Who is this doctor, Kovalkov?
To date, this famous Russian nutritionist is one of the most sought after and successful. But it was not always so, because only ten years ago he was a physician and suffered from excess weight. Such a dull state led him to the need to create his own food system, which allowed him to say goodbye to 50 kilograms in just six months. Successful experience allowed the clinic to open and release two books in which he outlined his views and the basis of the diet.
What is the difference from other diets?
First of all, Kovalkov's diet is the complete opposite of modern views. The doctor severely criticizes all sorts of mono diets and does not at all admit sharp restrictions. He believes that it is strictly forbidden to adhere to strict restrictions, since in any case they will be interrupted by gluttony. All this leads not only to a rapid set of weight, but also to mental disorders.
In the end, in order to successfully lose weight without harm, you must abandon any tight restrictions and, first of all, it is important to understand the cause of your deplorable state. Try to answer yourself: "Why am I getting better?". Starting from your answer and realizing responsibility for your life, you can go forward to the ideal.
The technique of Dr. Kovalkov has many advantages. First of all, it is calmly transferred, both on a physical and psychological level. You do not need to count calories all the time, it's quite high-grade, and the main thing is to eat well. In addition, the Kovalkov system assumes that you can choose your own food and make your own menu. You will not starve, but should not overeat. Food is absolutely enough for a comfortable life.
