What is phase 2 of the high protein diet about?
The purpose of phase 2 of the high protein diet is is to mantain the process of ketosis going on in our body and also to include one “real” protein meal into our diet.
Remember! We are still keeping the carbohydrates to the minimum. This helps to further lose weight but not as fast as in phase 1.
Who is the high protein diet not for?
It is also not suitable if you are allergic to: milk, fish, eggs, gluten.
It is also not suitable if you suffer from anorexia, bulimia, serious psychiatric illnesses, kidney diseases, heart diseases, disorders of metabolism of minerals, blood clotting disorders (including patients treated with warfarin), gallstone stones, and metabolic diseases (e.g., phenylketonuria, gout, and others).
How long should I stay in phase 2 of the high protein diet?
The length of the second phase depends on how long the first phase was:
-> phase 2 takes at least twice the length of the 1st phase.
At lunch time, have one real meal with high content of protein, for example some meat or a soy substitute with vegetables.
If you do not have time to prepare a regular meal, prepare a protein shake. Never omit the protein meal! Otherwise you will start losing muscles and we most certainly do not want that :.). Other foodstuff that you can eat in unlimited quantity is vegetable, but only some. See below ????
Drink a lot. At least 1.5-2 litres of water a day. If you do not manage this, you risk a nasty headache. Drink unsweetened drinks: non-sparkling water or green tea (no fruit tea). And, obviously, NO ALCOHOL!
Continue taking your complex vitamins and minerals regularly and do not forget to MOVE aka EXERCISE :-).
As a basis for your real meal you can choose from the following two: 2 hard boiled eggs or 100 gr veal / lean beef, game or liver or 150 gr chicken, turkey or rabbit (without skin) or 200 gr lean fish.
What vegetables are allowed in phase 2 of the high protein diet?
Broccoli / Cauliflower / Zucchini / Leek / Chicory / Radishes / Cucumber / Spinach / Bean pods / Cabbage / Brussels Sprouts / Celery white / Fennel / fresh mushrooms / Asparagus / Aubergine / Lettuce (all kinds) / Soybeans (sprouts) / Rucola / Gourd / Tomato / Pepper
Yahoo, you can now eat tomatoes and peppers in moderation :-). You can prepare the vegetables in any way. Use 1 teaspoon of olive oil per day. Do not forget: Do not use onion in any meals, use leeks instead – works great. You can also use powdered garlic or one small garlic clove per day.
You can eat as much vegetable in the day as you want but the minimum is twice a day! Vegetable is very important – our body needs fiber.
