Another (old) diet?
Saturday, November 16, 2013
I keep on reading health articles and, today, I came across a diet I had never heard about, before: "The Rice Diet".
Did you know that it was developed in 1939 by Duke University (that's before I was born!) and has been successfully used to treat obesity ever since?
Check it out:
The initial phase only lets you eat about 800 calories/day, but considering that all you eat is rice and lots of fruit and vegetables, it's doable. The next phase elevates you to 1000 calories a day. I believe, as long as you eat less than 1200 calories/day, any diet would help you lose weight. Eventually, you will add 15 - 20% of protein, which will keep you satisfied a little longer. Just wondering how long you can stick with it? I would think that this type of diet would get pretty boring after a while.
