The Bonus Years Diet is a creation of Ralph Felder and Carol Coleman. Ralph Felder is a physician and is also a trained chef. Carol is a NY Times best selling author. The diet is based on seven foods that will boost your health and extend your longevity.
How Does It Work?
The seven foods that the diet centers on are all beneficial to lowering your risk of heart disease, lowering your blood pressure, and improving your insulin sensitivity or increasing your antioxidants levels. Each of the seven foods should help you to live longer. The combined effect of all seven should reduce or prevent your risk of heart disease by 75%.
According to Dr. Felder, "they help to protect the "Teflon" like lining cells (endothelium) of the blood vessels, which are critical in keeping the blood flowing smoothly and the vessels dilated."
What are the seven super foods?
Now you can have chocolate!
Add these recommended amounts:
2 oz of nuts daily
5 oz. of Red Wine daily
2 oz. of dark chocolate daily
1 clove of garlic (about 2.7 oz.) daily
5oz. of fish, 3 times per week
4 cups of fruit and/or vegetables daily
The diet provides an example eating plan along with over 125 recipes.
Dr. Felder has also included help for making his diet friendly for diabetics, for those that are
lactose intolerant, and for those that need to be gluten free.
Does It Work?
Yes. 4 cups of fruits and vegetables will help you to be satisfied without a lot of calories. When your calorie intake is lowered, you should lose weight.
Although these seven foods are appealing, eating six to seven of the same foods daily may be difficult for the long term.
Not to detract from this diet, but most healthy diets will also improve your health and your life span.
The diet is healthy and should add years to your life. I believe that just a bit of creativity will overcome any chance of monotony. I give the diet two thumbs up and recommend that you consider adding it to your list of weight loss options.
Thanks for reading, my friends. I wish you success on your weight loss journey.
