Chitosan Diet Sample Meal Plan

A Chitosan Diet Sample Meal Plan to speed your Weight Loss!

Chitosan has helped thousands of women lose weight- up to 31 percent more weight than people who don't take this 'super-fiber fat blocker'. The credit goes to the compound's ability to bind to fat in the digestive tract. And for the fastest weight loss, studies suggest cutting back on dietary fat and salt, plus adding nutrient-dense, fat-burning foods such as vegetables, dairy and protein.

The food formula below, developed by Linda Meltzer, C.N., and her team at Source Naturals nutrition company in Scotts Valley, California, can be used with chitosan supplements so you can adjust meals to make room for your favorite foods while still losing weight fast!

Breakfast:
Day 1: 1/2 cup oatmeal with 1/2 Tbs. raisins and 1/2 cup nonfat milk; 1 medium apple
Day 2: 3/4 oz. multi-grain cereal with 1/2 sliced banana or 3/4 cup sliced strawberries and 1/2 cup nonfat milk
Day 3: 2 pancakes with 1/2 cup peaches or 1/2 banana and 1 Tbs. reduced-calorie syrup; 1/2 cup low-fat yogurt; 1/2 cup nonfat milk

Snack:
Day 1: 1/2 cup nonfat yogurt
Day 2: 1/2 bagel topped with 1 Tbs. nonfat cream cheese
Day 3: 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese; 1/2 cup pineapple chunks

Lunch:
Day 1: 6 oz. tuna; lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and 1/4 avocado; 1 oz. pretzels; low-fat pudding cup
Day 2: Baked potato with 2 oz. silken tofu and 1/2 cup nonfat yogurt; 1/2 cup broccoli; 1 orange
Day 3: 1 cup vegetable soup; 2 oz. Monterey Jack cheese on 6 saltine crackers; 1 cup nonfat yogurt topped with 3/4 cup strawberries

Snack:
Day 1: 2 cups air-popped popcorn with nonfat seasoning
Day 2: 3 graham crackers; 1 medium apple, 1/2 cup nonfat milk
Day 3: 1/2 cup applesauce mixed with cinnamon and 1 tsp. sliced almonds

Dinner:
Day 1: 1/2 cup cooked pasta with 1/3 cup tomato sauce and 2 oz. ground turkey; 1/2 cup zucchini; green salad (1/2 cup lettuce, 1/4 cup mixed vegetables and 1 Tbs. nonfat dressing); 1/2 cup sliced peaches with cinnamon and 2 tsp. almonds.
Day 2: 6 oz. broiled trout; spinach salad (1 cup spinach, 1/2 cup mixed raw vegetables, 1 hard-boiled egg and 1 Tbs. nonfat dressing); 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
Day 3: 3 oz. skinless baked chicken; 1 cup cooked spinach with garlic and olive oil; 1/2 cup cooked brown rice; 2 small red plums

Diet in a nutshell: Aim for 1,500 calories a day, with approximately 50% carbs, 20% fat and 30% protein. Calories should be divided among three meals (with a Chitosan supplement before each) and two snacks.

But is chitosan really safe? Yes!

According to research at the Albert Eistein Centre in Nottingham, United Kingdom, chitosan is as safe as any other high-fiber supplement- so safe, in fact, that it's used in water-purification systems and as a food preservative (thanks to its antimicrobial powers).

But since chitosan powder is made from ground shells, people who are allergic to shellfish should not take the supplement. Pregnant women should also steer clear from chitosan cupplemets since chitosan may block absorption of the fat-soluble nutrients needed by growing babies.
