Diet Fusion

We just finished the 4 week weight loss bootcamp call series, and we are getting some nice feedback from old PT family members as well as new ones. And it is a family- many of you are Facebook friends and have joined our various Facebook groups.

One core idea I have been working on is this idea of "Diet Fusion" and it is something we talk about also in the tip of the day email series.

I am very curious to hear "what has worked for you"- we are all so unique that we almost need diets that are totally crafted for each of us.

Weight watchers combined with South Beach Diet.
I limited my carb intake, especially the unhealthy kind, and kept the points to WW limit. It forced me to eat more veggies, and now I love veggies.

I'm going to combine Joel Furhman's Diet with Dr.D'adamo's Genotype Diet. I'll update in a month when I can comment more on how it's working out :)

I follow guidelines from Dr. Fuhrman on eating fruits and veggies and limiting nuts and starches, but when I need comfort food I usually make a recipe from the McDougalls (link.)

Diet fusion

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. this tip of the day turned the light bulb on for me. I have always found that The Zone works for me.....however, hearing about diet fusion I have several ideas in my head about how to "tweek" the zone to work better for me. I've always loved veggies...but asided from them sitting on the side of the plate, i've never seen them as the focal point of my meal. I always thought it had to be my protein.

I saw Joel Fuhrman on television the other day and something about him sparked my interest. I'm glad that I took 5 minutes to listen to what he had to say and now seeing this tip, my motivation is up another notch again!

2 tips that work for me, learned from weight watchers

Wendy's is a great fast food choice. Try a small chili on top of a side salad. Delicious and, if I remember correctly, 2 points.
Fat free pudding and light cool whip. I know, it's just a chemical jumble, but if you are crazy for something sweet, you can get it for just 1 point.

Eat to Live has been working well for me, but not as strict as Dr. Fuhrman lays it out. I add a little more starch some days. And some days most things are cooked rather than having enough 'raw'.

I have a very (very!) demanding schedule, and if I don't have the back-up plan of being able to have a bowl of high-fiber cereal for dinner on occasion (instead of chopping a lot of stuff for a salad, or doing a quick stir fry) even if I've already had the usual amount of starch earlier, I couldn't make it work. Plus, in trying to lower my cholesterol (which is succeeding on this plan), I try to keep things like oatmeal and barley in my diet as much as possible without adding it to the point where it's keeping me from losing. So...long story short, I'm probably somewhere between Fuhrman and McDougall with respect to my daily intake.

I do a bit of Eat to Live, but in reality, it's more like Eat for Health. I do eat whole wheat bread, occasionally a low fat yogurt, some wine now and then. I eat a lot*** of salads, fruits, soups (healthy, homemade), and never butter, normal desserts 9cookies, cake, pie). I have a lemon italian ice now and then. I just started doing this full time. I've lost 3 lbs in just over a week. I do exercise daily, running/walking combo. By using the fusion style, I am trying to find some combo of healthy eating I can live with for quite awhile as I have about 30 lbs to lose by summer if possible, and then I want to be able to live this way and stay at goal weight.

Little bit Atkins, little bit Specific Carbohydrate diet, little bit Blood Type Diet...
Low carb, low lactose, grain free, sugar free, lots of veggies, lots of protein, and some delicious fat- cream, butter, cheese... No cravings, no hunger, steady weight loss, delicious food. So easy to maintain.

Diet Fusion - Weight Watchers

Hi, I just read the article about diet fusion and saw where you talked about weight watchers. I have recently re-joined weight watchers and their program has changed. They no longer use the Momentum program and they no longer look at calories, fat, and fiber to determine point values. These values now come from protein, carbs, fiber, and fat. Most all fruits and veggies are 0 points. Just an update. Thanks for everything.
