Diet: Low-Calorie Diets
Low Calorie Diets
Low-calorie diets are a form of diet in which one carefully monitors the amount of calories that one gets in one day. The starting point is that the fewer calories you consume, the more you lose. The beer diet, the bread change diet, the fruit diet and the soup diet are popular calorie-poor diets.
Lose weight by drinking beer? It sounds like a fairy tale! The beer diet is particularly suitable for men, and in practice it seems to cause a kilogram of weight loss every two weeks. The starting point of the beer diet is "taking fewer calories than using = losing weight". With many diets you have to count calories time after time, which can be frustrating and inconvenient. In the beer diet you count the calories beforehand and determine the number of beers that you may eat one day, which you supplement with sandwiches.
Beer Diet Guidelines

No guarantee of a healthier life, but on weight loss
Kind of beer does not matter
Vegetables, fruit, fatty fish and nuts are allowed
