Modern diets claim to make you as strong as a caveman, as agile as a fireman and even trim without hunger! Men and women alike are trying out various diets in hopes of gaining muscle, improving energy, and of course, shedding pounds. But does the question “What should I eat to lose weight?” annoy you as much as it annoys me?
Walking through the local supermarket, one is likely to see magazines, snacks and supplements promoting ‘Eat THIS to lose weight!’ Superfoods, smoothies, seeds, teas, galore! We live in a time where more is more. And don’t even get me started with all the ever-changing research.
However, the question both men and women should be asking is: “What should I avoid to lose weight?” Eliminating problematic foods from one’s diet is a much better approach to lose extra pounds. But where to start? The opinions about the optimal diet are plentiful and passionate.
A recent study published on the Journal of the American Medical Association followed subjects over a year while consuming either a high fat low carbohydrate diet or a high carbohydrate low fat diet and the results showed that there was little difference. Both groups lost around a total of six pounds. What do these diets have in common?
Quote from the article:
“There was no significant difference in 12-month weight loss between the HLF and HLC diets, and neither genotype pattern nor baseline insulin secretion was associated with the dietary effects on weight loss.”
If neither diet produced significant changes in physiological response to food, why were both diets successful in weight loss?
Examining the areas where the diets agree is a great place to begin. The research is pretty clear that trans fats can clog arteries, and that simple sugars are not only inflammatory, but also addictive. If you think about it, most diet plans are more alike than they’d like to admit. Both diets aim to help people overcome obesity by spontaneously reducing calorie intake.
Now, if reducing calories is as important as eating a nutritious diet, we can improve on both approaches. A study showed that using meal replacements (like our awesome Adrenal Reset Shake) help with sustained weight loss and even maintenance of ideal body weight! This is because meal replacements with high protein content and resistant starch help keep you satiated which makes it easier to reduce total calorie content.
The strategy is easy, you can drink an Adrenal Reset Protein shake for breakfast and lunch and end your day with a Lean and Green meal (you can download instructions on how to do it here). By using this strategy you can drop weight easily because all your micronutrient needs will be met and the protein and resistant starch will keep you satiated until dinner; effectively reducing your calorie intake spontaneously.
Finally, we recommend you reset your metabolism with this strategy for a total of four weeks. This gives you an end date and you won’t feel trapped doing an endless diet. After your four weeks, examine your progress. Reassess the next step, you might have reached your weight goal and are ready to continue your journey to perfect health.
