What Kind of Flour for The Biggest Loser Diet?

What Kind of Flour for The Biggest Loser Diet

How Does the Biggest Loser Diet Work?

The Biggest Loser diet is based on the 4-3-2-1 Pyramid:

  • 4 servings: fruits and vegetables
  • 3 servings: lean protein
  • 2 servings: whole grains
  • 1 serving (200 calories): extras

Small, frequent meals of these food groups, along with exercise, can help you lose weight. A variety of Biggest Loser Diet books and online resources are available for recipes, meal plans, and exercise plans.

The Biggest Loser Diet allows all food groups, so no particular types of flour are off limits. Whole grains are encouraged as part of the diet. These can be ground in the Lee Household Flour Mill.

What Do You Eat on the Biggest Loser Diet?

The diet helps control your hunger level and blood sugar with five or six small meals plus snacks mainly consisting of:

  • Lean protein
  • Low-fat dairy or soy
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Beans
  • Nuts

Since most of these foods are low calorie and high fiber, they keep you feeling fuller longer. Avoid caffeine and drink six to eight glasses of water a day.
