For vegetarians who eatdairy productsand eggs, a healthy diet is the same as for anyone else, but without meat or fish.

The Eatwell Guideshows the different types of food we should eat to have a healthy, balanced diet, and in what proportions.

You don’t need to achieve this balance with every meal, but try to get the balance right over a day, or even a week. Choose options low in fat, salt and sugar whenever you can.

As outlined in the Eatwell Guide:

Try to eat at least 5 80g portions of fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced fruit and vegetables a day.As well as vitamins and minerals, fruit and vegetables provide fibre, which can help digestion and prevents constipation.

Find out more in 5 A Day: what counts?

Starchy foods such as potatoes, bread, cereals, rice andpasta should make up just over a third of the food you eat. Where possible, choose wholegrain varieties.

You should eat some starchy foods every day as part of a healthy, balanced diet.

Starchy foods are a good source of energy and the main source of a range of nutrients in our diet. As well as starch, they contain fibre, calcium, iron and B vitamins.

Milk and dairy products, such as cheese and yoghurt, are good sources of protein, calcium and vitamins A and B12.

This food group includes milk and dairy alternatives, such as fortified unsweetenedsoya, rice and oat drinks, which also contain calcium.

To make healthier choices, go for lower fat milk and dairy foods. Also choose lower sugar options.

Pulses include beans, peas and lentils. They’re a low-fat source of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals, and count as a portion of vegetables. Nuts and seeds are also a source of protein and other nutrients.

Pulses are particularly important for people who don’t get protein by eating meat, fish or dairy products.

Other non-dairy sources of protein include eggs and meat alternatives, such astofu, mycoprotein (such as Quorn), textured vegetable protein and tempeh.

You need to eat a variety of different sources ofprotein to get the right mixture of amino acids, which are used to build and repair the body’s cells.

Unsaturated fats, including vegetable, rapeseed, olive and sunflower oils, are healthier than saturated fats, such as butter, lard and ghee. But all types of fat are high in energy and should be eaten sparingly.

Foods high in salt, fat and sugar, such ascream, chocolate, crisps, biscuits, pastries, ice cream, cakes andpuddings, should be eaten less often and in small amounts.

Foods in this group mainly provide energy in the form of fats and sugars, but may onlyprovidea very small amount of other nutrients.

It’s important to vary what you eat.Some nutrients are found in smaller amounts in vegetarian sources, or are less easily absorbed by the body than those in meat or fish.

Contrary to popular belief, most vegetarians usually have enough protein and calcium (found in dairy products) in their diet.

But if you don’t plan your diet properly, you could miss out on essential nutrients. For example, vegetarians need to make sure they get enough iron and vitamin B12 in their diets.

During pregnancy and when breastfeeding, women who follow a vegetarian diet need to make sure they get enough vitamins and minerals for their child to develop healthily.

If you’re bringing up your baby or child on a vegetarian diet, you need to make sure they eat a wide variety of foods to provide the energy and vitamins they need for growth.

Read more aboutvegetarian and vegan babies and children.

Vegetarians are more likely to have lower iron stores than meat eaters.

Good sources of iron for vegetariansinclude:

Read more about iron.

Vitamin B12 is needed for growth, repair and general health.It’s only found naturally in animal products.

If you regularly eat eggs or dairy products, you probably get enough. But if you only eat a small amount or avoid all animal products, it’s important to have a reliable source of vitamin B12 in your diet.

Good sources of vitamin B12 include:

Read more about B vitamins.

Omega-3 fatty acids, primarily those found in oily fish, can help maintain a healthy heart and reduce the risk of heart disease when eaten as part of a healthy diet.

Sources of omega-3 fatty acids suitable for vegetarians include:

Evidence suggests that vegetarian sources of omega-3 fatty acids may not have the same benefits for reducing theriskof heart disease as those in oily fish.

But if you eat a vegetarian diet, you can still look after your heart by eating at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables each day, cutting down on food high in saturated fat, and watching how much salt you eat.

