The Hot Latin Diet

chiliThe Hot Latin Diet was created by Dr. Manny Alvarez, who noticed that Latin immigrants were slender when they first came to the United States, and then became overweight after eating an American diet for a couple of years. In his research, he looked for answers to how a culture that is celebrated with food remained so slim. He discovered the secret of seven superfoods that are prevalent in their diets that became the foundation for this diet. His claim is that in six short weeks that you can lose weight, reduce your hunger, and speed your metabolism.

The diet eliminates simple carbohydrates like sugar and processed snacks like chips, and instead focuses on complex carbohydrates like whole grains, vegetables, fruit, and beans. It is also advised that you eat fish for your midday meal, because studies show that those who eat fish at lunch eat over 10% less at their evening meal.

These are the seven superfoods that are included in this diet – avocado, cilantro, garbanzo beans, chili pepper, cinnamon, garlic, and tomatillos. These foods are supposed to detoxify your body due to the antioxidant properties, help you to feel full longer, and boost energy. Recipes are included in the book which sells for $23.95 at most retailers. As far as exercises to go along with this diet program there are just general suggestions and no clear guidelines.

The pros of the program are that the meals were designed by a certified nutritionist in order for you to have a healthy balance of nutrition. The recipes are also very easy to prepare and full of flavor. It also emphasizes healthy carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, and wholesome proteins.

It does not seem necessary to base your entire diet around these seven superfoods, because there are many superfoods that are great for you. If you do add these foods to your current diet, however, you will probably see some of the same benefits. Also, for those who are looking for a long term low-fat diet, this diet is just that and very flavorful, so you may want to give this a try.
