Lemme diet: what it is

The diet, invented by the pharmacist Alberico Lemme, has also become famous as the “spaghetti diet for breakfast” because it recommends consuming carbohydrates only in the very first part of the day. Among the various foods, the most banned ones are salt, because it increases the risk of hypertension, and sugar because it stimulates insulin, a hormone that increases body fat.
