Chrono diet was created by the French doctor Alain Delabos who studied “chronobiology” and he used his knowledge to improve human diet.
What is it based on? Basically your body works differently at different time periods and is processing the food depending on when you consume it. Among other things, each body is different in size, shape and bone structure and so the amount of consumed food should be different.
In Chrono diet you should follow the rule of combining food. Proteins and carbohydrates should be consumed only in the morning for breakfast.
You mustn’t skip meals.
It is important to have three meals and between them 5 hour pause to regulate the insulin and blood sugar levels.
It is recommendable to do interval trainings and the best combinations are rapid and slow walking. Do the exercises only in the morning.
Products that you should avoid are: milk, sugar, white flour and yogurt.
This diet quite quickly has become popular because you don’t need to count the calories; you just need to obey simple rules.
A few rules:
If you are taller you can eat more. The amount of food that can be consumed depends on how tall you are.
The bigger your bones are, the less weight you should lose. You can count how big your bones are by measuring the wrist. Average size is 6cm.
For those who want sweets: Eat food that contains only carbohydrates from the moment you feel hungry until late afternoon.
You can choose 2 meals by wish within the week.
No sugar in your coffee or tea
No milk or yogurt!
Do not eat if you aren’t hungry.
Eat a banana 1 hour before you start training
