    Diet Plans for Fitness Freaks

    I learned about the best diet plan this year.  It's called Silhouette Solution.  It consists of a large variety of food products - bars, cereal, oatmeal, soup, shakes...just to name a few.  Each one of these has around 150 calories, 15 grams of protein, low fat, little or no sugar, all other nutrients perfectly balanced.  Based on the "grazing principle" you eat one of these every 2 to 3 hours - they taste good, are satisfying and you never feel hungry or deprived.  Then you have a regular diet.  It was so easy - I lost 15 lbs in around 5 weeks - and I've kept it off!
    You can find out more about it (and about the great business plan that you can get involved with also) at

    I am not a fitness freak, but I think that the principles involved with portion control work for just about anyone. Since the beginning of the year to date I have lost 31 lbs. and have gone from 218 lbs to my current weight of  187 lbs.. I've tried Atkins, South beach you name it but I have found that eating a variety of foods in the proper portions works best. Let's face it, counting calories is a bit of a drag sometimes, this is why I use the pvc plates that come with Healthy Choice or Marie Calender meals to make my dinners. It is pretty difficult to get over 600 calories onto one of these trays(may be a banana split).

    If you're a fitness fanatic, you'll need plenty of energy from carbohydrates, and the building blocks of muscle repair and growth from protein.

    Eat small portions every 3-4 hours. Make sure you're getting some protein and some carbs in every meal/snack.

    Don't fall for excessively low carb diets - they're one of the most unhealthy fads in a world of crazy and destructive diets. Better still, avoid any short term 'diet' and focus on healthy eating all the time.

    Carbs to focus on are complex carbs such as sweet potato, bulgar wheat, brown rice, wholemeal bread (in moderation), porridge oats.

    Protein sources to focus on are fish, lean meat, eggs (these last two in moderation!), skimmed milk, quinoa.

    And eat tons of veg! As wide a variety as you can. Some raw. Snack on raw carrots, raw celery, raw baby sweetcorn, raw young leaf spinach.

    As for fruit, eat 3 portions a day. The golden rule is 'more veg than fruit' as the simple sugars in fruit can cause unstable insulin reactions and eventually convert to fat if you eat in excess.

    Last but not least, fellow fitness fanatics, drink plenty of water between meals, small amounts each time, around 1.5 - 2 litres a day, depending on the weather, your body size etc. Water hydrates you (obviously!) and good hydration is vital for optimum physical performance.

    Some people find it helpful to create their meals using a planning process. A simple and popular one is the Plate method. Using this method at lunch and dinner , you would divide your plate into sections like so.

    1/2 with non-starchy vegetables, 1/4 with lean, low-fat protein and 1/4 with carbohydrates
