Publisher's Summary

This bundle contains two best-sellers written by Sara Cappelletti: The Mediterranean Diet and Ketogenic Diet for Beginners. These two diets are known as two of the healthiest in the world to lose weight, get fit, and become a better person inside and out. 

Choosing to follow a Mediterranean diet allows you to maintain a proper ratio between the amount of calories contained in food and the individual energy needed, keeping the metabolism in balance and, consequently, the body weight. The intake of good fats such as those of fish, omega-3 and omega-6 - unsaturated and of plant origin - and lecithin and phytosterols also helps to fight the increase of triglycerides in the blood and to decrease the content of cholesterol, with benefits on the cardiovascular system. In this way, it is also possible to reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks. 

The ketogenic diet is a diet that provides meals rich in proteins and lipids and very poor in carbohydrates. Its name derives from the fact that this type of feeding leads to the formation of so-called ketone bodies (acetone, acetoacetate and 3-hydroxybutyrate). Its effectiveness is based on the assumption that low glucose levels force the body to derive energy from proteins and fats. 

In addition, minimal levels of sugar keep insulin concentrations constant - the hormone that controls the use of glucose - avoiding the accumulation of fat. 

The diet has two phases: the first one focuses on the elimination of carbohydrates, while the second provides for the reintegration. In general, the results are rapid, but a diet of this type subjects the body to a continuous and unhealthy stress. In the absence of sugars, the body is forced to spend more calories to convert fats and proteins into glucose. At the same time, the secretion of hormones that promote the disposal of fats and decrease appetite is stimulated. For these reasons, if the goal is to lose weight, the ketogenic diet is effective.
