The Delabos Diet was created by the French doctor Alain Delabos in 1986. This diet is based on the chrononutrition principle; which says that foods must be eaten at the right time of day according to a biological clock. Eat fatty foods in the morning, heavy foods at noon, sweet foods in the afternoon, and nothing or very little in the evening. Eat breakfast in the first hour after getting up, wait five hours for lunch, and another five hours before eating a sweet snack. Wait at least 90 minutes after your snack before eating supper. If you aren't hungry skip supper. And don't eat anything at all for at least 90 minutes before going to sleep.

It is quite important to eat the right foods at the right time. Breakfast means bread, cheese, butter, and on occasion bacon and eggs. For lunch eat meat or fish, and perhaps starchy foods and green vegetables. Eat fruits or fruity foods and vegetable oils such as peanuts, avocado with some dressing, or olives at snack time. For supper you may eat green vegetables, fish, seafood, or white meat in small quantities. The Delabos Diet quite clearly defines portion size based on your height. You'll need to consult the documentation to know exactly what to eat. For example, dieters will eat 1 to 4 eggs. Two meals a week have no restrictions.

The Delabos Diet has the advantage of being balanced. Because dieters are allowed to eat everything, they can stay on course for quite some time. Among the disadvantages for many is eating cheese in the morning. This is one complicated diet and dieters spend a lot of time calculating portions. To get you started on the calculations remember that there are 454 grams in a pound.

Here is a two sample menu: Menu 1 Breakfast: 60 to 140 grams of blue cheese, 50 to 90 grams of whole grain bread and 10 to 20 grams of butter. Tea or coffee. Lunch: 150 to 290 grams of beef stew and from one half to two bowls of French fries. Your mid-afternoon snack is a rounded tablespoon of peanut butter and 250 milliliters of creamed chestnuts. Fast for supper. Remember, it takes just about 30 grams or milliliters to make one ounce.

A quick look at the Amazon web site revealed only two Delabos diet books. They were both in French and the used copies were even more expensive than the new ones.
