Almost every single diet works by temporarily putting your body into a state of ketosis. In this state your body burns fat for energy, instead of burning carbs and protein. But, according to Joel Marion, personal trainer and certified sports nutritionist or CISSN, these diets ultimately fail because they allow too many carbs to be reintroduced, which flip your body’s source of energy from fat…back to carbs.
By limiting your carbs and protein intake, you can actually Force your body into a state of “ketosis”. In this state, your body “learns” how to burn fat for fuel⛽. Almost every diet out there relies on ketosis for fat loss.
There are other Ketogenic Diets that advice a 14 day ‘targeted’ Ketogenic Diet, where you can burn fat EVEN faster, while still eating carbs, sizable portions of protein and even enjoying alcohol.
Although here, we are re-discovering the long lost 1924 French Diet Secret that can possibly help you look younger, live longer and burn more belly fat in only 14 days!

The French Diet can be summed up in one sentence: “eat small portions of high-quality foods less often.”!
“Forget low-fat, low-carb, low-taste, and low-calorie – the French diet is full of flavour and high in satisfaction. Eating la maniere Francaise (the French way) can keep you slim and healthy.”

This has nothing to do with the Adkin’s Diet and it’s not the traditional Ketogenic Diet.
