You can repeat the Tisanoreica® Diet, but it is important to allow at least 2/3 months between one protocol session and the next. You should always seek medical advice before repeating the session.

The Tisanoreica® Diet is a complete protocol that consists of using Decottopia® products in combination with Tisanoreica® Food Servings (PAT®) and regular, everyday foods. Thanks to the combination of these three elements, the Tisanoreica® Diet can truly be called a unique protocol.

No, the Tisanoreica® Diet can be defined as being normoproteic (containing a normal proportion of protein), hypoglycaemic (for combating hypoglycaemia) or hypocaloric (characterised by a low number of dietary calories). In fact, the body gets sufficient protein to maintain its normal nitrogen balance. The protein intake is always evaluated by a doctor.

Tisanoreica® products are available on the open market, so anyone is free to consume the Tisanoreica® brand's wholesome and delicious products. In particular, the Tisanoreica® Style Line, with its low glycaemic load, should be followed after the actual diet program to maintain the weight achieved by eating healthy, low-calorie products. However, before starting the Tisanoreica® weight loss diet you should seek your doctor's advice. Before buying Tisanoreica® products (from InTisanoreica Centres, Beauty Salons, Herbalists, Pharmacies, Health Food Stores and Fitness Centres) you can request advice from the doctors in the Tisanoreica® Study Centres by sending in a self-certification form, which could be followed up by blood tests. Regardless of whether or not you are given approval to start following the protocol, you will be given guidance on how to move forward in your quest to improve your general health.

Decottopia® is really the trump card of the Tisanoreica® Diet for its power to counteract the side effects of the ketone bodies produced (the process that takes place during the Intensive Phase of the diet). It is possible to mix several decottopiric extracts together by following a few simple rules: use no more than four different products and avoid products that have contrary effects or that have to be taken at different times. Decottopiric extracts will keep their organoleptic and medicinal properties for up to 30 days after opening if stored in a cool, dry place. Once diluted in water they should be consumed within 24 hours. In order for the products to keep their organoleptic properties, they should be kept at a temperature of between 10° and 14°C but some particular decoctions can also be drunk hot.

PAT® (Tisanoreica® Food Servings) is a unit to measure protein intake (equal to 19 grams of protein). The way you use them depends on the specific Tisanoreica® food product you buy. Powdered products should generally be diluted in water and mixed in the shaker, while the dose to be taken during the day may vary according to your needs.

Milk contains lactose, a simple sugar that is not compatible with the Intensive Phase. Tisanoreica® Diet drinks must therefore be diluted in water using the shaker.

Nothing. The difference is only in the type of dishes: in the kits the dishes are pre-selected and measured out according to the protocol being followed. Buying a kit, which contains all the products you need over the time frame in question, is just more convenient. On the other hand, buying products separately means you can choose more of the products you like the most.

Vegetables are definitely a food choice that can be combined with Tisanoreica® dishes. All vegetables are compatible with the Intensive Phase except for those that are yellow, orange, or red in colour, legumes (beans, peas, lentils, green beans, chickpeas, lupins, etc., and tubers (potatoes, Jerusalem artichokes, etc.) as they contain carbohydrates in variable quantities, but usually at higher levels than in white or green vegetables.

Milk contains lactose, a simple sugar that is not compatible with the Intensive Phase. Tisanoreica® Diet drinks must therefore be diluted in water using the shaker.

We recommend that you follow the "Preparation instructions" on the package.

Some products in the Tisanoreica® Style range can be used in the Intensive Phase of the Tisanoreica® Diet as, unlike the majority of the Tisanoreica® Style products, they have a reduced glucose content and are therefore compatible with the Intensive Phase.

There is a special menu for vegetarians that includes a higher quota of PAT® per day. Foods such as soy, seitan and tofu can be added during the stabilisation phase, as they contain carbohydrates.

You can drink tea and coffee during the diet but you should avoid soluble products. Barley coffee (a cereal-based drink) contains sugars which should be avoided.

Only during the Stabilisation Phase.

Salmon is one of the recommended varieties of fish. Of course, we recommend that you eat a fresh, unpackaged product.

Only during the Stabilisation Phase.

"Sugar free" usually refers to sucrose, but they may contain be other types of sugar that are not compatible with the Intensive Phase. We therefore recommend Tisanoreica® sweets: Candy Mech or Tisanofresh.

Coca Cola zero is compatible, as it contains artificial sweeteners. Other drinks or sugar free beverages just have a reduced carbohydrate content, so they should be avoided.

Grains for the preparation of first courses (durum wheat semolina, rice, barley, spelt) are reintroduced in the Stabilisation Phase in portions ranging from 50 to 80 grams, according to the individual's nutritional needs.

These diets should only be followed under strict medical supervision. The "do it yourself" approach is always discouraged, especially where one's health is concerned. You need a doctor's certificate before you can start the Tisanoreica® Diet. The Tisanoreica® Diet is not suitable for certain groups of people:

- Pregnant and lactating women
- Insulin-dependent diabetics
- People suffering from severe renal, hepatic or cardiac failure.

Only during the Stabilisation Phase.

Yellow, orange and red vegetables have a higher carbohydrate content than white or green vegetables, so it is advisable to avoid them during the Intensive Phase and reintroduce them in moderate quantities during the Stabilisation Phase.

Durum wheat, semolina, pasta, and other grains such as barley, rice, spelt, and kamut are preferable to bread, pizza and other derivatives.

Yogurt must not be eaten during the Intensive Phase. In the Stabilisation Phase, those containing lactose (sugar) should be avoided.

Balsamic vinegar is not recommended because it contains a small amount of sugar.

Yes, but it is preferable to use fresh or frozen ones, not the grilled variety, as they contain a considerable quantity of oil.

Yes, as long as it doesn’t contain carrots, potatoes or pulses, as these are rich in carbohydrates. It's better to use varieties such as cream of zucchini or asparagus, etc.

It's better to use a plant extract.

We recommend that you not exceed a teaspoon of this cheese.

No; however, during the Intensive Phase you can enjoy Tisanopast Original with vegetables, while in the Stabilisation Phase Tisanopast Original can be replaced by durum wheat semolina pasta, but always with vegetables.

Garlic and onion can be used in small quantities as seasoning, but not as separate side dishes.

Yes, you can eat a whole lemon (up to one a day).

The Tisanoreica Diet® has its own T-Sweeter.

Among the symptoms related to ketosis, which is triggered during the first few days of the Intensive Phase, it is possible that you will feel quite tired and may even have a headache. This is normal. Taking phyto-extracts, a special feature of the Tisanoreica Diet, can reduce these symptoms.

You should talk to your doctor so that he can check to see if there is any protein supplement compatible with the type of physical activity you intend to undertake.

Weight loss depends on your initial body composition and your clinical situation. Studies that have been carried out have shown that the average weight loss after 7 days of the Intensive Phase is about 2.5 kg (which is almost exclusively fat).

The effectiveness of the Tisanoreica® Diet has been verified using only Tisanoreica® products. So, anyone who wants to follow this dietary protocol must be rigorous and scrupulously stick to Tisanoreica® Diet products, as they act in combination to give guaranteed results. Mixing Tisanoreica®  branded products with other brands, which have been designed to work in a different way, can only have a detrimental effect on the weight loss achieved, and, in some cases, may even be damaging to your health.

Given the "active ingredients", the contents of the phytoextracts, the answer is yes. Therefore, caution is advised and it is essential that you get medical advice before starting.
