While some eating plans require special gimmicks or expensive diet products, there are diets that are based on simple foods you can find virtually anywhere.

One such eating plan is the Millennium diet, and it comes to us from the mind of Mark Davis, M.D. By observing multitudes of patients, he discovered that when certain dietary factors are removed, rapid weight loss occurs.

And so he created the Millennium diet. However, it still has something common with all the other diets out there – it has both good and bad sides to it.

With that in mind, let’s break down the basics of this diet so you can decide whether it’s right for you or not.

How Does It Work?

The Millennium diet is fairly simple. It focuses on completely removing some weight gain foods, like sugar and high GI carbs, while it keeps other not so harmful foods to a minimum.

This is better than completely excluding food groups, because once you start doing that, one of the most common outcomes is malnutrition.

This diet demands portion control which ultimately leads to a lower calorie intake. Portion control is much easier than counting calories, so that’s a big plus for this diet.

While on the Millennium diet, you’ll be allowed to eat three meals per day, which can include fruit, veggies, whole grains, legumes, skim milk, poultry, fish, low-fat yogurt, light mayonnaise, mustard, diet soda, and coffee.

Exercise is also a big part of this diet. As Mark Davis claims, aerobic exercise will cause the fastest weight loss, so brisk walking or jogging two miles, 3 days per week, is recommended.

Pros

  • This diet offers certain and fast weight loss
  • You won’t have to count your calories, while you’ll learn about portion control
  • No risk of skipping breakfast, which is directly linked to weight loss
  • Doesn’t forbid you from eating certain food groups

Cons

  • The meal plan of this diet won’t provide you with enough calories if you’re physically active
  • Can cause misleading and unrealistic weight loss expectations
  • No recipes are included
  • Doesn’t offer any maintenance guidelines

Conclusion

We recognize the fact that Mark Davis is someone who knows what he’s talking about, yet we can’t help but have a little doubt when it comes to maintaining your weight.

Bottom line, the Millennium diet is a very healthy and efficient one. But since it doesn’t include a long term plan, the pounds you lost are likely to return once you begin eating normally again.
