The LeDiet method is based on an individual dietary programme respecting the following necessities:
- Preserves capital health
- Maintains the pleasure of eating
- Allows the favourite foods and meals of each individual.
- Conserves family meals and those with friends.
- Avoids any unnecessary calorie restriction but adapts for each individual the ideal calorie level to obtain the weight objective.
-Helps daily each candidate to slim
The LeDiet method was initiated by Professor Apfelbaum and developed by Doctor Benhetrit's teams at the Clinique du Poids.
In 1973 Professor Apfelbaum created the positive food concept:
- A diet mustn't be a list of restrictions, but a group of foods adapted to the dietary habits of each individual.
- Nutritional balance is one of the key factors to success of long-term diets.
The work of Professor Apfelbaum has a worldwide reputation, particularly in the domain of obesity and cholesterol. It has been the subject of numerous international publications in a large number of prestigious medical journals.
In 1986 Professor Apfelbaum and Doctor Benchetrit developed the LeDiet method. Their two teams worked together to create the concept of positive food and high quality computer technology.
