The Rice Diet has been used in the prevention and treatment of obesity for many years. The diet moves in phases and can also be used as a detox diet.
The rice diet is said to focus on lifestyle changes that provide a safe haven and support to foster profound changes in eating habits for a life long change. There is more to the rice diet than simply eating three healthy meals per day.
Sometimes dieters are monitored closely at a facility by a staff of medical professionals, but the diet can also be done at home. The rice diet is simple, easy to prepare and can be easily found in books and on the internet.
Before beginning any diet at home, be sure to consult your physician and let him know that you are considering the rice diet as it is very low in sodium. This is crucial if you are on any medication. The food plan for the rice diet at home has a slightly higher sodium level as it is not monitored by professionals and is a little safer.
Also it is very important to limit your the detox portion of the diet, to one day per week. The rice diet along with a vegetarian food plan is recommended until the desired weight goal is reached. As well, it is important to eat some foods slightly higher in sodium, like nonfat dairy products, regular breads or cereals to make this program safe for home use.
