the feng diet

POSTED 09 January 2012 IN Wellbeing

Feng Sushi have teamed up with leading nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston to create the January Feng Diet plan which is delicious and delivered right to your door, making your health resolutions beautifully simple to follow.

The Feng Diet includes the quality sustainably sourced foods you would expect from Feng Sushi but also have been put together by Yvonne to help you gain the maximum health benefits. The aim of the plan is to help you cleanse your body with wholegrain carbs such as brown rice, buckwheat noodles, beans and of course plenty of vegetables. The plan is also carefully arranged to help keep your blood sugar levels balanced by having 3 meals and 2 snacks a day and only wholegrain carbs which are carefully combined with lean proteins. Eating this way helps to prevent blood sugar highs and the inevitable slumps which lead to symptoms such as headaches, low mood, sugar or caffeine cravings and weight gain. Wholegrain carbs are an important part of our diet as they contain vitamins, minerals and fibre but too many carbs are likely to be stored as body fat so we have balanced them with lean proteins to help you release them slowly for day-long energy and to help you reach and maintain your ideal weight. A daily portion of seaweed provides an additional boost as the iodine in seaweed can help boost a sluggish thyroid and metabolic rate. The Feng Diet is also dairy and wheat-free to help your body have a break from these often over-eaten foods.

Ideally follow the Feng Diet for 3 consecutive days and repeat once a week throughout January. The diet is available from today and can be ordered online or over the phone. We have taken care of all your meals and this is how it works: you will receive a delivery the evening before you start with your porridge for your breakfast and a mid morning snack of brown rice sushi, thereafter you will receive 2 deliveries a day. One delivery at lunch time consisting of salad and sashimi for lunch, afternoon snack and ‘rescue’ pot with vegetables sticks and tofu, coriander and ginger dip. Then early evening you will receive your dinner, noodle or donburi pot, a larger meal with plenty of vegetables. With your evening delivery you will also receive your porridge pot and mid-morning snack for the day after.

You can do the plan for 1 day, but we highly recommend doing this healthy eating plan for 3 consecutive days and even to repeat 2-3 times during January. If you like your lunch delivery at your place of work, but delivered to your home address in the evening we can organise this as long as both addresses are within our deliver zones. We like to offer you 3 days for the price of 2, simply order online to see our delicious meals.

We put our food where our mouth is and therefore we have Feng volunteers who will follow the plan at least once during January, see how they get on Twitter and Facebook.

Eat healthily, tread lightly….
