Nope . . . not this one . . . actually Doctor Gott claims to be the creator of the easiest diet in the world with his no sugar, no flour diet. But i was thinking . . .
Isn't the EASIEST diet in the world where you simply eat WHATEVER you want while making sure that you don't exceed the required calorie amount based on basal metabolism + activity?
So . . . if you're daily caloric requirement is (let's say) 3000 cal/day you could eat a 300 calorie primal breakfast then got to McDonald's for lunch and shove a double quarter-pounder with cheese (740 calories) and a large fry (500 calories) down your throat . . . and still have room for two slices of Domino's large, deep dish Philly Steak Pizza (413 calories a slice) at dinner.
Obviously there's a nutritional issue with all this . . . are you getting the best in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients? Well, maybe not the best . . . but I think it is certainly adequate for a modern human.
Yeah . . . but what about fat, carbs and protein? Doesn't matter all that much, does it? You're getting plenty of all three and even if one or two are out of whack . . . you won't gain weight as long as you're eating less than your daily caloric requirement.
In fact, with a 3000 daily caloric requirement, you will still lose one pound of fat on this diet every week (approximately).
Obviously, I am not recommending this fast food approach but my point is that I just don't understand why people are concerned about macronutrients and the type of food (grains, flous, sugar, etc) as long as they are controlling caloric intake?
Any help clarifying this greatly appreciated!
