Continued from Kellie Pickler’s Diet and Workout.
Kellie Pickler‘s vegetarian diet needs work. How much work? It depends. If you want to use Kellie Pickler’s vegetarian diet to lose weight in 3 weeks, you can probably use it as is. If, on the other hand, you are looking for ways to lose 20 pounds in 1 month, well, in that case, your best bet is sugar detox, and Kellie Pickler’s vegetarian diet would need to change a lot to help you accomplish the latter goal.
But what is exactly wrong with Kellie Pickler’s vegetarian diet? First the good news: Her diet is low in calories, which is always important for those who need to lose weight. The bad news is that the composition of her diet is far from ideal. If you do not need to lose weight, you can probably use Kellie Pickler’s vegetarian diet to maintain your current weight, but in my opinion, the said plan is too high in simple carbohydrates and low in protein, which is not the combination you want to have when you are trying to lose weight.
Having said that, I think she looks great, and since she does not need to lose weight, her diet works for her, but let’s take a close look at Kellie Pickler’s vegetarian diet and how it can be improved.
Breakfast (about 273 calories) She says she is not big on breakfast, which is the first thing that needs to change if you want to use her diet to lose weight. You pretty much have to be big on breakfast – and your breakfast should be substantial – if you want a drama-free weight loss experience (say hello to the healthy breakfast options, if you do not know what I am talking about). She eats Kashi for breakfast, by the way.
Snack (about 220 calories) Fried okra. Do I need to point out that an organic salad with some protein is a much better snack than fried okra? There are many healthy snacking options out there – think low-fat cheese, nuts, quality protein bars, beef jerky, boiled eggs, canned fish, etc – you do not need fried snacks.
Lunch (about 796 calories) Since she is a vegetarian, instead of going for a regular burrito, her burrito does not contain any meat. It is a bean burrito with some cheese.
Dinner (about 250 calories) Pasta and tomatoes.
Total daily calories: About 1,539 calories.
As for exercise, Kellie says that she does not remember the last time she has visited a gym. Not good. But when she works out, her exercise of choice is hot yoga. [source: OK!]
