About the diet

The Greengrocer’s Diet is a seasonal-based weight loss plan that was given its name because most of the produce eaten on the diet can be bought from a good greengrocer store.  Fresh produce makes up the bulk of what you eat and while you’ll also eat some dairy, whole grains, meat, fish and chicken, the emphasis is placed on the fresh produce because you can eat much more of it.

Compared to other food, vegetables and fruit are the lowest kilojoule, highest nutrient options around, which means you can eat lots of them and not get fat. Not only will you be able to eat more than you are accustomed to on a weight loss diet, you’ll also start to feel exceedingly well.  It’s one of the main reasons why everyone who trialled the diet loved it so much and were happy to stick to it; they love the food and it makes them feel good. 

If you have a lot of weight to lose then you must be prepared to lose it over a number of months - maybe even a few seasons. With The Greengrocer's Diet you can do that and not get bored: as the seasons change, so do the meals. In summer when it's hot you'll eat more fresh salads, while in winter when it's cold you'll eat more nourishing hot soups and casseroles. It's how we're meant to eat. It's what nature intended.
