The Fast Food Diet was made for people who are constantly on the go and do not have time to cook meals at home. This is perfect for those people who travel for a living or busy moms that are trying to juggle hectic everyday life. By following the strict guidelines for this diet, people can lose up to 50 pound a year.
This diet was developed for those people who love the taste of fast food, and for those whose lives are too busy to follow a regular diet plan. People are always going to eat fast food, even if it is only once in awhile. This diet plan was made to help people make the right choices when eating at fast food restaurants, and even at sit down restaurants.
The Fast Food Diet is a six week program and may be little more strict than you may think. It gives you the choice to pick the healthy options off of a fast food menu. It teaches you how to make smart choices when it comes to ordering. There are many food that are not allowed on this diet, such as fried foods and sugary drinks. To make this diet successful, you also need to include an everyday exercise program. The creator of the diet, Stephen Sinartra, M.D. suggests walking at least one mile everyday. The diet allows about 1500 calories a day. It is best to pick items low in calories and healthy for you. There are healthy options at most fast food restaurants.
Foods allowed on the diet include:
- Baked potato
- Grilled chicken
- Whole wheat breads
- Low fat dressings
Foods not allowed on the diet include:
- Soda or sugary drinks
- Fried foods
- Trans fats
What to Get Excited Over
This would be a good and easy-to-follow diet if you are always eating out. It is also good because you do not need to do any special shopping.
Things to Consider
If you are too busy to do much cooking, would you be too busy to exercise? Exercise is a key ingredient in this diet, since many people already eat around 1500 calories a day. Rather than eating all meals at fast food restaurants, try to eat most meals or snacks at home, and eat fast food on a special occasion basis. You could also grab some fruits and keep them on hand for a quick snack.
This diet is not recommended. If you are eating at fast food restaurants, learning how to choose better and more healthy options off the menu is a great idea. However, no one should eat fast food frequently. Limit the amount of fast food you consume, and when you do have to turn to the drive thru, make sure you make a good choice.
