    Top metabolism: lose weight with the molecular diet

    To lose weight in a healthy and effective way, you don't have to pay attention to calories, but to the composition of what you bring to the table. Doctor is absolutely convinced of it Pier Luigi Rossi, specialist in Food Science and in Hygiene and Preventive Medicine in Arezzo and creator of the molecular method, so named to emphasize the importance of the nutrients contained in foods compared to the energy they provide.

    "70 g of Parmesan and 80 g of pasta are both worth 280 calories, but they are made up of very different molecules, each of which has a different impact on the body", points out our expert. With his help we try to understand what should we eat.




    Too many "refined" carbohydrates and saturated fats make your metabolism go haywire

    Whether the metabolism goes haywire depends on what we put in the menu. «The modern diet is exaggeratedly rich in white bread, refined pasta and rice (sources of easily assimilated carbohydrates) and of red meat, cheese and eggs (full of saturated fat) », explains Dr. Rossi. "All these foods promote weight gain, both because the excess sugars present in the blood are transformed by insulin into fat, and because they inflame the body and unbalance the intestinal bacterial flora on which the ability of cells to burn calories depends ".


    Soluble fiber and "good" lipids encourage cells to use more calories

    The molecular method provides for a very small intake of the food under accusation. «The diet is balanced and is based on a precise sequence of foods within the meal. The menu abounds low glycemic index carbohydrates, that is, those that do not cause the blood sugar level to rise excessively but rather keep it stable, prolonging the sense of satiety. Among these are whole grain cereals, legumes and vegetables: they are rich in water-soluble fiber, which slows down the absorption of glucose and lipids.



    As for the fats present, they are almost exclusively monounsaturated ones (supplied in particular by olive oil) and polyunsaturated ones (which are abundant in dried fruit and fish) », says our expert.


    2 weeks to rebalance the microbiota and 5 to streamline critical points

    The diet is divided into two phases (see the menus below). «The first lasts 2 weeks: it serves a limit the amount of saturated lipids circulating in the body and to restore the integrity of the intestinal microbiota. There are 3 cycles of 5 days, 4 of which are based on plant foods only and the fifth with the addition of eggs and fish.

    The next phase, on the other hand, consists of 7 cycles of 5 days, for a total of 5 weeks. The goal is activate the consumption of fats accumulated inside the cells, with consequent reduction of rolls. In each 4-day cycle they have mainly protein meals, which serve to regulate the secretion of insulin (the hormone that transforms excess sugars in the blood into fat) and are based on meat, fish, eggs, dairy products plus vegetables and a reduced amount of carbohydrates such as bread and fruit; one day, on the other hand, it provides mainly carbohydrate meals, with pasta or whole grains or legumes as well as vegetables and fruit, to avoid ketosis and provide adequate doses of glucose to the body ", concludes the expert.

    The guidelines for phase 1

    - Always provide a hot drink for breakfast: it promotes bowel emptying and, therefore, the elimination of toxins with benefits for the balance of the bacterial flora. For the same reason, drink water before, during and after each meal.

    - For breakfast, combine cereals and oil seeds to ensure you have an adequate proportion of carbohydrates and proteins.

    - Start each meal with a plate of raw seasonal vegetables. The ideal is green leaf salad mixed with fibrous vegetables such as celery or carrots (the vegetables must all be finely chopped to facilitate digestion).

    - For dressing, use 3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil for lunch and 2 for dinner.

    - Conclude each meal with a plate of cooked vegetables or hot minestrone.

    - As a hunger breaker you can take mixed extracts or smoothies of vegetables (80%) and seasonal fruit.


    The rules for phase 2

    - Even during phase 2, always have a hot drink for breakfast and drink water before, during and after each meal to promote physiological bowel movements.

    - On protein days, treat yourself to a fruit and / or vegetable snack in the middle of the morning and a snack to ensure the correct intake of carbohydrates.

    - The rule of starting each meal with a portion of raw vegetables also applies in this phase, even more so during the carbohydrate day: the water-soluble fiber slows down the absorption of glucose.

    - Finely chop raw vegetables to enhance their antioxidant power and their alkalizing action and not burden digestion.

    - Conclude each meal with a plate of cooked vegetables: cooking promotes the absorption of carotenes, essential for cellular metabolism.

    - In the evening, opt for a vegetable cream and / or finely chop the vegetables before eating them.



    Microbiota target

    The quality of food influences the composition of intestinal bacteria which, among their many functions, also have that of regulating metabolism.

    "If the number of pathogenic germs increases and the colonies of beneficial bacteria decrease, on the other hand, inflammatory molecules can be generated that can slow it down. To defend the integrity of the microbiota, the fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, sourdough bread, probiotic-enriched yogurt, kefir, vinegar, tempeh, miso, and kombucha tea. Kefir is among the most effective because this drink contains over fifteen different species of live and viable microorganisms. No less valuable are lacto-fermented vegetables, such as sauerkraut: provide significant amounts of dietary fiber and lactobacilli.

    Their name derives from the fermentation process to which they are subjected after being washed, dried and cut into small pieces: they remain about 2 weeks closed in an airtight glass jar, well pressed and with the addition of salt. In this way the production of beneficial lactobacilli is activated », explains Dr. Rossi.
