While I was in Washington I read, 'The Full Plate Diet'. It encourages a high fiber diet to fill you up and so you eat fewer calories. The goal is 40g of daily fiber, which seems like a lot considering the average American eats 10g fiber daily. Yesterday I was online looking for recipes and menu ideas. Here is an example of breakfasts with 18 - 20 grams of fiber; it looks like a huge breakfast to me.
You can read 'The Full Plate Diet' pdf version online for free.
And join the 'The Full Plate Diet' non-profit organization for free
I looked in Spark to see if there was a 'The Full Plate Diet' group, but no, not yet.
I spent an hour watching this Big Meets Bigger Mississippi (got the link from BOOKWORM27S's blog)
I am looking at a new diet plan rather than dusting off South Beach. It's time for a change and a new kick of motivation to go with it. I have been spending a lot of time in Washington this summer, away from the phone, TV and internet. We are in the mountains and our cell phone is out of range unless we are down by the golf course. For wifi we can cafe sit and at night we watch a recorded episode of The Good Wife. I like being unplugged and don't miss the techie toys. However now that I am home I am busy researching the new diet, etc. I started sparkcoach, but may not be continue with it. I am away from the internet too much to really benefit from it, but I like it.
I hope you are enjoying summer!
