How do you lose your oxygen or O2 diet?
In the O2 diet, it does not count calories, as in other weight loss regimes, but ORAC points (the ability of a product to absorb free radicals). The ORAC points system reflects the antioxidant capacity of different types of foods.
Antioxidants are nutritional substances that protect the body from free radicals and prevent the occurrence of serious diseases, such as cancer or heart disease.
Glassman is of the opinion that if you focus your daily menu only on foods with high antioxidant content (with many ORAC points), not only that you lose weight, but feel good, you are more energetic and beautiful every day.
There are no less than 5 variants of the O2 diet created for various purposes:
1. Basic oxygen diet
2. Oxygen diet for rapid loss of fat layers
3. Oxygen diet for revitalization
4. Diet to increase body immunity
5. Diet with oxygen for muscle toning.
The nutritional programs and the necessary indications for each of the 5 diets can be found in the author's book, "The O2 Diet".

In the oxygen diet, unlimited consumption of vegetables is allowed, but attention should be paid to daily portions of meat, fruit or whole grains. It is recommended to measure the eggs, bread, extra virgin olive oil or coffee.
