I will be starting a diet within the next couple of months and weight loss, while a goal, is a secondary goal.  My immediate goal is to develop one that's low in sodium primarily, and other bad things like fat, saturated fat, cholesterol.  
I am a mostly meat and cheese eating, green leafy vegetable hating carnivore, so it won't be easy, accordingly, I have decided that anything that I can identify that meets both my low sodium et al needs, and tastes good, if I have to eat the same thing every day of the year, I'll do it.    Burnout is something I'm sure people will mention, but aside from that....
I presume my BMR is around 2200 calories.  To avoid body starvation mode I plan to eat 2500 at least(and burn 3000, but the exercise program is a story for another time).   Insofar as meeting sodium et al goals, an idea I have is to eat the same cereal for breakfast every day with milk, which would account for about 500 of the 2500 calories, and get at least 1000 more from a smoothie( made from yogurt/frozen fruit/orange juice/whatever other similar items), consumed throughout the day such that it totals 1000.  The other 1000 would come from things I haven't determined yet.  Perhaps the healthiest possible others I can think of that will touch on meats and other food groups not addressed by the cereal and smoothie, I'll have to work on this as I go.
But for now - what opinion do you all have on making the cereal and smoothie be a standard daily consumption?  There is a Kashi cereal ( that I found that has no sodium.  Yogurt and frozen fruit are pretty low sodium, too and certainly no cholesterol, so certainly those meet that part of my goal.   Anyone know of any problems with having yogurt or frozen fruit every single day on a long term basis? is the yogurt I was thinking of.

If you have Lyme, this doesn't sound like a very good diet at all.

You should research the Burrascano report, read up on immune support suggestions
and any number of Lyme books available that will have diet info.

Your main food source should be fresh veggies. I've had to do this and have lost about
14lbs in the last 2 months.

Many naturopaths will suggest limiting your dairy and wheat intake severally.

Good luck with your diet and seek alot more advice!

My naturopath (recommended by my LLMD) had me on a diet based on your blood type. There is a book about it and lots of info on the internet. Some find it controversial.

I did stick with the diet and felt better for three months. I also lost weight. But I couln't eat red meat, pasta or potatoes. (lots of rice and chicken)

I slowly started eating more of a normal diet.

Good side effect of the diet is I don't like to drink soda anymore and tend to eat better. After you've stopped putting bad food in your body it lets you know whats good and whats not when you go off the diet.
