If the “chocolate and red wine” marketing argument hits the nail on the head with foodies, the Sift Food Diet remains a low-calorie diet, which can be considered restrictive even if it is obviously not sold as such. Ultra-targeted on certain foods, it does not bet on variety, yet essential for optimal intake of vitamins and minerals and… to avoid frustration. Not to mention that chocolate, red wine and olive oil have never been prohibited in many classic diets. On the contrary, they participate, in particular, in the famous Mediterranean diet, considered one of the best diets in the world for the line and health.
