The scientific literature shows a quantitative relationship between diet combined with physical activity as a long term weight reduction modality and an important factor in weight maintenance.
Primary assumption - the 14/21 diet will have an impact on BMI values, and their long-term maintenance.
Secondary assumption - the 14/21 diet will have a positive impact on anthropomorphic and biochemical markers, on blood pressure, resting heart rate, RMR, and life quality.
