We all have different reasons for losing weight. For some of us it’s for medical reasons and for others it’s to look good. I think whatever the reason, we all have the right to have the best diets.
In recent years, there have been several so-called fad diets. Atkins is one of them and GI is another. They have one thing in common, they’re hard to follow and they’re not for everyone. If you look at forums and scientific journals, you understand that there are two sides to every story.
Recently, a group introduced the calorie shifting diet. It’s a variation of a diet used by bodybuilders, but it’s adjusted for us normal people. This diet has been around for about two years and although I am a frequent reader/poster in many of the major online weight loss forums, I haven’t heard many negative comments about this diet. Sure, there’s the common ‘You said I’ll lose 9 pounds but I only lost 6’, but overall everyone seems to be losing weight on this rapid weight loss diet.
The calorie shifting diet has many advantages if you compare it to other non-diet diets (no fat, no carbs, etc.). You can eat whatever food you like. You get an online menu calculator, tell it what you’d like to eat for the next 11 days, and with the press of a button it generates a full menu from the foods you like. If you don’t like certain foods or have an allergy, tell the program that too.
During the diet, you eat a lot. I usually skipped breakfast or lunch before starting this diet. Today, I eat more than before and I’m still losing weight! Why is that?
Well, the calorie shifting diet takes a new approach because it targets your metabolism. If you eat a certain type of calorie at a certain time, your body adapts to it, but then you surprise it by switching to another type of calorie.
It will confuse your metabolism and it will go crazy and burn fat like crazy.
