Top 5 summer diets: wellness and weight loss

summer diet

Summer is coming, we are going to find the beautiful beaches, the swimming pools, the beautiful landscapes... For some and some, these decorations are synonymous with swimsuits, silhouettes, but also to show up with extra pounds.

First of all, we remind you that losing weight before summer is not a necessity. It is an approach that accompanies all those who feel better in a more refined body than the rest of the year.

To support these people, D-LAB gives you all its advice and gives you its top 5 diets to lose weight before summer.

Why a diet? By diet, we mean the nutritional balance that suits you. As you know, all our slimming cures must be accompanied by a rebalancing of food and regular physical activity.

Food rebalancing can be different depending on each person's goals and lifestyles.

Forget Weight Watchers diets, cabbage soup or the high protein diet, here are 5 diets that will help you:


The Mediterranean diet for those aiming for good cardiovascular health and to burn fat effortlessly:

This diet is characteristic of the diet of the populations of the Mediterranean basin. The American Ancel Keys has shown that populations around the Mediterranean have good cardiovascular health although 40% of calories are provided by fat. I draw your attention to this point, to remind you that regarding fats, it is only a question of “How to choose them well?” and not “How to ban them?”. Good fats are our friends! It is also thanks to them that we can synthesize the right hormones. A good hormonal balance allows the metabolism to work well and therefore to be able to lose weight and not be blocked.

To practice this diet, you must:

Vegetables at every meal! Raw or cooked, fill half the plate. Regarding starches, they should not be neglected because they are our first source of energy. They must fill a quarter of our plate.

Choose olive oil , the star of this diet, rather than butter, which is bad for your health.

On the protein side, we focus on seafood, we can eat white meat but without abuse, and for red meat, it's maximum once a week . Dairy products: in moderation, and red wine is tolerated at the rate of one glass per meal :)

The goal of this diet is to completely avoid prepared, industrial, overly salty, ultra-processed meals, refined cereals, which are the enemies of your weight loss.

The Glycemic Index Diet:

The goal of this diet is to play on satiety to lose weight. The Glycemic Index of a food is a number indicating the greater or lesser capacity of this food to raise your blood sugar quickly. The lower the GI, the slower digestion will be and the more stable our blood sugar will be. Thus, satiety is promoted, and sweet cravings as well as hypoglycaemia encouraging eating are controlled and reduced: weight loss assured.

Conversely, the higher the GI, the more you disrupt your blood sugar and your weight loss/regain.

A low GI is less than 55. Obviously, we cannot know or have fun looking for the glycemic index of all foods, on the other hand there are some tips to know to lead your diet in the direction of this diet :

  • The cooking method strongly influences the GI. The more you cook a food, the higher the cooking temperatures etc., the higher the GI will rise. For example, for pasta, prefer hard cooking to al dente rather than melting. Think of legumes, which are very interesting!
  • The refining of the food : prefer raw or dark foods than white flours or processed foods.
  • The amount of fiber in food
  • Mix the foods: the more you vary the families of foods together, the lower the GI.

This diet is important, even if you don't necessarily want to lose weight, but only to regulate your appetite .

The gut microbiota diet:

We no longer hide it from you, the microbiota is at the heart of our form. To be able to dislodge the extra pounds, you have to take care of this living micro-world. If our intestinal flora is well balanced, and it contains enough good bacteria, then we can digest the bolus normally and efficiently. Otherwise, we balloon and stockpile, because our digestion is impaired and the food ferments.

How to take care of your intestinal microbiota? First, we do a course of probiotics over two or three months to repopulate the entire intestine with Absolu Probiopure .

This formula developed by the D-LAB NUTRICOSMETICS team contains 5 strains of lactic ferments closest to those of our intestines. It rebalances and promotes digestive comfort. It can be supplemented with the Enzymatic Slimming Complex , containing digestive enzymes, to digest more quickly and transform food into energy and avoid storing it.

The chrononutrition diet:

Chrononutrition is the fact of eating according to the hours of the day. It is a question of consuming foods at the time of the day when they are most useful for satisfying the body's energy needs. Concretely, we eat a bit of everything but at specific times of the day.

This is a very interesting diet that has proven itself on overweight people.

How to apply it? :

In the morning, you have to eat fat , to achieve satiety, and especially no sugar. This will prevent cravings and morning fatigue.

Lunch will be the largest meal in terms of quantity but without fat: proteins and starches .

If you are hungry in the afternoon: take a sweet snack, this is the period when the body best assimilates sugars.

Finally, for dinner, it must be as light as possible according to this diet, fish or white meat, and a few vegetables.


Simple food rebalancing:

The simplest and most recommended for our cures: food rebalancing . Sometimes you don't have to look far to lose weight: changing two or three bad eating habits is enough to lose the last extra pounds.

We eat when we are hungry, we structure our meals over the day, avoiding snacking between; we eat vegetables at every meal, we drink a lot of water, we don't take anything away, but we eat everything in small quantities and we don't feel guilty!

A “standard” meal would correspond to: half a plate of vegetables, a quarter of starches, and a quarter of proteins. We take a yogurt for dessert for the calcium intake, and we slightly reduce the usual quantities to lose weight.

Of course, all these diets can be accompanied by a fat-burning supplement to increase weight loss and make it sustainable.
