  • Will this diet help me lose weight: 60g low GI carbs for breakfast, 20g for lunch and 10g of carbs plus steak for dinner?

    Professionally speaking, I would never prescribe a diet like this to a client because it is excessively restrictive in nature.  To answer your question, you may very well lose weight on this diet, but, have you considered the following:

    • What is the likelihood that you'll be able to adhere to this in the long-term?
      Chances are that a diet that is so restrictive will not hold up in a month or even a years time.  So why bother starting something that you cannot see through?  Why not develop some healthy eating habits that will encourage a lower bodyweight for the rest of your life?
    • Are you performing any exercise?
      If not, you should consider developing an exercise regime to assist in weight loss and also promote general health.
      If you are planning on initiating an exercise regime, you need to plan for this with your nutritional intake.  Nutrition is vital in complimenting an exercise routine in order to promote recovery, muscle growth and aid fat loss.

    These are two major concerns with this diet.  Here are some other aspects that I would change with this approach:

    • 3 meals a day is far less effective than 5-6 meals a day.
    • There seems to be too much emphasis on "carbs" - what about all of the other nutrients such as proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients?  These are all sourced from a well balanced diet.
    • Eating steak 7 times a week is excessive and will almost certainly not provide you with all the necessary nutrients that can be sourced from other meats, poultry and fish.

    I would strongly recommend that you review an article we published on yo-yo dieting entitled "
