The hypothesis of this diet is that when you change the way you eat, exercise and live you will be healthier. It’s goal is to determine why the dieter over eats and help them overcome this problem.
Ease for Dieter*
Medium – Hard
- The first stage is a quick stop to foods that you may be used to.
- You will need to know your way around the kitchen.
- During each phase you’ll eat three meals, one snack, take supplements and drink lots of water.
- Phase 1 is about 4 weeks and the dieter prepares themselves for the next phases by being more active, getting rid of 6 problem foods (alcohol, soda, trans fats, fried foods, white bread, and full-fat milk and yogurt) and increasing the number of calories burned.
- Phase 2 is about 4 weeks and increases the dieters activity level, considers the emotional side of hunger and introduces portion control and “anything goes calories”. The dieter can eat more if they do more activity. Alcohol can be consumed and counted in your “anything goes calories”.
- Phase 3 is ongoing. The dieter is encouraged to increase activity, cut back on saturated fat, sodium, added sugar, eliminate trans fats and include wholesome foods. Diet has graduated phases
