Cardiologist Suggests a 5-Day Diet is a Safe Way to Lose 15 Pounds
Diet is an important part of our lifestyle. For those of us who are overweight, those extra pounds greatly increase our health risks – including risks of diabetes, gallbladder disease, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and even a wide range of cancers. Of course, living at a healthy weight lowers your risks tremendously.
The diet below was designed by a European cardiologist. The primary source of protein on this diet are eggs, we recommend that you purchase organic eggs. Same is true for the fresh fruits you choose.
This is a very simple diet. The breakfast each day is the same: 1 piece of your favorite fruit, anything but grapes or bananas. A serving of blackberries or blueberries will also provide needed antioxidants.
Lunch: 1 orange, a cup of yogurt, 1 egg
Dinner: 2 boiled eggs, 2 pieces of toast, ½ a cucumber or a small bowl of lettuce, 2 tomatoes
