Best of the Diets

As an undergraduate, I studied anthropology. Since then, I’ve always been fascinated by the customs of other cultures around the world, including their eating habits.

Over the years, I’ve investigated literally hundreds of different diets, and the ones I’ve been most impressed with are the culinary cultures that include lots of fruits and vegetables, high intake of fiber, and little, if any, red meat.

Those are the diets that result in the lowest rates of heart disease.

And I’m not alone in recognizing that these are the best diets. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and Dr. Dean Ornish have also built diets around this concept, and have demonstrated that plant-based eating can drive down cholesterol and reverse heart disease.

But while their diets are very effective, they are also very strict. I have found that many patients have a tough time staying on the Esselstyn and Ornish plans.

When I created my diet, I looked for a common sense, “middle road” approach.

Of course, I wanted to create a diet that was plant-based, and would translate into the type of dramatic weight loss my patients needed.

But I also wanted to incorporate features that would leave people feeling full and less likely to quit the diet.

So I created my Life Plan Diet by combining the best features of other diets on the market.

That way, it not only achieves the weight loss that you are looking for, it also keeps you satisfied enough to develop permanent new eating habits.
