The Pritikin Diet – The Pritikin Diet Explained


the Pritikin principle is a low-fat diet
based on vegetables grains and fruits Nathan Pritikin started the plan his son
Robert Pritikin has tweaked the concept plant-based foods are still the staples
of his diet and it’s still very low in fat but Roberts latest book focuses on
something he calls the calorie density solution he says the concern is not
calories but rather how dense they are in any given food
the idea is to choose foods that are not calorie dense meaning they have
relatively few calories per pound for example a pound of raw broccoli has 130
calories without butter of course and a pound of chocolate chip cookies has
2,000 140 calories what you can meet with the Pritikin principal the Pritikin
principal has more than 20 pages of charts listing the caloric density of
many foods the plan is to eat food that has a lot of fiber and water such as
vegetables fruits beans and natural unprocessed grains Pritikin doesn’t have
you counting calories but you do have to know how to calculate the average
caloric density of your meal and then keep that average below a certain number
pretty can suggest we eat whole unprocessed and natural
carbohydrate-rich foods such as grains vegetables and fruit some processed
whole-grain foods such as oatmeal are okay on the plan even white flour pasta
is okay as long as you eat it with vegetables
other guidelines include you can eat small portions of lean beef chicken and
low-fat dairy products fish is fine preferably three servings per week of
salmon or other fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids avoid fried foods dressing
with fat and fatty sauces eat three meals a day plus two snacks stay active
and avoid salty foods artificial sweeteners are okay on the plan you will
lose weight on the Pritikin diet and it’s a diet that’s nutritionally rich
