I like this kind of food. It is really tasty but I find that I get a lot of gas with this type of food. Mediterranean food focuses more on taste and appearance rather than calorie consciousness.
Fresh vegetables, olive oils, wines, lean meats and nuts are some of the ingredients that find their way into this particular dieting plan. Actually, nuts and oils are a rare find in any diet plan of today.
Your food must be tasty, if not, under this plan, it is rejected outright. Saturated fats, white flour and too much sugar are just plain bad for the human body, and they also are not accepted.
Is it your desire to lose weight quickly? Personally I do not go that way. I dislike quick fixes. I figure that it took me a long time to put these pounds on. It is probably going to take me a long time to take them off. But, whatever rocks your boat. Everyone is different.
The first ten days of the plan is devoted to quick weight loss. Clients are also encouraged to wean themselves off sugar and white flour.
During this time period you can tuck into things like tomatoes, greens, onions, whole wheat products, low fat cheeses and here is where the olive oil comes in. You are also encouraged to consume natural foods as well.
Two other phases are incorporated into the picture. I like the second one which focuses on weight loss and the third zeroes in on weight maintenance. Portion control is discussed and additional food choices are taken on board. Oddly enough exercise is not a biggie with this plan. Maybe that is why it does so well.
Unfortunately, this type of plan fits right in with the sedentary lifestyle. This is not good. Balance is important in any weight loss plan. The heart needs conditioning. Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in America.
We need to condition ourselves through physical activity. Any plan that does not include proper physical activity is not a heart smart weight loss plan.
This diet food recipe plan helps you avoid trans fats which are a big no no! As a matter of fact, people who are not concerned with losing weight are drawn to this plan. The reason for this is because of the tasty recipes and food quality.
