healthy-diet-recipesThe basis of an effective diet program is great tasting, healthy recipes. If the diet’s food is too bland, boring, or monotonous then the likelihood of long term success is greatly diminished.

When choosing a diet program it’s important to take into consideration what type of foods can be eaten on the plan as well as what kind of recipes are provided.

If a dieter can find a diet plan that fits in with his/her tastes as well as one that provides many great tasting meal options then the chances of that diet plan becoming a lifestyle greatly increases.

Below are some great tasting healthy recipes from some of the popular diet programs or ways of eating available today.

    Mike, change your doctor, seriously
    And also you need nutritionist, eat “pretty well” and have high triglycerides is basically impossible.
    Find functional medicine specialist in your area, it’s probably the best you can do for your precious self.

    I have been battling high triglyceride levels for 25 years. I’m now 50, 5′-9 1/2″, 182lbs. I could do more exercise, but eat pretty well. My recent checkup has shown a trigyl lvl of 362, glucose fast of 186, platelets of 122, 3 nodules in my thyroid w/ normal levels. MD’s want me to take Actos 15mg, Crestor 10mg,Onglizer 5mg, and Trilipix ?mg. Reading about Leptin is making me furious with my MD’s. What do I do???

I have had hormonal imbalance since I had my first period so i am going to try this again as I have gained weight and I would guess I am undereating. Thanks

      I’m not sure what you want us to do…there are many free programs out there like spark people. If you have trouble limiting food portions and choosing healthy foods then you might have to invest in some structured program such as a diet food delivery service.
