    Sorry but this is not healthy. Its like you eat nothing.
    Eat banana only after your workout, if you workout. Else dont.
    Add protein to every meal of yours.
    Eat as many salad as you want, since its calorie free and have nutrition things.
    Dont eat the fruit at night, Better one at the morning with 1 egg and some whites, and he other at evening. Not more than 2 fruits a day.
    Eat healthy fats. Either from olive oil or coconaut oil or from eggs, penaut butter.
    Eat some potato or rice.
    Well there are many things i could say but unless you know your maintenance calories, you cant just eat blind.
    Make some searches about how to find your maintenance calories intake. Then log here in MFP and make a diet plan listing foods i mentioned. You can also make arrangments or replace some foods but this is a general idea.Good luck.!

    Is this diet healthy?
    Breakfast: 1 cup of instant coffee with no sugar + 1 banana
    Lunch: large bowl of salad + 200g of protiens
    Dinner: 2 kinds of fruits

    Did she give you the serving sizes of the fruits for dinner and salads at lunch? The hardest part for me to understand is why all of the protein is to be consumed at lunch.
    I would be asking the dietician to better explain the plan because it doesn't sound very healthy at all, and you have paid her for the consult. I think you would do better to just put your info into MFP and try to meet your macro and calorie target

    sounds like a very bad diet. No lisenced dietician would recomend eating like this

    So...
    A banana for breakfast.
    TWO POUNDS of hamburger for lunch. (that's 8 Big Mac's.)
    An apple and a grape for dinner.

    Sounds pretty idiotic. You should probably get a second opinion.

    ^ 200g is not 2lb. 227g is 1/2lb. 454g is 1lb. Please do your conversions before scaring the OP.

    But yes, I agree, OP, you need a second opinion.

    She said that im considered as obese so according to this she gave me this diet

    I'm obese and losing on 1500 cals/day. What your "dietitian" gave you seems like a more boring version of the bogus 3-day military diet. At least people following that get ice cream.

    You're not in trouble, so I'm not sure what your dietitian is punishing you for.

    I tried to sum up the calories for this diet, the total is 450 cal per day!!!

    Nope, 200g of burger is 600 on its own.

    I am not following this diet anymore, i will start to log in what i eat (healthy food) and counting the calories till i reach 1200 cal and see what happens, tell me about you exercise

    OP--the important thing is that you don't feel well on this diet. You are not supposed to suffer. This is the first problem to fix. I agree not to throw any more money at this person without a second opinion. In the meantime, plug your stats into MFP (it's free) and see what you get. Start there and eat up to the calories given you. Loosely follow what she gave you, eat veggies, a little olive oil, protein, some fruit. Weigh all your food, and see how you feel after a week. In Lebanon you should be on the Mediterraean diet naturally, so I'd follow that, just watch your calories. Best of luck. B)

    Did she mean you to do this EVERY day? On a 5:2 diet you would have this many calories on the 2 fasting days only. And INSTANT coffee - the ultimate insult to a starving person.

    I think she has copied the HCG diet (500 cal) but she replaced some food

    Whatever, this calorie intake is not sustainable 7/7. A hospitalised obese patient under daily supervision would usually have 500 - 800 calories per day and they aren't moving about much. How long are you meant to keep to this? Also may I ask what your height and weight is?

    She shouldn't recommend anything that isn't sustainable and that definitely isn't sustainable.

    Count your calories, weigh your food for accuracy, make wise choices, get a little exercise and save a little calories for goodies. Calories in, calories out, is sustainable and can be a lifestyle change.

    So you scrape in at the top of the overweight band. At this weight you will lose weight on 1300 calories per day even without extra exercise. Ditch the dietitian and find a sensible diet plan. Use MFP to plan and log your daily food. Under 1000 calories per day doesn't even cover your basal metabolism - the energy your body needs just to operate.

    800 calories of protein in one lunch meal?

    That's all you get to eat for the day? I don't think I would be able to eat 200G of protein in one sitting.

    I would seek a second opinion. This doesn't seem right.

    I'm thinking maybe she means 200g of a lean meat containing protein? 200g of straight protein would be a bit... hard to accomplish...


    It could be?

    That would be so few calories!!

    Yikes!

    I try to eat 200 g of protein 2 days a week. But my body comp scale says I have around 150-155 lbs of muscle. It takes all day to get it in and there are 2 protein drinks in the mix

    Sometimes I am just thankful I have a good Doctor after reading what others have.

    Dang...

    Yes she is a registered dietitian she is famous here, i payed 100$ for my first appiontment

    Definitely need to report her !

    With the given plan you are not even going to hit the required 1000 cals per day ! Which is most definitely required to keep your system working. Ease yourself into a calorie deficit. Do not send your body into shock.

    Cheers!
