Diet “Ten percent” menu
There are countless diets, so we have talked many times about the good ones, but also about the less effective ones, which last a short time and are prone to the yo-yo effect. However, lately there has been talk about the “Ten Percent” diet, which shows excellent results, where you can lose ten percent of your body weight within three weeks.
So, this diet can last for three weeks, but it can also be repeated in cycles until you finally reach the desired weight, but between each cycle you need to take a break of 20 days.
Why “Ten percent”?
“The advantage of this diet is to lose 5-10% of your body weight and set your goals accordingly. Many of them set unrealistic goals for weight loss, for example they want to lose 20-30% of their body weight in a very short time, which results mostly in frustration. It has always been more realistic to aim to lose 5-10% of your body weight. After a person loses the first 10%, they will know what they need to do to lose more weight.

“Bad cholesterol in the blood is reduced, blood pressure is regulated, and all of this significantly reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke,” said Dr. Ergin.
