10 minutes of exercise a day
The Diet Calorie Counter



   
 

This food combining diet was developed by French nutritionist Michel Montignac.

Main idea:
To cut out food with a high glycaemic index rating, like potatoes, carrots and beetroot, which convert very quickly into sugar in the body, casuing overeating and weight gain in the long run.

How the diet works:
Certain food combinations are not allowed, such as fats and sugars, or animal protein and carbohydrates - so say goodbye to steak and chips! Sugars are only allowed two or three times a week, but fats and proteins can be eaten as often as you like, as long as they are eaten on their own.
Fruit can be eaten between meals and cereals and pulses must be unprocessed, to keep the GI rating down.

Sample day's food:
Breakfast:
-Fruit
-Wholemeal bread with low-fat margarine
-Decaffinated coffee
-Skimmed milk
Lunch:
-Avocado with vinaigrette
-Steak with green beans
-Cheese
-Still mineral water
Dinner :
-Salad or vegetable soup, without carbs like croutons or noodles.
-Mushroom omelette
-Green salad

-Fat-free fromage frais or yoghurt

 
 
 
  A very effective diet, which will not cause you to put the weight back on too quickly afterwards.
It's very easy-to-follow, which makes it perfect for busy people who are looking for a diet which won't take over their lives.
 
 
 
  A little too high in fat to be healthy in the long term, which could weaken the cardio-vascular system. Low in carbs and sugars, which will leave you tired.
