One of the best fruits for weight loss is the apple.Apples should be consumed with their skin intact.
• Vegetables (cooked or raw) on the second day: Although raw vegetables are preferable, it is absolutely fine to eat cooked vegetables too, as long as they do not contain much oil or any coconut.

Advice on diet

Developing a healthy diet plan for a week can be quite a difficult task, but is an excellent way to lose weight. One of the best approaches to develop a week long diet plan is to maintain a food diary, where you record the amount and types of food you eat on a daily basis. You can then use a calorie counter to find out what your daily calorie consumption is. You can also find out what your ideal calorie consumption is and then match the two to determine whether you are receiving an adequate amount of calories on a daily basis. You can talk to your doctor for advice on diet requirements and meal plans. Advice on diet basics includes information on how to switch to healthy foods without suffering from cravings and hunger pangs. A one week diet plan will help you to kick start a healthy eating plan.

Why follow a one week diet plan?

The most effective ways of sticking to a diet is by starting slow and including a variety of foods in your diet.

Healthy Diet Tips 

Every diet plan is very individualized and according to a person's daily requirements, likes and dislikes, age, sex and lifestyle. So it would be difficult to mail you a week's diet plan without any basis. However you can follow these simple healthy tips to improve your general nutritional status.

  • Whole grain cereals and its products should form the basis of your diet as from this group you get your complex carbohydrates, fiber and other B-complex nutrients. Incorporate lots of fresh fruits vegetables in different forms like raw, salads, and fruit salads, baked or in boiled form. But remember if you top your fruits with cream or if you load your salads with fattening dressings then you are doing no good.
  • Pulses, sprouts, nuts, fish, poultry, lean meat and eggs should be consumed in moderation; they provide very high quality protein. Try and avoid shelled fish like crabs, lobsters, organ meats like kidney, liver, brain, red meat, pork and sausages with full fat, as along with the protein it also gives you considerable amount of fat which is not desired.
  • Neither you starve nor you binge this is the rule you should follow because when you don't eat anything for a long time then your body reaches in a famished state which then binges when a meal is offered. So have healthy snack when you feel hungry but don't starve yourself.
  • Water and exercise should be the base of any healthy diet plan to remain fit forever.
  • Learn the key to moderation and understand the serving size when you lay your hands on any oily junk food, sodas, colas, chocolates, pastries, bakery items and sweets.
