• First of all, let's start with what Blooness isn't. It's not a low-calorie diet or a medicated feeding program. Blooness is a diet low in carbohydrates, rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats), rich in quality protein (fish, white meat, etc...), and rich in ingredients found in the blue zones, those areas where life expectancy is at an all time high, and where diseases of civilization (diabetes, obesity, cancers) have a very low prevalence.

  • Neither are the processed products and other carbohydrate bombs that the trade sells us all the time. You can try it, and if it doesn't work for you, don't prolong the experience.

  • Give your body time to adjust, especially if you are trying to reduce your carbohydrate intake as much as possible as part of this diet. In which case your body will synthesize ketoses. To do this, you must give your body time to "change fuel".

  • No. The point of Blooness meals is to eat mostly healthy ingredients, low in carbohydrates, rich in good quality fat and protein, and rich in vegetables such as asparagus, avocado, broccoli, cauliflower, olives, etc... This doesn't stop you from eating junk food or croissants when you feel like it, from time to time. It's up to you to place the cursor. However, Blooness food is still a fun and enjoyable food. It is not a low-calorie diet, far from it.

  • Blooness is a flexitarian food. However, you can adapt it to be vegetarian. There is a chapter on the concept of complete proteins.

  • The Blooness diet is not a diet, but a way of life. However, by drastically reducing the intake of carbohydrates, especially bad carbohydrates, and enjoying a substantial intake of quality fat and protein, you are likely to create less fat reserves, since contrary to popular belief, too much carbohydrate intake - as is the case in today's common diet in the West - will either lead to weight gain or to metabolic problems in the long run.

  • The distribution of macronutrients is not set in stone, and with a Blooness diet it is quite possible to adjust this distribution. To do this, the general logic (decrease carbohydrates, increase fat, maintain protein) must be applied, taking care to keep a certain level of calories provided by carbohydrates, especially in the case of sport. A chapter in the guide is devoted to this.
