Fresh Fit Meal Plan Guide Week 18 is dedicated to recipes that flow well with a Mediterranean style diet. I recently watched an episode of Rachel Ray where Biggest Loser Trainer Bob Harper told the story of his massive heart attack. Bob is lucky to be alive and his fans of course reach out to him asking him how this happened to someone so fit. Bob explains that he ate a very high fat, high protein diet prior to the heart attack. What he’s found in the after math is that his family history makes that a very bad idea. Doctors have encouraged him to eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and only some lean protein, so basically a Mediterranean diet. The lesson here is that you need to check with your doctor before embarking on any diet program. Specifically diets that eliminate food groups and pump your body with one set of nutrients.
I truly take an approach to everything in moderation so this meal plan guide is dedicated to recipes that are balanced and heavy on the whole grains, fruits, and veggies. Bob’s story reminds us that no matter how fit you are, you CAN get too much of a good thing. There is not a one size fits all way of eating.
