Protasov's diet is a "democratic" way of phased weight loss with a minimum number of contraindications.
At the end of the twentieth century, the newspaper “Russian Israeli” published an original article by the famous nutritionist Kim Protasov, which turned people's minds over, as it forced them to completely rethink their eating behavior.
"Do not make a cult of food. A thin cow is not a gazelle yet," the doctor’s phrase rustled, like a sentence. In addition to a rigorous statement of the fact, Protasov presented for general familiarization an independently developed dietary nutritional scheme, with a description of the menu weekly and a list of allowed foods. Since then, after the first publication, the diet has been nicknamed in honor of the author, it still bears its name to this day.
The essence of the methodology
Kim Protasov's diet is designed for five weeks. Unlike most express programs (kefir, watermelon, cucumber, apple, chocolate), this weight loss technique does not cause stress to the body, but rather contributes to the systematic loss of extra pounds without compromising health.
Weight loss occurs as a result of the exclusion of simple carbohydrates and fats from the diet. And it is based on the use of vegetables, fruits, lactic acid products with a fat content of up to 5% during the first 14 days, as well as eggs, poultry, meat, greens from 3 to 5 weeks. In addition, carbohydrates with a high glycemic index, which slow down the process of losing weight, are completely excluded from the diet of a dieter. Thanks to this, it is possible to reduce the load on the pancreas, as a result, its work is normalized, and craving for sweets is reduced.
The abundance of protein in the menu contributes to the burning of adipose tissue and muscle building, and fiber, which is part of raw vegetables, normalizes the digestive tract, removes fluid, and provides a quick feeling of satiety.
The Protasov diet allows you to deal with 10 excess kilograms in 5 weeks, while its main advantage is that after the program ends, the weight does not return again.
It is noteworthy that cottage cheese, yogurt, vegetables can be eaten whenever and how much you want. From drinks it is allowed to drink purified water, green tea, weak coffee without sugar.
According to the reviews of those who have lost weight, "brawling" changes the taste of a person, as a result, the body gets used to a new healthy diet and there are absolutely no want to eat prohibited foods (fried, fatty foods, flour, confectionery).
The author of the diet claimed that during the observance of the protein - vegetable diet, a person loses weight as much as it is useful directly to his body. Intensive weight loss occurs between 21 to 35 days.
According to nutritionists, Protasov’s diet is recommended to be taken every year with the prophylactic purpose to unload the body, for everyone, even those who have no problems with being overweight.
Advantages and disadvantages
Despite the fact that the “brawl” was developed at the end of the last century, it gained popularity only at the beginning of the XXI century.
Advantages of the technique:
- lack of strict food restrictions;
- reduction in cravings for sweet "harmful";
- wide range of permitted products;
- building muscle mass (physical activity in combination with protein intake tones muscle muscles);
- obtaining visible results after the second week of losing weight;
- normalization of metabolism;
- detoxification of the body;
- intestinal saturation with bacteria and probiotics;
- increased libido;
- appetite suppression;
- lack of psychological stress;
- elimination of constipation (fiber, which is found in vegetables, stimulates intestinal motility);
- improving the functional state of the skin;
- availability (permitted products, unlike mixtures of Energy diets, can be found in any supermarket);
- lasting result (with the correct exit);
- feeling of lightness after eating.
Despite many advantages, the Protasov diet, if improperly observed or practiced in “forbidden” cases, can harm the body.
Contraindications for using the technique:
- gastric ulcer, chronic gastritis, duodenitis, esophagitis;
- lactose intolerance;
- milk protein allergy;
- metabolic disease;
- kidney stones, bile ducts;
- coronary heart disease, vegetovascular dystonia, hypertension, atherosclerosis;
- irritable bowel syndrome;
- pregnancy and lactation;
In addition, the diet is not without flaws.
