A Poor Man's Diet Plan


The fact that dalits are poor does not mean that they cannot have a nutiritous diet plan, that too a low fat one even with the little they have. A lot of diseases they experience are because of their diets, often eating poorly. But even with the little they have dalits can indeed have a nutritious diet as far as possible. Here is what would be a poor man's diet as put forth by Jill Corleone on livestrong (in this fat diminisher system review too you find the similar food suggestions for weight loss as given below).

"Eating healthy can fit anyone's budget, even the poor man. Sixty-two percent of shoppers think healthy foods are too expensive, according to ChooseMyPlate.gov, but replacing your unhealthy snack foods such as chips or crackers with a healthy serving of fruits or vegetables can save you 2 cents per serving. That may not sound like much, but coupled with other cost-saving tips for healthy eating, those 2 cents can add up.

A healthy diet should include 2 1/2 cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit a day (dalits think about bananas). When buying fresh, buy what's in season to keep costs down. You can also check out local farmer's markets for cheap, fresh produce.

Swap out refined grains for whole grains, and you may eat less. Fiber in whole grains is satiating, keeping you feeling full longer after you eat. Whole grains help your budget and your waistline. For good health, MyPlate recommends at least half your servings of grains be whole grain. You can also save money on grains by buying store brands or buying in bulk. Store your brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, oatmeal and whole-wheat flour in airtight containers to keep them fresh. You can even freeze cooked grains for up to six months.

Meat may blow your budget, but you can meet protein needs without eating meat every day. Beans and eggs are all less-expensive, healthy sources of protein. You can also stretch your meat by mixing it with other foods, such as a veggie stir-fry or potato and carrot stew. Like grains, you can also buy meat in bulk to save money.

Most adults need three servings of dairy food a day. Look for low-fat or nonfat varieties to save calories. You may be able to save money on dairy foods, including milk and cheese, buying larger sizes, but you need to check the unit price to compare costs, says MyPlate.gov. The unit price gives you the price of a food item per ounce or pound. Choose your dairy foods with the lowest unit price to get the most value for your money.

A healthy meal plan for a poor man's diet should include three meals, each about the same size, plus one snack. For breakfast, whole-grain item with hard-cooked eggs, a nonfat yogurt and a banana is healthy and cheap. At lunch, you might enjoy tuna on fresh greens topped with chopped carrots and kidney beans and served with store brand whole-grain items. A healthy dinner for your poor man's diet might include chicken stew with potatoes, cooked frozen broccoli and a cup of nonfat milk.
