Diet Plans And Menus - The Fricker Diet
by: Levi Reiss

The Fricker Diet, also known as the High Speed Diet, was created by Doctor Harald Fricker. It is based on balanced food intake, rich in proteins and low in calories. For lunch and supper you may eat as much meat and vegetables as you wish. This is a three phase diet, in which the first two phases help you lose weight rapidly. The final phase stabilizes your weight. Here are some of the principles.

In the initial phase you increase your daily protein intake. You wiil eat a lot of vegetables and drink a lot of water. Don't eliminate oil from your diet, and don't eat a lot of glucides. Acceptable glucide-containing foods include fruits, vegetables, and yogurt. Both starchy and sugary foods are forbidden. Eat three meals a day. In the second phase you may eat all the vegetables you wish. Reintroduce certain starches such as whole grain or rye bread. Eat 100 to 150 grams (3 to 5 ounces) of starchy foods at lunch and at supper. Diminish your portions of meat, fish, or seafood to from 50 to 100 grams. During the final phase if you need to lose weight follow the principles of phase 2 but eat starchy foods only at every second meal. This Fricker diet suggests that you practice an endurance sport for three hours a week (in 3 to 7 sessions).

The Fricker Diet has the advantage of being easy to follow. You will find a wide choice of accepted foods. A disadvantage is that during the initial phase, which must not last longer than 8 weeks, dieters may be always hungry because starchy and sugary foods are forbidden.

Here are two sample menus:

Menu 1 (Phase 1)

Breakfast: 2 Fruit 0%-butterfat yogurts. A glass of buttermilk. 2 clementines.

Lunch: Green salad. Tuna steak. Ratatouille.

Supper: Cucumber salad. Chicken breast. Spinach.

Menu 2 (Phase 2)

Breakfast: 40 grams of sugarless muesli. A 0%-butterfat yogurt. An apple. Tea or coffee.

Lunch: Sliced raw vegetables. Grilled sole. Zucchini and broccoli. 10 grams of oil. A 0%-butterfat yogurt.

Supper: Tomato and cucumber salad. 100 grams of veal scaloppini. 100 grams of brown rice. Spinach. An apple.

Some of the information in this article comes from a fascinating new book, La Bible des Regimes, written by Jenny de Jonquieres and published by Amerik Media. Her book describes over 80 diets and weight reduction programs. Each diet description provides 5 menu plans, a detailed discussion of its advantages and disadvantages, and lots more. At present La Bible des Regimes is available only in French.
