The Green Faces Diet
What is it? Welp, it’s pretty self explanatory. You only eat things that are either green or have/had a face. Hence the name “green faces”. That’s it.
Who should do the Green Faces Diet?Now, I am not promoting this diet long term. I don’t promote ANY “diet” long term. I am a firm believer in eating well balanced, vitamin packed, nutritious meals as a way of life with an occasional treat meal.
But, the green faces diet might be a good option for those of you who:
- just put on a few extra pounds over vacation
- have a big event coming up in a week or so
- are stuck in a sugar addiction (don’t deny it! ha!)
- are in a weight loss plateau
If you are in a crunch and need a jumpstart, then this is a good option. But, like I said, I would only do it for a week (21 days max).
So What Can I Eat Again?
Green Faces Diet Menu
Think green. You can eat any green vegetable for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack time. I would recommend having 4-6 meals a day. Combine each vegetable with a protein that had a face or would’ve had a face. Yes, eggs count. And, of course, drink LOTS of water! Keep in mind, though, that I am only recom-mending this diet to those of you that meet one of the above criteria. If you eat clean and workout a lot, this will not necessarily be a good idea. Odds are you will need more energy. But, if you decide to try it anyways then just listen to your body.
Green suggestions: asparagus, broccoli, kale, collard greens, romaine lettuce, zucchini, green beans, celery, green peas, spinach, green peppers, cabbage, artichokes (no avocado–devastating, I know!)
Faces suggestions: chicken, pork, beef, bacon, salmon, eggs, tuna, buffalo, turkey, shellfish, any white fish, whey protein
Approved oils: Olive, Coconut, Almond, Flax, Peanut, Sesame, Sunflower, Walnut. Focus on grilling, baking, steaming and sautéing.Digging Deeper, Jessica Bowser Nelson
P.S. Not quite ready for the 7-21 day green faces diet then you might want to consider the 3 day shakeology cleanse.
