Diet Meal Plan-Which One Should You Choose?

Jul 17, 2008
As always when it comes to dieting, you always have to deal with a diet meal plan. What for? This will help guide you on which food to eat to become a healthier you, what else? There are a lot of diet meal plans available but the problem lies on which one you should choose. You have to consider greatly as to whether or not a specific diet meal plan is good for you or not since a diet meal plan comes in varied looks, forms and purposes, thus help you come up with the desired results. Here are some categories from which you should categorize your perfect diet meal plan under.

High Protein Meal Plan

As the name suggests, expect that this meal plan focuses on giving you protein. With this, you should also expect to find a lot of lean meat, such as beef and other foods such as eggs. Since protein has the main function of building and repairing cells, this kind of meal plan is very good if you have the main goal of building muscles or of gaining weight.

Vegetable Meal Plan

This kind of meal plan is a bit similar to that of a vegan diet, but is entirely different in the fact that you can eat meat as opposed to that of a vegetarian's diet where the only meat that is allowed to be eaten is fish. In the vegetable mal plan, you are expected to eat more vegetables in a meal or snack than anything else. In other words, your meal should consist 80% (some are 90%) vegetables and the rest is up to you (sometimes).

A vegetable meal plan is to set to provide you with the necessary nutrients (plus vitamins and minerals) found only in vegetables such as folic acid in green leafy veggies. Also, since vegetables are high in fiber, this is very good for those who are on a diet to become slim. The fiber content will give any individual the cleansing that she needs inside and out. Not just this, but vegetables also will help lose weight in the sense that it will make the person's appetite decrease in the sense that once person eats it, he or she will immediately feel full.

Fruit Meal Plan

If you love fruits, then you will really love this kind of diet meal plan. This contains high contents of vitamins that you will find it unnecessary to take anymore vitamin supplements. Not just this, but there are a lot of fruits that are rich in fiber and antioxidants, which by now you know will help cleanse you off the toxins. A third very good point of this meal plan is that fruits also contain fluids which you need for hydration.

However, with the fruit meal plan, you should not take it as it is. Obviously, it does not contain all the necessary nutrients and minerals that your body needs. If you take it alone or make it as your staple daily food, you will end up being deficient in two or more nutrients. This kind of diet especially encourages you to eat meat and other protein rich foods. Thus, it is not surprising that in the long run, a fruit diet is more of a complimentary diet than a staple one.
