The Calorie Shifting Diet is a revolutionary new approach to weight loss. You can lose upwards of 20 pounds per month on this diet.
Unlike other diet regimens that require you to reduce your intake of calories or carbohydrates, this diet allows you to eat as much food as you desire from a variety of foods from all four food groups. There are really only a few basic rules to this diet. However, it is the flexibility of these rules that provides for an extremely satisfying diet, that not only produces rapid results, but also keeps you feeling motivated to stay on the diet.
1. You are required to eat four full meals every day. No snacking in between.
2. Each meal must be spaced out by at least 2.5 to 3 hours in between each.
3. You are allowed to eat as much food as you want at each meal until you are completely satisfied, but not until you are too full.
4. You must drink at least 10 glasses of water every day.
5. You must generate a personalized meal plan that consists of a variety of foods from all four food groups.
6. You are required to take a mandatory 3-day break from the diet, every 2 weeks. So that means you will follow the diet for 11 days, and then take the next 3 days off, during which you can eat anything you want, as long as you only eat until you are satisfied, but not too full. Then you may resume the diet again for another 11 days, before your next 3-day break.
You can reasonably expect to lose 9 pounds every 11 days on this diet. That is just shy of 1 pound per day!
Does this all sound too good to be true? How can you lose nearly a pound a day while following such a seemingly liberal diet?
Calorie shifting is based on the principle that you can trigger your body to go into fat burning mode, at will, simply by manipulating the types of food that you eat at each meal. By shifting the types of calories from meal to meal, you basically are achieving a state of simulated nutritional deprivation, which in turn cause your metabolism to tap into your body's fat reserves to compensate for the perceived deficit. By withholding and reintroducing nutrients into your diet at the proper intervals, you can achieve a sustained state of sustained weight loss.
The primary reason for requiring you take a 3-day break from the diet every 2 weeks is that most nutritionists and dieticians agree that too much rapid weight loss is unsafe and unhealthy. Therefore, this 3-day break addresses the issue by giving your body a chance to rest and stabilize from the rapid weight loss you will have been experiencing.
One hint: If you start your diet on a Monday, then your three day breaks will fall on every other Friday through Sunday! What could be better than to have every other weekend off from the diet? This way you can go out and enjoy food on the weekends, guilt free!
