If you don’t know the answer, you need to know about a simple, inexpensive way to make sure. Every time. Every day. And I’ll show you why and how this simple, doctor-proven technique can be your most powerful weapon in your fight against fat.
The reason why this is the situation is because individuals are inclined to pursue shortcuts. The same things that have made us a world full of unhealthy, fat individuals have also made us impatient to some degree.
DENSITY: Go for grub with an energy density of two or less. To calculate this, simply divide the calories by the weight in grams (per serving). Stay at it and watch the pounds melt faster.
After the first two weeks, carbohydrates are slowly added to the diet and weight loss drops to 1-2 pounds per week. In this point, Dr. Atkins provides a list of foods in 5 gram increments and pushes more vegetables in this phase. Phase two is continued until the person on the diet is 5-10 pounds from their goal weight.
The goals of this first phase is to induce “benign dietary ketosis”, this is when fat metabolites show up in the urine where they can be detected with Ketostix. When people are in the state of fastest way to get into ketosis, their appetite cravings are diminished. The second goal is to stabilize blood sugar and the third and final goal is to have rapid weight loss.
CORTISOL: Prolonged stress leads to high levels of cortisol which makes you crave junk foods. Solution: deal with long-standing stressors. As for short-lived ones, treat yourself to an oil massage.
I felt that the woman could very definitely see a decent amount of weight loss and changes in her body after only a month on Nutrisystem. She was reasonably slim to start with, so even a 10 pound weight loss (especially with some toning) was going to make a noticeable difference.
