- it is based on real food and it requires chewing of actual food - great! :)
- this meal plan is based on very healthy foods and requires no supplements - for example, omega-3 and other healthy fats are present in salmon (consumed twice per day) and omega-3 egg (used for making healthy pancakes). Various vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc are present in blackberries, tomatoes, and broccoli; low fat or cottage cheese is a great source of calcium and slow-digesting protein, etc.
- One might say that fat content is low. Well, this is diet, remember! Anyway, to increase fats, feel free to add a single tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in the dinner (or tablespoon of fish oils). That is 15g of additional fats and 135 of additional calories - 55g of fats instead of 40g and 1735 calories instead of 1600 calories.
- fruit content can be increased, but be sure to consume it in moderation, for example, consume 100g of kiwis around 13:00 - that would be 1g of protein, 11g of carbohydrates, 0.5g of fats, and 4g of fibers. But kiwis are loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and are kind of dessert!
