A group of experts are discussing and considering a meal plan for the week that follows the principles of the Mediterranean diet, during a meeting facilitated by ChatGPT.
For years, nutritionists have been uncertain about the most effective weight loss diet. While multiple scientific studies discuss the benefits of different diets, a ChatGPT chatbot suggests a weekly meal plan based on the Mediterranean diet.
Although some nutrition experts agree that ChatGPT has identified a healthy eating pattern, others doubt its nutritional value and feasibility due to affordability and practicality concerns.
The Daily Mail editors have requested that ChatGPT provide a tailored diet plan for weight loss that includes a specific system for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The plan should also include a detailed breakdown of the recommended calorie distribution for each meal.
Artificial intelligence followed the Mediterranean diet which consists of vegetables, whole grains, and nuts and is believed to promote good health in the Mediterranean region.
For breakfast, you can choose from Greek yogurt with berries and nuts, an avocado shake, and a vegetable omelet. For lunch, there are options such as chicken salad, lentil soup, and goat cheese rolls. Dinner suggestions range from grilled shrimp and vegetables, and grilled chicken with sweet potatoes, to baked cod with quinoa.
The details of the weekly meal plan are as follows:
For breakfast, Greek yogurt with fresh berries and almonds. I also had a piece of whole-grain toast with a small serving of avocado spread.
For lunch, you can have a salad made with grilled chicken breast pieces, mixed vegetables, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and feta cheese. The salad should be tossed with olive oil and lemon juice.
