The No-Cooking Diet

Dieting is difficult enough without putting yourself in the kitchen where temptation is at every turn. If dieting is your primary interest, a good rule to follow is to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible.
All of the food in this diet is either raw (as a fruit) or needs no more preparation than putting it on a plate. Naturally the menus are limited, but if variety is not vital to you, this diet will work well for you.
