Forget measuring cups and scales, a Danish dietician has created what is being called the simplest diet in the world. Suzy Wengel, a dietician and the CEO of a biotech company, wrote a book called The Scandi Sense Diet, which is based on this simple approach:
Each meal should consist of four handfuls: One of protein, one of carbs, two of vegetables … and a spoonful of fat. No counting, no logging, no measuring -- just use your palm to determine how much to eat.
Wengel says she lost 88 pounds in 10 months by following this diet and has kept the weight off since. She estimates that the handful plan translates to about 1,500 calories a day for women and 2,000 for men.
