The Power Plate Diet has four rules:
- No super-starchy carbs after 4 p.m.
- Cut back on added sugar
- Cut back on sodium
- Cut back on alcohol
In addition, what goes on your plate varies based on meal. For breakfast, it’s a third each of proteins, carbs, and fruits/non-starchy vegetables. For lunch, your meal consists of a third each of proteins, carbs/starchy vegetables, and non-starchy vegetables. Dinner is made up of a third proteins and two-thirds low or non-starchy vegetables. There are also two snacks per day.
The Power Plate Diet includes a four-week menu plan, a shopping list where you check what you need, a food prep plan, an exercise system, and lots of delicious recipes. Many of the recipes are vegetarian or vegan friendly. However, none of the recipes have nutritional information or photographs. If you are looking for a traditional diet and exercise plan, this book could work for you. 4 stars!
