  PLAN 4: DIET - by Editor

The very word 'diet' can make the bravest of us quake in fear, especially those of us who equate diet with starving.

This diet doesn't require that you starve. In fact, you can eat all you want, as long as you eat the right stuff.

And what is this 'right stuff' of which you can eat any amount?

The answer is green vegetables. Needless to say, if you cook the vegetables in oil, you're not going to get very far with your weight loss plan. Most Indians don't believe that it is possible to cook a meal without using a whole lot of oil. Nothing can be further from the truth. Vegetables taste great when they are saut´┐Żed, using very little oil. And if you must use oil, try and use extra virgin olive oil.

The greatest gift you can give your family is a wholesome diet. You can eat tasty and unhealthy, and you can eat tasty and healthy. Most of us opt for the tasty and unhealthy because it seems to be the easiest option. Making the right, healthy choice will by far impact our health, and our weight, favourably.

Eat a variety of foods. Don't stick to the same five vegetables and dals all the time! By eating various foods, you are likely to meet a much broader range of nutritional requirements. In addition, if you eat something which you eat very seldom, your family is probably not going to mind if it is cooked in a different way, and not cooked in oil.

Always opt for food that is produced locally, and that is in season. Buying foods transported from far really makes no sense. In the first place, it is far more expensive. In the second place, since it comes from far, it is possible that it is packed with preservatives. Stay away from packaged foods. They have very little food value, and are packed with fats, salt and sugar. The lower processed the food, the better the food value. It is better to prepare food from scratch. Add spices to compensate for the lack of oil in your food.

However, in this article we are not just concerned about eating healthy. We also want to know what we should avoid, in order to lose weight.

Stay away from sugar. This is possibly the hardest requirement of all, but it is a must if you are serious about losing weight. It may be hard for you to deprive yourself of sweet indefinitely, and it may not work, so the best thing to do would be to set a target for yourself. Decide that you will not eat anything that has sugar in it, for a month. If you don't think you can do this, opt for a saccharine-free sugar substitute. Try Sugarite, which is sugar without the calories, or Stugar, which is a natural sweeter made from a South American plant, and has around 1 calorie per teaspoon as opposed to 20 calories in a spoon of sugar.

Also, eliminate anything with flour (maida) in it, like rice, pasta, and rice. According to Dr. Bob Green, for the first month, stay away from whole grains (brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat cereals and breads). After that, you can slowly add them back. So what can you eat then? Essentially, eat lean proteins like fish, lots of vegetables, and fruits, which will help satisfy your sweet cravings.

Comments:   Maybe Dr.BOB Greene is making waves here, there or wherever. But this is my personal opinion, to which I have the right, right I personally like to follow the standard food pyramid which has been a result of many many years of research by renowned scientists all over the world. This "plan" has no link to that whatsoever. Anyways, I feel diet is such a personal thing - what suits one may not always suit the other.
