DIET and NUTRITION

The I Want to Save Your Life diet plan contains similar principles as those outlined in the Diet Detective. Namely, rather than eating obscure diet food, the show's contestants will go to regular grocery stores and choose among brand name foods as they locate the healthiest but also familiar diet-friendly items.

The focus will be on eating real food that is minimally processed and void of sugars and refined and processed ingredients. Contestants will go to the grocery store with Platkin as he helps them make wise choices such as choosing fresh vegetables and fruits over salad soaked in ranch dressing, lean proteins over higher fat meats and water and calorie-free beverages over sugary sodas and juices.

He will also assist them in the kitchen by helping them prepare healthy meals and snacks that can be made without a lot of ingredients and in a short amount of time.

Each contestant's diet will be customized to fit into their lifestyle and weight loss goals.

CONCLUSION