Session 1:Obesity

Obesityis a medical condition where the excess body fat accumulates in the body to an extent that it has a negative effect on health. It is defined by usingbody mass index (BMI) and is evaluated in terms of fat distribution and total cardiovascular risk factors. A person is considered as obese if the bodyweight is higher than 20%. Globally,overweight&Obesity as of now is the fifth leading risk for premature death. Almost 3 million adults die every year

Session 5:Obesity and Diabetes

Obesity increases the chances of developing the commontype of diabetes, type 2 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, body makes enough insulin but the cells in the body have become resistant to the salutary action of insulin. Therefore the blood sugar levels are high as the muscle cells become resistant to glucose. Hence, the glucose from blood cannot enter in the cells where it is used for energy. Fat in the abdomen can also cause insulin insensitivity. An overweight body with aBMImore than 30 is one of the risk factor for Insulin resistance

Session 6:Obesity and Cancer

Extra fat in the body may have harmful effects, like producing hormones and growth factors that affect the way our cells work. Fat cells can also attract immune cells to body tissues which release chemicals that cause long-lasting inflammation. This can raise the risk of several diseases including cancer.People with obesity havechronic low-level or subacute unresolved inflammation, which is associated with increased cancer risk

Session 7:Genetics of Obesity

Genetics plays an important role in obesity. In disorders such asBardet-Biedl Syndromeand Prader- willi syndrome, genes can directly cause obesity. The percentage of obesity that can be attributed to genetics varies widely, depending on the population examined, from 6% to 85%.At the risk of oversimplification, it seems that from a genetic standpoint, human obesity appears less a metabolic than a neurobehavioural disease

Session 11: Eating Disorders

Obesity and overweight may increase the risk of many serious diseases health related problems, including diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. It also leads to short and long term health problems in pregnant women and their offsprings. Obesity is not just a cosmetic problem; it is achronic diseasethat can have a negative effect on many systems in your body. People who are 40% overweight are twice as likely to die prematurely as is an average-weight person

Obesity counsellingis beneficial for those who are overweight. It provides and encouragement, guidance and support to the individuals to overcome the problem and improve their quality of life. Management of a patient with obesity includes lifestyle changes of increasingphysical activityand reducingcalorie intake. Counselling also provides emotional strength to manage feelings like stress, and unhappiness without turning to food.Proper counselling helps people with obesity to realize thatweight lossis a slow process that requires hard work and commitment

Do fasting diets work?

Mar, 15th 2019 9:49 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

Mark Twain once said a little starvation can really do more for the average sick man than can the best medicines and the best doctors.

There may be something to Twains belief, as we increasingly hear that skipping meals or even fasting is good for us.

Celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Beyonc and Benedict Cumberbatch swear by fasting diets, while BBC science presenter Dr Michael Mosley created a sensation in 2012 when he devised his 5:2 diet.

Fasting diets come in various forms.

The 5:2 diet allows you to eat normally five days a week and restrict calorie intake to a quarter (500 to 600 calories) on two days.

Alternate-day fasting is one day of fasting, one day normal eating.

Theres also time-restricted fasting, or eating only during certain hours of the day, like the so-called Warrior Diet, which involves minimal calorie intake for 20 hours a day, and eating normally only between 6pm and 10pm.

Weight loss seems to be the main one.

A 2018 study by the UKs University of Surrey found that one group doing time-restricted fasting lost on average more than twice as much body fat as those in a control group that ate meals as normal.

The American Heart Association also stated in 2017 that there was evidence that both alternate-day fasting and periodic fasting may be effective for weight loss, although there are no data that indicate whether the weight loss can be sustained long term.

Dr Mosley argues that not only does fasting lead to weight loss, but also cellular repair and improved brain function.

Accredited practising dietitian Kate Gudorf says fasting appears to produce weight loss as does any form of calorie restriction.

Some studies have found that fasting can reduce fasting glucose levels, HDL (bad) cholesterol, body-mass index, triglycerides (fats in blood) and some inflammatory markers, she says.

The question is, are these outcomes a testament to fasting diets, or because weight loss is produced, which feeds into these other benefits? At the moment we lack good data on fasting diets, says Ms Gudorf, of the Dietitians Association of Australia.

She recommends instead simply eating a healthier diet, with more vegetables and fruit, meaning both fewer calories and meeting nutritional needs.

