"The best thing about the eDiets Summer Fresh Eating Plan is that the recipes have been specially designed to incorporate as many fresh and delicious fruits and vegetables of the season as possible," Pam says "No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks. Out for summer, out till fall, we might not come back at all." -- Alice Cooper

Break out that suntan lotion folks, because summer is officially here. Even if your school days are now just a distant memory, you can still take a summer vacation from boring diet foods. eDiets has captured all the flavors that make this season such a special time of year and combined them into a single approach to healthy eating. You can delight your taste buds and trim your waistline with this limited-edition healthy eating plan that is perfect when the weather is hot.

"We’ve taken the best of summer fresh fruits and vegetables and combined them with lean proteins in dishes that are perfect for grilling," says eDiets Director of Nutrition Services, Pamela Ofstein.

According to Pam, the eDiets Summer Fresh Eating Plan provides a balanced approach to nutrition that is based on the food pyramid as well as the basic recommendations from the American Heart Association. This innovative approach to healthy eating provides:

50-65 percent of your calories from carbohydrates.

20-25 percent of your calories from protein.

Less than 30 percent of your calories from fat.

While the calories are controlled to help you meet your weight-loss needs, the flavors are completely unrestrained. And best of all, instead of slaving over a hot oven, you can head outdoors and get the thrill of the grill.

"The best thing about the eDiets Summer Fresh Eating Plan is that the recipes have been specially designed to incorporate as many fresh and delicious fruits and vegetables of the season as possible," Pam says.
