pegan food pyramid

Here is an adapted food pyramid showing you what you should have on your plate.

  • Unlimited vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, kale, onions, garlic, avocado, carrots, cabbage)
  • 3-5 servings of fat (olive oil, other vegetables and nut oils, avocado, cheese, eggs, yoghurt)
  • 4-6 Oz of protein (fish, seafood, chicken),
  • ½ cup of starch veggies (sweet potato, zucchini, eggplant, pumpkin),
  • ½ cup of fruit (watermelon, pineapple, apple, pear, berries, banana),
  • ½-1 cup of grains, unlimited herbs and spices and
  • A moderate amount of alcohol (avoid if you are trying to lose weight).

Here is an example of a Mediterranean weight loss meal plan

• Breakfast:
– 1 hardboiled egg
– Chocolate banana smoothie (1 banana, ½ cup unsweetened almond mil, ½ cup crushed ice, 1.5 Tbsp cocoa, 1.5 tbsp honey)
• Lunch:
– Greek salad
– 85g deli turkey
• Dinner:
– Pan-roasted fish w/ Gremolata (lemon zest, garlic, parsley)
– Broccoli w/ ginger and garlic
– ¼ cup cooked brown rice
• Snacks:
– 24 almonds
– 2 Tbsp hummus w/ chopped veggies

Other diets that have gained popularity are intermittent fasting which has multiple health benefits. There are several ways of approaching it which include:

  • 24 hours fast once a month or once a week
  • 16-18 hour fast weekly
  • 12 hour fast overnight
  • The easiest and most common method is fasting for 16-18 hours and eating for 6-8 hours. It will work for weight loss if one does not overeat in these 8 hours and sticks to healthy eating during this period. Combining keto diet with intermittent fasting provides further health benefits and speeds up weight loss.

An example of a Keto diet meal plan

  • Breakfast: Avocado and eggs
  • Snack: Spinach blueberry smoothie
  • Lunch: Cauliflower-cheddar soup
  • Snack: Nutty shortbread cookies
  • Dinner: Baked coconut hake, brussels sprouts casserole (approx. 77% fat, 19% protein, 4% carb)

When restricting calorie intake remember that you are not receiving enough nutrients and vitamins and supplements necessary to function optimally. Taking into consideration your general health, stage of life, chronic illnesses, previous medical history, lifestyle factors and exercise routine is very important in setting up a long-term healthy eating plan for life. Crash diets generally do not work because they are temporary and weight creeps back in once the diet is over. Changing your eating habits is more sustainable for a lifetime and especially important for your health, youthfulness, and general wellbeing. To change a habit, you must adhere to a new one consistently without a break for 3 weeks. Exercise and physical activity are also necessary for our wellbeing. To get into an exercise routine that you are more likely to commit to, choose an activity that you like, consider doing it with a friend or in a group and find the right time. My advice is to exercise first thing in the morning before you do anything else. This will kick start your day and boost your energy levels significantly. It is also a good idea to start with exercising every day for 3 weeks without a break. If your muscles are overtired, opt for a lighter workout routine. By committing to exercising every day you will not have to think whether today is a good day or bad day for exercise, you won’t have to assess your levels of tiredness for an exercise routine and you won’t have to think of other commitments on that day. If you stick to it for 3 weeks straight you won’t be able to live without exercise.
