The Scandinavian Diet

Steady, stable and healthy weight reduction with an easy, powerful and natrual diet

The less fat we eat, the fatter we seem to get. Could the 'experts' be mistaken when they scare us from eating fat?

An increasing amount of research shows that it is not dangerous to increase the amount of protein and fat in your diet. It is increasingly accepted that increased consumption of fats and cholesterol-rich foods like eggs do not lead to coronary heart disease.

If you follow the Scandinavian Diet (Low Carbodhydrate - High Fat) you can expect to lose 1 - 2lbs per week, depending on how few carbohydrates you eat.