Weight loss is not always a good indication of diet quality its much easier to eat fewer calories if you simply eat a healthy diet, and nutritionally you would be meeting all your needs.

Basically Australians are not eating very well and getting about a third of their energy from junk food.

6 Vegetarian Diet Benefits & Vegetarian Diet Plan …

Mar, 14th 2019 5:46 pm, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

According to research published by the Department of Nutrition, School of Public Health at Loma Linda University, people who follow a vegetarian diet or vegan diet meaning they avoid all meat and possibly dairy, fish and eggs too represent between 2 percent to 5 percent of the total adult population in the United States. (1) Several analyses that have compared vegetarian diets to non-vegetarian diets have found that those eating predominately plant-based diets have increased protection against health problems, including cardiovascular diseases, cardiometabolic risk factors, some cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity and total mortality.

Does this mean that everyone should give up all animal-derived foods in their diets? Not necessarily.Overall I believe its possible to be healthy as a vegetarian, or better yet a pescatarian, but for reasons Ill explain more about below, when it comes to thepros and cons of being a vegan(meaning giving up ALL animal foods), in my opinion its usually not ideal.

What can you eat on a vegetarian diet? While there are many versions of vegetarian diets, mostconsist of eating plant-based foods along with moderate amounts of eggs and dairy (but no meat). The staples of a balanced vegetarian diet include a variety of plants like fresh or cooked veggies, fruit, nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes.

How does a vegetarian diet work to promote heart health, weight loss and health benefits? And are there any risks involved in cutting out the majority of animal-based foods in your diet?

Because plants are low in calories but high in essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, vegetarian diets can be very nutrient-dense. Research published in the Proceedings of the Nutrition Society found that vegetarian diets are usually rich in carbohydrates, omega-6 fatty acids, dietary fiber, carotenoids, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E and magnesium, and relatively low in protein, saturated fat, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, retinol, vitamin B12 and zinc. (2)

However, theres no guarantee that a vegetarian diet will result in health improvements. Ultimately it all depends on the specific foods someone chooses to eat, plus his or her individual reaction to cutting out most, or all, animal products.

There are several variations and definitions to distinguish between when talking about vegetarianism. Here are the most common types of vegetarian diets:

Vegetarian vs. Ovo-lacto Vegetarian:

Vegetarian vs.PescatarianDiet

Vegetarian Diet vs. Vegan Diet:

So which type of vegetarian or plant-based diet is healthiest?

As a vegetarian or pescatarian youre able to get plenty of amino acids and vitamin B12 without supplementation, so I prefer those approaches to being a vegan. If you are a vegan, I strongly suggest you supplement with vitamin B12 and consume plant-based protein powder daily. Additionally, be sure to get plenty of nuts, seeds, mushrooms, beans, seaweed and higher protein grains like quinoa in your diet.

I also understand that many people today choose to follow a vegan or vegetarian diet because theres so much improper treatment of livestock and other animals. While I totally agree that this is sad and common, there are companies that abide by organic and Biblically based standards. If youre willing to consume high-quality animal proteins in small or moderate amounts, Id definitely suggest seeking out these types of companies so you can feel good about your source.

1. High in Antioxidants and Vitamins

Almost all plant-based foods offerhigh amounts of antioxidantsand/or have some anti-inflammatory properties, which means they help stop the progression ofdisease by supplying nutrients that fight oxidative stress. Diets that are high in vegetables, fruit and other plant foods like legumes or ancient grains provide lots of nutrients, including antioxidants and phytonutrients, such as flavonoids,resveratrol, quercetin, beta-carotene and more; essential vitamins, such as vitamin C, E and A; trace minerals, such as manganese or phosphorus; and electrolytes like potassium and magnesium.

A nutrient-dense diet is beneficial forgut health, boosting immunity against illnesses, slowing down the effects of aging, protecting against cancer and heart disease, and preventing deficiencies that can lead to many negative reactions.

