The Flavor Point Diet is a new system of weight loss. Most of the diet books advise you to eat foods or food groups that are low in calories and mostly not appetizing. This new diet theory by nutrition expert David Katz and Catherine Katz is a novel plan that takes into consideration appetite control and "sensory specific satiety."
While you are on this kind of diet you can eat delicious food. But it has a breakthrough plan to control your hunger and promote weight loss. The diet program is based on importance of flavors in food and their impact on appetite.
According to the authors, meals which contain different kinds of flavor (such as sweet, salty, or savory) stimulate the appetite and can lead to overeating. But a limited number of flavors at one meal or snack are more likely to prevent overeating. It is easier for your brain and stomach to stop eating when you are full with one kind of flavor in the meal. The diet recommends nutritious, and healthy eating while concentrating on flavors.
In this kind of diet you are taught to adapt to a new way of thinking about selecting food based on flavor point satiety. In the first two phases you are taught to unsubtle and organize flavors. In the first phase which is of four weeks you are required to eat according to a daily flavor theme. For each type of flavor a number recipes are there in the book and nutrient analysis for each recipe is done. After three weeks you can indulge once a week in coconut or chocolate but the calories have to kept under 1,500 calories
In the second phase rather than daily flavor theme you have greater variety of daily flavors. But still each meal has only one kind of flavor. The idea is that the initial two phases will help you to manage flavor in all of your meals and snacks.
You should ensure that you get a balanced nutrition daily. Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, and fiber in your diet daily. Avoid sodas, sweetened beverages, trans fats, and other non-healthy kind of calories. The book has more than 100 recipes for the period of diet which will teach you to eat healthy while controlling flavors.
Flavor Point Diet is based on the principle that limiting the number of flavors reduces the appetite where as too many flavors increase the appetite and tendency to overeat. By limiting flavors at a meal you can enjoy different nutritious and tasty foods but still control your calories. On this diet in a period of six weeks you can lose up to 16 pounds according to the authors of Flavor Point Diet. You should include lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, fish, and low-fat dairy products in your diet. However avoid high fat diet and limit the calories to about 1,300-1,500 per day.
