Protein needs of the body

In 1972, George L. Blackburn, MD, PhD from Harvard Medical School, discovered the body's protein requirement (ranging from 1.2 to 1.5 grams per kilogram of weight). Based on this discovery, the first normoprotein diet was developed, enabling the reduction of adipose tissue while maintaining the delicate and essential balance of the organism, ensuring the complete preservation of muscle mass.

7 country study

In 1986, led by Ancel B. Keys, the groundbreaking nutritional research known as the Seven Countries Study took place. The study demonstrated the beneficial effects of the Mediterranean diet (A. Keys, A. Menotti, M.J. Karvonen et al., "Diet and 15-year mortality in a seven-country study," Am. J. Epidemiol 124 (6), December 1986).

Mass clinical practice

In 2009, Dr. Giuseppe Castaldo, the director of the clinical nutrition department at the "San Giuseppe Moscati" hospital in Avellino, Italy, conducted case studies on over 600 patients. He had been employing this diet on approximately 20,000 patients since the early 1990s.

EFSA recognizes vegetable fibres

In 2010, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) provided a scientific opinion stating that glucomannan contributes to weight loss when consumed in a daily dose of 3 grams along with an energy-restrictive diet.

The beginning of the Liposuction Diet™

Half a century elapsed from the pioneering research on amino acids to their implementation in dietary therapeutic practices. However, the birth of the Liposuction Diet™ occurred when these amino acids were combined with the Mediterranean diet and plant fibers.
