The Flavor Point Diet
The Flavor Point Diet: What the Experts Say continued...
"Regardless of how you feel about the flavor specific satiety, it is a
nutritionally sound plan, balanced in nutrients, high in fiber, and should help
dieters eat a variety of nutritious foods, feel full, and lose weight,"
says American Dietetic Association spokesperson, Jeannie Moloo, who agrees that
1,300-1,500 calories per day of nutritious, high-fiber foods will help people
feel full and lose weight.
The recipes in the Flavor Point Diet book do require a time
commitment at the market and in the kitchen. And "some families may have a
tough time getting picky eaters to eat the foods featured in the book,"
says Moloo, a registered dietitian. Katz suggests parents be role models and
set good examples to help kids enjoy the taste of eating right.
Will a diet based on flavor themes help you lose weight? Moloo wants more
research. "Each person lost more than 16 pounds, which is encouraging, but
I also think it would be nice to see more rigorous studies on weight loss and
flavor point satiety."
The Flavor Point Diet: Food for Thought
Anyone who has been struggling with weight loss and wants to eat healthier
and consume more wholesome foods should give the Flavor Point Diet a
try. The book is easy to follow and offers an interesting new twist to weight
Diets work best if the entire family can eat the same meals together.
"If you are health conscious and want to eat absolutely delicious foods,
this diet is for you and everyone aged 2-82," proclaims Katz. Stocking your
pantry and refrigerator with healthy foods free of lots of preservatives and
additives will help the family eat healthier.
Most people who follow the Flavor Point Diet will lose weight, as
they would on any low-fat 1,300-1,500 calorie plan. But in addition, they will
be introduced to a new concept on how flavor affects appetite, while enjoying
an abundance of healthy, good-for-you foods.
