A way of making a diet that held more than 30 years

Wednesday, January 07, 2015

I became overweight when I was 19 years old
I looked at different diets like for instance The grapefruit Diet - And The Stewardess diet
I found out these diets had a lack of important nutrients..

Then I analysed a diet of 500 calories a day and supplemented with yogurt and other food to get more Calcium and phospat as this was absent in this diet
After 1½ year I had lost the 13 kg I needed to loose - I bicycled daily and also swam and did gymnastics.
My weight loss lasted more than 30 years - until I was 40 and put on 20 kg in a half year because of too low metabolism.

This principle of constructing the diet you would like can also be done by the mean of Spark People
You find an OK diet.
You track the diet into the nutrition tracker on a day you have not tracked your food. Click on other nutrition so you know the amount of minerals and vitamins in this diet too.
See the report of the day
Adjust your food plan with food that gives the minerals and vitamins and fiber and protein that is necessary.
Now you have your own food plan. This can be varied in many ways.

In order to find out which food has a lot of the minerals or vitamins or.. you can look on internet and find food listed after what they consist.
Here you can write ex Calcium - and you get a list of food with the most Calcium in etc.
