THE DIET PLAN
WHAT SHOULD I EAT?
Nutrient-dense, low calorie foods are the secret to losing weight and keeping it off. Your goal for the next 2 weeks is to choose foods that have the highest nutritional value. This means choosing foods that are rich in nutrients and low in calories. Try to aim for a balanced diet that includes whole grains, healthy fats and lean proteins at every meal.
Whole foods are the best form of nutrition. The term "whole foods” refers literally to food in its whole form, with minimal processing to keep it as close to its original form as possible. For example, visualize a whole apple and compare this to a glass of apple juice. The juice on its own does not contain the skin, seeds or fleshy center. However, the whole apple offers all the goodness of the entire fruit and consequently offers greater health properties. This example applies to most all foods, so choosing "whole foods” over processed foods means you get the richest supply of nutrients possible.
Color is important! Antioxidants called "polyphenols” are responsible for the brightly colored pigments (vibrant reds, greens, blues and purples) of many fruits and vegetables. By keeping your food choices colorful, not only do you get a gorgeous looking meal, but you’ll also benefit from the positive health impact these colorful foods provide.
WHEN SHOULD I EAT?
Always eat breakfast! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After fasting for 8 hours through the night, the body relies on sustenance in the morning for physical and mental energy and focus. Ideally you should eat breakfast within an hour of waking to stimulate metabolism. If you are not accustomed to eating food this early in the day, try (at least for the next 2-weeks) to eat a very light but nutritious breakfast to help you get going in the morning.
Lunch should be the biggest meal of the day. This is when your digestive enzymes are maximized and your body is primed to break down and absorb food nutrients. Having your largest meal in the middle of the day provides your body with the calories that it needs to stay active.

How does my diet/exercize plan rate?2005-10-19 15:14:07 by JudgeMe
Judge me, please.
Im trying to lose 10 pounds (I have already lost 3, so 7 more to go). I am 54, 134, female, avg build, and a runner. Heres my diet: breakfast is coffee (w/cream) & small bowl of cereal & light yogurt. Lunch is a good-sized spinach salad w/ light Italian dressing and some fruit or yogurt. Dinner is usually about 400 500 calories usually a carb-based meal w/ protein. Ive been averaging approx. 1500 cal/day and I run 6 days/week 35 to 40 miles/wk.
I have been doing this 95% faithfully for 3 weeks and I have lost 3 pounds (which Im happy with seems like I should be losing more, but I guess since Ive always been active, the loss isnt going to be dramatic super fast)
I make my own diet plan2004-09-28 09:20:39 by BothFeet
I pretty much know what I need to cut out when I start packing on pounds so I don't follow a set diet plan. If I eat a lot of take out, fast food, fried foods, pasta, etc ... I start to put on weight. If I cut back on those things I start to lose weight.
For dinner most nights I have lean meats as suggested by South Beach and fresh vegetables. I bring leftovers to work. I don't bother myself with worrying if the vegetables I am eating are too high in carbs. I figure vegies are just good for me. I eat fruit for desserts. I cut back things I love like white bread with lots of butter, tortillas, pasta
