Calorie restriction diets work!
Many diet programs use it.
Examples are Weight Watchers, Medical Weight Loss and lap band surgery which all work effectively by this method.
But many people are not able to afford these diet programs long term.
And surgery may be too risky for some, and too expensive for others.
Many people find restricting calories too difficult to just do on their own.
That's why Weight Watchers is successful; because they offer lots of tools and support.
If You can afford WEIGHT WATCHERS, go for it...they are very successful!
If not, this is a program that is more affordable.
THIS IS AN INEXPENSIVE DO IT YOURSELF WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM THAT WILL SAVE YOU TONS OF MONEY!
This weight loss program is very effective at just a fraction of the cost of other programs.
So what is it all about?
Well, let me start off by saying that, most people, restricting their calories by the, so called "watching their diet" method, will inevitably underestimate their calorie intake and fail to lose weight.
One study showed that dieticians consistently underestimated their calorie intake by about 25%. That is a huge amount for someone who is an expert at calorie counting.
IF A DIETICIAN CANNOT ESTIMATE THEIR CALORIC INTAKE CORRECTLY, HOW CAN THE AVERAGE PERSON BE EXPECTED TO DO IT?
The answer is: they simply can not.
Number one reason for failure of calorie restriction diets is estimating your calories. You will inevitably estimate wrong!
YOU HAVE TO WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN OR YOU WILL NOT LOSE WEIGHT.
I tell my patients if they are not writing their calories down or following a planned out diet plan THEY WILL NOT LOSE WEIGHT. Period.
I have a Master's degree in Nutrition and I have in my head the calories of a lot of foods and I promise you I CANNOT ESTIMATE HOW MANY CALORIES I AM EATING WITHOUT WEIGHING, MEASURING AND WRITING IT DOWN OR FOLLOWING A DIET PLAN.
Believe me, I have tried.
THE SECOND MAJOR PROBLEM IS THAT MOST PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO FIND OUT HOW MANY CALORIES THEY NEED TO CONSUME TO LOSE WEIGHT!
Many people are told by their doctors to just cut back on their food intake.
For some this may work.
But for many, it is simply not specific enough and they will most likely fail at losing weight.
Then, they will think that something must be wrong with them metabolically because they can't lose weight.
When, all they really did was follow a calorie restriction diet incorrectly.
I have not seen many websites that offer an easy way for people to calculate the caloric intake their body needs to lose weight.
THIS WEBSITE HAS A VERY EASY AND YES ......FREE WAY TO CALCULATE THE CALORIES YOUR BODY NEEDS TO LOSE WEIGHT!!!
SEE THE PAGE CALLED CALCULATE YOUR CALORIES, TO FIND OUT HOW MANY CALORIES YOU NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT.
Another problem is most calorie restriction diets do not help you learn how to eat right and prepare properly portioned meals to stay thin.
Nutrisystem uses calorie restriction and it works as long as you are on the diet.
As soon as you stop the diet, often you have not learned HOW to eat properly to stay thin.
All that you learned was how to remove the plastic wrap and stick the entree in the microwave.
So what is the solution?
Once you figure out the calorie level you need to follow to lose weight on the calculate your calories webpage then you have your number.
Once you have your number......
You can follow The Personalized Calorie Restriction Diet menu diet plan that can be found in my book "Recipe For Weight Loss"
if you prefer your diet in the form of magnets or wallet cards that you can keep on your frig or in your wallet, each diet comes as refrigerator magnets or wallet cards.
What is the Personalized Calorie Restriction Diet?
It is a planned out diet where you follow a recipe of what you are to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner including beverages.
Each meal is a separate menu.
For each calorie range there are 10 breakfast menus, 10 lunch menus and 10 dinner menus.
You can pick any combination of meals for the day, so there is a lot of flexibility.
The meals are delicious, traditional, healthy American favorites that most people love.
SEE THE PERSONALIZED CALORIE DIET PAGE OF THIS WEBSITE FOR MORE DETAILS on the all the meals offered in this plan.
It's like having your own personally designed meals tailor-made for you, to help you lose weight.
SOME PEOPLE HIRE PERSONAL CHEFS TO DO THIS FOR THEM!
The only difference here is that YOU are the Chef.
The food is fresh and delicious and prepared by you!
And if more than one person in your family is on a diet, you don't have to make separate things because each meal comes in 1200 to 2400 calorie versions.
The Personalized Calorie Restriction Diet eliminates all the work of calorie restricting by having the meals already counted out for you.
It's easy, fast and much less stressful.
And you learn how to prepare foods for the calorie amount you need to lose weight.
This is a valuable life skill that will help you stay slim for life!
