Protein Diet or Low Carbohydrate Diet, the differences.
What's the difference?
Our protein diet products all contain less carbohydrates and they are enriched with extra proteins that you need during the diet. (Because you are only allowed to eat a limited amount of carbohydrates per day)
Our low carb products contain less carbohydrates, they are not enriched with proteins.
The main difference is that the low-carb diet is used as a lifestyle and the protein diet is used to control your weight.
Can I use products from another diet?
Yes you can...
If you do the protein diet you choose products from the category "Protein diet" for your meals, next to that you can also use products from the category "Low carb diet". For every product is indicated if you can eat it in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th phase. These products may not count as meals per day, but you can often eat them as snacks! However, if you do the low-carb diet you are not trying to reach a fixed number of protein-rich products per day, you are just making sure you eat less carbohydrates. You can also eat the products that fall under the category "Protein diet", you will notice when you eat them that they give you a saturating feeling. This is because of the proteins!

The protein diet of Bregje

Why are proteins important?
Proteins are the most important nutrient for our body, they are needed to build, maintain and repair tissues. In a classic diet we eat less. Theratio of carbohydrates, fats and proteins remains the same, only the amount weeat is less. In the Protein diet we create a situation where there is more protein and less fat and carbohydrates.
Another typical phenomenon in the classic diet is the loss of muscle mass due to a shortage of proteins and a lower metabolism. Your body will receive less food (fuel) and will lower its energy burning rate. The result is the well-known 'yo-yo' effect if you start eating lots of carbohydrates again afterwards.
