The simplicity and effectiveness of this diet are what made people believe in the Swedish Diet.
I’m not so sure yet why it’s called the Swedish food, but I will go on with the trending flow.
It’s nothing different that people struggle and fight to shed their extra pounds. Their big appetite and quitting mentality made them fail with every diet they try.
According to those who tried this new diet, it lets you focus on proteins and fats and decrease the intake of carbohydrates. It’s something similar to the protein diet.
One of the best things about this diet is that you can forget about some calories and the hours you can consume them.
“It might sound too good to be true, but the combination of essential vitamins and amino acids provided by the diet enhances the metabolism while suppressing the appetite. The Swedish Diet lets you eat as much as you want while the pounds melt off.”

And that’s not all.
The Swedish diet boosts your metabolism, as well. Plus, it has the exclusive power to improve your digestion and improve your overall health.
Dr. Malcolm Kendrick says that the low carb/high fat diets raise HDL cholesterol. (A.K.A. the good cholesterol).
