DIET and NUTRITION

Diet Myths That Keep Us Fat is chock-full of solid and eye-opening information on what is the best way to stay trim and healthy for life. In addition to the debunked diet myths and 101 diet truths, the book also outlines the Treat Yourself Diet, a low-fat and modest-calorie eating plan that has you eating three meals and two snacks a day. Then one day each week you are allowed a "treat meal" where you get to eat your favorite foods without stuffing yourself.

The Treat Yourself Diet includes 30 breakfasts, 30 lunches, 30 dinners and 30 snacks that you customize based upon your own preferences. Each day, you''ll choose one meal or snack from each category. Each day's worth of food contains 1,200 to 1,400 calories. Recipes are easy to prepare and most of the meals and snacks take a mere few minutes to prepare.

A typical day might look like this:

  • One half of a whole-grain bagel, 1 hard-boiled egg, 1 piece of fresh fruit and a 1/2 grapefruit for breakfast.

  • A vegetarian sandwich made with avocado, Swiss cheese and vegetables and one cup of blueberries for lunch.

  • Dinner might be a turkey burger and 1/2 cup of coleslaw.

  • Throughout the day, you might munch on two fig bars and 12 roasted almonds.

  • Your once-a-week Treat Meal might be a 6-8 ounce steak, baked potato with butter and sour cream, a salad, glass of wine and slice of cheesecake for dessert.

The Treat Yourself Diet can help you lose 8 -10 pounds in one month.

EXERCISE

Just as healthful eating is a regular part of the Treat Yourself Diet, so is exercise. Dr. Snyderman encourages you to be physically active every day so that you can not only reap the myriad of benefits of exercise, but that you can enjoy the foods you love (in moderation) without the guilt.

On days that you can't make it to the gym, you should try to sneak in more physical movement such as taking the stairs, parking far away from your office door, or standing while doing daily activities like talking on the phone.

CONCLUSION

The Treat Yourself Diet outlined in Dr. Nancy Snyderman's book, Diet Myths that Keep Us Fat, is a sensible, practical and liberating lifestyle eating plan that allows you to finally find peace in your relationship with food. Focusing on fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, portion control and regular exercise, the Treat Yourself Diet teaches you how to balance what you want to eat with your energy needs.
