Advice on Sonoma Diet

Intake of the right kind of foods is the basic principle of the Sonoma diet. Avoidance of any particular food is not done. The initial ten days are the induction period, during which nuts, eggs, low fat dairy products, whole grins and cereals are allowed. Added sugar, refined foods and saturated fats are completely abstained from, throughout the diet plan.

This diet is more preferred by individuals who like vegetables and fruits. Generous mounts of nutrient dense foods are allowed.

The initial wave is for 10 days. The weight loss period is the intermediate phase, whereas maintenance is the last phase. The most vital part of the diet, which provides great value to the Sonoma diet are tomatoes, whole grains, bell peppers, broccoli, whole grains, blue berries, spinach, almonds, spinach, olive oil and grapes. Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants.

Grapes are a good source of phyto nutrients. Spinach supplies calcium, iron, folate and vitamin K, whereas broccoli gives calcium and ascorbic acid. Strawberries are sweet and full of nutrients. Whole grains help in warding off cancer, whereas tomatoes are equally effective. Portion control and the importance of a balanced meal is brought out.
