What is scarsdale diet? How is it different from other diet plan? The Scarsdale Diet plan is a two week low fat/low carbohydrate and high protein diet. The diet plan includes low carbohydrate and low fat food items while it includes high protein items. It does not completely cut out the carbohydrates though, it includes some bread and fruits as well to provide the carbohydrates to the body.

The basic Scarsdale diet is to be followed for either seven to 14 days, alternating with two weeks off. The dieter is instructed to drink at least 4 glasses of water, tea, or diet soda every day in order to flush waste products from the body.

The Scarsdale Diet have no special dietary needs or problems and clearly outlines the type of foods to be eaten each day. An adult woman who follows the diet exactly will consume between 650 and 1000 calories per day. The nutrient ratio, which is unusual for a low-carbohydrate diet, is 43% protein, 22.5% fat, and 34.5% carbohydrate.

Scarsdale diet is a balanced diet which does not exclude any food group completely. This is one of its strongest advantages since that is a highly important aspect of any diet plan. Any diet plan that excludes carbohydrates or fat from a person’s diet completely is unhealthy since the body needs its carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins as well as minerals. The Scarsdale diet simply reduces the sizes of portions and the choice of carbohydrates from the usual diet which helps the body in losing weight in a comfortable, yet healthy manner.

The good thing about the diet is that it promises to keep weight down for the whole life instead of only helping a person lose excess weight temporarily. Once the weight loss is achieved, the diet program includes a lifetime ‘Keep-slim’ program.