2. Can Help Support Heart Health

Plant-based foods provide help tolower inflammation, a root cause of heart disease, and also providedietary fiber. Research has shown that theres often a link between eating a high-fiber diet and having increased protection against high cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes. (3)

One study published in theJournal of American College of Cardiologyfound thathigher intake of a plant-based diet index rich in healthier plant foods is associated with substantially lower coronary heart diseaserisk. (4) Another study published in 2015 in thePermanente Journalfound evidence that vegetarian diets can be beneficial for significantly lowering body mass index, high obesity rates, high blood pressure, high triglyceride and cholesterol levels, and diabetes risk.(5)

3. May Help with Weight Loss

People who eat a high amount of vegetables and fruit daily tend to have the best protection against weight gain as they age. Because plant-based foods like fresh veggies and fruit are very low in calories yet are high in terms of volume and therefore take up lots of room in your stomach, they are filling and keep you from over-eating.Plant-based (or mostly plant-based) diets are tied to a lowered risk for obesity, lower BMI status and reduced complications related to obesity, such as heart problems or metabolic syndrome. (6)

4. Provides More Digestive Enzymes

If you choose to include a good amount raw foods in your diet, youll benefit from obtaining higher amounts of enzymes that serve many purposes. When cooked over a certain temperature, enzymes found in raw food often become destabilized. Enzymes are important because they are needed to break down the food into smaller nutritional units that the body can handle.

Some nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids, are destroyed or altered when food is cooked at high temperatures or for long periods. Eating too much cooked food creates waste in the body that cannot even be used, which in turn may have a clogging effect on the body. While the pancreas and other cells make enzymes in the body, raw foods provide more enzymes for the body to use. In a diet of purely cooked foods, the pancreas and other organs may become overworked due to how there is no external enzyme source.

Raw foodists believe that because raw plant foods contain biophotons, or sun stored energy, they contribute to important processes in the body. If your diet provides adequate calories overall and is balanced, then the more biophotons you consume the more you should experience having higher levels of energy and improved moods.

5. Eliminates Additives and Byproducts Found in Cooked Meat

When meat is cooked at high temperatures, certain chemical compounds called heterocyclic amines can be created that may have carcinogenic effects. Recently published research has pointed to a link between consumption of highly processed meat products and higher risk for cancer. The higher the cooking temperature of meat, the greater chance of these byproducts being created.

Additionally, vegetarian diets eliminate processed meats, which are also considered carcinogenic. These include foods like packaged cold cuts, hot dogs, salami and cured meats. On the other hand,plant-based proteinsoffer amino acids (the specific types and amount differs from food to food) in addition to fiber and antioxidants, but without the carcinogenic effects.

6. Is Sustainable and Helpful for the Environment

Many people choose to reduce the amount of meat, fish and other animal foods in their diets in order to lower their carbon footprints. Plant foods are lower on the food chain and require less natural resources, such as water and others, to produce. According to a report in theAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutrition, manufacturing animal foods requires a higher proportion of water, land, fossil fuels and energy than most plant foods do. (7)

Including more vegetables and other plant foods in your diet is definitely a great idea. But there are also some disadvantages to vegetarian and vegan diets that you should be aware of. Below are the downsides to having a completely plant-based diet or one that includes only little amounts of animal proteins:

My diet is personally about 70 percent plants and 30 percent animal-derived foods. I usually consume about70 percent raw plant-based foods, and 30 percent of my diet is organic grass-fed beef, organic pastured dairy, wild-caught fish (wild-caught salmon is my favorite), and free-range organic poultry and eggs. Ive tried a number of diets, including vegetarian, vegan and pescatarian, and have found I really feel the best following this ratio. I call this ratio the healing foods diet and have also found this to have the best results with my patients, as well. Heres the new, updatedhealing foods shopping listso you can have an extensive food guide to follow. If its on the list, its good to go.

