How to choose a healthy weight loss plan

Bill Clinton is the new poster child for a healthy weight loss plan. Due to his many heart problems, Clinton is now on a very strict vegan diet sponsored by Drs. Esselstyn and Ornish. A heart healthy diet will consist of many fruits, vegetables and legumes. Best diet plans do not have to be extreme as the one, Clinton is on, but it does need to be without meat, dairy and sugar.

Heart healthy weight loss diets

Bill Clinton is on a very simple diet plan patterned after Drs. Esselstyn and Ornish's books on reversing heart disease. Clinton recently had more heart problems and he decided to become vegan not to just lose weight, but to live long enough to see his grandchildren and help to raise them. Although, his goal was not to lose weight, he did lose 24 pounds. His diet food plan consisted of fruits, vegetables, legumes and a protein drink for breakfast. In this way, he got all his protein and did not have to worry about anything else. He also takes supplements. You should also take flax seed daily as it supports your heart with Omega 3 fatty acids. The Dr. Esselstyn Diet also does not allow nuts or avocados as they are high in fats. You are allowed to eat brown rice, wheat pasta and drink almond milk. This diet will help you to lose weight naturally.

Good diet plans online

There are many healthy diets online for weight loss. A quick loss diet is not healthy as it is temporary and will not help you to maintain your goal over your entire lifetime. Look for a weight program that promotes a vegetarian type lifestyle or one with lean protein only. High protein diets are not healthy diets. Studies have shown that people on the high protein and low carb diets will lose the weight at the same rate as a low fat diet plan, but high protein diets are bad for the heart. Saturated fat will clog your arteries and in fact, the diet Bill Clinton is on, allows no oils at all, not even olive oil. One of the healthiest diets on the web is the Mediterranean Diet. Free online diets include many plans that are healthy. To find good diet plans, look for the ones that avoid dairy or use low fat versions. Look for diets void of all sugar, red meat, packaged foods and limit salt intake. If you follow a diet void of these harmful items, you will lose weight. In addition to a heart healthy diet, exercise for 30 minutes in a day. Try walking about your neighbourhood or go to your local mall and start walking.
