Dieting the Rice Diet Way
3/25/2007 3:25:21 AM
I think Iíve been on every diet known to man and invented some myself. This week has been the start of my Rice Diet. Yes, there is such a thing and from what I understand itís been around forever. Though, I only heard of it last year, when I happened to read an issue of Womanís World (3-21-06). Just Google Rice Diet and youíll find the links for sites and books.
Does it work?
However, itís not always the diet that fails, but the dieter. I like eating and I enjoy the really good stuff that has sugar & fat in it. Those are the flavor additives to things like milk chocolate.
How does it work?
Basically, you eat three meals a day, limiting them to whole grains, starch, fruits, vegetables & a little non-fat dairy. One day a week you have protein.
My days donít vary in menu. So for a visual, here are several of my meal menus.
Breakfast Ė 1 slice whole wheat toast w/ 2 teaspoons all fruit jam, 1/2 banana, 8 ounces non-fat milk
Lunch Ė Ĺ cup brown rice, 1 cup fresh green beans, stir fried with non-stick spray, 2 cups watermelon
Dinner Ė 1 small baked potato, sliced onions, peppers and mushrooms stir fried with non stick spray then when starting to brown add water to make a brown juice & use on potato, Ĺ banana
Breakfast Ė Ĺ cup high fiber cereal w/ Ĺ cup non-fat milk, 2 cups cantaloupe
Lunch Ė 2 slices whole wheat bread w/ 1 egg omelet and a squirt of ketchup, 1 apple
Dinner Ė Ĺ cup brown rice mixed w/ Ĺ cup low-fat salsa, 2 plums
The claim is you can lose up to 40 pounds a month! Yet, I havenít gone a month to prove. I slip off track and occasionally have ice cream or chips or something. You also have to exercise to get the high number. Still, last year I lost 15 pounds in a month and this week, Iíve lost five pounds in 5 days.
If you have a successful diet, Iíd love to hear about it.
