Diet Plan

Introduction to Diet Plans

Generally speaking, the diet plans you’ll get from official government agencies are difficult to grasp. You’ve seen these plans in diagrams of pyramids and plates. The encouragement is to fill yourself up on cereals washed down with milk.

The problem with the cereals is that although they’re carbohydrates, they’re high in energy density compared with vegetables and fruit.

Plus of course, when you eat cereals you usually smear them with fat and/or sugar of both. For instance very few people eat dry bread. The smear it with margarine, peanut butter and honey. If they eat pasta it’s smothered in fat and cheese.

The diet pyramids and plates don’t cater for the garbohydrates, (yep, that’s a ‘g’ not a ‘c’) the foods made from various combinations of fat, flour, sugar and potato. These are the foods that fatten you up, foods like bread, pasta, biscuits, cake, chocolate and ice cream … They are the foods that are the least nutritious. They ought to come with a warning, ‘Eat these foods at your peril.’

The Hourglass Diet will provide you with a simple description of the major food groups in our culture, which ones to eat more of and which ones to eat less of.

If you eat from the top of the Hourglass you’ll be eating food which nourishes the cells of your body without fattening you up.

If you eat from the bottom of the Hourglass you’ll definitely fatten yourself up and increase the risk of metabolic dysfunction.

The Hourglass Diet isn’t padded out with recipes, just straight forward advice on how to eat wisely in a junk food world.
