The Omish diet is a very strict diet that focuses on removing saturated fats and cholesterol from your diet while consuming mostly whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables with minimum meat intake. Saturated fats are pegged “saturated” because they stay solid at room temperature and derive from animal products. Common examples are lard, butter, meat fat, solid shortening, palm and coconut oil. This plan recommends a food breakdown of 10 percent fat, 20 percent protein and 70 percent carbs with limited meat and poultry intake. Popular since the 1970s, like many other diets, the Omish diet encourages daily exercise to be successful with desired weight loss.
