BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Sardine Diet was created in order to help you slim down and improve your overall health. This diet plan takes the work out of losing weight and you won’t have to count any calories or take any supplements.

With the Sardine Diet you get a meal plan that includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts. The Sardine Diet cuts bad saturated fats, properly hydrates body tissues and boasts good omega-3 fats.

The small fish known as sardines are nutritional powerhouses, and they provide an incredible amount of protein and calcium. The diet is not specifically named because you have to eat sardines with every meal though. Sardines are known as king of the omega-3s, a good source of high-quality protein, calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus.

The expert who created the Sardine Diet and wrote the book of the same title is Keri Glassman. The actual Sardine Diet book also includes recipes that you can follow on the program. You don’t have to count calories because the recommended foods that you eat on the diet provide all of the daily nutrition you need.

DIET and NUTRITION

Although eating sardines is a big part of The Sardine Diet, it is not the only aspect of it. You will consume more sardines than you traditionally would, but there are many benefits to eating sardines.

This program will allow you to eat the foods you love and will balance fat, cut calories and introduce many more nutrients into your diet. While on the diet, you will eat three meals and two snacks per day. There are recipes included that allow you to add some variety into your diet. A sample day of eating on this diet might include:

  • Breakfast: Yogurt parfait, smoked salmon, cheddar-broccoli omelet or oatmeal pancake
  • Snack: Spinach dip and crackers
  • Lunch: Sardine tostada with avocado salsa or roasted chicken wrap
  • Snack: Veggie sushi
  • Dinner: Turkey burger, pork tenderloin with green beans or sardine pasta primavera
  • Dessert: Strawberries with chocolate sauce
EXERCISE

The Sardine Diet focuses solely on the eating practices of those on the diet. There are no recommended exercises or even a section of the book that talks about exercise.

CONCLUSION

For those wanting to increase their omega-3 intake, and those who would like to eat healthier The Sardine Diet could be for you. Although the diet is named for sardines, that doesn't mean you’ll be eating sardines for every meal. Sardines are a highly recommended part of the diet, but it’s because of the health benefits that they offer.

The eating plan on the Sardine Diet includes three meals and two snacks per day to keep your metabolism moving. There is a shortfall in that the program doesn’t offer an exercise plan. For optimal results on any diet plan, exercise needs to be included.
