The Reclaim Your Waist Diet Plan by Dr Christiane Northrup is all about following a low-GI way of eating, and includes three meals and two snacks a day. It’s not about deprivation, but rather about eating wholesome, nutritious foods and limiting processed, fatty, sugary foods.
Here is your 3-day sample menu to follow. If you like the diet, you can repeat this plan for a full six days.
Breakfast: Fresh fruit salad with a topping of plain, natural yoghurt
Snack: Hummus with crudités of carrot and celery
Lunch: Cottage cheese with a crisp mixed salad, plus herbs
Snack: Small handful of unsalted nuts
Dinner: Grilled salmon and steamed vegetables
Breakfast: A fruit smoothie – made with plain, natural yoghurt, ice blocks, 1 banana and a handful of berries
Snack: Half an avocado with a squeeze of fresh lime
Lunch: 1 tin canned tuna, plus a crisp salad (made with as many veggies as possible) with a swirl of olive oil and lemon
Snack: A juicy piece of fruit (an apple, pear or two naartjies)
Dinner: Stir-fried chicken made with bean sprouts, peppers, leeks, chilli and garlic
Breakfast: Two poached eggs and grilled tomatoes
Snack: A piece of fruit (an apple, pear or citrus fruit)
Lunch: Grlled chicken breast with tomato, onion and olive oil
