A diet isn't always something you do to lose weight.

A diet includes everything that voyages down that impressive food tube--be it nutritious, artery-occluding, tasteless, or delicious.

By using my prescription tool below, you can access a personalized diet prescription that spells out what your body is begging you for today.

Reminder: this is NOT a weight loss plan. Losing weight requires operating within a caloric deficit, created through either diet, exercise, or better yet, both. The prescription below describes what your body needs (to healthily sustain), in its current state, maintaining the status quo.

If your goal is to lose weight, consult a physician before starting an exercise program and aim for a healthy loss of 1-2 pounds of fat each week.

A single pound of fat stores approximately 3,500 calories; in order to recompose 3,500 calories in a week (7 days), a 500-calorie deficit each day is recommended.

Similarly, a 1,000-calorie/day deficit would convert 2 pounds of fat in a week.

ALL excess macronutrients get stored as fat (yes, even the beloved protein).
