Thonon diet follows the principle of low calorie and high proteins in the diet. This means the low calories will come only from proteins and there will be limited access to carbohydrates and fats in the diet. If you are worrying about your muscle mass then dont worry, proteins will not let your muscles melt. This diet works on only 600-800 calories per day.

This diet plan works for 14 days where you need to be strictly on a high protein routine without skipping any guidelines. At the end of 14 days, you can loose upto 10 kgs if you are following the routine. This diet works on reducing your visceral fat which is perhaps the most dangerous fat in the body. Visceral fat is basically the fat surrounding your belly which can increase the cardiovascular risk.

Normally diets be in the yo-yo phase where you loose weight and get off the diet to gain it back!

None of the diets can be carried on for a longer time but thonon diet promises to have stabilisation phase after the diet is done.

Since carbohydrates in the diet is limited, your body will start using fats to give you energy eventually you will reach a point where your body will be in ketosis.
