About The L.A Diet
In our country today, we have an epidemic proportion of obesity and chronic diseases stemming from excess body fat caused by our lifestyle choices. The American diet is far too excessive in processed and refined carbohydrates, animal protein, and fats and oils contributing to our nation's health concerns.
If you have been struggling with weight loss, dieting and gaining weight, you're not alone. Most people are misinformed, confused and choose desperate measures to lose weight. High protein diets, restricting calories, pills, potions or gimmicks as well as barbaric measures such as stomach stapling are just a few of the hopeless methods we attempt to lose weight. The end result is failure.
The human body is designed to eat real food, not to go hungry or suffer from the restriction of calories. It's also not designed for pre-packaged "diet" foods, high levels of protein or unnecessary surgeries. It's time to learn the facts about what truly works for long term success for achieving your ideal body weight while improving your health and well being. The L.A. Diet will educate you on nutrition and teach you how to lose weight effectively and forever.
"The L.A. Diet is the safest and most effective weight control program since Nathan Pritikin first exposed the fallacies of the highly processed, high-fat American Diet."
Director, Pritikin Research Foundation
MORE THAN JUST WEIGHT LOSS
The L.A. Diet eating plan is comprised largely of plant based foods encouraging generous portions of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Today, science has shown the importance of increasing your intake of these vital foods for the prevention of diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and many forms of cancer.
You'll be enjoying a variety of foods rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals (cancer fighting agents). Along with the bountiful selection of fruits and vegetables, the L.A. Diet includes nonfat dairy products and moderate portions of fish and shell fish, lean animal protein such as white meat poultry, and lean cuts of meat. Vegetarian substitutions can easily be made by including low fat, fortified non dairy products along with beans, peas, legumes and plant-based alternatives for animal protein.
WHAT MAKES THE L.A. DIET WORK
The L.A. Diet incorporates a life-style approach to eating which involves changing what you eat. Choosing foods low in fat, high in fiber, and low in caloric-density -- foods that have less concentrated calories based on their weight--is key to enjoying generous portions of food, filling you up, reducing appetite and hunger -- and helping you lose weight. The L.A. Diet is an eating plan that complements the way the human body is designed to utilize foods. We need complex carbohydrates for energy, moderate protein for building and repairing tissue, and sufficient amounts of fat for functions such as absorption of fat soluble vitamins.
In addition to changing what you eat, The L.A. Diet encourages getting regular exercise--not hard and strenuous, but rather fun and moderate--a program you look forward to enjoying each day. Just like choosing healthier foods, physical activity becomes a natural part of your new life-style. Always check with your physician before starting an exercise program.