1. Eat a Variety of Vegetables and Fruits

It might be easy for you to eat fruit daily, but what about getting enough vegetables? Most health authorities recommend eating at least three to five servings of veggies per day. Here are some tips for sneaking more veggies and fruit into your meals:

2. Consume More Raw Plant Foods

As mentioned above, many people can benefit from adding more raw foods to their diets, assuming their digestive systems tolerate them well. You dont have to follow a strict raw vegan food diet to reap the benefits of eating more plant foods. Raw foods in the context of a vegetarian/vegan diet consist of those that have not been heated over 46 C or 115 F. Some of the best raw foods to include in your diet often include:

Other foods and ingredients that are minimally processed and healthy additions include:

3. Get Enough Plant-Based Protein and Fats

To make sure youre eating enough protein and calories in general, dont skimp on plants that offer amino acids and healthy fats. How much protein should you aim to eat each day? While it might be possible to get away with less, I personally think its best to divide your body weight in half and eat about that many grams of protein per day. Some of the best plant proteins include natto, spirulina, tempeh, nutritional yeast, green peas, lentils, quinoa and amaranth.

To make sure youre gettingenough healthy fats, include at least one of the following in each main meal: nuts and seeds (like almonds, walnuts, hemp, chia or flax), avocado, olive oil, coconut oil or coconut cream/milk, and butter or ghee if you include dairy products. Even if your diet is overall low in fat, try to still get about 20 percent or more of your daily calories from healthy sources of fat.

What Size Needle for Testosterone Cypionate Injections …

Mar, 14th 2019 5:46 pm, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

It would be totally impractical for most patients to have to visit their TRT doctor or clinic on a regular and frequent basis to receive their testosterone cypionate injections. This is why so many men find it truly empowering to master things like knowing what size needle for testosterone cypionate injections works best for them and understanding how to select and the rotate the injection sites that they will be using. Without a doubt, being able to safely and successfully administer your own treatments provides you with the satisfaction of taking personal responsibility for extending and enhancing your health and vitality. And the rewards of effective treatment are even more satisfying.

But before you can experience the full range of benefits from your treatment program, you will need to learn what the best injection sites work best for you. If you will be primarily giving them to yourself, then an easy to see and reach site such as your thigh muscle will probably work best, as it does for many men. The gluteal muscles of the buttocks are viable sites, but some men find this area hard to reach; however, many adults who chose this site have a family member who will help them with their injection. Some patients include the deltoid muscles a part of their regular rotation of testosterone injections sites but all patients are urged to discuss their intended site choices with their doctors prior to administering their treatments, as their may be special precautions associated with the regular use of particular sites to be aware of.

All of the procedures, including what size needle for testosterone injections to use, are easy to manage when you have been provided with the correct information, but it is a mistake to take any of them too lightly. Remember that what you will be injecting into your body is a powerful hormonal substance but one that must be handled carefully and properly in order to produce the desired therapeutic results. Because you will be injecting your prescribed dosage directly into your muscle tissue, doing it correctly is something that should always be taken seriously. At Nexel Medical, we certainly do and this is why our clinical advisors are always available and happy to provide guidance whenever our patients feel that they require it.

DailyMed – CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN- chorionic gonadotropin

Mar, 14th 2019 5:44 pm, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a polypeptide hormone produced by the human placenta, is composed of an alpha and a beta sub-unit. The alpha sub-unit is essentially identical to the alpha sub-units of the human pituitary gonadotropins, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), as well as to the alpha sub-unit of human thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). The beta sub-units of these hormones differ in amino acid sequence. Chorionic gonadotropin is obtained from the human pregnancy urine. It is standardized by a biological assay procedure.

Chorionic Gonadotropin for Injection, USP is available in multiple dose vials containing 10,000 USP units with accompanying Bacteriostatic Water for Injection for reconstitution. When reconstituted with 10 mL of the accompanying diluent each vial contains:

Chorionic gonadotropin 10,000 units

mannitol 100 mg

benzyl alcohol 0.9%

water for injection q.s.

Buffered with dibasic sodium phosphate and monobasic sodium phosphate. Hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide may have been used for pH adjustment (6.0-8.0). Nitrogen gas is used in the freeze drying process.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) – Metro Health Hospital

Test Overview

The human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test is done to check for the hormone hCG in blood or urine. Some hCG tests measure the exact amount. Some just check to see if the hormone is present. HCG is made by the placenta during pregnancy. The test can be used to see if a woman is pregnant. Or it can be done as part of a screening test for birth defects.

