Will the diet known as Palm Beach Diet, take you down the right path or is it going to be a walk off the plank?
In a nutshell, the Palm Beach Diet could be summarized as a diet that focuses on intake of high-fiber, lean proteins, and unsaturated fats. The only carbs that a person on the Palm Beach Diet can consume is the low-glycemic kind.
It is mistakenly referred to as an advanced version of the Mediterranean Diet. However, while the latter is based on a healthy balanced outlook towards life, the Palm Beach Diet most certainly isn’t!
Here are some reasons you should consider dropping it:
A Lifestyle, Not Just a Diet
The Palm Beach Diet doesn’t include any real long-term food prohibitions. Therefore, you can’t depend on the pounds you lost to stay gone! The Mediterranean Diet, on the contrary, is more of a lifestyle. Since it sufficiently fulfills all the dietary requirements, you can stay on it for as long as you want!
No Unhealthy Vilification of Carbs
While the Mediterranean diet does promote meals that are low in sugar, it aims at limiting harmful refined sugar sources such as high fructose corn syrup. Instead of such foods, the diet proposes you include fruit, honey, and even homemade desserts in your diet. Since the Palm Beach diet doesn’t include fruits in the menu, dieters lose a healthy source of vitamins and minerals. Without the supply of vitamins that our body depends on, the diet has the potential to cause cardiac, liver, renal, and bone abnormalities. No diet can be called healthy or balanced if it excludes fruits!
Easy, Quickly-Prepared Recipes
The dishes typically included in the Palm Beach diet plan require longer time to prepare. For instance, it takes brown rice at least half hour to cook. Every meal would eat into your time and pretty soon, seem like too much of an effort! On the other hand, Mediterranean diet is relatively easy to adopt. A typical menu might start with oatmeal with nuts and fruits with salmon and spinach for lunch. An afternoon snack could be as simple as having some crunchy carrots with hummus while the dinner can be a salad of chickpea, mozzarella, and tomato. End the day with an evening snack by enjoying delicious Greek yogurt and some fruit.
