A weight loss diet very popular in Europe in the 1990’s, Montignac diet was formulated by Michel Montignac. Food is divided into four categories namely carbohydrates, lipids including fats and meat, carbohydrate-lipid including nuts and organ meats and fibers including whole grains and vegetables.
Carbohydrates with high Glycemic index are termed as bad carbohydrates and this diet recommends that these bad carbohydrates should not be consumed with lipids. This combination will encourage excess fat in food to be stored in the body as excess body fat.
On the whole this diet aims at serving as a nutritional concept focusing on people who wish to lose weight efficiently. This diet also helps in controlling diseases such as diabetes and heart problems. The method aims at changing the way people - choosing the right food combination to eat and not in limiting what they eat.
