The mechanism behind the protein diet

An increased high-quality protein intake

NEWDIET instant protein meals are based on extracts from cow’s milk, peas, soy and egg whites. They are metabolized by the body and lead to the production of purely natural compounds called ketone bodies (acetoacetate, acetone and beta-hydroxybutyrate). Not only are ketone bodies rich in energy, they have many more effects. For example, they can be an alternative source of energy for the brain. The high-protein diet also helps protect muscle tissue, which is a nearer and more accessible source of energy than adipose tissue. Ketone bodies also have a naturally euphoric effect (many customers report a very good mood during the diet).

A lowered carbohydrate intake

If less carbohydrates are consumed, this leads to an automatic lowering of the insulin level. This has a double effect on the body, on the one hand a hypoglycemic effect (reduced glucose content in the blood) and on the other hand an antilipolytic effect (the higher the insulin level in the blood, the less the body is ready to give up its fatty tissue as an energy source). By lowering the insulin level through the limited intake of carbohydrates through the diet, the breakdown of stored adipose tissue in the body is activated. At the same time the protein reserves (the body’s own muscle tissue) are protected. This means that in the course of weight loss the loss of muscle tissue remains minimal, as the body mainly degrades fatty tissue.

The protein diet NEWDIET isn’t a carbohydrate-free diet

NEWDIET products contain enough carbohydrates (about 50 g daily) in addition to the permitted vegetables for the normal functioning of the body (especially the central nervous system). NEWDIET is not carbohydrate-free and more similar to a fat-free diet.
