Perfect Formula Diet is not a run of the mill diet that you will see
publicized on television, the news or newspapers. This is a unique
and well designed formula created by author Janice Stanger to help
you shed those unwanted pounds and keep them off. But, before
starting any diet plan you need to consult your physician to make
sure that this plan or any diet is right for you.
is a plant-based-diet. Throw away those measuring spoons, calorie
counters and measuring cups and learn about a way to enjoy as much
food as you want and lose weight. The Perfect Formula Diet
encompasses six categories of Perfect Foods. The categories are:
Vegetable, Legumes (beans and peas) and potatoes, nuts and seeds,
fruits, spices and whole grains. The formula for each meal should
consist of one quarter of your foods will come from each of these
four groups for every meal: one quarter will be vegetables, one
quarter will be fruits, one quarter legumes and one quarter whole
grains. Forget portion size or servings with this diet. You eat when
you are hungry and stop when you are satisfied.
This diet eliminates animal food, which includes poultry, red meat and fish. Treats are allowed such as dark chocolate. But, you need to read the label and make sure that the chocolate has no milk, butterfat or other dairy components as this diet also excludes dairy products. Plant-based cake, cookies or frozen desserts are great. Make sure that they are 100 percent plant-based before snacking on these treats. Of course do not eat anything deep-fried and eat your calories do not drink them. Just to be clear this diet is plant-based and free of meat, poultry, fish, eggs and anything made with milk or another animal.
The author also states that anyone on this diet plan needs to take a Vitamin B 12 supplement. You might even want to Vitamin D too.
The research in favor of
this plan is overwhelming and you need to read it for yourself. The
positive aspects are definitely related to keeping you healthier and
possibly preventing you from getting certain diseases. With any diet
plan you need to make a solid commitment to staying on the plan. The
author states that you need a strategy for making that transition
from your former diet to this new way of thinking and eating.
Finally, you need to deal with shopping for the items you will be
eating, cooking and eating Perfect Foods: the logistics.
Support from family and friends
are vital and will help with your success. Revisit your list of
reasons for being on this plan and look for new sources and recipes
with Perfect Foods. Use this book as a resource to go back to in
order to stay on this plan. Reread pages 109 and 119 in order to
remind yourself of the many important strategies that will help keep
you on track.
What really makes this diet great and easy to stay on is what you can eat. You will find foods in each of the six categories in most restaurants, supermarkets and grocery stores. Read Chapter 9 to get more ideas on how to create your own menu at home, on the go and when you are out with friends. The author sites many studies in Chapters 11 and 12 that will help you decide whether this plan is right for you and the health benefits that come along with it. After reading Chapter 11 I realized that eating the legumes and fruits and vegetable that I do as part of my daily diet since losing a lot of weight too, did help to lower my cholestrol and boost my energy level I eliminated red meat, eggs, fried foods and butter five years ago. I will not state whether you should go on this plan you need to read the facts, exam the research and decide for yourself.
You challenge is to decide whether you want to join many others who have tried this plan and have been successful. Your decision to make.
