Science behind the rich protein only diet for weight loss

To understand this concept we need to understand the role of insulin and glucagon in our body. Both are secreted by pancreas. Both work in opposite direction. The insulin reduces the sugar level in the blood if it increases to a threshold. The glucagon increases the blood sugar level if it reduces to a threshold.
There are three phases in the digestion process. 1) cephalic phase 2) absorptive phase 3) fasting phase. The cephalic phase starts from the sight of food or from the thinking of food and completed before the absorption take place. The absorptive phase starts after the digestion carried out and the energies are about to absorb in the body. This phase will end either by placing the energy in the blood or by storing the energy in body. The fasting phase starts when the stored energy such as fat, glycogen and protein are about to convert back to usable energy.
The insulin secreted in the cephalic phase and adaptive phase. The glucagon secreted in the fasting phase.
When we consume only protein, we are missing carbohydrate in the diet and consequently the sugar level in the blood sugar reduces and reaches to lower threshold. The glucagon is secreted and converts the stored energy to sugar to increase the blood sugar level. If we continue on rich protein only diet, the glucagon’s activity will be high and we loss the weight slowly.

Side effect of medicineless treatment

People claim only the treatment with the medicine will have the side effect. But it is fallacy. To understand this we need to understand something about the germs.
As some alternative system proposed, the germs are attracted towards their food(waste for human) in our body. By cleaning the morbid matter, the germs will go away. These are all go well if we able to remove the morbid matter from our body immediately. But the fact is it will take time to remove the morbid matter. During the period, there is a possibility of germs to disturb our regular activity. This can be illustrated with the following example.
Assume the mosquito is the germ. The morbid matter is the small dirty ponds around our area. The reason for arrival of mosquito is due to the dirty environment. After arrival, it will disturb all the living organism by biting the living organism. We can eliminate the mosquito by two methods. 1) killing the mosquito 2) removing the morbid matter around the area. The first method is followed by the Allopathic medical system. The second method is followed by many alternative medical systems.
It will take time to remove the morbid matter. Due to the time delay in the removal of morbid matter, we face the disturbance from the germs. This we can say as the side effect of the medicine less treatment.
