. You are allowed to consume any seafood that you like, including:

  • scallops,
  • oysters,
  • mussels,
  • various kinds of fish.

You can eat vegetables and fruits, and drink only freshly squeezed juices. You do not need to count calories.

THIS IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE DUKAN PROTEIN DIET. WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF HIS METHOD? WHAT IS HIS MAIN MISTAKE?

My weight loss diet existed before the Dukan diet appeared and gained popularity. Our methods have a lot in common, but Dr. Dukan copied a lot from me.

  1. The basis of his diet is the consumption of meat and proteins.
  2. Dukan bans vegetables, and my patients eat them in smaller amounts.
  3. My diet has a few categorically prohibited products, and almost everything can be consumed in smaller amounts.
  4. People can keep to this diet regime for many years.

DUKAN PROTEIN DIET

We saw the results of Dukan’s work – after his diet, very obese people were visiting us in the hope that they will be able to regain their optimal weight.

BUT TO CONSUME ONLY PROTEINS IN LARGE QUANTITIES, YOU MUST BE VERY HEALTHY, RIGHT?

Yes, such diet makes causes washing out of calcium, and body begins suffering from total imbalance and blood “acidification” occurs. Health problems in such conditions are inevitable, yet they will not appear until several years later, and not immediately.

IF YOU STICK TO YOUR DIET, HOW MUCH CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT IN A MONTH? WILL EVERY PERSON MANAGE TO ACHIEVE A RESULT?

The amount of weight lost depends on the patient and his initial weight. I can guarantee the result, though, if the patient complies with all the conditions set by the doctor, and truly does refuse from the products that are forbidden by the diet.

WHAT TO DO WITH THE SWEETS?

At the first stage, you should do your best to completely remove sugar from your menu. In the next stage, when you feel that your weight has decreased and stabilized, you can afford having some honey or sugar. The main thing is to change your lifestyle and learn to eat in a way that allows you avoid cave ins”, and consume only allowed products for a long time.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOUR DIET IS CALLED WITH LAGERFELD’S NAME?

Lagerfeld once told me: “Jean-Claude, you saved my life. What can I do for you?“and suggested “Let’s write a book together. You write a book, and I will add my name and photos.” It was his gift.

MANY GIRLS TAKE LAXATIVES AND DIURETICS FOR WEIGHT LOSS. HOW DANGEROUS IS THIS?

It’s horrible. In France, diuretics are sold only with a prescription. These medications are very dangerous when used in large quantities. In practice, however, taking a box of such pills at once is physically impossible.

If you take a diuretic, it can cause urination, which will continue for 24 hours without stopping – these are the risks. Constant use of laxatives (even if it is plant diuretics) causes irritation of the entire mucous membrane of the body.

LAXATIVES

WHAT RADICAL, YET SAFE WEIGHT LOSS METHODS CAN YOU RECOMMEND? SOMETIMES, A GIRL NEEDS TO QUICKLY FIT INTO A SKIRT, AND THIS IS A QUESTION OF TWO CENTIMETERS.

There is a fasting method, in which you are allowed to have only vegetables or soups in small quantities. The body receives food, liquid (you need to drink a lot), and the girl grows thin without consequences. But you should not use such express weight loss diet for more than 4 days.
