The non-union diet excludes combining proteins and carbohydrates in one meal. It allows you to lose weight quickly, but if used for more than three weeks, it can lead to a yo-yo effect. What is the no-linkage diet and is it effective in losing weight?

Food divided into three groups

The diet of not combiningconsists in composing meals in such a way that they do not containproteinsandcarbohydrates. The creator ofdiet , Dr. William Hay, divided the foods into three groups. Protein is, for example, cooked meat, fish, poultry, meats, eggs, milk, cheese (up to 50% fat), fruit (excluding bananas). Carbohydrate is, among others bread, cereal, rice, pasta, potatoes, dried fruit, bananas, sugar. The third group, neutral, consists of, for example, vegetables, yoghurts, kefirs, cheeses with over 50 percent. fat, cottage cheese, cream, fats, nuts, cold-smoked meat and fish.

The non-union diet - for how long?

May be used for more than three weeks only after consulting a doctor.

Advantages of the diet

It is varied and rich in vitamins and minerals.

Disadvantages of a diet

The no-joining dietis too low in calories. It is limited to as little as 1000 kcal per day. And it has long been proven that 1000 kcal is not enough for the basic metabolism of the average woman. And this means that this diet can negatively affect the metabolic rate and quickly lead to the yo-yo effect as soon as we stop using it. Additionally, with such a low energy supply, it will also be difficult to provide the body with all the necessary nutrients. Therefore, the non-coupling diet is considered a so-called deficient. This diet can also cause weakness and a general decline in well-being.

Basic principles of the non-union diet in short

  • You can only combine protein with neutral or carbohydrate and neutral products in one meal.
  • The daily food ration is 1000 kcal.You eat often, but little. You must eat 3 meals, you can also 2 snacks.
  • You should eat one carbohydrate, one protein and one fruit and vegetable meal each day. You eat fruit for breakfast or as a snack. There must be a 2-3 hour break between proteins and carbohydrates. You only drink between meals.
  • Every lunch and dinner must contain at least one fat "extrasaler" (vitamin C, magnesium, iron, calcium, carnitine, iodine, chromium).
According to an expertMarta Turczyńska, MSc, dietitian, psychodietician, Laboratory of Dietetics and Obesity Treatment, WIML, Warsaw

The no-union diet, or: separable diet, has many followers. New varieties appear every now and then. People who use it boast about spectacular weight loss effects, and then… stop. This is because, to date, no scientific support has been found for the theory of the long-term slimming effect of not combining specific food groups. Scientific studies comparing the effects of weight reduction in people on a separate diet and traditional diet with the same caloric content did not show significant differences in people using both diets.

It is also worth remembering that combining proteins and carbohydrates does not interfere with the digestive process. Our digestive system is adapted to digesting meals that combine all macronutrients in its composition. We eat this food from our first days, drinking breast milk containing proteins, fats and carbohydrates. The individual components of the meal are digested in different parts of the meal and with the use of different digestive enzymes. The combination of carbohydrates with proteins in no way adversely affects our digestion. So we can go ahead and eat porridge with yoghurt for breakfast, or fish with porridge for dinner.

The no-joining diet can be used for 3 weeks. We should obtain a doctor's consent for further use. But remember that no diet brings such good results in the treatment of overweight and obesity as the consistent change of diet and adjustment of our daily diet to the individual needs of our body.

Don't do that

Before you apply the so-called diet. slimming, i.e. reducing body weight, consult your doctor or dietitian. A reduction diet to bring healing effects must be adapted to the individual needs of the body. Incorrectly selected reduction diet can lead to the development of obesity and even threaten your he alth and life.
