If you’ve been scrolling through your phone to find the best weight-loss program, you may have come across fad diets, get-thin-quick remedies, and fitness programs that require you to become a contortionist. However, these options are only ideal for some people. Most of us want simple solutions that are easy to adapt to our everyday lives and promise long-term results to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
One of the fads I keep coming across is Intermittent Fasting. This diet suggests losing weight by waiting at least eight hours between meals. Skip breakfast, eat lunch, and then eight hours later, eat dinner. Other schedules recommend fasting on alternate days or the 5:2 ratio of eating five days straight and skipping two. All these plans are meant to simulate our ancestors’ nomadic energy expenditure and help us lose weight.
However, we live in a new era and a world without food scarcity; how else could 40% of Americans weigh in as obese? Even if we do intermittent fasting and continue to gobble up everything in sight when we finally sit down to eat, we won’t lose weight; we’ll only develop unhealthy habits, increase our risk for heart disease, and more.
If you want a meal plan allowing you to eat six small meals per day, comment below or contact us. My Metabolic Meal Plan recommends eating several small low-calorie meals daily with snacks containing no more than 200-300 calories each. Throughout the program, we adjust your caloric intake depending on your weight and metabolic rate. It encourages increasing energy expenditure by incorporating resistive exercises and cardiovascular workouts as part of your plan. This program allows you to ease into a new way of eating and exercising by measuring and tracking your weight, girth, and metabolic rate, logging your meals and exercise sessions, and monitoring your progress.
Oh, and the buddy system is the most essential part of the plan. Having a friend, family member, personal trainer, or coach as your accountability partner will make your weight-loss journey easier, more fun, and more successful.
