This is the cost of eating cheap food. This is the pain and suffering that results when people eat for pleasure.
Obesity isn't possible on the Spartan Diet. No matter how much you weigh, you'll lose weight on the Spartan Diet until you're the right weight, then it will level off. This process is built into the diet.
There's a lot more to it, but here's an oversimplied look at how the Spartan Diet achieves this:
* Only the healthiest foods allowed -- with only healthy olive and flax oils, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables and other super healthy foods, your body's metabolism works as it should, and all organs function at their best.There's a lot more to it, but this is a small glimpse at the Spartan Diet's total elimination of the possibilty of obesity and being overweight.
* Doctrine of hunger -- On the Spartan Diet, you eat three meals a day. If you're overweight, no snacking allowed. Once you're the right weight, snacking is OK, but only fresh, whole, raw fruit. You eat until you're satisfied, but never eat to "fullness."
* Drink only water -- some 25% or more of the calories taken by many Americans in the form of drinks, including soda, alcohol and juice drinks.
* Non-foods are on the diet -- The Spartan diet requires sleep, sun and excercise, which is required for optimum health and weight loss for the overweight.
