One of life's NecessitiesWhat is considered a good diet? Well, according to Newsweek, "eat right and get plenty of exercise" I believe that dieting alone wont be enough to keep you healthy, you have to also exercise. Dr. Walter Willett of Healthy Eating Pyramid used the best evidence to create a true pyramid. This is designed for a life long weight loss, not short-termed. First, you need to be able to get rid of junk food. People should eat vegetables. In addition, Swimming is the best way you can get rid of the calories. It is said that a diet built around high levels of complex carbohydrates protein intake is the best approach for an active athlete. The function of a protein is the growth, maintenance and repair of body tissue rather than as an energy source. By using it for energy it is inefficient, expensive and will later cause liver and kidney problems. Start the day by eating breakfast. Drink 100% fruit juice with breakfast. Spruce the breakfast with a banana or a handful of berries with the cereal, yogurt, waffles, or pancakes. In addition, take a piece of fruit to munch on during the comute.

Here is a sample of the menu for the first day for breakfast. It was tea, ½ grape, 1 slice of toast, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. For lunch it was tea, ½ cup of tuna, 1 slice of toast or cheese. For dinner, it was 2 oz of meat, 1 cup of string beans, 1 cup of carrots or beets, 1 small apple, and 1 cup of vanilla ice cream. However when it came down to my own experiences, the menu was similar but not the exact. On the first day for breakfast I had the given. I felt full and completely satisfied. For lunch, I had 1 toast and 2 ½ slices of ham, and ½ grapefruit. Because I was really hungry from before, this meal seemed very meager to me and it did not satisfy much. Around 3 18, I couldn't stand it much longer and I began to eat my dinner. I had 2 teaspons of donkats sauce, 1 cup of rice, 5 ounces of beef, and 1 kids scoop of choclate chip ice cream.
