With the 5-factor diet, you have to make sure you have healthy proteins, such as egg whites, fish, lean meats, such as chicken and fat-free dairy and complex carbs, which include veggies, wild rice, beans, lentils, oatmeal and quinoa. You also need fiber to stay full, and need foods such as whole-grain cereal, flourless wheat bread, fruits and vegetables and seeds. Healthy fats can come from salmon, tuna, sardines, peanut oil, olive oil or flaxseed. In addition you can drink as much water as you want, including sugar-free drinks.
The fact that you are eating healthier, packing on the fiber and skipping the sugary drinks can really make a difference on the scale. Some people have seen their blood sugar decrease, feel more energized and have seen the pounds come off.

We’re glad she’s just like the rest of us when it comes to working out. We might not love it, but we know it’s necessary to keep our bodies strong and healthy.
It’s really a simple diet to follow, plus you don’t have to worry about counting calories because most of the foods in this diet are low-calorie.
