I designed the 3-2-1 Diet in the summer of 2013, off the traditional, American three square meals
a day after interviewing my parents and two dozen U.S. WWII veterans about their standard
nutritional eating regimen from 1920-1940. What I discovered was interesting. A typical, daily
caloric consumption was composed of:
- 3 servings of protein;
- 2 servings of carbohydrates, and
- 1 serving of fat.
The most important part of this eating regimen is breakfast, where the majority of calories were
consumed. Breakfast was cheaper than lunch and dinner combined, therefore most Americans
commonly had a large breakfast and forwent lunch or dinner due to the Great Depression.
You have lots of choices ...
Choose from the highest concentration of proteins, carbs and fat for breakfast, lunch and dinner
and if your still hungry choose two ( 2 ) healthy snacks. Everything listed provides a proper
breakdown of calories throughout the day.
Why eat 3-2-1?
3-2-1 is my standard cutting diet before summer, which allows me to burn bodyfat, but more
- simple to understand;
- easy to put together, and
- energizes metabolism (burns bodyfat and builds muscle).
