The bread box diet

  1. The lunch box diet was developed by Simon Lovell, a personal trainer, once a fat boy who was teased with his weight himself. It is based on the diet that he would have used with great success with his clients and has been praised by many magazines and stars like Camoron Diaz swear by it. What exactly does this diet entail and what can you expect from it.

The basics of the bread box diet

  1. The diet is based on the concept of a well-stocked lunch box. The drum is filled with healthy food that you can eat out all day between the normal breakfast and the normal healthy evening meal. In fact, the diet's creator recommends snacking from the lunchbox every hour until you're satisfied. You are not supposed to eat until you are full. Of course, the diet does provide some examples of what is seen as a healthy evening meal and a healthy breakfast.

Recommended Food

  1. The focus of the diet is on the lunch box which should contain about 60% vegetables, 30% protein and 10% dressing for over the vegetables. When filling the lunch box you use delicious vinaigrettes, herbs, seeds and grated cheeses so that your lunch gets extra flavor, and you feel more satisfied after eating. Grilled pieces of chicken, fatty fish and small pieces of cheese are ideal as snacks.

Example of a lunch box diet day

Disadvantages of the bread box diet

  1. The entire book is quite pricey compared to the size of the book (approximately 10 pages) and the information it contains. However, this is a one-off expense, while this diet does not require expensive supplements or special food substitutes. There are no indications given about the exact size of the portions so there is still much to be eaten too many calories are consumed. The number of calories taken can still increase considerably and exceed the consumption of calories if you do not pay attention to the food that you eat at breakfast and dinner. Because carbohydrates from bread, rice and pasta are not recommended, while they still contain vitamins B in particular, a shortage can arise. Moreover, the omission of these types of food still reduces the combination possibilities.