Cons of the diet:
- lack of hot dishes during the first stage of the diet (provocation of pancreatic dysfunction);
- insufficient intake of carbohydrate foods (in 80% of cases causes dizziness, fatigue, weakness);
- the need to take "bulk" servings of vegetables - more than a kilogram per day (to achieve the daily calorie intake);
- the need for a complete exclusion of alcohol;
- monotonous diet.
Nutritionists strongly recommend that before practicing this weight loss technique, carefully study its advantages, disadvantages, contraindications and consult with your doctor.
Since the Protasov diet does not impose strict restrictions on food, in order to achieve a lasting result, exact observance of the fundamental rules is required. Violation of at least one of them slows down the process of losing weight and moves you away from the desired number on the scales.
The principles of the diet of Kim Protasov
- Choose natural dairy products. Under the ban food in which harmful additives are present: starches, dyes, sweeteners, thickeners, flavor enhancers, flavorings, stabilizers. The best option for daily use is home-made food.
- Observe drinking regimen. To stimulate the intestines on an empty stomach, it is recommended to use 500 milliliters of pure water (30 minutes before a meal). The daily fluid rate is 2 liters. Drink water in small portions (30 to 50 milliliters each), having previously distributed 70% of the daily volume in the first half of the day. Lack of fluid leads to hormonal imbalance, as a result, the effectiveness of losing weight is reduced by 2 - 3 times.
- Exclude the use of lozenges, lozenges or cough syrups. Ignoring this rule leads to the initiation of insulin triggers, and as a result, to an increase in hunger and cravings for sweet foods.
- Use only lean foods during the first two phases of the diet. At the same time, it is prohibited to completely exclude “healthy” fats from the menu, the daily norm of trideglycerides is 30 grams.
- Take multivitamin complexes to compensate for the deficiency of trace elements.
- Monitor the content of "hidden" salt in food. Excess of this substance leads to fluid retention in the body, the occurrence of edema and impaired heart function.
- Do not change the order of reception of permitted products.
- Monitor the condition of the body. If during the diet headaches, spasms in the intestines, pain in the epigastric region, pressure surges, renal colic, menstrual irregularities occur, you should immediately consult a doctor and interrupt the process of losing weight.
The following periods of "scuffle" are distinguished:
- first stage "Adaptation" (1 - 2 weeks);
- second stage "Intensive weight loss" (3 - 5 weeks);
- The third stage is "Exit".
After the completion of the first stage of the diet, blood glucose levels normalize, and as a result, cravings for sugary foods decrease.
Due to this, in 14 days the weight is reduced by 2 - 3 kilograms. Compliance with the above rules, during the second "fixing" phase, will help to lose another 4 - 5 kilograms. However, one can talk about the results only with the correct exit from the diet.
Consider in detail the description of the week.
The diet for the next 14 days consists exclusively of dairy products with a fat content of 0 to 5% and vegetables.
What you can eat at the first stage:
- green beans;
- parsley dill;
- white cabbage, Beijing cabbage;
- asparagus (except Korean);
- bell pepper;
- cottage cheese;
- green apple (no more than 3 pieces per day and only after taking the main dish);
- egg (1 piece per day).
Vegetables are preferably consumed raw, in extreme cases, minimal heat treatment is allowed, steam.
At first glance, in view of the strict restriction of products, 1 week may seem unbearable, but this is not so. From the above ingredients, you can prepare many healthy cocktails, salads, snacks that will diversify the menu.
In the first 14 days, it is important to ensure that the ratio of dairy products and vegetables eaten is 1: 2.
As a salad dressing, use fat-free unsweetened yogurt, fermented baked milk or lemon juice.
It is forbidden at the first stage:
- sugar, sweeteners;
- meat fish;
- vinegar, sauces, mayonnaise, ketchup;
- Korean carrots
- sausage, sausages;
- gelatin-containing dishes;
- packaged store juices;
- soy products;
- meat broths;
- fermented milk products with fillers, additives (muesli, fruits).

