There is a specific basis around which an individual nutritional model is already standing since each organism has its own characteristics.

Guided by psychotypes and possible health problems, the Chenot identifies 5 types of people.

What is the essence of the technique? First of all, its primary goal is not to lose weight but to get rid of toxins.

According to Henri Chenot, the ageing process is directly related to the slagging of the body. The toxins that we have accumulated for many years come from unbalanced nutrition, environmental factors and lifestyle factors, which lead to energy and functional imbalances.

Therefore, the process of restoring health should begin with cleansing the body.

The methodology is based on European developments in the field of vital activity of the human body and the teachings of ancient Chinese medicine about the energy capabilities of a person.

The energy diet, developed by Henri Chenot, belongs to the category of fast diets and is based on the principles of the human body.

It is based on maintaining the correct balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, as well as avoiding high-calorie foods, due to which weight loss occurs.


• Fruit is recommended to be consumed before the main meal, not after it. Apples, pears, plums, oranges, tangerines, apricots, kiwi, strawberries, cherries, grapefruits and mangoes are especially useful.

• Reduce sugar to a minimum, replace salt with herbs and spices.

• The importance of meditation.

• Regular physical activity (light jogging, walking, exercise)

• Getting used to eat slow carbohydrates.

• The ideal period for the absorption of nutrients is from 12 to 20 hours.

• Every 7 years, the metabolism in the human body changes. So regularly review your diet and not only throw out everything that is not good for you but also reduce the overall amount of food you eat.

For 25 years, Pierre Dukan studied the eating habits of his patients and, step by step developed his own weight loss program. The technique gained its popularity with the publication of the book “The Dukan Diet“.

What is the essence of the technique?

Based on the ketogenic diet. What does it mean? The ketogenic diet (keto diet) focuses on a higher intake of fat and lower intake of carbohydrates.

When a person eats a reduced amount of carbohydrates, the body produces ketone bodies. These are small molecules that are energy sources that are produced by the liver. On a keto diet, the body learns to obtain energy mainly from fat, not carbohydrates.

When switching to a keto diet, you need to eliminate many high-carb foods from your diet. The success of the diet and, accordingly, the desired result depends on this.

However, it is worth paying attention to the safety of the process, since much depends on the ability of the pancreas to produce insulin.
