Hi everyone i'm new here
I'm currently on Atkins, but i'm already finding it difficult to stick with due to the lack of variety. I need something with a little more variety where I can at least eat fruits, also I like meat but I can do without it. I heard about this diet in First Magazine and it seems pretty healthy. Here is a sample of a typcial days menu:
(in blender 8oz apple juice
2 bannas, 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
blend until smooth)
Large green salad topped with red, yellow, and orange bell pepper slices and 1/2 cup raw slivered almonds then drizzled with olive oil and vinegar
Grilled veggie burger topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and salsa or guacomole; along with a Greek salad side sprinkled with goat cheese
They say you can snack on fresh fruit,popcorn (popped in coconut oil) baked corn chips with guacomole and nuts throughout the day. And for beverages water ( your body weight divided by 4, for how much ounces) herbal teas, and vegetable juice. Only 2 slices of bread should be eaten a day and it should be whole grain bread.
Meals can be rounded off with brown rice, sweet potatoes, or baked yams.You can eat any type of raw vegetables.
They stress that it is not a diet but a lifestyle and not to count calories but eat until your full.
They aslo say you don't have to go completely raw, just go for about 80% and that the enzymes in the raw food is what causes you to lose weight and feel engergized.
Do you think this is a healthy diet?
