Rainbow Diet: How to Lose Weight With Healthy Foods

As an adult, I became fascinated with nutrition. I studied diet books, read magazines, and watched documentaries. I experimented with eating plans and tried to figure out which foods were healthy and which ones weren't.

 Eventually, I discovered the Rainbow Diet.

What would you say if I told you that you could eat anything you want, whenever you want, without feeling guilty or depriving yourself? Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. The Rainbow Diet meal plan is designed to give you the freedom to enjoy food anytime, anywhere.

The Rainbow Diet was created by Dr. Robert Lustig, who has dedicated his life to studying obesity and its causes. He believes that overeating is caused by our inability to recognize natural signals telling us when we’re full. This leads to consuming foods that aren’t nutritious enough to provide us with energy.

Dr. Lustig developed a simple method to break down carbohydrates into their basic building blocks. By eliminating refined carbs from your diet, you'll experience less hunger and cravings. In addition, he recommends replacing processed grains with whole grains, which contain fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients.
