Hamptons Diet: How It Works
The Hamptons Diet works by introducing some elements of the Mediterranean science of healthy eating into the traditional low-carbohydrate way of dieting, which is the proven way to lose pretty much excessive body fat in a rather short period of time. Besides, the diet tends to be not about deprivation, but about the joy and happiness, usually associated with the Hamptons lifestyle.
In fact, the mode of action of the Hamptons Diet is based on several key principles. The most important one is probably that following some pure low-carb or low-calorie plans is not the best option for overweight and obese people. That is why the Hamptons Diet works by teaching its followers how to choose right foods that would help them lose weight and become healthier.
Dr. Pescatore puts a special emphasis on the role of fats in one’s ration. Though his plan is close to the Atkins diet, Dr. Pescatore says that not all fats are good for people. At the same time, the author of the Hamptons is not with those people, who consider “fat” to be the bad word. In fact, the Hamptons Diet is the promotion of the monounsaturated fats as the only healthy type of fats.
It is not a surprise that saturated and highly processed fats are not good or even harmful for one’s health. However, Dr. Pescatore goes even further saying that even olive oil and canola oil are not the best choices for those, who fight against obesity. He underlines the health risks associated with the processed or poor quality olive oil.
The Hamptons Diet offers its own source of monounsaturated fat. It is macadamia nut oil, produced in and imported from Australia. Though this type of oil is quite rare and expensive, Dr. Pescatore says that the recent studies prove that it contains more nutritionally important substances than olive oil.
Proving its concept of fat consumption, Dr. Pescatore refers to the results of the study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in February 2004 by Dr. Christine Pelkman, who reported that moderate-fat diets rich in monounsaturated fats (e.g. macadamia nut oil) were better at reducing weight and lowering risk for cardiovascular disease; besides, they were easier to follow.
The Hamptons Diet is also very selective as to the carbohydrates sources. It promotes the consumption of the so-called complex or slow carbohydrates. They are called “slow”, because it takes much time for a human organism to break down such carbohydrates in the digestive tract. Consequently, the longer the consumed food is digested – the longer one does not feel hungry. Besides, promoting slow and low-glycemic carbohydrates, the Hamptons Diet maintains the stable sugar level in blood.
Encouraging dieters to consume more green leafy vegetables and fish the Hamptons Diet provides a natural and healthy source of vitally-important vitamins, phytonutrients and microelements, which also contribute to proper metabolism and thus weight loss.
Finally, it should be noted that among the followers of the Hamptons Diet are said to be Hollywood celebrities Sara Jessica Parker and Renée Zellweger. Well, this could mean that at least for someone the Hamptons Diet really works for 100%, making people thin, rich and famousJ
