About Food Lovers Diet
Now, let’s dig deeper into what this Food Lovers Diet can do.
From the start, beginners will get to learn about the basic of nutrition: fast carbs and slow carbs, and why is it important to know the difference.
Then, there goes the Fat Loss Plate introduction:
It’s the one thing dieters are going to focus on.
Here, their knowledge of fast and slow carbs will be used. This plan demands them to pair fast or slow carbs with lean protein and healthy fats in every meal.
Basically, the overall plan is similar with other healthy diets out there:
Yes, you’re still allowed to enjoy your favorite meal, but it won’t easily let you escape from consuming vegetables and its healthy gang; fruit, lean proteins, whole grain, and low-fat dairy products. Healthy fats are included in the list as well, but the portion must be controlled—especially when combined with other nutrition.
The plan can actually be modified for vegans and is diabetes-friendly. It will also help maintain your heart’s health.
This weight loss program puts a disclaimer on each page of its countless success stories that goes like;
These results are not typical, but they are achievable, depending on your level of commitment.
The message board located at the bottom of the page emphasizes the benefit only their system has.
Food Lovers Fat Loss System is based on healthy eating and an exercise program, which are essential for healthy weight loss.
Once understanding how Fat Loss Plate per day works, dieters can finally begin the war:
The 21 Day Metabolism Makeover.
If you’ve succeeded with the beginner plan, an advanced one is waiting.
It’s a lifetime maintenance program for the food enthusiasts.
But the expected result itself varies based on the starting weight of the dieters themselves, but the most successful one will be able to lose up to 3 pounds per week.
Be Aware of The Incorrect Assumption
If you visit the website and see a picture of a chocolate cake, thinking you can always eat it as much as you used to, stop the thought right there!
Darl, it’s time to open your eyes and think logically.
No diet that requires no effort can be successful.
You either maintain your meal or start working out.
Let’s go back to the tempting chocolate cake. It’s true that during the diet you can still eat them, but it is when you have reached the maintenance phase. That means you first have to succeed in containing your great food craving desire and completed the first phase; the 21 Day Metabolism Makeover.
Even so, the consumption is still under one condition; only in orderly portions (if combined with other food).
Moreover, through the whole plan, it’s advised for dieters to skip not only the chocolate cake and friends, but they’re also encouraged to choose sugar-free snacks for alternative.
How Food Lovers Diet Work Efficiently
Even when you’ve scrolled this far, I’ll be brave to say that some of you still question how this Fat Loss System that doesn’t seem to make sense can bring you the desired result.
Carbs are the source of energy everybody needs. But when you shove ‘em down each time you have meal, or pair them with incorrect nutrition…
The fat settles on your stomach, arm, or thighs are what you’d get instead of the energy you’re aiming for.
Let me tell you the secret tip a.k.a the essential point of a successful Food Lovers Diet:
The right combination of food.
Ron Dudek, Ph.D. once claimed that the right food could eventually turn your body into a fat-burning machine. He is a Provida’s consultant who’s paid to review the Food Lovers Diet plan—also an obesity and diabetes researcher currently working at East Carolina University.
He further explained that eating too many carbs all at once—like majority of Americans do—generates upsurge in blood sugar and boost in insulin. The latter is the one increasing fat sediment, marking it as the ultimate culprit for obesity.
However, when your carbs intake is controlled—by combining it with lean protein—insulin won’t stick to your body. So rather than depositing them, it’d burn the fat instead.
Then, what kind of carbs that you should choose?
You can go for both, but still with the right pairings.
Slow carbs—the preferred one—are metabolized much slower by our body than fast carbs. The process won’t bring spikes in insulin or blood sugar, unlike fast carbs which transforms into them much quicker.
How do those things matter?
As I’ve stated above that this diet plan is focusing on the right pairing of food, your chosen carb will affect its pairings in one meal.
Let’s say you’re eating fast carbs. Then, the amount of its companion—protein or healthy fat—needs to be modified to match your carbs.
You need to remember the principle:
Manage well your carbs and eat them together with protein or healthy fats to dull the effect caused by blood sugar and insulin.
See? Now you know how important it is to have a proportional meal each time.
What Exactly A Fat Loss Plate is?
Being mentioned frequently from the first section will somehow make this superstar famous, don’t ya think?
As you already know, the Fat Loss Plate actually stands for the everyday meal proportion a.k.a the portion control tool from Provida. In this case, protein holds the utmost important part of the whole nutrition, along with fast or slow carbs and optional healthy fats.
The best part is:
No fat grams or counting calories is needed.
But, you still have to maintain the portions.
Below are three options this diet plan offers:
|Version A||1 protein + 1 fast carb||Turkey Sandwich|
|Version B||1 protein + 1 fast carb + 1 slow carb||Spaghetti with Meatballs and Side Salad|
|Version C||1 protein + 3 slow carbs||Entree Salad with Grilled Chicken|
What about the healthy fats?
You gotta go slow on this one. Only one tablespoon of it is allowed per meal—and you must pair it with low-fat carbs and protein.
And… you’re allowed to snack!
Don’t get hyped up first, though.
The snack we’re talking about here is food whose calories is around 150-250 cal or 1 portion of a whole food; an apple. They’re the only option of snack you can choose for the first 5 days of the program.
But if you’re patient, the next choice—starting from day 6—they like to call as “Accelerator Snacks” is any snack that has to consist of 7 grams of protein at least.
The Fat Loss Plate Menu
You may have read the table of choice above, but your options of food aren’t limited to those three versions.
Below is the alternative food for each nutrition you’ll need:
rice, potatoes, bagels, couscous, pasta, English muffins, cherries, apples, blueberries, grapes, and dried fruits.
broccoli, peppers, carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, artichokes, green beans, eggplant, squash, asparagus, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, limes, and lemon.
fish, eggs, low-fat dairy, sirloin steak, pork tenderloin, skinless poultry breast, and extra lean ground beef.
cheese and cream cheese, butter and peanut butter, sausage, bacon, mayonnaise, nuts and seeds, light salad dressing.
cucumbers, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, bok choi, spinach, radish, mushrooms, sprouts, chili peppers, celery, onions.
Besides them, you’re also allowed to consume coffee, tea, and club soda—in a limited amount.
What about the food I should avoid?
“Most processed food, alcohol, soda, food with high sodium, saturated fats and the trans one, and enriched flours.”
According to this Fat Loss Program, those food mentioned above got a higher chance to slow your metabolism.
The 21 Day Metabolism Makeover
The core of Food Lovers Diet is here.
During these days, beginners will be given different set of diet strategy that aims to divert their lifestyle to a much healthier one. The simple tips won’t only help them develop healthy habits, but the greater benefit is:
It supports your primary goal—a long-term weight loss.
The suggested habits vary from eating breakfast, drinking lots of water, consuming more fiber to getting enough sleep. And there’s still a lot more…
For instance, you’ll be recommended to try using borage oil while maintaining your healthy food’s intake—for losing fat quicker—and follow the workout DVDs or online workout videos they provide.
The eating schedule will be 3 meals per day with snacking in every 2-3 hours and is of course, based on the Fat Loss Plate. However, the maximum calories per day need to be followed; 1,500 for men and only 1,200 for women.
You can relax more during this phase.
However, the maintenance plan will only happen when you successfully finished its very first program—the 21 Day Metabolism Makeover.
Certain food previously prohibited in the makeover program such as alcohol, fried foods, sugar, and refined flour are now allowed, but are strongly discouraged.
