Eat More Weigh Less

You'll eat plenty of tasty food, just no meat.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Eat More, Weigh Less is a vegetarian approach to weight loss designed by Dr. Dean Ornish, an esteemed medical professional, that does just as much for you on the scale as it does for your overall health. Eat More, Weigh Less contributes to your wellness by reducing potential for common weight-related illnesses such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

The benefits come from the plant- and carb-saturated diet. You'll eat considerable amounts of produce, grains, beans and soy. Eat More also provides generous amounts of fiber. The mixture of carbs and fiber help you maintain a feeling of fullness and avoid those blood sugar spikes that leave you grabbing for mid-day snacks.

PRO
  • You eat plenty of food, so no hunger pangs
CON
  • Won't be a long-term solution unless you're committed to a vegetarian lifestyle
DIET and NUTRITION

Vegetarian usually leaves a lot to be desired for not dedicated to the lifestyle. But the Eat More plan promises to keep you feeling full, losing weight and not sacrificing delicious meals. Dr. Ornish's recipes feature Blueberry Pancakes, Southwestern Vegetable Stew, Mushroom and Artichoke Frittata and Stuffed Zucchini with Tomato Sauce and Fennel Seeds.

EXERCISE

Says you exercise less on this program because you have fat calories to burn. While practicing the Eat More plan, you're encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle by working out, relaxation and smokers should quit.

CONCLUSION

Eat More, Weigh Less has been popular, despite a few critics claiming that you won't consume enough fat and that the absence of fish eliminates important nutrients. If you can dedicate yourself to a vegetarian lifestyle, this is worthwhile.
