Features of Dr. Ornish diet

There is no doubt that such a diet is quite a complex power system, as it provides too many restrictions in the choice of products. This is due to the fact that the Ornish diet is primarily vegetarian one and is very low in calories. For it a common feature is that the calories derived from fats shall not exceed ten percent of all consumed calories per day. Thus,one can not eat more than 25 grams of fat per day, which eliminates the use of fish or meat. In addition, it is necessary to abandon the following products:

  • Oil.
  • Milk.
  • Nuts.
  • Cheeses.
