The 100 Diet Plan

You may have heard of the newest diet fad, “The 100 Diet Plan.” Registered Dietician, Laura Jeffers joined Natalie from the Cleveland Clinic to discuss it.

  • The 100 diet is gaining in popularity because it will make you lose weight quickly, but you likely won’t keep the weight off long term.
  • While most people do overeat carbs and sugars, to do this diet in a healthy way, people would need to really educate themselves.
  • Limiting goods with added sugars can be a good thing, but dieters shouldn’t limit foods with natural sugars, such as fruits, as strictly.
  • The diet doesn’t mention protein much, but to stay healthy, dieters should educate themselves on healthy protein consumption.


How does it work? You limit the amount of excess (not naturally found in food) sugars. According to this diet plan, you should eat no more than 100 sugar calories per day.

Use this equation:  Total Carbohydrate Grams x 4 = Sugar Calories
