Yes. But I myself am too lazy to take the time to drive to the gym and workout for an hour every day. My program is set up for you to do some in home exercises in reasonable amounts. If you like to go to the gym, that's fine too. Just leave me at home, please.
OK, wait for it . . . that depends. Seriously though. everyone is different and everyone's body is different and it depends on how well you stick to my plan for your body. I lost 40 pounds in 2 months. Honestly, for my body anyway, I would not want to go any faster than that. One could argue that may be too fast. But you can adjust this diet to your pace for weight loss. However, this is not a starve diet. I want you to get enough nutrition to stay healthy and my plan is set up to get you a well-balanced nutritious diet. Also don't just focus on pounds lost. If you are 170 pounds losing 40 pounds is a much higher percentage of your body weight than if you are 240 pounds and lost 40 pounds. So a person who is 170 pounds may feel they aren't losing as many pounds a week as they want, but they may be losing as much percentage-wise each week as the person who weights 240 pounds.
Good question. I suppose the answer is somewhat relative. I mean there are rules and principles at play here. Every diet has rules or there would be no diet just a free-for-all where you can eat whatever and whenever you want. I have tried to make this plan detailed, but simple, and principle based. I have set this up by design to allow you to eat 5 or 6 times a day. But you do need to follow my plan and the rules of the diet to succeed, as with any diet. And this diet really works!!!
Nope. There is no special herb, potion, magic root, magic beans, etc. I have carefully prepared this diet plan for you based on sound principles and on the basis of science. And it works! No special gimmicks.
No. I am not a fan of the no carb diet. Listen, your body needs healthy carbs--the right kind of carbs in moderate portions. Carbs are essential for building and maintaining muscle mass and the more lean muscle you have the more calories you actually burn even at a resting state. Adding muscle increases your metabolic rate, and thus, losing it lowers your metabolic rate. If you don't eat carbs your body will cannibalize your muscle to get the glucose it needs. The goal here is to lose fat, not muscle.
No. Although there are often a few components that cross over among several diets, this diet is based on its own principles and differs from these. This diet was created independently and without referencing these diets.
Yes. I believe this is more than a diet, it is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. With some diets you have to do strange things or avoid foods that are needed long term for your health. After completing such a diet, some people just put the weight back on as soon as they they go back to regular food. Not with my plan. With a little more flexibility and adjustment once you are maintaining weight (instead of trying to lose it), you can continue on with the principles of my plan for a lifetime.
Well, quite possibly. . . Initially anyway, until your body adjusts to your new eating plan. Here's the thing. You can't keep eating the way you are and expect to lose weight. A diet is about making a change. So initially, your body may try to tell you that you are starving to death because you are not eating your regular 2 bowls of sugar cereal while watching your favorite show. But that is just ridiculous! You are not starving to death. Your body wants to maintain the status quo, and we are trying to change it! My plan allows you to eat 5 to 6 times a day. I believe that your body should be healthy as you lose weight.
I am so glad you asked. It shouldn't but I guess that will depend on you and how you eat after you reach your goal weight. My diet plan is more than a diet plan, it is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. You can follow my basic plan forever with a little more leeway and flexibility for maintaining weight as opposed to when you are losing it. So no, you shouldn't gain your weight back unless you go and do something crazy such as eating the way you were before my diet.
