One-day CRON diet menu

Mega Oatmeal Breakfast

Calorie Restriction with Optimum Nutrition (CRON) is a diet that not only can make you thin, but there is enough scientific evidence that it may also help you to live longer. The idea behind the CRON diet is to eat slightly less food than you normally would, while meeting 100% of all your nutritional requirements. A CRON diet requires the use of nutritional software such as CRON-o-Meter to make sure that the food provides complete nutrition.

Here is an example of a one-day menu published by Robert Cavanaugh, a member of the Calorie Restriction Society. He generally eats twice a day, but has a fruit snack during the day. The following menu totals 1809 calories with a Protein/Fat/Carbohydrate ratio of 18/27/55. All nutrients in this menu exceed the RDA except niacin which is 94% RDA. Fiber content is 40 grams.
