ABOUT THE DIET
Back To Top

Created by Dr. William Hay in the early 20th century, the Hay diet is founded on the concept that the body experiences greater difficulty digesting more than one of a certain type of micronutrient at the same time. ie, the body will find it more difficult to digest a food item which contains both protein and carbohydrates. As a result, eating such foods will cause our digestive systems to work inefficiently and store bodyfat as a result. This conclusion was drawn from the fact that the eating habits of our ancestors would have not be as complex as they are today, and since we evolved from them, changing our eating habits to those of modern times will cause unwanted gains in bodyfat not seen in the age of the caveman.

Essentially, the hay diet says there are a number of things wrong with modern eating habits, but not as obvious as the ones you may thing. Dr. Hay believed that the body has difficulty eliminating waste as a result of eating too few alkaline forming vegetabls and fruits, mixing incompatible foods as briefly described above, and that with a few changes this can be taken care of. Since the Hay diet is a large critic of modern eating, processed foods should be cut down or eliminated. By doing this, your body will improve in its ability to eliminate waste.

DIET GUIDELINES
Back To Top

60% of this diet consists of fruits and vegetables. Aside from this, you should eat other foods containing proteins and starches, but they shouldn't be eaten together or within three or four hours of one another. Space your food intake out evenly throughout the day to keep adequate blood sugar levels.

EXERCISE DURING THE DIET
Back To Top

No exercise during this diet is specified. This is the kind of diet which is said to work solely on nutrition alone. It is a diet for life, and if you can keep it up, they say, you will be all the leaner for doing so.

ADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

There is no restriction of quantity of food in this diet, just quality. There are also no set eating periods during this diet. You are allowed to snack frequently to keep energy levels high. You will also likely lose some weight on this diet, which should be expected, as the diet is comprised of not really anything unhealthy.

DISADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

This diet is just hard to follow! I can't imagine how difficult it would be to find the correct charts and tables to show which foods contain protein, which contain starches, and which contain both. Once you get such a table, no the exact chemical makeup of each piece of food you eat, and think you can follow this diet successfully, go ahead and give it a try. Although it has yet to be proven scientifically, it is a step ahead of the norm in fad diets of today.

CONCLUSION
Back To Top

This diet is better than usual, but in an age well the usual is as poor as it is as far as diets are concerned, that doesn't say an awful lot. I wouldn't try to avoid this diet, but I wouldn't place much hope in it, either.
