For the low-carb, fat-adapted crowd

Here's a diet of 2000 calories, 88g protein, 117 g carbohydrate (55g of which is fiber), 134 g fat, meeting all vitamin and mineral requirements, which a registered dietician wouldn't freak out if you tried it, though it's still high in saturated fat. It's almost all nuts and seeds, unlike the steak, eggs and cheese of most diets of this type.

4 oz. pink salmon (canned)
1 oz peanuts
3 Tbsp. sesame seeds
2 tsp whole flax seeds (ground)
1 oz almonds
1.5 c. cooked asparagus
1 c. crimini (portobello) mushrooms
1 medium green  bell pepper
1 oz. pumpkin seeds
3 cloves garlic
2 oz. dark chocolate (70-85% cocoa solids)
5 oz. red wine
1 avocado
1 c. chopped broccoli
1 oz. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. spinach
1/2 c. collard greens
1/2 c. bok choy
1/4 tsp. iodized salt
1 stalk celery
5 leaves fresh basil
2 c. coffee
2 c. green tea
