“I’m trying to lose a few pounds”…I’m sure we’ve all heard this before. Your colleagues, family members, or best friends have uttered these words with great anxiety, concerned about their bulging waistline. Everyone is always in search of that one magical diet that will get them fast results. But out of the thousands of diets available out there, how do you know what really works and what doesn’t? And do any of them promise results in just seven days?
“Keep foods like fruits visible on the counter and put all else away. The foods that are visible will be eaten and those that are not will be forgotten about (or less likely to be eaten). Out of sight, out of mind.” — Christopher Mohr, PhD, RD

“Your body begins to work differently. This study proves that small amounts of nourishment throughout the day are better than the same amount of food concentrated in three big sittings. If we feed the body at regular intervals we send a signal to the body that it doesn’t have to store calories. Conversely, when we skip meals we send just the opposite signal for the body to store calories, creating a negative effect on the metabolism.” — Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen, co-founder and Medical Director at Take Shape For Life
I’m female 134 lbs with 37.7% body fat. Following your instructions, I am allowed 90g of protein, 149g of carbs and 27g of fat. Is that balance correct? I thought I would be allowed fewer carbs and more protein. Loved the article. I’m trying to lose 22 lbs of fat and gain 13 lbs of lean muscle.

This liquorice-flavoured root vegetable is packed with vitamin C, potassium, and manganese and has long been used as a remedy for digestive problems.

“I reached my goal weight after I stopped routinely buying snacks at the grocery store. If I wanted a bag of chips or a candy bar, I had to walk to the store to get it. That inconvenience usually made me ignore my cravings.” —Heather Del Baso, Worcester, MA
Weight loss is 70% what you eat and 30% exercise. Many people often think exercise is more important in weight loss and they disregard the healthy diet part. That is why Step #3 is to move more. You don’t have to train for a marathon to lose weight, however exercise will speed up the process and, perhaps more importantly, tone your body.

Like the first day, the second day is ‘All veggies day’. You can eat nothing but vegetables and only vegetables. You can eat to your heart’s content, feel your stomach filled up with vegetables if you need to. Boiled or raw vegetables will do. You can even begin your day with a boiled potato and a tea spoon of butter. This is done in order to give the body enough energy and carbohydrates for the day. But after that only raw and boiled vegetables.
