Eating Well for Optimum Health

Dr. Andrew Weil's custom diet plan

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Dr. Andrew Weil's 8-week plan, Eating Well for Optimum Health, follows the idea that food has medicinal benefits. Fresh foods that provide complete nutrients are encouraged while eliminating unhealthy choices like pre-packaged, manufactured foods.

PRO

CON
  • None
DIET and NUTRITION

Men and women have a daily caloric intake of between 2,000 and 3,000 determined by weight and amount of exercise. At least half of your nutrients should be unprocessed carbs, with thirty percent from fat and no more than 20 percent from protein.

The 30 percent of your diet made of fat should consist of one-part each polyunsaturated and saturated fats and two-parts monounsaturated fat. Eat dairy items like cheese and butter in moderation. Start eating more fish, walnuts, soy, poultry without skin and eggs. Completely remove fried food from your diet.

The 20 percent of your diet made of protein should be accomplished more so with vegetables than animal products.

Whole grains and fresh produce can provide your daily fiber of forty grams. Consume at least six servings of water daily. Eating Well for Optimum Health encourages good carbs, like fresh produce, whole grains and legumes. Limit sugar.

EXERCISE

Dr. Weil's program provides activities that can help your mind, body, and spirit feel revitalized.

CONCLUSION

Are you skeptical of the establishment food industry and all the confusing packaging? Dr. Weil is one of the leading experts in natural and alternative health.

This plan by Dr. Andrew Weil is all about focusing on eating fresh, whole foods but my bills at the grocery store are going through the roof - there has to be a cheaper way to eat right?

I love Dr. Weil...he gives great information and for only $4 a week, you can't really go wrong. All we hear about these days is whole foods so it was a great deit to follow.
