If you hate always feeling hungry on a diet, then try this one. This seven-day, low-fat plan has foods that fill you up but can still help you lose up to five pounds in a week.
What is it?
Are you sick of starving yourself to be thin? This new seven-day diet is specially designed to make sure you never feel hungry. You’ll hardly know you’re on a diet and you could lose up to five pounds in a week.
How it works
The foods in this diet all score highly on the satiety index (SI), a new
system that ranks foods according to how full they make you feel. For
example, according to the SI, oranges are more filling than bananas.
These foods are all low-fat too and because you’ll feel full, you won’t
feel the need to snack. The combination of these two things mean the
weight will drop off.
Who is it good for?
People with big appetites. People who’ve failed on other diets before because they were constantly hungry.
What are the drawbacks?
Most of the lunches and dinners contain meat so vegetarians will struggle.
What do you do?
Simply choose one breakfast, lunch and dinner every day for a week.
Snacking is not allowed although hopefully the meals will fill you up so
you won’t feel like feel the need to anyway. Drink at least eight large
glasses of water a day. Diet drinks and tea and coffee (no sugar) are