HCG may also be made by certain tumors, especially those that come from an egg or sperm. (These are called germ cell tumors.) HCG levels are often tested in a woman who may have tissue that is not normal growing in her uterus. The test also may be done to look for molar pregnancy or a cancer inside the uterus. Several hCG tests may be done after a miscarriage to be sure a molar pregnancy is not present. In a man, hCG levels may be measured to help see if he has cancer of the testicles.

An egg is normally fertilized by a sperm cell in a fallopian tube. Within 9 days the fertilized egg moves down the fallopian tube into the uterus. It then attaches (implants) to the wall of the uterus. After the fertilized egg implants, the growing placenta starts releasing hCG into your blood. Some hCG also gets passed in your urine. HCG can be found in the blood before the first missed menstrual period. This can be as early as 6 days after the egg implants.

HCG helps to keep your pregnancy going. It also affects the development of your baby (fetus). Levels of hCG go up fast in the first 14 to 16 weeks after your last menstrual period. They are the highest around the 14th week following your last period. They then go down gradually. The amount that hCG goes up early in pregnancy can give information about your pregnancy and the health of your baby. Soon after delivery, hCG can no longer be found in your blood.

More hCG is released in a multiple pregnancy, such as twins or triplets, than in a single pregnancy. Less hCG is released if the fertilized egg implants in a place other than the uterus, such as in a fallopian tube. This is called an ectopic pregnancy.

The level of hCG in the blood is often used as part of a screening for birth defects in a maternal serum triple or quadruple screening test. These tests are usually done between 15 and 20 weeks of pregnancy to check the levels of three or four substances in a pregnant womans blood. The triple screen checks hCG, alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), and a type of estrogen (unconjugated estriol, or uE3). The quad screen checks these substances and the level of the hormone inhibin A. The levels of these substances-along with a womans age and other factors-help the doctor figure out the chance that the baby may have certain problems or birth defects.

In some cases, screening tests are combined in the first trimester to look for Down syndrome. This screening test uses an ultrasound to measure the thickness of the skin at the back of the fetuss neck (nuchal translucency). It also includes a blood test for the levels hCG and a protein called pregnancy-associated plasma protein A (PAPP-A). This test works about as well as the second-trimester maternal serum quad screening.footnote 1

HCG urine tests are usually used for regular pregnancy testing. The test does not measure the exact amount of hCG, but it shows if hCG is present. Home versions of this test are easy to find and buy.

A test for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is done to:

If a blood sample is collected, you do not need to do anything before you have this test.

If a urine test is done, the first urine of the day is generally the best to use because it has the highest level of hCG. A urine sample collected at least 4 hours after you last urinated will also have high amounts of hCG.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) may be measured in a sample of blood or urine.

The health professional drawing blood will:

If possible, collect a sample from the first urine of the day.

The blood sample is taken from a vein in your arm. An elastic band is wrapped around your upper arm. It may feel tight. You may feel nothing at all from the needle, or you may feel a quick sting or pinch.

You may feel anxious while you wait for results of an hCG test done to check the health of your baby.

In most cases, there is no pain with collecting a urine sample.

There is very little chance of a problem from having a blood sample taken from a vein.

Collecting a urine sample does not cause problems.

The human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test is done to measure the amount of the hormone hCG in blood or urine to see if a woman is pregnant. HCG may also be measured to see if cancer of the ovaries or testicles is present.

These numbers are just a guide. The range for normal varies from lab to lab. Your lab may have a different range. Your lab report should show what range your lab uses for normal. Also, your doctor will evaluate your results based on your health and other factors. So a number that is outside the normal range here may still be normal for you.

South Beach Diet: Phase 1 Explained – Mighty Diets

Mar, 13th 2019 6:48 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

Phase One of the SouthBeach Diet: The South Beach Diet is a popular weight loss program based around the monthly delivery of their preparedlow-carb, high protein, portioned meals together with drinking lots of water and an active lifestyle. (reviews / cost)

The goal of the diet is to cut carbs and cravings while teaching you to be a mindful eater, so that making healthy food choices becomes a habit.

Why a low carb diet? Research shows that cutting carbs is an effective way to curb your hunger and cravings and lose weight quickly. When you eat a low carb diet, your body starts to burn fat (instead of carbs) as fuel.

