The O2 Diet wants you to throw away the scale and forget about what you ‘can’t’ eat. The O2 Diet tells you to load your plate with a bunch of antioxidant-rich foods. This O2 Diet founded by Keri Glassman, promise you will be thin and more beautiful while it teaches you to love healthy food. Instead of counting calories with the O2 diet, you count ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) points. So what can you eat with this diet exactly?
You will be eating plenty of fruits and vegetables along with whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean protein, fish, beans, healthy fats, herbs and spices with this O2 Diet plan. This diet plan is based on achieving 30,000 ORAC points daily, though calories still count. You can eat all the vegetables you want but you must pay attention to the portion of fruits, lean proteins, starches, fats and the indulgences so you can start losing weight.
For anyone on the O2 Diet plan, it is suggested to get rid of baked goods, fat-free and sugar-free foods, fried foods, high-fat and processed meats, soft drinks, sweets, added sugars, trans fats, and processed foods. The O2 Diet is a 32 day plan that will start you off with 1,200 calories a day for a 4 day ‘cleanse’ that will provide 50,000 ORAC points per day. (That may sound a little high but just think, one cup of blueberries contains 9,700 ORAC points.)
