Michel Montignac (1944 – August 22, 2010) was a French diet developer who originally created the Montignac diet to help himself lose weight, which he based on research that focuses on the glycemic index of foods, which affects the amount of glucose delivered to the blood after eating. The diet, which distinguishes between good and bad carbohydrates, became the basis for best-selling books and a chain of restaurants and stores promoting his diet regimen and was one of the theoretical predecessors of the South Beach Diet.

Born in Angoulême, France in 1944, Montignac had a family history of obesity, with his father weighing 265 pounds (120 kg). He studied political science and worked as a human resources manager, ultimately working as the personnel manager in the 1970s for the European subsidiary of Abbott Laboratories, an American pharmaceutical firm. Using the research materials available to him there, and despite the lack of any formal medical training, he sought a way to counteract the effects of the daily business lunches he ate and came to the determination that the issue in weight loss was not how much you ate but what you consumed. By dividing carbohydrates into two categories, good (including beans, leaf vegetables, lentils, whole grain wheat products, wild rice and dark chocolate) and bad (such as corn, potatoes, refined flour, white bread and white rice), Montignac’s research led him to conclude that eating bad carbs, those with a high glycemic index, raises the levels of glucose in the blood and results in weight gain by coaxing the pancreas to generate insulin, which ultimately leads to the conversion of excess glucose into body fat. In 1993 he told The New York Times that “all traditional methods of dieting have amounted to a myth as big as Communism, and like Communism, they are destined to collapse”. He tested the diet on himself and lost 30 pounds (14 kg) in three months.

Building on his own experiences and research, Montignac proposed that trying to lose weight by reducing caloric consumption was a “scientific swindle” and that weight could be controlled by monitoring and selecting the foods one ate. Montignac’s diet was based on the idea that reducing calories in ones diet triggers a “survival instinct” that causes the body to store fat after losing pounds early in the diet. He self-published the book Dine Out and Lose Weight in 1986 aimed at business people who eat out often as part of their work and sold more than 500,000 copies. By the early 1990s, Montingac was opening a series of diet stores and restaurants that sold such items as beef, cheese, chocolate bars, foie gras that had been traditionally viewed as “symbols of ruinous hedonism” but that were promoted as part of Montingac’s diet method. His 1987 book Je Mange Donc Je Maigris (translated in English as Eat Yourself Slim … and Stay Slim!) was aimed at the general public and had reached sales of 16 million copies in 40 countries by 2005.

A resident of Juvigny, Haute-Savoie, Montignac died of prostate cancer at age 66 on August 22, 2010, at a clinic in Annemasse. He was survived by his daughter Sybille, a dietician.

Michel Montignac – famous throughout the worldA nutritionist, famous for the fact that he came up with and developed his own program of losing weight. The basis of his diet is not the control of calories consumed, but the glycemic index of products. Michel believed that food that has a high GI, and therefore very harmful to human health, contributes to the deposition of fat, therefore, the basis of nutrition should be products with a minimum GI, i.e. Most useful for the body.

The most harmful products:

  • fried potatoes;
  • White bread;
  • carrot;
  • honey;
  • corn;
  • sugar;
  • White rice;
  • milk chocolate;
  • butter;
  • pasta;
  • Bananas;
  • Flour products.

Healthy foods:

  • Soybeans;
  • lemon;
  • Mushrooms;
  • Green vegetables;
  • bitter chocolate;
  • fruit;
  • a fish;
  • Eggs;
  • dairy;
  • seafood.

Michel Montignac’s diet is fairly easy and peacefulIs transferred, not being a serious test for those who want to lose weight. In the process of losing weight, you will not be irritated, as it happens with other diets, on the contrary you will feel a rush of strength and vivacity.

This program consists of two phases. The first stage – direct weight loss and body cleansing. The second stage is the preservation and maintenance of the results of the first phase.

1 phase of the Montignac diet

At the first stage of the Mantignac diet, you canUse only foods with GI less than 50 in food. Another important condition in this phase is the separate consumption of lipids and carbohydrates, i.e. Meat, eggs, vegetable oil.

To eat food, Michelle recommends three times a day at the same time. Breakfast should be done sufficiently satisfying, lunch is average, and dinner is as easy as possible and, of course, not late.

Consider the sample menu of the Montignac diet at the 1st stage.

Breakfast:

  • Yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese;
  • A slice of rye bread;
  • Any fruit, except bananas.

Lunch:

  • omelette;
  • cheese;
  • ham.

Dinner:

  • Meat or fish soup;
  • Salad of green vegetables;
  • cheese.

Dinner:

  • skim cheese;
  • vegetable salad.

According to numerous studies, the dietMontignac is ideal for losing weight, because without using any special effort you can easily drop unwanted pounds. The main thing here is patience, tk. Depending on how many kilograms you want to discard, this process can take several months.

2 phase of the Montignac diet

The second stage should be started only then,When on the first you have achieved the desired result, i.e. When your weight has decreased, and well-being has improved noticeably. But here to adhere to the rules of the second phase follows a lifetime. Strict restrictions are not here, so you can use those foods whose glycemic index is more than 50, but it is better to combine them with food rich in fiber, for example, with apple, pepper, beans, etc. Well, sugar still have to be completely excluded from the diet, or use instead fructose or sugar substitutes.

Advantages of the Montignac diet

The Montignac diet is recognized as the most popular, effective and healthy slimming program because:

  1. The metabolic process is normalized and, as a consequence, weight stabilizes.
  2. Easy enough to tolerate.
  3. There are no limits to salt intake.
  4. Three meals a day.
  5. Reduces the likelihood of cardiovascular disease, hypertension.

Michelle wrote many works on the topic of correctNutrition and weight loss. More details about the diet for Montignac you can learn from his books, which even during his life became bestsellers and sold millions of copies around the world.
