Default A new diet I saw in the latest issue of Woman's World magazine.

It advocated protein, without being insane (like I personally feel Atkins is). It also advocated cutting out bad carbs and only keeping good carbs in. It also advocated 30 minutes of exercise a day. It said getting extra protein boosts levels of leucine, which forces a dieter's body to burn fat instead of muscle. It claimed you could lose 8lbs in 14 days. It seemed healthy, but it only allows you to have a mere 1200lbs a day, and as I just found out, I've got to consume more than that to keep my metabolism from slowing down. Still, I can modify this diet to get the 1600 calories I need. Here's the sample plan it listed:

BREAKFAST: (choose one daily)
2-3 egg whites, scrambled
1 slice whole wheat toast
1 cup unsweetened green tea (I would use Splenda, actually)

or

1/2 wholewheat english muffin
1 slice canadian bacon
3/4 oz low fat cheese
1 cup unsweetened green tea


LUNCH: (Choose one daily)

4 oz grilled chicken
2-3 cups salad greens, 2tbs vinaigrette
1 piece fruit

or

2 oz each lean deli meat and cheese
2 cups raw vegetables, 2tbs vinaigrette
1 piece fruit


DINNER:

4 oz grilled or broiled fish, chicken, or lean steak
2 cups grilled or broiled vegatables, 2tbs vinaigrette


SNACKS: (Choose two daily)

8oz orange juice or one orange
10-12 almonds or 30 pistachios
1 energy bar
1oz beef jerky


This diet seems pretty healthy, you just have to adjust it accordingly for the amount of calories you should take in. I also like it 'cause it corresponds with the 'eat every three hours' theory.

I think this is the Sonoma one isn't it? I know that was just in a Woman's World magazine.

It didn't say anything specific, it just said some soap opera star, Kimberely McCoullough (sp?) was following it, and the above was her exact menu. I think a lot of diets are very similar, and are often imitations of eachother. This one sounds pretty healthy. I've eaten some south beach diet food that was really healthy (and good, too!)

haha, Core, South Beach, Sonoma...just goes to show that no matter what book it's from or what name it goes by, the successful diets are almost all the same: lots of veggies, fruits, whole grains, and lean dairy and protein, and limit highly-processed foods
