Robert Kushner’s Personality Type Diet

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

Background

Dr Robert Kushner is a renowned expert in the field of nutrition and obesity. His Personality Type diet is an innovative approach to weight loss – based on food and behavior.

Successful trials were undertaken at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s Wellness Institute in Chicago, IL, and the diet has received many endorsements (including the respected Mayo Clinic).

Determining Your Personality Type

personality-type-dietDr. Kushner ‘s book includes a survey consisting of over 70 questions about your eating habits. The survey results indicate an eating pattern – many of which Dr. Kushner has named (hearty portioner, fruitless feaster, nighttime nibbler, and many more).

The program will also determine your exercise personality and coping personality. It is these three elements combined that will contribute to a successful weight loss program.

By combining the results of all three personalities, the Personality Type Diet will craft a program based around your current habits. Weight loss is as much about altering behavior and habits as it is finding a good diet plan.

Crafting a Diet Plan

The Personality Diet creates meal plans using a large selection of healthy foods – as well as fast food options. It is not a restrictive diet but something that includes a good balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. There are 3 main meals and 2 snacks included in the menus.

Portions and quantities are determined by your own statistics.

    Sample Meal Plan is terrible: first banana should be taking separatly with out anything because it’s not combining with other food; second when we drink water with meal it’s slows digestion process for not having enough saliva; and third we should not combine syrup with waffle because it will wait for syrup to digest, sweets digested in intestinal canal, exception green vegetables: them we can take with sweets
