Here is an excert I found on the net:
Great Australian Diet Overview
After studying the eating habits of cultures throughout the world, Dr John Tickell has come up with The Great Australian Diet (GAD) a 91 day program that promises to help our eight participants shed over 300 kilos between them.
The main focus of the diet is the three ACE Skills:
A major factor in the Great Australian Diet is movement, but unlike most diets you only have to move (walk) for one percent of your time. That works out to be 100 minutes a week.
Every couple of days do SBWs (Strong is Better than Weak), which are strengthening exercises.
Every couple of days you do OUMs (Other Useful Movements) which are stretching exercises.
The SBWs and the OUM’s are in essence the great B.A.T. Exercises - Bottom, Arms and Tummy.
The GAD is the only program that awards points for laughing, hugging your kids, watching a sunset and for being good to others.
It outlines a list of activities that participants should include in their lives and encourages you to do at least one or two each day.
The Great Australian Diet focuses on four key points and advocates getting back to basics:
Basic and bonus foods — BASIC food is plant (vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, seeds) BONUS food is not.
Two-thirds of your diet should be BASIC and one-third should be BONUS.
Rule of 15 — eat small amounts of at least 15 plant foods every day — plant food includes fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains.
4. Food should be low HI (Human Interference Index) rather than Low GI:
The Human Interference Index (HI) means how much or how badly have humans interfered with your food, changing it from natural to not-so-natural
I am reading the book at the moment - but basically it is eating as much food that has little or no human interference ie lots of fruit and veg.
Two-thirds of a whole is what it means. So basically have to eat 2/3 of fruit and veg a day.
What is a fruit diet? Do you eat fruit all day?
