Yes, we know that it may sound logical but having a healthy diet is essential in order to lose the kilos taken during Christmas. Au revoir le foie-gras, bonjour vegetables. Better than a diet, people cannot stop talking about this rebalancing dietary. Since we are good people, at Carla Bikini’s, we believe you should try this proven method that has been elected best diet of the year* for 6 years straight, the DASH diet. Invented by researchers in order to reduce blood pressure, it had been proven that you could also lose weight thanks to that diet. It is also adapted for everybody. What’s better than that to prepare your body for your swimwear of this summer?

What is the DASH diet anyway?

Like the Mediterranean diet, it consists of eating more fruits and vegetables, a little less dairy and cereals products and favorize poultry/fish meat rather than red meat. Furthermore, greasy and sugary food are really limited. There are 3 energetics levels (numbers of kcal consumed per day):

  • 1600 kcal
  • 2000 kcal
  • 2600 kcal

Here’s a small gift, although It’s not Christmas anymore, an easy and fast DASH recipe!