In addition, the risk of pancreatitis or indigestion increases. It is possible to eliminate the likelihood of these problems occurring by following a five-week program that provides the correct way out of the “scuffle”. The proposed diet should be taken as the basis of the daily menu.
Weekend Protasov Diet
Replace half of the fermented milk products consumed during the previous 7 days with non-fat analogues, add 15 milliliters of vegetable oil to the diet. The daily intake of fats is 30 - 35 grams. The sixth week menu can be supplemented with olives or nuts (up to 50 grams), proportionally reducing the amount of oil consumed. You can determine the fat content of foods and create a diet by using special tables in the "about diet" section on Kim Protasov's official website;
Replace two green apples with other fruits: plums, unsweetened pears, oranges. Under the ban - dates, mangoes, bananas, persimmons. The menu of the previous week supplemented with 100 grams of oatmeal;
Enrich the "previous" diet with dried fruits (prunes, dried apricots, figs) - 150 grams;
Add boiled vegetables to the menu: beets, carrots, potatoes, pumpkin. Replace half of the dairy products with lean meat (chicken, turkey, rabbit, veal) or low-fat fish (pollock, hake, perch, cod);
In the last 7 days of leaving the diet, systematically reduce the number of dietary products, replace them with the usual dishes that contain fats and carbohydrates. In the tenth week, it is allowed to eat "light" broths.
Reviews of dietitians (Natalya Kravtsova, Galina Aniseni, Kim Protasov) and weight loss indicate more lasting results if, at the end of the diet, refrain from eating rice, pasta, bakery and confectionery products for a month.
Kim Protasov's diet is a gentle weight loss technique that helps to lose 7-10 kilograms of excess weight in 5 weeks, while maintaining the relief on the body. In addition, a special diet allows you to cleanse the body of toxins and normalize metabolism. This is evidenced by the photos before and after losing weight of people, presented on the official website of the nutritionist.
If, with careful observance of all the rules, the technique does not bring the desired effect, it is worth checking the correctness of its implementation.
Common mistakes "according to - Protasov"
- Cutting your daily diet to 300 to 400 calories. Minimum food intake during the first stage leads to weight loss up to 6 kilograms. However, after the termination of the diet, there is a return of lost kilograms. This is evidenced by the reviews and results of people who have lost weight and the author of the method, Kim Protasov.
- Refusal of breakfast. Skipping a morning meal in 90% of cases leads to overeating at lunch and pancreatic dysfunction.
- Unaccounted meals. The calorie content of the daily diet is important to calculate taking into account even minor snacks.
- Binge eating. This is due to the fact that the allowed low-calorie foods, as a result, often a desire to increase the portion of the dish to saturate the body.
- Refusal of snacks. If every 4 hours you don’t eat food, then the body, going into the "fasting mode", reduces protein synthesis and slows down the metabolism. Protein products (raw nuts, cottage cheese, yogurt) are the best option for additional meals.
- Calorie counting "on the go." If you do not determine the energy value of the daily diet in advance, the risk of consuming "excess" food doubles.
- Excessive consumption of feta cheese. Salt retaining water in the tissues causes edema, as a result of which the weight does not decrease.
- Lack of physical activity. To lose 1 kilogram of weight, you need to burn 7500 calories more than a person ate.
- The use of sweet curds, glazed or processed cheeses, dairy products with a long shelf life (10 -14 days). In the composition of these products there are sugars, starches, unnatural additives that help slow down weight loss.
- Violation of the drinking regime. Inadequate water consumption leads to a slowdown in metabolism, and, as a result, to stop weight loss.
- Heat treatment of food. The diet of Dr. Protasov involves the use of raw vegetables. There are baked products, especially at the first stage, it is recommended extremely rarely - a maximum of 1 time in 5 days.
- Eating exclusively dairy products. Deficiency of complex carbohydrates in the daily diet leads to a slowdown in fat metabolism and the formation of ketone bodies that provoke intoxication of the body.
Compliance with the fundamental rules of the diet, correcting mistakes made - a guarantee of quick and effective weight loss.
