The Schwarzbein Principle was created by Dr. Diana Schwarzbein, an endocrinologist. Her plan has two phases, "Healing" and "Maintenance". You remain in the healing phase until optimum health has been regained and then move into the maintenance phase. As with most other lowcarb diets, this is not simple a weight loss diet but a new lifestyle.
Dr. Schwarzbein's plan is based upon four essential food groups: Proteins, Fats, Non-starchy vegetables, and Carbohydrates (whole grain). She stresses the importance of eating "real" food as opposed to man-made processed foods and eating in balance. There is no measuring or counting with this plan, you simply balance the amount of each food group at every meal.
