Sounds promising so far.
Proposed by a French doctor who believes that it’s WHEN we eat, as much as WHAT we eat that makes us either chubby or slim, first and foremost it’s an idea of a correct grocerie schedule which stubled on a positive and affirmative approval of many nutritionists. Unlike the hard and restrictive diets, the chrono diet isn’t demanding that you renounce yourself of food and special food types, all we have to do is to correctly combine groceries in the given time periods.

The interesting thing about this diet is that we are allowed to to eat candies, which represents a bright and fun fact that motivates us to proceed on with it.

Thanks to that, the chrono diet got a good reputation and placed itself on the peak of very popular weight loss diets.

With it you don’t suffer from hunger during the day, and the risk of falling into a state of hypoglycemia.

It is important to have three meals and between them should be a gap of approximately five hours to regulate blood sugar and insulin levels in the body. With chrono diet recommended interval training, and the best combination of fast and slow walk. Trained in the morning or during the day, not at night.

Skipping meals is forbidden, especially dinner, which is in the other diets often avoid.

Chrono diet is fast becoming popular because it does not take into account the calorie intake. Skinny gradually, and the pounds are not coming back if you continue to follow the easy rules.

The menu to the chrono diet:

Breakfast

The first meal of the day should be finished by 9 a.m. at the latest, and you can eat everything you want. A plentiful intake of carbonhydrates is recommended as well as the intake of animal source food.
For instance: bread, ham, corn bread, pie, pizza, yogurt, butte and many other. Enjoy in a nice and hearty breakfast. Avoid eating fruits in your breakfast, and until your lunch you should avoid eating anything at all.
The best time for lunch in this diet is from  1 till 3 p.m. The chrono diet also higly suggests that you have your breakfast every day and not to skip it because it represents the most important meal of the day.

Lunch

Consume protein rich groceries- of animal and plant origins. As for meat the following are suggested: beef steaks, turkey, fish with green beans or salad (without bread). Avoid carbonhydrates and proteins in a mutual combination.

An afternoon snack is also included in the chrono diet menu and best to be consumed from 5 to 7 p.m. Snacks should include plant fat: nuts, peanut butter, olives, honey, dark chocolate ( to 30 grams) or some season fruits.

Dinner

The lightest meal of the day should be consumed two hours before going to bed, a mix of salad and lean meat is suggested, best would be a tuna salad. But if you don’t feel hungry you skip that meal.
The point is to take in proteins and salads (lean meat, tuna..) two hours before going to sleep. Thats the lightest meal during the day in which you avoid the intake of candy, or if you are still well fed from the previous meals you can skip this one completely.

If you need to lose more weight

Introduced restrictions. In the restricted period completely ejected snacks, including fruit, because a lot of sugar. Also from the diet temporarily evicted and all starchy vegetables, and carbs for lunch.

Forbiden Groceries

You should be eating food that is native to your province and that is fresh. As we mentioned earlier it is best to consume the meals always in the same given time and that the time between them should atleast be 4 hours long, so we can calm the activity of our pancreas.
Avoid drinking carbonated drinks, which contain sugar and artificial sweeteners. Quick unhealthy snacks are forbidden especially between meals. Fruits and dry fruits are only allowed between 4 and 6 p.m. (winter period) or 5 to 7 p.m (summer period).

Pasta isn’t allowed for consumption at late hours. Cow milk is hard to digest, and the chrono dietexcludes it completely. It can only be used as a ingredient in cooked meals but too often, while cheese and yogurt are allowed.
Margarine, herbal cheeses, herbal sour cream and bakery products, all which contain so called trans fats also aren’t allowed in the chrono diet.