Lets start at the very beginning,a very good place to start Do-Re-Mi, The Sound of Music

There are 3 phases in the South Beach Diet, and it all starts with the all-important Phase 1, aka The 7-Day Reboot.

Phase 1 is the foundation of the South Beach Diet, and it does three important things:

Normally your body burns carbs as its primary fuel source. When youre on a low-carb diet, like South Beach, your body turns to its second option, which is fat. So, when you burn fat, you lose weight. Simple, right?

The meals delivered by The South Beach Diet are central to achieving these goals, but youll also compliment the prepared meals with fresh food from the grocery store. You should also drink 8 cups of water a day(64 oz.) during Phase 1.

*View their featured promotion, or view all coupons

Heres how eating during Phase One works:

During Phase One youll eat 6 smaller meals per day. These meals consist of:

All of the daily side-dishes and snacks come from the South Beach Diet list of approved lean proteins, healthy fats, and non-startchy vegetables.

WOMENcan select: (per day)

MEN can select: (per day)

Here are some of the approved foods that you can eat during Phase 1:

Proteins are central to the Southbeach Diet and the building blocks of muscle and healthy bones. Protein also digests slowly, making you feel fuller for a longer time. Remember to select lean or trimmed cuts of beef, pork, and poultry whenever possible. Here are the approved proteins for Phase 1:(*Portions: 3 oz. unless noted.)

DAIRY: (*Portion: 1 cup unless noted. Limit to 2 servings per day) buttermilk Greek yogurt (full-fat, plain, 5.3 oz. )Kefir (plain)milk (whole or soy)

*So, how big of a potion is 3 oz of meat? For cooked beef, pork, poultry, and fish, its about the size of a deck of cards! For ground meat, its a little smaller than your fist.

Healthy fats keep you feeling full and help to curb cravings. Healthy fats include monounsaturated fats like olive oil, avocado, and almonds plus polyunsaturated fats like walnuts, sunflower seeds, and fresh salmon. (Portions: nuts & seeds = 1oz., limit to 1 serving per day)

OILS & FATS:(*Portion: 1 Tbsp.)canolacoconut (extra-virgin)cornflaxseedgrapeseedolive oil (extra-virgin)peanutsafflowersesamesoybeansunflowerwalnut

Phase 1 limits your vegetables to the non-starchy variety. (sorry, no potatoes, peas, or corn!) These are great as a side-dish or a snack all by themselves. Try to avoid added sugar or salt with canned or frozen veggies.(*Portions: 1 cup raw, or 1/2 cup cooked.)

During Phase 1 you are also allowed up to 3 extras. A lot of these are condiments, but can be anything that has fewer than 35 calories and 3g of carbs. Here are a few:

So, why do they ask you to avoid certain foods? Eating too many sugary and processed carbs has thrown your metabolism and blood sugar out of balance, and the goal of Phase 1 is to fix that. You could call Phase 1 a reboot. By avoiding certain foods, Phase 1 helps get your body and glycemic index back on track.

In Phase 1 you should avoid:

Here are some popular foods not allowed during Phase 1:

Healthy eating isnt enough for any weight loss program, as exercise is a keycomponent. Thats why The SouthBeach Diet asks you to be active and move your body for at least 30 minutes a day. Get that heart rate up!This exercise could be anything from taking a brisk walk or riding your bike, to a yoga or Zumba class, or swimming.

Tip: Walking your dog after work is a great way to detach from the stress of the day, and your brain loves routines!

Do you ever eat at your desk or while driving? Thats not good! Neither is eating too fast, as it causes you to each too much. Phase 1 encourages you to be aware of food, and slow down your eating. Put your phone away, relax and enjoy each bite.

Stress is a major reason why people eat too fast and make bad choices. During Phase 1 the goal is to eat mindfully andend your bad eating habits.

Phase One of the South Beach diet can be considered a reboot. Its 7 days (used to be 14) of relatively strict rules to clean out the junk in your system and ending your bad eating habits. Phase 1 prepares you for healthy, structured eating thats low in carbs and high in protein that will result in sustainable weight loss.

As you can guess, Phase 1 is followed by Phase 2, which is the long-term weight loss phase lasting until you reach your goal weight.
