As its name suggests, almost anything goes on the Food Lovers Diet. It encourages followers to enjoy a balanced diet of non-starchy vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and healthy fats.
The diet is heart-healthy and appropriate for diabetics. It can also be easily modified to suit vegetarians by trading lean meats, seafood, and poultry with eggs, spirulina, quinoa, and other protein-rich alternatives.
On the Food Lovers Diet you’ll eat three daily meals complemented by snacks . This plan will see you chowing down every two to three hours, so you’ll never get hungry.
Lean proteins including skinless poultry breasts, sirloin steaks, pork tenderloins, fish fillets, and eggs are intended to be the centrepiece of any meal on the Food Lovers Diet.
These are supported with foods containing carbohydrates and an optional tablespoon of a healthy fat such as mayonnaise or peanut butter. So you might find yourself eating a smoked salmon bagel for breakfast, a veggie frittata for lunch, and spaghetti and meatballs with a side salad for dinner.
You can also drink limited amounts of tea, coffee, club soda, and diet drinks. This is in addition to the 12 daily glasses of water , plus an extra glass for every 20 minutes of exercise, the diet recommends.
