How to Diet

How to diet doesn't have to be about fancy (and expensive) diet programs. You can follow a simple over-arching plan for all your meals that allows you to eat a diet that's rich in beneficial nutrients and low in the things that are harmful...and you can have tasty meals, too!

What’s the healthiest diet to follow if you’re not a vegetarian?

Here's what top nutrition researchers found.

What does a healthy diet look like? Despite (or maybe because of) all the diet books, food pyramids, and expert advice, most people are still confused.
Yet we know which diets can lower the risk of heart disease, the major cause of death in the United States. Odds are, those same foods can also promote weight loss and help prevent diabetes and cancer. The Omniheart diet shows a lot of promise as a healthful diet.
The OmniHeart Trial tested three variations of a vegetable-and-fruit-rich diet in people who had pre-hypertension or hypertension—that is, anyone with blood pressure above 120 over 80.   Read More

A Quick History of The Omniheart Diet

The Omniheart diet has come a long way since the first study. Here is where it began.

What foods belong in your fridge if you want to protect your heart and cut your risk of diabetes and cancer at the same time?

That’s what is so great about the Omniheart diet; you can round out your core diet with good fats, good protein, or good carbs. Or you can switch from one to the other, depending on your mood.

Five Meatless BBQ Ideas that are Healthy and Tasty

When it comes to meatless BBQ ideas, be careful what you pick up for the grill.

Not too long ago, people with a vegetarian bent would have to either forgo the pleasure of digging into a juicy burger or put up with canned “meat analogs.” Those soggy, sponge- like blobs were enough to kill anyone’s desire to enjoy any meatless BBQ ideas.

But over the past couple of decades, as more people have stopped eating meat, food technologists have gotten better at spinning soy and other ingredients into meatlike burgers, balls, and “crumbles.” And food-industry chefs have gone far beyond meat, creating veggie and other patties that redefine the word “burger.”

You may be surprised to find out which foods cause gas.

Beans, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, milk, bran. Those are some of the usual suspects when people are trying to figure out, ahem, what foods cause gas. And those foods can cause gas.

But most of us overlook a growing source of the problem: inulin, or chicory root extract, one of the most popular ingredients in “high-fiber” foods.   Read More

Is Paleo Healthy? Should We Be Eating Like Cave Men and Women?

In modern terms, what does Paleo look like, and is a paleo diet healthy?

“If it wasn’t on a caveman’s menu, it shouldn’t be on yours.” That’s the basic premise of a Paleo diet. The question remains, as it should for any diet—is Paleo healthy?
