Overweighthas become one of the major health problems worldwide. In our society, this type of problem begins to appear during the first years of life, increasing in middle-aged people, constituting an important cardiovascular risk factor, causing mobilityproblems and even social discrimination.
For this reason, we have created personalized plans to treat this disease. Initially, we perform acompletestudyof the patient.: personal and family medical history, assessment of health and nutritional status through a blood test and impediancytometry (measurement of the proportions of fat mass, muscle mass and water through a device known as impediancytometer, which also allows us to know the basal metabolism of the patient), assessment of anthropometric measurements (weight, height, abdominal circumference, pectoral and hip circumference) and study of eating habits.

Once all these data have been evaluated, it is time to promote lifestyle changes, developing a personalized regimen for each patient.
People who decide to embark on the difficult path of losing weight and start dieting, have at their disposal alternatives that guarantee spectacular and visible results in a short time.
At Unidad de Medicina Estética we work with the well-known Pronokal diet. We explain what it consists of:
The Pronokal diet is based mainly on the elimination of sugar and carbohydrates from our daily diet by consuming foods rich in protein of high biological value, mainly products marketed by Pronokal. This is a diet that requiresstrict medical controlfrom the beginning, as it subjects our metabolism to severe restrictions.
But how does it work? The idea behind this diet is that our body needs energy to function and the first fuel it tries to burn is the sugars in the blood, if there is no glucose then it uses carbohydrates and if there is no glucose then it starts burning fat. Therefore, both are limited.
The Pronokal diet consists of 5 phases that must be strictly followed. The first phase seeks to put the body into a state of ketosis, a situation that occurs when the body has no sugar available and forces the liver to metabolize fats. In the first phase (which lasts for a period of time to be established according to the total number of kilos to be lost) only certain vegetables and 5 Pronokal foods are allowed. In successive phases, other foods are introduced to add variety to the diet.
