The omnivore diet is considered a balanced diet for many people. Participants may choose vegetarian and non-vegetarian food choices when using this diet. The omnivore diet incorporates a balanced intake of meat on three days of the week, accompanied by salads and cooked vegetables. Certain fruits, especially those high in water content such as watermelon and cantaloupe, may be eaten as well. Balanced amounts of carbohydrates, such as whole wheat bread, baked potatoes and rice, may be added in certain meals also. If the participant desires dairy products, they may add these to their diet and adjust their consumption of the other food groups if necessary. This diet is intended for long term use for a healthy lifestyle and proper weight maintenance.
