The Eat More, Weigh Less diet was developed by Dr. Dean Ornish, a doctor specializing in heart disease. This diet aims to reverse and prevent heart disease through diet and lifestyle changes. In addition to removing meat, sugar and fat from the diet, the Eat More, Weight Less program prescribes lifestyle changes including regular exercise and stress management techniques such as yoga, massage and meditation. This diet divides food into three categories: all, some and none, which dictates how often the food should be consumed.
Foods in the "All" category can be eaten at any time on the Eat More, Weight Less Diet. Dieters should eat these foods until they are full. Dieters may eat all of the fruits and vegetables that they want. Broccoli, lettuce, carrots, eggplant, cauliflower, tomatoes, apples, bananas and watermelon are just a few of the fruits and vegetables that can be enjoyed on this diet. Grains--such as whole grain bread, rice and pasta--may also be consumed. Finally, enjoy beans and legumes--such as black beans, pinto beans, peas, navy beans, kidney beans and chick-peas on the Eat More, Weigh Less plan.
Foods in the "Some" category may be eaten sometimes in moderation. Nonfat, dairy items are included in this category. Enjoy nonfat milk, cheese and yogurt in moderation. Nonfat or low-fat prepared foods--like frozen meals and desserts--can also be consumed, as long as they do not contain high amounts of sugar.
The foods in the "None" category should be avoided when possible; the strict dieter will remove them from his diet entirely. Included in this category are all meats, fish and poultry. Oils of any kind are also prohibited, as are fattening items such as olives, nuts and avocados. Sugar and other sweeteners--such as honey and syrup--should be avoided. Any processed foods containing more than 2g of fat should not be consumed.
