What is the Prasouda Diet – How Does It Work?

Posted in Prasouda Diet by Author

The Prasouda Diet is not your typical kind of diet.  What it involves goes beyond simple calorie counting, portion control, extreme weight loss and other drastic measures. Unlike other diet programs or plans, which emphasize mostly cutting out certain types of food or significantly reducing calorie intake, the diet focuses on two underlying principles:

  1. Eating Good Food
  2. Being Active

It’s more about living a certain lifestyle that emphasizes these two key points. It’s not a short-term solution, but rather a plan for the long haul. Let’s go over the diet in detail.

Eating Good Food on the Prasouda Diet:  How You Can Quickly and Easily Improve Your Health

Prasouda Diet - FruitsWhat exactly does this refer to?  For starters, eating good food means substituting foods such as margarine or butter with olive oil instead.  It is well known that olive oil contains many valuable anti-oxidants that the human body needs in order to thrive.  It’s no wonder why olive oil has increased importance as part of the diet.  It becomes a staple ingredient for the diet, as it is so versatile.  It can be used to cook meat, on salads, vegetables, and so on.

Fresh fruits and vegetables also play a critical role in the diet.  They have more importance in leading the way towards a healthier lifestyle as the North American food industry is dominated by processed foods and fast food.  In addition, fruits and vegetables should also comprise the bulk of your intake in your diet.  They contain many essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber that can assist with prevention of diseases and other ailments.  Another benefit of having increased fruit and vegetable intake is that they have a positive effect on weight loss.

Red meats such as beef and also fish will still play a role in the diet.  Whole wheat breads, grains, and pastas can also make up for the rest of the food that you will eat.  Omega3-rich fish such as salmon and trout are ideal for the diet, as well as eggs and other dairy products.  Chicken and other kinds of poultry are okay as well, although in sparing amounts.

Being Active:  The Secret to Living a Healthy Lifestyle

The Prasouda Diet also consists of being active.  This doesn’t necessarily mean working out every day or running a marathon.  However, one should expect to be more fit in general as a result of eating good food.  In turn, light physical activity like taking walks or leisurely bike rides will also help to improve overall health and well-being.  So as you can see, you not only are supposed to be active in the diet, but the diet itself allows you to lead an active lifestyle due to the health benefits of the food.  Increased energy, positivity, and motivation are aspects that lend well to a person’s overall ability to subject themselves to physical activity.

Can a Simple Change to My Eating Habits Really Improve My Health?

Absolutely.  The diet is not about radical change.  But, it is about living a lifestyle that allows you to eat as much as you want in terms of quality, delicious, and tasty food that is beneficial to your overall health.  It is about engaging in actions that keep the body balanced and active.  Continuing to follow the diet will allow one to a more joyful, prosperous, and healthy life.

In a future post I will cover the benefits and disadvantages (okay they’re might be some!) of the diet.  However, if you’ve been on a different diet before, you might be thinking that this really isn’t so much of a “real” diet, because you aren’t cutting out something “bad” that you eat in order to be healthier.

The Prasouda Diet – Benefits of Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables have the most importance in the Prasouda Diet plan.  They comprise the bulk of what you should be eating every day.  Why are they so important?  The reason is because they contain so many different kinds of vitamins and minerals that are essential in keeping your body healthy.  They also help to prevent disease and other chronic illnesses.  If our eating habits emphasize regular consumption in the Prasouda Diet then we can be healthier overall.  Let’s examine some of the vitamins and minerals in particular and the types of fruits or vegetables in which they can be found in.
