ABOUT THE DIET
Back To Top

The Suzanne Somers diet (Somersizing) was developed by TV and film actress Suzanne Somers. The diet is based on the principle of low carbohydrate, high protein consumption and is less restrictive than many diets out there (sometimes as high as 1,500 calories per day). The diet involves food combining, and eliminates some food from the diet. Some good, some bad; it eliminates junk food for the most part, but also eliminates some healthy foods.

DIET GUIDELINES
Back To Top

During the diet, fruits should be consumped by themselves, and vegetables should be eaten with fats and proteins. Something which should please every dieter is that there is no portion control and the diet also recommends eating smaller meals throughout the day as opposed to the traditional three squares per day. This is scientifically proven to be better for the body, in terms of optimizing metabolic rate and keeping blood sugar levels high and consistent throughout the day.

EXERCISE DURING THE DIET
Back To Top

No exercise is mentioned, but given the fact that this diet is not overly restrictive in the number of calories consumed during the day, some light cardio or aerobic activity should be included since energy levels should permit such activity.

ADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

The Suzanne Somers diet allows you to eat all the protein and fats you like, so in that sense it is not restrictive. It only really restricts sugar intake, but as a result, you will restrict many unhealthy foods and other junk food. With this diet, there is not a need to monitor portion sizes, and it advocates eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day, as opposed to the traditional diet of three square meals a day.

DISADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

This diet is pretty good, but is lacking in the necessary scientific evidence to support it. The diet also restricts fiber, and is somewhat complicated to follow at times.

CONCLUSION
Back To Top

The best part of the Suzanne Somers diet is that it eliminates junk food, and as more and more people are finding out, it is actually the quality of food consumed, and not the quantity which causes gains in weight. The Suzanne Somers diet deserves credit for helping people make smarter food choices. However, food combining is not support scientifically, and the diet eliminates many healthy food sources, which is not necessary, and will not help you to lose weight. However, there are many positive aspects of this diet, and it certainly worked for Suzanne Somers. It deserves credit, despite some areas which could be improved.
