Loma Linda Diet

The weight loss plan promoted by the Loma Linda University is a vegetarian eating plan. Loma Linda is a Seventh-Day Adventist university. Many Seventh-Day Adventists either practice vegetarianism or strictly limit the amount of meat they eat. According to studies they have conducted, the physicians at Loma Linda believe that eating a vegetarian diet can prolong life by lowering your risk of: heart disease, high blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, colon cancer, and prostate cancer.

This seems logical, considering a vegetarian diet is one that also is extremely low in cholesterol and saturated fats. There are several different types of vegetarianism: Some people choose to be “semi-vegetarians” and consume no red meat, but will eat some chicken and fish in addition to vegetable foods, dairy, and eggs. “Ovo-lacto” vegetarians eat no meat, but eggs and dairy products in addition to foods of vegetable origin. “Lacto” vegetarians add only dairy products to their vegetables. Vegans eat strictly food from vegetable sources.

It is obviously the most difficult for vegans to get all the nutrients they need from their diet, and it may be advisable for people to take calcium supplements if you’re on a diet like this. However, there are many plants which contain proteins and iron, including legumes and tree nuts. Eating a vegetarian diet takes effort and discipline, but if you stick with a diet like this, you’re almost guaranteed to lose weight (provided you don’t overdose on baked goods or sugary sweets). Merely increasing the number of fruits and vegetables in your diet will help you decrease the amount of fattening foods in your diet.
