Information on Various Diets

Here's a good round up of various diets you can embark on: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/5847.php.

Included in the summaries is a raw food diet which is here: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/7381.php

When I tell people I lost weight eating raw food, they immediately jump to the conclusion that I live on nothing but sprouts and salad. But, as detailed in the article, and as I've written, being a raw foodist just means that you aim for the majority of your food to be raw.

By eating fruit for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and only raw snacks you're easily up to 66%-70% of your food intake being raw. Add a salad with dinner and you've probably hit the 75% mark.

I generally eat cooked food every day, but the majority of the foods I eat are fresh, uncooked fruits and vegetables.

Yesterday, for example, I had bananas for breakfast, and a salad with lettuce, red onion, advocado, almonds and a lemon vinaigrette for lunch. For dinner, however, I had roasted red snapper with tomatoes, olives, red onions and zucchini. It's really not that difficult to stay on this diet.

Every so often I do manage to "fall off the wagon," particularly in the Winter when I just crave warm food. But I always manage to get back on.

  1. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've
    done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads very
    fast for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!
