A fruit and vegetable diet plan will work because they are vital components your body needs. You will always be more successful on any diet and feel much better when you are working with your body instead of against it.

One of the key points to remember about a plan such as this is that it is basically a raw vegetable diet.

Healthy Diet Menu

For a fruit and vegetable diet plan to work you must adhere to a few rules:

* You must not eat more than 50% fruit when on this type plan otherwise the calories from sugar in the fruit will supply enough energy so your body does not need to burn fat.

* You must eat all raw fruits and vegetables to get the essential enzymes and other nutrients your body needs. Cooking foods above 115 degrees Fahrenheit destroys these vital nutrients.

* Remember that organic fruits and vegetables are best because they contain more nutrients than those grown in depleted soils and/or using chemical fertilizers as a source of plant nutrition.

* It is best to use a nutrient packed liver detoxification program to detoxify the body, which will help it to burn fat more efficiently.

The more variety you have in the colors of the vegetables and fruits you consume will add more diversity of nutrients you receive from those foods.

Good vegetables and fruits come in a diverse array of hues and each contains various amounts of differing nutrients. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that you eat many different fruits and vegetables throughout your week.

This is an excellent suggestion because you do not know what your body needs to function at any given moment so you must strive to give it a little of everything to cover all your bases.…

Do You Want To Get Slim Or Not?

I run a private practice for people who want to lose weight and get slim and it still amazes me that I get around five call a day asking if I supply `slimming pills`. I`ve now stopped trying to educate callers as to why they`re wasting their time and money with these pills, because they just don’t want to know.

The funny thing is, since I`ve studied psychology, I`m now looking at the reason behind this. We all know that popping pills to suppress our appetite and make us whiz round like crazy little ants, is never going to keep the weight off long term, as we`re not changing anything about our lifestyle or attitude towards food. The minute we come off the pills, we start to put the weight back on.

So why do people still insist on taking this route, knowing that it`s doomed to fail?

Or continuously embark on diet after diet, when every previous attempt has failed.

Harsh as it sounds, the reason is because they`re not that serious about losing weight.

I`ve had many clients scowl with rage when I`ve dared to suggest that they`re not really bothered about being slim. Yes they come to the sessions because it`s what they feel they should be doing, perhaps because of pressure from a friend or a loved one. But when they don’t lose weight, they can rush home and tell their family that they “can`t lose weight no matter what they do.” Then they get the sympathy and the pressure is off because at least they`ve tried.

I mean getting slim is seriously hard work and it takes a lot of commitment, but most folk are just too lazy to follow it through. The first time they feel like an extra portion of fries …
