What foods work best with the Ice Cube Diet

Q: What kind of food works best with the Ice Cube Diet?

A: To be most successful on the Ice Cube Diet we recommend following a balanced diet that is high in complex carbohydrates, lean protein and unsaturated fats. Complex carbohydrates include foods such as whole grain breads, brown rice, oatmeal, sweet potatoes and whole wheat pasta. Proteins such as chicken, low fat cheese, fish, eggs, tofu and turkey should be used in order to have your body feel satisfied, feed your organs and build muscle mass. Unsaturated fats are recommended to help with satiety, increasing your good cholesterol while lowering your bad cholesterol, body temperature control and enhanced digestion. Rich sources include nuts, soybeans, avocado and olive oil. We suggest that you choose simple sugars and saturated fats on a limited basis in your diet.
