This diet includes a reduced intake of carbohydrates, and the emphasis is placed on fats and proteins.
Another advantage of this diet is that you can forget about counting calories and certain time in the day when you are allowed to eat, but you must abide by the rules.
The Swedish diet divides foods into 3 main groups:
- All types of meat
- All kinds of fish and crabs
- Eggs cooked in all ways
- Vegetables that grow above the ground (cabbage, kale, broccoli, zucchini, olives, tomato, spinach, mushrooms, lettuce, avocado, peppers)
- Dairy products, exclusively high fat ones (yogurt, butter, cream, curd, cheese)
- Nuts (sunflower seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, hazelnuts, Indian nuts, Brazil nuts)
- Vegetables such as beets, carrots, beets and celery
- Fruit. One fruit a day is enough as a dessert, and raspberries are recommended.
- Chocolate with a high cocoa percentage, (over 70% cocoa), 2 times a week
- Sugar, bottled juices, sodas, pastries, cakes, ice cream, muesli and artificial sweeteners
- Cereals and starches (bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, chips, cereals)
- Margarine and refined oils
- Alcohol, especially beer
The diet is simple and does not burden the body, so it is especially recommended in the moments when you want to quickly lose some weight without going hungry, or to discard excess fat.
