Kickstart A New Diet

Dr. Neal Barnard, a nutrition researcher at George Washington University School of Medicine, will talk about his book, "21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health," Apr. 25 at a free seminar at 7 p.m. at Barnes and Noble, 4020 Sharon Road.

Barnard is challenging Charlotte residents to change their dietary ways and aims to help them do it. "We’ve found that the best way to lose weight is to jump into a completely healthy diet for three weeks," Dr. Barnard explains. "That means skipping meat and greasy foods, and focusing on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and beans for three weeks. During this test drive, people start to slim down, and they also see their cholesterol and blood pressure levels plummet. If they have diabetes, it often improves dramatically. Migraines and other pains often vanish."

Barnard recommends foods that help tame the appetite and boost metabolism. His program does not require calorie counting or even exercise. He provides three weeks of recipes, nutrition information, and cooking tips.

Barnard is president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and the author of 14 previous books on diet and health. For more information, contact Jill Eckart at 202-527-7337 or jeckart@pcrm.org.

As an advocate for fitness I tend to hear many excuses from people on why they are not dieting. One of the lamest of these is the old “I just don’t have time to cook healthy food”. While lack of time is a very valid reason to not want to cook every day for dinner and lunch, this does not completely excuse the lack of trying. There are many ways to eat healthy without having to use more than a microwave. Learn more:

Wonderful post! Those 3 weeks of healthy eating can really help you a lot. And I reckon after the 3 weeks you won't even contemplate on eating greasy meat as you will accustomed to what you had been doing for 3 weeks.

Amazing how a healthy diet can make you lose those extra pounds, healthy eating does not even require you to go and starve yourself to death, a balanced meal is all it takes.

Weight loss diets are very important for a person trying to lose weight. While physical activities like exercising, swimming etc. help in losing weight, the importance of a healthy diet cannot be ignored. Because if you're not eating healthy, it can jeopardize your entire weight loss program. If you're consuming too much fat or calories while eating, you're not going to achieve your weight loss goals no matter how much you exercise. It is for this reason that various weight loss diets have become so popular over the years.
