The full-fledged basic diet also includes intensive dietetic measures such as therapeutic fasting or dietary relief.

  • Preferred foods: vegetables and fruit, potatoes, wholemeal products, legumes, dairy products, fresh vegetarian food. Meat, fish and eggs in small quantities. The amount of food consumed should be estimated individually.
  • Avoidance of the following foods: with additives, irradiated or genetically modified, preference for regional or seasonal foods

Nutritional energy: The average energy requirement of an adult person is about 2,000 Kcal/day. When adjusting to the basic diet, however, individual requirements and daily activity (pal values) should be taken into account. During a full-fledged basic diet, a blanket reduction in calorie intake to 1,000 Kcal/day is not advisable, as this is always accompanied by a severe restriction of carbohydrate-rich products such as fruit, vegetables and wholemeal products (reduced intake of nutrients and fibre).
A strong feeling of hunger and a reduced quality of life would result in a break in the reduction diet. On the other hand, a reduction in dietary fat with a constant food intake and high nutrient density is recommended.
