The Limitation of Your Weight Through the Flavors

We, the human race, are very used to make many combinations of flavors along the day, everyday during all our life. That is the way we enjoy our food. But now, there is a doctor who lately posted a book called “The flavor point diet”, who says that it is very healthy to make a “one day flavor” instead of combinations. The writer states that “it is easier to lose weight by sticking to the same flavors”. Let us try to understand. Dr. David Katz, director of Yale University Prevention Research Center, stated to CNN in an interview that “the idea is perhaps less boring than it sounds. For example, pineapple day features pineapple juice and cereal for breakfast; pineapple-walnut chicken salad and crackers for lunch; pineapple shrimp, bulgur, sautéed peas and tossed salad for dinner; and caramelized pineapple rings for dessert”. According to his book and the CNN interview, the theory of Katz is based on a little-publicized phenomenon called sensory-specific satiety. That is the term used to describe the way food becomes less palatable when enough of it is eaten. “Adding a new flavor renews the process”, he states, and adds that numerous studies have shown this. On health news is possible to read the whole interview and a testimony of a person that was submitted to this diet and talks about all the results. Some Tips and a sample menu from "The Flavor Point Diet": Avoid mixing sweet and salty foods at the same meal, though an occasional Chinese food meal is OK. Avoid processed food with lots of hidden flavors that can stimulate overeating. Drink six 8-ounce glasses of water throughout the day. Always start dinner with a mixed green salad to help curb your appetite. Eat some of the same flavor at every meal of the day to help feel full sooner. For "tomato" day, breakfast is a sandwich of two slices of whole-grain bread, one soft-cooked egg, two slices of tomato and 1 tablespoon of part-skim mozzarella cheese. Morning snack is 12 cherry tomatoes with two tablespoons of hummus. Lunch is tomato and black bean Mediterranean salad in half a whole-wheat pita. Afternoon snack is 12 baked corn chips and one-third cup tomato salsa. Dinner is baked tilapia with tomatoes, olives and capers, cooked bulgur wheat, sauteed cauliflower florets and tossed garden salad with chickpeas. Dessert is peach-blueberry salad.
