Yeti or not, we’re unleashing The Bigfoot Diet – a healthy combination of great meals and daily fitness that’s huge on hiking!

Diet.com medical director Dr. Robert Kushner notes, “What can we learn about nutrition from the Bigfoot Diet? That plant-based foods like nuts, fruits and berries are good for you and the less processed foods you eat, the better.”

“Plant-based protein is generally low in fat and saturated fat making it a healthy alternative to meat-based proteins,” Schultz says. Diet.com expert contributor Susan Burke March MS, RD, LD/N, CDE chimes in: “Americans get more than double the amount of protein necessary for good health. I do eat fish, occasionally.

“Higher-fiber vegetarian diets are also great for your heart. As an added bonus, a veggie-rich diet also improves your sex life!”

Thanks Susan… that helps explain where little Bigfoots come from.

Diet.com nutritionist Shauna Schultz agrees.

“Bigfoot has it right when it comes to a healthy diet.” she says. “Bigfoot adheres to a diet that's heavy on veggies and while he needs far more calories than the average person, it is the quality of his diet that takes the prize.

“Sticking with whole, nutritious, back-to-basic foods along with an active lifestyle adds up to a healthy lifestyle – we can all learn from Bigfoot when it comes to healthy living!”

Diet.com fitness pro Katrina Hodgson notes, “Bigfoot may be big, scary and hairy but he has taken the right steps toward fitness!

“Bigfoot walks everywhere! For every mile Bigfoot walks he burns about 80 calories!

16 pounds! If you're not close to your work then take a lunch break and walk for 20 minutes. “Bigfoot’s lifestyle helps him ward off cancer, obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure; it also helps him boost muscle tone, improve his bone strength and much more!”
