Why You shouldn’t Follow “Diet” Advice on Losing WeightPosted: October 27, 2019
After reading the article I realized their advice was awful. So I took the first day’s meal plan and used my Nutrition Program to analyze the calories and nutrition.
Here’s their menu for the day-
Breakfast- Pumpkin oatmeal, 2 tablespoons no-sugar-added peanut butter
Lunch- – Mexican stuffed peppers
Dinner- Easy fried rice with egg
Snack- Banana peanut butter ice cream
Notice there are a LOT of empty carbs and very little veggies, and no fruit?
The breakdown; 3875 calories! Yikes!
19% fat- ok
68% carbs- way too high as most of the calories come from dairy and rice (empty calories)
Protein- 13% – too low
Only 45% of needed B12 was achieved.
Other nutrients were met but only by taking in more than twice needed calorie!
