Dietary restriction, whats that?
Persistently approach guests for their dietary impediments on requesting to any event where food will be served. Someone with dietary impediments will pass on that they are veggie darlings or vegans and will envision that you should give a supper that meets their dietary needs is called dietary limitations.
Talking about my self, My name is Manav Gaba, I am a 19 years old male weighing 70 kg with a height of 5 feet 7 inches.
Why i shared my profile, the reason is that i believe its better for you to know about me before you get to know about my diet and preferences.
i am currently following Atkins diet
so what basically is Atkins diet?
The Atkins diet is a low-carbohydrate fad diet devised by Robert Atkins. The diet is marketed with questionable claims that carbohydrate restriction is critical to weight loss. There is no good evidence of the diet’s effectiveness in achieving durable weight loss and it may increase the risk of heart disease.
The Atkins diet is a kind of low-carbohydrate fad diet.Fructose (for example, as found in many industrial sweeteners) has four calories per gram but has a very low glycemic index and does not cause insulin production, probably because β cells have low levels of GLUT5. Leptin, an appetite-regulating hormone, is not triggered following consumption of fructose. This may for some create an unsatisfying feeling after consumption which might promote binge behavior that culminates in an increased blood triglyceride level arising from fructose conversion by the liver.
Preferred foods in all categories are whole, unprocessed foods with a low glycemic index, although restrictions for low glycemic carbohydrates (black rice, vegetables, etc.) are the same as those for high glycemic carbohydrates (sugar, white bread). Atkins Nutritional, the company formed to market foods that work with the diet, recommends that no more than 20% of calories eaten while on the diet come from saturated fat.
The Atkins diet gained widespread popularity in 2003 and 2004. At the height of its popularity one in eleven North American adults claimed to be on a low-carb diet such as Atkins. This large following was blamed for large declines in the sales of carbohydrate-heavy foods like pasta and rice: sales were down 8.2 and 4.6 percent, respectively, in 2003. The diet’s success was even blamed for a decline in Krispy Kreme sales. Trying to capitalize on the “low-carb craze”, many companies released special product lines that were low in carbohydrates.
Around that time, the percentage of adults on the diet declined to two percent and sales of Atkins brand products fell steeply in the second half of 2004.

My views on the Atkins diet-
I would like to say that this diet is best among all others as i enjoyed the food a lot and i would be recommending this diet to all of the viewers of my blog.
Allergens- An allergen is a type of antigen that produces an abnormally vigorous immune response in which the immune system fights off a perceived threat that would otherwise be harmless to the body. Such reactions are called allergies.
In technical terms, an allergen is an antigen that is capable of stimulating a type-I hypersensitivity reaction in atopic individuals through Immunoglobulin E (IgE) responses. Most humans mount significant Immunoglobulin E responses only as a defense against parasitic infections. However, some individuals may respond to many common environmental antigens. This hereditary predisposition is called atopy. In atopic individuals, non-parasitic antigens stimulate inappropriate IgE production, leading to type I hypersensitivity.
Sensitivities vary widely from one person (or from one animal) to another. A very broad range of substances can be allergens to sensitive individuals.
Talking about my allergies, i do not have any allergy from any food but for this assignment lets pretend that i have allergy from eggs so how would i be substituting the allergen?
Egg allergy is an immune hypersensitivity to proteins found in chicken eggs, and possibly goose, duck, or turkey eggs. Symptoms can be either rapid or gradual in onset. The latter can take hours to days to appear.
Vinegar and Baking Soda If you need to replace egg for a fluffier recipe, like pancakes or even waffles, mix together one teaspoon of baking soda with one tablespoon of white vinegar. It won’t be acidic or bitter when you cook it, even though it sounds like it should be part of an elementary school experiment.
would i like to continue my choice-
Yes i would like to continue my choice of following this diet and as i said before i will be recommending this diet to all my blog viewers.
Thank you 🙂
