F2 Diet

The long-awaited sequel to The F-Plan Diet.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

In the 1980s, Audrey Eyton launched the F Plan Diet, which turned into an international bestseller. Now, her follow-up plan, The F2 Diet, is perfectly tailored to 21st century eating and living.

Eyton's F2 Diet is not just a plan that helps you lose weight but it also seeks to detoxify your body and clear your mind. Applying the same principles as the F-Plan diet, the F2 focuses on eating foods that help your body to burn fat while also clearing up chronic and pesky health conditions like mood swings, constipation, headaches and fatigue.

The F2 Diet also includes meal plan and simple-to-make recipes.

PRO
  • Follow-up to a Bestseller
  • Promotes a clean-eating diet
  • Encourages awareness of how food choices are connected to well-being
  • Includes practical tips and recipes
CON
  • May not reveal any new health or diet information
  • Targeted more toward women than men
  • Uses metric system in dietary recommendations and information
  • No focus on fitness
DIET and NUTRITION

The F2 Diet is a low-glycemic, whole-foods diet that focuses on choosing foods that are high in fiber and rich in nutrients.

There are ten basic rules to follow with the F2 Diet:

They are:

  • Drink plenty of water, herbal teas or low-calorie drinks
  • Eat either a vegetarian diet or choose fish over red meat and poultry
  • Avoid or strictly limit the amount of fat you eat that is found in certain foods like cheese, high fat dairy and chocolate
  • Every day, eat plenty of fresh greens and legumes
  • Eat two slices of a high fiber bread each day
  • Consume a fresh salad or the special F2 soup every day
  • Start the day with a half of a pink grapefruit and a bowl of high fiber cereal topped with green-colored banana
  • Eat two additional servings of low- glycemic fruits every day
  • Consume a food that contains live active yogurt cultures or probiotics each day
  • When consuming starches, choose whole grains such as bulgur, brown rice or barley

The F2 Diet also includes recipes and meal plans.

EXERCISE

The F2 Diet does not offer comprehensive exercise information.

CONCLUSION

As a follow-up to the F-Plan, The F2 Diet builds upon the same principles as the bestselling diet plan of the 80s and adds updated health information as well as tips and insights for 21st century living. Its focus on clean foods that are rich in nutrients and fiber make it an exemplary low-calorie and satisfying eating plan to follow.

Just be aware that since this is a UK-based publication, nutrition information is given in the metric system.

How many grams of fibre in the soups and salads? The advice says aim for 40 gms of fibre per day, but does not say how much fibre is in the soups or salads, so not sure how you calculate what you are consuming if you don't follow one of the suggested menus.

On day 5 of my second time on the FFP. Lost 7 lbs, my puffy/bloated belly are almost gone. It totally encourages you to exercise because you feel so good! Thanks to the journal, I hope to remind myself for years to come how GREAT I feel, so much energy with no caffine. Yes, the no Vino is def. hard, but I allowed myself a cpl of small glasses-gotta keep it real! I highly recommend it!

The recipes are delicious and healthy. I like to make enough of one of the soups or salads for a week and then store it in tubs to bring to work each day along with some fruit. The lentil cranberry salad and sweet potato soup are my favorites.

I think this is a great book - no silly celeb fads - just honest to goodness down to earth advice and recipes. I don't agree that it's expensive - you can choose high fibre foods that don't cost the earth and use them in the recipes. The soups and salad recipes are especially good, high in fibre and tasty too. Excellent if you are trying to cut down on a high fat diet or if you're just trying to lose a little weight and feel healthier.

Great meals and the theory seems right but lots of preparation and expensive!

just started on this, the comedown from a high fat/sugar diet is making me a little lothargic, but the soup recipies are actually delicious, i always thought diet food had to be tasteless and non filling, i was mistaken, my digestion has sped up considerably wich isnt a bad thing in my opinion, the book states to ease into the high fibre diet so a full bore strict diet is not recommended.

id say go for it just for the spicey sweet potato soup recipie, its lovely!

for those of us who do not usually consume a lot of fibre, this diet really wreaks havoc with your digestive tract. it does what it says on the cover, by flushing out all toxins and such, but it's at the cost of any normal feeling with your insides the entire time, and some time after you're on the diet. u'll find that you're much more aware that your body is flushing itself out (quite literally) and this coupled with horrific trapped wind and uncomfortable and unbearable flatulance left me feeling quite bruised. it's worth taking a few notes from this book to use alongside a normal healthy eating and exercising lifestyle, but i really would only stick to the 'hardcore' of this diet for a very short period of time as the discomfort it brings can be really uncomfortable
