What Is The Flexitarian Diet?
What is the meaning of Flexitarian Diet? Flexitarian is the combination of “Flexible” and “Vegetarian” This new word was coined in 2009 by Dawn Jackson Blatner. She used this term in her book first time. The name of Dawn Jackson Blatner’s book was “The Flexitarian Diet”. She gives advice us not to eliminate meat to reap the health benefits associated with vegetarianism. And she says it is not problem to be a vegeterian or not. When the urge hits, go and eat a burger or steak. By eating less meat and more plants, it’s suggested that adherents to the Flexitarian Diet will not only lose weight but can improve their health, lowering their rate of cancer, diabetes and heart disease, and have a longer as a result.
If you have a diet list, you can add a few food groups to this list. Flexitarian Diet is adding five food groups to your diet. What are these groups? Proteins, grains, sugar-spice, dairy products and fruits-vegetables. (Protein group is non-meat foods. Like peas, beans, eggs etc.)
Flexitarian Diet provides us a five week meal plan which includes the snacks, breakfast, lunch and diner. You can adhere this diet plan or you can change the time of recipes weekly. It is a 3-4-5 regimen (Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner) 300 calories for breakfast, 400 calories for lunch and 500 calories for diner. And also 150 calories snacks for two times in a day. All of them are 1500 calories. You can tweak these numbers depending on your age, height, weight or activity. But not much, allow for fewer or slightly greater calories. And follow the diet plan in your own life fluency. Try most of the recipes for five weeks. Or test one of the recipes given every once in a while.
