As Hippocrates said, you are what you eat. The meaning of this phrase concerns every person, who takes care of his health. The food we eat has a big impact on our vital activity, state of health and quality of life.

It's essential to diversify your diet. Every bite of food should provide you with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that are necessary for good health.

Carbohydrate diet based on rice:

Lunch consists of four tablespoons of white boiled and don’t forget to wash the rice before boiling in order to banish all starches, with a vegetable salad without oil and should be free from any kind of bread and choose some sort of meat whether chicken or steak grilled meat, and alter power with skimmed yoghurt instead of salad during another day.

The evening meal is a vegetable soup and a piece of toasted.

Between meals we recommend fruit such as apples, but at a rate of one piece without multiplication. This rice-based diet is ideal for two consecutive weeks , and then changed to the egg diet so the body does not get used to it and also to break routine.

As we mentioned above rice is a great source of energy and protein but you must not exceed eating the proportion of rice. However they are tons of starches like lentils and soy beans that are widely recommended for a healthy nutrition.
