Comparing my diet with others…

My diet given in Health Tips is a combination of diets given in the books I have read.

It is 100% Alkaline – Acid diet, 80% raw, 90% vegetarian and probably calorie restricted. I say probably because I have never bothered to weigh what I eat but I think it is less than the recommended 2000 calories per day.

Further it used to be low fat as recommended by Ornish, Mcdougall, Esselsteyn and Gould. In fact I started on an extremely low fat diet but after two weeks without fat I was truly tired the whole day. Not good. My body needed some fat so I added oily fish, fish oil and a handful walnuts and peanuts to my diet.

Current diet is greens, fruits, vegetables,legumes, beans, raw nuts and fish. Delicious!
